An identifiable natural person is one who can be identified, directly or indirectly by reference to an identifier such as a name, an identification number, location data, an online identifier or to one or more factors specific to the physical, physiological, genetic, mental, economic, cultural or social identity. We collect the following data:

Additional data required by money laundering and terrorist financing prevention legislation (personal identification number and/or date of birth, citizenship, facial image, video and sound recording of the verification process, identity document data, copies of the documents provided, details of the device used, IP address, etc.).
  3. Transaction data (transaction amount, date and time, beneficiary or sender, etc.).
  4. Your communication with us (correspondence by email or using messaging feature, conversations by phone, etc.).
  5. App login and usage data (User name, IP address, general geographic location, usage statistics, etc.).

In most cases you yourself provide us with your personal data:

  2. When using our services (e.g., data on the transactions you make).
  3. When communicating with us (customer service, interactions via social media platform, etc.).

We may also receive your data from other sources:

  2. In order to carry out enhanced due diligence procedures we also collect publicly available information about you (information on the internet, social media, etc.). If you give us personal data about other people (e. g., spouse, family members, etc.), you confirm that you have provided them with all the information regarding the processing of personal data.

Legal basis and purposes of processing of personal data

Processing of your personal data is based on one of the following legal grounds:

  3. Legal obligation. We are obliged to process certain personal data according to the legal acts applicable to us (e. g., for purposes of prevention of money laundering and terrorist financing, fraud or other crime, for tax and accounting, etc.).
  4. Legitimate interest. Where we have justification for the processing, it is necessary to achieve our goals and is balanced against your fundamental rights and freedoms.

Profiling

Transfer of personal data outside of the EEA

Where it might be necessary to transfer your personal data to third countries, we shall ensure that appropriate protection measures are applied. We shall use legal mechanism, such as standard contractual clauses as indicated in GDPR to implement the cross-border transfer of your personal data or implement security measures like anonymization on the data before the cross-border data transfer. In case the securities transaction is related to foreign securities, we may have an obligation to transfer your data to third parties in foreign countries to ensure the provision of the services, as well as for purposes related to the supervisory activities carried out by the foreign regulators or supervisory authorities (such as investigative bodies, financial market supervisory authorities, tax administrators, etc.).
