WHAT INFORMATION WE COLLECT ABOUT YOU

To be able to arrange your finance, we will need to collect your personal data including financial related information. This will also include credit and debit card information which will be passed on to relevant parties such as lenders. Payment details will be destroyed after your application has been processed and we will only ever collect information which is relevant to your application.

HOW INFORMATION ABOUT YOU WILL BE USED

In law, we are allowed to use personal information, including sharing it outside the business, only if we have a proper reason to do so, for example: 

    • To fulfil a contract with you ie to provide the service you have requested and to communicate with you about the services we are providing for you.
    • When it is in our legitimate interest ie there is a business or commercial reason to do so, unless this is outweighed by your rights or interests.
    • When you consent to it: we will always ask for your consent to hold and use health and medical information.

We have rigorous data protection and security policies in place with all our suppliers and we will not share your information with any other third party without your consent, except if we are required to do so by law.

MARKETING

We would like to send you information about products and services which may be of interest to you.  We will ask for your consent to receive marketing information. If you have consented to receiving marketing, you may opt out at a later date.

You have the right at any time to stop us from contacting you for marketing purposes or giving your information to third party suppliers of products or services. If you no longer wish to be contacted for marketing purposes, please contact us.

HOW LONG YOUR INFORMATION WILL BE KEPT FOR

If you have not visited us after a year, we will archive all your personal information, except for your name, relevant client history and financial transactions (which we are obliged to keep for 6 years).

WHERE YOUR INFORMATION IS KEPT

Please remember that sending information via the internet is not completely secure, although we will do our best to protect your information and prevent unauthorised access.

We use third party software including cloud based storage to process applications. These software suppliers store any data in the UK and adhere to UK regulations including Data Protection Regulations. They are therefore obliged to store your details securely and only use them to fulfil the contracted service.

ACCESS TO YOUR INFORMATION AND CORRECTION

You have the right to request a copy of the personal information that we hold about you.  This will normally be free, unless we consider the request to be unfounded or excessive, in which case we may charge a fee to cover our administration costs.

If you would like a copy of some or all of your personal information, please contact James Jenkins the Data Protection Officer, by emailing james@bluedragonfinance.co.uk

We want to make sure that your personal information is accurate and up-to-date.  You may ask us to correct or remove information you think is inaccurate.

You have the right to ask us to object to our use of your personal information, or to ask us to delete, remove or stop using your personal information if there is no need for us to keep it. 

E-NEWSLETTERS

We may email e-newsletters to inform you about products, services provided by our business.  You have the opportunity to unsubscribe from our e-newsletters at any time. E-newsletters may contain subscriber tracking facilities within the actual email, for example, whether emails were opened or forwarded, which links were clicked on within the email content, the times, dates and frequency of activity.  We use this information to refine future email campaigns and provide you with more relevant content based around your activity.
