Privacy Policy

Schofields Ltd has created this privacy statement in order to demonstrate our firm commitment to privacy. The following discloses the information gathering and dissemination practices for this Web site.

Schofields Ltd is the sole owner of the information collected on www.schofields.ltd.uk. Schofields Ltd collects information from our users at several different points on our Web site, primarily via the online quotation and renewal facility.

Information Automatically Logged

Like most standard Web site servers we use log files. This includes internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, internet service provider (ISP), referring/exit pages, platform type, date/time stamp, and number of clicks to analyse trends, administer the site, track user's movement in the aggregate, and gather broad demographic information for aggregate use. IP addresses, etc. are not linked to personally identifiable information. We use your IP address to help diagnose problems with our server and to administer our Web site.

The information we hold will be accurate and up to date. You can check the information that we hold about you by emailing us. If you find any inaccuracies we will delete or correct it promptly. We will not transfer personal information outside the European Economic Area.

Online Forms

Our site uses Online Quotation forms, which enable customers to request a quote and obtain online insurance cover. We collect contact information, property details, financial information, and demographic information via the form. Data collected is used to process polices and forward information about our company. If we have trouble processing the proposal form, the information is used to contact the user.

Financial information that is collected is used to bill the user for products and services. We maintain strict security standards and procedures with a view to preventing unauthorised access to your data.

Demographic and profile data is also collected at our site, via Online Forms and every time you e-mail us your details. The information collected is only used for administration and marketing purposes by Schofields and is not passed on to third parties.

External Links

This Web site contains links to other sites. Please be aware that we, Schofields Ltd, are not responsible for the privacy practices of such other sites. We encourage our users to be aware when they leave our site to read the privacy statements of each and every Web site that collects personally identifiable information. This privacy statement applies solely to information collected by this Web site.

Choice/Opt-out

Our users are given the opportunity to 'opt-out' of having their information used for marketing and promotional communications. Users who purchase insurance from us, but don't want any marketing material, can keep their email address off of our lists by emailing us with unsubscribe in the subject line. We will not e-mail you in the future unless you have given us your consent. We will never collect sensitive information about you without your explicit consent.

Contacting the Web Site

If you have any questions about this privacy statement, the practices of this site, site security or your dealings with this Web site, you can contact the webmaster pschofield @ schofields.ltd.uk

Security

This Web site takes every precaution to protect our users' information. When users submit sensitive information via the Web site, their information is protected both online and off-line.

When our online quotation/proposal form asks users to enter sensitive information (such as credit card number), that information is encrypted and is protected with the best encryption software in the industry - SSL with 1024bit encryption. While on a secure page, such as our quotation or renewal form, the lock icon on the bottom of Web browsers such as Netscape Navigator and Microsoft Internet Explorer becomes locked, as opposed to unlocked, or open, when users are just 'surfing'.

While we use SSL encryption to protect sensitive information online, we also do everything in our power to protect user-information off-line. All of our users' information, not just the sensitive information mentioned above, is restricted in our offices. Only employees who need the information to perform a specific job (for example, our accounts department or a customer service representative) are granted access to personally identifiable information. ALL employees are kept up-to-date on our security and privacy practices. Our employees are notified and/or reminded about the importance we place on privacy, and what they can do to ensure our users' information is protected.

Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet is 100% secure. Schofields Ltd cannot guarantee the security of any information you send to us or from our online products or services, and you do so at your own risk. Upon receiving transmitted data, we maintain strict security standards and procedures with a view to preventing unauthorised access to your data.
