Additional information

Data Protection

Your data – our promise

Paragon knows that your personal data belongs to you and not us. That’s why when you, or a third party, share your personal data with us we make sure that we keep it private and safe.

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 also share your information with a number of third parties. Where this involves transferring your personal information outside of the European Economic Area (EEA), we will make sure that it is protected in the same way as if it was being used in the EEA. We will only do this if we have your permission or to comply with a legal duty.

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.

The personal information we collect from you will be shared with fraud prevention agencies who will use it to prevent fraud and money laundering and to verify your identity. If fraud is detected, you could be refused certain services, finance or employment. Your information will also be shared with credit reference agencies (CRAs) to carry out credit checks. The CRA’s have drafted a notice called ‘Credit Reference Agency Information Notice’ (CRAIN) which sets out how your data will be processed by Callcredit, Equifax and Experian. Please go to, or to read the notice in full.

Further details of how your information will be used by us, the CRA’s, fraud prevention agencies, and your data protection rights can be found on, by calling 0800 375 720 or by contacting us.

We will only keep your personal data for as long as we need it and you have a right to ask for a copy of the personal data we hold about you.

If the personal data we hold is incorrect you have a right to ask for it to be corrected and, if you believe that we no longer have a reason to keep your personal data, you have a right to ask for it to be deleted.

For lots more information on what we do with your personal data, why we do it and what rights you have over that data, including how to make a complaint to the ICO, visit or contact us.


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.
