Who we are
When your business applies for products provided by us we may acquire personal information about you. This personal information will be held by Agility Risk & Compliance a part of the Agility Group. More information on the Group can be found at: http://www.agilityrac.com/
Using Your Information for Fraud Prevention
We may share your personal information from your application with fraud prevention agencies. If false or inaccurate information is provided and fraud is identified, details of this fraud will be passed to these agencies to prevent fraud and money laundering. Further details explaining how information held by the fraud prevention agencies may be used can be obtained by reading the privacy notice at https://www.lloydsbankcommercialfinance.co.uk/personal-and-business-data/
Undertaking Credit Searches
We may obtain information about you and your business from credit reference agencies and Agility Risk & Compliance records to check your credit status. The credit reference agency enquiries may be seen by other companies making their own enquiries and may affect your ability to obtain credit elsewhere.
Undertaking Credit Searches on a Joint Application
If you are making this application with other individuals (for example a business partner or other directors) you are giving us permission to search and record information in respect of you all, and create a link between your financial records at credit reference agencies which will remain until you successfully apply for a “notice od disassociation” at these agencies
Checking Your Identity
We may ask you to provide physical forms of identity verification or search the files of credit reference agencies which will keep a record of our search, whether or not your application proceeds. This is not seen or used by lenders to assess your ability to obtain credit.
Undertaking Anti-Money Laundering Checks
To comply with money laundering regulations, there are times we need to confirm (or reconfirm) the name and address of our clients including directors and key account parties. This information may be shared with other Group companies.
How we Manage Sensitive Personal Information
In certain limited circumstances we may be required to process some ‘sensitive’ personal information about you. We will only do so if it is required to allow us to manage your accounts or meet any legal or regulatory requirements. We will ensure that our use of your ‘sensitive’ personal information is consistent with the requirements of the Data Protection Act and, wherever possible, we will ask for your explicit consent before we use any sensitive data.
