  1. Legal bases for processing (for European Economic Area users)

    If you are a resident of the European Economic Area (EEA), we will only collect and process information about you if we have legal grounds to do so under applicable European Union laws. The legal bases you use are determined by the services you use and how you use them. This means that we only collect and use your information where:

    • it satisfies a legitimate interest (which is not overridden by your data protection interests), such as for research and development, to market and promote our services and to protect our legal rights and interests; • you give us consent to do so for a specific purpose; or • we need to process your data to comply with a legal obligation. If you have consented to our use of

      information about you for a specific purpose, you have the right to change your mind at any time, but this will not affect any processing that has already taken place. Where we are using your information because we or a third party (e.g. your employer) have a legitimate interest to do so, you have the right to object to that use though, in some cases, this may mean no longer using our services.

  2. Disclosure of personal information to third parties

    Risefx may transfer your personal data to a data recipient located outside of the European Economic Area (EEA) or in a country on the European Commission's list of countries ensuring an adequate level of protection for data subjects' rights and freedoms. If GO Markets does transfer your personal data outside the EEA or to a country not on the European Commission's list from time to time, it will do so with due diligence and only if the data recipient is subject to contractual arrangements imposing, among other things, obligations on it to ensure that appropriate technical and organisational measures are implemented at all times to prevent the unauthorised or unlawful processing of personal data.

    • third party service providers for the purpose of enabling them to provide their services, including (without limitation) IT service providers, data storage, webhosting and server providers, debt collectors, maintenance or problem-solving providers, marketing or advertising providers, professional advisors, payment systems operators and credit reporting agencies (CRA); • our employees, contractors and/or related entities; • our existing or potential agents or business partners; • sponsors or promoters of any competition we run; • anyone to whom our business or assets (or any part of them) are, or may (in good faith) be, transferred; • credit reporting agencies, courts, tribunals and regulatory authorities, in the event you fail to pay for goods or services we have provided to you; • courts, tribunals, regulatory authorities and law enforcement officers, as required by law, in connection with any actual or prospective legal proceedings, or in order to establish, exercise or defend our legal rights.; • third parties, including agents or sub-contractors, who assist us in providing information, products, services or direct marketing to you. This may include parties located, or that store data, outside of Mauritius; and • third parties to collect and process data, such as Google Analytics or other relevant businesses. This may include parties that store data outside of Mauritius.

      The third party will only process your personal information if we give them written instructions.

      By providing us with personal information, you consent to the disclosure of that information to third parties residing outside of Mauritius and, if you are an individual residing in the EEA, to third parties residing outside of the EEA.

      Where the disclosure of your personal information is solely subject to Mauritian privacy laws (rather than the GDPR), you acknowledge that some third parties may not be regulated by the Data Protection Act 2017, and that if any such third party engages in any act or practise that violates, it will not be held accountable under the Data Protection Act 2017, and you will not be able to seek redress under the Data Protection Act 2017.

      You acknowledge that there are risks if the third party outside the EEA engages in any act or practise that would violate the GDPR and there is no adequacy decision in place with the country outside the EEA or appropriate safeguards in place with the third party.

      How we treat personal information that is also sensitive information

      Sensitive information is a subset of personal information that is afforded greater protection under Mauritius law. Sensitive information includes racial or ethnic origin, political opinions, religion, trade union or other professional associations or memberships, philosophical beliefs, sexual orientation, sexual practises or sex life, criminal records, health information, or biometric information.

      We currently do not collect sensitive information from you. However, if we do so, we will not collect sensitive information from you without your permission.

      If you consent, your sensitive information will only be used and disclosed for purposes related to the primary purpose for which it was collected.

      If required or authorised by law, sensitive information may also be used or disclosed.

      Our responsibilities as a ‘controller’ under the GDPR

      The GDPR defines controllers as natural or legal persons, a public authority, agency, or other body to whom personal information or personal data has been disclosed, whether through a third party or not, and who determines the purposes and means of processing personal data. Under the GDPR, we are a controller because we collect, use, and store your personal information in order to provide you with our goods and/or services.

      As a controller, we have certain obligations under the GDPR when collecting, storing and using the personal information of individuals based in the EEA. If you are an individual located in the EEA, your personal data will: . • be processed lawfully, fairly and in a transparent manner by us;

    • only be collected for the specific purposes we have identified in the ‘collection and use of

      personal information’ clause above and personal information will not be further processed in a manner that is incompatible with the purposes we have identified; • be collected in a way that is adequate, relevant and limited to what is necessary in relation to the purpose for which the personal information is processed; • be kept up to date, where it is possible and within our control to do so (please let us know if you would like us to correct any of your personal information); • be kept in a form which permits us to identify you, but only for so long as necessary for the purposes for which the personal data was collected; • be processed securely and in a way that protects against unauthorised or unlawful processing and against accidental loss, destruction or damage. We also apply these principles to the way we collect, store and use the personal information of our Mauritian customers or clients. Specifically, we have the following measures in place, in accordance with the GDPR:

    • Data protection policies: We have internal policies in place which set out where and how we collect personal information, how it is stored and where it goes after we get it, in order to protect your personal information. • Right to ask us to erase your personal information: You may ask us to erase personal information we hold about you. • Right to ask us to restrict data processing: You may ask us to limit the processing of your personal information where you believe that the personal information we hold about you is wrong (to give us enough time to verify if the information needs to be changed), or where processing data is unlawful and you request us to restrict the processing of personal information rather than it being erased. • Notification of data breaches: We will comply with the GDPR in respect of any data breach.
