Sharing with others
If necessary we’ll share your information with other companies within the Legal & General group of companies, regulatory bodies, law enforcement agencies, future owners of our business, suppliers engaged by Legal & General to process data on its own behalf and when necessary to a reassurer.
If you make a claim we may share your information with other insurance companies to prevent fraudulent claims. We’ll also check your details with fraud prevention agencies and if false or inaccurate information is provided and fraud is detected then details will be passed to fraud prevention agencies. Law enforcement agencies may also access and use this information. Legal & General and 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 proposals and claims for all types of insurance;
- Checking details of job applicants and employees.
