We process two sets of information about you, “Personal Information” (your name, address, contact and payment details) and the “Goods Information” you provide to register your appliance or device (your name, address, contact and goods details).

International transfers of your information

We may transfer your information to countries (including the US and South Africa) which may not have data protection laws which provide the same level of protection as provided in the UK. Where this occurs we use approved ‘Standard Contractual Clauses’ as an appropriate safeguard to ensure that such information is adequately secured and protected.

Keeping your information

We keep your Personal Information for six years after you terminate your policy so that we can deal with any claims. Your Goods Information we keep for a bit longer, normally 10 years (a reasonable expectation of average product ownership) for health and safety. We also keep your information to send you marketing that you might be interested in, unless we receive a request from you to opt-out of marketing.
