This privacy policy explains how we use the information we collect about you, how you can instruct us if you prefer to limit the use of that information and procedures that we have in place to safeguard your privacy.

  1. The information we collect and how we use it

    When you register for the service we may need details including: * Last Name, * First Name,* Company, VAT Number, * Country,* Town, Province, * Address, P.O Box, *Telephone, Mobile, Fax, Website, * Email. We gather this information to allow us to process your registrations and also to provide access to the system. The relevant information is then used by us to communicate with you on any matter relating to the conduct of your account and the provisions of our services in general. We may also use aggregate information and statistics for the purposes of monitoring website usage in order to help us develop the website and we may provide such aggregate information to third parties. These statistics will not include any information that can be used to identify any individual. We may automatically collect technical information when you connect to our site that is not personally identifiable. This includes for example the type of Internet Browser you are using, the type of computer operating system and the domain name of the website from which you are linked to our site.

  2. Anti-money laundering information for prospective clients

    In Cyprus and the other jurisdictions in which we operate, laws and regulations are designed to combat money laundering. Broadly, money laundering can arise if a person acquires, retains, transfers, uses or controls the proceeds of a crime or the benefit of a criminal activity. References to money laundering include references to terrorism.

    In order to fulfil our obligations, we are obliged to verify the identity of new clients, and in certain circumstances existing clients. In addition, our internal requirements from time to time may require that we conduct background checks on new or existing clients. These may necessitate verification procedures of the identity and good standing of clients, one or more of their directors or employees or other representatives and others and the identity of clients’ or potential clients’ shareholders, beneficial owners, management, directors or officers and/or other relevant information, possibly including evidence of the source of funds, at the outset of, and possibly from time to time throughout, our relationship with clients, which we may request and/or may obtain from third party sources.

    In some circumstances we may decline to, or may not be permitted to, proceed to act until such procedures have been completed. In other circumstances we may agree to commence acting whilst these procedures are carried out. We reserve the right to decline to act or, if appropriate, cease to act should these procedures not be completed to our satisfaction.

  6. Your Reinforced rights

    We have taken appropriate measures to provide any information relating to your rights as well as the exercise of these rights. Under Chapter III of the GDPR you have the following rights:

    1. Transparent information, communication and modalities for the exercise of your rights

      You have the right to be provided with your data freely and in an intelligible and easily accessible form. Following your request, we shall provide information without undue delay and in any event within one month of receipt of the request. That period may be extended by two further months where necessary, taking into account the complexity and number of requests. In that case we will inform you for the reasons of the delay.

    2. Information to be provided where personal data are collected from the data subject

      You have the right to know the contact details of the agent who collects your data, the purposes of the processing for which the personal data are intended, the legal basis for the processing, the recipients or categories of recipients of the personal data and where applicable the fact that the controller intends to transfer personal data to a third country.

    3. Right of access

      You have the right to request and receive a copy of your personal data undergoing processing.

    4. Right to rectification

      You have the right to obtain from us without undue delay the rectification of inaccurate personal data concerning you.

    5. Right to erasure (‘right to be forgotten’)

      There is a right to ask for the erasure of your personal data and no longer processed where the personal data are no longer necessary in relation to the purposes for which they are controlled or otherwise processed.

      Hence, in the cases where we retain and process personal data in accordance with the provisions of Article 6(1)(c) of the GDPR, we may object to such a request and may keep the relevant personal data that are required in order for us to comply with its legal obligations.

    6. Right to restriction of processing

      You have the right of restricting processing where the accuracy of the personal data is contested by you, the processing is unlawful and there is pending verification as to whether our legitimate grounds override those of your rights.

      Therefore, we ensure that there is a procedure in place where you have the right to restrict the processing of your personal data. Nonetheless, for those personal data that are necessary for compliance with a legal obligation, we may object to the restriction.

    7. Right to data portability

      You have the right to receive the personal data concerning you, which you have provided to us, in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format and you have the right to transmit those data to another controller without hindrance from the controller to which the personal data have been provided.

    8. Right to object

      You have the right to object to the processing of your personal data. However, since we lawfully processes such data under Article 6(1)(c), we will still have the right to process the data.

    9. Automated individual decision-making, including profiling

      You have the right no to be subject to a decision solely on automated processing, including profiling, which produces legal effects concerning you or similarly significantly affects.

  7. Data Protection

    We process and store all personal data, in line with EU Data Protection Legislation. Personal data is utilised for registration purposes only and is not sold or forwarded to any third parties without your consent.

Data Protection Responsibilities

For the purposes of this Privacy Policy we act as “data controllers” when we determine the purposes for which and the manner in which any personal data are, or are to be processed. Furthermore, we act as “data processors” when we obtain, record or hold the information or data or carry out any operation or set of operations on the information or data.
