With the progression of the coronavirus (COVID-19) and in light of the ongoing measures announced by the government, we wanted to let you know about the steps that BBi is taking to ensure we can continue to service and support our clients as best as we can during this time.
As the situation develops, we’ll be following government guidelines on homeworking and self-isolation, and will be operating at a reduced capacity. This could mean an increase in call waiting times or a short delay in responding to emails. Please bear with us and we will respond to you as soon as we can.
In the circumstances, and where it is possible, please could you communicate with us by email which will enable us to deal with your correspondence promptly. Thank you for your cooperation.
From all at the BBi Group we wish you and your family well.
Berns Brett Ltd is committed to respecting and protecting your privacy and would like you to feel safe when you give us your personal details. We will always clearly identify ourselves in correspondence and on our website.
Our principal business is to provide advice and arrange transactions on behalf of clients in relation to life & pensions and general insurance products. To provide you with relevant information, respond to your requests we sometimes request that you provide us with information about yourself.
This Privacy Notice will inform you of the information we gather and how it is used. Berns Brett Ltd maintains the same privacy practices with respect to data that is collected off-line and on-line and this notice also covers both those methods of data collection and use. Berns Brett Ltd complies with EU General Data Protection Directive (GDPR) for the collection, use, and retention of all personal data.
In general, you may visit our website without identifying yourself or revealing any personal information. Berns Brett Ltd collects domain information from your visit to customise and improve your experience on our website.
This website may collect certain information from your visit, including the date and time of your access, the pages you have accessed, the name of the Internet Service Provider and the Internet Protocol (IP) address by which you are accessing the Internet, and the Internet address from which you linked to our site, if applicable. We use this information to better understand how our website is being used so that we can improve its performance.

When we collect information about you, we intend to tell you why we are asking for the information. You will have the option of not providing the information, in which case you may still be able to access other parts of this website, although you may not be able to access certain services. In certain areas of our website, we may, where appropriate, enable you to ‘opt in’ to certain uses of your information e.g. personal data and direct marketing. Data will not be held for longer than is necessary, credit card transactions will be held for the duration of the transaction and general client details will be held while you are a customer in line with the Data Protection Act 2018 and required regulatory period thereafter.
The information we collect about you or your computer is used to run the website, respond to your requests or process any transactions you have requested. It may also be used to verify your identity, send you information or contact you in relation to an Berns Brett Ltd product or service that you are using or that we believe may be of interest to you after you have chosen to ‘Opt in’.

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.
The information we collect may be used, stored and processed in the Europe, India, UAE, or in any other country in which Berns Brett Ltd does business, as well as where 3rd party websites are hosted, such as USA. By providing the information via the website, you are consenting to the transfer of the information outside of your country to any country (including countries which may not have adequate levels of protection).
Berns Brett Ltd’s intent is to strictly protect the security of your personal information; honour your choice for its intended use; and carefully protect your data from loss, misuse, unauthorised access or disclosure, alteration or destruction. We have taken appropriate steps to safeguard and secure information we collect online, including the use of encryption when collecting or transferring sensitive data such as credit card information.
However, you should always take into consideration that the internet is an open forum and that data may flow across networks with little or no security measures, and therefore such information may be accessed by people other than those you intended to access it.
