We are governed by the Data Protection legislation applicable in the United Kingdom.
For the purpose of the relevant legislation, the Data Controller in relation to any personal data you supply is Markerstudy Insurance Services Limited.
We may provide your (or any named third party) driving licence number (DLN) and other details to the DVLA to confirm licence status, entitlement and relevant restriction information and endorsement/conviction data.
Searches may be carried out prior to your policy commencing and at any point during your insurance policy including any mid-term adjustment and renewal stage. For details relating to information held about you by the DVLA please visit www.dvla.gov.uk.
The DVLA may also be used to search your (or any named third party’s) no claims discount (NCD) details against a no claims discount database to obtain information in relation to your NCD entitlement.
We may pass details of your no claims discount to certain organisations to be recorded on a NCD database.
Where you have given us your consent to do so, we will send you information about products and services of ours and other companies in our Group which may be of interest to you. We may contact you by telephone, letter or email (as you have indicated).
You have a right at any time to stop us from contacting you for marketing purposes or giving your information to other members of the Group.
If you no longer wish to be contacted for marketing purposes then please contact our Data Protection Officer (contact details below).
Your policy details will be added to the Motor Insurance Database (MID), run by the Motor Insurers’ Bureau (MIB). MID and the data stored on it, including your personal details, may be looked at and used by certain statutory and/or authorised bodies including the Police, the DVLA, the Insurance Fraud Bureau and other bodies permitted by law.
If you are involved in an accident (in the UK or abroad), insurers and/or the MIB may search the MID to obtain relevant information.
Persons pursuing a claim in respect of a road traffic accident (including citizens of other countries) may also obtain relevant information which is held on the MID.
It is vital that the MID holds your correct registration number. If it is incorrectly shown on the MID you are at risk of having your vehicle seized by the Police. You can check that your correct registration details are shown on the MID at www.askmid.com
We carry out fraud checks on our customers. We do this in order to prevent fraud and also to help us make decisions about the provision, pricing and administration of insurance.
When carrying out these checks, we will search against fraud detection databases. We may pass details about you to some of these databases. Law enforcement agencies, financial service providers, fraud prevention agencies, police and other organisations may also access these databases.
Under Data Protection Laws you have certain rights; these include for example, a right to understand what data we hold on you and a right to ask us to amend that data if it is incorrect.
If you have any questions about how we use your data, or to exercise any of your data rights please contact our Data Protection Officer at:
