About our site
Our site enables people to request a quote or information for the products or services shown or selected on this site (the “Product”).
The services that our site provides is to connect people who are looking to purchase the Products with relevant providers of the Products (“Service Providers”).
How our site works
If you’d like to request and receive quotes or information for the Products (“Quotes”), please complete and submit our webform.
Once we’ve received your request, we’ll connect you with one or more relevant Service Providers. We’ll tell the Service Providers who you are, and your Product requirements, and they’ll then contact you directly with your requested Quotes or product information
We have a really clear consent statement as displayed on all web forms. This statement sets out the Service Providers that will contact you.
We only work with Service Providers once a legal contract in place. This is to ensure that they respect your data and rights by keeping your data secure and confidential, limiting their use of your data (i.e. to providing you with the requested Quotes), and not sharing your data with anyone else.

We are registered as a controller with the UK Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) under registration number ZA070597. You can confirm our registration here: www.ico.org.uk
What we don’t do with your data
- We don’t share it with anyone else (other than the companies listed on the web form)
- We don’t use it for any purpose (including retargeting, commingling across multiple advertisers’ campaigns or allowing piggybacking or redirecting with tags), except on an aggregate and anonymous basis, and only to assess the performance and effectiveness of our advertising campaigns.
- We don’t use it to build, append to, edit, influence or augment user profiles, including profiles associated with any mobile device identifier or other unique identifiers that identify any particular user, browser, computer or device.
- We don’t transfer it (including any anonymous, aggregate or derived data) to any advertising network, advert exchange, data broker, or other advertising or monetisation-related service.
What data we collect, and how
If you complete our webform in order to request Quotes or product information, it will ask you for your contact details, such as list below,
- Your name,
- email address,
- telephone number,
- postal address,
- and/or postal code.
Our webform will also ask for information regarding your product requirements (where relevant).
We may sporadically change our webforms, as a result of this they may ask you for other information. We will always make it clear in the webform what information we’re requesting, and we only request information that is relevant to your request, and the service that we’re providing.
We also store and share Internet Protocol (IP) addresses, as explained below. Every computer or device has an IP address – a unique number – which enables it to communicate with other computers and devices over the Internet.
We may monitor and/or record these calls for the purposes of quality control and staff training. Also, occasionally, we may need to provide Service Providers with limited access to such recordings in order to resolve disputes.
How we use your data
Service Providers we share your information with
DML Debt Solutions Ltd, Registered Office: 14 Greenoak Drive, Sale, England, M33 3QA. Registered in England and Wales. Registered number: 12626437.
We use your data (described above) in the following ways.
To connect you with releveant service providers
As explained above, if you submit our webform, we’ll pass your request to one or more relevant Service Providers (named on the consent statement). We will do this in a secure way. For example, using HTTP Secure (HTTPS), which means the data is encrypted. The Service Providers then contact you directly with your quotes. They may contact you by telephone, text/SMS or email.
Before we pass your request to any Service Providers, our service may involve an element of automated decision-making. Our technology platform may automatically assess your Product requirements and pass your request to such Service Providers that would like to receive requests for Quotes at the time your request is made.
We store IP addresses in order to stop unwanted traffic (i.e. spam) to our site. For example, if we become aware that spam is coming from a particular IP address (i.e. computer or location), we can block that IP address. From time to time, we also share IP addresses with Service Providers to enable Service Providers to verify that requests for Quotes have come from a particular country.
You will always be given an opportunity to opt out of such messages before we send them, and we will not send such messages if you have opted out.
Receiving data from service providers
From time to time, Service Providers may return data to us. They may do this if they have a query regarding a request for Quotes that we have sent to them in order to enable us to resolve the query. They may also return data to us, together with confirmation on whether or not a product has been purchased, in order to enable us to improve our marketing. We may also use such data to create custom and lookalike/similar audiences, as explained above.
Working with suppliers
We work with a number of suppliers, who process data on our behalf. These include, email service providers and telephone number validation services. We have appropriate contracts in place with such suppliers to ensure the protection and confidentiality of data.
