What personal information do we collect and hold?
We collect and hold a range of personal information from and about people (particularly people who wish to purchase our products or use our services).
In the process of conducting our business, we are likely to collect a broad range of information about our customers, prospective customers, contractors, suppliers, brokers, introducers, agents, service providers and the people who run the businesses we deal with. This information can include such things as contact details, financial information and supporting documentation (including credit history details), identification information, transaction history information, banking details and personal references. In order to satisfy our legal obligations we may need to retain that information even after a transaction has come to an end (subject to our obligations under the National Privacy Principles).
How do we collect personal information?
Wherever it is possible and practical to do so, we collect personal information directly from the person concerned. For example, we will collect personal information when a person deals with us in person or over the telephone, sends us a letter, e-mail or fax, or gives or sends us a completed form (such as an application form or guarantee). We also collect personal information we require from third parties. This might occur, for example through your insurance broker or other third party acting on your behalf.
Why do we collect and hold personal information?
We collect this information in order to assess your funding application (eg carry out credit checks), or where you have agreed to provide a guarantee, and to undertake and complete the many transactions we have with our customers, suppliers, and other parties with whom we do business. We also collect this information to administer the many products we provide and to maintain the business relationships we have that enable us to carry on our business. Personal information collected may also be used for a secondary purpose (subject to our obligations under the National Privacy Principles).
To what other organisations do we disclose personal information?
The National Privacy Principles allow QPR to share personal information to its related bodies corporate. Separately, in providing and managing our products and services, we contract with other businesses and may disclose personal information to them in the process (eg, bankers, credit insurers). These organisations provide services to QPR and may need access to the personal information we hold in order to enable them to perform those services. We require these companies to adhere to our strict confidentiality requirements for handling personal information and also seek to ensure that they adhere to the National Privacy Principles.
How do you access the personal information we hold about you.
We will safeguard all personal information we collect. Personal information is also critical to the business decisions we make, and we rely on the accuracy of information provided to us. If you wish to obtain details of your personal information that we hold, or wish to update the information you provide, or wish to make a privacy complaint, please contact QPR at (email) firstname.lastname@example.org, or call 1800 007 773 Privacy complaints will be handled through our normal complaint handling processes and we will attend to your complaint or request as quickly as possible.
