If you complete our webform in order to request Quotes, it will ask you for your contact details, such as your name, company name, email address, telephone number, and postal address. Our webform will also ask you for information regarding your product/service requirements.

We also store and share Internet Protocol (IP) addresses, as explained below. Every computer or device has an IP address – a unique number – which enables it to communicate with other computers and devices over the Internet.
If we call you to confirm your details or requirements, we may ask you for some additional information.
We may monitor and/or record these calls for the purposes of quality control and staff training. Also, occasionally, we may need to provide Suppliers (as explained below) with limited access to such recordings in order to resolve queries and disputes.
How we use your data
To create custom and lookalike/similar audiences
We like to work with Facebook, Google and other platforms (“Platforms”) to reach out to you with adverts for Other Products. We also like to use Platforms to reach out to other people who might like to use our quote request service.
We do this in two ways. We don’t share more data than we need to for the purpose of creating the audience.
Custom audience – A custom audience is a list of existing users of our service (“Existing Users”). From time to time, we share this with Platforms.
Lookalike/similar audience – A lookalike/similar audience is an audience created by the Platform. From time to time, we share with Platforms a list of Existing Users. The Platform uses this list to find and create lookalikes – i.e. other Platform users who have similar characteristics to the Existing Users – to which it shows our adverts.
As we explain below, at any time, you may object to such activity by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
