lessor and/ or insurance provider. We may:

other person except with your permission or as permitted, or

Those credit providers and their website addresses are set out in
the Schedule 1 at the end of this document.

A credit provider, to whom we submit an application, may

you from, from one or more CRBs

with which it deals and other detail about information held about
you, including whether that information may be held or disclosed
overseas and, if so, in which countries. The websites also

credit providers’ websites as ‘notifiable matters’, ‘privacy policy’,
‘credit reporting policy’ or ‘privacy disclosure statement and

For each CRB the website details will include the following
specific information:

screening for purposes of direct marketing by a credit

about you if you believe you are a victim of fraud.
