What information do we collect and how do we use it?

We collect from you all information we need to assess your application for insurance and to administer your insurance policy and any claims you may make. We provide any information that the insurer who provide our capacity require to enable them to decide whether to insure you and on what terms. This insurer may in turn pass on this information to their reinsurers. Some of these companies are located outside Australia.

 

When you make a claim under your policy, we assist you by collecting information about your claim. Sometimes we also need to collect information about you from others. We provide this information to your insurer (or anyone your insurer has appointed to assist it to consider your claim, e.g. loss adjusters or legal advisers etc) to enable it to consider your claim. Again this information may be passed on to reinsurers.

 

What if you don’t provide some information to us?

The insurance laws also require you to provide your insurers with all the information they need in order to be able to decide whether to insure you and on what terms. You have a duty to disclose the information which relevant to the insurer’s decision to insure you.
