Evans Insurance Brokers Ltd will be the Controller of the personal data you provide to us. We collect personal data about you, which includes your name, address and contact information, as well as details of what it is you want to arrange insurance for. For certain types of insurance we will need to collect sensitive personal information about you, which can include such things as criminal and motoring convictions and health conditions.
If there are other people who will be named on the insurance policy, or who will be a beneficiary of the insurance we will need to collect similar personal information about them too. Before you tell us personal details about another person, you will need to make sure that you have their permission to give us their information.
Why we need it
We need to collect personal information in order to obtain insurance quotations that you have asked us for and to enable us to arrange the contract of insurance if you accept our quotation. We will not collect any personal data from you that we do not need in order to provide our broking services to you.
