Collection and Processing of Personal Data in Insurance: New Practices & Challenges

Dr Aysegul Bugra, Koç University, Istanbul, Turkey

This presentation will seek to give an overview of the instruments limiting the insurers’ right of access and use of personal data for the assessment of the risk, including the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR); Council of Europe (CoE) Recommendation on the Processing of Health-Related Data for Insurance Purposes; relevant codes of practice and soft law materials. The potential implications of the insurance contract law on the access and processing of data by underwriters will also be considered, together with the position under New Zealand law.
