A summary view of this information will be returned to our clients, which allows them to assess risk and prevent fraudulent applications.

All this information is processed strictly in accordance with the instructions of our customers, whom are data controllers, and is stored securely on servers located within the United Kingdom.

We ask all of our Customers to let individuals applying for insurance know before they share policy or quote information with us for example, by telling you the individual about this in their application form or in the Customer’s privacy notice.

Some of our Customers request us to obtain additional data, such as public credit data and identifier information, such as name, address and date of birth, to verify who you are and to prevent fraudulent Claims activity.

We ask all of our Customers to let individuals know before they share any personal information with us for example, by telling you how their Claims process works in the Customer’s privacy notice.
