Further information about Personal Data

    • User data collected for improving the recommendation algorithm and send you tailored emails

      We collect anonymous and personal data on the website (after you sign up) to improve the recommendation algorithm that is based on the answers you give in the questionnaire.

      We also use this data to send you tailored emails based on your recommended brokers and the way you acted on the website (e.g. which pages you visited or what buttons you clicked). We send these emails in order to kindly remind you about your broker recommendation and choices and to receive some feedback from you. You can unsubscribe from these emails at any time.

      Collected customer data for this purpose: first name, email, country, virtual user ID for anonymous customers, questionnaire data (eg. answers, timestamp), your other activities on the website (eg. visited pages, clicked buttons).

      The way of handling of these data is the same as stated in the general terms of the privacy policy.

    • Analysis and predictions based on the User’s Data (“profiling”)

      The Owner may use the Personal and Usage Data collected through this Application to create or update User profiles. This type of Data processing allows the Owner to evaluate User choices, preferences and behaviour for the purposes outlined in the respective section of this document.

      User profiles can also be created through the use of automated tools like algorithms, which can also be provided by third parties. To find out more, about the profiling activities performed, Users can check the relevant sections of this document.

      The User always has a right to object to this kind of profiling activity. To find out more about the User's rights and how to exercise them, the User is invited to consult the section of this document outlining the rights of the User.

    • Automated decision-making

      Automated decision-making means that a decision which is likely to have legal effects or similarly significant effects on the User, is taken solely by technological means, without any human intervention.
      This Application may use the User's Personal Data to make decisions entirely or partially based on automated processes according to the purposes outlined in this document.
      This Application adopts automated decision-making processes as far as necessary to enter into or perform a contract between User and Owner, or on the basis of the User’s explicit consent, where such consent is required by the law.

      Automated decisions are made by technological means – mostly based on algorithms subject to predefined criteria – which may also be provided by third parties.

      The rationale behind the automated decision making is:


      • to enable or otherwise improve the decision-making process;

      • to grant Users fair and unbiased treatment based on consistent and uniform criteria;

      • to reduce the potential harm derived from human error, personal bias and the like which may potentially lead to discrimination or imbalance in the treatment of individuals etc.;

      • to reduce the risk of User's failure to meet their obligation under a contract.
        To find out more about the purposes, the third-party services, if any, and any specific rationale for automated decisions used within this Application, Users can check the relevant sections in this document.




      Consequences of automated decision-making processes for Users and rights of Users subjected to it



      As a consequence, Users subject to such processing, are entitled to exercise specific rights aimed at preventing or otherwise limiting the potential effects of the automated decisions taken.

      In particular, Users have the right to:


      • obtain an explanation about any decision taken as a result of automated decision-making and express their point of view regarding this decision;

      • challenge a decision by asking the Owner to reconsider it or take a new decision on a different basis;

      • request and obtain from the Owner human intervention on such processing.
        To learn more about the User’s rights and the means to exercise them, the User is invited to consult the section of this document relating to the rights of the User.



    • User identification via a universally unique identifier (UUID)

      This Application may track Users by storing a so-called universally unique identifier (or short UUID) for analytics purposes or for storing Users' preferences. This identifier is generated upon installation of this Application, it persists between Application launches and updates, but it is lost when the User deletes the Application. A reinstall generates a new UUID.
