2. Information We Obtain
Information That You Provide to Us
Personal data that you provide directly to us will be apparent from the context in which you provide it, for example:
- your first and last name, physical address, e-mail address, or telephone number when you create your account and other account-related information (such as username, password, security questions and answers and any content you choose to store in your account);
- professional details such as the name of your employer, and your job title or position;
- information relating to assets or investments;

Information That We Collect Automatically
Our web servers may log information such as your operating system type, device identifier, browser type, domain, and other system settings, as well as the language your system uses and the country and time zone where your device is located. The web server logs may also record information such as the address of the
web page that referred you to our app or website and the IP address of the device you use to connect to the Internet. They may also log information about your interaction with the Services, such as which pages you visit. To control which web servers collect information by automated means, we may place tags called “web beacons” — small files that link web pages to particular web servers and their cookies. We may also collect information from your browser, such as your browsing history, and use it in conjunction with data gathered from forms and e-mails to help us understand and respond to your needs.
Information That We Obtain From Third Parties
We obtain information from the third parties that you have instructed to send us information.
3. How We Use Information That We Obtain

We use the personal data for these purposes because we have a legitimate business interest in providing the Services to our customers and other interested individuals that is not overridden by your interests, rights and freedoms to protect personal data about you or, if you are acting in an individual capacity, because it is necessary for us to process the personal data to provide the Services to you.
In addition to the uses discussed above, we may also use the personal data you provide to:
- provide custom, personalized content and information;
- provide, improve and monitor the effectiveness of our Services;

- diagnose or fix technology problems.
We use the personal data for the purposes described above because we have a legitimate interest in operating and improving our business that is not overridden by your interests, rights and freedoms to protect personal data about you.
We may also use the personal data that you provide to protect against and prevent fraud, claims, and other liabilities and to comply with or enforce applicable legal requirements, industry standards, and our policies and terms. We use personal data for these purposes when it is necessary to protect, exercise or defend our legal rights, or when we are required to do so by law that applies to us.
Information That We Collect Automatically
We use personal data that we collect automatically through cookies, non-cookie-based tokens, web beacons, and other automated means for purposes such as customizing and enhancing our users’ uses of the Services, collecting statistics about your usage, and understanding the manner in which our visitors browse our websites. We also use the information to help diagnose technical and service problems. We use the personal data for the purposes described above because we have a legitimate interest in operating and improving our Services that is not overridden by your interests, rights and freedoms to protect personal data about you.

legal process, for example due to a court order or a request from a law enforcement agency, (b) when we believe disclosure is necessary or appropriate to prevent physical harm or financial loss, (c) in connection with an investigation of suspected or actual fraudulent or other illegal activity, or (d) in the event we sell or transfer all or a portion of our business or assets (including in the event of a reorganization, dissolution, or liquidation).
5. Data Transfers
We may transfer the personal data that we collect about you to recipients within the EU.
6. How Long We Keep Information
The time period for which we keep personal data depends on the purpose for which we collected it. In all cases we keep it for as long as necessary to fulfil the purposes for which we collected it. We will then delete the personal data, unless we are legally required to retain it or if we need to retain it in order to comply with our legal obligations (for example, for tax and accounting purposes).
