Privacy Policy
Your Rights

Who we are

Wedinsure is a trading name of Genesis Choice Limited, (collectively referred to as “Wedinsure”, “we”, “us” and “our” in this Privacy Policy) that operate in the United Kingdom. 

What information do we collect?

When you visit the Wedinsure website to purchase a policy we collect some personal information about you that you input directly into the website.  This information includes personal details such as your names, address, email address, telephone number, date of birth, salutation, wedding dates, wedding venues and your marketing preferences.

How we use the information we collect about you?

We collect and process the information about you so that we can provide you with the products and services you request.  This includes:

  • meeting our contractual obligations to you;
  • issuing you with an insurance policy;
  • servicing your policy (including claims assistance, policy administration, payments and other transactions);
  • detecting, investigating and preventing activities which may be illegal or could result in your policy being cancelled or treated as if it never existed;
  • and, only if you agree, to contact you regarding other products and services that we think may be of interest to you.

If you purchase a product or service, your personal information may be shared with and processed by our associated companies, introducers, intermediaries, reinsurers, brokers and agencies for the purposes of administration, including third parties providing services to them.  In these circumstances, we have strict contractual terms in place, to make sure that your information remains safe and secure. 

If you provide information about anyone else, you confirm that they have agreed that you may give us their information for the reasons described in this privacy policy.

We will not share your information with anyone else unless you agree to this, or we are required to do so by our regulators (e.g. the Financial Conduct Authority) or other authorities.

We will need to keep and process your personal information while you are a customer of ours and after this time so that we can meet our regulatory obligations or to deal with any reasonable requests from our regulators and other authorities.
