5.12 When accepting any payment or other settlement for a claim from Us under the Terms of this Data Guarantee, You irrevocably transfer to Us any and all rights to pursue compensation or other value from the persons or organisations You purchased the Designated Vehicle from. You agree to provide Us with any and all evidence necessary for Us to reasonably pursue that claim.
5.13 Any claim for Loss under the Data Guarantee in respect of a vehicle being registered overseas, or any event which occurred prior to first registration in mainland Britain, shall be considered null and void. This includes any claim for the Designated Vehicle being previously registered outside of Great Britain.
5.14 Any claim for a Designated Vehicle registered post-1980 where the VIN is anything other than 17 alphanumeric figures, shall be considered null and void.

For example the Designated Vehicle had been recorded as an insurance write-off but had not been reported as such to the MIAFTR database at the time of the Data Check being undertaken.
5.16 Any claim for Loss where the Designated Vehicle has ever been subject to a plate change or plate transfer, shall be considered null and void.
