    Your privacy and security are important to us

    Your privacy is important to you and to us. We value the personal information you give us and will take all reasonable precautions to prevent unauthorised access to that information.

    Why do we collect information from you?

    We need personal information to be able to supply online insurance products and services to you and to assess and pay any claims. This includes providing you with quotes, carrying out variations, cancellations or renewals of policies, managing claims, exercising any right of subrogation and compiling statistics to allow us to improve our products and services for you.

    We want to provide you with market leading products and services and related information. Unless you opt-out where indicated during your application or subsequently ask us to stop, we may use or share your information to market insurance, financial products, securities and other products and related services such as health, wellness and medical, food and beverages, travel and transportation (in respect of which we may or may not be remunerated). These products may be provided by or marketed by us, our group companies or our business partners. We don't send unsolicited bulk emails.

    We will not be using the personal information we collect from you for any purpose other than the purposes stated here and in our Personal Information Collection Statement.

    What type of information do we collect from you?

    The personal information we collect includes your name, address, date of birth, contact details (for example phone and email), driving (for car insurance policies) and other background history and information about your insurance experience, including data about your transactions with us.

    We may also collect personal information about someone else from you, for example when you apply for a product or service in joint names or where you are nominating other people on your policy (for example another driver). If you provide personal information to us about someone else, you're responsible for telling the other person that you've provided personal information about them to us.

    While we will collect most of the information from you, we might also collect personal information about you from someone else when we are processing your application for insurance coverage or are assessing a claim under your policy. This may include another insurer, an insurance investigator, claims manager or a medical provider.

    How do we collect personal information on our website?

    The information we collect about you depends on how you use our website.

    When you visit our website we record and collect personal information so we can give you an accurate quote and, if you purchase a policy, to pay claims and manage your insurance policy. We use recognised payment service providers to process your insurance payments.

    When you visit and browse our website, we also collect general information (like your internet protocol (IP) address) that won't personally identify you. This information allows us to maintain, evaluate and improve our site's performance.

    We may also use external companies to web-host, help us maintain our website, problem solve and to gather non-personal information to evaluate the effectiveness of online marketing activities.

    Links to other sites

    We may provide links to other websites which may be of interest to you. These other websites are not subject to this Online Security and Privacy Statement and you should read the privacy and security statements on those websites to understand how they deal with your personal information.

    We shall not be held liable for any loss or damage suffered by you arising from your access and/or use of these websites.

    Would we send you any direct marketing materials?

    We would like to provide you with the most updated products and services and related information available in market. If you do not wish to receive these direct marketing materials, please inform us through email or by phone and select or indicate to us where specified at the time of collection of personal data your objection to receive any direct marketing materials, information or communications irrelevant to your policy. We shall not send you any email communications for direct marketing purpose without your consent.

    What do we do with emails?

    To enable us to understand your needs and provide you with assistance, we would keep the contents of any email sessions you have with us.

    Will we disclose your information to others?

    To provide you with the insurance that suits you, we may disclose your personal information on a confidential basis to other parties who help us provide our products and services. This may be our business partners, parties involved in supporting the claims process like loss adjusters, managers and assessors, repairers and suppliers, investigators and recovery agents. It may also be disclosed to police, law and credit enforcement groups, legal advisors and health providers, or parties assisting us to provide communication services (like mailing). Your personal information may further be transferred to any parent, subsidiary or affiliate of Well Link General Insurance Company Limited in Hong Kong or out of Hong Kong, or to any association or federation of insurance companies in Hong Kong, any actual or proposed assignee or participant or sub-participant or transferee of our rights in respect your personal information.

    Those external companies who assist us to web-host, help us maintain our website, problem solve and to gather non-personal information to evaluate the effectiveness of online marketing activities, may also have access to your personal information.

    We impose security and confidentiality requirements on how they handle your personal information and we limit the use of it to the specific purpose for which we supplied it.

    How can you access or correct your personal information?

    If at any time you believe the personal information we have about you is not accurate, please contact Customer Care Manager at customerservice@wli.com.hk or at phone no. 2884 8888 and we will change it straightaway. You may also request access to the personal information we have about you at the contact details above. [We may charge a reasonable fee for the processing of any personal information access request, but no charge will be imposed for a correction request.]

    Dealing with other people

    We will deal with your spouse or partner if they call us on your behalf provided they are named on the policy and they satisfy our identification and verification checks. If you would like someone else to deal with your policy on your behalf on a regular basis please let us know. In some exceptional cases we may also deal with other people who call on your behalf and with your consent. If at any time you want us to deal only with you, please let us know.

    What is your online security?

    The protection of your personal information is a priority for us. We take all reasonable precautions to protect your personal information from loss, misuse and any unauthorised access, modification or disclosure.

    How can you be sure your personal information is secure?

    The information you provide to us via our website is securely encrypted as it travels between your computer and our computers. The secure connection is over a protocol called secure socket layer - SSL, making it difficult for others to access your information. Two ways of knowing when you are using a secured section of our website is to look for the small padlock symbol usually found in the address bar of your browser and secondly the web address in your browser window will start with "https" instead of "http"

    Your personal information is stored on our computer systems which are protected from unauthorised access by a combination of technologies (firewalls, secure logon processes, encryption and intrusion monitoring technologies).

    We use an industry recognised payment service provider to process any insurance payments you make using this website. The service provider is required to protect your personal information on our behalf.

    What happens when you make an online payment?

    When you make a payment on our website using your credit card, your credit card number is passed in a secure manner between our website and third party payment providers, such as the issuer of your credit card.

    Communicating with us via the internet

    Our website enables you to communicate with us electronically using the internet. We need your email address in order to respond to your communications with us.

    We WILL NOT ask you to provide or confirm personal information by email. An email which appears to come from us, or which claims to be sent by us - asking for personal information should not be opened. It should be deleted immediately as it's likely to be an attempt to acquire (wrongfully) your personal details (called 'phishing').

    Securing your personal computer

    Both you and us play an important role in protecting your information. There are three things you can do to secure your online experience:

    • Antivirus and Spyware Protection. Install a commercial quality antivirus/spyware protection software package with the latest updates on your computer.
    • Firewall. Make sure you have an active firewall. A firewall is a device that prevents unauthorised users from accessing or connecting to computers or networks.
    • PC Operating System. Keep your computer's operating system up to date with the latest updates.

    Always remember to log out from the Well Link Insurance session when you have completed your transactions. Do not leave your computer unattended while internet transactions are being processed.

    We strongly recommend that you clear your browser's cache after each internet session. Cache files on your computer can retain images of data sent or received over the internet, making you a potential target for a system hacker.

    You should safeguard your username and password. Never disclose your password to other persons. We will never ask you for your password. If you think your username and password has been stolen/has been compromised, please inform us immediately.

    For more information on securing your personal computer, please refer to the Information Security (InfoSec) website of the Government of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region.
