It is a requirement under the Anti-Money Laundering and Counter-Terrorism Financing Act 2006 (“the Act”) for us to identify you pursuant to the provisions of the Act and Rules made under the Act. Division 5A of Part 2 of the Act allows, in certain circumstances, that verification to be undertaken electronically (“e-verification”) by matching certain personal information you supply to us with personal information held by credit reporting agencies. We wish to be able to use that system to verify you. We cannot do so without your consent.
By agreeing to us undertaking e-verification you are expressly agreeing to allow us to verify your identity against personal information held by a credit reporting agency.
The Act permits us to disclose to a credit reporting agency for identification verification purposes all or any of your name, address and date of birth. The credit reporting agency:-
You are advised that if you do not wish us to verify your identity through e- verification, then we will provide you with another option to identify yourself in accordance with the provisions of the Act which will involve the production of documents by you to us.
If you consent to us using e-verification, and the identification is not successful, we will advise you:-
I/we acknowledge and consent to you supplying to a credit reporting agency my/our name, address and date of birth to enable you to verify my/our identity through e-verification procedure contained in Division 5A of Part 2 of the Anti-Money Laundering and Counter-Terrorism Financing Act 2006 .
