We use the data provided directly to us, to assess the level of credit provided or in the case of a third party finance lease, to gain a credit line on your behalf to acquire goods from TBG. Any additional data may be collected from publicly available sources (e.g. electoral register) for the following purposes:
(i) to verify your identity;
(ii) to verify your credit history and take credit decisions;
(iii) to prevent and detect fraud, terrorism and money laundering;
(iv) to manage your account; and
(v) to recover and trace debts.
These checks require us to process personal data about you.
