Questions and answers on data protection
Is my sensitive data protected during transmission to AXA?
Yes. Websites to which you transmit sensitive or personal data are secured against third-party access by secure socket layer (SSL) encryption technology. On the internet, however, it is generally impossible to guarantee the completeness, confidentiality and security of data, so AXA and AXA-ARAG reject all liability:
- for the security of your data during transmission over the internet
- in the event that a third party changes, inspects, accepts, uses or sells the data that you or AXA entered
- for malfunctions in the internet, imported data of any kind (also viruses), and in connection with links from and to other websites.
When you access AXA's or AXA-ARAG's website, you declare your agreement with the above conditions.
What happens to my data in case of an online notification of a legal case?
These data are exclusively forwarded to AXA-ARAG. AXA-ARAG handles these data confidentially and does not pass them on to any other companies in the AXA Group.
