As of the 25th May 2018, a new data privacy law was introduced in the UK. As a result, we have published a new Privacy Notice to make it easier for you to find out how we use and protect your information. When you make the decision to apply for a savings or mortgage product with us, you are entrusting us with your personal information and it is important that we keep this safe. It is also important that you understand what rights you have when it comes to how we use your information.
This short notice is intended to outline some key facts about the handling of your information. We do have a longer form Privacy Notice which is accessible on request or on our website.
Whilst this notice will give you key facts, you should read the other documents which we refer to in this short notice. Our notices may be changed from time to time so please check for updates on our website to make sure you are aware of how we currently process your personal information.
