A cookie is a small text file that a website saves on your computer or mobile device when you visit the site. It enables the website to remember your actions and preferences (such as font size and other display preferences) over a period of time, so you do not have to keep re-entering them whenever you come back to the site or browse from one page to another.
You can also accept, reject or delete cookies on your computer by modifying the settings in your browser. If you do this, however, you may have to manually adjust some preferences every time you visit a site and some services and functionalities of our Site may not work.

Social media functions and social plug-ins are embedded in our Site in the form of small icons. We currently embed Twitter, LinkedIn and other social networks as icons on our Site.
We exclusively embed deactivated icons, which do not contact the servers of these external networks when our Site is accessed. The buttons become active and create a connection only if you deliberately click an icon, thus indicating your consent to communicating with such providers. By clicking on these icons you leave our Site and we do not record which external network you activate.
When you interact with these social plug-ins – for example, by entering a comment – a corresponding notification is sent to the social network and saved in accordance with the respective network’s policy. Please consult the respective social network’s data protection statement with regard to the scope and purpose of the data collected, its use and processing, as well as your respective rights and options in protecting your privacy.
PartnerRe Ltd is headquartered in Bermuda and while PartnerRe has active reinsurance businesses in many countries around the globe, if you decide to use the Site, your personal data may be processed, stored and/or transferred outside your home country in jurisdictions (e.g. Bermuda or the United States of America) in which the data protection and privacy laws may not offer the same level of protection as those in the country where you reside or are a citizen. If you prefer not to have your personal data transferred to such countries, do not use the Site.
When we transfer your personal data to other countries outside the EEA, we establish legal grounds for such a transfer, mainly in the form of standard contractual clauses or other legal grounds permitted by applicable legal requirements.
To regulate intra group personal data transfers, PartnerRe has executed a master data transfer agreement. For more information on the appropriate safeguards in place, please contact us at the details contained in the “Contact us” section below.
We will keep your personal data only for so long as is necessary and for the purpose for which it was originally collected and any other permissible, related purpose. Beyond that, we retain personal data for a period of time that reasonably allows us to investigate, commence or defend legal claims brought by or against us or our clients, comply with our regulatory obligations and conduct analysis.
We securely destroy personal data when its retention period has expired. We retain aggregated or anonymized data (which is not treated as personal data under this privacy notice) for longer.
We implement technical and organizational measures to ensure a level of security appropriate to the risk to the personal data we process. These measures are aimed at ensuring the on-going integrity and confidentiality of personal data. We evaluate these measures on a regular basis to ensure the security of the processing.
(Residents of the State of California shall refer to Section 12)
We generally collect personal data voluntarily given to us by you.
Under certain conditions, you may have the right to require us to:
In certain circumstances, we may need to restrict the above rights in order to safeguard the public interest (e.g. the prevention or detection of crime) and our interests (e.g. the maintenance of legal privilege). Upon receipt of a request from you exercising any of the above-listed rights, we will need to verify your identity.
If you are a resident of the State of California, subject to certain exceptions as set forth by law, you (or an authorized agent acting on your behalf) have the right to ask us to:
Any disclosure(s) we make pursuant to your request under this Section 12 will cover only the 12-month period preceding our receipt of your request.
In certain circumstances, we may need to restrict the above rights in order to safeguard the public interest (e.g. the prevention or detection of crime) and our interests (e.g. the maintenance of legal privilege).
You have the right not to receive discriminatory treatment from us for exercising the rights conferred to you under the California Consumer Privacy Act.
If you would like to exercise any of the above California-specific rights, you (or an authorized agent acting on your behalf) can e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org or call us at 1-800-261-3164.
Upon receipt of a request from you exercising any of the above-listed rights, we will need to verify your identity. To do so, we will send you a pre-assessment form within 10 business days of receiving your request. Such pre-assessment form will, among other things, request certain contact information and ask that you certify that you are either the consumer whose personal data is the subject of the request or the authorized representative of such consumer.
If you are not satisfied with our use of your personal data or our response to any request by you to exercise any of your rights in Section 11 or Section 12 of this Policy, or if you think that we have breached the applicable data protection laws, then you may have the right to complain to your local supervisory authority (i.e. the supervisory in the jurisdiction where you live or work) or the supervisory authority of the jurisdiction where you believe an infringement of data protection laws has occurred. Each supervisory authority may have a different process for lodging complaints so we encourage you to contact the relevant supervisory authority first to check this.
