What type of information we collect?

Personal Information

The first type of information we collect is individually identifiable information, namely information that identifies an individual or may with reasonable effort identify an individual (“Personal Information”).

Account information: When you use our Services to open an account (e.g. either directly via our website or through a landing page that is available on an affiliate’s website) you will be asked to provide Personal Information to us. The Personal information we collect through our Services includes information which is submitted directly by the user, such as: full name; e-mail address; home address; date of birth; phone number; payment means (e.g. credit card number); and other financial information that we may need in order to provide our Services.

Voluntarily Information: We may collect information which you provide to us voluntarily. For instance, when you respond to forms of communication from us, discuss with us via email, Live chat or share additional information about yourself through your use of the Services. We may also collect the feedback, suggestions, complaints and reports which you send to us.

Device information: We may also collect Personal Information from your device, such as your IP address, Geolocation, and your device’ unique identifiers (e.g. MAC addresses, UUID, etc.).

Non-Personal Information

The second type of information we collect is un-identified and non-identifiable information pertaining to a user(s), which may be made available or gathered via your use of the Services (“Non-personal Information”). We are not aware of the identity of the user from whom the Non-personal Information was collected. Non-personal Information which is being collected may include your aggregated usage information and technical information transmitted by your device, including certain software and hardware information (e.g. the type of browser and operating system your device uses, language preference, access time and the domain name of the website from which you linked to the Services; etc.), in order to enhance the functionality of our Services.
