These companies may share your personal data between them where necessary for administrative purposes, fraud prevention and to undertake work preparatory to entering into an agreement with you.
This notice sets out in clear and plain language our commitment to protecting and respecting your privacy and your data rights as required by the United Kingdom General Data Protection Regulation (the “UKGDPR”). If there is anything you do not understand after reading it please contact us using the details you will find below.
Here is where we explain:

- How and why we may use it
- How we keep it secure
- Your rights in respect of your personal data
It applies whenever we collect your personal data (including when you use our website or other digital platforms), so please read it carefully.
We update this policy periodically (it was last updated on the 19th August 2023) so feel free to return to this page and read it again from time to time.
The types of personal data we use and its sources.
In order to operate our business and provide our products to our customers (including guarantors where product appropriate) we gather several different categories of personal data.
Some of this data we gather directly from you either online or via our staff during the loan application process and then afterwards during the term of the loan, some we obtain indirectly by reason of your interactions with us on our website and some from third party sources where you give us permission or it necessary to perform the contract or comply with a legal obligation such as credit references agencies, fraud prevention agencies, your bank, any third party you might seek assistance form which contacts us on your behalf.
These categories of personal data include:
- Financial and employment data that you provide or we obtain from credit reference agencies or your bank
- Personal data about you such as name, D.O.B, address, mobile number and such may include family and relationship information where you have dependents or share your home with people
- Transactional data that we obtain during the time you have a contract with us
- Technical data we capture from the devices and technology you use to interact with us such as IP addresses
- Special types of data that you specifically consent to allow us to use such as data relating to religious or ethnic origin, religious beliefs, genetic and biometric data, health data and data relating to any criminal convictions and offences
- Socio-economic data that we gather to perform analyses of you and your account
- Marketing preferences
We are required to inform you of the purposes for which we use your personal data, the legal reasons for doing so and, if we rely on a so-called “legitimate interest” as a reason, to tell you what that legitimate interest is.
A legitimate interest reason for using your data is one which is justified for a good business or commercial purpose such as marketing.
|Why we use your personal information||Our reasons||Our legitimate interests|
Who we share your data with?
If you are the borrower, we will share relevant data with the guarantor (where product appropriate). We may also share your personal data with any of the following categories of third party. Any such sharing data will be under a contract requiring compliance with rules protecting your privacy:
- Business partners who we use to provide support services such as providers of postal or other data processing services.
- Agents who we use to perform our contracts.
- Collection agencies who we use to collect monies due if you fail to pay us.
- Advertisers and advertising networks.
- Analytics and search engine providers.
- Credit reference agencies.
- Fraud prevention agencies.
- The Financial Conduct Authority, other regulators and authorities.
- Third parties that you ask us to share your personal data with such as your bank or a money advisor.
- IT providers.
- Price comparison websites and other credit brokers
- Companies which we may wish to buy or which might wish to buy us.
- Business partners from which we require services such as our banks.
The personal information we have collected from you will be shared with fraud prevention agencies who will use it to prevent fraud and money-laundering and to verify your identity. If fraud is detected, you could be refused certain services, finance, or employment. Further details of how your information will be used by us and these fraud prevention agencies, and your data protection rights, can be found by clicking here.
How we protect your data
The security of personal information about you is our priority. We protect this information by maintaining physical, electronic, and procedural safeguards that meet or exceed applicable law. We train our employees in the proper handling of personal information. When we use other companies to provide services for us, we require them to protect the confidentiality of personal information they receive.
There has been an upsurge in email 'phishing' activity, where fraudsters send emails to customers and using an array of deceptions, encourage them to give out sensitive personal banking details. Please note, that we will never ask you to send your personal or security details or update them via email, and if you are ever asked to do so, please call us first.
If you have received a phishing email, we advise you to forward the email to email@example.com and we will investigate it.
We need to collect personal data from you for performance of a contract and for compliance with our legal obligations. You may refuse to provide us with your personal data at any time in our relationship because you object to such processing but if you do so we will not be able to provide you with credit or may have to terminate our relationship with you. If you do withdraw consent where we have asked for it this will not invalidate the use of your personal data prior to the withdrawal.
Sending Personal Data outside the UK
We may send your personal data outside the UK in order to enable us to perform the contract, comply with a legal obligation or where we have a legitimate interest in so doing. Before we send any personal data to an organisation outside the UK we will make sure it is protected to the same or similar standards as if it was being used within the UK by means of contracts between us and the overseas processor or in reliance on the Information Commissioner’s finding of that country having adequate data protection provisions in place.
Automated Decision Making and Profiling
Prior to any loan (or guarantee) being agreed with you we will use your personal data to make automated decisions. This is done in order to determine whether we wish to enter into a contract with you and to determine your creditworthiness in the quickest, fairest and most legally compliant way using credit scoring and past payment history to predict future performance. We will also monitor your account using automated means for fraud detection and crime prevention purposes.
The automated decision may result in us declining your loan (or guarantee) application altogether or offering a lesser amount than that sought.
We regularly test our credit scoring model to ensure it is working appropriately and accurately.
If you are dissatisfied with the result of this automated processing you have the right to seek an explanation and request a person review the decision.
Sharing your data with Credit Reference and Fraud Prevention Agencies
In order to process your application, we will perform credit and identity checks on you (and any guarantors) with one or more credit reference and fraud prevention agencies (“CR/FPAs”).
To do this, we will supply your personal information to CR/FPAs and they will give us information about you. This will include information from your application and about your financial situation and financial history. CR/FPAs will supply to us both public (including the electoral register) and shared credit, financial situation and financial history information and fraud prevention information.
We will use this information to:
- Assess your creditworthiness and whether you can afford to take the product
- Verify the accuracy of the data you have provided to us
- Prevent criminal activity, fraud and money laundering
- Manage your account(s)
- Trace and recover debts
- Ensure any offers provided to you are appropriate to your circumstances
We will continue to exchange information about you with CR/FPAs while you have a relationship with us. We will also inform the CR/FPAs about your settled accounts. If you borrow and do not repay in full and on time, CRA/FPs will record the outstanding debt. We will also report the guarantor (where product appropriate) in the event they do not repay the same after we request payment. This information may be supplied to other organisations by CR/FPAs.
When CRAs receive a search from us they will place a search footprint on your credit file that may be seen by other lenders. If we notify them of criminal activity on your account they will keep a record of this which may result in other organisations refusing to provide you with services or employment.
If you are making a joint application, or tell us that you have a spouse or financial associate, we will link your records together, so you should make sure you discuss this with them, and share with them this information, before lodging the application. CRAs will also link your records together and these links will remain on your and their files until such time as you or your partner successfully files for a disassociation with the CRAs to break that link.
The identities of the CRAs, their role also as fraud prevention agencies, the data they hold, the ways in which they use and share personal information, data retention periods and your data protection rights with the CRAs are explained in more detail at www.callcredit.co.uk/crain and www.equifax.co.uk/crain and www.experian.co.uk/legal/crain
You have a number of rights in respect of how we use your personal information:
- You have to right to withdraw consent at any time and require us to cease any data processing which we are undertaking relying solely on consent.
- You have the right to ask us to rectify any inaccuracies in your personal information.
- You have the right to ask us to erase or restrict processing of your personal information if it is no longer necessary for us to process in accordance with any contract or legal obligation or legitimate interest.
- You have the right to ask us to cease or not to process your personal data for marketing purposes.
- Trace and recover debts
- You can exercise the above rights by contacting us by post to Data Protection Officer, at Everyday Lending Limited, 1st Floor North, 2 Dukes Meadow, Bourne End, Buckinghamshire, SL8 5XF by telephone on 0330 3033 505 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org
If you are dissatisfied about how we have used your personal data you can contact us at email@example.com Alternatively, you also have the right to complain to the Information Commissioner’s Office although they will ask you whether you have raised the matter with us beforehand. Find out how to report a concern on their website: www.ico.org.uk/concerns
We will process your personal data for either as long as you (or the guarantor) have a contractual relationship with us or you continue to owe us any repayments. If you stop being a customer after repaying your loan in full we may keep your personal data for longer than 6 years. We do this because we are obliged to hold transactional data for 5 years by law and in order to answer any regulatory inquiries or respond to any complaints.
