We process your personal information for the purposes set out in this privacy notice. We have also set out some legal reasons why we may process your personal information (these depend on what category of personal information we are processing). We normally process standard personal information if this is necessary to provide the services set out in a contract, it is in our or a third party’s legitimate interests or it is required or allowed by any law that applies.

You have the right to object to direct marketing and profiling (the automated processing of your information to help us evaluate certain things about you, for example, your personal preferences and your interests) relating to direct marketing. Please see the section about your rights for more details.
Like many businesses, we sometimes use automation to provide you with a quicker, better, more consistent and fair service, and marketing information we think will be of interest to you. This will involve evaluating information about you.
You have the right to object to direct marketing and profiling relating to direct marketing. You may also have the right to object to other types of profiling set out below. You can contact us to exercise these rights here.
By law, we must tell you if we use profiling of your personal information.
We share your information within the Accora Group, with people acting on your behalf and with others who help us provide products and services to you (for example, health-care providers and medical-assistance providers).

If we share your personal information, we will make sure appropriate protection is in place to protect your personal information in line with data-protection laws.
We deal with many international organisations and use global information systems. As a result, we transfer your personal information to countries outside the EEA (the EU member states plus Norway, Liechtenstein and Iceland) for the purposes set out in this privacy notice. Not all countries outside the EEA have data-protection laws that are similar to those in the EEA and if so, the European Commission may not consider those countries as providing an adequate level of data protection.
We take steps to make sure that, when we transfer your personal information to another country, appropriate protection is in place, in line with data-protection laws. Often, this protection is set out under a contract with the organisation who receives that information. For more information about this protection, please contact us here.
We keep your personal information in line with set periods calculated using the following criteria.
If you would like more information about how long we will keep your information for, please contact us here.
You have the following rights (certain exceptions apply).
Please note: Other than your right to object to the use of your data for direct marketing (and profiling to the extent used for the purposes of direct marketing), your rights are not absolute: they do not always apply in all cases and we will let you know in our correspondence with you how we will be able to comply with your request.
If you make a request, we will ask you to confirm your identity if we need to, and to provide information that helps us to understand your request better. If we do not meet your request, we will explain why.
In order to exercise your rights please contact us here.
If you have any questions, comments, complaints or suggestions in relation to this notice, or any other concerns about the way in which we process information about you, please contact our GDPR Owner at email@example.com or through our website here.
