The Terms and Conditions are the agreement between you and us relating to the use of your credit card.
APR stands for Annual Percentage Rate of charge. The APR makes it easy to compare different credit products before deciding which one is best for you.
For credit cards the APR is based on the purchase interest rate and includes things like annual fees, although cash withdrawal charges and default fees are not included.
Your credit limit is the amount that you can borrow up to with your Capital One credit card.
The Minimum Payment is the least amount you need to send us each month. It is shown on your statement. Think carefully about paying only the minimum each month. If you choose to only make minimum repayments each month, it will take longer and cost you more to pay off the balance.
The minimum payment is the full outstanding balance if it is less than £5, but otherwise the greater of:
An amount equal to the total of
(i) 1% of the outstanding balance on your account;
(ii) interest applied to your account in that month;
(iii) all Default Sums incurred in that month;
and (iv) one twelfth of your Annual Fee, or £5
Please see your terms and conditions for more information.

who are the three major credit reference agencies in the UK. They supply us with information about your credit history. We need your permission to look at your credit file which you give to us by clicking the submit button on your application form.

The financial information held about you at the credit reference agencies can help you do many things, such as taking out a loan, applying for a mortgage or even getting a mobile phone. Most companies that provide credit take your previous credit history into account.
