Privacy Notice

This is the privacy statement of George Banco.com Ltd and George Banco Ltd.

George Banco is the trading style of George Banco Ltd (Company Registration No. 08605069, whose registered address is; The Blue Building, Stubbs Lane, Beckington, BA11 6TE).

George Banco is part of the Everyday Loans Group ("Everyday Loans") which comprises of Everyday Holdings Limited, Everyday Loans Limited and Everyday Lending Limited and our parent, Non Standard Finance PLC.

We understand that your privacy is extremely important to you. As a result, we have put in place a number of measures to ensure that any personal data we obtain from you is processed and maintained in accordance with accepted principles of good information handling and also in accordance with the Data Protection Act 1998. This statement provides you with details of the type of information we may hold about you, how we obtain and use any information and how we protect your privacy.

We may amend this privacy policy from time to time. If any amendments are made then a notice will be posted on our website. This privacy policy was last updated on 06/09/2017.

Security of personal information

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 customerservices@georgebanco.com and we will investigate it.

 

Use of your Information

Credit rating agencies

When you apply to us for a loan we will make a search of your credit file with credit reference agencies. Initially George Banco undertakes a Quotation Search which leaves a soft footprint on your credit file rather than a hard footprint that would be left by a full credit application. A soft footprint does not affect your credit score and visible only to you and the company performing the search, but not to other lenders.

We will use the information obtained in the credit reference searches to help us decide whether or not to offer you credit. We may also use the information to satisfy us that the application has been made by you and that the information provided on the application form is true.

When a loan agreement with us has been finalised, a full credit search is made with the credit reference agencies, leaving a hard footprint on your credit file which will be visible to other credit providers.

We will give details of your account and how you manage it to credit reference agencies. If you borrow from us and do not repay in full or change address and fail to tell us about it, and payments are not made on time we may inform credit reference agencies.

Your Financial Associates

Your credit file may already be linked to records relating to other people with whom you have a financial association. When we process your application you may be treated as financially linked with them and your application will be assessed with reference to any such associated records.

If you are a joint applicant or you tell us that you are linked financially with another person, you are declaring that you are entitled to:

1) Disclose information about that person and anyone else referred to by you; and

2) Authorise us to search, link or record information at credit reference agencies about you and anyone else referred to by you.

Your financial associates will continue to show on your credit file until either you or one of your financial associates successfully files for a disassociation with the credit reference agencies. We will also link joint applicants in our own records. We will continue linking this information until the account closes or is changed into a sole account and one of you notifies us that you are no longer linked.

Fraud Prevention and Detection

George Banco may make searches of records held at fraud prevention agencies. If you give us false or inaccurate information and we confirm fraud, we will record this and may pass this information to fraud prevention agencies and other organisations to prevent fraud and money laundering. Law enforcement agencies may access and use this information.

We share personal data for crime and fraud prevention and the apprehension and prosecution of offenders.

We and other organisations may access and use from other countries the information recorded by fraud prevention agencies.

Periodic Searches

We may make periodic searches of George Banco records, credit reference and fraud prevention agencies to manage your account with us and to take decisions regarding credit, including whether to extend credit. These searches will not be seen or used by lenders outside of Everyday Loans Group.

Sharing your information

The information which we, other organisations and fraud prevention agencies provide to the credit reference and fraud prevention agencies about you and your financial associates may be supplied by the credit reference and fraud prevention agencies to other organisations and used by us and them for example to:

(i) Prevent fraud and money laundering,

(ii) Verify your identity if you or your financial associate applies for other facilities including all types of insurance applications and claims,

(iii) Assist other organisations to make decisions on credit and credit related services or other facilities,

(iv) Trace your whereabouts and recover debts that you owe,

(v) Managing credit and credit related accounts and other facilities and

(vi) Undertake statistical analysis and system testing.

(vii) Checking details on applications for credit and credit related accounts or other facilities.

(viii) Checking details of job applicants and employees.

If we are unable to provide you with credit we may pass on your application to a credit broker, another lender or a debt management company who may be able to assist you in obtaining credit or other services that may be of interest to you. The credit broker, other lenders or debt management companies may also use your information to offer products that they feel may be of interest to you.

If you do not want your information to be transferred in this way please contact us at the following address; George Banco, The Blue Building, Stubbs Lane, Beckington, BA11 6TE. Or you can call us on 01225 941941 and we will ensure that your details are not passed onto such third parties.

If your application has been introduced to us by a credit broker or other third party, we will pass information about your application to the introducer.

In addition, we may disclose your personal details to;

  1. a) Our insurers, auditors, solicitors, professional advisers, sub-contractors or any person providing services to George Banco or who are involved in the loan application, who have agreed to treat your personal details as confidential.
  2. b) Any funders of George Banco or any proposed or actual third party involved in any matter relating to the administration of your loan with George Banco who have agreed to treat your details as confidential.
  3. c) Anybody having a legal right to your personal information, including the police and any other legal and regulatory authorities and government bodies.
  4. d) Any person where such disclosure is necessary to enable us to ensure that your obligations under any agreement with us is being complied with and to ensure that any security given in connection with any loan is not at risk.
  5. e) Any other third party with your consent.

Transferring your information

We may transfer, sell or assign your personal information to third parties within or outside the European Economic Area as a result of a sale, merger, consolidation, and change of control, transfer of assets or reorganisation of George Banco.

If this involves a transfer of personal information to countries outside the EEA, we will only transfer personal information to companies who guarantee to us that they will provide the same level of protection as that personal data would have received in the UK.

Marketing

We may record, use, exchange, analyse and assess information held about you and your relationship with us. Whether or not your account with us has closed, we may occasionally use this information to give you information by fax, mail, email, text message, mms or other form of electronic communication about products and services that may be of interest to you, unless you have advised us that you do not wish to receive such communications.

We may also pass this information to selected businesses outside George Banco who may contact you directly about services and products that may be of interest to you.
