  1. Data Collection

Personal data, or personal information, means any information about an individual from which that person can be identified. It does not include data where the identity has been removed (anonymous data).

We may collect, use, store and transfer different kinds of personal data about you which may include:

  • Details of your marketing communication preferences from us and our third parties (Marketing Data).

We may also collect, use and share Aggregated Data such as statistical or demographic data for any purpose. Aggregated Data may be derived from your personal data but is not considered personal data in law as this data does not directly or indirectly reveal your identity. For example, we may use this information to determine how our users engage with our website or access specific features.

We do not collect any special categories of personal data about you (this includes details about your race or ethnicity, religious or philosophical beliefs, sex life, sexual orientation, political opinions, trade union membership, information about your health, genetic and biometric data). Nor do we collect any information about criminal convictions or offences.

Your duty to inform us of changes

It is important that the personal data we hold about you is accurate and current. Please keep us informed of any changes to your personal data during your relationship with us.

If you fail to provide us personal data

Where we need to collect personal data by law, or under terms of a contract we have with you and you fail to provide that data when requested, we may not be able to perform the contract we have or are trying to enter into with you (for example, to provide you with products or services). In this case, we may have to cancel a product or service you have with us, but we will notify you if this is the case at the time.

  1. How your personal data is collected

We use different methods to collect data from you and about you including through:

  • Service providers who may provide us with Identity, Contact and Payment Data.

 

  1. How do we use your personal data and the lawful basis for our use?  

We will only use your personal data when we have a lawful basis for doing so. We have explained below each lawful basis for using your personal data, and the purposes for which we use your personal data.

Performance of a contract: we need to use your personal information, such as Identity Data, Contact Data and Financial Data for the purposes of performing a contract you have entered into with us.

 

Necessary for our legitimate interests: we use your personal data for ongoing business purposes, for example we may use your Identity, Contact, Usage and Technical Data to understand our customers, develop our products and services and to ensure that content from our website is presented in the most effective manner for you and for your computer

 

Compliance with a legal obligation: we use your Identity, Contact and Marketing and Communications Data to comply with various legal obligations including ensuring that you do not receive marketing communications from us in circumstances where you have advised us that you do not wish to receive those communications.

If you would like further information about the specific lawful basis we rely on when using your personal data, please contact us. Generally, we do not rely on consent as a legal basis for processing your personal data other than in relation to sending third party direct marketing communications to you via email. You have the right to withdraw consent to marketing at any time by contacting us using the details set above.

Marketing

We aim to provide you with choices regarding certain personal data uses, particularly around marketing and advertising. As part of our ongoing marketing activity, we may use your personal data in the following ways:

  • Promotions: We may use your Identity, Contact, Usage and Profile Data to form a view on what we think you may want, need or may be of interest to you. We do this in order to provide you with relevant investment opportunities.

 

You will receive marketing communications from us if you have requested information from us, made previous investments with us or if you have provided us with your details in order to receive marketing promotions and in each case you have not opted out of receiving marketing communications from us.

 

  • Third Party Marketing: We will get your express opt-in consent before we share your personal data with a third party for marketing purposes.

 

  • Opting Out: You can ask us or third parties to stop sending you marketing messages at any time by contacting us or by following the opt-out links on any marketing messages sent to you. Where you opt out of receiving these marketing messages, this will not apply to personal data provided to us as a result of a product/service purchase or experience or any other transactions.

Change of Purpose

We will only use your personal data for the purposes for which we collected it, unless we reasonably consider that we need to use it for another reason and that reason is compatible with the original purpose. If you wish to get an explanation as to how the processing for the new purpose is compatible with the original purpose, please contact us.

If we need to use your personal data for an unrelated purpose, we will notify you and we will explain the legal basis which allows us to do so. Please note that we may process your personal data without your knowledge or consent, in compliance with the above rules, where this is permitted or required by law.

  1. Disclosures of Personal Data

As part of fulfilling our contractual obligations we may have to share your personal data with third party processors which includes service providers acting as processers; professional advisers acting as processors or joint controllers such as lawyers, auditors and insurers.

In addition, we may share personal data with third parties to whom we may choose to sell, transfer, or merge parts of our business or our assets. Alternatively, we may seek to acquire other business or merge with them. If a change happens to our business, then the new owners may use your personal data in the same way as set out in this privacy policy.

We require all third parties to respect the security of your personal data and to treat it in accordance with the law. We do not allow our third-party service providers to use your personal data for their own purposes and only permit them to process your personal data for specified purposes and in accordance with our instructions.

  1. International Transfers

We share your personal data across the Okyo business which involves transferring your data outside the European Economic Area (EEA) to our associated companies in the US. In addition, many of our external third parties are based outside the EEA so their processing of your personal data will involve a transfer of data outside the EEA.

Whenever we transfer your personal data outside of the EEA, we ensure a similar degree of protection is afforded to it by ensuring one of the appropriate safeguards set out in Article 46 of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is provided.

  1. Data Security

We have put in place appropriate security measures to prevent your personal data from being accidentally lost, used or accessed in an unauthorised way, altered or disclosed. In addition, we limit access to your personal data to those employees, agents, contactors and other third parties who have a business need to know. They will only process your personal data on our instructions and they are subject to a duty of confidentiality.

We have put in place procedures to deal with any suspected personal data breach and will notify you and any applicable regulator of a breach where we are legally required to do so.

  1. Data Retention

We will only retain your personal data for as long as necessary to fulfil the purposes we collected it for, including for the purposes of satisfying any legal, accounting or reporting requirements.

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

In some circumstances you can ask us to delete your personal data (see EU Data Protection Rights below).  

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.

  1. EU Data Protection Rights

Under EU data protection laws, individuals have the following rights in relation to your personal information (referred to as personal data for the purposes of EU data protection legislation:

  • Request access to your personal data: This enables you to receive a copy of the personal data we hold about you and to check that we are lawfully processing it.

  • Request correction of personal data that we hold about you: This enables you to have any incomplete or inaccurate information we hold about you corrected. Please note, we may need to verify the accuracy of any new details you provide.

  • Request erasure of your personal data: This enables you to ask us to delete personal data where there is no good reason for us continuing to process it. This may also apply where you have successfully exercised your right to object to processing (see below), where we may have processed your data unlawfully or where we are required to delete your personal data to comply with local law. Please note, however, that we may not always be able to comply with your request for erasure for specific legal reasons which will be notified to you, if applicable, at the time of your request.

  • Object to processing: This enables you to object to processing of your personal data where we are relying on a legitimate interest (or those of a third party) and there is something about your personal situation which makes you want to object to processing on this ground. You also have the right to object where we are processing your personal data for direct marketing purposes.

  • Right to withdraw consent: You may withdraw consent at any time where we are relying on consent to process your personal data. However, this will not affect the lawfulness of any processing carried out before you withdraw your consent. If you withdraw your consent, we may not be able to provide certain products or services to you. We will advise you if this is the case at the time you withdraw your consent.

  • Request to transfer data: This enables you to request the transfer of your personal data to you or a third party. We will transfer the data in a structured, commonly used, machine readable format. This right applies only in respect of automated information which you initially provided consent for us to use or where we used the information to perform a contract with you.

If you wish to exercise any of the above rights, please contact us using the details provided below. Under EU data protection legislation, you have the right to make a complaint at any time to the relevant supervisory authority for data protection issues in your jurisdiction. A full list of the data protection authorities can be found at http://ec.europa.eu/justice/article-29/structure/data-protection-authorities/index_en.htm.
