3. Collection of Information
4. Use of Information Collected
The main purposes for which we use your personal information are: a. To communicate with you. If you send us an e-mail or communicate with us online or via social media, we process your data to respond to you. b. For statistical research. We use automatic tools (such as cookies) to perform statistical research into general trends regarding the use of this website and the behavior of the website’s visitors to improve this website. c. For record keeping and to comply with statutory obligations. We collect, store and use your data for internal business purposes, such as record keeping and to comply with our legal and fiscal obligations. d. To process your order. If you place an order on this website, we work on your data to process your order.
5. Legal Basis
We collect, use and store your personal data to comply with the legal obligations we are subject to, if necessary for our legitimate interests or the interests of a third party, for the execution of an agreement, or on the basis of your consent. If we process your personal data on the basis of your consent, you may withdraw your consent at any time by following the specific instructions in relation to the processing for which you provided your consent, by adjusting your settings (if available) or by contacting us (please see par. 9 ‘Your Rights’ below). If you refuse to provide personal data that we require for the execution of an agreement or compliance with a legal obligation, we may not be able to provide all or parts of the products or services you have requested from us. For example, when you lost the order details of an order you placed in the past and refuse to provide information related to this order, we may not be able to provide you with a copy of the agreement because we are not able to find the order in our systems. When we process your personal data for our legitimate interests or the interests of a third party, we have balanced these interests against your legitimate interests. Where necessary we have taken appropriate measures to limit implications and prevent unwarranted harm to you. Our legitimate interests may, for example, include security and safety purposes, to improve this website, or to provide better products and offers to you. For more information on these interests, please see the purposes, for which we process your personal data above. More information on the balancing tests we perform is available upon request. Where we process your personal data for our legitimate interests or the third-party interests, you have the right to object at any time on grounds relating to your particular situation (please see par. 9 ‘Your Rights’ below). Where we process your personal data for a purpose other than that for which we collected it initially (and we rely on a legal basis other than consent or complying with legal obligations for this new purpose), we will ascertain whether processing for this new purpose is compatible with the purpose for which the personal data were initially collected. More information on this assessment is available upon request (please see par. 9 ‘Your Rights’ below).
6. Information Sharing
Generally, we do not sell or share your personal data with anyone outside the FinanceCurrent group. However, we do disclose or share data with the following categories of recipients for the following purposes. a. For the support services we involve. We use third parties for support services to this website, such as IT suppliers (for example, SalesForce CRM system for processing your orders), social network providers, marketing agencies, credit and charge card companies and anti-fraud screening service providers. All such third parties will be required to adequately safeguard your personal data and only process it by following our instructions. b. Statistical research. For statistical research we make use of third-party software such as Google Analytics or social media platforms. These platforms also have access to the data they collect. For example, when you accept cookies for this website, we analyze cookie data for statistical research via Google Analytics. c. Group companies. When you use one of our services, it is possible that we share data with one of our group companies. For example, when you send us an e-mail about a subject that falls under the responsibility of one of our subsidiaries, we will forward your question to the correct subsidiary. d. Ownership of FinanceCurrent changes. If ownership of FinanceCurrent changes as a result of a merger, acquisition, transfer, sale of assets, reorganization or bankruptcy your personal data may be transferred to the successor entity. e. Public authorities. If we are required to by law, we also collect and share your identifying information with public authorities or governmental organizations. Third-party websites. This website contains links to third-party websites; if you follow these links, you exit our website. While these third-party websites are selected with care, we cannot accept liability for the use of your personal data by these organizations. For more information, please consult the privacy statement of the website you are visiting (if such a statement is provided).
7. Security and Retention
8. International Transfer of Your Data
FinanceCurrent may transfer your personal data to countries other than your country of residence (including countries outside the European Economic Area). International transferring occurs in the course of providing your services or because our group companies, partners or service providers have operations in countries across the world. The laws of these countries may not afford the same level of protection to your personal data. In the course of providing your services or because our group companies, partners or service providers have operations in countries across the world, we may transfer your personal data to Georgia, China, Russia, United Arab Emirates, Ukraine, the United Kingdom and United States of America. The European Commission has determined that certain countries outside the European Union offer an adequate level of data protection (see article 45 General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)). FinanceCurrent ensures that adequate safeguards are in place to comply with the requirements for the international transfer of personal data under applicable privacy laws. For transfers of personal data outside the European Economic Area, FinanceCurrent may use European Commission approved Standard Contractual Clauses as safeguards (see article 46 General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)).
