Safety Nest Inc. (“SafetyWing”) respects individual privacy and values the confidence of its customers, employees, business associates, and others. This Privacy Policy informs you of the way your information is collected online, how that information is used, and how we protect this information.

When visiting our website, you are an anonymous visitor. SafetyWing Group only recognizes a visitor's IP address and does not collect any information without the visitor voluntarily providing such information. When requesting a quote, SafetyWing Group may ask for basic information about you (e.g. date of birth, citizenship, home country). Only after you have decided to complete an Application for Insurance do we ask for more detailed personal information (e.g. name, address).

SafetyWing Inc. uses the information collected in one or more of the following ways:

  • Process orders/applications and to make and fulfill requests for additional information
  • Provide customer service and/or support
  • Provide you with insurance documents
  • Communicate with you and/or your agent about your application or policy
  • Update you on new products, services, or benefits
  • Verify the identity of an insured or applicant
  • Aggregate site visitor analysis

SafetyWing Inc. will not give or sell your personal information to third parties outside of the company sphere except (i) when we are ordered to do so to comply with the law of the countries in which we do business or when complying with the legal process (ii) when we are sharing our information with the plan administrator Tokio Marine HCC - MIS Group (which is subjec to this privacy policy: http://www.hccmis.com/about-hccmis/privacy-policy/) , or (iii) if you explicitly consent to such sharing of information, e.g sharing information with your freelancer platform.

To ensure that online transactions and data are protected, SafetyWing uses advanced encryption technology through the use of 128-bit Secure Socket Layer. This technology allows SafetyWing to use advanced encryption tools to protect all information transmitted between the outside source and the internal server. SafetyWing restricts access of personal information to employees. Any employee that SafetyWing Inc. determines is in violation of this policy will be subject to disciplinary action, up to and including termination and criminal prosecution.

SafetyWing will use personal information only in ways that are compatible with the purposes for which it was collected and in accordance with this Policy. SafetyWing will take reasonable steps to ensure that personal information is relevant to its intended use, accurate, complete, and current. However, we depend on our policyholders, producers, and users to update their personal information when necessary.

Cookies are tiny files that are placed on your computer to uniquely identify your internet browser. SafetyWing only utilizes cookies to track session information after an insured or producer has logged into one of SafetyWing secure zones of our website. You can configure your browser to refuse all cookies or to indicate when a cookie is being sent. However, doing so will prevent access to these secure areas.

Upon request, SafetyWing will grant individuals reasonable access to personal information that it holds about them. In addition, SafetyWing will take reasonable steps to permit individuals to correct, amend, or delete information that is clearly demonstrated to be inaccurate or incomplete except where the burden or expense of providing access would be disproportionate to the risks to the individual's privacy in the case in question, or where the rights of persons other than the individual would be violated.

You have the right to opt out of or prevent the disclosure of non-public personal financial information to non-affiliated third parties, other than those permitted by law. This option applies to the services that SafetyWing provides to you. Presently, SafetyWing does not share or exchange such information. The insurance plan administrator will not disclose information to non-affiliated third parties, other than those permitted by law.

Questions or comments regarding this Privacy Policy should be submitted to the Compliance Department of SafetyWing by mail or e-mail as follows:

This Policy may be amended from time to time. A notice will be posted on SafetyWing for 60 days whenever this Privacy Policy is changed in a material way. Effective Date: March 7th 2018
