Privacy Policy

How we use your data

The information you provide is subject to EU General Data Protection Regulation. In accepting our terms of service, you consent that we may process your personal data for the purposes of arranging vehicle finance and insurance products. The word “Processing” includes obtaining, recording and holding information about you, your partner and your family finances; we obtain that information directly from you, and from third parties who you authorise to provide information. You provide information through our computer or paper application process, in your telephone conversations with us, and by letters and emails, you send us. We record this information on paper files and our computer databases. We also record electronically our telephone conversations with you. You may also provide us with copies of documents about your financial affairs which we retain. e.g. wage slips, bank statements, copies of identification, etc. We also collect information from third parties about you, in paper and computer forms. e.g. information from car dealers about the car you are purchasing, and information from credit reference agencies.

Primarily, we use your data and data about your family’s circumstances to arrange vehicle finance and insurance products on your behalf. The collection of data is necessary for us to perform our contractual responsibilities to you; i.e. the provision of the services you have requested. If you limit the information you provide to us, or decline to answer certain questions, then we may not be able to help you.

When we undertake our research, or when we arrange finance or insurance for you, we will pass some of your information to the chosen finance provider or insurance company. These companies ask for your information in the form of an application document (which could be electronic). They will ask for other supporting data relevant to your transaction and copies of your identification documents. These product providers may administer your arrangements and provide services from centres outside Europe (e.g. India, USA); these countries may not always have the same standard of Data Protection laws as the UK and EU. However, the providers of these services are required to put a contract in place to ensure that your information is adequately protected, and they will remain bound by their obligations under GDPR even when your personal information is processed outside Europe. Examples of lender Privacy Policies may be found at: privacy-policy or privacy-policy/.

Other lenders will have their own privacy policies available on their web sites.

“Processing” your data also includes transferring your data to other companies and agencies associated with us, who are part of the process. Those companies and agencies could be: (1) product providers - as explained above; (2) Credit reference agencies (see below) and lenders who provide background financial information about you; (3) the FCA, the FOS, the police, or any other statutory, governmental or regulatory body – if they request to see our files or you make a complaint; (4) solicitors and debt collection agencies – if we are involved in a dispute with you; (5) third-party suppliers who provide services to us for quality control purposes and administration. e.g. business processing services, SMS text update services, client database systems, or compliance and regulatory advice services; (6) Our account managers who work with the motor dealers (7) motor dealers who are arranging the purchase of your vehicle. You agree that relevant personal information held by ourselves may be disclosed on a confidential basis, and in accordance with regulations, to any such parties. Under the rules of the EU GDPR, we are classed as the “data controller”, and we must fulfil certain legal responsibilities to you. By sharing your data with other organisations there will be multiple “data controllers” involved in the process who must equally fulfil these responsibilities to you.

c) We will access from Equifax Ltd both public (including the electoral register) and shared credit and fraud prevention information. This information will be used to check your eligibility against a select group of lenders.

We offer a non-advised service, meaning we cannot give you advice or a recommendation on products. But in assessing your application we will ask you for information to enable us to identify your needs and present a selection of products relevant to your requirements.
