Will you credit score me and if so, what does this mean?
Credit scoring is the process used by financial services companies to
evaluate the credit risk of new applicants. This technique will be applied
to your application for online finance.
Scoring works by awarding points for each answer given on the application
form such as age, income and occupation, together with information obtained
from credit reference agencies.
This information allows us to produce consistent decisions, ensuring all
our applicants are treated fairly. Credit scoring does not discriminate on
the grounds of sex, race, religion or disability.
If you decline my application, what is the reason?
In addition to credit scoring, we also take into account confirmation of
your identity, validation of certain application details, existing
commitments and information held at the credit reference agencies. Though
we are unable to provide you with a main reason for decline of your
application, it is usually based on one, or a combination of the following:
• Your credit score (please note that every finance company will score you
• Adverse credit reference agency information
• You are considered to be overcommitted
• You are aged under 18
• Your existing account performance with other lenders
What type of information do credit reference agencies hold about
Some of the information is public information, for example electoral roll,
County Court Judgements and bankruptcies. Other lenders may also file
information about accounts you hold with them for instance this could
include your payment history and outstanding balance on these accounts. Any
requests for credit, where a credit reference search has been undertaken,
will also be filed, although the result of the request is not recorded.
How do I obtain a copy of this information?
You should send a cheque for £2.00 made payable to the relevant credit
reference agency, together with details of all addresses at which you
have lived over the last 6 years:
• Experian Limited, Customer Support Centre, PO Box 9000, Nottingham, NG80 7WF
• Equifax Ltd., Customer Service Centre, PO Box 10036, Leicester, LE3 4FS
• TransUnion International UK Limited, Consumer Services, PO Box 491, Leeds, LS3 1WZ
The above listed agencies will provide details of information relating to
these addresses. If you believe that the information is incorrect, you can
ask the agency to correct it.
If my application is not successful, can I re-apply?
Yes. We acknowledge that your circumstances change and just because we have
refused a previous application, it does not mean that we'll automatically
turn down a further request. We do suggest however, that you leave at least
6 months between applications.
Can I request delivery to an address other than my home?
In order to safeguard against fraudulent applications, we regret that we're
able only to deliver goods to the home address of the applicant.
Can I change the order after I have completed finance?
In the event of an exchange or a change to the order within the first 14
days which results in the order value falling below £1,000 (the minimum
order requirement for interest free credit), then the initial finance would
be cancelled by Clogau and any discrepancy in value would need to be paid
via an alternative method in full directly to Clogau
