Overview of consumers’ rights under GDPR

Insurance Europe has today published an overview of insurance consumers’ main rights under the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), which applied from 25 May 2018. 

The GDPR grants consumers more control over their data, by both reinforcing their existing rights and introducing new ones.

For instance, consumers have the right to transmit their data to another company in a commonly used and machine-readable format, and have the right to know whether their insurer processes their personal data and for which purposes.

The full overview is available here.
