Do you check my credit report?
When making a loan application, we ask your permission to access your credit records at one or more of the UK’s credit bureaus (e.g. Equifax, Call Credit and Experian). The credit application search we make mirrors that made by a bank and is visible to other credit providers in the country. All companies accessing credit records on behalf of individuals must subscribe to a standard set of rules and procedures laid down by SCOR (the Standing Committee on Reciprocity). If you make all your ezbob loan repayments on time, the impact on your credit score will be positive. Credit Reference Agencies or CRAs: When CRAs receive a request from us, a search footprint is placed on your credit file that is visible to other lenders. They supply us with both public (including the electoral register) and shared credit & fraud prevention information. We will make checks such as assessing your application for credit, and verifying identities to prevent and detect crime and money laundering. We may also make periodic searches at CRAs and FPAs to manage your account with us. Information on applications will be sent to CRAs who will duly record them. When you borrow from us, we forward details of your loan(s) and/or account(s) and how you manage them, to CRAs. If you do not repay your loan in full and on time, CRAs will record the outstanding debt and, in certain cases, the length of time it remains outstanding. This information may be supplied to other organisations by CRAs and FPAs to perform similar checks and to trace your whereabouts and recover any debts owed. Records of debts remain on file for six years after they are closed, whether they were settled by you or defaulted on. Your data may also be used for purposes for which you have given your permission or, in very infrequent cases, when required by law or where it is permitted to do so under the terms of the Data Protection Act 1998.
