Sharing your personal information
In processing this information to secure you the requested loan, mortgage, lease, investment or other facility we will need to share this information with selected lender partners or investors. In considering an application, our lender partners or investors may search records at credit reference agencies. If so, this will add to those records the details of the search made and this may be seen by other organisations that carry out such searches.
An association between joint applicants or between you and any named partner/spouse will be created at the credit reference agency. This will link your financial records, each of which will be taken into account in all future applications by either or both of you. If an association already exists then your application will be assessed with reference to these associated records. This situation will continue until one of you successfully files a disassociation at the credit reference agency.
Our company operates cloud-based systems. Your personal information may be transferred outside the UK and the European Economic Area. Whilst some countries already have adequate protections for personal information under applicable laws, in other countries steps will be necessary to ensure appropriate safeguards apply to maintain the same levels of protection as are needed under data protection laws in the UK.
Our external IT Support Provider may have access to sensitive information stored on our servers. They have access to our server, equipment and data exclusively for IT Support needs.
