We follow strict security procedures in the storage and disclosure of your information as required by law under the Data Protection Act 1998
How we will use your data
In order to provide our services, we need to collect and process personal data about you and disclose this information to a number of third party service providers. This may include collection of any sensitive data as defined within the Data Protection Act 1998, or additional data collected by us not directly obtained via our website. By using our website, you confirm your explicit consent to such data being processed by ourselves or any third party providers that we may use.
We may use your data to review and analyse market trends and to track sales data, including but not limited to data provided as part of your quotation, information on how you use our website, pages you have viewed and which website you used previously to visit ours. We may also pass this data to third parties for analytical purposes. Certain providers may compare your information against data they, or the company behind the brand they represent or their group of companies, already hold on you from existing products or services, and share this with the underwriters for the purpose of analysing market trends or to assess membership and transactions against certain loyalty schemes and apply a discount if applicable.
