At Allianz, we maintain important disaster recovery and business continuity plans
that may be used in the event of a significant business disruption. We realize the
critical nature of being able to continue material operations if an incident occurs
that could affect important business units and systems. These plans are key components
in maintaining emergency procedures, and are required by securities industry regulations.
Our business continuity plans provide for continuity of critical operations and
other activities during a variety of disruptions. They include conducting operations
from alternate sites in different locations, if necessary.
To maintain effective and secure plans, we keep them confidential and so do not
provide specific details in this notice. In addition, we are committed to maintaining
effective communications with you during a business disruption. Our business continuity
plans are reviewed to ensure appropriate enhancements are implemented as technology
improves, business plans evolve, or regulatory requirements change.
