What it is?
It is the record of an individuals ability to repay debt that is based on the past history of the persons borrowing and repaying in conjunction with the entitys availability of assents and income to pay off future debt.

Where can you obtain your credit rating from?


Credit Rating Agencies such as Baycorp and Veda Advantage can provide one with their credit worthiness value.

Since a database is a collection of related data to a particular subject, credit rating agencies utilise databases to record data on an individuals credit rating details (such as past debt, whether they are punctual in paying off credit card debt) and personal information that allows credit rating companies to identify the individual. Databases are used to store data on an entity through the use of different fields containing information on the individual to formulate their credit score.

Some of the data included in a credit rating database for an entity are: Full Name Ones interest charged Debt that needs to be paid (This is amount of money needed to be paid for its use.) Amount of credit used (This is amount of money used from borrowing) Ones saving patterns (This is person's abilities to save money and repaying money) Rating of payment of loans (This is in percentage, if its high then you have more spending money)

Someone can use previous good credit rate for before and bank would still let them borrow if an agencys credit rating database is not up-to-date. A person managing credit rating databases may give away a clients personal details to a individual or organisation without the clients information. A employee from a credit rating agency may fool an individual to provide personal details that are not necessary to formulate one's credit score. Repair clinics have been set up to help one with bad credit rating. These so-called clinics offer to help you clean up your credit by using loopholes in the law that only they know about. They may also promise to remove negative information from your file or to get you a major credit card. These are false promises.

In Simple Terms.
WHY? Under the Federal Privacy Act 1988, credit rating agencies (they manage the databases) MUST ADHERE TO A STRICT CONDUCT. If conduct is BREACHED, PENALTIES OCCUR.

WHAT ARE THE LEGAL RESPONSIBILITIES OF THOSE MANAGING THE DATABASE?

LEGAL OBLIGATIONS Those in charge of modifying databases in credit rating agencies must make sure information on a individual is up-to-date, accurate and not-misleading.

Eg: Sally-Anne paid off her credit card debt 6 months ago, when she approaches Commonwealth Bank to get a loan, they inform her that her credit worthiness is not upto the standard the bank requires to lend out a loan. The inability for a credit rating agency to update their record has left Sally-Anne unable to obtain a loan.
Commonwealth Bank To: Sally Ann Loan: $15, 000

If this occurs, the Privacy Commissioner (that regulates credit rating agencies) can give out penalties such as fines and criminal records.
