Automated Decision Making
An automated decision is one which we rely on a computer or system to assess the information you provide to us to make a decision about you. This may include:
- assessing your eligibility for a product or service, for example a credit check for a loan application
- detecting any fraudulent activity which may be taking place, or there is a risk that it could take place
- checking identity and residency statuses
If we do make an automated decision about you, in some cases you have the right to ask that we do not make our final decision based solely on the automated decision, and you can also object to the automated decision and ask that someone reviews it. If you want to do this you’d need to contact us or use the contact information which will be provided to you once you’ve received the automated decision.
How we may contact you about the products and services we provide you.
To help us keep you up to date about the products and services that we provide to you and to ensure that you’re kept fully informed, we may contact you by letter, telephone, email, text message or other electronic means.
If you start an application for a product or service through us we will attempt to contact you shortly after if you were unable to complete your application for whatever reason.
If you enter into a product for a fixed period of time, for example an annual insurance policy or a fixed term mortgage, we may contact you to discuss a renewal of the product where this may be available.
If you do not want to be contacted in a particular way then you can request this at any time, but if we are providing a service to you, we do need to be able to send you communications. This can often be due to a legal or regulatory requirement.
It is important that you keep us up to date when you change your contact details or any other personal information, to ensure that we use your up to date contact information and that we use accurate information about you.
