Purpose and legal basis for the processing of personal data

KRSA process personal data in compliance with the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), the Swiss Data Protection Act and all other applicable national laws.

When KRSA, as a Reinsurer, enters into a Reinsurance Agreement or Treaty with a cedant (insurance and reinsurance companies) to provide reinsurance coverage, KRSA processes anonymized personal data to comply with the obligations under the reinsurance contract. The legal basis is therefore the fulfilment of the reinsurance contract.

KRSA receives and processes personal data of its employees and of job applicants. In case of employees, KRSA processes personal data in order to fulfil the obligations under the employment contract. In case of job applicants, the data subject has given consent of his or her data such that the processing of personal data is lawful in accordance with article 6 of GDPR.

Furthermore, KRSA processes personal data in an anonymized form in order to produce insurance-specific statistics necessary for setting new tariffs or meet regulatory requirements. Such statistical processing activities are based on our legitimate interest in compliance with article 6 of GDPR.
