Insurers pass information to the Claims and Underwriting Exchange Register (CUE), run by Insurance Database Services Ltd (IDS Ltd) and the Motor Insurance Anti-Fraud and Theft Register (MIAFTR), run by the Association of British Insurers (ABI). The aim is to help them to check information provided and also to prevent fraudulent claims. When we deal with your request for insurance, we or your Insurers may search these registers.
Under the conditions of your policy, you must tell us about any incident (such as an accident or theft) which may or may not give rise to a claim. When you tell us about an incident, we or your Insurers will pass information relating to it to the registers.
Your policy details will be added to the Motor Insurance Database (MID), run by the Motor Insurers' Information Centre (MIIC). MID data may be used by the DVLA and DVLNI for the purpose of Electronic Vehicle Licensing and by the Police for the purposes of establishing whether a driver's use of the vehicle is likely to be covered by a motor insurance policy and/or for preventing and detecting crime. If you are involved in an accident, other UK insurers, the Motor Insurers' Bureau or the MIIC may search the MID to obtain information that is relevant to your policy. Persons pursuing a claim in respect of a road traffic accident (including citizens of other countries) may also obtain relevant information which is held on the MID.
You can find out more from your insurer, or at www.miic.org.uk. You should show this notice to anyone insured to drive the vehicle covered under your policy.
