You are under no obligation to provide any such information. However, if you should choose to withhold requested information, we may not be able to provide you with certain services.
(b) Vehicle Insurance
The Service, as it relates to insurance, allows you to search and compare insurance products from different insurance providers. You will need to answer a number of questions on the Site in order to compare or obtain a quote for any insurance product. These questions are designed to ensure that we and all relevant insurance providers have all the information necessary to provide you with appropriate and timely information relating to the products in which you are interested. The level of cover and the amount you will pay will be determined by the answers you provide to these questions. It is therefore very important that you answer all of the questions truthfully, completely and accurately and that you disclose all relevant facts. Failure to do so could invalidate the insurance product you purchase meaning you have no insurance cover. If your insurance product is invalid, claims may not be paid and you could be responsible for any third party costs if any event occurs where you would otherwise have been covered by the insurance product.
In order to apply for an insurance product, you must contact the relevant insurance provider. We will give you a direct link to their site and/or a dedicated telephone number along with any identification needed to access your details.
Before you apply for any insurance product, it is very important that you check all of the information held by the insurance provider about you to ensure it is true, correct, complete and accurate, that it is not misleading and that you have disclosed all relevant facts. It is your responsibility to identify and correct any mistakes or errors in the information held by the insurance provider about you before you apply for any product. Failure to correct any mistakes or errors in the information held by the insurance provider about you or a failure to disclose all relevant facts could invalidate your chosen insurance product.
The information you provide may be used to carry out certain credit checks through licensed credit-referencing agencies. This is used as part of the underwriting process for some of the insurance providers and a record of this search will be made although this will not adversely affect your credit profile.
Some insurance providers may pass loyalty scheme data to their insurance underwriters in order to assess and rate your cover and determine your premiums.
If you are in any doubt as to whether any information is relevant or required to be disclosed or that something may be incorrect you should disclose it to your proposed insurance provider before you apply for the insurance product. If you do not provide all such information or if you fail to tell your proposed insurance provider about any circumstances likely to influence their assessment of the risks involved, your proposed insurance provider may be able to treat your insurance policy as invalid.
Most insurance providers make certain assumptions about you. These will be different to any assumptions made by us about you. It is your responsibility to check the assumptions made by insurance providers as they form part of your contract with your selected insurance provider. If any assumption made by an insurance provider is incorrect, you must inform the insurance provider before you apply for any insurance product. Failure to do so could invalidate the insurance product.
You agree that we may use your data to send you renewal quotes as a reminder when your policy is due to expire and to highlight how we could continue saving you financial. This involves reusing the data you previously supplied to us and some providers may carry out soft credit checks as part of this process. These searches will be visible on your credit file, but will be clearly noted as being for quotation purposes and they will not affect your chances of obtaining credit in the future.
It is very important and your responsibility to check all the information about you is true, correct, complete and accurate as incorrect information could invalidate your policy or lead to a claim being declined.
It is very important before you apply for any insurance product that you carefully read the terms and conditions of the product, the insurance provider’s terms and conditions and any other documentation that applies to the insurance product. You must familiarise yourself with all the details of the insurance product, for example, the restrictions, exclusions, conditions and obligations which apply to the insurance product. It is your responsibility to ensure that the insurance product matches your requirements and that you agree to the terms and conditions of the insurance product before you apply for it. We accept no responsibility or liability whatsoever for any loss or damage you may suffer or incur in the event that any insurance product you apply for does not meet your requirements or is not suitable for you.
You should also make any other person named on the application aware of the ways in which information on them may be used.
A consumer has the right to withdraw from an insurance policy (as defined under SI No 853 of 2004) within 14 days of the start date of the policy (except in the case of travel policies whose operative period is for one month or less) without penalty and without giving any reason. This is known as the cooling off period. For motor insurance the insurance certificate and disc must be received by the Insurance Company before the policy can be cancelled. Please note that the policy set up charge is non-refundable if you choose to withdraw from the policy within the cooling off period.
(c) Vehicle Finance

You will need to answer a number of questions on the Site in order to compare financial products. These questions are designed to ensure that we and all relevant lenders have all the information necessary to provide you with appropriate and timely information relating to the products in which you are interested. It is very important that you answer all of the questions truthfully, completely and accurately and that you disclose all relevant facts. In order to apply for a financial product, you must contact the relevant lender directly.

It is your responsibility to identify and correct any mistakes or errors in the information held by the lenders about you before you apply for any financial product.
If you are in any doubt as to whether any information is relevant or required to be disclosed or that something may be incorrect you should disclose it to your proposed lender before you apply for the financial product.
pIt is very important before you apply for any financial product that you carefully read the terms and conditions of the product, the lenders terms and conditions and any other documentation that applies to the product. You must familiarise yourself with all the details of the product, for example, the interest rate, any early redemption charges, restrictions, exclusions, conditions and obligations which apply to the product. It is your responsibility to ensure that the product matches your requirements and that you agree to the terms and conditions of the product before you apply for it. We accept no responsibility or liability whatsoever for any loss or damage you may suffer or incur in the event that any product you apply for does not meet your requirements or is not suitable for you.
Under the Consumer Credit Act, consumers have a statutory right to a cooling off period of 10 days in respect of any consumer credit arrangement being entered into. Within this time period, a consumer has the right to reconsider a credit agreement within 10 days and to cancel it in writing without obligation. If you do not avail of this waiver within the 10 days, then the agreement comes into full effect.
