We may make certain decisions in relation to our provision of our products and services to you by using automated decision-making processes, without human involvement.
· Lending decisions
When you apply for a loan, we shall use automated processing to decide whether to commence with the transaction or otherwise based on your eligibility for our products and services. This automated processing enables us to provide rapid, responsive and tailored credit services to customers who may not have credit histories, prior bank or other financial data or income from formal sources.
Our credit and underwriting models utilize machine-learning technology to process your Information and assess your credit-worthiness. The associated processing of your Information is automated and little to no human intervention is involved. Using such automated processes to assess your creditworthiness means we may automatically decide that you may be ineligible for a loan or ineligible for a loan of a particular amount or tenure. Our credit and underwriting models are regularly tested to ensure they remain fair, accurate and unbiased.
· Detecting fraud
U-Peso also utilizes automated processes to detect, combat and prevent fraud. Our fraud models may automatically decide that a certain individual poses a fraud or money laundering risk (e.g., if our processing reveals information or behavior consistent with money laundering or known fraudulent activity, if the activity is inconsistent with prior activity on our platform or if an individual appears to be hiding their true identity). If our fraud models determine that processing of a transaction or approving a certain individual creates a risk of fraud, that individual’s access may be suspended or refused.
·Your rights in relation to automated decision-making
In the event that your loan application is denied or your loan is declined, or you are found ineligible for other or associated products or services as a result of an automated credit, underwriting or fraud decision, you may request that said decision be reviewed through email@example.com.
You may contact us to exercise your rights at firstname.lastname@example.org.
