We respect a person’s privacy. We cannot operate our business without processing certain personal data. We therefore consider it important that the processing of your personal data takes place in a manner which is in accordance with the existing guarantees for the protection of your privacy. That is partly the reason that the Dutch Association of Insurers has drawn up a code of conduct for the processing of personal data. That code of conduct is a result of the existing statutory regulations for the protection of personal data. We comply with this code of conduct in all our activities. Here you will find an explanation of what this means for you.
Upon taking out an insurance at Anker, we will ask you for a number of personal data. We consider it important that the processing of your personal data takes place in a manner which is in accordance with the existing guarantees for the protection of your privacy. We therefore will exercise due care when processing your personal data and comply with the provisions of the Personal Data Protection Act and other privacy regulations. In addition, a code of conduct has been drawn up by banks and insurers for the compliance with privacy regulations: the ‘Code of Conduct for the Processing of Personal Data by Financial Institutions’. You can consult this code of conduct on www.verzekeraars.nl (at ‘Publications’, ‘Downloads’, ‘Code of Conduct’).
For what purpose do we process your personal data?
We process your personal data for the execution of marketing activities, for statistical analysis and in order to be able to comply with a number of statutory obligations. We will, of course, only process those data necessary for that purpose. In other words: we ensure that for each kind of processing of personal data only those personal data will be processed which are accurate, sufficient, relevant to the case and not excessive.
Inspection and correction
When you already maintain a business relationship with our company, you may ask us which data we process automatically or which data are incorporated in a file.

Within four weeks of your request we will inform you whether we are able to comply with your request.
