Glenside Finance Ltd take the security of your personal data seriously and would like to draw your attention to this Privacy Notice.

Why do we collect your personal data?

When you make an application for finance, whether via an introducer, online, by telephone or in person, we normally require financial information from you. This would, typically, be in the form of payslips, bank statements and, in addition, a copy of a valid driving licence. The information which would be supplied voluntarily would be received by us by email, post or fax depending upon how you applied. This helps us to process your application by assessing your credit worthiness and decide whether or not we should make an offer of finance.

How your information will be used

Your personal details and those of any joint hirer will be treated confidentially and your information will be used by ourselves and only shared with credit reference agencies (CRAs) and other organisations for use in credit making decisions, for fraud prevention and to pursue debtors.

With the exception of the above, we will not disclose any information to any other organisation outside of Glenside Finance Ltd unless we are required to do so by law.

We will not share your information with third parties for marketing purposes.

If we enter into an agreement with you your details will be retained throughout the life of the agreement and for an additional period of six years after the completion of your agreement or as long as is deemed necessary. If your proposal is declined we aim to securely shred all personal data you have supplied after a period of three months has passed. We have measures in place to protect the security of your personal data.

If you require further information or wish to contact our Data Controller, you can write to us at Unit A5 Segensworth Business Centre, Segensworth Road, Fareham, Hampshire, PO15 5RQ or telephone us on 01329 849434.

The CRAs have produced a standard Credit Reference Agency Information Notice
(CRAIN) which sets out how data will be processed by the three CRAs, namely, Experian, Equifax and Callcredit. Further information about CRAIN can be found by going to the following links:
