The information you give us may include your name, address, email address, phone number, date of birth, copies of personal identification documents (such as your passport or driving license) and photographs or other descriptions of your likeness.

When you visit our website we may collect or receive your IP address, URL, browser information, plug-in types, operating system and platform as well as your login information.

Such information may include your clickstream through our website, the products you viewed and the page interactions, your personal contact information (if you are referred to us by an introducing broker or a friend), any personal data that is part of your profile on a third party social network (e.g. Facebook) and that you allow that third party social network to share with us (e.g. name, email address, gender, birthday, city, country, interests, profile picture, user ID, friend list). You can learn more about the data that we may obtain about you by visiting the website of the relevant third party social network. We may also receive personal data about individuals when we acquire other companies.


3. How we use the information about you

We use the information about you to carry out our obligations arising from the laws and regulation applicable to us or any contracts entered into between you and us and to provide you with the information, products and services that you request from us (e.g. to establish and manage your account with us or register you to our events); to provide you with customer service, including response to your inquiries or complaints; to provide you with marketing information about other goods and services we offer that are similar to those that you have already purchased or enquired about if you have agreed to receive such information through an opt-in mechanism or as an existing customer; or to keep you up to date about general news. We also use your information collected from the website to personalize your repeated visits to our website. We only collect the minimum amount of data needed and use anonymized data in our profiling activities. We will retain your information for as long as needed to provide you with our services or as long as your account is active.
