The table below is a summary of the types of Personal Information used where necessary in connection with each main purpose described above. Personal Information will only be processed for these purposes where permitted under applicable law.
We may use Personal Information to detect, investigate and prevent fraud, and this may include sharing Personal Information with other insurers and law enforcement agencies.

For further details, please see the section below ‘Who is Personal Information shared with?' or please contact us using the details provided below (see section below ‘Who to contact about your Personal Information?’).
Sometimes we use automated decision making tools (i.e. where a person is not involved in the decision).
We typically use these tools when making straightforward decisions about you (for example, in certain claims handling and medical screening processes).
Where this is the case we provide you with more information so you understand what is involved.
Sometimes, as part of our business operations, decisions about you are taken using automated computer software and systems. These decisions do not involve human input, and the software and systems apply pre-defined logic programming and criteria to make a decision and assess how we deal with you in connection with the provision of services.
For example, we sometimes use automated decision making as part of a process to:
We provide you with more information in relation to any automated decision processes before or at the time that we intend to make decisions in this way. You have the right in certain circumstances not to be subject to a decision which is based solely on automated processing. Please see the section below 'What are your Personal Information rights?' below for further details of this right.

The AIG group comprises a number of companies, including, but not limited to, the AIG parent company American International Group, Inc., AIG Europe Limited (AEL) and AEL country branches in Europe, Laya Healthcare Limited and AIG Life Limited.

Personal Information may be shared between AIG group companies and other third parties, including:
In connection with the purposes described above (see section above 'How do we use Personal Information?'), we sometimes need to share your Personal Information with third parties (this can involve third parties disclosing Personal Information to us and us disclosing Personal Information to them).

|Type of third party|| |

A list of the key AIG group companies is available here www.aig.com/datacontrollers
Other insurance and insurance distribution parties
Where permitted by applicable law, AIG may share Personal Information with other third parties, for example, other insurers, reinsurers, insurance and reinsurance brokers, other intermediaries and agents, appointed representatives, distributors, affinity marketing partners and financial institutions, securities firms and other business partners.
Our service providers
External third party service providers, such as medical and security professionals, accountants, actuaries, auditors, experts, lawyers and other professional advisors; travel and medical assistance providers; call centre service providers; IT systems, support and hosting service providers; printing, advertising, marketing and market research, and data analysis service providers; banks and financial institutions that service our accounts; third party claim administrators; document and records management providers; claim investigators and adjusters; construction consultants; engineers; examiners; jury consultants; translators; and other third party vendors and outsourced service providers that assist us in carrying out business activities.
Recipients of your social media sharing activity
Government authorities and third parties involved in legal proceedings
We may also share Personal Information with: (a) government or other public authorities (including, but not limited to, workers’ compensation boards, courts, regulatory bodies, law enforcement agencies, tax authorities and criminal investigations agencies); and (b) third party participants in legal proceedings and their accountants, auditors, lawyers, and other advisors and representatives, as we believe to be necessary or appropriate.
Other third parties
We may share Personal Information with payees; emergency providers (fire, police and medical emergency services); retailers; medical networks, organisations and providers; travel carriers; credit bureaus; credit reporting agencies; other people involved in an incident that is the subject of a claim; as well as purchasers and prospective purchasers or other parties in any actual or proposed reorganisation, merger, sale, joint venture, assignment, transfer or other transaction relating to all or any portion of our businesses, assets, companies or stock (i.e. company shares).
Where permitted by applicable law, Personal Information (including details of injuries) may be put on registers of claims and shared with other insurers. We may search these registers when dealing with claims to prevent, detect and investigate fraud.
If you benefit from another party’s insurance policy or service arrangement with AIG (for example, a policy taken out by your employer), Personal Information relating to the administration of that insurance policy or service may be shared with that other party.
Personal Information may also be shared by you on message boards, chat, profile pages and blogs, and other AIG Digital Services to which you are able to post information and materials (including, without limitation, our Social Media Content). Please note that any information you post or disclose through these services will become public information, and may be available to visitors and users of the AIG Digital Services and to the general public. We urge you to be very careful when deciding to disclose your Personal Information, or any other information, when using the AIG Digital Services.
We may process Personal Information both nationally and internationally.
This may include transferring Personal Information outside the European Economic Area (EEA).
We take additional steps to ensure the security of Personal Information when we transfer it outside the EEA.
Due to the global nature of our business activities, for the purposes set out above (see section entitled 'How do we use Personal Information?'), depending on the nature of our relationship with you, we will transfer Personal Information to parties located in other countries (including the USA, China, Mexico, Malaysia, Philippines, Bermuda and other countries that have data protection regimes which are different to those in the country where you are based, including countries which have not been found to provide adequate protection for Personal Information by the European Commission).
For example, we may transfer Personal Information in order to process international travel insurance claims and provide emergency medical assistance services when you are abroad. We may transfer information internationally to our group companies, service providers, business partners, government or public authorities, and other third parties.
When making these transfers, we will take steps to ensure that your Personal Information is adequately protected and transferred in accordance with the requirements of data protection law.
This typically involves the use of data transfer agreements in the form approved by the European Commission and permitted under Article 46 of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) (the relevant data protection law). If there is no data transfer agreement in place, we may use other mechanisms recognised by the GDPR as ensuring an adequate level of protection for Personal Information transferred outside the EEA (for example, the US Privacy Shield framework or any framework that replaces it).
For further information about these transfers and to request details of the safeguards in place, please contact us using the details below (see section below ‘Who to contact about your Personal Information?’).
Information security is extremely important to us.
We put in place technical and physical security measures to keep Personal Information safe and secure.
If, despite our efforts, you believe that Personal Information is no longer secure, please tell us so that we can resolve any security issue.
AIG uses appropriate technical, physical, legal and organisational measures, which comply with data protection laws to keep Personal Information secure.
As most of the Personal Information we hold is stored electronically we have implemented appropriate IT security measures to ensure this Personal Information is kept secure. For example, we may use anti-virus protection systems, firewalls, and data encryption technologies. We have procedures in place at our premises to keep any hard copy records physically secure. We also train our staff regularly on data protection and information security.
When AIG engages a third party (including our service providers) to collect or otherwise process Personal Information on our behalf, the third party will be selected carefully and required to use appropriate security measures to protect the confidentiality and security of Personal Information.
Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet or electronic data storage system can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. If you have reason to believe that your interaction with us is no longer secure (for example, if you feel that the security of any Personal Information you might have sent to us has been compromised), please immediately notify us (see section below ‘Who to contact about your Personal Information?’).
To comply with the law, we need to tell you the legal justification we rely on for using your Personal Information. The legal justification depends on the purpose for using your Personal Information, but it will usually be considered to be in our legitimate interests or involve your consent.
Data protection law seeks to ensure that the way Personal Information is used is fair.
To comply with the law, we need to tell you the legal justification we rely on for using your Personal Information.
While the law provides several legal justifications, the table below describes the main legal justifications that apply to our purposes for using Personal Information.
We may be required to obtain Personal Information from you to comply with applicable legal requirements, and certain Personal Information may be needed to enable us to fulfil the terms of our contract with you (or someone else), or in preparation of entering into a contract with you (or someone else). We may inform you of this at the time that we are obtaining the Personal Information from you. In these circumstances, if you do not provide the relevant Personal Information to us, we may not be able to provide our products or services to you. If you would like further information, please contact us using the details below (see section below ‘Who to contact about your Personal Information?’).

Additional legal justifications may also be available in the country in which you are based and we may also rely on these justifications from time to time.
Processing of Personal Information relating to criminal convictions and offences is subject to the requirements of applicable law.
Where we rely on our legitimate business interests or the legitimate interests of a third party to justify the purposes for using your Personal Information, those legitimate interests will be set out in a supplemental privacy notice (which is tailored to our relationship with you where this is useful to provide you with a full picture of how we collect and use Personal Information), but in any event our legitimate interests will usually be:
We may need to collect, use and disclose Personal Information in connection with matters of important public interest, for instance when complying with our obligations under anti-money laundering and terrorist financing laws and regulations, and other laws and regulations aimed at preventing financial crime. In these cases, the legal justification for our use of Personal Information is that the use is necessary for matters of public interest. Additional justifications may also apply depending on the circumstances.
To protect you, our business and third parties we may record calls and monitor communications between us.
We may record telephone calls with you so that we can:

We will keep Personal Information for as long as is necessary for the purposes for which we collect it. The precise period will depend on the purpose for which we hold your information. In addition, as a regulated financial services institution, there are laws and regulations that apply to us which set minimum periods for retention of Personal Information. We will provide you with further information if appropriate to give you a full picture of how we collect and use your Personal Information.
The number of years varies depending on the nature of the product or service provided – for example, for certain insurance policies it may be necessary to keep the Personal Information for several years after the expiry of the policy. Among other reasons, we retain the information in order to respond to any queries or concerns that may be raised at a later date with respect to the policy or the handling of a claim. Typically, for consumer insurance products, the retention period is 10 years.
For further information about the period of time for which we retain your Personal Information, please contact us using the details below (see section below ‘Who to contact about your Personal Information?’).
