Information collection and use

How do we collect information?
The Company collects information in two possible ways:
  1. When you directly give it to us (“Directly Provided Data”)
    When you sign up for our site, to use our services or communicate with us, you may choose to voluntarily give us certain information – for example, by filling in text boxes or completing registration forms. All this information requires a direct action by you at that time in order for us to receive it.
  2. When you give us permission to obtain from other accounts (“User Authorised Data”)
    Depending on your settings or the privacy policies for other online services, you may give us permission to obtain information from your account with those other services. For example, this can be via social media or third parties.

How long do we keep your data for?
The Company will not retain your personal information longer than necessary. We will hold onto the information you provide either while your account is in existence, or as needed to be able to provide the Services to you, or for as long as is necessary to provide support-related reporting and trend analysis only.

If legally required or if it is reasonably necessary to meet regulatory requirements, resolve disputes, prevent fraud and abuse, or enforce our Terms and Conditions, we may also retain some of your information for a limited period of time as required, even after you have closed your account or it is no longer needed to provide the Services to you.

How we protect your personal data?
We will not transfer your personal data without your consent. We have implemented generally accepted standards of technology and operational security in order to protect personal data from loss, misuse, or unauthorized alteration or destruction. Please note however that where you are transmitting information to us over the internet this can never be guaranteed to be 100% secure. For any payments which we take from you online we will use a recognised online secure payment system. We will notify you promptly in the event of any breach of your personal data which might expose you to serious risk.

You have the right to have your data erased and for processing to cease in the following circumstances:
  • Where the personal data is no longer necessary in relation to the purpose for which it was originally collected and / or processed
  • Where consent is withdrawn
  • Where the individual objects to processing and there is no overriding legitimate interest for continuing the processing
  • The personal data was unlawfully processed or otherwise breached data protection laws
  • To comply with a legal obligation
You have the right to receive confirmation that your data is being processed and to have access to your personal data and supplementary information which means the information which should be provided in a privacy notice.

You have the right to data portability and provide you with your data, so you can reuse it for your own purpose or across different services. The data should be provided in a commonly used machine- readable format and to be send to another controller if requested.

Registration forms
The Company will not sell or rent your personally identifiable information, gathered as a result of filling out the site registration form, to anyone.

Review Usage
Clients' feedback is pivotal to our commitment to professional excellence. Therefore, we may request you to provide your feedback on any of our services or products you have received through reputable online customer review websites. Your feedback may be shared for promotional and marketing purposes.

Choosing how we use your data
We understand that you trust us with your personal information, and we are committed to ensuring you can manage the privacy and security of your personal information yourself.

  • You can also contact us by the same method to change, correct, or delete your personal information controlled by The Company regarding your profile at any time. Please note though that, if you have shared any information with others through social media channels, that information may remain visible, even if your account is deleted.
  • You are also free to close your account through our account settings. If you do so, your account will be deactivated. However, we may retain archived copies of your information as required by law or for legitimate business purposes (including to help address fraud and spam).
  • You can always feel free to update us on your details at any point by contacting our customer services team [email protected]
  • You can unsubscribe from receiving marketing emails from us by clicking the “unsubscribe” link at the bottom of any email. Once you do this, you will no longer receive any emails from us.

Disclosure of your information
You agree that we have the right to share your information with:
  • Any member of our group and its subsidiaries, as defined under the Cyprus Companies’ Law.
  • Selected third parties we use to help deliver our products and/or services to you including: Business partners, brokers, vendors, insurers, payment service providers for the performance of any contract we enter into with them or you;
  • Analytics and search engine providers that assist us in the improvement and optimization of our site, Credit reference agencies and/or banking and financial institutions and/or auditors for, among others, the purpose of assessing your credit score (where this is a condition of us entering into a contract with you).
  • Law enforcement agencies and regulatory bodies such as CYSEC and/or the Police for the purposes of complying with local and international regulations against money-laundering, fraud and the general prevention of crime and illegal activities

We will disclose your personal information to third parties:
  • In the event that this is necessary for the delivery of our products and/or services to you;
  • If BDSwiss Holding Ltd or substantially all of its assets are acquired by a third party, in which case personal data held by it about its customers will be one of the transferred assets;
  • If we are under a duty to disclose or share your personal data to comply with any legal and/or regulatory obligation, or to enforce or apply our terms of use and other agreements, or to protect the rights, property, or safety of BDSwiss Holding Ltd, our customers, or others. This includes exchanging information with other companies and organizations for the purposes of fraud protection, anti-money laundering and credit risk reduction.

We only allow the third parties we work with to process your personal information if we are satisfied they take appropriate technical and organizational measures to protect your personal information. We also impose contractual obligations on our selected third parties to ensure they can only use your personal information to provide services to us and to you.

Where we store your personal data
All information you provide to us is stored on secure servers. Where we may have given you (or where you have chosen) a password which enables you to access certain parts of our site and/or use any other of our services, you are responsible for keeping this password confidential. We ask you not to share your password with anyone.
Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure. Although we will do our best to protect your personal data, we cannot guarantee the security of your data transmitted to us; any transmission is at your own risk. Once we have received your information, we will use strict procedures and security features to try to prevent unauthorized access.

Duration your personal information will be kept
We will keep your personal information while you have an account with us or while we are providing services and/or products to you or while we are in a contractual relationship with you. Thereafter, we will keep your personal information for as long as is necessary:
  • to respond to any questions, complaints or claims made by you or on your behalf;
  • to show that we treated you fairly;
  • to keep records required by law, regulations and regulatory authorities.
We will not retain your personal information for longer than necessary for the purposes set out in this policy. Different retention periods apply for different types of personal information. When it is no longer necessary to retain your personal information, we will delete or anonymize it.

Transferring your personal information outside the EEA
It is sometimes necessary for us to share and/or store your personal information outside the EEA, for example:
  • with any member of our group and/or subsidiaries located outside the EU;
  • with your and our service providers located outside the EEA;

These transfers are subject to special rules under GDPR, as non-EEA countries do not have the same data protection laws as Cyprus and other Member States of the EEA. We will, however, ensure that those transfers comply with the GDPR and that all of your personal information will be secure.
Unless the individual has specifically consented to the transfer, we will only transfer personal data outside the EEA where:
  • we transfer the data to a country or international organization which the EU Commission has decided ensures an adequate level of protection for your personal data;
  • the transfer of your personal data is subject to adequate safeguards, which may include binding corporate rules, data processing agreements or standard data protection clauses adopted by the EU Commission; or
  • one of the derogations in the GDPR to transfer personal data outside the EEA applies.

Moreover, if the data subject has provided his/her consent to any of the processing of his/her personal data, he/she has the right to withdraw his/her consent to that processing at any time, where relevant. He/she must contact the DPO if he/she wishes to do so.
We aim to comply with requests of data subjects as quickly as possible and will ensure that we comply with legislation, unless exceptions apply. In such cases, the reasons for any delay will be explained in writing to the data subject making the request.
In processing a request, the identity of the data subject needs to be verified before information will be released. No personal data will be disclosed to a third party without the written consent of the data subject.
We reserve the right to refuse repeated/vexatious requests.
For further information on each of those rights, including the circumstances in which they apply, please contact our DPO.

Keeping your personal information secure
We have appropriate technical and organizational security measures to prevent personal information from being accidentally lost, used or accessed unlawfully. We limit access to your personal information to those who have a genuine business need to access it. Those processing your information will do so only in an authorised manner and are subject to a duty of confidentiality.
We also have procedures in place to deal with any suspected data security breaches. We will notify you and the relevant supervisory authority of a suspected data security breach when we are legally required to do so.

How to complain
We hope that we and our DPO can resolve any concern or complain you may have about our use of your information.
