Updating Personal Information
We will try to keep the Personal Information we collect as accurate, complete and up to date as is necessary for the purpose defined in this policy. From time to time we may request you to update your Personal Information by contacting your broker. You are able to review or update any Personal Information that we hold at any time by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org or phoning us. Please note that in order to better protect you and safeguard your Personal Information, we take steps to verify your identity before granting you access to your account or making any corrections to your Personal Information.
You will have the option at all times to indicate if you want to receive marketing and promotional material from Indwe and/or its affiliates. If you choose to “Opt-Out” you will still receive communication from us regarding any administration requirements on your insurance portfolio as well as enhancements on current product and service. You will however not receive any updates on new products or services we offer, which might have a negative effect on your risk portfolio.
As we remain duty bound as your insurance broker and advisor to keep you abreast of relevant new insurance products and covers as these become available, we will ask your specific permission to enable us to keep you informed as appropriate. You do however retain the right to disallow us from contacting you in this regard which then will negatively affect our contractual duty towards you.
If at any stage Indwe undergoes a change in ownership, or a merger with, acquisition by, or sale of assets to, another entity, we may assign our rights to the Personal Information we process to a successor, purchaser, or separate entity. We will disclose the transfer by notifying all for whom we hold Personal Information on. If you are concerned about your Personal Information migrating to a new owner, you may request us to delete your personal information, other than in respect of your contracts of insurance which will be invalidated without such information.
Indwe has taken all necessary precautionary measures to ensure that any Personal Data collected and stored is done in line with all data protection laws. All email communication is end-to-end encrypted to ensure that whenever communication occurs over email, that it is safely done. Internal servers as well as those hosted by 3rd party suppliers are all done in a secure environment with appropriate firewalls and other advanced security measures in place to prevent interference from outside intruders. Data classification ensures restricted access is given to sensitive information and only given for those employees who require it to fulfil their job responsibilities. Disaster recovery procedures have also been implemented where appropriate.
Transfer to Another Country
Indwe will not transfer any personal information across a country border without your prior written consent. Personal information may be stored on servers located outside the country in which it was collected in a foreign country whose laws protecting personal information may not be as stringent as the laws in the country in which it was collected. You consent to us processing your personal information in a foreign country whose laws regarding processing of personal information may be less stringent.
Incident and Breach
You will be informed as soon as any breach or possible breach occurred in which your data might have been obtained by any third party unlawfully. Indwe has a Breach Policy and procedure in place to ensure the damage in this event is handled with urgency to minimize the loss.
