In accordance with the Privacy Act, Start Fresh Finance requires all loan applicants and guarantors to provide formal consent before we proceed with any formal loan applications and access and collect their personal information, including credit files, to conduct credit assessments.
How must privacy consent be provided?
To provide consent, loan applicants and guarantors must complete a:
- written Privacy Consent form when personal information is obtained before submitting an application to a lender; or
- verbal Privacy Consent form when personal information is obtained before submitting an application, and followed by a written Privacy Consent form at settlement.
We can collect all information but will not be able to formally submit to any of our lenders without the above
NOTE: some lenders do not accept verbal privacy consents
