Any loss or damage to any property (including computers and the loss or
corruption of data) caused, directly or indirectly, by the failure of any
electronic equipment, whether belonging to you or not, to correctly
recognise, accept, respond to or process any date or part of a date or
any data or instruction.
VERY IMPORTANT NOTICE
Please note that this home insurance policy is designed to insure your
home against loss or damage. It does not cover the maintenance of
your home. That means your insurer will not cover the cost of wear
and tear or maintenance costs such as defective rendering, repointing
chimneys or general roof maintenance.
Your insurer also does not cover damage that happens over time such
as damp, rot or damage from vermin. You should keep your property in
good repair, and take reasonable steps to avoid loss or damage.

15 General Conditions
You must comply with these conditions. If you do not, the insurer may
refuse to pay a claim or your policy may be affected.

be conditional upon the compliance with the terms and conditions of this
policy.
2. Other insurance.
If at the time of any incident which results in a claim under your policy
there is any other insurance in force covering the same liability, loss or
damage, your insurer will only pay their share of the claim. The share to
be paid by each insurer will be determined either by the appropriate
court or by agreement between the insurers involved.
3. Your duty to prevent loss or damage.
You must keep your buildings in sound condition and in good repair,
and you should consult a suitably qualified expert if you are unsure
whether or not you are complying with this condition. You must take all
reasonable steps to safeguard your buildings, contents or personal
property against loss or damage and to prevent accidents. If loss or
damage does occur, you must take all reasonable steps to prevent
further loss or damage.
4. Changes in risk.
As soon as reasonably possible, you must tell us about any change in
circumstances that might affect the possibility of loss, damage or injury.
At the commencement of your insurance, we provided you with a
Statement of Insurance on which your policy is based. If any of this
information changes at any time, you must tell us as soon as reasonably
possible and we will make the necessary changes to your policy. Any
changes in risk could affect your premium and might result in terms
being applied to your policy.
5. Your obligations following a claim.
In the event of a claim or possible claim under this policy, you must not
negotiate, admit fault or make any offer, promise or payment without
your insurers written consent. Additionally, you must:
i) Inform the police as soon as possible and obtain a crime
reference number or loss report number as appropriate if the loss
or damage is caused by theft or attempted theft, riot, civil
commotion, strikes, labour disturbances, malicious acts,
vandalism or loss of property;
ii) Tell your insurer as soon as reasonably possible and give your
insurer full details;
iii) Give your insurer written notice as soon as possible, but no later
than seven days, after you know about any pending prosecution,
inquest or fatal inquiry in connection with anything that occurs for
which there may be liability under this policy;
iv) Send your insurer, as soon as reasonably possible, every
relevant letter, claim, writ, summons or process. If your claim is
accepted your insurer will refund your reasonable costs;
v) As soon as reasonably possible after the injury, loss or damage,
provide your insurer with details of the claim, including any
detailed particulars and proofs, certificates or other documents
that your insurer may reasonably require. If the claim is met
under the terms of this policy, your insurer will refund your
reasonable costs;
vi) Give your insurer any information and assistance that your
insurer might reasonably require.
6. Your insurers rights following a claim.
If you make a claim or possible claim under this policy, your insurer
will at their option:
i) Repair, reinstate or replace the lost, damaged or stolen property
or pay the cost of reinstatement through a repair or replacement
network nominated by your insurer;
ii) In an emergency, enter the building where the loss or damage
has occurred. To safeguard the insured property against further
loss or damage, your insurer may take and keep possession of
the insured property and deal with the salvage in a reasonable
manner. No property may be abandoned to them;
iii) Exercise sole control at your insurers cost over dealing with any
third party claim and its associated legal proceedings relevant to
it. Your insurer will keep you informed of all developments;
iv) Pursue in your name, but for your insurers benefit and at your
insurers cost, any claims for damages or other costs.
7. Fraud.
If fraud is established your insurer will:
i) Not pay any claim under this policy;
ii) Cancel your cover without any return premium or void your
policy from the start date;
iii) Be entitled to recover the amount of any claim your insurer has

paid under this policy;


iv) Recover any investigation and legal costs;
v) Inform the police, financial services organisations and anti-fraud
databases such as CIFAS, CUE and Hunter.

D Cancellation
How to cancel your policy
You must contact us if you wish to cancel your policy.
We will cancel your policy either from the date you contact us, or from
any later date you specify. The policy cannot be cancelled from an
earlier date than when you contact us.
If you are paying your premium by instalments, you must still pay us
any balance of premium due. Cancelling any direct debit instruction does
not mean you have cancelled the policy. You will still need to follow the
instructions above.
In the event of cancellation, a cancellation fee shown in the Additional
Important Information document, will apply.
Cancellation by you within the first 14 days
If you cancel your policy within 14 days of the date you receive your
policy documents we will refund a percentage of the premium
calculated on a daily pro rata basis equivalent to the period of cover left
unused, unless you have made a total loss claim in which case no
refund of premium will be given and all premiums would be due.
Cancellation by you after the first 14 days
If you cancel this policy after the 14 day period, we refund a percentage
of the premium calculated on a daily pro rata basis equivalent to the
period of cover left unused, providing no claims have been made. If a
claim has been made, or there has been an incident which may lead to a
claim, no refund of premium will be given and all premiums would be
due.
Where we cancel your policy
We may cancel your policy, if there are serious grounds to do so such
as non-payment, failure to supply requested validation documentation
(proof of Security etc.) or you have provided us with incorrect
information and you have failed to provide a remedy when requested.
Where we cancel we will provide seven days prior written notice to your
last known address unless we are required to cancel earlier. If we cancel
your policy, we will refund a percentage of the premium calculated on a
daily pro rata basis equivalent to the period of cover left unused,
providing no claims have been made. If a claim has been made, or there
has been an incident which may lead to a claim, no refund of premium
will be given and all premiums would be due.
If we cancel your policy on the grounds of fraud, cancellation may be
immediate and we may keep any premium you have paid. We may also
inform the police of the circumstances.

Data Protection Notice

Please read this notice as it explains the purposes for which we or your
insurer will use personal data and sensitive personal data which we
hold. Please show this notice to anyone covered under this policy.
Your personal data
For mutual security calls are recorded and may be monitored for training
purposes and to prevent and detect fraud. For the purposes of the Data
Protection Act 1998 the Data Controller in relation to the personal data
you supply is BISL Limited.
Insurance administration, renewal and claims handling
Information you supply may be used for the purpose of insurance
administration, renewal and claims handling by your insurer, its agents,
reinsurers and your intermediary. In assessing any claims made, your
insurer may undertake checks against publicly available information
such as Electoral Register, County Court Judgments, bankruptcy or
repossession information. Information may also be shared with other
insurers either directly or via those acting for your insurer such as loss
adjusters or investigators.
Claims & Underwriting Exchange register
Insurers pass information to the Claims and Underwriting Exchange
register run by Insurance Database Services Limited (IDS Ltd), the
Hunter Database, run by MCL Software Ltd to help us check information
provided and also to prevent fraudulent claims. When we or your
insurer deal with your request for insurance, we or your insurer may
search these registers and any other relevant registers. Under the
conditions of your policy, you must tell us about any incident which
may give rise to a claim. When you tell us about an incident, we or your
insurer will pass this information to the registers and any other relevant
registers. You can ask us for more information about this.

Search files made available to them by credit reference agencies who


may keep a record of that search. We or the insurer or the credit
provider may also pass to credit reference agencies information they
hold about you and your payment record. The information will be
used by other credit providers for making credit decisions about you
and the people with whom you are financially associated for fraud
prevention, money laundering prevention and for tracing debtors. We
or the insurer or the credit provider may ask credit reference
agencies to provide a credit scoring computation. Credit scoring uses
a number of factors to work out risks involved in any application. A
score is given to each factor and a total score obtained. Where
automatic credit scoring computations are used by us or the insurer
or the credit provider, acceptance or rejection of your
application/renewal will not depend only on the results of the credit
scoring process.
Use information relating to you and your home supplied to us or the
insurer or the credit provider by other third parties.

Overseas transfer of data


We and the other companies processing your data for the purposes
mentioned above may from time to time need to undertake some of the
processing in countries outside of the European Economic Area which
may not have laws to protect your personal data, but in all cases we will
ensure that it is kept securely and only used for the purposes for which
you provided it. Details of the companies and countries involved can be
provided on request.
Fraud prevention
In order to prevent and detect fraud we or your insurer may at any time:
Share information about you with other organisations including the
Police; Undertake credit searches; Check and/or share your details with
fraud prevention and detection agencies.
If false or inaccurate information is provided and fraud is identified,
details will be passed to fraud prevention agencies. Law enforcement
agencies may access and use this information.
We, your insurer or other organisations may also access and use this
information to prevent fraud and money laundering, for example when:
Checking details on applications for credit and credit related or other
facilities; Managing credit and credit related accounts or facilities;
Recovering debt; Checking details on proposal and claims for all types of
insurance; Checking details of job applicants and employees
Please contact us on the number shown on your policy documentation
if you want to receive details of the relevant fraud prevention agencies.
We, your insurer or other organisations may access and use from other
countries the information recorded by fraud prevention agencies.
Marketing and market research
BISL Limited and other carefully selected companies may use your
information to keep you informed by post, telephone, email or other
means of products and services which may be of interest to you. They
may also contact you to conduct market research. Your information may
also be used for the above purposes after your policy has lapsed.
If you do not wish your information to be used for these purposes
please write to the Data Protection Officer at the address below.

Proceedings are not good or that Your interests can be better

Our decision. We will then not provide any more cover for the case.

independent solicitor or barrister. If We cannot agree on a suitable
solicitor or barrister, the President of the Law Society will choose
one. If the solicitor's opinion disagrees with Our view, We will pay the
costs. If the solicitor's opinion disagrees with Your view You will pay
the costs.
13) We may contact Your Professional Adviser directly. You must
cooperate with Us and keep Us informed about the progress of the
claim or anything affecting its outcome. We can ask Your nominated
representative for any information to do with the Proceedings. You
must tell the Professional Adviser to give Us this information.

beginning of the case.
