Providing information to your insurers
Your insurance is based upon the information provided to the insurance company. Unless otherwise indicated by the specific insurer underwriting your particular policy, the following circumstances apply.
For Consumers (individuals buying insurance wholly or mainly for purposes unrelated to their trade, business or profession) this means that you must take reasonable care to answer all questions fully and accurately. Once cover has been arranged, you must immediately notify us of any changes to the information that has been provided to your insurers. Failure to provide accurate and up to date information may invalidate your insurance cover and mean that a claim may not be paid.
All other customers must disclose all ‘Material Facts’ (any information that may influence the insurer’s decision over cover or terms) prior to inception and throughout the period of insurance. Failure to disclose material information may invalidate your insurance cover and could mean that a claim may not be paid.
