Latest updates

In December 2020 we updated our Privacy Notice. Some of the key changes included the following:

  • Moved and updated information related to Fraud Prevention Agencies into an Appendix
  • Being clearer about who we are and what we do
  • Clarified the lawful bases relied upon and that we use fraud detection services to undertake searches
  • Enhanced the information about how long we hold information including making it clear that sometimes personal data is not destroyed if there are inter-dependencies between IT systems but that in those circumstances the bank will limit access and put personal information beyond use wherever possible
  • Ensured that it is clear that we will continue to process information in both the UK and the EEA
  • Simplified the layout.

Our updated Data Privacy Notice and our Data Privacy Summary is effective from 1 December 2020.
