All insurers supply details of policies to databases, which the police and other insurers have access to. This helps to detect people who break the law by not taking out insurance and assists when dealing with claims.  We will only use and disclose information we have about you in the normal course of arranging and administering your insurance.  We may also use this information to inform you about other products and services which we feel may be appropriate to you.

Insurers and their agents may share information with each other to prevent fraudulent claims and to assess whether to offer insurance (including privacy terms), via the Claims and Underwriting Exchange (CUE) Register operated by Insurance Database Services Ltd.

With regards to Motor Insurance, your policy details will be added to the Motor Insurance Database (MID) which is run by the Motor Insurers Information Centre (MIIC).

Persons with a valid claim in respect of a road traffic accident (including citizens of other countries) may also obtain certain information which is held on the MID.
