Fraud Prevention, Detection and Claims History

Insurers pass information to the Claims Underwriting Exchange register, run by Insurance Database Services Ltd (IDS Ltd). The aim is to help us check information provided and also to prevent fraudulent claims. We may at any time search the register including when we deal with your request for insurance. Under the conditions of your policy you must tell us about an incident (such as a fire or a theft) which may or may not give rise to a claim. When you tell us about an incident we will pass information relating to it to the database. We can supply more information on the database if you request it. You should show this notice to anyone who has an interest in property insured under this policy.

Allianz Insurance plc may seek information from other insurers and information agencies to check the information you may have supplied and Allianz Insurance plc may provide the information you have supplied to other insurers for the same purpose.

If false or inaccurate information is provided and fraud is identified, details will be passed to fraud prevention agencies.

Law enforcement agencies may access and use this information.

We and other organisations may also access and use this information to prevent fraud and money laundering, for example, when:

  • Checking details on applications for credit and credit related or other facilities
  • Managing credit and credit related accounts or facilities
  • Recovering debt
  • Checking details on proposals and claims for all types of insurance
  • Checking details of job applicants and employees
