We are Members of Brokers Ireland

Our principal business is to provide advice and arrange transactions on behalf of clients in relation to general insurance, life, pensions, savings and investments.

We operate on the basis of fair analysis of the market and we pay particular attention to identifying and recommending the product/s that best fulfil the specific needs of our customers.

Accordingly, the number of contracts and providers we share your data with must be sufficiently large to enable us as an intermediary acting on the customer’s behalf, to recommend a product that would be adequate to meet a client’s needs having regard to the client’s fact-find and product suitability assessment.

The number of providers that constitutes ‘sufficiently large’ will vary depending on the number of providers operating in the market for a particular product or service and their relative importance in and share of that market.  The extent of fair analysis must be such that could reasonably be expected of a professional conducting business, taking into account the accessibility of information and product placement to intermediaries and the cost of the search.

Also it is necessary for the purposes of the legitimate interest that we have, as a firm that is authorised and regulated by the Central Bank of Ireland, in the proper administration and correct operation of our firm.
There may also be circumstances where the legal basis for processing your personal data is consent (where we have sought it and it has been provided to us), in which case that consent may be withdrawn at any time.

We are committed to ensuring that the information we collect, and use is appropriate for this purpose and does not constitute an invasion of your privacy.

We will endeavour to keep your information accurate and up to date, and not keep it for longer than is necessary.

We will only provide those third parties with information that is necessary for them to perform the services and we take measures to protect your information. We may disclose information collected about you if required to do so by law or when necessary to protect the rights of IPM Draper Insurance and Financial Brokers or its employees.

If we wish to pass your sensitive personal data onto a third party we will only do so once we have obtained your explicit consent, unless we are legally required to do otherwise.
