Preliminary section: Main amendments
As a trusted companion, the protection of your personal data is important to the BNP Paribas Group.
We have enhanced our Privacy Notice by being more transparent on the following information on:

Your personal data may therefore be shared between our intra-group distributors and us when:
• You wish to subscribe to a Cardif insurance contract and have taken steps with a BNP Paribas Group entity acting as a distributor of our products;
• You have taken out a Cardif insurance policy with a BNP Paribas Group entity;
• You are the beneficiary of a Cardif insurance policy distributed by a BNP Paribas Group entity.
Personal data shared between our intra-group distributors and us may be:
• data collected by a BNP Paribas Group entity at the time of subscription or during the execution of one of your Cardif insurance contracts; or

The processing that is carried out on the basis of your personal data held by us and our intra-group distributors is subject to a balancing of our legitimate interests against your interests or your fundamental rights and freedoms to ensure that there is a fair balance between them.
c. With recipients outside the BNP Paribas Group and processors
In order to fulfil some of the purposes described in this Privacy Notice, we may, where necessary, share your personal data with:
• subcontractors who perform services on our behalf, for example, IT services, printing, telecommunications, collection, consulting, distribution and marketing services;

o in order to comply with a regulation or recommendation issued by a competent authority with respect to us or any member of the BNP Paribas Group.

• certain regulated professions such as lawyers, notaries, or statutory auditors when specific circumstances so require (litigation, audit, etc.) as well as to our insurers or any current or potential purchaser of the companies or activities of the BNP Paribas Group;
• social security agencies when they are involved in claims or when we provide benefits in addition to social security benefits;
• commercial intelligence agencies;
• interested parties to the contract such as:
o the contract holder, the subscriber, the insured parties and their representatives;

o the persons responsible for the claim, the victims, their representatives and witnesses.
7. INTERNATIONAL TRANSFERS OF PERSONAL DATA
In case of international transfers originating from the European Economic Area (EEA) to a non-EEA country, the transfer of your personal data may take place. Where the European Commission has recognised a non-EEA country as providing an adequate level of data protection, your personal data may be transferred on this basis.
For transfers to non-EEA countries where the level of protection has not been recognized as adequate by the European Commission, we will either rely on a derogation applicable to the specific situation (e.g., if the transfer is necessary to perform our contract with you, such as when making an international payment) or implement one of the following safeguards to ensure the protection of your personal data:
• Standard contractual clauses approved by the European Commission;
To obtain a copy of these safeguards or details on where they are available, you can send a written request to :
BNP Paribas Cardif - DPO
8 rue du Port, 92728 Nanterre Cedex-France
8. HOW LONG DO WE KEEP YOUR PERSONAL DATA?
We retain your personal data for the period of time necessary to comply with the applicable laws and regulations, or for a period of time required for operational purposes, such as bookkeeping, effective customer relationship management, and to enforce our legal rights or respond to requests from regulatory bodies.
When a contract is entered into:
Most customer data is retained for the duration of the contractual relationship plus the statutory limitation period for claims under that contract (ranging from 2 years to 30 years for some contracts), unless overriding legal or regulatory provisions require a longer or shorter retention period.
If no contract is entered into:
Your data is kept for 3 years from the date of its collection or the last contact we had with you.
If we have collected data relating to your health, it is kept for a maximum period of 5 years if no contract has been concluded (the objective is to be able to respond to your requests or mainly to provide evidence in the event of a dispute over the decision not to conclude an insurance contract).
Other retention periods:
Your credit card information is kept for a period of 13 months from the date of debit (except for the CVC which is not kept in our system).
Telephone recordings for the purpose of improving the quality of services and training of our staff are kept for 6 months. The analysis documents resulting from these records are kept for 1 year.
The information relating to your identity and delivered at the time of a request to exercise your rights is preserved during the period necessary to respond to your request.
For more detailed information on the retention periods of your personal data, you can consult Appendix 2.
9. HOW TO FOLLOW THE EVOLUTION OF THIS PRIVACY NOTICE
In a world where technologies are constantly evolving, we regularly review this Privacy Notice and update it as required.
We invite you to review the latest version of this document online, and we will inform you of any significant amendments through our website or through our standard communication channels.
Processing of personal data for anti-money laundering and countering of the financing of terrorism
We are part of a banking Group that must adopt and maintain a robust anti-money laundering and countering the financing of terrorism (AML/CFT) programme for all its entities managed at central level, an anti-corruption program, as well as a mechanism to ensure compliance with international Sanctions (i.e., any economic or trade sanctions, including associated laws, regulations, restrictive measures, embargoes, and asset freezing measures that are enacted, administered, imposed, or enforced by the French Republic, the European Union, the U.S. Department of the Treasury’s Office of Foreign Assets Control, and any competent authority in territories where BNP Paribas Group is established).
In this context, we act as joint controllers together with BNP Paribas SA, the parent company of the BNP Paribas Group (the term “we” used in this appendix therefore also covers BNP Paribas SA).
To comply with AML/CFT obligations and with international Sanctions, we carry out the processing operations listed hereinafter to comply with our legal obligations:
• A Know Your Customer (KYC) program reasonably designed to identify, verify and update the identity of our customers, including where applicable, their respective beneficial owners and proxy holders;
• Enhanced due diligence for high-risk clients, Politically Exposed Persons or “PEPs” (PEPs are persons defined by the regulations who, due to their function or position (political, jurisdictional or administrative), are more exposed to these risks), and for situations of increased risk;
• Written policies, procedures and controls reasonably designed to ensure that the Bank does not establish or maintain relationships with shell banks;
• A policy, based on the internal assessment of risks and of the economic situation, to generally not process or otherwise engage, regardless of the currency, in activity or business:
o for, on behalf of, or for the benefit of any individual, entity or organisation subject to Sanctions by the French Republic, the European Union, the United States, the United Nations, or, in certain cases, other local sanctions in territories where the Group operates;
o involving directly or indirectly sanctioned territories, including Crimea/Sevastopol, Cuba, Iran, North Korea, or Syria;
o involving financial institutions or territories which could be connected to or controlled by terrorist organisations, recognised as such by the relevant authorities in France, the European Union, the U.S. or the United Nations.
• Customer database screening and transaction filtering reasonably designed to ensure compliance with applicable laws;
• Systems and processes designed to detect and report suspicious activity to the relevant regulatory authorities;
• A compliance program reasonably designed to prevent and detect bribery, corruption and unlawful influence pursuant to the French “Sapin II” Law, the U.S FCPA, and the UK Bribery Act.
In this context, we make use of:
o services provided by external providers that maintain updated lists of PEPs such as Dow Jones Factiva (provided by Dow Jones & Company, Inc.) and the World-Check service (provided by REFINITIV, REFINITIV US LLC and London Bank of Exchanges);
o public information available in the press on facts related to money laundering, the financing of terrorism or corruption;
o knowledge of a risky behaviour or situation (existence of a suspicious transaction report or equivalent) that can be identified at the BNP Paribas Group level.
We carry out these checks when you enter into a relationship with us, but also throughout the relationship we have with you, both on yourself and on the transactions you carry out. At the end of the relationship and if you have been the subject of an alert, this information will be stored in order to identify you and to adapt our controls if you enter into a new relationship with a BNP Paribas Group entity, or in the context of a transaction to which you are a party.
In order to comply with our legal obligations, we exchange information collected for AML/CFT, anti-corruption or international Sanctions purposes between BNP Paribas Group entities. When your data are exchanged with countries outside the European Economic Area that do not provide an adequate level of protection, the transfers are governed by the European Commission’s standard contractual clauses. When additional data are collected and exchanged in order to comply with the regulations of non-EU countries, this processing is necessary for our legitimate interest, which is to enable the BNP Paribas Group and its entities to comply with their legal obligations and to avoid local penalties.
The retention periods correspond to the time during which we may need to process the data collected.
In the absence of a contract
If you are a prospect, we keep your data for a period of 3 years from the date of collection or last contact from you.
At the end of this period, we may contact you again to ask if you still wish to receive commercial solicitations. If we do not receive a positive response, we will delete your data.
Health data is kept for a maximum of 5 years from the date of its collection or the last contact from you (2 years in the active database and 3 years in intermediate storage).
This period is justified insofar as we must be able to respond to your requests in the event of a dispute following a refusal or questioning of your responsibility, or in the event of requests for mediation.
Audience measurement statistics
Cookies have a maximum life span of 13 months and the information collected through them is kept for a maximum of 25 months.
When a contract is entered into
The shelf life takes into account two parameters:
- duration of the commitment;
- the limitation period (i.e. the period during which the beneficiary of the right can act to claim its benefit, the starting point of which varies according to the action).
Finally, in general, for accounting purposes, we must be able to present, for a period of 10 years, any document necessary to prove the payment and the amount of the payment.
1/ Legal or regulatory retention periods applicable to insurance companies
We take into account:
• the time limits for the retention of documents on which the tax authorities' rights of communication, investigation and control may be exercised: 6 years (in some cases 10 years) from the date of the last transaction mentioned in the books or registers or from the date on which the documents or vouchers were drawn up (article L.102 B of the Book of Tax Procedures);
• the time limits for keeping documents and information relating to the client and the operations carried out by them in the context of the fight against money laundering and the financing of terrorism: 5 years from the closing of their accounts or the termination of the relationship or from the execution of the transactions. (article L. 561-12 of the French Monetary and Financial Code).
• the time limits for the conservation of the written document which establishes the contracts concluded by electronic means and concerning an amount higher than €120: 10 years from the conclusion of the contract (L. 213-1 of the French Consumer Code).
2/ Retention periods and prescription rules specific to insurance contracts
We take into account, for each type of contract, the limitation periods provided for by the French Civil Code and the French Code of Criminal Procedure and the specific limitation periods provided for by the French Insurance Code.
