Notes

We respect your privacy and are completely committed to protecting it. This Privacy Statement is provided to inform you of our Privacy Policy. Our Web Site is structured so you can visit us on the web without identifying yourself or revealing any personal information. This statement notice is available to you on every page of this website. All information received by us through email links or enquiries will be treated with complete confidentiality.
The cover provided under this policy:
Your insurance is on a ‘claims made’ basis which means that if a claim is made against you then you MUST have a current policy in force. If you do not renew your policy, there is no further cover for any acts carried out from your renewal date. If you do decide to retire, go on maternity leave or take a career break we can provide 2 years run off cover free of charge provided you do not take out any other cover. However it is important to note that such extended reporting period only applies to activities undertaken prior to the date that your policy with us lapsed. We would still expect any new insurers to cover such claims and circumstances if your new insurers write your policy on a “claims made” basis. Any Claims brought against you after expiry of this Period will NOT be covered.
