Your new insurance company would have nothing to do with the old insurance company in any way, and this includes informaiton on how long the policy lasted. This is because it would be a conflict of interest with the new insurance company, as well as with the old one. Neither company will want to give out information about how they handled your particular case.
Since the whole aspect of the insurance business is handling their customers cases within the law, they have to abide by the privacy laws that govern the industry. You and their other customers are always held with extreme respect, and are protected. The rates and other details of your policy are kept confidential by the companies, for your protection, as well as theirs. They will not share this information with the public or with a new company in any way. You will be able to tell your new company how long you had insurance with your prior company on your own, if need be.
