Recent technological progress offers insurers and their clients new opportunities to enter into risk and data-based insurance contracts: In motor insurance, for example, “pay-as-you-drive” tariffs are based on a constant flow of data relating to each policy holder’s driving style. The individual’s driving behaviour can be documented by a black box or even the insured’s smart phone. Similarly, “pay-as-you-live” tariffs in life and disability insurance are calculated on the basis of individual fitness and lifestyle habits. Again, mobile phones or wearable devices such as fitness-trackers may record different data sets, e.g. the number of steps the policy holder walks during the day. Finally, as “smart-home” devices are increasingly gaining importance in modern households, lifestyle and eating habits can also be monitored by a “smart” or “internet refrigerator”, which scans all in and outgoing products and may re-order food online if necessary. The aforementioned insurance tariffs are centred around tracking the behaviour of individual policy holders. This raises a multitude of questions for insurance law as well as data protection law. This paper examines the various legal aspects of data and risk-based insurance tariffs and pays particular attention to the danger associated with an unlimited combination of different sets of highly personalised data.
