When you apply for a product or service you authorise us to check the following records about you and others (see below);

  1. Our own;
  2. Those at credit reference agencies (CRAs). When CRAs receive a search from us they will place a search footprint on your credit file that may be seen by other lenders. They supply to us both public (including the electoral register) and shared credit and fraud prevention information.
  3. Those at fraud prevention agencies (FPAs).

 

We will make checks such as; assessing this application for credit and we may also make periodic searches at CRAs and FPAs to manage your account with us. If you tell us that you have a spouse or financial associate, we will link your records together so you must be sure that you have their agreement to disclose information about them. CRAs also link your records together and these links will remain on your and their files until such time as you or your partner successfully files for a disassociation with the CRAs to break that link. Information on applications will be sent to CRAs and will be recorded by them. Where you borrow from us, we may give details of your accounts and how you manage it/them to CRAs. If you borrow and do not repay in full and on time, CRAs may record the outstanding debt. This information may be supplied to other organisations by CRAs and FPAs to perform similar checks and to trace your whereabouts and recover debts that you owe. Records remain on file for 6 years after they are closed, whether settled by you or defaulted. If false or inaccurate information is provided and fraud is identified, details will be passed to fraud prevention agencies. Law enforcement agencies may access and use this information. We and other organisations may also access and use this information to prevent fraud and money laundering, for example, when:
