To combat insurance fraud and to determine and properly evaluate risks, the South African Insurance Association (SAIA) has created a shared database for storing insurance information of policyholders.

We will store your information in the shared database to verify any underwriting information against legally recognised sources or databases.

Fighting insurance fraud will benefit you, because fraud has an enormous effect on the short-term insurance industry. It affects the evaluation and determination of risks by insurers, and it affects you directly as it leads to higher premiums.

We are serious about combating fraud and the fair evaluation of risks, because we want to keep your premium as fair and competitive as possible.

Your right to privacy is a fundamental right that is included in The Constitution of the Republic of South Africa, 1996. This right is, however, restricted in certain circumstances. These circumstances include cases where the parties disclosing information and the parties who are privy to it have a legal interest in that information. This means that in terms of South African law, we may disclose and/or receive information if we intend using it to prevent fraud and to underwrite risks fairly.

14.3.             Your authorisation to us

You acknowledge that the sharing of information for underwriting and claims purposes is in the public interest, as it will enable insurers to underwrite policies and assess risks fairly, and to reduce the incidence of fraudulent claims. This will contribute to keeping premiums as low as possible.

On your behalf and on behalf of any person who you represent, you waive Your rights to privacy for any underwriting and Claims information for any insurance policy or claim made by you or on your behalf.

You consent to such information being stored in the shared database and used as set out above.

You consent to such information being given to any insurer or its agent.

You consent to any underwriting information being verified against and shared with legally recognised sources or databases.
