§ 1 General Provisions
a) The companies belonging to Merkur Insurance Group (Merkur Versicherung Aktiengesellschaft, Joanneumring 22, 8010 Graz) offer their customers a bonus programme through which customers can remain informed on different special offers with cooperation partners of the Merkur Insurance Group, thereby claiming benefits (e.g. price discounts and rebates) during the booking of products and/or services provided by cooperation partners. Participation in this bonus programme is handled free of charge via installation of the Merkur App.
d) "Merkur App" is a free additional offering for customers, and it serves to provide information to customers as well as giving them the opportunity, in the form of the bonus programme, to gain benefits in booking products and/or services offered by selected Merkur cooperation partners.
§ 2 Data Protection
a) Merkur's bonus programme is a data application operated by Merkur with the assistance of a service provider, Merkur Lifestyle (Merkur Lifestyle GmbH, Wielandgasse 2, 8010 Graz 100% subsidiary company of Merkur), with the purpose of enabling customers to inform themselves of and make use of all special offers and benefits offered by cooperation partners.
b) As a Merkur customer, you can view existing special offers and benefits after installing the Merkur App. In this data application, data are stored exclusively for the purpose of administration of the bonus programme. By entering the client number, we can connect your profile data submitted with a policy number, thereby ensuring the contractual relationship is upheld. In order to redeem a benefit offered, we therefore find and use all of your data required for the creation of your bonus programme membership and the processing and monitoring of your booking; these include personal data found in your app profile (names, email addresses).
c) These data are not used for other purposes (e.g. marketing) unless you provide separate consent to our Data Protection Agreement during the identification of your data.
d) Similarly, none of your data are forwarded to the corresponding cooperation partners during booking.
e) It is possible to request an information about your personal data processed in the application. In case your personal data are processed incorrectly, you may require their correction or deletion and you have right to contradict the processing of your personal data in justified individual cases. In addition, the right to data portability exists. In these cases, we request contact by e-mail at email@example.com or in writing to Merkur Versicherung AG, A-8010 Graz, Joanneumring 22. In addition, the right of appeal to the data protection authority is open and as of 25 Mai 2018 you may request the restriction the processing of your personal data until clarification of its accuracy and the transmission of the data to third parties. The personal data of a registered bonus program member stored in the system are required to fulfil the bonus program. If these are not provided, a booking within the bonus program cannot be carried out.
