Before you begin
During the application process, we will share the personal data provided in this form typically, in relation to each named contact, your personal and contact details along with your date of birth and job title, with selected Credit Reference Agencies for the purposes of verifying the identity of individuals referred to in the application form. The details of the agencies we use and their privacy policies can be found within our Privacy Notice on our website or via the link above. A record of this initial “soft search” will be kept on our file and will leave a non-detrimental footprint on the credit file of the relevant individuals, which will not be viewable by any other organisation. We do not base our decisions solely on this information, and so we may ask individuals to provide additional information if the electronic search is not successful. We may involve other trusted third parties in the processing of your personal data and where we do so we make this clear in our Privacy Notice.
