Use of Personal Data

a. Our Services

We rely upon several legal grounds to ensure that our use of your Personal Data is compliant with the applicable law. We use Personal Data to facilitate the business relationships we have with our Users, to comply with legal obligations, and to pursue our legitimate business interests.

Contractual and pre-contractual business relationships. We use Personal Data to enter business relationships with prospective Users and to perform the contractual obligations under the contacts that we have with Users. Activities that we conduct in this context include:

Legal and regulatory compliance. We use Personal Data to verify the identity of our Users in order to comply with laws. These obligations are imposed on us by the operation of law, industry standards, and by our financial partners, and may require us to report our compliance to third parties and to submit to third-party verification audits.

Legitimate business interests. We rely on our legitimate business interests to process certain Personal Data concerning you. The following list sets out the business purposes that we have identified as legitimate. In determining the content of this list, we balanced our interests against the legitimate interests and rights of the individuals whose Personal Data we process.

Where required by applicable law, we will obtain your consent prior to processing your information for interest-based advertising.

Ad networks allow us to target our messaging to users based on a range of factors, including demographic data, users’ inferred interests, and browsing context (for example, the time and date of your visit to our Platform, the pages that you viewed, and the links that you clicked). This technology also helps us track the effectiveness of our marketing efforts and understand if you have seen one of our advertisements.

We work with advertising networks (Google AdWords, Facebook, etc.).
