All personal information about you will be treated as private and confidential except where the disclosure is made at your request, with your consent, in relation to arranging your insurance, or where we are required to by law.
Some or all of the information you supply to us in connection with your insurance proposal will be held on computer and may be passed to insurance and/or other companies for underwriting and claims purposes.

Your Duty to Give Information to Insurers
Your insurance is based upon the information provided to the insurance company and you must ensure that all such information is complete and accurate, and that any facts that may influence the insurer’s decision to accept the risk or the terms offered have been disclosed. The duty to disclose information continues during the life of the policy, and at renewal you must make sure you inform your insurer of any changes affecting your insurance. Your policy must be purchased prior to your trip commencing, and must originate from within the United Kingdom.
You are responsible for all answers or statements on proposal forms, claim forms or other material documents, and you should ensure these are full and accurate. Failure to disclose material information at the start of the policy or advise the insurer of changes to the risk during the period of insurance may invalidate your insurance cover and could mean that part, or all, of a claim may not be paid.
How to claim
Please refer to your policy summary or your policy document if you need to make a claim. You should contact the 24/7 specified claims handlers as soon as possible following an incident. Please do not contact OTIS.
