We only permit authorised ArcaPay employees and third-party processors to have access to your information. Such employees and third-party processors are appropriately designated and trained to process data in line with our policies and procedures.

SHARING YOUR INFORMATION WITH OTHERS

We may share your personal information with our ArcaPay group companies where it is in our legitimate interests to do so for internal administrative purposes (for example, ensuring consistent and coherent delivery of our services to our customers, corporate strategy, compliance, auditing, monitoring, quality assurance).

We may also share your personal information with our service providers and subcontractors, including but not limited to payment processors, banking and financial institutions for the fulfillment of financial transactions, as well as the Central Bank of Lithuania and any other legal, regulatory or governmental institution that we are required to disclose information to.

CROSS-BORDER TRANSFERS OF PERSONAL DATA

ArcaPay group of companies operate in multiple jurisdictions. Personal information may be transferred, accessed and stored globally as necessary for the uses stated above and in compliance with local regulations.

Occasionally, personal data may be transferred to or processed in locations outside of the European Union (“EU”), some of which may have not been determined by the European Commission to have adequate level of data protection. In such cases, we take measures designed to provide the level of data protection required in the EU, including ensuring that data transfers are governed by the requirements of the Standard Contractual Clauses adopted by the European Commission, or another adequate transfer mechanism.

If we receive a request to disclose personal data from a law enforcement agency or regulatory body, we carefully validate such requests, including reviewing the legality of any order and challenging the order if there are grounds under the law to do so, before any personal data is disclosed.

PROTECTING YOUR INFORMATION

We adopt appropriate data collection, processing, storage and data security measures to protect against unauthorised 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 prevent unauthorised access.

All data is stored encrypted in the database format and the minimum is kept as required by applicable laws and regulations, as well being securely destroyed when data is no longer necessary for the purposes of the data processing.

EXECUTING YOUR RIGHTS TO DATA

Your rights in relation to your personal information processing are as follows:

  1. Right of access. You have a right of access to any personal information we hold about you. You can ask us for a copy of your personal information; confirmation if your personal information is being processed by ArcaPay; details about how and why we process your personal information; details of measures we implement if we transfer your information outside of the European Economic Area (EEA).
  2. Right to update your information. You have a right to request an update to any of your personal information which is out of date or incorrect.
  3. Right to delete your information. You have a right to ask us to delete any of your personal information which we are processing, where we are not required by law to retain it.
  4. Right to restrict use of your information. You have a right to ask us to restrict the way we use your personal information, e.g. for marketing and advertising.
  5. Right to data portability. You have a right to request us to provide your personal information to a third party provider of service.
  6. Right to object. You have a right to object to data processing where we process your personal information on the basis of your consent or our legitimate interest.
  7. Right to withdraw consent. For the processing activities where we have asked you for consent, you have the right to withdraw your consent at any time.
  8. Right to be informed. You have the right to be informed why and how we collect your personal data, how we will use this information, who we share it with, what are the security measures we take to protect this information and what your individual rights are.
  9. Right to not be subject to automated decision making, including profiling. Subject to exceptions, you have the right not to be subject to a decision based solely on automated processing, including profiling, which produces legal effects concerning you or similarly significantly affects you. Automated decision-making takes place when an electronic system uses personal data to make a decision without human intervention. We do not envisage (i) that any decisions will be taken about you using solely automated means, and/or (ii) that we will undertake any profiling of your personal data. However, we will notify you in writing if this position changes and will inform you of your rights as required by the applicable law.

To execute your GDPR rights please contact us via email [email protected] from the email address you are registered with on arcapay.com. We’ll acknowledge the receipt of your request shortly and respond to your request within 30 calendar days, unless we tell you we are entitled to a longer period allowed by applicable law.

However, please note that certain personal information may be exempt from such requests in certain circumstances, for example if we need to keep using the information to comply with legal requirements and our own legal obligations or to establish, exercise or defend legal claims.

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 [email protected]

Transactional information, e.g. information about received money, document requests and/or other information related to our core services is not part of marketing communication and thus cannot be disabled.
