We recognize the sensitive nature of your information. It is our priority to ensure the confidentiality of any information you provide and take a proactive approach to protecting your privacy. When using our services you may provide us with PII including but not limited to names, addresses, phone numbers, birth dates, spousal and family information, educational history, employment information, medical information, financial information and Social Security/National Insurance Numbers.
When you interact with ARM, we may receive and store information collected actively and passively through various technologies used on our Sites. This information may be used for purposes not limited to the performance of our business or to provide us with statistical information such as the number of visitors to a Site, the number of visitors to each page of our services, or to assist us in adjusting a claim.
The security of your information is important to us. We follow generally accepted standards such as SSL/TLS encryption to protect the personal information submitted to us. We may provide your information to third-party service providers that help us with our business activities such as adjusting insurance claims, shipping, marketing and financial activities. These companies are authorized to use your personal information only as necessary to provide these services to us. We may disclose your PII if required to do so by law or in the good faith belief that such action is necessary to: 1) comply with a legal obligation such as to comply with a subpoena or similar legal process, 2) protect and defend the rights or property of the Seventh-day Adventist Church, 3) act in urgent circumstances to protect the personal safety of users of the services and visitors to our Site, centers, or the public, 4) protect against legal liability, and/or 5) if the organization is involved in a merger, acquisition or safe of all or a portion of the assets. You will be notified with a notice on our Site of any change in ownership or uses of your information as well as any choices you may have.
This Site may contain links to other sites or features that may connect you with other mobile sites or applications. Privacy practices of linked sites and mobile applications may differ from ours. If you submit any personal information on these sites or applications, your information is governed by their privacy practices. We strongly suggest that you review the privacy policies of such sites before submitting any personal information.
If your PII changes, you no longer desire our service, or wish to know whether we hold PII about you, you may request to view, correct, update, amend, and delete such information by contacting us using the email address and/or address provided below. In your request, include your name, address, the name of the service you wish to update, and the nature of your request. We will make diligent efforts to respond to your inquiry within 30 days, so long as it is permissible by law to fulfil your request.
We will retain your information for as long as your account or claim is active or as long as it is reasonably useful for other organizational purposes. We will retain and use your information as necessary to comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes, enforce our agreements, and perform business activities. In particular, and if no such contradicting statutory or regulatory obligation exists, ARM will delete your PII once you inform ARM that you do not want us to further process your PII. Please direct any such request to our data protection officer at DPO@AdventistRisk.org. Please note that in this case the use of certain services or offerings may either be limited or no longer possible. In case there is a contradicting statutory or regulatory obligation for ARM to retain your PII, we will block it against further processing and then delete the relevant PII when the requirement to retain it has ceased.
How can you access or correct your personal information, request that it be deleted, or ask for it to be transferred to another organization?
At any time, you can request access to your personal information, request that any inaccuracies be corrected, and request that comments or explanations be added to records about you.
You can also ask about:
- whether and why we have your personal information;
- how we got your personal information;
- what we have done with your personal information;

We may refer any of these requests to our client (if joint data controller) if your personal information was collected on behalf of that client.
Depending on which laws apply to your personal information, we or our client (if joint data controller) may only be able to do some of these things for you. If you request one of these things and we refuse to do it, we will explain your legal rights, the reason for our refusal and any recourse you may have.
