In some cases, the safe of travel insurer Allianz Global Assistance, which was stolen in September, also had citizen service numbers (BSNs) and medical data, a spokesperson told NU.nl on Wednesday. Customers were informed about this earlier this week. It is unclear exactly how many customers were affected.

In September it was announced that a vault containing back-ups had been stolen. It contained tapes on which policies or roadside assistance and travel insurance policies were stored. The tapes cannot be read without special equipment that, according to Allianz, was not present in the safe.

It was previously known that the tires had names, addresses, places of residence and in some cases bank account numbers or license plates of the Allianz customers. Earlier this month, the travel insurer also informed customers of whom medical data or citizen service numbers may have been stored on the tires.

Customers have been informed in groups in recent months, the spokesperson said. "If breakdown assistance involved an injury, the correspondence about it was also stored. This may include the medical details or social security numbers."

No indications for misuse of data

Allianz has no indications that the personal data have been misused. Nevertheless, the insurer warned earlier that customers should be vigilant for possible fraud.

Exactly how many customers were affected is unclear. In October, Allianz estimated the number of affected customers at a maximum of 2.3 million. It must become clear in the course of December how large the group is.
