Update: last update April 2016
This Policy governs your use of products, services, content, features, technologies or functions offered by us and all related sites, applications, and services (collectively “Payment Services”) (including, without limitation, when you provide any information in relation to your use of Payment Services).
In order to operate the Payment Services and to reduce the risk of fraud, we, as the data controller, must ask you to provide us with information about yourself, including your credit or debit card and/or bank account details. You accept and consent to this Policy when you sign up for access or use of the Payment Services. By accepting and consenting to this Policy, you expressly consent to our use and disclosure of your personal information and direct us to do so in the manner described in this Policy.
This Policy describes the information we collect and how we use that information. We take the processing of your information very seriously and will use your information only in accordance with the terms of this Policy. For the purposes of this Policy, the term “Information” means any confidential and/or personally identifiable information, credit cards or other information provided and related to your use of Payment Services.
We will not sell or rent your Information to third parties for their marketing purposes without your explicit consent. However, in order for us to offer you the Payment Services; enhance the quality of the Payment Services from time to time; and protect your interests, we will in limited circumstances share some of your Information with third parties under strict restrictions, as described in more detail in this Policy.
Notification of Changes: This Policy may be revised over time as new features are added to the Payment Services or as we incorporate suggestions from our customers. We may change this Policy at any time by posting a revised version of it on our website. We will highlight the changes in red for 30 (thirty) days from date of change. As of the effective date of the revised Policy, you will be considered as having consented to all changes to it. Please check our website on a regular basis for the most current version of our Policy.
Third Party Websites: Some pages on our website include links to third-party websites. These sites are governed by their own privacy statements and we are not responsible for their operations including but not limited to their information practices. When submitting Information to or through these third-party websites you should review the privacy statements of these sites before providing them with your Information.
Not a Framework Contract: For the avoidance of doubt this Policy does not constitute a "framework contract" for the purpose of the EU Payment Services Directive (2007/64/EC) or any implementation of that directive in the European Union or EEA (including without limitation the UK Payment Services Regulations 2009).
A Special Note about Children: Children are not eligible to use our Payment Services and we ask that minors (persons under the age of 18) do not submit any Information to us or use the Payment Services.
2. INFORMATION WE COLLECT
Required Information: To use the Payment Services you must provide your name, address, phone number, and email address. In order to make payments through the Payment Services you must provide credit card, debit card or bank account information. We may also require other commercial and/or identification information in order for us to comply with our anti-money laundering obligations under European law.
Using your device: When you use the Payment Services using any device (whether connected to the Payment Services wirelessly or by a fixed line or otherwise), we may additionally collect and store device sign-on data (including but not limited to device ID) and geolocation data in order to provide the Payment Services.
Transaction Information: When you use the Payment Services to pay for an order we also collect the Internet address (IP address) and other identifying information about the computer or device you use to utilise the Payment Services, in order to help detect possible instances of unauthorised transactions.
Information about you from Third Parties or Other Sources: In order to protect all our customers against potential fraud, we may verify the Information you provide with payment processors and/or credit reference and fraud agencies. In the course of such verification we may receive personally identifiable information about you from such services. In particular if you register a credit card or debit card or bank account with the Payment Services we will use card authorization and fraud screening services to verify that your bank or card information and address match the information you supplied to us, and that the card has not been reported as lost or stolen. If you owe us money, we may conduct a credit check on you by obtaining additional information about you from a credit reference or fraud agency, to the extent permitted by law. We, at our sole discretion, reserve the right to periodically retrieve and review a consumer credit report supplied by such credit reference or fraud agency for any payment being processed, and reserve the right to deny processing of the payment based on information obtained during this credit review process.
We may also collect information about you from other sources including from members of our corporate family, other companies (subject to their privacy policies and applicable law.
Additional Verification: If we cannot verify any of the Information that you provide we may ask you to upload or send us additional information (such as your driving licence, credit card statement, and/or a recent utility bill, or other information linking you to the applicable address) or to answer additional questions online to help verify your Information.
Website Traffic Information: Because of the way Internet communication standards work when you arrive at or leave our website we automatically receive the web address of the site that you came from or are going to. We also collect information on which pages of our website you visit, IP addresses, the type of browser you use and the times you access our website.
Communications: When you communicate with us for customer service or other purposes (e.g., by emails, phone calls, tweets, etc.), we retain such information and our responses to you.
3. HOW WE USE INFORMATION COLLECTED
Internal Uses: We collect, store and process your information on servers located elsewhere in the world where our facilities are located. Our primary purpose in collecting your Information is to provide you with a safe, smooth, efficient, and customised experience. You agree that we may use your personal Information to:

5. HOW WE SHARE INFORMATION
When paying for your order through our Payment Services we may provide the Supplier of the product(s) or service(s) with the delivery address and your billing address to complete your transaction. The Supplier may share information about you with us such as your email address or phone number, when a refund is sent to you or when you are attempting to pay that Supplier. If an attempt to pay your Supplier fails, or is later invalidated, we may also provide your Supplier with details of the unsuccessful payment. To facilitate dispute resolutions we may provide you with the Supplier’s address so that goods can be returned to them. Please note that Suppliers may have their own privacy policies and we are not responsible for their operations including but not limited to their business practices.
We may also share with other users the fact that you are within local reach as a customer. If you do not want this information to be shared you can access, view and control the settings for any such data on your mobile device.
By accepting this Policy you expressly agree and consent that each time you pay or attempt to pay a Supplier using the Payment Services that we may transfer the aforementioned relevant data to such Supplier who may be located outside the European Economic Area (“EEA”), in order to process, execute or otherwise deal with and provide information about the payment.
Just like most banks or financial/payment service providers we work with third-party service providers which provide important functions to us that allow us to be an easier, faster, and safer way to make payments, and other business partners. We need to disclose user data to them from time to time so that certain services can be performed. By accepting this Policy and processing your payments via the Payment Services you expressly consent to the transfer of your data to those third parties for the purposes listed.
We will not sell or rent any of your personal information to third parties for their marketing purposes without your explicit consent, and will only disclose this information in the limited circumstances and for the purposes described in this Policy. This includes transfers of data to non-EEA member states. We do not tolerate spam. To report any spam, please contact us immediately using the contact details below.
Specifically, you consent to us to do any and all of the following with your information:

- We and other organisations, including parties that accept the Payment Services, may also share, access and use (including from other countries) necessary information (including, without limitation the information recorded by fraud prevention agencies) to help us and them assess and to manage risk (including, without limitation, to prevent fraud, money laundering and terrorist financing).

- i. Fraud Prevention and Risk Management: to help prevent fraud or assess and manage risk.
