The following declaration provides an overview of the data being collected during your visit on www.simplesurance.co.uk and how this data will be used.


The use of our website is usually possible without providing personal information. To the extent that personal data (e.g. email address) is requested, providing such information is always voluntary. Customer data is solely used if our services have been used. In the course of contracting insurance, we will request only details on the product to be insured and your email address (required field). These data will be used to execute the contract and will be shared only in this context with the respective insurer to arrange the chosen product insurance. Without the customer's express consent, your data will not be passed on to uninvolved third parties, unless provided by law.


Personal data are data, which can be attributed to your person, e.g. your name, address, telephone number or email address.


Any personal information you provide are used solely for processing your order and notifying about deliveries as provided by Section 3 of the Federal Data Protection Act. Any use outside this scope, e.g. for advertising purposes without your express consent, is excluded. We will always ask for your explicit authorisation if we use your data for purposes that require your consent according to privacy protection regulations.


Eventually, we will only pass on your data to third parties or public authorities in compliance with privacy laws when we are legally entitled or required to do so.
