Hitachi Privacy Notice and Credit Check

The personal information we collect from you will be shared with fraud prevention agencies who will use it to prevent fraud and money-laundering and to verify your identity. If fraud is detected, you could be refused certain services, finance or employment. Further details of how your information will be used by us and these fraud prevention agencies, and your data protection rights, can be found by visiting www.CIFAS.org.uk

In order to process your application, we will perform credit and identity checks on you with one or more credit reference agencies (“CRAs”). We will also retain and use your information to improve our products and services. Where you take services from us we may also make periodic searches at CRAs to manage your account with us during the life of that account.

To do this, we will supply your personal information to CRAs and they will give us information about you. This will include information from your credit application and about your financial situation and financial history. CRAs will supply to us both public (including the electoral register) and shared credit, financial situation and financial history information and fraud prevention information.

We will use this information to:

  • Assess your creditworthiness and whether you can afford to take the product;
  • Verify the accuracy of the data you have provided to us;
  • Prevent criminal activity, fraud and money laundering;
  • Manage your account(s);
  • Trace and recover debts;
  • Ensure any offers provided to you are appropriate to your circumstances; and
  • Improve our products and services

We will continue to exchange information about you with CRAs while you have a relationship with us. We will also inform the CRAs about your settled accounts. If you borrow and do not repay in full and on time, CRAs will record the outstanding debt. This information may be supplied to other organisations by CRAs. When CRAs receive a search from us they will place a search footprint on your credit file that may be seen by other lenders.

If you tell us that you have a spouse or financial associate, we will link your records together, so you should make sure you discuss this with them, and share with them this information, before lodging the application. CRAs will also link your records together and these links will remain on your and their files until such time as you or your partner successfully files for a disassociation with the CRAs to break that link.

The identities of the CRAs, their role also as fraud prevention agencies, the data they hold, the ways in which they use and share personal information, data retention periods and your data protection rights with the CRAs are explained in more detail at www.hitachicapital.co.uk/CRAIN.

This is also accessible from each of the three CRAs:

Callcredit www.callcredit.co.uk

Equifax www.equifax.co.uk

Experian www.experian.co.uk

If you fail to make repayments at the time required by the agreement, Hitachi Capital will add details of your default to your record with the credit reference agencies. This could affect your credit rating and make it more difficult or more expensive for you to obtain credit in future. Hitachi Capital may also charge you default interest, at the rate applicable to your agreement, and charges to cover our administration costs, details of which will be outlined in the Pre-Contract Credit Information which we will provide if your application is approved. Missing payments could result in legal proceedings being taken against you and you may have to pay the costs of such proceedings.

What our customers say

Much Admired

We are very pleased with the installation. It has been much admired. Mrs D, Kent

Yes we are very pleased with the doors and would recommend them. Initial contact was done by our neighbour at Kingswood so cannot comment, however, the price we were initially quoted was incorrect and significantly lower than it turned out to be. Not sure why. We at Derwent only had a verbal quotation. The installation

Work ethic simply cannot be doubted

Can I also thank your fitting team for turning out in atrocious weather that day, their work ethic simply cannot be doubted, please pass on our thanks to them and everyone involved for the service we have received. The doors look fantastic and we hope to add a third set, perhaps later this year.

Mr & Mrs A @ Poole

Delighted with the new doors – they have exceeded our expectations. Customer service from initial contact to installation was excellent. Staff are professional, helpful and friendly. Would recommend.   We would like to be on your list of completed installations as viewing the doors at Weymouth was so helpful in making the decision to order

Really Thrilled

We are really thrilled with our doors and the whole process carried out by yourselves. Thank you so much again. Mrs Newell 20160722

A sincere thank you to your installation team

We would like to say how pleased we are with our fabulous new FGC doors and conservatory.  We thought the transformation would be great, but it’s only once they’re in that we’ve been able to see the full glory of the design – and our view!  We’ve had all the making-good done now, taken off

A talking point up and down the village

Glass Curtains have caused a talking point up and down the village but nobody has knocked on the door yet. We are very pleased with them and thank your teams for their timing and workmanship

On all occasions their service and personal was ultra professional, along with top quality products. I would highly recommend this company to anyone !

Superb service combined with outstanding designed product

In my view, the hallmark of something well designed is simplicity combined with good looks… FGC offer this in spades. Having looked at literally hundreds of bi-folding doors, we were struck by how straightforward the FGC product is – and, as far as it is possible to eliminate the frame except around the exterior of

The most stylish doors!

We first saw FGC at the Grand Designs exhibition in the autumn of last year (2019). We have had frameless glass doors and windows fitted to our house extension and they look fabulous from inside and outside, and make the rooms extremely light. Opening these doors is quick and easy. The service has been attentive

It’s nearly a year since you installed our glass curtains. They have been really great, exceeding our expectations, particularly during the winter months when they were absolutely draught free. When they are fully open you really feel that the lounge is part of the garden, it all becomes one space. Many thanks, they were one
