    You can only use our services if you meet the above requirements.

    • we think your use of our services is unlawful or you breach Our Acceptable Use Policy (detailed at the end of these terms and conditions); or

    4.Your Budget

    In order to give you a picture of your spending, debt and how much you may afford to repay your creditors, we need access to (i) your credit report and credit score from credit reference agencies and (ii) financial information from your bank. 

    Your financial information

    We need access to financial information from your bank accounts to be able to build an accurate picture of your income and expenditure to make sure you can afford your repayments. The easiest way to do this is by signing up with our Open Banking Provider; they enable you to share your financial information with us securely and directly from your bank account (see section 6 below for more details).  Otherwise you will need to manually enter your financial information.

    5. Our partners

    We have teamed up with innovative companies like Openwrks, our Open Banking Provider,[1] to provide you with our Services.

    Openwrks is a data platform, authorised and regulated by the FCA under reference number 709589. We use OpenWrks to enable you to share your financial information with us securely and directly from your bank account so we can understand your income and expenditure as part of building your Tully budget without you having to manually upload your bank statements.  OpenWrks' terms and conditions can be found here.
