Additional information

Data Protection

Disclosure - Data Protection Act 1998 Important - Use of your information

You have a right to know how we will use your information. Your information will be used by Paragon Banking Group PLC for the purpose of considering your application for employment, and for monitoring purposes as part of an established programme for the promotion of equal opportunities.

We may make searches about you at credit reference agencies who will supply us with credit information, as well as information from the Electoral Register for the purpose of verifying your identity. The agencies will record details of the search as “identification” but it will not be seen or used by lenders to assess your ability to obtain credit. You may also be asked to provide physical forms of identification. We may use scoring methods or other automated decision making systems when assessing applications.

To prevent or detect fraud we will check your details with/against Group records and fraud prevention databases. It is important that you give us accurate credit-check information. Should our investigations identify fraud or the commission of any other criminal offence on your part when applying for, or during the course of your employment or duties with us, we will record the details of this on the relevant fraud prevention databases. This information may be credit-checked from the UK and other countries and used by law enforcement agencies and by us and other organisations to prevent fraud.

We and other organisations may also access and use this information to prevent fraud and money laundering, for example, when:

• Checking details on applications for credit and credit-related or other facilities

• Managing credit and credit-related accounts or facilities

• Recovering debt

• Checking details on proposals and claims for all types of insurance

• Checking details of job applicants and employees

Paragon Banking Group will treat your information as confidential, only processing it where necessary in accordance with your Contract of Employment or with your agreement. Please contact us on 0800 375 720 if you would like to have details of those credit reference agencies, fraud prevention agencies and organisations from whom we obtain and to whom we pass information about you. You have a legal right to these details. You have a right to receive a copy of the information we hold about you if you apply to us in writing. A fee may be payable.



All information stated by me on this form is correct and I understand that falsifying any details will be sufficient cause to retract the offer. I give permission to investigate these statements and take references which may include my present employer, and validate my qualifications by contacting the examining boards that I have provided. I understand that no references will be taken with my present employer prior to an employment offer, unless permission is given.

I understand that a search will be carried out on me, via a credit reference agency, prior to any offer of employment being made.



Thank you for taking the time to complete our application form
