Information from third party sources
From time to time, DFi Labs may obtain information about you from third party sources, as permitted by applicable law, such as public databases and identity verification partners : DFi Labs obtains information about you from public databases and identity verification partners for the purpose of verifying your identity. Identity verification partners use a combination of government records and public information about you to verify your identity. This information includes your name, address, occupation, public sector employment profile, credit history, status on sanction lists maintained by public authorities, and other relevant data. The legal basis for this processing is to comply with the legal obligations of DFi Labs, such as laws against money laundering.

DFi Labs also processes this information to provide you with assistance in the context of its contractual obligations towards you. Finally, DFi Labs processes this information in the public interest because it helps it to monitor, prevent and detect fraud.
Once DFi Labs obtains such information from third parties, DFi Labs will no longer share it with other third parties, except in the cases described in this confidentiality policy. This information is shared with DFi Labs' processors and group of companies, if necessary, to perform the Services.
Collection and use of automatically collected information
DFi Labs automatically receives and stores certain types of information, for example when you interact with the sites or use the services. This information does not necessarily reveal your identity directly, but may include information about the specific device you are using, such as hardware model, version of the operating system, browser software (such as Firefox, Safari or Internet Explorer), and your Internet Protocol (IP)/MAC address/device identifier.
For example, DFi Labs automatically receives and saves information on DFi Labs' server logs from your browser, including how you arrived at the Services and used them; your IP address ; device type and unique device identification numbers, device event information (such as failures, system activity and hardware settings, browser type, browser language, date and time of your request and referring URL), general geographic location (for example, country or city), and other technical data collected through cookies, pixel tags and other similar technologies that uniquely identify your browser.

DFi Labs may use identifiers to recognize you when you arrive on the website through an external link, such as a link appearing on a third party site.
How DFi Labs protects and stores personal information
DFi Labs understands the importance of protecting your privacy, which is why DFi Labs maintains (and requires its service providers to maintain) appropriate physical, technical and administrative safeguards to protect the security and confidentiality of the confidential information you entrust to it.
DFi Labs may store and process all or part of your personal and transactional information, including certain payment information, in Switzerland and elsewhere in the world where DFi Labs' service providers are located.
DFi Labs protects your personal information by implementing physical, electronic and procedural protections in accordance with applicable laws and regulations.
For example, DFi Labs uses computer protections such as firewalls and data encryption, DFi Labs implements physical access controls to its buildings and files and DFi Labs only authorises access to personal information to those employees who need it to carry out their duties.
However, DFi Labs cannot guarantee that the loss, misuse, unauthorised acquisition or alteration of your data will not occur.

When you register for DFi Labs' services, it is important to choose a password that is sufficiently long and complex, not to reveal it to third parties and to inform DFi Labs immediately if you become aware of any unauthorised access to or use of your account.
How DFi Labs protects and stores personal information
DFi Labs takes care to allow access to your personal information only to those who really need it to perform their tasks and duties and to share it with third parties who have a legitimate purpose for accessing it. DFi Labs will never sell or rent your personal information. DFi Labs will only share your data under the following circumstances :
DFi Labs may share your information with contracted service providers who assist certain parts of DFi Labs' business operations, such as marketing and technology services. DFi Labs' contracts require these service providers to use your information only in connection with the services they provide to DFi Labs, and prohibit them from selling your information to anyone else.
DFi Labs shares your information with the financial institutions with which DFi Labs partners to process the payments you have authorised.
DFi Labs may share your information with third parties when required to do so by applicable law or by a court or other authority to which DFi Labs is put in any jurisdiction; or DFi Labs believes in good faith that the disclosure of personal information is necessary to prevent physical harm or financial loss, to report suspected illegal activity or to investigate violations of DFi Labs' Contracts and any other applicable policies.

How DFi Labs shares personal information with other parties
You have the right to review, correct or amend your personal information, or delete such information if it is inaccurate. You may do so by contacting your Relationship Manager. However, this right is limited when the personal information is necessary for regulatory purposes.
If you decide to terminate your customer relationship, DFi Labs will mark your account in the DFi Labs database as "Closed", but will retain your account information in the DFi Labs database for a period of time authorised by applicable law. This measure is necessary to prevent fraud, by ensuring that persons attempting to commit fraud will not be able to avoid detection simply by closing their account and opening a new one. However, if you close your account, your personal information will not be used by DFi Labs for other purposes, nor will it be sold or shared with third parties, except if it is necessary to prevent fraud and to assist in the realisation of the law, as required by law, or in accordance with this confidentiality policy.
