Cookies are small text files that are placed on your computer by websites that you visit. They are widely used in order to make websites work, or work more efficiently, as well as to provide information to the owners of the site. At the bottom
of this policy, we have included a table, setting out what cookies we use, and the purposes for which we use them. Most web browsers allow some control of most cookies through the browser settings. To find out more about cookies, including

the cookies stored on your computer when using our website are not directly related to us. As we explain below, at any time, you may object to such activity by contacting us. Receiving data from Service Providers It is possible that
Service Providers may return data to us. They may do this if they have a query regarding a request for quotes that we have sent to them in order to enable us to resolve the query. They may also return data to us, together with confirmation
on whether or not a product has been purchased, in order to enable us to improve our marketing. We may also use such data to create custom and lookalike/similar audiences, as explained above.
We might collect data about you if you:
We use your data (described above) in the following ways:
As explained above, if you submit our web form, we’ll pass your request to one or more relevant Service Providers (named on the consent statement). We will do this in a secure way. For example, using HTTP Secure (HTTPS), which means the
data is encrypted. The Service Providers then contact you directly with your quotes. They may contact you by telephone, text/SMS or email. Before we pass your request to any Service Providers, our service may involve an element of
automated decision-making. Our technology platform may automatically assess your product requirements and pass your request to such Service Providers that you would like to receive requests for quotes at the time your request is made.
We store IP addresses in order to stop unwanted traffic (i.e. spam) to our site. For example, if we become aware that spam is coming from a particular IP address (i.e. computer or location), we can block that IP address. From time
to time, we also share IP addresses with Service Providers to enable Service Providers to verify that requests for Quotes have come from a particular country.
For certain products, before connecting you with relevant Service Providers, we may call you to confirm your details or requirements. We may also call you to ask about your experience using our site and service, and dealing with the Service
Providers with which we connected you.
If you use our quote request service, then, as an existing user, we would like to email you or send you text/SMS messages about similar products and services for which we think you might like quotes or information (“Other Products”). You
will always be given an opportunity to opt-out of such messages before we send them, and we will not send such messages if you have opted out.
We like to work with Facebook, Google and other platforms (“Platforms”) to reach out to you with adverts for other products. We also like to use platforms to reach out to other people who might like to use our quote request service.
We do this in two ways. In both cases, your data, along with other data, is used to create a custom audience and/or a lookalike/similar audience. Whenever an audience is shared with a platform, the data is first hashed and pseudonymised, meaning that any data within the audience that could identify a person is replaced with an artificial identifier. So the process is secure. Also, we don’t share more data than we need to for the purpose of creating the audience.Custom audience-A custom audience is a list of existing users of our service (“Existing Users”). From time to time, we share this with Platforms. As explained above, the data is first hashed and pseudonymised. The Platform uses this audience to show our Existing Users our adverts for Other Products. Lookalike/similar audience– A lookalike/similar audience is an audience created by the Platform. From time to time, we share with Platforms a list of Existing Users. The Platform uses this list to find and create lookalikes – i.e. other Platform users who have similar characteristics to the Existing Users – to which it shows our adverts. Again, as explained above, the data is first hashed and pseudonymised.
If you have any questions regarding this notice, or any questions relating to data protection or privacy, you can contact us with the details provided on the website. If you’d like to request and receive quotes or information for the
Product (“Quotes”), please complete and submit our web form.
