Allianz gives a limited amount of information, only as necessary, who provide services to you, through Allianz. These suppliers and agents may be located in Canada or other jurisdictions or countries and may disclose information in response to valid demands or requests from governments, regulators, courts and law enforcement authorities in those jurisdictions or countries.
Allianz may release information in response to a search warrant, court order or other demand or inquiry which we believe to be valid. This may include requests from regulators, including self-regulators, who are responsible for ensuring Allianz is in compliance with applicable regulations.
Allianz may also disclose information to any person or organization, including an investigative body, in order to prevent, detect or suppress financial abuse, fraud, criminal activity, protect our assets and interests, or manage or settle any actual or potential loss or in the case of a breach of agreement or contravention of law. Allianz may also disclose this Information outside of Quebec or your province of residence/Canada with its agents, brokers and other necessary parties for the purposes of deciding on a claim, providing emergency assistance or verifying your coverage with insurance providers. Allianz will endeavor to take measures to ensure that the information receives an adequate level of protection when being transferred outside the province of Quebec.
The length of time Allianz retains information varies depending on the product or service and the nature of the information. This period may extend beyond the end of your relationship with Allianz but only for so long as it is necessary for Allianz to have sufficient information to respond to any issue that may arise at a later date or for legal or regulatory purposes. When your information is no longer needed for these purposes, we have procedures to destroy, delete or erase it, or convert it to an anonymous form.
