On the technical side, for example, we maintain a layer of separation between the customers’ access front-end instances and the administrative back-end.

We use secure web connections (HTTPS) to route data requests including payment transactions to the correct back-end service, and we have an architectural set-up which with aids intrusion prevention.

We will only retain Personal Data for as long as necessary to fulfil the purposes we collected it for, including for the purposes of complying with any legal, accounting, and/or reporting obligations.

To determine the appropriate retention period, we consider the amount, nature and sensitivity of the personal data, the potential risk of harm from its unauthorised use or disclosure, the purposes for which we process it, and whether we can achieve those purposes through other means, and the applicable legal requirements.

In some circumstances we may anonymise your personal data (so that it can no longer be associated with you) for research or statistical purposes, in which case we may use this information indefinitely without further notice to you.

14. Your data protection rights

We may need to ask you for specific information to help us confirm your identity and to ensure your right to access your personal data or exercise any of your other rights.

When you apply for a card, we, or our partners on our behalf, collect the following information from you: full name, physical address, email address, mobile phone number, phone number, date of birth, gender, login details, IP address, identity and address verification documents.

When you use your card to make transactions, we store that transactional and financial information.

How is your personal data used?

We use your personal data to:

– set up your account, including processing your application for a card, creating your account, verifying your identity and printing your card.

– maintain and administer your account, including processing your financial payments, processing the correspondence between us, monitoring your account for fraud and providing a secure internet environment for the transmission of our services.

– comply with our regulatory requirements, including anti-money laundering obligations.

– improve our services, including creating anonymous data from your personal data for analytical use, including for the purposes of training, testing and system development.

  • 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 Data 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 Data 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 Data. 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.

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.

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 Data, 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.
