(3) Establish a regulatory mechanism to enable natural persons to ascertain what personal information is being or has been collected about them in connection with insurance transactions and to have access to this personal information for the purpose of verifying or disputing its accuracy;

(4) Limit the disclosure of personal information collected in connection with insurance transactions; and

(5) Enable insurance applicants and policyholders to obtain the reasons for any adverse underwriting decision. [1981 c.649 §2; 1987 c.490 §51; 2003 c.87 §7; 2003 c.364 §152]
