5. Using your personal information
5.1 Data protection, privacy and security are important to us, and we shall only use your personal
information for specified purposes and shall not keep such personal information longer than is
necessary to fulfil these purposes. The following are examples of such purposes. We have also
indicated below which GDPR justification applies, however it will depend on the circumstances of
each case. At the time of collecting we will provide further information, and you may always ask for
further information from us.
5.1.1 To help us to identify you when you contact us. This will normally be necessary for the
performance our contract.
5.1.2 To help us to identify accounts, services and/or products which you could have from us
or selected partners from time to time. We may do this by automatic means using a
scoring system, which uses the personal information you've provided and/or any
information we hold about you and personal information from third party agencies
(including credit reference agencies). We will only use your information for this purpose
if you agree to it.

accounts, services and products we have provided before, do provide now or will or
may provide in the future. This will often be necessary, but sometimes the
improvements will not be necessary in which case we will ask whether you agree.
5.1.4 To allow us to carry out marketing analysis and customer profiling (including with
transactional information), conduct research, including creating statistical and testing
information. This will sometimes require that you consent, but will sometimes be exempt
as market research.

circumstances when we consider it necessary or the law requires it.

and emails) for quality assurance and compliance.
22.214.171.124 Before doing that, we will always tell you of our intentions and of the
specific purpose in making the recording. Sometimes such recordings will
be necessary to comply with the law. Alternatively, sometimes the recording
will be necessary for our legitimate interest, but in that case we will only
record the call if our interest outweighs yours. This will depend on all the
circumstances, in particular the importance of the information and whether
we can obtain the information another way that's less intrusive.
126.96.36.199 If we think the recording would be useful for us but that it is not necessary
we will ask whether you consent to the recording, and will provide an option
for you to tell us that you consent. In those situations, if you don't consent,
the call will either automatically end or will not be recorded.

how the data processor operates so that you can be confident your data is protected to
the same degree as provided in this Notice.
5.2.2 Sometimes it might be necessary to share data with another data controller. Before
doing that we will always tell you. Note that if we receive information about you from a
third party, then as soon as reasonably practicable afterwards we will let you know;
that's required by the GDPR.
5.2.3 Alternatively, sometimes we might consider it to be in your interest to send your
information to a third party. If that's the case, we will always ask whether you agree

provided them with the information set out in this Notice and that they have not objected to such
use of their personal information.

other purpose. Further, they must process the personal information in accordance with
this Notice and as permitted by the GDPR. From time to time, these other people and
