Sensitive personal information

This includes information relating to health, disability, and criminal convictions. Such data will be used only in connection with an insurance quotation or the administration of an insurance contract (e.g., in connection with a claim).

What this information is used for and the basis for using it

To provide our service to you, we need to collect and process personal information about you and disclose it to certain other parties such as Insurers. This information is used to administer any insurance, to deal with a claim and provide appropriate services, to recover debt, etc (where required under a contractual necessity). It will also be used to check for possible fraud, money laundering, or other crime (legal obligation). We and your insurer will not be able to provide the requested services without this data.

This information is held in strict confidence, and we take its protection very seriously, for example, the information you submit is encrypted during transmission.

Who we may pass your information to

  • Your insurance broker.
  • Your insurance underwriter.
  • Other entities in order to deal with a claim, for example, various service providers such as vehicle damage assessors and repairers, replacement vehicle providers all may need to be supplied with information about you to assist with the managing of your claim.
  • The Motor Insurance Database (as required by law).
  • LiveChat: The LiveChat system is a platform which allows website visitors to speak to agents (our call centre staff) to discuss an insurance query. This is to provide another contact method to our customers. You can review LiveChat’s privacy policy at:
  • Financial crime agencies, regulatory bodies, public bodies and government bodies which include but is not limited to the police, courts, Driving and Vehicle Licensing Agency (DVLA), Driving Vehicle Agency (DVA), Driving and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA) and Department for Work and Pensions (DWP).
  • To detect and prevent fraudulent claims or other activities we may also share with other insurers, financial institutions, fraud prevention agencies, law enforcement agencies which include the police, public bodies, and our regulators (which include the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA), Prudential Regulation Authority (PRA), Employers’ Liability Tracing Office (ELTO), Motors Insurers’ Bureau (MIB) and Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO).
  • Anyone who you may have asked us to deal with.

It is possible some of these organisations may transfer your data overseas and this may mean it may not be as secure as in the UK (e.g., a foreign government may forcibly access data), but our contracts with them require that they provide the same level of protection as we do.

How long we keep your information.

We only keep information about you if necessary for reasons as outlined above. Normally, we will delete it at the point your claim closes or up to 7 years in case any claim or legal action arises.

Other persons involved with your contract

If you provide personal data about another person (such as a named rider covered by your insurance, or a passenger injured in an accident), it is your responsibility to ensure you have their agreement to do so and, to inform them of all relevant matters relating to their data, to the terms of any insurance and loan arranged.
