This Privacy Statement concerns the online collection of personal data on our NewRe Site. “Personal data” means information relating to an identified or identifiable person. Protecting individual privacy and your personal data is important to us and it is in our mutual interests that we take our responsibility to guarantee the privacy of your data very seriously, in compliance with the applicable provisions of data protection law. We use state-of-the-art technology to communicate with you while keeping your data secure. The information we record and the use it is put to are given below.
You are generally free to visit our website anonymously. We do not save any personal or traceable data (e.g. IP addresses) of visitors to our website. We collect impersonal data about visits to our website (date, time, pages visited, navigation, software used) to have user habits anonymously analysed by an external service provider. The data is rendered anonymous before it is saved by the service provider.

This data cannot be traced to individual people. We do not merge this data with other data sources.

Use of personal data
New Reinsurance Company Ltd., incorporated under the laws of Switzerland, is responsible as data controller for the processing of your personal data on this Site. We will treat any personal details sent when you access our home page in strictest confidence in accordance with the prevailing provisions governing data protection at the company’s home office. If you send us an e-mail or complete and submit an on-line form 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.
Within New Reinsurance Company Ltd., only those staff and departments who are responsible for the respective process will receive your data. The data may also be disclosed to group internal or external service providers for the purposes set out above. Using service providers is necessary, for example, for the administration and maintenance of our IT systems. We also use external service providers for support when managing job applicants, for example. If we process any of your personal data for certain purposes, you will receive a notice about how exactly your data is being used. You may also request the information from our Legal & Compliance team at LegalCompliance@newre.com.
If personal data needs to be transferred to service providers or Group companies outside Switzerland or the European Economic Area (EEA), this will be done only if the Federal Data Protection and Information Commissioner has confirmed that the respective country’s level of data protection is sufficient, or if data protection is otherwise sufficiently guaranteed (for example through standard EU contractual clauses, Privacy Shield).
