This policy together with our Terms of Use sets out the basis on which we will process any personal information which we collect from you, or which you provide to us.

For the purpose of data protection legislation, the data controller is Pioneer Underwriting Ltd (a company registered in England and Wales under number 07529401) whose registered office is at 7 Bishopsgate, London EC2N 3AR.

Information that we may collect from you

We collect non-personally-identifying information relating to your use of the website to enable us to better understand how visitors use the website. Examples of such information include the time and date of each visitor request, the site which referred you to our website, language preference and browser type. We may also collect non-personally-identifying information relating to the use of software applications such as computer or device type and the version of underlying operating system and software being used. From time to time, we may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, for example by publishing a report on trends in the usage of our website.

We also collect potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses. We do not, however, use this information to identify any visitor. We do not disclose such information, other than as described under "Use and Disclosure of Information" below.

When using the website, you are not required to provide us with any personally-identifying information. Some visitors to our website, however, interact with us in ways which require us to collect personally-identifying information. Examples include if you submit your personal details to us via the "Contact us" section of the website, if you request marketing material or our latest report and accounts.

The type and amount of information which we collect depends on the nature of the interaction. In each case, we collect information only to the extent necessary to fulfil the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with us. We do not disclose personally-identifying information except as described below. All visitors are of course entitled to refuse to supply personally-identifying information, it being understood that any such refusal may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.

Use and disclosure of information

We will only disclose potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to our employees, contractors and members of our group that:

(a) need to know that information in order to process it on our behalf for the purpose for which it was obtained, or to provide services available at our websites; and
(b) have agreed not to disclose it to others.

For the purpose of this Privacy policy, Pioneer means Pioneer Underwriting Holdings Limited and its subsidiaries, in each case as defined in section 1159 of the UK Companies Act 2006.

Certain employees and contractors may be located outside your home country and indeed outside the European Economic Area (EEA). By submitting your personal information to us, you agree that we may legitimately transfer such information outside your home country and, if necessary, outside the EEA. Where this is the case, we will ensure an adequate level of protection is in place in respect of such information.

We will not sell or supply potentially personally-identifying or personally-identifying information to any third party. Except for those of our employees and contractors, we disclose personal information only when required to do so by law, or when we believe in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect our property or rights or those of any third parties or members of the public.

If you have opted to receive marketing information from us, we may occasionally send you an email to inform you about new features of the website, seek your feedback or update you on developments within Pioneer or our respective products and services. You may opt out of receiving such marketing material at any time by notifying us in writing – please see contact details below.


We maintain appropriate security standards and procedures with a view to preventing unauthorised access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information. We use leading technologies such as (but not limited to) data encryption, fire walls and server authentication to protect the security of your personally-identifying information.
