9. Automated Decision Making
9.1. Certain processing activities may involve the use of automated (computer based) decision making; for example; before we can arrange an insurance product or service for you we must obtain a quotation from an Insurer’s Rating Engine which calculates the insurance risks based on the information that you have supplied. This will be used to determine if the Insurer can provide you with a policy and to calculate the premium you will have to pay to arrange cover with them.
9.2. The results of these automated decision-making processes will limit the products and services we may be able to provide you. If you do not agree with the result, you have the right to request human intervention to allow you to express your point of view and contest the decision.
