Data Protection Act 1998 - Your information

We will use the information provided to check your identity, and that of any other person providing funds on behalf of an investment made in your name, with credit reference and fraud prevention agencies. The agencies will record our check and will make that record available to others to verify your identity. We use scoring methods to verify your identity as this provides a thorough check of the available data. If you supply false or inaccurate information and we suspect fraud, we will inform the fraud prevention agencies. If we cannot verify your identity by electronic means, we may ask you for additional information.

Please contact us if you want details of the credit reference and fraud prevention agencies from whom we obtain and with whom we record information about you. You have a legal right to these details. The agencies may charge a fee.

You have a right on payment of a fee to be given access to the personal data we hold about you if you apply to us in writing.
