Need more information about managing your business risks?

Revised: 12/02/2022


CNA and its affiliates (“CNA”, “we”, “our,” or “us”) value your privacy. CNA’s Privacy Policy (“Policy”) applies to information CNA has collected from or about you or you have provided to others on our behalf, to allow us to provide products or services to you (such products and services are referred to as “CNA Services” in this Policy). This Policy explains how and why CNA collects, uses, and discloses your Personal Information for our business purposes, consistent with applicable laws. Certain of our products and services are subject to additional privacy requirements set forth in other supplemental policies. If there is a conflict between this Policy and a supplemental policy, the supplemental policy will apply. This Policy applies to CNA operations in the United States, with certain state-specific privacy requirements applicable to “consumers” as that term is defined under the relevant state law. If you are looking for additional information related to CNA’s affiliates located outside of the United States, please refer to our jurisdiction section located on CNA Privacy Center’s welcome page.
