Some of those measures include, but may not be limited to, encryption, firewalls and use of Secure Socket Layers (SSL).
We shall provide you with access to your Personal Information in accordance with your legal entitlements so you can instruct us to correct or update the Personal Information if it is inaccurate, or delete your Personal Information if we are not required to retain it by law, for legal purposes, including claims management, or for a legitimate business purpose.
