These companies will not use your information to contact you. Selected third parties will be subject to obligations to process your personal information in compliance with the same safeguards that we deploy.
We work to provide you with information about relevant insurance services. If we intend to pass on your details, we will inform you beforehand and give you an opportunity to object easily through the medium in which we have requested consent. If you tell us that you do not wish to have this information passed (and we are not legally required to do so), we will respect your wishes.
Your personal information may be accessed by staff or suppliers, in, transferred to, and/or stored at, a destination outside the European Economic Area (EEA) in which data protection laws may be of a lower standard than in the EEA. Regardless of location or whether the person is an employee or contractor we will impose the same data protection safeguards that we deploy inside the EEA.
Certain countries outside the EEA have been approved by the European Commission as providing essentially equivalent protections to EEA data protection laws and therefore no additional safeguards are required to export personal information to these jurisdictions. Please see the full list here: http://ec.europa.eu/justice/data-protection/international-transfers/adequacy/index_en.htm
In countries which have not had these approvals, we will either ask for your consent to the transfer, or transfer it subject to European Commission approved contractual terms that impose equivalent data protection obligations directly on the recipient unless we are permitted under applicable data protection law to make such transfers without such formalities.
Under the General Data Protection Regulations 2018, when personal information is being transferred outside the EEA, we as a data controller and processor, are under an obligation to ensure that such transfers are performed in a manner than ensures that your personal information is adequately protected. We may disclose and exchange information with law enforcement agencies and regulatory bodies should we be required to do so following legal request/obligations.
We may disclose and exchange information with law enforcement agencies and regulatory bodies should we be required to so following a legal request.
As part of the process of providing you with the product or service requested, we may undertake certain checks or exchange information through various fraud and credit-check databases.

The periods for which we keep your information depend on the purpose for which your information was collected and the use to which it is put. We will not keep your personal information for longer than necessary for our business purposes or for legal requirements. For example:
– When you expressed an interest in our products or services
