Data Protection & You The   Data   Protection   Act   requires   companies   and   individuals   who   process   and   retain   information   about   their   customers   to   tell   the   customer   how   the information will be used and to what purposes it will be put. The   Act   does   not   restrict   itself   only   to   information   kept   on   a   computer.   It   is   relevant   to   any   ordered   filing   system.   The   information   below   describes how your data will be processed. We will not use your personal data in any other way without first informing you. Central   Bridging   receives,   holds   and   processes   information   relating   to   individuals   (‘personal   data‘)   in   accordance   with   the   Data   Protection   Act   1998 (‘DPA98’). In doing so we are committed to maintaining the privacy and protection of all personal data collected. Collection of Data We   will   collect   information   which   you   provide   to   us   when   you   enquire   about   or   apply   for   finance,   which   includes   information   gained   from   our   Loan Application   Form.   This   may   include   certain   sensitive   personal   data.   We   may   also   collect   data   about   you   from   our   searches   at   various   Credit   Reference Agencies (see below).

Credit Reference Agencies – Searches & Financial Links Please   note   that   searches   at   Credit   Reference   Agencies   will   be   shown   in   any   other   searches   which   are   made   in   connection   with   applications   made   by you and/or other members of your household. Information   held   about   you   by   a   Credit   Reference   Agency   may   already   be   linked   to   records   relating   to   another   person,   for   example   your   spouse,   and for   the   purpose   of   your   loan   application   you   will   be   treated   as   financially   linked.   Your   loan   application   will   be   assessed   with   reference   to   all   linked records. If   you   have   confirmed   you   are   linked   financially   with   another   person,   you   are   declaring   that   you   are   entitled   to   disclose   information   about   that   person and/or   anyone   else   referred   to   by   you   and   that   you   authorise   us   and   any   search,   link   and/or   record   information   at   credit   reference   agencies   about you   and/or   anyone   else   referred   to   by   you.   The   names   and   addresses   of   the   main   Credit   Reference   Agencies   are   shown   in   the   ‘Credit   Reference Agencies   Section.   We   may   use   one   or   more   of   these   agencies.   Information   about   which   Credit   Reference   Agency   was   used   will   be   made   freely available. We   may   check   the   information   supplied   on   your   loan   application   form   against   data   held   by   Credit   Reference   Agencies.   This   may   include   more   than one   search   being   made.   Every   time   a   search   is   made   it   is   recorded   by   the   Agency   and   disclosed   to   other   organisations   on   any   later   searches.   We   will use   the   information   obtained   in   credit   reference   searches   to   help   assess   your   application.   We   may   check   your   details   with   a   Credit   Reference   Agency or with other Agencies to satisfy itself that all the details on the application are true, and that the application has been really made by you. If we suspect information is false or inaccurate it may be reported it to a fraud prevention agency. Sometimes we may not wish to lend. This may be for a number of reasons. We do not have to tell you exactly why you have been refused a loan. Credit   Reference   Agencies   do   not   keep   "blacklists"   nor   do   they   give   any   opinion   about   whether   or   not   credit   should   be   granted.   They   do   have   a   duty to keep information up to date and accurate. The main Credit Reference Agencies are: •Experian Limited, Consumer Help Service, PO Box 8000, Nottingham, NG1 5GX •Equifax Plc, Credit File Advice Service, PO Box 1140, Bradford, BD1 5US •Callcredit Plc, Consumer Services Team, PO Box 491, Leeds, LS1 5XX All lending companies use one or more of these agencies. Credit   Reference   Agencies   keep   a   wide   range   of   information.   This   includes   information   from   the   electoral   roll   (sometimes   known   as   the   voters   roll) and   records   of   most   county   court   judgments   and   bankruptcies.   They   also   retain   information   relating   to   previous   and   existing   credit   and   a   record   of searches made against the file. Lenders    share    information    through    the    agencies    providing    a    history    of    how    punctually    payments    are    being    made    or    have    been    made.    Loan information   is   usually   held   on   file   for   6   years.   Details   of   the   voters   roll   may   be   held   for   much   longer.   Information   about   credit   searches   is   kept   for   up to two years.

A fee may be required.

The   Information   Commissioner   provides   a   useful   leaflet   which   explains   how   to   request   changes   to   your   credit   reference   file.   The   easy   to   read   leaflet includes   examples   of   letters   and   details   of   various   actions   you   may   take   to   amend   a   file.   You   can   obtain   a   copy   of   the   free   leaflet   by   writing   to:   No Credit Leaflet, P.O.
