This employee data privacy notice ("Notice") sets out the types of information that We collect about you, the purposes for which it is collected, the basis on which We process it, and how We handle your personal data. It is intended to comply with our obligations to provide you with information about Chubb's processing of your personal data under applicable privacy laws.

Chubb or the relevant associated company of Chubb identified in your employment contract or contract for services (whether issued by Chubb or a third party) will be the data controller of your personal data. In addition, where the processing of personal data is undertaken by other associated companies of Chubb for their own independent purposes, these associated companies may also be controllers of your personal data.

This Notice principally applies to current employees even after the end of their employment but, where relevant, it also applies to workers, job applicants, interns, agency workers, consultants directors, and third parties whose information is provided to us in connection with the employment or work relationship (for example, referees or emergency contact information). Where we use the term employee or employment then for the purpose of this notice that includes those who work for us on a basis other than employment to the extent it is relevant but this does not in any way indicate that the individual is an employee of Chubb.

This Notice does not form part of any contract of employment and does not confer any contractual right on you, or place any contractual obligation on us. We may update or otherwise amend this Notice at any time and we always notify you about such changes in due course. 

This Notice applies to Hungary and any reference in this Notice to “applicable laws” is a reference to the domestic laws that apply in Hungary, including local data protection laws and the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation.

If you are aware of unauthorized disclosure of data, please also refer this to us for guidance as to the applicable reporting requirements.

Types of personal Data that Chubb processes 

Personal data is any information that relates to an identified or identifiable living natural person. An identifiable natural person is an individual who can be identified, directly or indirectly, by reference to an identifier such as a name, an identification number, location data, an online identifier or to one or more factors specific to the physical, physiological, genetic, mental, economic, cultural or social identity of that individual. Personal data includes, for example, your contact details and your date of birth.

Chubb processes your personal data. In this context, “processing” means dealing with the data in any way, such as using, storing, disclosing or destroying it.

The types of personal data which we process will vary depending on your role, your location and any terms and conditions of employment or engagement relevant to you. Typically the types of personal data will include, for example, your personal and basic work details and details of your remuneration and benefits.

The types of personal data which we process will include, but may not be limited to, the following:

  • Your personal details - such as date of birth, gender, contact details, emergency contact/next of kin details, immigration and eligibility to work data and languages spoken;
  • Basic work details - for example your work contact details (corporate email address and telephone numbers), employee number, photograph, job title, job description, assigned business unit or group, reporting lines, primary work location, working hours and your terms and conditions of employment;
  • Professional qualification and regulatory Data - where applicable, including certifications and unique regulatory identifiers;
  • Recruitment/Selection Data - for example, any personal data contained in your CV, application form, record of interview or interview notes, records of assessments and vetting and verification documentation;
  • Criminal Records Data - if permitted under local law in relation to recruitment for specific roles;
  • Leave Data - for example, your holiday and family-related leave records;
  • Remuneration and Benefits Data - for example, details of your pay and benefits package, bank account details, grade, social security number, tax information and third party benefit recipient information;
  • Incapacity Data - for example, any personal data contained in your absence records, medical forms, reports or certificates and records relating to accommodations or adjustments;
  • Disciplinary and Grievance Data - for example, any personal data contained in records of allegations, investigations and meeting records and outcomes;
  • Performance Management Data - for example, colleague and manager feedback, appraisals, outputs from talent programmes and formal and informal performance management processes;
  • Training and Development Data - data relating to training and development needs or training received;
  • Monitoring Data - if permitted under local law, identifiable images contained in CCTV footage, system and building login and access records, keystroke, download and print records, call recordings, data caught by IT security programmes and filters;
  • Equality and Diversity Data - if permitted under local law, data regarding gender, age, race, nationality, religious belief and sexuality (stored anonymously for equal opportunities monitoring purposes);
  • Health and Safety Data - personal data in audits, risk assessments and incident reports;
  • Employee Claims, Complaints and Disclosures Data - personal data in the subject matter of employment based litigation and complaints, employee involvement in incident reporting and disclosures;
  • Termination Data - for example, dates and reason for leaving, termination arrangements and payments, exit interviews and references;
  • Any other personal data which you choose to disclose to Chubb personnel during the course of your employment, whether verbally or in written form (for example, on work emails). 

Special categories of personal data 

To the extent permitted by applicable laws, Chubb may also collect and process a limited amount of personal data falling into special categories. Within this category, Chubb collects and records information relating to health (including physical or mental condition), religious or philosophical belief, disability data and criminal convictions and offences as permitted by applicable laws.

Sources of personal data 

Primarily the personal data we process about you will have been provided by you, either during your application for employment or engagement, the onboarding process or on an ad hoc basis during the course of your employment or engagement. This will especially include your personal and basic work details as well as equality and diversity data.

During the recruitment process, we may request references from third parties, but only if you're informed consent to this prior to contacting the third party.

We also receive information that may include your personal data from your line manager (for example, in respect of performance reviews) or, from time to time, from other managers or colleagues (for instance, in the course of conducting an investigation). 

We may also receive personal data about you from other third parties, for example, clients, tax authorities, benefit providers, brokers, and regulatory bodies to the extent permitted by applicable laws.

In some circumstances, data may be collected indirectly from monitoring devices or by other means (for example, building and location access control and monitoring systems, telephone logs and recordings, and email and Internet access logs), if and to the extent permitted by applicable laws.  In these circumstances, the data may be collected by Chubb or a third party provider of the relevant service.  This type of data is generally not accessed on a routine basis but access is possible.  Access may occur, for instance, in situations where Chubb is investigating possible violations of Chubb policies such as those relating to travel and expense reimbursement, use of the Internet or employees conduct generally, or where the data are needed for compliance purposes. More frequent access to such data may occur incidental to an email surveillance program, if and to the extent permitted by applicable laws. Chubb will not use any such collected data for any purpose other than explicitly stated in this Notice.

Where we ask you to provide personal data to us on a mandatory basis, we will inform you of this at the time of collection and in the event that particular information is required by the contract or statute this will be indicated. Failure to provide any mandatory information will mean that we cannot carry out certain HR processes.  For example, if you do not provide us with your bank details, we will not be able to pay you.  In some cases, it may mean that we are unable to continue with your employment or engagement as Chubb will not have the personal data we believe to be necessary for the effective and efficient administration and management of our relationship with you.

Apart from personal data relating to yourself, you may also provide Chubb with personal data of other third parties, notably your referees, dependents and other family members or friends, for purposes of HR administration and management, including employment verification, the administration of benefits and to contact your next of kin in an emergency.  Before you provide such third party personal data to Chubb you must first inform these third parties of any such data which you intend to provide to Chubb and of the processing to be carried out by Chubb, as detailed in this Notice.

Please contact us if you have any questions regarding the source of your personal data or would like more detail than is set out in this Notice.

Retention of personal data 

We only retain employee personal data for as long as is required to satisfy the purpose for which it was collected by us or provided by you. We therefore will retain your personal data as a minimum for the duration of your employment with us.

In certain cases, legal or regulatory obligations (for example in the case of tax-related matters) require us to retain specific records for a set period of time, including following the end of your employment. In the case of tax-related matters, we are for example obliged to keep data concerning your remuneration for eight years.

For more information about Chubb's data retention practices, including in respect of employee records and applicants’ records, please refer to the Chubb Records Management Policy

Disclosures of personal data 

Internally your direct and indirect line managers, HR professionals supporting your work area, and in some cases certain colleagues will have access to some of your personal data where relevant to their role. 

We routinely share your personal data with other members of the Chubb group where required in order to, for example, run global processes, carry out group-wide reporting, or assist with workforce planning.

Certain basic personal data, such as your name, location, job title, contact information, and any published skills and experience profile may also be accessible to other staff.

We may also be required to disclose your personal data to third parties. This will include suppliers which help us provide HR services, tax or other authorities, a regulator, or a professional adviser.

Examples of third parties with whom your data may be shared include tax authorities, medical/occupational health professionals, regulatory authorities, law enforcement and regulatory bodies, Chubb's insurers, bankers, IT administrators, lawyers, accountants, data center providers, doctors, or other healthcare providers, auditors, notaries, investors, lenders, training providers, landlords, office access providers, social media and marketing suppliers, consultants and other professional advisors, payroll/tax providers, and administrators of Chubb's benefits programs. Your personal data is also accessed by third parties whom we work together within connection with IT services, such as hosting, supporting, and maintaining the framework of our information systems.

Chubb expects such third parties to process any data disclosed to them in accordance with applicable law, including with respect to data confidentiality and security. Where these third parties act as a "data processor" (for example, a payroll provider), they carry out their tasks on our behalf and upon our instructions for the above-mentioned purposes. In this case, your personal data will only be disclosed to these parties to the extent necessary to provide the required services.

We may also share limited information with clients where you are part of a client team or proposed team in a tender process.

We use a number of third-party suppliers to help us provide HR services. These third parties may have access to or merely host your personal data, but will always do so under our instruction and subject to a contractual relationship.

Some third parties to whom we may provide personal data, for instance, private health insurance or occupational health providers or professional advisers or regulators, are data controllers in their own right, and you should refer to their own privacy notices and policies in respect of how they use your personal data. 

We may also be required to disclose your personal data to third parties in response to orders or requests from a court, regulators, government agencies, parties to a legal proceeding or public authorities, or to comply with regulatory requirements or as part of a dialogue with a regulator.

Your personal data may also be disclosed to advisors, potential transaction partners, or interested third parties in connection with the consideration, negotiation, or completion of a corporate transaction or restructuring of the business or assets of any part of the Chubb group.

Please contact us if you have any questions regarding recipients of your personal data or would like more detail than is set out in this Notice. 

Cross-border Transfers 

The global nature of our business means that your personal data may be disclosed to members of the Chubb group outside of the EEA, particularly in the USA. Certain suppliers and service providers may also have personnel or systems located outside of the EEA. As a result, your personal data may be transferred to countries outside of the country in which you work to countries whose data protection laws may be less stringent than yours.

In this context, your personal data may be transferred outside the European Economic Area (EEA) for the purposes set forth in this Notice, to countries that may not offer a level of protection of personal data equivalent to that offered within the EEA.

The Chubb group has an intra-group data transfer agreement in place which regulates cross-border transfers of your personal data within the group. Where third parties transfer your personal data outside of the EEA, we will take steps to ensure that your personal data receives an adequate level of protection, including by, for example, entering into data transfer agreements or by ensuring that third parties are certified under appropriate data protection schemes.

You have a right to request a copy of any data transfer agreement under which your personal data is transferred, or to otherwise have access to the safeguards used by contacting us. Any data transfer agreement made available to you may be redacted for reasons of commercial sensitivity.  

Data Subject Rights 

Right to access, correct and delete your personal data

Chubb aims to ensure that all personal data we store are correct. You also have a responsibility to ensure that changes in personal circumstances (for example, change of address and bank accounts) are notified to Chubb so that we can ensure that your data is up-to-date.

You have the right to request access to any of your personal data that Chubb may hold, and ask us to:

You have the right to request us to rectify any inaccurate personal data relating to you.

You furthermore have the right to request erasure of any irrelevant personal data we hold about you, but only where:

  • It is no longer needed for the purposes for which it was collected or otherwise processed; or  
  • You have withdrawn your consent (where the data processing was based on consent) and there is no other legal ground for the processing; or  
  • Following a successful right to object; or  
  • It has been processed unlawfully; or  
  • To comply with a legal obligation to which we are subject.  

We are not required to comply with your request to erase your personal data if the processing of your personal data is necessary:

  • For compliance with a legal obligation; or  
  • For the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims.

There are other certain circumstances in which we are not required to comply with your erasure request, although these two are the most likely circumstances in which we would deny that request.  

Additional rights

You also have the following additional rights:

Data portability - where we are relying upon your consent or the fact that the processing is necessary for the performance of a contract to which you are party as the legal basis for processing, and that personal data is processed by automatic means, you have the right to receive all such personal data which you have provided to Chubb in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format, and also to require us to transmit it to another controller where this is technically feasible.

Right to restriction of processing - you have the right to restrict our processing of your personal data where:

  • you contest the accuracy of the personal data until we have taken sufficient steps to correct or verify its accuracy;
  • where the processing is unlawful but you do not want us to erase the data;
  • where we no longer need the personal data for the purposes of the processing, but you require them for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims; or
  • where you have objected to processing justified on legitimate interest grounds (see below) pending verification as to whether Chubb has compelling legitimate grounds to continue processing.

Where personal data is subjected to restriction in this way we will only process it with your consent or for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims.

Right to withdraw consent - where you have provided us with your consent to process data, you have the right to withdraw such consent at any time, without affecting the lawfulness of processing based on consent before its withdrawal. You can do this in some cases by deleting the relevant data from the relevant HR system (although note that in this case, it may remain in back-ups and linked systems until it is deleted in accordance with our data retention policy). 

Right to object to processing justified on legitimate interest grounds - where we are relying upon legitimate interests to process data, then you have the right to object to that processing.  If you object, we must stop that processing unless we can either demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for the processing that override your interests, rights and freedoms or where we need to process the data for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims.  Where we rely upon legitimate interest as a basis for processing we believe that we can demonstrate such compelling legitimate grounds, but we will consider each case on an individual basis. 

You also have the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority, in particular in your country of residence, if you consider that the processing of your personal data infringes applicable law. In Hungary, the supervisory authority is called Nemzeti Adatvédelmi és Információszabadság Hatóság. You may reach the authority at 1125 Budapest, Szilágyi Erzsébet fasor 22/c, or you may contact them via e-mail on ugyfelszolgalat@naih.hu or call them on +36 (1) 391-1400. Should you wish to visit their website, please see https://www.naih.hu.

If you wish to investigate the exercising of any of these rights, please contact your Data Protection Officer.
