    3. Each product and service provider will have a different approach to the provision of their quotes and we may not be able to make quotes available for all of their products. Where you have expressed an interest in a product restricted by a product or service provider, we may sometimes contact you to assist you further (provided that we or the provider continue to treat your data as confidential and comply with data protection legislation).
