INFORMATION ABOUT YOU AND YOUR VISITS TO OUR SITE
TRANSACTIONS CONCLUDED THROUGH OUR SITE
Contracts of insurance concluded through our site or as a result of visits made by you are governed by the Client Terms of Business Agreement (TOBA) and should there be any conflict between these terms and conditions and the TOBA, the TOBA shall prevail. You are responsible for determining whether any contract of insurance purchased by you, whether concluded through our site or by email, telephone or post, is suitable for your demands and needs.
All insurance policies are underwritten by one or more insurers. All quotations given through this site or as a result of visits to this site are an indication of what the premium is likely to be and is based on the information provided by you (Quote Indication). The Quote Indication can vary at any time, and for the avoidance of doubt you will not be insured until you receive confirmation from us that insurance is in force, whether it is via our site, or by email, telephone or post. Once the proposal has been accepted and the contract of insurance has been concluded we will notify you promptly of the occurrence of the same whether it is via our site, email, telephone or post.
All relevant information about you must be entered on to the Proposal Page or any other proposal form that you are required to submit. If you fail to disclose any relevant information about you this may invalidate or vary the insurance policy and the insurers may avoid cover or alter the terms of the insurance policy. For the avoidance of doubt we, other members of the Group, insurers and any third parties connected to us have no responsibility for, or accuracy of the Statement of Fact or any information entered on to the Proposal Page or any other proposal form, and will not be responsible, or liable to you or any third party for the consequences of any such failure.
The insurers, or us where we have delegated authority from the insurers, retain the sole discretion to bind contracts of insurance proposed through our site or as a result of visits made by you to the site. If the automated process provided through our site has rejected the proposal you may be referred to an employee of us. Cover may still be available by contacting us by email, telephone or post quoting you unique Quote ID.

For the avoidance of doubt we shall be entitled to disclose such information where necessary to insurers or reinsurers, actuaries, auditors, professional agents and advisers, any third party who is claiming that any Disclosure constitutes a violation of their intellectual property rights, or of their right to privacy and the Group. This clause will not apply to information which was rightfully in our possession prior to you disclosing the same, which is already public knowledge or becomes so at a future date (otherwise than in breach of these terms and conditions) or which is trivial or obvious.
We will not be responsible, or liable to any third party, for the content or accuracy of any Disclosure.
We have the right to remove any Disclosure if, in our opinion, such Disclosure does not comply with the Content Standards.
