Special Category Data Consent Form

Our Purpose

We collect and process your personal data in order to provide our services, to help us understand your circumstances and any practical needs that we might be able to help with by making adjustments to support your banking needs. Some of the information we collect is sensitive personal data (also known as special categories of data). In particular, we may process personal data that relates to your health, such as your medical history.

If we use sensitive personal data, we will usually do so on the legal basis that it is in the wider public interest or in some cases, that we have obtained your permission. We will request you to complete the Special Category Data Consent Form before doing so. If you give us personal information about someone else (such as a joint applicant), you should do so with their permission and you must ensure they are made aware of the content of this Form.

Please find our Special Category Data Consent Form here.

By agreeing to the contents of this Form, you are providing us with your permission to process special categories of data of yourself or someone else that has given their consent to you. For details on Special Category Data and how we handle customers’ personal data, please refer to our Privacy Notice.

If you wish to withdraw your consent once it is given, please contact us. There will be no repercussions and we will stop processing the Special Category Data right away.
