How to claim

Protecting your information
All personal information about you will be treated as
private and confidential (even when you are no longer a customer), except where the disclosure is made at your request or with your consent in relation to administering your insurance, and except where law requires us. The FCA may ask us to provide it with access to our customer records in order that it may carry out a review of our activities. Under the Data Protection Act 1998 you have a right of access to see personal information about you that is held in our records, whether electronically or manually. If you have any queries, please write to The Managing Director at the above address.
Protecting your money
Prior to your premium being forwarded to the insurer, and for your protection, we hold it in a client bank account on trust for you. Your money will be protected at all times because of the requirements of the FCA rules. We may need to transfer your money to another intermediary in some cases.
We also reserve the right to retain interest earned on this account. By accepting these Terms of Insurance Business you are giving your consent for us to operate in this way.
We will provide you with full details of the payment options available to you when we provide you with your insurance premium. If you choose to enter in a finance arrangement, this will be subject to interest charges that we will confirm to you when providing the full details. Importantly, the arrangement you will enter into will be with the finance company not us. It is an entirely separate contract irrespective of the insurance contract. In the event of your failure to meet with the contractual obligations regarding payment the finance provider could approach the insurer to seek a termination of the insurance contract to recoup their outstanding finance arrears. You will be liable to pay their costs and charges if you do not keep up your repayments and cover is cancelled under your policy. This is because the agreement is between you, the policyholder and the finance company direct, not us or the insurer.
Please note we use Premium Credit for premium finance facilities. Should you fail to keep up payments on an instalment agreement or on premium finance, your policy cover will cease.
We are covered by the Financial Services Compensation Scheme. You may be entitled to compensation from the scheme if we cannot meet our obligations. This depends on the type of business and the circumstances of the claim. Most Insurance contracts are covered for 90% of the claim, without any upper limit. Compulsory insurances (for example, motor insurance and employers’ liability insurance), are covered for 100% of the claim, without any upper limit Further information about compensation scheme arrangements is available from the FSCS on 020 7892 7300 or by visiting http://www.fscs.org.uk/
Your Duty of Disclosure
Your insurance is based upon the information provided to the insurance company and you must ensure that all such information is complete and accurate, and that any facts that may influence the insurer’s decision to accept and pay a valid claim are disclosed. Failure to disclose material information may invalidate your insurance and could mean that part, or all, of a claim may not be paid.
