Photographs: If you use certain functionalities provided by us, we may ask you to upload a picture of you in order to provide these specific services. Your face must be recognizable.
Transaction Information: When you use the Lirium Services to send funds we ask you to provide information related to that transaction. This information includes the amount and type of the transaction, other purchase/transactional details and the details pertaining to the identity of the third party. Also, when you send money, you may be asked to provide personal details to complete the transaction. Those details may also be passed on to us from your other financial service provider. We also collect in certain cases the Internet address (IP address) and other identifying information about the computer or device you use to access your Lirium account or use the Lirium Services, in order to help detect possible instances of unauthorized transactions.
Information About You From Third Parties: In order to protect all our customers against potential fraud, we verify the information you provide with Payment Partners and/or Credit Reference and Fraud Agencies as well as information available through internet and publicly accessible social network data. In the course of such verification, we may receive personally identifiable information about you from such services. In particular, if you use a debit or a credit card to pay into your Lirium Wallet, we may conduct verification checks that the card used for the transaction has not been reported as lost or stolen.
If you send or receive high overall payment volumes or display inconsistent transactional patterns through the Lirium Services, or if you have a limited transactional history with us, in some circumstances we will conduct a background check on you by obtaining information about you from a credit reference or fraud agency. If you owe us money, we may conduct a credit check on you by obtaining additional information about you from a credit reference or fraud agency, to the extent permitted by law. Lirium, at its sole discretion, reserves the right to periodically retrieve and review a business and/or consumer credit report supplied by such credit reference or fraud agency for any account, and reserves the right to close an account based on information obtained during this credit review process.
Information About You from Other Sources: We may also collect information about you from other sources, including from other Lirium entities, other companies (subject to their privacy policies and applicable law), and from other accounts we have reason to believe you control (whether in part or in whole).
Additional Verification: If we cannot verify the information that you provide, or if you request a withdrawal to an account, payment instrument or digital wallet not previously used by you, we may ask you to upload or send us additional confirmations or to answer additional questions online to help verify your information.

Every time you visit a site, cookies can keep track of how many times you’ve visited, how long you’ve spent there, and what you’ve done. That lets us show you things which are relevant to you, based on information you’ve entered. It also allows us to protect your account and identify potential cases of unauthorized access or other malicious behavior.
The length of time stored depends on the cookie, but this is generally between a few minutes and up to two years.
You can disable cookies in your browser or app settings at any time, but it could also mean that certain services or features may not be available to you.
Communications: When you communicate with us for customer service or other purposes (e.g., by emails, phone calls, tweets, etc.), we retain such information and our responses to you in the records of your account.
Questionnaires, Surveys, Sweepstakes and Profile Data: From time to time, we offer optional questionnaires, surveys and sweepstakes to our users for such purposes as collecting demographic information or assessing users' interests and needs. If we collect personally identifiable information from our users in these questionnaires, surveys, and sweepstakes, the users will be given notice of how the information will be used prior to their participation in the survey, questionnaire or sweepstake.

We use your email or physical address to confirm your opening of a Lirium Account, to send you notice of transactions that you send or receive through, to send you information about important changes to our products and services, and to send notices and other disclosures required by law. Generally, users cannot opt out of these communications, but they will be primarily informational in nature rather than promotional.
We also use your email address to send you other types of communications that you can control, including "news”, “customer surveys” and “notice of special third-party promotions”. You can choose whether to receive some, all or none of these communications when you complete the registration process, or at any time thereafter, by logging in to your account and then selecting settings, and updating your preferences.
In connection with independent audits of our financial statements and operations, the auditors may seek to contact a sample of our customers to confirm that our records are accurate. However, these auditors cannot use personally identifiable information for any secondary purposes.
We may combine your information with information we collect from other companies and use it to improve and personalize the Lirium Services. If you don't wish to receive marketing communications from us or participate in our ad-customization programs, simply update your preferences on your devices used to access Lirium Services.
5. HOW WE SHARE INFORMATION WITH OTHER LIRIUM USERS
If you are a registered Lirium user and you are sending funds to or from Lirium account, to another user, as a part of the transaction, the name and pertinent transactional details of both sides of the transaction may be shared as a part of transaction notification. However, your card number, bank account and other financial information will not be revealed to anyone through the Lirium Services or third parties that use the Lirium Services, except with your express permission or if we are required to do so pursuant to credit card rules, a court order or other legal process.
We work with third parties to enable them to accept or facilitate payments from or to you using the Lirium Services. In doing so, a third party may share information about you with us such as your email address or phone number, when a payment is sent to you or when you are attempting to pay that third party. We use this information to confirm that you are a Lirium customer and that Lirium can be enabled to make a payment, or where a payment is sent to you to send you a notification that you have received a payment. Also, if you request that we validate your status as a Lirium customer with a third party, we will do so. Please note that third parties you receive funds or buy from with may have their own privacy policies, and Lirium is not responsible for their operations, including but not limited to their information practices.
6. HOW WE SHARE INFORMATION WITH OTHER THIRD PARTIES
Just like most banks or financial/payment service providers, Lirium works with third-party service providers and other business partners, which provide important functions to us that allow us to be an easier, faster, and safer way to buy, sell, hold and send virtual currencies. We need to disclose user data to them from time to time so that the services can be performed.
In order to provide the Lirium Services, certain of the information we collect (as set out in section 2) may be required to be transferred to other Lirium group entities or other entities, including those referred to in section 6 in their capacity as payment providers, payment processors or account holders (or similar capacities). You acknowledge that according to their local legislation, such entities may be subject to laws, regulations, inquiries, investigations, or orders which may require the disclosure of information to the relevant authorities of the relevant country. Your use of the Lirium Services constitutes your consent to our transfer of such information to provide you the Lirium Services.
Specifically, you consent to and direct Lirium to do any and all of the following with your information:
· Disclose necessary information to: the police and other law enforcement agencies; security forces; competent governmental, intergovernmental or supranational bodies; competent agencies, departments, regulatory authorities, self-regulatory authorities or organizations and other third parties, including Lirium Group companies, that (i) we are legally compelled and permitted to comply with, including but without limitation the US Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act (“FATCA Law”) and the OECD common reporting standard regulations (“CRS Regulations”); (ii) we have reason to believe it is appropriate for us to cooperate with in investigations of fraud or other illegal activity or potential illegal activity, or (iii) to conduct investigations of violations of our User Agreement (including without limitation, your funding source or credit or debit card provider).
· If you are covered by the FATCA or CRS, we are required to give you notice of the information about you that we may transfer to various authorities.
· We and other organizations, including our partner banks that accept a Lirium integration, may also share, access and use (including from other countries) necessary information (including, without limitation the information recorded by fraud prevention agencies) to help us and them assess and to manage risk (including, without limitation, to prevent fraud, money laundering and terrorist financing). Please contact us if you want to receive further details of the relevant fraud prevention agencies.
· Disclose necessary information in response to the requirements of the credit card associations or a civil or criminal legal process.
· Disclose necessary information to the payment processors, auditors, customer services providers, credit reference and fraud agencies, financial products providers, commercial partners, marketing and public relations companies, operational services providers, group companies, agencies, marketplaces and other third parties listed here. The purpose of this disclosure is to allow us to provide Lirium Services to you. We also set out in the list of third parties, under each "Category", non-exclusive examples of the actual third parties (which may include their assigns and successors) to whom we currently disclose your Account Information or to whom we may consider disclosing your Account Information, together with the purpose of doing so, and the actual information we disclose (except as explicitly stated, these third parties are limited by law or by contract from using the information for secondary purposes beyond the purposes for which the information was shared).
· Disclose necessary information to your agent or legal representative (such as the holder of a power of attorney that you grant, or a guardian appointed for you).
· Disclose aggregated statistical data with our business partners or for public relations. For example, we may disclose that a specific percentage of our users living in Germany or Switzerland. However, this aggregated information is not tied to personal information.
· Share necessary Account Information with unaffiliated third parties for their use for the following purposes
o Fraud Prevention and Risk Management: to help prevent fraud or assess and manage risk. For example, if you use the Lirium Services to buy or sell virtual currencies we may share Account Information with third parties in order to help protect your accounts from fraudulent activity, alert you if we detect such fraudulent activity on your accounts, or evaluate credit risk.
o Customer Service: for customer service purposes, including to help service your accounts or resolve disputes (e.g., billing or transactional).
o Legal Compliance: to help them comply with anti-money laundering and counter-terrorist financing verification requirements.
o Service Providers: to enable service providers under contract with us to support our business operations, such as fraud prevention, bill collection, marketing, customer service and technology services. Our contracts dictate that these service providers only use your information in connection with the services they perform for us and not for their own benefit.
o Third Party Sites: If you open a Lirium account directly on a third party website or via a third party application, any information that you enter on that website or application (and not directly on a Lirium website) will be shared with the owner of the third party website or application. These sites are governed by their own privacy policies and you are encouraged to review their privacy policies before providing them with personal information. Lirium is not responsible for the content or information practices of such third parties.
7. CROSS-BORDER TRANSFERS OF YOUR INFORMATION
Lirium is committed to adequately protecting your information regardless of where the data resides and to providing appropriate protection for your information where such data is transferred outside of the EEA.
8. NO SPAM
Lirium does not tolerate spam. We strictly enforce our Anti-Spam Policy. To report Lirium-related spam to Lirium, please contact us.
9. INFORMATION SECURITY
Lirium is committed to handling your customer information with high standards of information security. We use computer safeguards such as firewalls and data encryption, we enforce physical access controls to our buildings and files, and we authorize access to personal information only for those employees who require it to fulfil their job responsibilities.
The security of your Lirium account also relies on your protection of your Lirium password. You may not share your Lirium access credentials with anyone. Lirium representatives will never ask you for your password, so any email or other communication requesting your password should be treated as unauthorized and suspicious and forwarded to firstname.lastname@example.org. If you do share your Lirium password with a third party for any reason, including because the third party has promised to provide you additional services such as account aggregation, the third party will have access to your account and your personal information, and you may be responsible for actions taken using your password. If you believe someone else has obtained access to your password, please change it immediately by logging in to your account and changing your Profile settings, and also contact us right away.
10. ACCESSING AND CHANGING YOUR INFORMATION
You can review the personal information you have provided to us and make any desired changes to such information, or to the settings for your Lirium account, at any time by logging in to your Lirium Account through your mobile banking app website, selecting My Account, and changing your preferences. You can also close your Lirium account through your mobile banking app. If you close your Lirium account, we will mark your account in our database as "Closed", but will keep your Account Information in our database. This is for instance necessary in order to deter fraud, by ensuring that persons who try to commit fraud will not be able to avoid detection simply by closing their account and opening a new account. However, if you close your account, your personally identifiable information will not be used by us for any further purposes, nor sold or shared with third parties, except as necessary to prevent fraud and assist law enforcement authorities, or as required by law.
