Any other matters or information which might influence your Insurer to the acceptability or otherwise of your proposal for insurance or the renewal of it, must be disclosed at the earliest opportunity both before the insurance commences and during the period of the policy. If you do not tell us, then your insurance may not cover you properly or may not operate at all. If you are unsure about any matter you may contact us for guidance as to whether it should be disclosed or not
