QBE is committed to respecting our customers’ privacy and protecting their personal data from misuse or unauthorised disclosure and complying with privacy laws.
QBE’s Global Privacy Framework defines the core principles of QBE’s privacy program which are the foundation of QBE’s ongoing compliance with privacy laws globally. The Framework requires that QBE’s privacy programs support our four key privacy principles:
Principle 1 – Embed - QBE will embed a culture of respect for privacy that enables compliance. Good privacy management begins with good governance and respect for privacy issues and its risk across our organisation’s activities. #dotherightthing
Principle 2 – Establish - QBE will establish robust and effective privacy practices, procedures and systems. Good privacy management requires the development and implementation of robust and effective practices, procedures and systems.
Principle 3 – Evaluate – QBE will regularly examine the effectiveness and appropriateness of our privacy practices, procedures and systems to ensure they remain effective and appropriate.
Principle 4 – Enhance – QBE will enhance and continuously improve our response to privacy issues. Good privacy management requires the development and implementation of robust and effective practices, procedures and systems.
The Framework should be read in the context of local privacy requirements and laws.
The Framework applies across QBE and to all our divisions, along with our employees, contractors, contingent workers, directors and agents of QBE and all of QBE’s controlled entities and to QBE joint ventures, where appropriate.
QBE has Group and local Privacy Officers. The Group Privacy Officer can be contacted via firstname.lastname@example.org
