Data Protection

We place special emphasis on compliance with all data protection requirements.

Introduction

Through Internet technology and electronic data processing, individuals can easily lose track of where their data is stored and for what purpose. Especially in the financial area, it is particularly important to ensure confidentiality by careful and secure handling of customer data. Therefore, we would like to explain to the visitors of our website how Athora Holding Ltd. (individually and collectively with its subsidiaries, “Athora”, “us”, “we” or “our”) guarantees the confidentiality of their personal data and respects privacy rights.

Athora guarantees the confidentiality of personal data as follows

  • Our employees maintain their confidentiality obligations
  • our security measures comply with state-of-the-art technology and
  • a corporate Data Protection Officer and internal review ensures compliance of our “Privacy Statement.”

Your rights

You are entitled to access information on the stored personal data and may exercise the right of correction of errors, blocking and deletion.

Secure internet communication

In general, internet as a medium is not as secure as, for example, a telephone line. Data transfers are easier to intercept, record or even modify by unauthorized third parties on the internet. To ensure the confidentiality of communications, we use SSL encryption. According to current knowledge, 128-bit encryption is considered secure. Regular browsers support the SSL method.

Updating this data protection declaration

When Athora introduces new products or services, modifies internet procedures or if internet and IT security technology is further developed, the “Data Protection Declaration” must be updated. We therefore reserve the right to amend or supplement this declaration as required. The modification will be published here. The current version is dated 04/11/2016.
