Insurance coverage for data loss

Your data recovery on defective computer media may be covered by your insurance.

Insurance in case of loss of your data

Most insurance companies now offer coverage for data recovery costs through new insurance policies/modules, whether for legal entities or individuals. This development in the insurance field allows policyholders to benefit from protection in case of data loss on computer systems. However, it is important to note that this coverage often depends on certain criteria, particularly the requirement that the data recovery company is based in Switzerland.

Depending on the coverage provided by your insurance, whether it's home insurance or property insurance, it is possible that a portion or even the entire cost of data recovery may be covered by your insurance. Therefore, it is recommended to carefully review the terms of your insurance contract to understand the specific details of this coverage. We are happy to assist you in these steps.

In the specific case of your liability insurance (RC), it is possible for it to cover the costs if you are responsible for the loss of data that could cause harm to others. For example, if you hold a financial position within a football club, the loss of data related to that club could have damaging consequences for the parties involved. In such a situation, your liability insurance could indemnify you by reimbursing the costs of data recovery incurred.

It is important to understand that each insurance company has its own conditions and criteria for covering data recovery costs. Therefore, we are happy to assist you in the administrative process to provide your insurer with all the necessary information for their decision-making.
