We may also collect, use and share Aggregated Data such as statistical or demographic data for any purpose. Aggregated Data could be derived from your personal data but is not treated as personal data because this data will not directly or indirectly reveal your identity.

If we need to collect personal data by law, or under the terms of our contract, and you do not provide that data when asked, we may be unable to perform the contract or provide our services to you. We will tell you at the time if this ever happens.


Most of the personal information we process about you is given to us by you directly when you:

  • apply for, or access and use our services (including when you apply through an authorised introducer or seller of our services), or
  • give us feedback or contact us, or
  • ask us to send you marketing or other information or subscribe to our publications, or
  • enter a survey, promotion or competition.

We also receive personal information about you from the following sources.

  • other people from your organisation or group

We do this by using cookies and other similar technologies. Please see our cookie policy below for further details.

Credit Reference and Fraud Prevention. When considering your application for our services and managing your contract with us, and as part of our supplier due diligence checks on providers of goods/services to us, we may make searches at credit reference agencies (CRAs) including Experian about you, and in the case of a company, the owners, directors, and authorised users and signatories, including for the purpose of verifying your identify.

The CRA may check the details they supply against information held about you on any database (public or otherwise) to which they have access, including electoral register information in order to verify your identity and will keep a record of the search (a ‘footprint’ on your file) which may be used by others to make decisions about you and your financial associates.  We may share information, including about how you conduct your agreement, with CRAs. If false or inaccurate information is provided and/or fraud is identified, details will be passed to fraud prevention agencies to prevent fraud and money laundering.


We will only use your personal data where we have a lawful basis. We may have more than one lawful basis, depending on the purpose it is being used. The lawful bases we rely on are either:

  • to enter into or perform a contract with you
  • where necessary for our legitimate interests (or those of a third party) provided that your interests and rights don’t override those interests
  • to meet a legal obligation
  • with your consent (we do not generally rely on consent as a legal basis for processing your personal data, but we will get your consent before sending any third-party direct marketing communications by email or text message). You have the right to withdraw your consent at any time.

Automated decision making

We may sometimes use a scoring or other automated decision-making system when processing information, including personal data, about you provided by you or otherwise obtained (including information provided by third parties, about previous conduct/payment arrears, and from official public records). Where used, automated decision-making systems help us to make fair and reasonable decisions as to whether to provide services to an applicant, considering the financial security and status of the applicant. The methods and logic applied to any automated decision-making system will be tested and updated regularly to ensure they remain fair, effective and unbiased.  Should the results of any scoring or other automated decision be too low, we are unlikely to conclude a contract with the applicant. Please write to us if you like to request that we reconsider a decision made solely by automated decision-making. 


We aim to give you choices regarding certain personal data uses, particularly around marketing and advertising. You can view and update your preferences via the applications you use to access our services.

We may use your personal data to form a view on what we think you may want or need, or what may be of interest to you. This is how we decide which services and offers may be relevant for you.

You will receive marketing communications from us if you have requested information from us, or if you have requested or purchased services from us, and you have not opted out of receiving that marketing. You can ask us to stop sending you marketing messages by contacting us at any time.

Change of purpose

We will only use your personal data for the purposes it was collected for unless we reasonably consider we need to use it for another reason and that reason is compatible with the original purpose.  If you would like an explanation as to how the processing for the new purpose is compatible with the original purpose, please contact us. If we need to use your personal data for an unrelated purpose, we will tell you and explain the lawful basis that allows us to do so. Please note that we may process your personal data without your knowledge or consent, in compliance with the above rules, if we are required or permitted to do so by law.


We may share your personal information with:

  • third parties who provide data about you to us (including sharing your information to credit reference agencies and due diligence services providers for identification verification purposes);

We may sometimes use third party data processors who are based outside the UK so their processing of your personal data will involve transferring your data outside the UK.

Whenever we transfer your personal data out of the UK, we ensure a similar degree of protection is afforded to it in accordance with UK data protection laws which may include ensuring at least one of the following safeguards is implemented:

  • we will only transfer your personal data to countries that have been deemed to provide an adequate level of protection for personal data,
  • where we use certain service providers, we may use specific contracts approved for use in the UK which give personal data the same protection it has in the UK.

Please contact us if you want further information about any international transfers and the mechanisms we use for any transfers of your personal data outside of the UK.


We have put appropriate security measures in place to prevent your personal data from being accidentally lost, used or accessed in an unauthorised way, altered or disclosed. We also limit access to your personal data to those employees, agents, contractors and other third parties who have a business-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 procedures in place 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.

We will keep your personal data for as long as is reasonably necessary to fulfil the purposes it was collected for, including to satisfy any legal, regulatory, tax, accounting or reporting requirements. We may keep your personal data for a longer period in the event of a complaint, or if we reasonably believe there may be litigation in respect to our relationship with you.

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 it is processed and whether we can achieve those purposes through other means, and the applicable legal, regulatory, tax, accounting or other requirements.

In some circumstances you can ask us to delete your data: see at “Your legal rights” below.

We may anonymise your personal data (so that it can no longer be associated with you) for research or statistical purposes, in which case we may use this information indefinitely without further notice to you.


Under certain circumstances, you have rights under data protection laws in relation to your personal data. Your rights include:

  • Access – you can ask us for copies of your personal information
  • Rectification – you can ask us to rectify personal information you think is inaccurate. You can also ask us to complete information you think is incomplete. We may need to verify the accuracy of the new data you provide to us.
  • Erasure – you can ask us to erase your personal information where there is no good reason for us continuing to process it. We may have specific legal reasons why we are unable to comply with your request, in which case we will tell you at the time.
  • Restriction of processing – you can ask us to temporarily restrict or suspend the processing of your personal information in certain circumstances.
  • Object to processing – you can object to the processing of your personal information if we are relying on a legitimate interest, and you feel there is something about your particular situation that means the processing impacts on your fundamental rights and freedoms. Or if we are using your personal data for direct marketing purposes. In some cases, we may be able demonstrate that we have compelling legitimate grounds that override your rights and freedoms.
  • Data portability – you can ask that we transfer automated personal information that you initially provided consent for us to use, or where we used the information to perform a contract with you, to another organisation, or to you.

You are not required to pay any charges for exercising your rights. However, we may charge a reasonable fee, or refuse to comply, if your request is clearly unfounded, excessive, or repetitive.  

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.

If you wish to make a request, you should contact us at or write to us at Bank House, Bank Street, Whitefield, Manchester M45 7JF. 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.
