Credit Reference Agencies
When you apply for credit with us we will make searches about you with credit reference agencies. We do this to make sure customers who apply for credit accounts are able to manage the level of credit offered and not committing fraud by providing false or inaccurate information.
In order to process your application we will supply your personal information to credit reference agencies (CRA’s) and they will give us information about you, such as your financial history. We do this to assess your creditworthiness and product suitability, check your identity, manage your account, trace, recover debts, and prevent criminal activity.
We will also continue to exchange information about you with the CRAs on an ongoing basis, including about your settled accounts and any debts not fully repaid on time. CRAs will share your information with other organisations.
The identities of the CRAs, and the ways in which they use and share personal information, are explained in more detail at:
Experian Credit Reference - Agency Information Notice
CallCredit Credit Reference - Agency Information Notice
Equifax Credit Reference - Agency Information Notice
We will use automated credit-scoring methods to assess your application and to confirm your identity. We will automatically check your credit history against our lending criteria and if you don’t meet our requirements you will be declined for credit. For more information see the CRAIN notices above. There is also an automated decision section below with further detail. Should you wish to object to the use of automated credit scoring, please contact the Data Protection Officer.
