TITLE 41
INSURANCE
CHAPTER 64
CORPORATE GOVERNANCE ANNUAL DISCLOSURE
41-6405.  CONFIDENTIALITY.  (1) Documents, materials or other information, including the CGAD, in the possession or control of the department of insurance that are obtained by, created by or disclosed to the director or any other person under this chapter are recognized by this state as being proprietary and to contain trade secrets. All such documents, materials or other information shall be confidential by law and privileged, shall not be subject to disclosure pursuant to the provisions of chapter 1, title 74, Idaho Code, shall not be subject to subpoena and shall not be subject to discovery or admissible in evidence in any private civil action. However, the director is authorized to use the documents, materials or other information in the furtherance of any regulatory or legal action brought as a part of the director’s official duties. The director shall not otherwise make the documents, materials or other information public without the prior written consent of the insurer. Nothing in this section shall be construed to require written consent of the insurer before the director may share or receive confidential documents, materials or other CGAD-related information pursuant to subsection (3) of this section to assist in the performance of the director’s duties.
(2)  Neither the director nor any person who received documents, materials or other CGAD-related information, through examination or otherwise, while acting under the authority of the director, or with whom such documents, materials or other information are shared pursuant to this chapter, shall be permitted or required to testify in any private civil action concerning any confidential documents, materials or information subject to subsection (1) of this section.
(3)  In order to assist in the performance of the director’s regulatory duties, the director may:
(a)  Upon request, share documents, materials, or other CGAD-related information including the confidential and privileged documents, materials, or information subject to subsection (1) of this section, including proprietary and trade secret documents and materials with other state, federal, and international financial regulatory agencies, including members of any supervisory college as discussed in section 41-3815, Idaho Code, with the NAIC, and with third-party consultants pursuant to section 41-6406, Idaho Code, provided that the recipient agrees in writing to maintain the confidentiality and privileged status of the CGAD-related documents, materials, or other information and has verified in writing the legal authority to maintain confidentiality.
(b)  Receive documents, materials, or other CGAD-related information, including otherwise confidential and privileged documents, materials or information, including proprietary and trade secret information or documents, from regulatory officials of other state, federal, and international financial regulatory agencies, including members of any supervisory college as discussed in section 41-3815, Idaho Code, and from the NAIC, and shall maintain as confidential or privileged any documents, materials, or information received with notice or the understanding that it is confidential or privileged under the laws of the jurisdiction that is the source of the document, material, or information.
(4)  The sharing of information and documents by the director pursuant to this chapter shall not constitute a delegation of regulatory authority or rulemaking, and the director is solely responsible for the administration, execution and enforcement of the provisions of this chapter.
(5)  No waiver of any applicable privilege or claim of confidentiality in the documents, proprietary and trade secret materials or other CGAD-related information shall occur as a result of disclosure of such CGAD-related information or documents to the director under this section or as a result of sharing as authorized in this chapter.
