We may update our policy from time to time. When we do, we will reflect the changes on in this document on our website and in your app. For some changes it may be appropriate to contact you directly to inform you, in which case we will communicate with you via our app or email or another suitable method
Economyz Ltd (we, us, our) is registered as a limited company in England and Wales. Our company registration number is 12354792 and our registered address is 20-22 Wenlock Road, London, N1 7GU. Our business uses your data to help you enjoy an eco-friendly life. We recognise that you are trusting us with your data and we commit to protect it, respect your privacy and be transparent with you on what we do with your data through our policy. We are the data controller of your personal data shared with us on our website, our app and in other services we provide you with. We are registered with the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) and our registration number is ZA756110.
When we say Personal Data, we mean information about someone that can be used to identify the person. It could be obvious information like name but also information like IP address or cookie identifiers.
At Economyz, some of the information we collect on you:
We will only use your information in line with what is allowed under data protection laws – in particular, the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). This means we only use it where we have a legal basis to do so. We use your data under the following legal basis:
So that we can provide you with our services, you will need to consent explicitly to providing us with your financial transaction data using regulatory approved Open Banking technology.
In addition, we will use your information for the following purposes:
We store your Personal Information for as long as we need it to provide you with our products and services. We delete your Personal Data the later of when we stop providing you with our services and any regulatory period for which we need to hold the data.
We are based in the UK, and store our physical data in the UK. However, like most technology businesses, we use third parties to host our data and technology, provide email services, SMS services etc.
We always carefully vet who we choose to work with, and make sure they operate to high standards of security and privacy. As part of working with these third parties, we sometimes need to share your data with them to provide these services to you.
We will strive to store your data within the United Kingdom (UK) and European Economic Area (EEA) countries that adhere to a high standard of data protection and privacy. But we may also use services that store personal data outside of these regions. Where we do, we will restrict these to suppliers or regions that are confirmed as protecting Personal Information to at least UK standards, including companies in the United States of America (USA) certified as providing an adequate level of protection.
Economyz takes protection of your Personal Information very seriously. We have physical, systemic and administrative policies and procedures in place to safeguard the information we collect from unauthorised access, misuse, disclosure, loss and alteration as required by law.
We take all reasonable measures to maintain the confidentiality of your information, including encryption of data, vetting third parties we use and user access controls for who can access data within the organisation.
Despite our best efforts, there is an underlying risk, beyond our control, in sending information between you and us. In the unlikely event that this risk materialises, and we do encounter a data breach, we commit to taking prompt action to resolve the situation and inform you about it.
In order to help us keep your data secure, we also need you (where appropriate) to take precautions when accessing our products and services. We ask you not to share your passwords with anyone and not to let anyone else access your account.
We may share your information with regulators, fraud prevention agencies, lawyers and government bodies in order to comply with our legal obligations and defend our legal rights.
We may share your information with a third party as part of the process of selling or buying any business or business assets. In the scenario that Economyz is wholly or largely acquired by a third party, then Personal Information held by us may be one of the assets transferred to the third party.
We may share anonymised and aggregated data and insights for research, marketing or business purposes. Your specific personal data will never be disclosed in this instance.
We may share your information with other third-party businesses for marketing purposes only with your express consent.
