1.1 How we collect your personal information
We collect two types of information about you: (1) personally-identifiable information provided by you to us as well as information we learn about you from your use of our services and the App; and (2) information we collect that allows us to understand and optimise the operation of the App, which cannot be used to identify you.
We collect personally-identifiable information about you only when you specifically give it to us. We may also collect information relating to the transactions you carry out, including details of any bank accounts you transact to and from the App. We do not generally disclose this information to third parties except in the circumstances set out in Section 1.5 below.

We may send marketing information to you in relation to promotions that we run from time to time or service offerings we consider may be of interest to you.
Third party providers will not be permitted to market to you directly in connection with other services they offer. In the event that you receive any such marketing communication that you have not specifically requested you should let us know immediately.
1.4 Protecting your personal information
The transmission of information via the Internet is not completely secure. We will do our best to protect your personal information while it is in our possession, however, we cannot guarantee the security of your data transmitted online or over the App.
We recognise industry standards and employ security safeguards to protect personally identifiable information from unauthorised access and misuse. All information you provide to us is stored on secure servers. Any payment transactions will be protected and safeguarded by encryption.

• if required to do so by law, a court order or by a regulatory authority of competent jurisdiction or if we believe that such disclosure is necessary, to protect, defend or enforce our rights. This includes exchanging information with other companies and organisations for the purposes of fraud protection and credit risk reduction.
