• Access Coarse Location
This is only used during the new claim report functionality and is only used to approximate your current location.
• Read Phone State
This allows the application to set your phone number for our claims department to contact you after you submit a new claim. If you like, you can supply a different contact number.

This allows the application to store data items on the device's SD card; this is used mainly as temporary storage to store pictures during new claim reporting.

Permission to your camera is only used during the new claim reporting portion of the application.
