Collection of personal information
The personal information we collect about you is used to establish your identity and to prevent or detect fraud. We only collect the information necessary for the purpose of managing the file to the extent permitted by law.
As soon as you access the Sogemec Assurances website, as is the procedure for most websites, certain information that does not allow you to be personally identified is collected automatically. This includes, in particular, the country from which you access the site, the domain name and the IP address with which you access the site, as well as the type of browser and the operating system you use. Sogemec Assurances uses this information strictly for statistical purposes to analyze traffic to its website and to enable it to improve the visitor experience.
Sogemec Assurances is required to obtain your consent before disclosing personal information about you. Under no circumstances do we sell or share personal information with other companies. However, we share your information with our partners for the purposes of administration, underwriting and acceptance of your insurance application.
You can access the personal information we have in your file upon request. You may consult and, if necessary, modify your file at any time by contacting us.
Accuracy of information
We make every effort to maintain the accuracy of your personal information and to ensure that it is complete and up-to-date. We generally rely on you to keep the information up-to-date, for example by providing us with your new address when you move, and other contact details. If you find any errors in our information or if information about you changes, you must notify us immediately so that we can make the necessary modifications.
