PRIVACY POLICY 

  1. We will store and process your information on our computers and in any other way. By "your information" we mean personal and financial information we obtain from you or from third parties (such as credit reference agencies or other organisations when you apply for a product or service),

We and other companies in the Old Mutual Group will use your information to provide our services, for assessment and analysis (including credit and/or behaviour scoring, market and product analysis), and to develop and improve our services to you, for example by informing you about products and services (including those of others) which may be of interest to you (although other members of the Group will only send marketing material to you with your consent). If you do not want to receive information about our products or services please inform us. 

  3. If we transfer your information to a service provider or agent in another country, we will make sure that the service provider or agent agrees to apply the same levels of protection as we are required to apply to information held in Jersey and Guernsey, and to use your information only for the purpose of providing the service to us.
