EARLYBIRD FUNDING - PRIVACY POLICY

Last updated April 2018

 

  1. Our Commitment to Privacy

 

We are required by law to ask for certain information in order to perform our services for you, but we are committed to protecting your personal and financial information. This Privacy Policy answers some questions about what information we collect, what we do with it, and how we protect it. It also describes the choices available to you regarding our use of your personal information and how you can access and update this information.

 

  1. Our Policy

 

Welcome to the web site www.earlybirdfunding.com (the "Site") owned and operated by EarlyBird Funding B.V. and First United Capital Group B.V. (Henceforward "EarlyBird Funding," "we," "us," and/or "our"). This Site has been created to provide information about our company and to deliver stock exchange services (the "Services") to our users ("you," "your"). This Privacy Policy sets forth EarlyBird Funding's policy with respect to information, including personally identifiable data ("Personal Data"), and other information that is collected from Site visitors and users of the Services.

 

  1. Information We Collect

 

When you interact with us through the Site or the Services, we may collect Personal Data and other information from you, as further described below:

 

Personal Data That You Provide Through the Site: We collect Personal Data from you when you voluntarily provide such information such as when you register for access to the Services (for example, contact information such as your name, email address, and mailing address; and when you wish to use certain Services (for example financial information such as bank account numbers, your Date of Birth and government identification number), contact us with inquiries or respond to one of our surveys.

 

By voluntarily providing us with Personal Data, you are consenting to our use of it in accordance with this Privacy Policy. If you provide Personal Data, you acknowledge and agree that such Personal Data may be transferred from your current location to the offices and servers of EarlyBird Funding and the authorized third parties referred to herein.

 

Non-Identifiable or Aggregated Data: When you interact with EarlyBird Funding through the Site or Services, we receive and store certain personally non-identifiable information. Such information, which is collected passively using various technologies, cannot presently be used to specifically identify you.

 

As is true of most web sites, we gather certain information automatically and store it in log files. This information includes internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, internet service provider (ISP), referring/exit pages, operating system, date/time stamp, and click stream data. EarlyBird Funding may store such information itself or such information may be included in databases owned and maintained by EarlyBird Funding affiliates, agents or service providers. This Site may use such information and pool it with other information to track, for example, the total number of visitors to our Site, the number of visitors to each page of our Site, the domain names of our visitors' Internet service providers, and how our users use and interact with the Services. Also, in an ongoing effort to better understand and serve the users of the Services, EarlyBird Funding often conducts research on its customer demographics, interests and behaviour based on the Personal Data and other information provided to us.

 

This research may be compiled and analysed on an aggregate basis. EarlyBird Funding may share this non-identifiable and aggregate data with its affiliates, agents and business partners, but this type of non-identifiable and aggregate information does not identify you personally. EarlyBird Funding may also disclose aggregated user statistics in order to describe our Services to current and prospective business partners and to other third parties for other lawful purposes.

 

In operating this Site, we may also use a technology called "cookies." A cookie is a piece of information that the computer that hosts our Site gives to your browser when you access the Site.

Also, if you provide Personal Data in order to obtain access to the Services, we will use your Personal Data to provide you with access to such services and to monitor your use of such services.

  1. Our Disclosure of Your Personal Data and Other Information

 

We will share your personal information with third parties only in the ways that are described in this privacy policy. We consider this information to be a vital part of our relationship with you. There are, however, certain circumstances in which we may share your Personal Data with certain third parties without further notice to you, as set forth below:

 

Business Transfers: As we develop our business, we might sell or buy businesses or assets. In the event of a corporate sale, merger, reorganization, dissolution or similar event, Personal Data may be part of the transferred assets and you will be notified via email and/or a prominent notice on our Web site of any change in ownership or uses of your personal information, as well as any choices you may have regarding your personal information,

 

Related Companies: We may also share your Personal Data with our Related Companies for purposes consistent with this Privacy Policy.

 

Agents, Consultants and Related Third Parties: EarlyBird Funding, like many businesses, sometimes hires other companies to perform certain business-related functions. Examples of such functions include mailing information, maintaining databases, ID verification, processing applications, shipping and fulfilment, and processing payments and completing transactions. When we employ another company to perform a function of this nature, we only provide them with the information that they need to perform their specific function. These companies are authorized to use your personal information only as necessary to provide these services to us.

 

Legal Requirements: EarlyBird Funding may disclose your Personal Data if required to do so by law or in the good faith belief that such action is necessary to;

 

  1. comply with a legal obligation,

We follow generally accepted standards to protect the personal information submitted to us, both during transmission and once we receive it.
