Privacy policy

Changes to this statement

We occasionally update our confidentiality statement. You're encouraged to periodically review it and keep informed about how we're protecting your information.

Using your information

The information we collect may be used for insurance administration by us, and may be disclosed to regulatory bodies for monitoring and/or enforcing our compliance with regulatory requirements.

We share the data you provide with selected insurance providers and Feefo – a customer satisfaction research company. We also use your information to perform statistical analysis of our site, to communicate with you, or arrange for delivery of products or services. By asking for a quote, you consent to your data being shared with our insurance providers.

These businesses will not use your personal information except to provide services via us. They are required to maintain the confidentiality of your information.

You may opt out of receiving emails from us containing news and information about our services. All our emails contain an unsubscribe link. Alternatively, call us on 0845 872 5090 or email contactus@policybee.co.uk.

We do not sell, rent or lease customer data to third parties.

Security of your personal information

We secure any personal information you have provided on computer servers in a controlled, secure environment, and protect that information from unauthorised access, use or disclosure.

We will only disclose your personal information, without notice, if required to do so by law or in the good faith belief that such action is necessary to:

  1. Conform to the edicts of the law or comply with legal process served on us.
  2. Protect and defend our rights or property.
  3. Protect the personal safety of our users or the public.

We keep track of visits to our web pages in order to assess how our services are being used and to help us improve them.

Use of cookies

We collect standard internet log information and details of visitor behaviour patterns – essential in helping us provide a fast, bug-free service with relevant information. We use nine cookies, four of which are managed by Google Analytics and persist for one year. Three are managed by AdInsight with one that persists for one year, and one that expires 30 minutes after you leave our website. Two more are managed by us, and expire when you close your web browser.

If accepted by your browser, the four Google Analytics cookies and three AdInsight cookies will store on your hard drive, while the two cookies managed by ourselves will reside in memory. Cookies cannot be used to run programs or deliver viruses to your computer. Cookies are uniquely assigned to you, and can only be read by a web server in the domain that issued the cookie to you.

We consider each cookie essential to our website's performance. Here we chart their identity, individual purpose and categorisation according to The International Chamber of Commerce (ICC) UK’s cookie guide:

What our customers say

Very easy to find the cover I wanted and to put it in place. That ease of doing business is key to me.

An efficient, convenient service.

All aspects of contact, quotation and putting cover in place were exemplary.

Refreshingly straightforward approach; very good people to deal with.

PolicyBee gave me an unbeatable quote online. The process was so easy and I was insured within minutes.
