If you have any questions regarding the privacy or security of your information, please contact us.

Personal information

We will ask you for personal information via our website to offer you a life insurance policy. We'll ask about your identity, health, and credit card or bank details. We will only use the information you provide to offer you a life insurance policy and to manage that policy.

We won't make your details available for any other purpose. Nor will your details be sold, rented or made available to any party not directly related to offering you a policy or managing that policy. Within Pinnacle Life, your details will only be accessible to authorized staff operating within strict guidelines. Besides our staff, we'll occasionally make information available to Financial Advice Providers to give you the advice you may need. You're entitled to access any information we hold about you. Just contact us.

Emails you send to us

Messages you send to our customer support team are private between you and Pinnacle Life. However, please don't include banking details in any email as emails can be intercepted.

Your security answer

When you buy a policy, we ask you to choose a security question. This enables us to verify your identity should you contact us later. You're responsible for protecting your answer. Choose a question and answer that others won't know, and don't disclose this information to third parties. You'll be responsible for how these third parties use your password if you do.

Marketing feedback and offers

We will communicate with you about our products, update you about anything new, and get your feedback from time to time. If you don't want us to contact you in this regard, just drop us an email at ask@pinnaclelife.co.nz or use the unsubscribe button if one is available.

Occasionally we'll use aggregated data for marketing purposes. We'll ensure that any data we use or provide to third parties is first encrypted to protect your identity.
