Data Protection & Privacy Notice
Chedid Re is committed to protecting all personal data it holds irrespective of where its companies are located.
We recognize that the lawful and correct treatment of personal data is very important to successful operations and to maintaining our business partners’ data and confidence. Any personal data which we collect, record or use in any way whether it is held on paper, on computer or other media will have appropriate safeguards applied to it to ensure that we comply with local data protection regulations and the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) where applicable.
Chedid Re uses a self-assessment approach to assure compliance with the GDPR, and will periodically verify that this Privacy Notice is accurate, comprehensive for the information intended to be covered, prominently displayed, and is completely implemented and accessible.
What will we do with your information?
Personal data will not be used for purposes other than those for which it was collected, except where required by law. Personal data will be retained only if necessary for the fulfilment of those purposes. As a reinsurance broker Chedid Re may collect and use relevant information about individual insureds to assess the reinsurance risk and seek the reinsurance market support.
This information may include individual insured's details such as their name, address and contact details and any other information that Chedid Re collects about them in connection with the reinsurance cover. This information may include more sensitive details such as information about their age, gender, race, ethnic origin, health and employment.
To enable Chedid Re to use individual insured's details in accordance with applicable data protection laws, the Ceding company must obtain consent of use of the individual’s data and provide those individuals with certain information about how their details in connection with the reinsurance cover will be used. Any consent required will be deemed as received by the Ceding Company prior to Chedid Re handling any business placement for the Cedant.
Chedid Re is committed to using only the personal information needed to assist with the reinsurance placement and restricting use and access to the data to concerned personnel. To help this be achieved, Ceding companies should only provide Chedid Re with necessary information only as required by reinsurers to proceed with the reinsurance placement. Moreover, reinsurers are advised to specify the type of information requested from insureds to assess the risk in order to avoid transfer of data that is irrelevant to the placement.
