    The disclosures we make have been detailed in “Who your data is shared with” section above.

    We would like to bring to your attention our obligations to disclose information in the following four exceptional cases permitted by law, and the other situations as set out below. These are:

    • Where there is a duty to the public to disclose;

    Insurers pass information to the Claims Underwriting and Exchange Register, run by Insurance Database Services (IDS). This helps insurers check information and prevent fraudulent claims. When we deal with your request for insurance we may search these registers. Under the conditions of your policy you must tell us about any incident (such as an accident or theft) which may give rise to a claim. When you tell us about an incident we will pass information to the registers.
