All of our products are available to be purchased by UK residents.
This policy explains how we collect and use your personal information.
As with all other insurance companies, we collect certain information that you provide in the process of buying a policy from us or if you volunteer information that enables us to keep in touch with you.
This information may include personal details that you submit including your name, address, email address, date of birth and so on.
We will only ever contact you at your request or if you have opted to receive information from us from time to time, or as part of the administration of your policy.
We also gather data that enables Emerald to track how you use this website – which pages you visit and so on. This helps us to provide you with the most relevant information when you visit the website.
We use “cookies” to collect this data. A cookie is information that any website puts on your internet-enabled device so that it can remember you at a later stage. Typically, a cookie records your preferences when using a particular site.
How we use your information
We only use your information to administer the sale of our products to you, the consumer.
We will never share your information with third parties that are not directly involved in the administration of our insurance policies, unless you have given us specific consent to do so, but we may share it with other Emerald companies as part of our efforts to offer you better services and products.
Our partners that are involved in the administration of our insurance policies include our underwriters, claims handlers and our customer call centre provider.
Information may also be disclosed to regulatory organisations that oversee our activities as a UK regulated entity.
In addition, we may use your information for the purposes of renewing your policy, research into making our products even better and in rare instances, for the purposes of crime prevention.
From time to time, Emerald may contact you by email, telephone, SMS or via other means, such as on social media sites, to tell you about products and services that we hope will be of interest to you.
