How we will process your request
If you wish to make a payment and authorise on-going payments, we will deduct the premium due on your plan and any future instalments in accordance with your plan payment frequency. If you have chosen to pay your premium in full, on an annual basis, the next payment will be taken from your card upon the next renewal of your plan in accordance with the terms of your plan. Please refer to your plan guide, other policy documentation and the ‘Important Information’ section for more information.
If you wish to make a one-off payment only, we will only take one payment using the details you have provided. We will not store your credit/debit card details. You will have to provide your payment details each time you wish to make future payments on-line.
You will be required to enter your CVV (card security code) if you are making a payment on the site. These details will be transmitted securely to Worldpay and will not be seen by any of our staff.
If you wish to only update your card details, we will not request your CVV number. However, we will hold your card details for the purpose of processing and verifying future payments. We may contact you nearer the time of future payments to obtain further details from you. If you have agreed a payment plan with us your card will be used to process future payments and other charges at renewal and as and when your premium falls due.
By continuing to use the site, you agree that your details will be processed in this way.
We will communicate with you in writing and if you have provided us with your email address, by email. We will record our communications with you, including transactions we have carried out for you, and information and documentation that we receive from you. We will retain information on our files for a period of not less than six years. Our records, unless shown to be wrong, will be evidence of your dealings with us.
Information regarding refunds, cooling off periods, and cancellations for Individual plan holders is available in your member handbook and policy documents.
Different terms apply to Group plans. If you are making a payment on the secure online payment system in connection with a Group plan, please refer to the terms of your Group plan for the specific terms that apply to them.
