Data Privacy Policy - Korea

Last updated June 2020

Where Milliman is Acting as a Data Controller

Milliman, Inc. and its affiliates (“Milliman” or “we”) take data privacy very seriously. This Privacy Policy sets out the principles governing the Korean affiliate’s (Milliman Korea) use and protection of personal data that individuals and clients residing within South Korea share with us (“Personal Data”), hereafter “you”. Milliman is committed to handling Personal Data in accordance with this Privacy Policy, the Korean Personal Information Protection Act (KPIPA), and other data protection and privacy laws, as applicable.

Milliman, Inc. and Milliman Korea are joint-controllers with respect to the processing of Personal Data described in this Privacy Policy. This means that Milliman, Inc. and Milliman Korea are both responsible for the compliance with applicable data protection laws.

Collection of Data

Aggregate Data

Like many companies, Milliman monitors the use of its websites by collecting aggregate data. No Personal Data is collected in this process. Typically, Milliman collects data about the number of visitors to the website, to each web page, and the originating domain name of the visitor's Internet Service Provider. This data is used to improve the usability, performance and effectiveness of Milliman’s website.

Cookies, Third-Party Embedded Content and Do Not Track

For more detailed information describing how Milliman uses cookies and your choices surrounding the use and opt out of such cookies, including information about third party embedded content on Milliman’s website and how Milliman responds to Do Not Track signals in browsers please review our Cookie Policy which can be found here.

Processing of Personal Data

The Personal Data we collect varies depending upon the nature of the services provided and our interactions with individuals. In the context of the collection of data through this website, Milliman’s marketing activities and contract administration, we may collect, store and otherwise process Personal Data of:

- visitors to our websites (first name, last name, title, company, phone number, location, email address, subject of the request and message given) who request information about products or services from Milliman, for the purpose of the management of the relationship with clients and the administration of the website. The legal basis for the processing of Personal Data is Milliman’s legitimate interest (Art. 15(1)(vi) of KPIPA).

- clients’ representatives, officers, agents and employees, business partners, providers, parties to a contract (name, professional address, title, email and other professional contact details) for contract administration purposes. The professional contact details of clients’ representatives, their employees and business partners are also used to activate and maintain client accounts, to fulfill requests or respond to inquiries about Milliman products or services and to provide offers and information (as permitted by law) about products, services, or events offered by Milliman or that Milliman thinks may be of interest. The legal basis for the processing of Personal Data is Milliman’s legitimate interest (Art. 15(1)(vi) of KPIPA). Milliman may rely on your consent (Art. 15(1)(i) of KPIPA) for the sending of marketing communications when so required by data protection and privacy laws, in which case we will ask your consent prior to the sending of the communication. Milliman Korea may also use professional contact details of its clients’ employees for the purpose of sending surveys, questionnaires or for the purpose of organizing contests. For those activities, the legal basis for the processing of Personal Data is Milliman Korea’s legitimate interest (Art. 15(1)(vi) of KPIPA), unless data protection and privacy laws require your prior consent. We may also collect and process limited Personal Data about you from public resources (such as LinkedIn) including your name/surname, email address, telephone number, organization, title/position, profession, professional interests, to allow us to assess a potential interest in our services and to contact you for marketing purposes.

When we communicate with you regarding the products and services we offer or develop, you will be given the opportunity in each communication to unsubscribe and prevent future communications of that sort. If you do not want us to collect this information from our marketing emails, or if you wish to unsubscribe from direct marketing communications from us, you may write to us at [email protected] requesting the same. We will cease using your Personal Data for direct marketing purposes once you have requested us to do so.

If you provide us with Personal Data of another individual, it is your duty to make sure that these individuals have consented to or are appropriately informed about the processing of their Personal Data by Milliman.

No automated decision-making, including profiling, is undertaken based on the Personal Data collected from you.

Affiliates and Authorized Third-Party Agents

All Milliman websites, products, and services are provided in cooperation with Milliman, Inc., located in the U.S. Any Personal Data may be shared between Milliman Korea and Milliman, Inc. or other entities controlled by or under common control with Milliman, Inc., for purposes of centralization of Milliman’s administrative, contract management, Client Relationship Management (CRM), IT maintenance, marketing and IT security practices, for the purpose of the website’s management and security, and to provide information about Milliman products, services, or events. We may also share Personal Data with affiliated entities using the MILLIMAN® mark, in which case we will require those affiliates to comply with this Privacy Policy. Please note that we may be transferring your Personal Data to a country that does not have the same data protection laws as your home country. However, Milliman ensures that it and its affiliates will process Personal Data in compliance with this Privacy Policy.

Milliman also may share Personal Data with authorized third-party agents or contractors that perform services for Milliman. If Milliman shares Personal Data with a third party, Milliman requires that those third parties agree to process Personal Data based on Milliman’s instructions and in compliance with this Privacy Policy.

Any transfers of Personal Data are subject to appropriate safeguards that are compliant with the KPIPA. Those can be made available at Milliman’s premises, by contacting us at [email protected].

Other Disclosures

Milliman may also disclose Personal Data and other related information in response to subpoenas, court orders, or other lawful requests by public authorities, and to meet national security or law enforcement requirements. Milliman may collect and share Personal Data in order to investigate or take action regarding illegal activities, suspected fraud, violations of Milliman's Terms of Use, or as otherwise required by law or regulation.


Milliman stores Personal Data on a secure server that is password protected and shielded from unauthorized access by a firewall. Milliman has in place security policies that are intended to ensure the security and integrity of all Personal Data. Milliman has appropriate technical and organisational measures in place to protect against unauthorised or unlawful processing of Personal Data and against accidental loss or destruction of, or damage to, Personal Data held or processed by Milliman. If Milliman forwards Personal Data to any third party, Milliman requires that those third parties have appropriate technical and organisational measures in place to comply with this Privacy Policy and applicable laws.

Data Retention

Milliman retains Personal Data only as long as necessary to fulfill the purposes outlined in this Privacy Policy, unless a longer retention period is required or not prohibited by law. Milliman will delete your Personal Data once the purpose of the collection and processing of such Personal Data has been fulfilled and the adequate duration for documentation and backup storage of such Personal Data has lapsed. If you have unsubscribed from receiving marketing information from us, we will continue to maintain your Personal Data for any other purpose for which we still have legal grounds for processing such Personal Data (such as for the purposes of complying with a legal obligation or when the processing is necessary for the purpose of our legitimate interest). In certain cases, if no other legal grounds exist, we will maintain limited Personal Data (such as your email address) about you on record, so as to be able to ensure for the future that such marketing communications are no longer sent to you.


Milliman’s websites, products, and services are not directed to children, and Milliman does not knowingly collect Personal Data from children. If a parent or legal guardian becomes aware that his or her child has provided Milliman with Personal Data without their consent, the parent or legal guardian should contact Milliman at [email protected], and Milliman will take steps to delete any such Personal Data.

Third-party Links

Milliman’s website may contain links to websites hosted and operated by companies other than us (“Third-Party Websites”) to which you can export (part of) your Personal Data.

We do not disclose your Personal Data to these Third-Party Websites without your explicit consent. Note that any information you disclose to Third-Party Websites is no longer under our control and no longer subject to this Data Privacy Policy.

You should review the privacy policy practices of any such Third-Party Website to understand how that Third-Party Website collects and uses your Personal Data should you have decided to disclose your Personal Information to them. We are not responsible for the content or performance of these Third-Party Websites. We are in no way responsible or liable for the manner in which a Third-Party Website treats any Personal Data that you choose to provide to such a Third-Party Website and use of Third-Party Websites is strictly at your own risk.

Policy Updates

Milliman may change its Privacy Policy from time to time. Milliman therefore asks all persons concerned to check it occasionally to ensure that they are aware of the most recent version.
