OOM Verzekeringen respects your privacy. We treat your personal information confidentially and with the utmost care.

  • For marketing ends;

  • we do not keep your personal data longer than necessary;

Processing special details

Before issuing health insurance, we usually ask for information on your medical situation. This may also be the case when we process a claim, for your healthcare or third party insurance, for instance. If we need details from your doctor, we will always ask you for authorisation first. We will then state which details we need and why we need this information.

The medical advisor assesses the medical situation at the time the application is made, or when a claim is processed. The medical advisor is bound by a duty of confidentiality.

For certain insurance contracts we may ask if you have a criminal record. We only ask for criminal details for the 8 years prior to the insurance application. 

Exchange of information

IIn accordance with our responsible acceptance, risk and fraud policies, we register details with or request details from the Dutch Central Information System (CIS). The CIS Foundation administers details for insurance companies working in the Netherlands. These details are used to reduce risks and fight fraud.

OOM Verzekeringen only makes your personal data available to a third party if it is necessary for drawing up an insurance contract, for a legal obligation or if it is necessary to ensure your and our rights are protected.
