Failure to provide further information
If we are collecting your data for a contract and you cannot or do not want to provide this data, the consequences of this could mean the contract cannot be completed or details are incorrect.

Profiling – automatic decision making
When establishing affordability and providing quotes for Financial Services such as Protection contracts we use an online quotation system (through Broker Information Services) to do this. We use the information you provide to us to acquire the best quote.

Automated decisions are made when it comes to underwriting a policy. You have the right to object to the automated underwriting decisions made by our Product Providers in certain circumstances.

Risk Profiling
To establish a customers’ attitude to investment risk (relates to pensions and investments) we use automated calculators which calculate your attitude to various levels of risk after having answered a series of questions. This is necessary to identify the level of investment risk you are prepared to take enabling us to advise you according to your risk rating.

Additional Processing
If we intend to further process your personal data for a purpose other than for which the data was collected, we will provide this information prior to processing this data.
