Dealing with other people
At your convenience Stonebridge may accept instructions from you or at your request from your spouse or partner on the management of your policy. If you would like to nominate anyone else to deal with your policy for you on a regular basis, please let Stonebridge know. In very exceptional circumstances we may also deal with other people who call on your behalf without such nomination (e.g. where you are incapacitated in some way).
Stonebridge may record telephone calls for training and quality checking purposes.
Stonebridge, as operator of this Site, takes security of your data very seriously. Whenever you fill in your details on one of the quote pages, it is automatically protected using Secure Socket Layer (SSL) between your computer and ours. SSL works in the following ways:
- it greatly reduces the risk of impersonation - you can tell that you are using a genuine SSL site by the padlock symbol at the bottom of the screen. Clicking on the padlock will reveal our Registration Certificate that is issued by Comodo, a leading Internet security company.
- it encrypts data - as soon as your computer has recognised our computer they encrypt all information that is passed between them. Data encryption means that no-one else can read or change your information as it travels over the Internet.
- it prevents scrambling - SSL uses a Message Authentication Code (MAC) to prevent anyone tampering with our Internet Site. Your computer will always check this code before it takes a message from us. This means that if anyone tried to interfere with a message, your computer would not recognise the code and would alert you.
Although Stonebridge shall take measures to protect the security of your data we cannot guarantee the security of your personal information when processed through the Site and the Internet. Furthermore we cannot accept liability for loss or theft of your personal details when processed on the Site and, or through the Internet.
