When you apply to pay by Direct Debit, we may search information that credit reference agencies hold about you and use this to assess whether to proceed with the credit application. If your credit application is declined, we will inform you of the credit reference agency used and their contact details. The credit reference agencies may also provide a credit score and may keep a record of the search. We will not receive your credit report and your credit report will not be provided to you as a result of these searches.
