This policy applies to all users of our website and/or our comparison services.
This policy applies to the information about yourself that you choose to provide us with or that you allow us to collect. This includes:
We are a data controller in relation to the information that you provide us with. As a result, we are legally responsible for how that information is handled.
We will comply with the Data Protection Act 1998 in the way we use and share your personal data. Among other things, this means that we will only use your personal data:
We may process your personal data ourselves or through data processors who will process data on our behalf. If we use data processors we will remain responsible for ensuring that they comply with this policy and data protection law.
We will take every reasonable precaution to safeguard the personal information that you supply.
In particular, we may need to collect your sensitive personal information to allow us to provide you with quotes, for instance information relating to criminal convictions or to your health. You consent to our use of such information for the purposes set out below.
If you give us your personal information, we will use it to provide you with the quote comparison information you request, including reminding you about your insurance.
We advise you that insurance providers exchange information through various databases, including the Claims and Underwriting Exchange (CUE), which holds a record of incidents reported to insurers by policyholders and third party claimants. This information exchange enables insurers to validate the information provided by you, both about yourself and any other person named on the application, and aims to reduce fraudulent claims. Insurers may use this information to consider the risk of your application.
If you provide us with your driving licence number (‘DLN’) via our quote form we may pass this information to the DVLA in order for a search to be carried out to confirm your (or any named driver’s) licence status, entitlement and relevant restriction information and endorsement/conviction data. Carrying out these searches help insurers validate your information, preventing fraud and reducing incidents of negligent misrepresentation and non-disclosure. DLN searches may be carried out as part of your quote or at any point throughout the duration of your insurance policy. These searches will not appear on your (or the named driver’s) driving licence record. You can find details of the information that the DVLA currently hold about you at www.dvla.gov.uk.
Some insurance providers who offer products designed for students or graduates may also undertake additional checks against higher education sources to verify your student or graduate status.
By submitting your personal information, you agree that we may for the purposes set out above disclose your information to our agents and service providers, some of which may be located outside the European Economic Area in countries providing less protection for personal data than the UK.
If you request a quote comparison through our website, we will forward the personal information you submit to selected insurers, insurance brokers and other related third parties to enable us to obtain a quote for you. We cannot provide a quote comparison to you unless we are able to share your personal information in this way.
If you click through to an insurer’s site the insurers may use your personal information for their own purposes, which may include contacting you by mail, telephone or email, and any use by these insurers will be subject to the insurers own terms and conditions and/or privacy policies.
Sometimes your data will be used by third parties for analysis purposes or to help them build data products. In these instances, the information is aggregated and wherever possible anonymised in line with the Information Commissioners code of practice.
All third party users of your data are required to adopt and implement best practice security measures to prevent the loss of or unauthorised access to your personal information.
If you have any queries or concerns about the data usage please contact us by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org .

Under the Data Protection Act, we are also permitted to share some information with third parties who use such data for non-marketing purposes (including identification and fraud prevention, debt collection and returning assets to you). This would include the data you provide to us today, at any time in the past and in the future.
To ensure our insurers and credit providers have the necessary facts to assess your insurance risk, verify your identity, to help prevent fraud and to provide you with their best premium and payment options, they may obtain information from third parties at quotation and renewal and in certain circumstances where policy amendments are requested.
This information includes a quotation search from a credit referencing agency. This search will appear on your credit report and will be visible to other credit providers. It will be clear that this is a quotation rather than a credit application by you to pay by monthly instalments.
