Your duty of disclosure
Your insurance is based upon the information provided to the insurance company and you must ensure that all such information is complete and accurate, and that any facts that may influence the insurer’s decision to accept and pay a valid claim are disclosed.
Failure to disclose material information may invalidate your insurance and could mean that part, or all, of a claim may not be paid.
How to cancel
If this policy doesn't meet your needs you have 14 days from receipt of documents in which to cancel it. We will return your premium in full provided you have not made a claim or do not intend to do so. Please refer to your policy summary or your policy document for further details.
If you wish to cancel outside this period you may not receive a pro rata refund of premium for the term of the insurance remaining. We may also keep an amount that reflects our administrative costs of arranging and cancelling the insurance.
Fees and charges
If you wish to cancel your policy after the first 14 days, you can do so by informing us in writing or emailing us by visiting our website www.ipsdirect.com No refunds will be provided for premiums less than £75.00 plus IPT.
If any changes are required or if the policy is cancelled mid-term after 14 days there will be a charge of £25.00. Copies of the Insurance Certificates will be charged at £25.00 each. We must have your request in writing for any changes or copies required.

Protecting your information
All personal information about you will be treated as private and confidential (even when you are no longer a customer), except where the disclosure is made at your request or with your consent in relation to administering your insurance, and except where law requires us. The FSA may ask us to provide it with access to our customer records in order that it may carry out a review of our activities.
Some or all of the information you supply to us in connection with your insurance proposal may be passed to other insurance companies for underwriting and claims purposes. Under the Data Protection Act 1998 you have a right of access to see personal information about you that is held in our records, whether electronically or manually. If you have any queries, please write to the managing director at the above address.
Protecting your money
Prior to your premium being forwarded to the insurer, and for your protection, we hold your money as an agent of the insurer (in which case your insurance is treated as being paid for). We may need to transfer your money to another intermediary in some cases. However your money will be protected at all times because of our requirements under the FSA rules. We also reserve the right to retain interest earned on this account.
By accepting these Terms of Insurance Business you are giving your consent for us to operate in this way.
We are covered by the Financial Services Compensation Scheme. You may be entitled to compensation from the scheme if we cannot meet our obligations. This depends on the type of business and the circumstances of the claim. Insurance advising and arranging is covered for 100% of the first £2,000 and 90% of the remainder of the claim, without any upper limit. For compulsory classes of insurance, insurance advising and arranging is covered for 100% of the claim, without any upper limit. Further information about compensation scheme arrangements is available from the FSCS on 020 7892 7300 or by visiting www.fscs.org.uk
