The information we collect
The types of information that we collect include the following:
In order to complete any applications or deals that you make, we may need to know your name, mailing address, debit card details, and other related information. This is to allow us to complete your transactions and also to provide confirmation of the transactions to you.
We also use the information we collect in order to inform you about changes to our client services and, occasionally, we may send you other information as part of agreed services, or which we think may be useful to you. If you inform us that you do not wish to receive other, additional information we do not send it to you.
Disclosure of information
We will not disclose your personal information to third parties, except as described in this statement. Third party disclosures may include sharing such information with non-affiliated companies that perform support services for your account, or facilitate your transactions with this company. Such third parties include those that provide professional, legal, or accounting advice to us. Non-affiliated companies that assist us in providing services to you are required to maintain the confidentiality of such information to the extent they receive it, and to use your personal information only in the course of providing such services and only for the purposes that this company dictates.
We may also disclose your personal information to fulfil your instructions, to protect our rights and interests, or following your express consent. Finally, under limited circumstances, your personal information may be disclosed to third parties as permitted by, or to comply with, applicable laws and regulations. For instance, when responding to proceedings of a court of law (or similar legal process), to protect against fraud, and to otherwise cooperate with law enforcement or regulatory authorities.
