GENERAL PROVISIONS

Providing personal information is an act of trust and it is taken seriously. Unless given consent to do otherwise and/or otherwise permissible by and/or required by law, Viauty will only collect and use personal information as set out below.

Throughout this Privacy Policy, we refer to your “personal information” which is any information relating to you that can identify you, directly or indirectly, in particular by reference to an identifier such as a name, email address, an identification number, location data, or an online identifier.

We use the term “Designated Countries” to refer to countries in the European Union (EU), European Economic Area (EEA), and Switzerland.

PERSONAL INFORMATION THAT WE COLLECT

Viauty does not collect personal information beyond the limited data we need for you to perform our services to the customers.

Viauty collects personal information provided directly by the customer when the customer registers an account, and uses our services. We may receive the following personal information:

  • information provided by the customer during account registration, including, without limitation, personal details, user name, address, phone number and email address;
  • customer’s gender;
  • financial information provided by the customer during transactions, including, without limitation, bank account numbers;
  • location data;
  • any other personal information which you directly provide to Viauty; and
  • any other personal information requested or required by the Website.

We will only collect and process personal data about you where we have lawful bases. Lawful bases include consent (where you have given consent), contract and “legitimate interests”.

Where we rely on your consent to process personal data, you have the right to withdraw or decline your consent at any time and where we rely on legitimate interests, you have the right to object.

YOUR DEVICE AND LOCATION

When you visit or leave our Website, we receive the URL of both the site you came from and the one you go to next. We also get information about your IP address, proxy server, operating system, web browser and add-ons, device identifier and features, and/or ISP or your mobile carrier. If you use our services from a mobile device, that device will send us data about your location based on your phone settings.

USE OF PERSONAL INFORMATION

Personal information will be collected, held, used and disclosed for the following primary purposes jointly and/or severally:

  • for the purposes for which it was collected (as set out in this Privacy Policy);
