Privacy policy

We recognise your right to privacy. When you get a quote or decide to buy online, you will be asked to "opt in" to our Privacy Policy i.e. to confirm that you agree to our use of any personal information that we may collect from you. If you give your consent we will be able to provide you a better service by keeping you informed about other offers from Shield Total Insurance. We promise never to give your details to any other organisation for marketing purposes and will only send you information about Shield Total Insurance.

  1. Collation of Information
    Upon membership registration, you will be required to provide some information about yourself. Further information may be requested upon entering our competitions, promotions or special offers.
  2. Sensitive Information
    We are required by law to advise you that occasionally the selections you make when using our services may indicate information about you that you may regard as sensitive - such as your date of birth. As with all of the personal information you provide to us, you can be assured that any sensitive information you choose to supply to us will only be used in accordance with this Privacy Policy.
  3. How we use the Information you provide
    We use the information you provide to supply goods and services to you. In some instances this may require us to share this information with our subsidiaries, affiliates or other members of our group.
  4. Third Parties
    In order to provide the services of our third party partners to you, we may need to pass your personal information to them. We will require our partners to abide faithfully by the terms of our Privacy Policy. We may from time to time provide links to third party web sites and businesses that are not affiliated with us although our branding may appear on these sites. If you provide any personal information to the operators of these sites or businesses, their use of your personal information will be subject to the privacy policy applicable to their site or business. This may not be the same as our Privacy Policy. We advise you to read any third party privacy policy carefully before providing any personal information to a third party.
  5. Contact
    We, our partners and the third parties to which you choose to submit any personal information may contact you by letter, fax, e-mail or telephone to provide services and facilities to you.
  6. Transfer
    We may transfer your data to any purchaser of our business in order that they can continue to provide services and facilities to you. Some of our group companies and third party partners may be located overseas in countries that do not have as extensive data protection laws as the United Kingdom.
  7. Children
    We do not allow persons who we know to be younger than 18 to register on our website and do not therefore knowingly solicit personal information from persons aged younger than 18 or share such information with third parties.
  8. General
    Your personal information will be held and used by us in accordance with United Kingdom data protection legislation. We may change this Privacy Policy from time to time. Any change will take effect once the revised Privacy Policy is available. If you have any queries about this Privacy Policy, please feel free to contact us.
