Facebook We use cookies if you have a Facebook account, use the Facebook Services,  and visit our website and apps, or visit other websites and apps that use the Facebook Services (including the Like button or our advertising tools). This policy explains how we use cookies and the choices you have.

Cookies help us provide, and improve, our marketing communications – such as by personalising content, tailoring and measuring ads, and providing a better experience. While the Facebook cookies we use may change from time to time as Facebook improves and updates, they generally fall into the below categories of use:

We use cookies to help us show ads for our businesses and people who may be interested in the products or services.

We use cookies to allow us to provide insights about the people who use the Facebook Services, as well as, the people who interact with the our ads and websites.

What does this site specifically use cookies for?

Session cookies

Most of the cookies we use are session cookies, lasting only for the duration of your visit and are deleted when you close your browser. No personally-identifiable data is collected. These simply enable us to identify that the same person is moving from page to page.

We store and collect the following information via session cookies:

A unique ID to track your session from page to page, which is vitally important to enable us to keep you signed in whilst you service your accounts online and to keep your session open whilst you apply for new products.

An internal tracking cookie to allow the recording of source websites (referrers), specific campaign information and pay-per-click (PPC) campaign identifiers.

Persistent cookies

We also use certain cookies that are persistent, meaning that they last beyond your session enabling an enhanced user-experience when you return to the site.

This site uses Google Analytics (www.google.com/analytics) to allow us to track how popular our site is and to record visitor trends over time. Analytics uses a cookie to help track which pages are accessed. The cookie contains no personally-identifiable information, but it does use your computer’s IP address to determine where in the world you are accessing the site from, and to track your page visits within the site.

Additional information

From time to time, we may embed external content from third party websites (e.g. Facebook, YouTube) within our website. These websites may utilise cookies and the Privacy Policy that will apply to such third-party content will be published on the website of that third-party content provider.

Opting out of cookie usage

You can stop third party cookies (such as those we use for Google Analytics) being stored on your computer by blocking third party cookies from within your browser. Blocking these cookies will not impact your browsing experience.

You can also block all cookies through your browser – however, you may find that many areas of our site will no longer work so we would recommend against this.

For further information about managing and disabling cookies, you can refer to your browser’s help section or user guide. Alternatively, the Interactive Advertising Bureau has produced a guide (see www.allaboutcookies.org) which explains to users how cookies work and can be managed.

Email Security

Emails and any attachments are confidential and may contain legally privileged information. If you are not the intended recipient of an email message from us, please telephone or email us immediately, delete the message from your system and do not read, copy, distribute, disclose or otherwise use the email message and any attachments

Communication by email is not secure as messages can be intercepted and read by someone else. Therefore we strongly advise you not to email any information to us which if disclosed to unrelated third parties would be likely to cause you distress.

We will normally respond by email to requests that reach us via email in the first place, however, you must realise that there can be no guarantee of privacy. If you have any concerns then please make it clear that you wish us to respond in a more secure way and provide your postal address or telephone number for the purpose.

Any email including its content may be monitored and used by the firm for reasons of security and for monitoring internal compliance. Email monitoring/blocking software may also be used. Please be aware that you have a responsibility to ensure that any email you write or forward is within the bounds of the law.

Alan Boswell Group cannot guarantee that an email or any attachment is virus free or has not been intercepted and amended and you should perform your own virus checks.

GDPR and Marketing

We will also only share your data with those companies where we have a legal or regulatory obligation (e.g. the Police or Financial Conduct Authority). In addition, your data may be shared with companies to enable us to complete the undertaking of our business. These include:

  • if your business was introduced to us or is part of a scheme, we may share information with the introducer or scheme operator
  • with interested parties (e.g. mortgage companies, joint policy holders, leaseholders, named drivers)
  • with other companies within the Alan Boswell Group
