Purpose and legal basis of data processing

The Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG), the General Data Protection Regulation (DSGVO) and the relevant provisions of the Insurance Contracts Act (VVG), as well as other laws and ordinances serve YACHT-POOL as legal basis for data processing operations in which we obtain your consent for a certain processing purpose. For the use of our services, e.g. the conclusion and management of an insurance contract or the payment of benefits the processing of personal data is required by YACHT-POOL and affiliates (insurers and banks). Necessary personal data are salutation, surname and first name, year of birth, address and possibly further contact details. It may also require your bank details, insurance numbers, water sports licenses, and your vessel’s identification information. The provision of this data is contractually required and mandatory for contract conclusion and contract execution. Without the processing of your personal data neither conclusion nor execution of an insurance contract is possible.

YACHT-POOL is committed to the principle of data economy. This means that we only ask for the data that is absolutely necessary for the respective processing purpose. To generate statistics (for example, to develop new tariffs) or to comply with regulatory or contractual obligations, we anonymise personal information as early and as far as possible.

Categories of recipients of personal data

Insurers and reinsurers:

Risks we assume are insured with different insurance companies we work with. For this it may be necessary to transfer personal data such as contract data or damage data.


Insofar as you are supported by an agency with regard to your insurance with YACHT-POOL, this agency processes the data required for the conclusion and execution of the contract. Also for support – e.g. in the event of damage -and advice, YACHT-POOL may transmit personal data to the agency responsible for you.
