“Personal Information” is information about and which identifies individuals, including, for example, an individual who is an insured and an individual who may simply be referred to in the application for cover or claim form (i.e. director, claimant, witness etc). It is important you read, understand and agree to the following, which applies from 21 December 2001.

We collect personal information from you to be able to provide you with our various services.

If we don’t get the personal information we need, we or any third party we disclose the information to may not be able to provide appropriate services.

We disclose personal information to third parties who we believe are necessary to assist us in providing our services. For example, in arranging and managing your insurance needs we will usually provide information to insurers, reinsurers, other insurance intermediaries, insurance reference bureaus, our advisers such as loss adjusters, lawyers and accountants and others involved in the claims handling process. We also provide it to purchasers or our business and related companies.

We take reasonable steps to ensure that whenever we collect, use or disclose personal information, it is accurate, complete and up-to-date.

When you provide us with personal information about other individuals, we rely on you to have made them aware that you will or may provide their information to us, the purposes we use it for, the types of third parties we disclose it to and how they can access it (as described in this document). If it is sensitive information we rely on you to have obtained their consent to the above.

If you have not done either of these things, you must tell us before you provide the relevant information.

If we give you personal information, you and your representatives must only use it for the purposes we agreed to.
