Credit Reference Procedures
In considering your application we or our financiers will search your record at credit reference agencies. They will add to your record details of our searches and this will be seen by other organisations that make searches. Searches will also be made in respect of directors and partners of firms applying for credit. Information held about you by the credit reference agencies may already be linked to records relating to other people with whom you have a financial association. In connection with your application you may be treated as financially linked with them and assessed with reference to any such associated records.
If you are a joint applicant or if you have told us of some financial association with another person, you are declaring that you are entitled to:
• disclose information about you, the joint applicant and anyone referred to by you;
• authorise us to search, link or record information at credit reference agencies about you and anyone else referred to by you.
It is important that you give us accurate information. We or our financiers will check your details with fraud prevention agencies and if you give us false or inaccurate information and we suspect fraud, we will record this. These records will be shared with other organisations and used by us and them to assist in making decisions about credit and credit related services and trace debtors, recover debts and prevent money laundering and fraud. Fraud prevention agency records will also be shared with other organisations to help make decisions on motor and credit proposals, for you and members of your household.
Unless we have your prior consent, we shall not sell, rent, trade or share any personal information which we hold except in situations such as;
• where we are required to do so by law or in connection with legal proceedings;
• we may disclose personal information to our legal, accounting, marketing or other professional advisers, our website hosts and our courier, postal or transport providers, trades people and insurers (names and addresses only in the latter case);
• credit reference agencies and other persons from whom we require to take references about you prior to letting;
• we transmit credit/debit card information to third parties to the appropriate credit card company when we process payment for sales;
• providers of direct marketing services
• All marketing messages sent to you by us will contain an UNSUBSCRIBE link to allow you to quickly opt-out.
