PROTECTING YOUR INFORMATION

We adopt appropriate data collection, storage and data security measures to protect against unauthorized access, alteration, disclosure or destruction of your personal information, username, password, transaction information and data stored on our Site. Our data processing technologies are professionally hosted by a company that specialises in hosting solutions. When you provide sensitive information to us, we encrypt the transmission of that information using secure socket layer technology (SSL). We follow generally accepted standards to protect the personal information submitted to us, both during transmission and once we receive it.

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 our Website; any transmission is at your own risk. Once we have received your information, we use strict procedures and security features to try to prevent unauthorised access.

EXECUTING YOUR RIGHTS TO DATA

To execute your GDPR rights please contact us via email info@arcapay.com. Please include the email address you are registered on arcapay.com with as we will have to perform a customer identification process. We'll respond to your request within 30 calendar days. As a regulated business ArcaPay has an obligation to retain customers’ personal data as well as additional documents for preventing, detecting and investigating possible cases of money laundering and terrorist financing. To comply with regulatory requirements, a copy of the documents and customer’s personal information will be stored in our system for a period of at least five years after the end of the business relationship with the customer or after the date of an occasional transaction. Please be aware that anti-money laundering and counter-terrorism financing regulatory requirements overrule the GDPR requirements.

If a customer’s request is manifestly unfounded or excessive, we reserve the right to refuse to act on the request or impose an administrative fee. If you think your rights are not fulfilled properly, you can always contact our Data Protection Officer (DPO) at info@arcapay.com.
