4.2.2. Credit reference checks
When credit reference agencies receive a search from us they may:
- (if you are a director of the Customer or act as guarantor) place a search "footprint" on your credit file whether or not this application proceeds. If the search was for a credit application the record of that search (but not the name of the organisation that carried it out) may be seen by other organisations when you apply for credit in the future; and
- link together the records of you and anyone that you have advised is your financial associate including previous and subsequent names of parties to the account. Links between financial associates will remain on your and their files until such time as you or your spouse/partner, or other persons with whom you are linked financially, successfully files for a disassociation with the credit reference agencies.

- credit information such as previous applications and the conduct of the accounts in your name and of your associate(s);
- public information such as county court judgments and bankruptcies;
- electoral register information; and
- fraud prevention information.
If you are a director of the Customer or act as guarantor, if you are provided with a finance facility and do not repay in full and on time, we may tell credit reference agencies who will record the outstanding debt. These records may be used and shared by us and them to:
- consider applications for credit and credit related services or other facilities, for you and any associated person;
- to check details of job applicants and employees; and
- trace debtors, recover debts, prevent or detect money laundering and fraud and to manage your account(s).

help make decisions on motor, household, credit, life and other insurance proposals and insurance claims, for you and members of your household; and

7. Processing of Special Categories of Personal Data and Criminal Conduct Data
7.1. Some types of personal data are considered to be sensitive and are accorded greater protection under data protection legislation. These include:
7.1.1. "Special Categories of Personal Data" which include personal data that reveals racial or ethnic origin, political opinion, religious or philosophical beliefs, trade-union membership, and the processing of genetic data, biometric data in order to uniquely identify a person or data concerning health, sex life and sexual orientation. Data concerning health covers Personal Data relating to the physical or mental health of an individual which reveals information about the individual's health status; and
7.1.2. "Criminal Conduct Data" which is Personal Data relating to criminal convictions or offences or related security measures.
7.2. As a general rule, we do not process Special Categories of Personal Data or Criminal Conduct Data. However, in order to perform our obligations as the registered keeper of the vehicle and provide our services effectively, we are required to process sensitive information about nominated drivers in the following limited circumstances:
7.2.1. Health/medical information: As detailed at paragraph 6.2.6 above, we may process health information in the course of providing services in response to an accident or Vehicle damage/loss. This is due to the fact that we may receive accident reports in our capacity as the registered keeper of the vehicle and these sometimes contain a small amount of health/medical information. We may also process this data for regulatory requirements (for example informing the DVLA of any notifiable health conditions such as diabetes), where the processing may be necessary to protect the individual from physical, mental or emotional harm, and for insurance purposes (including to ensure reasonable adjustments are made to the vehicles to take account of medical or health conditions). We do not collect this information by any other means or for any other purpose.
7.2.2. This health information may be shared with law enforcement agencies or the DVLA, insurers or impacted parties, as well as your employer (our customer) in the event of an accident or a potential legal claim.
7.2.3. Criminal Conduct Data: As detailed at paragraphs 4.2.1, 6.3.5, 6.3.6, and, where applicable, 6.3.12 and 6.3.13 above, we may process information relating to criminal offences or potential criminal offences. We may also receive information relating to criminal convictions from law enforcement agencies or the DVLA, which may arise in correspondence that is incidental to our role as the registered keeper of the vehicle.
7.2.4. This Criminal Conduct Data may be shared for this purposes set out in the paragraphs 4.2.1, 6.3.5, 6.3.6, 6.3.12, 7.4.2 and 7.4.3 with our group companies, advisers, law enforcement agencies, your employer (our customer) to advise that a Vehicle leased to it may be involved, and the DVLA.
7.3. In addition to the usual appropriate technical and organisational measures we implement to ensure the security and integrity of the personal data processed by us, we may implement additional measures in relation to Special Categories of personal data and Criminal Conduct Data, as appropriate. These may include segregation, pseudonymisation or restriction of access to the data.
7.4. Our lawful basis for processing the personal data outlined at paragraph 7.2 above is Vital Interests (protecting individuals at risk of harm), Legal Claims, where necessary to enable our customer to exercise the rights or perform the obligations of an employer and reasons of substantial public interest, including the administration of justice, preventing or dtecting unlawful acts, regulatory requirements, safeguarding individuals at risk, and insurance requirements, in all cases where it is absolutely necessary and proportionate for us to do so. We rely on these bases for the following reasons:
7.4.1. In our capacity as the registered keeper of the vehicle, we need to be able to receive reports relating to any accident or damage caused to the vehicle. We are not in control of the content of these reports, which will in some cases also be used for insurance purposes. Given the relevance of health information to establishing and quantifying insurance claims, it is highly likely that these reports will contain health information.
7.4.2. There is a presumption of liability on the part of the registered keeper of a vehicle in relation to most motoring offences. Where such offences amount to a criminal offence, we rely on the lawful bases listed above (including Legal Claims or Substantial Public Interest to process your personal data in relation to the offence to transfer liability accordingly.
7.4.3. In compliance with anti-money laundering regulations and the provisions contained in global sanctions and embargoes, we conduct due diligence database checks of persons exercising control over, holders of executive functions and ultimate beneficial owners of customer entities as part of our underwriting processes. Such checks may contain criminal convictions data, which we would only process as and if required to make and maintain credit decisions and terminate agreements and services.
7.5. Further details of our processing of Special Category and Criminal Conviction data can be found in our Appropriate Policy Document, a copy of which is available on request from our Data Protection Officer at firstname.lastname@example.org.
8. Who we may share your personal data with

Personal data of customer owners, persons exercising control and holders of executive functions may be shared with credit referencing agencies and anti-sanctions service providers, and in the event of a default, debt collection and tracing companies where we have been unable to collect a vehicle through our standard processes.
8.2. Special Category and Criminal Conviction data is shared on a restricted basis as set out in paragraph 7.2 above, otherwise all other personal data of customers and nominated drivers may be shared with the following third parties where necessary to achieve the purposes identified at 5.2 (in relation to customers) and 6.3 (in relation to nominated drivers):

If we transfer your personal data outside the EEA, we will ensure that adequate levels of protection are in place in relation to the processing of your personal data.
