Long story slightly shorter.

 

 

We had a other party fault accident last year, which is been sort of resolved, although I do have a complaint in with the Legal Ombudsman regarding this.

 

 

However for the past 3 weeks I am constantly being bombarded by calls from supposedly different companies all with a Manchester selection of phone numbers, all want to talk to me about last years accident.

 

 

Today I had enough so I questioned the company of the day, as with the others I give no information out and I confirm or deny nothing BUT this guy knows whre the accident happened, who was involved, the street, the other party's name and everything. He said my insurance company can legally sell on my details on this accident for TWO years. He also said we are due a payment between £2500-3000, I assume that's a pile of poo, although I'd love for one of you to confirm otherwise!

 

 

So to confirm my question - is the true, that they are selling my details on and is there anyway of stopping them?

Register a Data Protection Act complaint with the Insurers. They can only pass on your data to those involved in dealing with your policy and any claims you make, as well as databases such Motor Insurers Database.

 

You should write down full name/addresses of those companies calling you and you can ask your Insurers whether they passed them your data.


We could do with some help from you.

This happened to my OH after an accident last year - I understand there is a data base where these details are uploaded to - which is then accessible to quite a few companies - namely Claims Management Companies, other Insurers.

I imagine there's a little clause in the small print of your contract where you consent to its.
