4. What is the purpose we use your data for and on what legal basis we process it?

This applies when we present, offer or make other preparations related for the conclusion of the insurance or reinsurance contracts or when we assist with the servicing and performance of such contracts, including in case of insurance event and the performance of our statutory duties as insurance brokers such as:

Observing the renewal terms;
Assistance with insurance claims handling;
Performance of a contract is the legal basis for processing when you use our additional services such as negotiating and administering prepaid sports centres’ cards, negotiations and organisation of medical examinations etc.
We may process your data on the basis of our statutory duties such as identification of persons willing to purchase a specific type of insurance, or to check if any sanctions apply.
In some cases, we process your personal data on the basis of our legitimate interest or the legitimate interest of our principal. This applies to insurance products or other services provided by Marins to their principal for the benefit of а third party-natural person, as well as for products and services for the benefit of the principal, which require the personal data processing of а third party-natural person.

5. How long do we keep your personal data?
Marins processes your personal data as long as it is needed for the performance of the service, then it is archived. The periods for keeping an archive are determined by the law. E.g.:
Your insurance policy may have expired, but in accordance with the Accounting Act, we need to keep it for 10 more years for the purpose of tax control.
The broker has statutory duty to provide claims handling assistance to its client, therefore we keep information and documents for all insurance claims until the expiration of the period of limitation.
When the purpose of processing is only checking the completeness of documentation and/or transferring such documentation to the insurer, in most of the cases we do not keep copies of your claims and their attachments, thus complying with the principle of minimizing the processed data.
