This site is owned and operated by Decidebloom Ltd. Your privacy on the Internet is of paramount importance to us. We want to make your experience on this web site satisfying and safe.


We aim to make your experience of using our website or visiting us at one of our branches satisfying, hassle-free and secure.

In order to do this we have outlined below how our website works, what data we collect from you online and in branch, how we use this data, conditions where we may disclose this data to others and how we keep any data held secure.

1. Credit Reference Agencies

In order to process your credit application, we will perform credit and identity checks on you with one or more credit reference agencies (CRAs).

To do this, we will supply your personal information, via our finance partners, to credit reference agencies (CRAs) who will provide back to that finance partner personal information.

This will include information about your financial situation and financial history. CRAs 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;

- Ensure any offers provided to you are appropriate to your circumstances.

When CRAs receive a search from us they will place a search footprint on your credit file that will be seen by other lenders. More than one search may be registered.

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 each of the three CRAs websites - clicking on any of these three links will take you to the same CRAIN document:
