Evans and Lewis Insurance is a data controller and our data protection officer is Mark Snow.
We act as your agent in obtaining quotations and will treat all your personal information as private and confidential to us and anyone else involved in the normal course of arranging and administering your insurance. We will collect data, which will include personal information about you and other persons to be covered under the policy and risk details required to effect the policy, solely for the purpose of obtaining and providing insurance quotations, arranging and administering your insurance. However, provision of data to us is under a contractual requirement and we will be unable to offer any quotation for insurance if you refuse to provide certain personal data, including health, financial and criminal records data where these would affect the provision of cover and/or performance of insurance contracts.
Your information will be shared with insurers, which could include reputable providers in other countries, to enable them to provide accurate terms and they will also obtain data about you and your insurance history from various insurance anti-fraud databases, such as the Claims and Underwriting Exchange (CLUE) as well as publicly available websites and credit referencing agencies. We will not give anyone else any personal information except on your instructions or authority, or where we are required to do so by law, or by virtue of our regulatory requirements. Information about you and your insurances will be held while you are a client and for three years after expiry of your policies. Under the Data Protection Act 1998 all data subjects have the right to see personal information about them that we hold, although a charge of £10 will be made to cover our administration. Please write to our data protection officer at our usual office address.
