GDPR: What You Need To Know about the New Data Protection Regulation

General Data Protection Regulation or GDPR

The EU’s new General Data Protection Regulation or GDPR is an expansion and development of previous data protection law. At present the UK relies on the Data Protection Act 1998 but things have changed significantly since this time. The new legislation introduces harsher fines for non-compliance and data breaches, and it also gives people more rights to their personal data.

The GDPR is a way for the EU to make a simpler and clearer legal environment for businesses handling volumes of data. It will come fully into force from 25th May 2018. It is applicable to all EU member states, but the UK is also affected.

The UK actually passed its own data protection legislation in September 2017 and it implements the majority of the GDPR in the UK.

Does GDPR affect my Business?

All businesses that control and process data must abide by the GDPR legislation. Your business needs to have a data controller who states how and why personal data is used. Data controllers have full responsibility for ensuring all data processed is compliant with data protection law.

Almost every business will be impacted by GDPR. If your business is currently effected by the Data Protection Act, then the same will apply to the GDPR.

Personal data and sensitive personal data come under GDPR. It is relevant to the smallest start-ups and also the largest companies.

Accountability and Protection against Breaches

Companies affected by the GDPR will see themselves much more accountable for data breaches. Their handling of personal data and sensitive personal data has to be properly managed and stored. Companies may want to review their data protection policies. It may also be worthwhile considering data protection impact assessments and fully auditing record keeping within your business.

Data breaches are becoming increasingly common. Companies such as Equifax, T-Mobile and Yahoo experienced breaches within the last 12 months. Smaller companies also need to be vigilant. The GDPR states that “destruction, loss, alteration, unauthorised disclosure of, or access to” personal data must be reported to the country’s data protection regulator. In the UK we have the ICO and they require notification within 72 hours of an organisation finding out about a breach.

The ICO has prepared some information about the GDPR with more expected before the regulation comes into effect in May 2018. All professional business owners should ensure they have a good understanding and are prepared for the regulation before this tim

A guide to Professional Indemnity Insurance

What exactly is Professional Indemnity Insurance? And do you need it?

Quite simply Professional Indemnity Insurance is a type of Insurance to cover any individual or company that provides a service or advice for a fee. In other words, if you have certificated a piece of equipment as an Electrical contractor and then the equipment causes a loss to the client then this would be a Professional indemnity claim.

Another example would be if, as a professional, you give advice to a company and they follow that advice that causes them a loss then they would be able to make a claim on your Professional Indemnity Insurance too!

More businesses should have this cover

Less than 25% of UK businesses that really should have PI insurance cover actually do so, why is this? Basically it is because either they, or their current insurance providers, don’t understand it. They have more than likely not identified that such an exposure exists within the business and have therefore not catered for it fully.

This is where we can help with our over 30 year’s relevant Insurance industry experience. We can offer not only a free quotation but also specialist advice on how to fully to protect you and or your companies exposure thereby providing you with Professional Indemnity cover that fully suits your requirements.

Why choose Professional Indemnity Insurance Cover?

Why should you purchase this cover if you already have Public and Products Liability cover you may well ask? Well, Public Liability Insurance will basically provide cover for injury etc. to the Public. Products Liability will, in essence, pick up any loss or damage to a third party should a Product that you have supplied fail or be faulty. These will pick up the tangible asset damage but what about the financial loss arising from any advice that you have given? This is where PI (Professional Indemnity) becomes a must have cover.

Do you design something for a professional fee, such as an architect would? If you do, and then, for instance, a builder or manufacturer goes on to build or make the product to your specification, what happens if the item or build isn’t correct and then, as a result, causes a loss to a third party? This again would be a Professional Indemnity claim against you and your insurers which you need to make sure that you, as a responsible business, have got covered.

We can help you with your Insurance questions!

If you are unsure of your real world exposure then please do get in touch with our experts now and, even if only for peace of mind, let us advise you correctly so that you can make a fully informed decision regarding your insurance requirements.

Compare Landlord Insurance Quotes

Compare Landlord Insurance Quotes

Landlords Insurance is a different type of Insurance to standard Home Buildings and contents Insurance, standard Home Insurance policies do not cover many of the contingencies required by Landlords Insurance.

There are various specific unique insurance covers needed such as Property Owners Liability Insurance, this is cover for the Landlord or Property Owner. This will cover for injury to the general Public as part of the Landlords buildings Insurance. A common claim could be, for instance, where a loose roof tile comes off in a storm and hits either a third party person or third party’s property. In such a case it is then that Property Owners Liability Insurance, which is part of the covers JustQuoteMe Landlords Insurance provides, comes into its own.

How do you compare Landlords Insurance quotes and what does it cover?

First of all, compare the small print detail of the Landlords Insurance. Look at each individual section of the policy and compare your shortlisted policies side by side.

Another cover section that is unique to Landlords Insurance or Property Owners Insurance is that this type of Insurance cover helps with Loss Of Rent.

Quite often, during a major loss, the landlord or property owner can be left waiting to get repairs effected and will be in the hands of builders until the repair work is completed. It is one thing to rebuild the property, or repair property damage, but what about the loss of rental income during this period? Well this is where this cover section can prove to be invaluable for property owners and landlords. It means that any of our clients, with Landlords Insurance and Property Owners Insurance cover, can continue with their lives whilst the bricks and mortar are replaced!

And what about the all-important buildings sum insured amount you may ask? Well, what on earth do you, as a landlord seeking property owners insurance, set the sum insured to? Here is a bit of a tip regarding the buildings sum insured – it should be set for the cost of any potential rebuild and not the saleable value of the property!

Remember, a property in for instance London, may sell for ten times the value of a property in the North of the UK, but the rebuild cost is virtually the same. It is the same give or take the varying builders rates in different areas, so be careful when setting the building sum insured! Make sure that it covers just the rebuild cost. We would also always advise a contingency of, say 15%, on top of that figure for debris removal too. This is because the builders will have to clear the site before they can actually make a start and commence the rebuild!

Our Property Owners Insurance and Landlord Insurance Cover

Our unique Landlords Insurance can also accommodate ‘Landlords contents Insurance’. This is great if you provide, for instance, white goods or basic furniture which in the event of a total loss you would want repayment for. In this way, you can mitigate your risk as a property owner and this is another option we can incorporate for you.

Rent guarantee and Landlords legal expenses are another key area that a lot of providers forget to either advise on or can’t actually offer cover for. JustQuoteMe can offer both and, bear in mind, Rent Guarantee Insurance covers the Landlord for loss of rent subject to the tenant not paying the rent. This is known as an insured peril! If you have a large portfolio of property then this type of cover can prove to be invaluable. Finally, Landlords legal expenses covers you for legal disputes with Tenants etc. and assist both parties in, hopefully, coming to an amicable agreement.

Landlords and Property Owners Insurance cover can be a bit of a minefield but, with the right policy in place, you can rest easy with Just Quote Me!

Public Liability Insurance Claims

Public Liability Insurance Claims

Public Liability Insurance Claims

Lets first give an example of what Public Liability Insurance Claims are and what they were designed to cover people and businesses:

– If you have an accident or suffer from an injury to your body whilst on public property that was not your fault.

– If you are injured or fall ill during the course of employment then you may be able to claim against your existing or former employer.

The person responsible for the maintenance of public areas must ensure that they are as safe as possible for the public. Public Liability Insurance is a must so that they are able to compensate members of the public for any injury they sustain on the property caused by negligence. Any injury claim, for public liability compensation, would be made against the insurance policy.

How are such public liability compensation claims made?

To achieve a successful public liability compensation claim you need to prove that another person or company was responsible for any injuries that you have sustained as a result of negligence.

Many companies operate to achieve public liability insurance compensation for their clients on a ‘no win no fee’ basis. Many companies on the internet can pursue a claim for you on a ‘no win and no fee’ basis. This means that if your case is not won then you will not be out of pocket financially! This gives many people the confidence to make a claim where they may not have done so before through no fault of their own.

Let’s look at a public liability compensation claim:

The Royal Oak public house is in Fishguard. Here, an incident reminiscent of the famous scene where Grandad fell down a trap door into the cellar took place some time ago.

Mr Parkinson fell down into the pubs cellar after the cellar trap door was left open.  Mr Parkinson was on his way back from the Gents and, as he was returning back to his lady wife, fell through the open cellar trap door. He was left with injuries to his chest and had restricted movement in his arm apparently due to pain and weakness causing him great distress.

There was no warning sign erected or protective barrier erected to ensure that the public were safe.

He stated: “It was a hell of a shock” and “You don’t expect there to be a gaping hole in the floor without any warning signs or protective barrier” said Mr Parkinson at the time!” – Mr Parkinson’s solicitor stated that “It sounds like something out of a comedy sketch” and “this was no laughing matter”

His subsequent Public Liability insurance claim was won and he obtained £3,750 in compensation for his personal injuries.

What Insurance do Builders and Building Companies need?

Well to start with they need Builders Public Liability Insurance, Builders Employers Liability Insurance and then after these two core covers they can also add, Tools cover including overnight cover, Goods In Transit Insurance, or they can opt for full Contractors ALL Risks Cover to cover their tools and materials in trade whilst working on a project or job where they are responsible for the work in progress materials until the job is finished and signed off.  Then it becomes the responsibility of their customer to insure.

Many Builders either don’t insure this risk or are not fully aware of what this cover insures and if they haven’t been advised correctly, then they may not be correctly insured and if they are on a big job where a theft has occurred, the potential loss of materials and plant and equipment could be catastrophic.
