Privacy statement

Protecting individual privacy and your personal data is important to us. Therefore, any personal data collected by us will be with your knowledge and/or consent. Here we wish to outline what information we record and for what purposes this information is used.

What information do we record and for what purpose?

When you access this website, possible identification data (IP address) and other information (date, time, page viewed) are saved on our server for a period of four weeks for data security purposes. The data will not be used for any other purpose, with the exception of statistics and then only in such a way that ensures anonymity, or passed on to third parties.

We do not use Java Applets or Active X Controls. For technical reasons, we use session cookies on our website, which are stored on your hard disk for the duration of the link. These session cookies are not used to record your user behaviour or collect any personal information about you. Session cookies are automatically deleted as soon as you leave our website or the dialog is ended. When using our internet services, you can decide whether you wish to accept or decline these cookies by modifying the settings in your browser. If session cookies are disabled on your browser, however, you may not be able to use certain features or sections of our website requiring a safe connection. If you access sections of our website which are reserved for users with special authorisation rights and where, for technical reasons or on legal grounds, additional personal data are kept, we expressly point this out there.

The Munich Re Foundation will treat any personal details sent when you access our home page in strictest confidence in accordance with the ruling provisions governing data protection at Munich Re's home office. If you send us an e-mail or complete and submit the online forms on our website, your personal data (e.g. name or e-mail address) will be used only for our correspondence with you in order to send you the requested documents or information or for any other purpose explicitly stipulated on the individual form. Personal data will be passed on to third parties only where this is necessary to provide the services requested by you.

We use SSL (Secure Socket Layer) encryption for the dialog forms provided on our web pages. SSL protects the data you send us against unauthorised third-party access. For your own security, therefore, please always use the dialog forms. If you send us unencrypted data in a standard e-mail, it is possible that unauthorised persons may gain access to or alter the data when it is transferred via the internet.

Do you have any other questions?
