This privacy notice explains how we use your personal data, how it is collected, how it is held, and how it is processed.
We may collect some or all of the following personal data when you sign up and create an account. The following information may be collected and stored for administrative, service related, and/or legal purposes. Please note that the list is not exhaustive:
We may process your information for the following reasons:
We will not keep your personal data for any longer than is necessary in light of the reasons for which it was first collected.
According to the anti-money laundering directive, Monerium must retain documents and information about you which are necessary to comply with due diligence requirements for the period of five years after the end of our business relationship. Under the Electronic Money Regulations from 2013, Electronic Money Institutions must keep certain records for seven years. We, therefore, use this precondition for some personal data that we receive from you.
We will only store and transfer your personal data within the European Economic Area (the “EEA“) or to secure third countries which the European Commission has confirmed to have adequate level of data protection. The EEA consists of all EU member states, plus Norway, Iceland, and Liechtenstein. This means that your personal data will be fully protected under the GDPR or to equivalent standards by law.
We share your personal data with the Monerium group of companies, the suppliers we use, our partners who help us to provide our services, and with relevant fraud prevention agencies.
In some circumstances, we may be legally required to share certain personal data in order to comply with any legal or regulatory obligations or requests.
We will share your personal data with your consent or direction in order to comply with your rights to data portability for example if you authorize an account connection with a third-party account or platform.
If you choose to know what personal data we hold, you can ask us for details of that personal data and for a copy of it. This is known as a subject access request and is available to you on our web feature.
Normally we don’t charge for a subject access request but a fee may be charged to cover administrative costs if the request is excessive. We will respond to your subject access request within one month of receiving it.
We may change this Privacy Notice from time to time. This may be necessary to comply with relevant legislation or if our business changes in a way that affects personal data protection. The revised Privacy will be effective as of the published effective date.
If the revised version includes a substantial change, we will provide you with 30 days prior notice via email.
