In assessing your loan application we will make enquiries about you including searching records held by credit reference agencies and fraud prevention agencies. If you give us false or inaccurate information and we suspect fraud, we may record this. Law enforcement agencies may access and use this information. The credit reference and fraud prevention agencies will keep details of any searches. We may also use your credit scoring methods to assess your application and to verify your identity. In addition, whilst assessing your application, this may also be used for debt tracing, prevention of money laundering as well as the ongoing management of your account.
Information held about you by the credit reference agencies may already be linked to other addresses and records relating to another person, for example your spouse. For the purpose of your application you may be treated as financially linked and your application will be assessed with reference to any “associated” records. By signing the Loan Application Form you are confirming that you are entitled to disclose information about any joint applicant or “financial associate” for the purpose of this application.
