Privacy and Cookie Policy.

At Compare Annuity, we’re committed to protecting your privacy. This Policy explains how we use the information we collect about you, how you can let us know if you’d prefer to limit the use of that information, and procedures we have in place to safeguard your privacy.

Please read this Privacy Policy carefully before using our service.

By submitting your information to us you confirm that you’ve read our policy and accept the terms detailed below.

Your information

We work with a network of annuity specialists to provide you with personally tailored, live annuity quotes from all the UK’s leading providers. To do this we may share your information with carefully selected third parties. This is solely to obtain an accurate quote. By providing this information you’re providing explicit consent for us to share your information in this way.

We’ll never share your information with third parties outside our trusted network without your consent. Where data is provided to our partners, they may also act as data controllers. They’ll determine the way data is processed, and for what reasons. If you’d like more information about how any of our partners process data, please read the privacy policy for the relevant partner. This will be available on their website.

How we use your information

To generate your free, no-obligation personal annuity quote we need to collect some information from you. This could be through our online form or when you speak to a member of our team. We’ll only use this information to communicate directly with you and/or to put you in touch with a member of the trusted network of annuity specialists we work with.

In order to provide you with an accurate annuity quote we may need to collect personal information which data protection legislation defines as sensitive, such as medical history. By obtaining a quote from us, you give your consent to such information being processed by us and our third party providers for the purposes stated in this privacy Policy.

The information we hold is reviewed periodically so it’s not kept for longer than necessary. We may occasionally contact you directly for feedback and market research purposes. But we’ll never share your information with external marketing companies or any third parties outside firms in the trusted network of financial advisors we work with without your consent.

Security

We take the security of your information extremely seriously. In order to prevent unauthorised access or disclosure, we have in place a number of physical, electronic and managerial procedures. This safeguards the information we collect. Our servers are securely located and only accessible to authorised personnel. We block unauthorised traffic using firewalls. And we limit sharing of your information to our network of trusted annuity specialists.

Third party providers and data privacy

If you decide to enter into a contract with a third party provider through a channel on our website, the information you’ve provided to us will be held by them for the purposes set out in that provider’s privacy policy. The provider will also hold any further information requested by, and supplied by you to the third party provider. You’re strongly advised to read your chosen provider’s privacy policy. Ensure you’re satisfied by the purposes the provider will use your personal information before entering into any contract.

If third parties process your personal information on our behalf, we’ll ensure they have the necessary high standards of security in place. Your data will be kept secure and only used in accordance with this Privacy Policy.

Compare Annuity takes no responsibility for the uses to which a provider puts your personal information once you’ve entered into a contract with that provider.

Communication

To ensure you’re kept up to date with news and opportunities Compare Annuity and our sister sites may contact you by email, mail and other means of communication. We’ll provide you with additional info on your requested service or product.

We may also provide you with information, research, offers and promotions of other investments, products and services. If you don’t want to receive this information, write us to let us know at the following address: Lead Technologies, Wharfebank House, Wharfebank Business Centre, Ilkley Road, Otley, West Yorkshire, LS21 3JP.
