Your Data Privacy Matters To Us

How We Use Your Data

We know that people are concerned about their privacy. This is not something that we are on a different side of the argument on, nothing is more important. We want to collect as little information as possible in order for us to make a decision. We also want to retain that information for as short as short a period of time as possible.

As it happens the Financial Conduct Authority requires lenders to ask more questions of applicants than we used to. This is in order for us to check that a policing can make repayments on time (the affordability check). It requires us go ask about incomings and outgoings. In a way this is of course important, but as lenders we know that people tend to make this up anyway and we don't really rely on it for our decision making process. The number of people on £60,000 a year with zero outgoings and still need a £1000 loan is amazing. If we did use this information we would be out of business pretty quick. Unfortunately we still have to ask and process the data.

Some people want loans that we no longer offer ourselves, usually loans under £1000 or for less than 1 year. For these loans we use partner sites that are willing to lend to students. We need to share with them the information you give us for them to make a decision and process the loan. They will not be given personal contact details such as email or phone numbers unless they make a loan offer and you have read and agreed that you are happy with the loan. If you do not wish to proceed, this data will be destroyed and we will hold no further record of it on any of our system.
