Why your policy documents are password protected
As of 25th May 2018, new Data Protection laws require all documents containing personal or sensitive information to be password encrypted.
For this reason, all your policy documents sent to you will be password protected.
We understand this causes an extra step for you receiving your documents, but we hope you understand the benefits of keeping your information secure.
