Principal Insurance is committed to protecting the privacy and security of your personal information. This Policy tells you what information we collect, why we collect it, what we do with it and your legal rights regarding your personal data.
We will only use your information on the basis that it is necessary to administer your insurance contract or help you make a claim. Where we need to pass information to other firms, it will only be for that purpose. These firms will be Insurers, other insurance brokers, price comparison sites and firms handling claims. It includes finance providers, debt collection agencies and firms that process or administer our records.
When we contact you, it will either be for one of the above reasons, or because we have a legitimate interest in marketing related products. Any other marketing will only be made with your consent, and you will be able to withdraw your consent or unsubscribe easily at any time.
