This section does not apply to EEA citizens who are resident outside of the EEA (for example, a French citizen who is resident in the United States). The EEA consists of the member states of the European Union, i.e., Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Croatia, Republic of Cyprus, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden and the United Kingdom, and Iceland, Liechtenstein, and Norway. This section also applies to residents of Switzerland and, in the event of its departure from the EU, residents of the United Kingdom. Residents of the EEA and Switzerland are referred to here as “EEA Residents.”
From May 25, 2018, all processing of Personal Information of EEA Residents is subject to the General Data Protection Regulation (2016/679) of the European Parliament and of the Council of 27 April 2016 on the protection of natural persons regarding the processing of Personal Information and on the free movement of such data (“GDPR”).
Under the GDPR, we are both a controller and a processor of the Personal Information of EEA Residents. Our purpose for collecting and processing Personal Information from EEA Residents is to allow users to subscribe to and log in to our Website and Services and to provide our Services to our customers. Our legal basis for collecting Personal Information will be one of the following:
a. to fulfil our contractual obligations to you, for example to provide the Services or to ensure that invoices are paid correctly;

We have implemented administrative, technical, and physical safeguards to help prevent unauthorized access, use, or disclosure of your Personal Information. Your data is stored on secure servers and isn't publicly available. We limit access of your data only to those employees or partners on a need to know basis, in order to enable the carrying out of the agreement between us.
While we seek to protect your data to ensure that it is kept confidential, we cannot absolutely guarantee its security. You need to help us prevent unauthorized access to your account by protecting your password appropriately and limiting access to your account. You will be solely responsible for keeping your password confidential and for all use of your password and your account, including any unauthorized use. You should also be aware that there is always some risk involved in transmitting data over the internet. While we strive to protect your Personal Information, we cannot ensure or warrant the security and privacy of your Personal Information or other content you transmit using the service, and you do so at your own risk.
We will retain your Personal Information for as long as necessary to provide our services, and as necessary to comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes, and enforce our policies. Retention periods will be determined taking into account the type of data that is collected and the purpose for which it is collected, bearing in mind the requirements applicable to the situation and the need to destroy outdated, unused data at the earliest reasonable time. Under applicable regulations, we will keep records containing client Personal Information, trading data, account opening documents, communications and anything else as required by applicable laws and regulations.
We have put in place certain safeguards to help prevent unauthorized access and maintain data security with respect to your Personal Information. Despite these protections, however, we cannot guarantee that your data will be 100% secure. You should take measures to protect your Personal Information.
Your online access to your Personal Information may be protected with a password you select. We will never ask you for your password in any unsolicited communication (such as letters, phone calls or email messages). You have an obligation to keep your user ID, password and personal information secure. As part of maintaining this obligation we recommend you do the following:
a. Keep your user ID and password confidential;
b. Utilize a unique password and change it frequently;
c. Make sure others are not watching you enter your user ID and/or password on your keyboard when using protected elements of the Services; and
d. Do not leave your computer unattended while logged onto protected elements of the Services. After you finished accessing your information, exit the protected area.
o Right to Know and Right to Delete. If you are a California consumer, you will have the right to request that we disclose what Personal Information we collect and process about you. You also have the right to submit requests to delete certain Personal Information.
When we receive a request to know or delete from a California consumer, we will confirm receipt of the request within 10 days and provide you with information about how we will process the request, including process for making sure that you are the individual who is making the request. We will respond to such requests within 45 days.
o Right for Disclosure of Information. If you are a California consumer, you may also submit requests that we disclose specific types or categories of Personal Information that we collect about you.
Under certain circumstances, we are not required to provide you with this information, including where the disclosure of the information would create a substantial, articulable and unreasonable risk to the security of that Personal Information, customers’ account with us, or the security of our systems or networks. If you are a California consumer, we will also not disclose your social security number, driver’s license numbers or other government-issued identification numbers, financial account numbers, any health insurance or medical identification numbers, or account passwords and security questions and answers, if any of such Personal Information was collected by us.
o Submitting Requests. If you are a California consumer and would
like to make any requests under the CCPA, please direct them as follows: click here
o Verifying Requests. If we receive any request from you we will use a two-step process for online requests where the California consumer must first, clearly submit the request and then second, separately confirm the request. We will use other appropriate measures to verify requests received by mail or telephone.
If you are a California consumer submitting a request, you must provide
sufficient information to identify yourself, such as name, e-mail address,
home or work address, or other such information that is on record with us
so that we can match such information to the Personal Information that we
maintain. Do not provide social security numbers, driver’s license numbers,
account numbers, credit or debit card numbers, medical information or
health information with requests. If your request is unclear or submitted
through means other than described above, we will give you specific
directions on how to submit the request or remedy any deficiencies. If we
cannot verify your identity, we may deny the request.
o California Do Not Track Disclosures. Although some browsers currently offer a “do not track (‘DNT’) option,” no common industry standard for DNT exists. We therefore do not currently commit to responding to browsers’ DNT signals.
