We do not collect any personal information from visitors to the public areas of our website.

We collect this information for statistical review only and it cannot be used to identify an individual user.
If you decide to apply for a policy or membership online or register to use the members' servicing area of the site, we'll collect personal information about you as you enter it into the requested fields. (Please note that we have the ability to retain your contact details should you input them on our website, even if you do not complete your application by clicking submit.

The ways in which we will use your data collected during the course of your policy are outlined in the Data Protection Notice contained within the Policy Terms & Conditions - we recommend you read these carefully; they are available online and will be sent to you in your Welcome Pack and at renewal.
In addition to the above, we will collect information such as the IP address from which attempted logons to the members' servicing area are made and details about failed logon attempts for the purpose of possible investigation into misuse or abuse of the website.
CPP uses web analytics software to show which pages on this website are visited most frequently and how long visitors spend on this website.
This software uses a cookie to track the number of unique users of this website. It basically tells CPP whether the website has a small number of regular visitors or a large number of infrequent visitors. None of the information can be traced to an individual – CPP do not know who you are as a unique user, merely that there are a certain number of people using this website. The cookie only relates to what goes on in this website and the information cannot be used for marketing on an individual basis.
If you do not wish to accept cookies on to your machine you can disable them by adjusting the settings on your browser. However this will affect the functionality of the websites you visit.
We take data security very seriously and go to great lengths to ensure your information is protected against unauthorised use of any kind. We have appropriate measures in place to safeguard the data we hold. In early 2009, the UK achieved compliance with the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS), demonstrating how we effectively protect our data when we process, store and transmit this information on behalf of our customers and business partners.
We are continually reviewing and updating our security procedures as new technologies become available. All areas of this website where personal information is collected are secure and will display the 'padlock' symbol for reassurance. Where information is transferred it shall be encrypted using the latest encryption technology commercially available.
Should your logon details (for the members' servicing area) be entered incorrectly on three occasions, your online account will be locked, although your policy can still be accessed by telephoning customer services. This is to protect your on-line account from misuse. Your account will also 'timeout' after 15 minutes during which no activity is recorded. This will reduce the risk of someone using your account without permission if you have forgotten to logout. If you need to reset your online account details for whatever reason, you can request help and guidance online or by phoning customer services.
Your activation codes, passwords and pass phrase questions/answers should be treated in the same way as you would treat you bank and credit card PIN numbers. Do not give your online account details to anyone not authorised to use your online account. We will never request that you disclose this information at any time other than when you use this website.
Remember that you have a right to see all the personal information we hold about you. Details of how you can request a copy of all the personal information that we hold on file are shown in each of the product Terms & Conditions. Please note that there may be a separate administration charge for this service.
