At times, the processing may be necessary so that we can take certain steps, at your request, prior to entering into that contract, such as verifying your details or eligibility for the payment services. If you fail to provide the personal data which we request, we cannot enter into a contract to provide payment services to you or will take steps to terminate any contract which we have entered into with you.
We may also process your personal data to comply with our legal or regulatory obligations.
We, or a third party, may have a legitimate interest to process your personal data, for example:

- document destruction providers;
- anyone to whom we lawfully transfer or may transfer our rights and duties under this agreement;

- regulatory and law enforcement authorities, whether they are outside or inside of the EEA, where the law requires us to do so.
Sending personal data overseas
To deliver services to you, it is sometimes necessary for us to share your personal information outside the European Economic Area (EEA), e.g.:
- with service providers located outside the EEA;
- if you are based outside the EEA;
- where there is an international dimension to the services we are providing to you.
These transfers are subject to special rules under European and Gibraltar data protection law.
These non-EEA countries do not have the same data protection laws as Gibraltar and EEA. We will, however, ensure the transfer complies with data protection law and all personal information will be secure. We will send your data to countries where the European Commission has made an adequacy decision, meaning that it has ruled that the legislative framework in the country provides an adequate level of data protection for your personal information. You can find out more about this here.
Where we send your data to a country where the European Commission has not made an adequacy decision, our standard practice is to use standard data protection contract clauses that have been approved by the European Commission. To obtain a copy of those clauses, please go to the European Commission’s website.
We send your data to the United States of America. In relation to data transfers to the USA, please go to the Privacy Shield website in order to find out more about the EU Commission-approved safeguards in place.
If you would like further information please contact our Data Protection Officer on the details below.
How long do we store your personal data?
We will store your information for a period of five years after our business relationship ends in order that we can comply with our obligations under applicable legislation such as anti-money laundering and anti-fraud regulations. If any changes to applicable legislation require us to retain your data for a longer period of time, we shall retain it for that period. We will not retain your data for longer than is necessary.

How is your information protected?
We implement security policies and technical measures in order to secure your personal data and take steps to protect it from unauthorised access, use or disclosure.
While we strive to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee the security of any information you transmit to us, and you do so at your own risk. Once we receive your information, we make our best effort to ensure its security on our systems. Where we have given (or where you have chosen) a password which enables you to access certain parts of our websites, you are responsible for keeping this password confidential. We ask you not to share your password with anyone.
We hope that our Data Protection Officer can resolve any query or concern you may raise about our use of your personal information.
