Use of Personal Information with Credit Reference Agencies
In order to find the most suitable product for you we may use the information held at credit reference agencies (CRAs). A CRA is a company that collects personal information from various sources and provides that personal information for a variety of uses (including to prospective lenders for the purposes of making credit decisions).
How we and the CRAs will use your information is detailed in the section called ‘use of personal information in relation to services involving CRAs’. By confirming your agreement to proceed you are confirming that we may each use your information in this way.
Use of Personal Information in relation to services involving CRAs
We will search CRAs who will provide us with publicly held data, including the electoral roll and shared credit performance data. If you have a financial associate their data may also be provided.
We will use the information provided to us by a CRA to help decide which products may be best for you and to validate the information you have provided to us. It is important to note that there may be other products available from lenders who are not represented by this service.
When the CRA receives a search from us they will place a quotation search footprint on your credit report, whether or not you decide to apply for the product. This search will not affect your ability to gain credit.
The information which we provide to the CRA may be supplied by them to other organisations such as Fraud Prevention Agencies and used by those organisations for the purposes of checking identity, preventing fraud, tracing, and collection of debt. The CRA may also use the data to undertake statistical analysis.
In certain instances, your data will be shared with lender(s) to validate if you are an existing customer (which may affect whether you can be accepted for one of their cards) or for fraud prevention purposes. Note that the lender does not have permission to use your data for any other purpose.
If you choose to apply for a product, the lender will undertake a credit check and provide you with the terms and conditions for that product.
The identities of the CRAs, their role also as fraud prevention agencies, the data they hold, the ways in which they use and share personal information, data retention periods and your data protection rights with the CRAs are explained in more detail at www.experian.co.uk/crain. CRAIN is also accessible from each of the three CRAs – clicking on any of these three links will also take you to the same CRAIN document:

Links To Or From Other Websites
Where there are links from other websites to Mojo or where we provide links to websites of other organisations, this Privacy Notice does not cover how those organisations process personal information. We encourage you to read the Privacy Notices on the other websites you visit.
International Transfer of Personal Data
Mojo will only ever send personal information to recipient organisations outside the UK where those recipient organisations are required to protect personal information in a similar way as they would be required to protect personal information if they were based in the UK. We do this by ensuring at least one of the following safeguards is implemented:
- The data is only being transferred to countries that have been deemed to provide an adequate level of protection for personal data by UK law.
- Where the contract between us and the recipient organisation contains specific terms approved for use in the UK which give personal data the same protection it has in the UK.
We perform automated checks to quickly establish your eligibility for a mortgage and whether we, or selected partners, are best placed to help with your mortgage needs. In some instances, this will also mean that neither us (Mojo) or our selected partners can help you to get a mortgage. We may look at your credit profile, affordability, property details and product availability based on everything you have provided to make this decision. If we cannot help, this does not mean you cannot get a mortgage at all, just that we cannot help you at this time.
How We Store Your Information
The security of personal data is extremely important to us and therefore we have put in place appropriate security measures to protect personal information from being lost, used, or accessed in an unauthorised way.
How Long We Store Your Personal Data
We will not store your personal data for longer than necessary. The retention period will depend on factors such as the purpose and lawful basis at the point of collection of the data and any ongoing relationship we have with you. We will ensure that any data retention is fair and proportionate to meet your needs, and our legal and regulatory requirements and in line with our agreements with you.
Your Rights Over Your Data
The right to be informed
Organisations need to tell individuals what data is being collected, how it’s being used, how long it will be kept and whether it will be shared with any third parties. This information must be communicated concisely and in plain language.
The right of access
Individuals have the right to access their personal data (commonly known as a “data subject access request”). This enables individuals to receive a copy of any personal data an organisation holds about them and to check that it is being processed lawfully. Organisations usually have one month to produce this information, although there are exceptions for requests that are manifestly unfounded, repetitive, or excessive.
The right to rectification
If an individual discovers that the information an organisation holds about them is inaccurate or incomplete, they can request that it be updated. As with the right of access, organisations have one month to do this, and the same exceptions apply.
The right to erasure
The right to erasure is also known as ‘the right to be forgotten’.
Individuals can request that organisations erase their data in certain circumstances – for example, when the data is no longer necessary, the data was unlawfully processed, or it no longer meets the lawful ground for which it was collected. This includes instances where the individual withdraws consent.
Note, however, that we may not always be able to comply with your request for erasure for specific legal reasons which will be notified to you, if applicable, at the time of your request.
The right to restrict processing
Individuals can request that an organisation limits the way it uses personal data. It’s an alternative to requesting the erasure of data and might be used when an individual contests the accuracy of their personal data. An individual can also exercise this right when they no longer use the product or service for which it was originally collected, but the organisation needs it to establish, exercise or defend a legal claim.
The right to data portability
Individuals are permitted to request the transfer of their personal data to themselves or a third party. This right only applies to personal data that an individual has provided to data controllers by way of a contract or consent.
The right to object
Individuals can object to the processing of personal data that is collected on the grounds of legitimate interests or the performance of a task in the interest/exercise of official authority. Organisations must stop processing information unless they can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for the processing that overrides the interests, rights, and freedoms of the individual. They can also refuse this right if the processing is for the establishment or exercise of defence of legal claims.
Rights related to automated decision-making including profiling
UK data protections laws include provisions for decisions made with no human involvement, such as profiling, which uses personal data to make calculated assumptions about individuals. There are strict rules about this kind of processing, and individuals are permitted to challenge and request a review of the processing if they believe the rules aren’t being followed.
Please contact us at if you wish to make any data requests by:
- Email firstname.lastname@example.org
- Calling us on 0333 123 0012
- By writing to us at Mojo Mortgages, WeWork, No1 Spinningfields, Manchester M3 3JE
- You will not have to pay a fee to access your personal data (or to exercise any of the other rights). However, we may charge a reasonable fee if your request is clearly unfounded, repetitive, or excessive. Alternatively, we could refuse to comply with your request in these circumstances.
We may need to request specific information from you to help us confirm your identity and ensure your right to access your personal data (or to exercise any of your other rights). This is a security measure to ensure that personal data is not disclosed to any person who has no right to receive it. We may also contact you to ask you for further information in relation to your request to speed up and assist with our response.
We try to respond to all legitimate data requests within one month. Occasionally it could take us longer than a month if your request is particularly complex or you have made a number of requests. In this case, we will notify you and keep you updated.
How to Complain
If you have any concerns about your data, please contact us either by
- Email email@example.com
- Calling us on 0333 123 0012
- By writing to the Data Protection Officer, Mojo Mortgages, WeWork, No1 Spinningfields, Manchester M3 3JE

Information Commissioner’s Office, Wycliffe House, Water Lane, Wilmslow, Cheshire SK9 5AF
Helpline number: 0303 123 1113
