Credit Reference Agencies (CRAs) 

We may carry out credit and identity checks in respect of you or your business. We may use Credit Reference Agencies and fraud prevention agencies to help us with this. 

We will share your personal information with CRAs and they will give us information about you. This data includes: 

• name, address and date of birth of you or your officers or members; 

• your credit application; 

• your financial situation and history; 

• fraud prevention information; and 

• public information, from sources such as the Electoral Register and Companies House. 

We use this data to confirm your identity, assess the accuracy of the information provided to us, as well as to manage our relationship, trace and recover debts and to help to detect financial crime. 


We will go on sharing your personal information with CRAs and fraud prevention agencies for as long as we are dealing with your case. 


Where we store and transfer your data 

The data that we collect from you may be transferred to, and stored at, a destination outside the European Economic Area (“EEA”). We will only send your data outside of the EEA to comply with a legal duty or work with our suppliers in providing products and services to you. If we do transfer your personal information outside the EEA to our suppliers, we will make sure that it is protected to the same extent as in the EEA. We will use one of these safeguards: 

  • • Transfer it to a non-EEA country where the European Commission has deemed that such country provides an adequate level of protection for personal data. 

  • • Put in place a specific contract approved by the European Commission with the recipient that means they must protect it to the same standards as the EEA. 

Data security 

We have put in place appropriate security measures to prevent your personal data from being accidentally lost, used or accessed in an unauthorised way, altered or disclosed. In addition, we limit access to your personal data to those employees, agents, contractors and other third parties who have an operational need to know. They will only process your personal data on our instructions and they are subject to a duty of confidentiality. 

We have put in place procedures to deal with any suspected personal data breach and will notify you and any applicable regulator of a breach where we are legally required to do so. 

Data retention 

We will only retain your personal data for as long as necessary to fulfil the purposes we collected it for, including for the purposes of satisfying any legal, accounting, or reporting requirements.

To determine the appropriate retention period for personal data, we consider the amount, nature, and sensitivity of the personal data, the potential risk of harm from unauthorised use or disclosure of your personal data, the purposes for which we process your personal data and whether we can achieve those purposes through other means, and the applicable legal requirements. 

By law we have to keep basic information about our appointments (including Contact, Identity, Financial and Transaction Data) for up to ten years after they cease being live appointments. 

Exercising your legal rights 

Under certain circumstances, you have rights under data protection laws in relation to your personal data. There may be legal or other official reasons why we need to keep or use your data. 

You have the right to: 

• get a copy of the personal information we hold about you; 

• question any information we have about you that you think is incorrect, so that we can take reasonable steps to check and correct it; 

• share your data with outside companies, as a digital file, so that you can keep and use it yourself, or give it to other organisations; 

• object to us keeping or using your personal data; 

• ask us to delete, remove or stop using your personal data if there is no need for us to keep it; 

  • • restrict the use of your data, so that it can only be used for certain things, such as legal claims or to exercise legal rights; and 

  • • withdraw consent at any time where we are relying on consent to process your personal data. However, this will not affect the lawfulness of any processing carried out before you withdraw your consent. If you withdraw your consent, we may not be able to provide certain products or services to you. We will advise you if this is the case at the time. 


If you wish to exercise any of the rights set out above, please contact us at 

No fee usually required 

You will not have to pay a fee to access your personal data (or to exercise any of the other rights). However, we may charge a reasonable fee if your request is clearly unfounded, repetitive or excessive. Alternatively, we could refuse to comply with your request in these circumstances. 

What we may need from you 

We may need to request specific information from you to help us confirm your identity and ensure your right to access your personal data (or to exercise any of your other rights). This is a security measure to ensure that personal data is not disclosed to any person who has no right to receive it. We may also contact you to ask you for further information in relation to your request to speed up our response. 


Time limit to respond 

We try to respond to all legitimate requests within one month. Occasionally it could take us longer than a month if your request is particularly complex or you have made a number of requests. In this case, we will notify you and keep you updated.
