|Do we record calls and emails?||Yes|
|Who has access to your information?||
|Can we see your banking transactional data?||
Full ApplicationIf you agree to this yes, but it is not a requisite for getting a loan with us. We may access your Transaction History.
We request and register to view up to 90 days of bank statements to assess your credit worthiness and make an informed decision as to whether the loan you seek is affordable.
Thereafter refreshed data can be used to assist in account reviews and assessing instalments.

|What data do the credit reference agencies use?||
Full Application OnlyWhere you take financial services from us we may also make periodic searches at CRAs to manage your account with us.
To do this, we will supply your personal information to CRAs and they will give us information about you. This will include information from your credit application and about your financial situation and financial history. CRAs will supply to us both public (including the electoral register) and shared credit, financial situation and financial history information and fraud prevention information.

We will continue to exchange information about you with CRAs while you have a relationship with us. We will also inform the CRAs about your settled accounts. If you borrow and do not repay in full and on time, CRAs will record the outstanding debt. This information may be supplied to other organisations by 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.
If you are making a joint application, or tell us that you have a spouse or financial associate, we will link your records together, so you should make sure you discuss this with them, and share with them this information, before lodging the application. CRAs will 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.
The identities of the CRAs, their role also as fraud prevention agencies, the data they hold, the ways in which they use and share personal information, data retention periods and your data protection rights with the CRAs are explained in more detail at https://www.equifax.co.uk/crain.
