This Privacy, Cookie and Data Use Policy of Share In Ltd (hereinafter referred to as “ShareIn”, “we” or “us”) explains how and why we collect personal information about you, what our policy on cookies is and how we can use your information.
We are committed to responsible management of personal information in accordance with the Data Protection Act 1998 and the Privacy and Electronic Communications (EC Directive) Regulations 2003. Please note that the registration number of Share In Ltd on the UK Data Protection Register is ZA029742 (see http://www.ico.gov.uk).
In order to receive certain information and to use certain services on this site you may be asked to provide personal information about yourself such as your name, address, email address, date of birth, investment preferences and copies of information such as your passport page and other proof of ID. When you provide this information to us you consent to our use of that information in accordance with the terms of this Privacy, Cookie and Data Use Policy.
This information will be used (i) to provide you with the services that you have requested, (ii) to provide you with news and information about our services of the investee companies which are listed on this site, and (iii) generally in accordance with the uses permitted by this Privacy, Cookie and Data Use Policy.
If you no longer want to receive certain information from us then just let us know by email and we will either stop sending it or have to de-register you from all or part of this site (depending on the information concerned).
We will keep your personal information for as long as we need it to provide our services to you. If you make an investment in a company which is listed on this site then we will hold your personal information for a period of 7 years from the date of your last investment so that we can comply with our legal obligations.
We will try to keep personal information which we hold about you up to date, but if you think that we are holding information which is inaccurate or you are otherwise unhappy about our use of your personal information then please send us an email to let us know.
All information you provide to us or our third party suppliers (eg GoCardless) is stored on secure servers. Any payment transactions will be encrypted using SSL technology. Where we have given you (or where you have chosen) a password which enables you to access certain parts of this site, you are responsible for keeping this password confidential. Please do not share this password with anyone.
Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure. Although we will do our best to protect your personal data, we cannot guarantee the security of your data transmitted to this site; any transmission is at your own risk. Once we have received your information, we will use strict procedures and security features to try to prevent unauthorised access (although as is the norm no guarantees can be given).
We will not sell the personal information that we collect from you. We use the personal information which we collect from you to help us provide our services to you. Some data processing in relation to this site may be carried out for us by a third party (eg by GoCardless or by our solicitors etc.) and in some cases that may mean that the third party will receive your personal information. Furthermore as part of you making an investment in a company which is listed on this site then the investee company and our solicitors will be passed your personal information as well as copies of your ID documents to enable the investee company to issue shares to you and to generally comply with the law and perform ID checks of its own.
We use information held about you in the following ways:
We may disclose your personal information to any member of our group, which means our subsidiaries, our ultimate holding company and its subsidiaries, as defined in section 1159 of the UK Companies Act 2006.
We may disclose your personal information to third parties:
Apart from this we will not share or transfer any personal information with any other third party unless we are required to do so by law.
Please note that we may from the information which you supply to us provide our advertisers and/or other third parties with aggregate information about our users which does not contain any personal identifiers (for example, we may inform them that 200 men aged under 40 have clicked on their advertisement on any given day or have chosen certain investment preferences). This non-personalised information may be sold by us. We may also use such aggregate information to help such advertisers/other third parties reach the kind of audience they want to target (for example, men in SW1). We may make use of the personal data we have collected from you to enable us to comply with our advertisers’ wishes by displaying their advertisement to that target audience.
