- We are an insurance intermediary and provide insurance products for our customers.
- We act as an Independent Intermediary and are authorised and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA). This can be checked on the FCA website, www.fca.org.uk/register, or by phoning them on 0845 606 1234. In respect of collection of any money we act as agents for the Insurer.

- Please refer to the specific Privacy Statement on the tempcover.com website.
The information you supply will be kept confidential to us and our associated and/or subsidiary companies and the Insurers with whom we deal, save or unless we are required by law to make any disclosure. We have taken care to protect any information that you provide to us. We have used encryption methods to keep your personal information and credit or debit card account details as secure as possible.
To prevent fraud and to ensure that we provide our customers with the most competitive quotations, we carry out identity checks for every quotation which we issue. This will not affect your credit history but a note of the check may be recorded.
If you are an agent then your agent login and password is unique and this helps us to protect your information. Agents will need their agent login and password to access their information on the website. Agents should therefore not disclose either their Agent login or password to anyone. We will accept no responsibility or liability if a third party obtains and uses any agency login or password. Agents must tell us immediately if they have lost their agency login or password, or if they believe a third party may have obtained either of them.
- Our products are available to UK residents and depending on the insurer cover may also be available for overseas visitors, excluding residents of the USA, Canada and Australia. By completing a request for a quotation and ticking the relevant box on the Proposers Declaration, you confirm that you comply to these conditions. The content of the site and the products and services offered by us comply with appropriate UK legislation and regulation.
- All answers on any documentation and any other statements made to us, howsoever made, are your responsibility. Due to the short term nature of our policies, changes and additions are not available once the policy has been taken out.
- It is the Proposer's/Policyholder's responsibility, as a matter of Law, to provide complete and accurate information to The Company/Insurer when a policy is taken out and throughout the life of the policy. All statements included in proposal forms, statements of fact, claim forms and other documents whether completed electronically or otherwise, must be full and accurate. Any matters or information which might influence the acceptability or otherwise of the proposal for insurance or the continuance of it must be disclosed at the earliest opportunity. If there is failure to disclose any material information then the insurance may not cover the Policyholder properly or may not operate at all. If you are unsure about any matter you should contact us for assistance. You are advised to keep copies of all documents or correspondence that you send to us for your own protection. If you provide information about other people, then it is your responsibility to check the accuracy of that information and that other people have given you permission to give their information to us.
- A sample of the policy is available for you/the Policyholder, any visitor to the site to download from the site. Please read it carefully as it is that document along with the policy schedule and any certificate of insurance or written agreement that is the basis of the cover purchased. If there is any doubt over any of the terms or conditions, please seek our advice promptly.
- The Company reserves the right to make charges for the arranging of any policy of insurance. These charges will always be clearly identified and shown separately. The Company makes a non-refundable charge (amount specified on the relevant documentation) for the issue of any policy. Administration fees will be identified separately. The Company also reserves the right to make a further charge should any payment default (cheques, credit cards, direct debit or any other method of payment). Any charges made on defaulting payments will be notified to the Policyholder. In the event of any cancellation or voidance of a policy, irrespective of any period of unexpired cover, there will be no return of premium allowed. There is no cooling off period allowed under contracts of less than a 1 month duration.
- All transactions are completed on-line and you should not proceed to the payment screen and then authorise payment if you do not wish us to collect money from you. Quotations are valid and guaranteed only for the period of the Internet session between your point of access and ours.
- If the Policyholder has occasion to claim on the policy we must be notified promptly. We will issue any necessary documentation and pass all details to your Insurer. Liability must not be admitted nor any course of action agreed to until confirmation of such action from the Insurer is received. Notification to us does not constitute notification to the Insurer.
- It is always our intention to provide a first class standard of service. However, if you have any cause for complaint you should in the first instance contact the Customer Service & Compliance Manager of The Company at the address on the information page. Within 5 working days we will either deal with the complaint or advise you in writing the action we are taking and the time scale within which we will deal with the matter. The maximum time you will have to wait is eight weeks. If you are still not satisfied you may at any time contact the Managing Director of The Company who will consider the complaint. You may at any time contact the Insurer/Delegated Authority Holder direct if the matter is not resolved to your satisfaction. The appropriate address and telephone number is set out in the policy documentation.

Information relating to your insurance is added to the MID, which is managed by the Motor Insurers Bureau (MIB). Tempcover uses its best endeavours to submit
your policy and vehicle information as soon as our systems allow, and as a minimum, within the timescales required by the MID. The MID and the data stored on
it may be used by certain statutory and/or authorised bodies including the Police, the DVLA, the DVANI, the Insurance Fraud Bureau and other bodies permitted
by law for purposes not limited to but including:
- Electronic Licensing
- Continuous Insurance Enforcement;
- Law enforcement (prevention, detection, apprehension and or prosecution of offenders)
- The provision of government services and or other services aimed at reducing the level and incidence of uninsured driving.
If you are involved in a road traffic accident (either in the UK, the EEA or certain other territories), insurers and or the MIB may search the MID to obtain relevant information.
Persons (including his or her appointed representatives) pursuing a claim in respect of a road traffic accident (including citizens of other countries) may also obtain relevant information which is held on the MID.
It is vital that the MID holds your correct registration number. If it is incorrectly shown on the MID you are at risk of having your vehicle seized by the Police. You can check that your correct registration number details are shown on the MID at www.askmid.com.
