Verify your identity with a credit reporting body


Latitude is required by the Anti-Money Laundering & Counter-Terrorism Financing Act 2006 to verify my identity before providing me with a product or service.

By Checking this box (or acknowledging this statement), I agree I have read this information and allow Latitude to provide personal information about me to Credit Reporting Bodies to enable verification of my identity.

Personal information that Latitude may provide to the credit reporting body includes:

  • My full name
  • My address
  • My date of birth

I understand that in addition to the circumstances described in the privacy consent, my personal information will be used by the credit reporting body and by Latitude to assess whether the information provided by Latitude matches the information held about me by the credit reporting body for the purpose of verifying my identity. I also understand that use of my personal information in this way does not constitute a credit check or impact my credit standing in any way.

The credit reporting body may inform Latitude as to whether the personal information provided is a full or partial match with information held on credit information files. Latitude cannot rectify any discrepancies but will advise me by letter or email and provide contact details of the credit reporting body where I can confirm my details.
