What protection do I have in respect of confidential information?

We understand that confidential information is critical to your business and you can have the utmost confidence that it will be treated as strictly confidential. However, both MFL Science & Technology and insurers will need to be party to some information that may be commercially sensitive to fully understand and assess your risks.

To this end our standard terms and conditions contain the following provision:

Confidentiality and security

Information provided by you to MFL Science & Technology will remain confidential, and will only be disclosed in the normal course of negotiating, maintaining or renewing your insurances unless you have consented otherwise. Disclosure may also be made to enable the FCA to fulfil its regulatory function, or where we are legally obliged to disclose the information.

We are registered under the Data Protection Act 1998, and we undertake to comply with the act in all our dealings with your personal data.

Please bear in mind that any provision prohibiting MFL Science & Technology from releasing this information to any third party will need to be amended to include to permit the release of the information for the purposes of obtaining insurance quotations.
