Vane Finance Technology Ltd ("Vane", "we", "our", or "us") is committed to protecting and respecting your privacy.
Vane Finance Technology Ltd. is the data controller of the personal information we hold about you.
We collect personal information that you voluntarily submit directly to us when you use our Site. This can include information you provide to us when you register for an account and user profile, correspond with us or use some other feature of our Site.
We may also collect personal information from third parties, such as social networks.
We will indicate to you where the provision of certain personal information is required in order for us to provide you certain features of the Site. If you choose not to provide such personal information, we may not be able to provide access to certain aspects of the Site to you or respond to your other requests.
We also automatically collect personal information indirectly about how you access and use the Site and information about the device you use to access the Site.
The table at Annex 1 sets out the categories of personal information we collect about you and how we use that information. The table also lists the legal basis which we rely on to process the personal information and the recipients of the personal information.
We may link or combine the personal information we collect about you and the information we collect automatically. This allows us to provide you with a personalised experience regardless of how you interact with us.
We may anonymise and aggregate any of the personal information we collect (so that it does not directly identify you). We may use anonymised information for purposes that include testing our IT systems, research, data analysis, improving our Site and developing new products and features. We may also share such anonymised information with others.
We will store the personal information we collect about you for no longer than necessary for the purposes set out in Annex 1 in accordance with our legal obligations and legitimate business interests.
To determine the appropriate retention period for personal information, we consider the amount, nature and sensitivity of the personal information, the potential risk of harm from unauthorised use or disclosure of your personal information, the purposes for which we process your personal information and whether we can achieve those purposes through other means, and the applicable legal, regulatory, tax, accounting or other requirements.
From time to time we may contact you with information about our products and services, including sending you marketing messages and asking for your feedback on your products and services.
Most marketing messages we send will be by email. For some marketing messages, we may use personal information we collect about you to help us determine the most relevant marketing information to share with you.
We will only send you marketing messages if you have given us your consent to do so, unless consent is not required under applicable law (e.g. in certain circumstances where we have a pre-existing customer relationship your consent is not required). You can withdraw your consent or opt out of receiving further communications at a later date by clicking on the unsubscribe link at the bottom of our marketing emails.
We may also ask third parties to send you messages asking for your feedback on our behalf. If you give us permission to do so, we may share your contact details with such parties for this purpose.
Security. We implement appropriate technical and organisational measures to protect your personal information against accidental or unlawful destruction, loss, change or damage. All personal information we collect will be stored on our secure servers. We will never send you unsolicited emails or contact you by phone requesting your account ID, password, credit or debit card information or national identification numbers.
In accordance with applicable privacy law, you have the following rights in respect of your personal information that we hold:
You also have a right to object to any processing based on our legitimate interests where there are grounds relating to your particular situation. There may be compelling reasons for continuing to process your personal information, and we will assess and inform you if that is the case. You can object to marketing activities for any reason.
Please note that the above rights are not absolute and we may be entitled to refuse requests, wholly or partly, where exceptions under the applicable law apply.
You also have the right to lodge a complaint to your national data protection authority. Further information about how to contact your local data protection authority is available at http://ec.europa.eu/justice/data-protection/bodies/authorities/index_en.htm.
