Disclosure to business partners, intermediaries and group policy holders

When you buy a policy arranged by one of our business partners or intermediaries, or if you’re a third party beneficiary under a group policy, you consent to us providing all of your personal information to that business partner, intermediary or group policy holder, which may include sensitive information and claim information. That business partner, intermediary or group policy holder may also provide us with personal information.
