Privacy Notice


We are N Hunter Ltd (NHL) who operate the National Hunter data sharing system and we can be contacted by e-mail at

We are a membership organisation which facilitates the sharing of data in order to prevent fraud.

Before our members provide services, goods or financing to you, they undertake checks for the purposes of preventing fraud and money laundering, and to verify your identity. These checks require our members to process personal data about you.

The personal data you have provided, the member has collected from you, or has been received from third parties will be used to prevent fraud and money laundering, and to verify your identity.

What our members process and share

The personal data you have provided and we have received from our members may include your:

  • name
  • date of birth
  • residential address and address history
  • contact details such as email address and telephone numbers
  • financial information
  • employment details
  • identifiers assigned to your computer or other internet connected device including your Internet Protocol (IP) address
  • vehicle details

Our members, and NHL, may also enable law enforcement agencies to access and use your personal data to detect, investigate and prevent crime. We may also obtain information from other sources, including our members, law enforcement agencies, public sector and regulatory bodies.

When our members or NHL process your personal data, it is done so on the basis that they/we have a legitimate interest in preventing fraud and money laundering, and to verify identity, in order to protect their business and to comply with laws that apply to us. Such processing is also a contractual requirement of the services or financing you have requested.

National Hunter can hold your personal data for different periods of time, and if you are considered to pose a fraud or money laundering risk, your data can be held for up to six years.

Automated Decisions

As part of the processing of your personal data, decisions may be made by automated means. This means members may automatically decide that you pose a fraud or money laundering risk or if their processing reveals your behaviour to be consistent with that of known fraudsters or money launderers: or is consistent with your previous submissions; or you appear to have deliberately hidden your true identity. You have rights in relation to automated decision making: if you want to know more please contact the member direct.

Consequences of processing

If our members determine that you pose a fraud or money laundering risk, they may refuse to provide the services and financing you have requested, or to employ you, or they may stop providing existing services to you.

A record of any fraud or money laundering risk will be retained by National Hunter, and may result in others refusing to provide services, financing or employment to you. If you have any questions about this, please contact us on the details above.

Data Transfers

Fraud prevention agencies may allow the transfer of your personal data outside of the UK. This may be to a country where the UK Government has decided that your data will be protected to UK standards, but if the transfer is to another type of country, then the fraud prevention agencies will ensure your data continues to be protected by ensuring appropriate safeguards are in place.

Please note National Hunter rules currently do not allow for processing National Hunter data outside of the UK and European Economic area.

Your rights

Your personal data is protected by legal rights, which may include rights to:

  • object to our processing of your personal data.
  • request that your personal data is erased, rectified or corrected; or that processing is restricted.
  • request access to your personal data.

For more information or to exercise your data protection rights please, contact us using the contact details above.

If you are unhappy about how your personal data has been used please refer to our complaints policy.You also have a right to complain to the Information Commissioner's Office which regulates the processing of personal data.
