USE OF YOUR INFORMATION AND CUSTOMER DECLARATION
What Hitachi will do when you apply:
Hitachi will search your record at credit reference and fraud prevention agencies and that of your 'financial associate' if you have one, i.e. a person with whom you have, or have had, joint personal financial arrangements such as joint accounts or have made joint credit applications. It may be your spouse or partner (not a business partner). Hitachi may also, in certain limited circumstances, check the record, including credit details, of other members of your family and, if you are a director or partner in a small business, they may also check on your business. If you tell Hitachi that you have a financial associate, they will search, link and record information about you both at credit reference agencies. You must be sure you have your financial associate's agreement to disclose their information. If you give Hitachi false or inaccurate information and they identify fraud, they will record this with fraud prevention agencies. Law enforcement agencies may access and use this information. Hitachi will use a scoring or other automated decision-making system to assess your application and to verify your identity.
How Hitachi will use your information you have provided
Whether or not Hitachi accept your application for credit, they may pass your personal information to members of their group of companies, or business partners, affiliates or other third parties, and to anyone who introduced you to them, who may use it to inform you by letter/telephone or by email about their products and services (which may not be financially related). If Hitachi do not accept your application for credit, they may pass your personal information to another lender or broker which may accept your application. The other lender or broker may carry out its own searches at credit reference and fraud prevention agencies. If you are accepted for credit and do not want to be contacted in this way please write to Hitachi Capital Consumer Finance, 2 Apex View, Leeds, West Yorkshire, LS11 9BH.
What Hitachi will also do when you have an agreement with them:
Hitachi will add to your record with the credit reference agencies details of your agreement with them, the payments you make under it, any default or failure to keep its terms and any change of name or address. Account information given to credit reference agencies remains on file for 6 years after the account is closed, whether settled by you or upon default.
What the credit reference agencies will do:
Whether or not this application proceeds, the credit reference agency will place a record of Hitachi’s search on your credit file. This record (but not Hitachi’s name) will be seen by other organisations when you apply for credit in the future. A large number of applications within a short period of time could affect your ability to obtain credit. Whether or not this application proceeds, the agencies will link your records and those of your financial associate(s), including any previous and subsequent names. These links will remain on your and their files until you or they tell the agency you are no longer financially linked and the agency accepts this. The agencies may supply Hitachi with credit information, such as previous applications, the conduct of accounts in your and your financial associate's name, any business accounts you have, fraud prevention information and public information such as County Court Judgments, bankruptcies and the Electoral Register.
How Hitachi and others use the agency information:
Some information held by the credit reference and fraud prevention agencies will be disclosed to Hitachi and other organisations to, for example:
• prevent fraud and money laundering, for example by checking details on applications for credit and credit-related or other facilities, proposals and claims for all types of insurance and job applications and employee records;
• recover debts that you owe and trace your whereabouts;
• manage credit accounts and other facilities;
• verify your identity;
• make decisions on credit, insurance and other facilities, about you, your financial associate(s), members of your household or your business; and
• carry out statistical analysis to help with decisions about credit and account management.
The information held by these agencies may also be used for other purposes for which you give your specific permission or, in very limited circumstances, when required by law or where permitted under the terms of the Data Protection Act 1998.
Hitachi and other organisations may access and use from other countries the information recorded by fraud prevention agencies.
Please write to 'PaybyFinance Team , Hitachi Capital (UK) PLC, 2 Apex View, Leeds, West Yorkshire, LS11 9BH', if you want details of those credit reference and fraud prevention agencies from which Hitachi obtain, and to which they pass, information about you. You have a legal right to these details. You have the right to receive a copy of the information Hitachi hold about you if you apply to them in writing. A fee will be payable.
By signing and dating this declaration I confirm that I have read and understood how Hitachi Capital (UK) PLC will use the information provided by me and also confirm that I have my financial associate’s agreement to disclose their information.
