Insurance Proposal Terms and Conditions

Material Facts

All material facts must be disclosed. Failure to do so could invalidate the policy. A material fact is one which is likely to influence an insurer in the acceptance and assessment of the risk presentation. If you are in any doubt as to whether a fact is material then it should be disclosed to the insurer. If any changes in circumstances arise during  the period of insurance cover please provide your insurer with details.

A specimen copy of the policy wording is available on request. We recommend you keep a record (including copies  of letters) of all information provided to the insurer for your future reference. A copy of the completed application form will be supplied on request within a period of three months after its completion.

1.  The law applying in that part of the UK, Channel Islands or Isle of Man in which you normally live or (if applicable) the first named policyholder normally lives or

2.  In the case of a business, the law applying to that part of the UK, Channel Islands or Isle of Man where it has its principal place of business or

Telephone Call Recording

For our joint protection telephone calls may be recorded and/or monitored.

Data Protection Act

For the purposes of the Data Protection Act 1998, the Data Controller in relation to any personal data you supply is Enterprise Insurance Services (Swansea) Limited and Anglo Pacific Consultants (London) Ltd.

 

Insurance Administration

The insurer, it associated companies and agents, reinsurers and your intermediary, may use information you supply for the purposes of insurance administration. It may be disclosed to regulatory bodies for the purposes of  monitoring and/or enforcing the insurers compliance with any regulatory rules/codes. Your information may also be used for offering renewal, research and statistical purposes and crime prevention.

It may be transferred to any  country, it may also be transferred to any country including countries outside the European Economic Area for any of these purposes and for systems administration. In assessing any claims made, the insurer or its agents may undertake checks against publicly available information (such as electoral roll, county court judgements, bankruptcy orders or repossessions). Information may also be shared with other insurers either directly or via those acting for the insurer (such as loss adjusters or investigators).

In the case of personal data, with limited exceptions, and on payment of the appropriate fee, you have the right to access and if necessary rectify information held about you.

 

Credit Searches and Accounting

In assessing your application the insurer may search files made available to it by credit reference agencies who may keep a record of that search. The insurer may also pass to credit reference agencies information it holds about  you and your payment record. Credit reference agencies share information with other organisations, enabling  applications for financial products to be assessed or to assist the tracing of debtors or to prevent fraud.

The insurer may ask credit reference agencies to provide a credit scoring computation. Credit scoring uses a  number of factors to work out risks involved in any application. A score is given to each factor and a total score obtained. Where automatic credit scoring computations are used by the insurer, acceptance or rejection of your application will not depend only on the results of the credit scoring process.

 

Sensitive Data

In order to assess the terms of the insurance contract or administer claims that arise, the insurer may need to  collect data that the Data Protection Act defines as sensitive (such as medical history or criminal convictions). By  proceeding with this application you will signify your consent to such information being processed by the insurer or  its agents.

 

Marketing

Aviva group and its agents may use your information to keep you informed by post, telephone, e-mail or other  means about products and services which may be of interest to you. Your information may also be disclosed and used for these purposes after your policy has lapsed. If you do not wish your information to be used for these purposes please write to: Anglo Pacific Consultants (London) Ltd, 80 Leadenhall Street, London, EC3A 3DH.

 

Fraud Prevention and Detection

In order to prevent and detect fraud we may at any time:

  • Share information about you with other organisations and public bodies including the Police;
  • Undertake credit searches and additional fraud searches;
  • Check and/or file your details with fraud prevention agencies and databases, and if you give us false or  inaccurate information and we suspect fraud, we will record this.

We can supply on request further details of the databases we access or contribute to by contacting insurance  advisor.

We and other organisations may also search these agencies and databases to:

  • Help make decisions about the provision and administration of insurance, credit and related services for you  and members of your household;
  • Trace debtors or beneficiaries, recover debt, prevent fraud and to manage your accounts or insurance policies;
  • Check your identity to prevent money laundering, unless you furnish us with other satisfactory proof of identity.

 

Claims History

  • Under the conditions of your policy you must tell us about any Insurance related incidents (such as fire, water  damage, theft or an accident) whether or not they give rise to a claim. When you tell us about an incident we will pass information relating to it to a database.
  • We may search these databases when you apply for insurance, in the event of any incident or claim, or at time  of renewal to validate your claims history or that of any other person or property likely to be involved in the  policy or claim.

You should show these notices to anyone who has an interest in the insurance under the policy.
