We only process information about you that we believe is necessary for us to provide our services to you or to improve the services that we are able to offer.
CONSENT – Where you, as the data subject, provide your consent to the processing of your personal data for one or more specific purposes, you may withdraw your consent at any time.
We typically use consent as our legal basis for processing personal data where the processing is conducted in order to send communications to you about our services, to exchange information for aftersales surveys or further marketing purposes.
CONTRACT – Where you are providing your data for the services that you request from us – it is necessary for us to use your information to carry out checks for identity and suitability before we provide those services to you. In these circumstances your data is being processed as it is necessary for the purposes of entering into a contract for services that you have requested.
We would typically use this legal basis for processing your personal data in order to process an application for a vehicle loan so that you can enter into a loan agreement with one of our panel of funders.
This legal basis for processing personal data is also used when processing personal data of those who wish to enter into a contract for employment with Evolution Funding.
LEGAL OBLIGATION – There are circumstances when we are compelled by a legal obligation to process certain personal data about individuals. This is typically a legal basis for processing ‘proof of identity’ data when confirming a candidate’s right to work in the UK. This will be relevant to those applicants who have successfully completed the initial stages of the recruitment process.
LEGITIMATE PURPOSES – Data protection law also allows us to use personal information for our genuine and legitimate reasons as long as we respect your rights and freedoms. Such uses include checks for to prevent fraud and money laundering.
Legitimate interests is also our legal basis when considering the period of time to retain customer records, in order to protect the commercial interest of the company e.g. from suspected fraud or to defend against complaints for negligence.
When we rely on our legitimate interests as the legal basis for processing the information in your personal data, we will carefully consider and balance any possible effect this may have on you and your rights.
SECONDARY USE OF YOUR DATA – Additionally, some of the information that we collect may also help us develop new and improved products and services to meet our customers’ needs. If we use your data for these secondary purposes then we either obtain your consent for those purposes or anonymise the data so that it no longer contains information that can identify you.
We may also pass your data onto companies who offer additional insurance and warranty products.

The right to be informed – this means we must provide, at the point of collecting your data, a privacy notice (this document) informing you of how your personal information will be used.
The right to access your personal information – this means that you have the right to know what information we hold about you, and to request a copy of it. This information is provided free of charge.
Data accuracy – The right to get inaccurately recorded information corrected.
The right to erasure – this means that you can request that your personal data is deleted from our records, also referred to as ‘the right to be forgotten’.
The right to restrict how your personal information is used – this means that you have the right to object to how we use your personal information, including for direct marketing purposes.
The right to receive your personal information in a legible and transferable format – this means that you can make a reasonable request for your data to be sent to you in a format that is accessible to you.
The right to object to the use of your personal information – This right applies unless we can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for continuing to process your data.
Rights related to automated decision making including profiling – this means you have the right to object to your personal information being used to make a decision based on an automatic process without human intervention.
