Privacy Policy - Who we are and our approach to your privacy

In this Privacy Policy, 'we', 'us' and 'our' refers to Legal & Contingency Limited.

Legal & Contingency Limited is a specialist insurance intermediary, who arranges conveyancing and property title indemnity insurance. We will not be changing the way in which we use your personal information, but this Privacy Notice ensures that we continue to comply with the privacy law and regulations that are effective from 25 May 2018.

The privacy and security of your personal information is very important to us so we want to assure you that your information will be properly managed and protected whilst in our hands. Please read this notice carefully as it explains how we and/or carefully selected third parties we work with, collect and use your personal information.

Information we collect

We collect information about you when you apply for a policy on behalf of a client, information relating to a prospective or insured party under a policy, details of any party making a claim under a policy, and if you contact us to make a complaint.

We collect information about previous, current and prospective policyholders; previous, current and prospective parties insured or to whom any benefit is payable under policies; claimants; experts instructed in relation to claims; brokers; solicitors, and licenced conveyancers or legal executives who are authorised to issue legal indemnities for their clients or other third parties.

The personal information that we collect will depend on your relationship with us. We will collect different information depending on whether you are a policyholder, insured party or beneficiary under a policy, claimant, expert, solicitor, licensed conveyancer, legal executive or broker who is authorised to issue legal indemnity insurance for their clients or other third party.

If you provide personal information to us about other individuals you agree:

  • to inform the individual about the content of this Privacy Policy; and
  • to obtain their consent where we indicate that it is required for the processing of that individual's personal data in accordance with this Privacy Policy.

We collect general information such as your name and address, contact details and relationship to the policyholder (where you are not the policyholder). This general information may include your professional work address and details of your permissions and whether you are authorised to issue legal indemnity insurance to your clients.

Information relevant to your insurance policy. This will depend on the nature of the policy but will usually include the name of the insured party and details of the property to be insured

We also collect information relevant to a claim. This may include information relating to anyone who may be involved in the matter giving rise to a claim, and any parties acting in connection with the claim.

We will collect information relating to any previous policies or claims which may include information captured during our telephone calls

This list is not exhaustive and, in specific instances, we may need to collect additional data for the purposes set out in this policy.

Where we get the information

Directly from you or from someone else acting on your behalf. For example, if you are a policyholder, your solicitor, licenced conveyancer, legal executive or broker will provide details of your name and address to enable us to provide you with insurance that they deem you require.

From other third parties who provide a service in relation to your insurance policy or claim such as insurers, surveyors, claim handlers, experts, witnesses and other service providers

From expert's reports and counsel's opinions, from claims services providers, via publicly available sources such as internet search engines and social media sites, via insurance industry fraud prevention and detection databases and sanctions screening tools

From agencies such as the Financial Conduct Authority and from professional regulators and other professional bodies such as the Solicitors Regulation Authority and The Law Society.
