We are authorised and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority. We are members of the Consumer Credit Association, our trade body. 

This explains how and why we acquire and use your personal information in accordance with Regulation (EU) 2016/679, the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

We take your privacy seriously. Processing of your data is necessary for entering into, and the performance of, a contract with us. We will only ask for relevant information and use it to set up and manage your account.

 

We collect information about you:

  • as part of your loan application and during the term of any agreement.
  • from you and from searches of Credit Reference Agencies (CRAs) and Fraud Prevention Agencies (FPAs) of their records relating to you and other people with whom you are linked financially, from public records, e.g. the electoral roll.
  • this includes your name, address, date of birth, contact details, marital status, employment information, credit record, bank details, income & expenditure and records of your account.

 

We use your information to:

  • make credit decisions about you, members of your household or others to whom you are linked financially.
  • communicate with you by telephone, email, SMS, post and all forms of social media for both debt collection & promotional purposes.
  • manage your account, process payments, debt collection & tracing.
  • prevent fraud and money laundering.
  • report to CRAs and FPAs.
  • report to our regulator, the Financial Conduct Authority, where we are required to do so.

 

The lawful basis for processing your data is Contract (for assessing creditworthiness and managing loans) and Legal (for FCA compliance) 

This is to comply with our legal and regulatory obligations and fulfil our legitimate interests of promoting responsible lending.  If you do not provide us with your information, we will not be able to lend to you. 

We may share your information with:

  • third parties to which we transfer, charge or assign your agreement or which manage your loan or provide services for us
  • law enforcement agencies or regulatory bodies where we are required to do so by law
  • CRAs and FPAs to which we may report positive, delinquent and default data about your account(s) on a regular (minimum monthly) basis. This information may be supplied to other organisations which search your credit record.

 

When CRAs receive a search from us they place a search “footprint” on your credit file whether or not the application proceeds. Records remain on file with CRAs and FPAs for 6 years after they are closed, whether settled by you or defaulted.   

More information about CRAs and how they use personal information is available at http://www.experian.co.uk/crain/index.html or you can contact the agency we use below:

We store your information:

  • within the European Economic Area (EEA)
  • we may transfer data outside the EEA but will ensure that before we do so, there is adequate protection in place to ensure the security of your data.

 

We keep your information:

  • for as long as it is needed to manage your account and for a maximum of six years unless a longer period is required by law.

 

You have the right to:

  • to be informed, access and object to the information we hold about you
  • ask us to make any changes to your information to make sure it is accurate and up to date

Agreement

I agree to the terms of this Privacy Notice and acknowledge that as part of my loan application the lender may undertake searches of my records with Credit Reference Agencies and Fraud Prevention Agencies and that information regarding my loan account including positive, delinquent and default data will be reported to those agencies and may be accessed by other organisations which search my records.
