Type of personal information we process
We will collect personal information from you directly as a result of your application for finance, but we will also collect personal information about you from other sources such as Credit Reference Agencies (CRA’s).
This personal information will include your name; your contact details including your email address, home and mobile telephone numbers; your date of birth; your employment details; your home address and address history together with information about your occupier status; your identification documents such as your passport; your nationality; your bank details; your solvency and/or litigation history; details of any criminal convictions.
Using your information
We will use your personal information to provide you with products and services (including making credit decisions about you or your business) to comply with the law and enforce our legal rights (including debt recovery), and to improve and market our products and services (including research).
Legal basis for using your personal information

- we need to use the information to comply with our legal obligations;
- we need to use the information to perform a contract with you;

CRA’s, Fraud Prevention Agencies and Automated Decision Making
In considering your application we may search your credit record at the CRA’s (‘your records’). We or our funders may also search linked records of your spouse or partner. Such searches at CRA’s may include searches against those to whom you may be linked, which may include your spouse/partner, your fellow directors (where you are a company) or other persons with whom you are linked financially. For the purposes of your application, you may be treated as financially linked to such individuals and in such circumstances you will be assessed by reference to all such “associated records”. Where you are a company, you will inform each director of the company of this notice. The CRA will add to your record details of our search and your application and this will be seen by other organisations that make searches. We may use credit scoring or other automated decision making systems when assessing your application. We may also undertake further searches against you and any associations for the purpose of tracing and recovering debt.
It is imperative that you give us accurate information. We will check your details with Fraud Prevention Agencies, and if you give us false or inaccurate information and we suspect fraud, we will record this. We, the CRA’s and the fraud prevention agencies will also use your records for statistical analysis about credit, insurance and fraud.
We may undertake searches with Equifax for the purposes of verifying your identity and for anti-money laundering purposes. To do so Equifax may check the details you supply against any particulars on any database (public or otherwise) to which they have access. They may also use your details in the future to assist other companies for verification purposes. A record of the search will be retained. If you are a joint applicant, such as a partnership, unincorporated association or if you are a body corporate, such as a limited company or LLP or charity, you are responsible for obtaining the agreement of any partner/ trustee/ officer/ director/ shareholder (as so required) to create an identity search against them at a CRA and have ensured this notice is provided.
The identities of the CRA’s, their role also as fraud prevention agencies, the data they hold, the ways in which they use and share personal information, data retention period and your data protection rights with the CRAs are explained in more detail by the CRA (Equifax).
If we, or a Fraud Prevention Agency, determine that you pose a fraud or money laundering risk, we may refuse to provide the services and financing you have requested, or we may stop providing existing services to you.

We are committed to acting professionally, fairly and with integrity in all our business dealings and relationships and will implement and enforce effective systems to counter bribery and corruption.
Federal Capital will uphold all laws relevant to our business to counter bribery and corruption and we remain bound by the laws of the UK, including the Bribery Act 2010.
Bribery and corruption are punishable for individuals by up to ten years’ imprisonment and if we are found to have taken part in corruption we could face an unlimited fine and irretrievable damage to our reputation. We therefore take our legal responsibilities very seriously and exercise every endeavour in the course of our operation to identify and prevent any such risk.
The purpose of this policy is to publicly communicate to our clients, partners and third parties our position on bribery and corruption. Our employees must refer to our internal policies and our Company Handbook.
In this policy, third party means any individual or organisation that comes into contact with us, and includes actual and potential clients, customers, introducers, brokers, suppliers, business contacts, agents, advisers, and government and public bodies, including their advisors, representatives and officials, politicians and political parties.
