THIS FAIR USE NOTICE RELATES TO [VM] INSURANCE AND CALL [VM] FIRST SERVICES.

This Fair Use Notice is to help you understand how we will collect, process and share your personal data. This allows you to make an informed decision as to whether you want to provide us with your data and if you want to give us additional permissions relating to it.

It also sets out your rights in relation to this data and how to complain to the Information Commissioner if you are unsatisfied with how we have handled your personal data.

DATA WE COLLECT ABOUT YOU.

Data You Provide

We collect the data that you give us when we provide you with a quote or when you make an insurance claim or use the accident aftercare service and any other time that we speak to you or you contact us.

The data we collect from you for a motor insurance quote and in the handling of any claims may include sensitive personal data relating to any convictions you have or that are pending and details of certain medical conditions.

We record telephone calls with you and these call recordings also form part of your personal data.

We also store information about your contacts with us such as the time, length and source of calls, the IP address that you use to access our website, whether you have read or replied to an email we send you; all this data helps us improve our service, detect fraud and resolve complaints when they arise. Our websites may use cookies (small text files) to track and record your activity and to allow us to personalise our websites and enhance your experience of them.

On occasions, you may ask your dealer to provide us with all or some of this data to help you setup a quote, free driveaway cover note, or policy. Where you ask the dealer to do this we treat this as data that you have provided to us and we consider that the dealer has been acting on your behalf in providing us that data.

Data We Collect from Others

As part of providing an insurance quote and administrating a policy including handling a claim we or the insurers we use may collect data from third parties about you including
How we use your data.
We will use your data to fulfil requests you make of us and to meet the requirements of any contract we enter with you or any promotion we provide to you.

For instance
Additionally, we will process your data to fulfil our legitimate interests where they are not overridden by your interests. This includes:
Additionally, should your vehicle manufacturer appoint another company to provide their branded motor insurance in our place, and where you have an active branded motor insurance policy then we will provide your data to that company solely for the purpose of them providing you with a branded motor Insurance renewal quote.

You can ask us not to process the data in any of these ways and we will consider your request fairly (see your rights to object to processing of your data below)

Additional Data Permissions
If you have not asked us for a quote or received a product or service from us we will only promote additional products and services to you where you have given us your consent. For instance, if you give us your renewal date we will consider that consent to send you a quote near the time of your renewal. You can update the consents you have given us here link or by calling us on 01923 692 000.

When you report a claim to us or use our Accident Aftercare service we will share certain data with your franchise dealer, but we will only do that if you give us permission at the time you report the incident to us.

Who else will we provide your data to?We, or the insurers that we deal with, may provide your data to certain third parties in relation to the services that you request from us or that are covered by an insurance contract or promotion you have participated in.

These include

Transfer of data outside of the UK and the EU.
We use servers located in the UK to store your personal information or elsewhere in the EU where it is protected by laws equivalent to those in the UK.

Some of our suppliers and insurers from whom we source insurance quotes may transfer your personal information outside the EU, where this is the case our contracts with such suppliers require them to provide equivalent levels of protection for your personal information as it would have anywhere in the EU.

How long will we keep your data?
Where you do not enter into an insurance contract with us we will delete or anonymise your data during the [third] year after you last provided it to us or updated it unless there is a reason to hold it for longer, such as you made a complaint that was not resolved quickly.

Where you enter into an insurance contract, including a Covernote, arranged by us we will need to hold your data for the period that a third party is entitled to notify a claim under that policy which can be brought many years after the event, however we will pseudo anonymise your data in the [third] year after the expiry of your policy. That means it will be held in our systems in such a way that your data cannot be identified except by reference to a separately held and secured data file.
