  1. Child consent procedure

    Generally, The Right Advice does not need to collect a lot of information on children, as The Right Mortgage Ltd’s customers are usually adults. Sometimes there is a need to store and process child data from customers to provide protection and mortgage products. Please refer to our Children’s Privacy Policy here for full details.
