When you apply to use Bumper's Paylater service, we will check records about you (and others where applicable) held by the following organisations
- Bumper (our own)
- Credit Reference Agencies (CRAs)
- Fraud Prevention Agencies (FPAs)
The check made by Bumper with CRAs is a ‘soft check’ and will not place a search footprint on your credit file. However, Bumper are obliged to report the status of all payments (on time, late or missed) to CRAs once your Paylater plan is in place.
The CRA that Bumper uses is TransUnion, and you can find their contact details below.
The CRAs provide us with public information (including the electoral register, county court judgements and bankruptcies) and shared credit and fraud prevention information including details of previous applications and the status of any accounts you and your financial associates have.
We may also make occasional searches with CRAs and FPAs to manage our relationship with you.
Any information that you share when applying to use Bumper's Paylater service will be sent to CRAs and recorded by them. We and other organisations may access and use this information to prevent fraud and money laundering, and CRAs and FPAs may use your information for statistical analysis. Information held by CRAs and FPAs will be disclosed to us and to other organisations in order to (for example):
- Prevent fraud and money laundering and to check and assess applications for credit, credit related or other facilities.
- Recover debts that you owe and trace your whereabouts.
- Manage credit accounts and other facilities and decide appropriate credit limits.
- Verify your identity.
- Make decisions on credit and other facilities for you, your financial associate(s), members of your household or your business.
- Check details of job applicants and employees.
- When you borrow from us, we will give details of your loan and how you manage it to the CRAs. If you borrow and do not repay in full and on time, the CRAs will record the outstanding debt and, in some cases, the length of time that the debt remains outstanding; other organisations may see these updates and this may affect your ability to obtain credit in the future
If you fall 3 or more payments behind, and a full payment (or satisfactory repayment arrangement) is not received within 28 days of a formal demand being issued, then a default notice may be recorded with the CRAs. Any records shared with CRAs will remain on file for 6 years after your account is closed, whether any outstanding sums have been settled by you or as following a default.
This information may be supplied to other organisations by CRAs and FPAs to perform similar checks and to trace your whereabouts and recover debts that you owe. Records remain on file for 6 years after they are closed, whether any outstanding sums have been settled by you or following a default.
If you give us false or inaccurate information and we have reasonable grounds to suspect fraud or we identify fraud, we may record this and may also pass this information to FPAs and other organisations involved in crime and fraud prevention including law enforcement agencies who may then access this information.
We and other organisations may access and use the information recorded by fraud prevention agencies from other countries.

You can make what is known as a Subject Access Request (“SAR”) to request information about the personal data we hold about you (free of charge, save for reasonable expenses for repeat requests). If you wish to make a SAR please contact us as described below.
- You have the right to have your personal data corrected, completed, restricted and deleted by the controller. Please notify us if you no longer wish us to hold personal data about you (although in practice it is not possible to provide our services without holding your personal data). Unless we have reasonable grounds to refuse the erasure, on receipt of such a request we will securely delete the personal data in question within one month. The data may continue to exist in certain backup, but we will take steps to ensure that it will not be accessible. We will take reasonable steps to communicate any corrections or erasure to any third parties to whom we have passed the same information.
- You have the right to receive the personal data concerning you that you have provided to the controller in a structured, common and machine-readable format. (Right to data portability). You may also request that we transfer your personal data directly to a third party (where technically possible).
- You have the right to object at any time, on grounds relating to your particular situation, to the processing of personal data concerning you which is carried out on the basis of Article 6 (1) (e) or Article 6 (1) (f) of the UK GDPR/GDPR unless we have overriding legitimate grounds for such processing. You may also object if we use your personal data for marketing purposes (including profiling) or for research or statistical purposes. Please notify your objection to us and we will gladly cease such processing, unless we have overriding legitimate grounds. You may revoke your consent at any time, taking into account Art. 7 (3) UK GDPR/GDPR.
- Without prejudice to any other administrative or judicial remedy, you have the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority, in particular in the country of your residence, place of work or the place of the alleged infringement, if you consider that the processing of personal data concerning you infringes the GDPR or UK GDPR.
- Although we will try to comply with this request, we cannot guarantee technical compatibility with a third party organisation"s systems. We are also unable to comply with requests relating to personal information of other individuals without their consent.
Please note that we require proof of your identity before we can process any of the above requests.
