2. Privacy policy

2a Personal information
Information that you provide to us about you or anyone who has given you their consent to use their personal data (for example named drivers), will be held and processed in accordance with the Data Protection Act 1998. So that we or your insurer can or otherwise carry out our (or their) obligations in relation to any insurance policy you have bought from us, we need to collect and process personal information about you.

2b Sensitive information
We will also ask you for information defined as sensitive under The Data Protection Act 1998. This can include medical information, unspent convictions and accidents. We need to disclose such information to the underwriters of the insurance policies available through this website so that they can decide whether to offer you insurance or not, and if so on what terms.

3. Data transfer outside the EEA

Your personal information may be transmitted to, and stored in, countries outside the EEA (for example in the case of an insurer's data centre sited abroad). Although the Data Protection Act does not apply in these countries (which in some cases may have weaker laws protecting the privacy of data) we will take all necessary steps to protect the privacy of your personal data.
