Finance Eligibility FAQs
Will it affect my credit score? No, it will not affect your score...
In a word, no.
Here, etika is using a technique with 'consumer enquiries' – or 'soft searches' as they're also known. These let you check your credit file to see how likely you are to be accepted, but they leave no mark. You'll be able to see the search yourself when you next check your credit file, but nobody else will.
Do you store my personal data? No we do not...
No, Plates4less - VRM Swansea does not store your data here. We do collect and submit your name, date of birth, address, post code, email address and certain details about your personal circumstances when you choose to use this Eligibility tool. By submitting your details, you are consenting to us passing your details to etika who will run the soft check through their partnered credit bureau. They will use this information in conjunction with the credit bureau solely to determine your eligibility. Any information that you submit in your interaction with this Eligibility tool will be controlled by etika who will comply with the terms of the Data Protection Act 2018.
Why do you need this info?
Minimum personal information is required to check your eligibility, working with a credit reference agency to do a pre-application check of your credit record, called a soft search.
