By using any of our sites or applications within our website network (“Websites”) or our Services, you consent to the collection, use and transfer of your information under the terms of this policy.
When you visit, register, log-in, to your Website or Services you may be asked to provide certain information about yourself including your name, contact details, and password. You may also be asked to share your social and business networking details. You are under no obligation to provide this information, but we may not be able to provide you with certain Services, or personalise your experience or tailor our Services for you. We may also collect information about your usage of the Websites as well as information about you from emails or letters you send to us, or during telephone conversations between us. We may also collect statistical information about users of our Websites, but this will not personally identify you.
When you visit our Websites we automatically log your IP address (the unique address which identifies your computer on the internet) which is automatically recognised by our web server. We use IP addresses to help us administer our Websites and to collect broad demographic information for aggregate use.
Curo and/or its affiliates occasionally send e-mail and promotional notifications to users of its network of sites, products and Services. Curo may also engage third-party vendors to act on our behalf and administer our e-mail services, which would require disclosure of the e-mail address you provided to Curo to such vendors, acting on our instructions. We may use this information in the aggregate to analyse the effectiveness of our e-mail and promotional notifications and site usage, either by Curo, or through our third-party e-mail provider. If you wish to discontinue receipt of e-mail or promotional notifications from Curo, please contact Curo at email@example.com, with the word “remove” in the subject line to be removed from our promotional mailing lists.
We may collect certain non-personally identifiable information about our visitors when you visit many of our Web pages, such as the type of browser you are using (e.g., Chrome, FireFox, Internet Explorer), the type of operating system you are using, (e.g., Windows 2000, 2007 or Mac OS), the domain name of your Internet service provider, your geographical location and what pages you visit.
We use the non-personally identifiable information that we collect to improve the design and content of our site and to enable us to better personalize your Internet experience. We also may use this information in the aggregate to analyse site usage. You cannot be identified from this information and it is used for statistical purposes to assist us in developing the business and in providing an effective service on our Websites.
Cookies are small amounts of information which we store on your computer. Unless you have indicated your objection when disclosing your details to us, our system will issue cookies to your computer when you log on to our Websites. Cookies make it easier for you to use our Websites during future visits. They also allow us to monitor website traffic, estimate audience size and patterns, improve our Websites, and personalise the content of our Websites for you. Cookies are specific to the server that created them and cannot be accessed by other servers, which means they cannot be used to track your movements round the web. Although they do identify a user’s computer, cookies do not personally identify customers or passwords. You may set up your computer to reject cookies, but you may not be able to use certain features of our Websites. If you do not wish to receive cookies in the future, please disable them in your web browser.
Your information will enable us to provide you with access to all parts of our Websites and to supply the Services you have requested. It will also enable us to contact you where necessary concerning these Services and to process bills. We may also use and analyse the information we collect so that we can administer, support, improve and develop our business.
In particular, we may use your information to contact you for your views on our Services and to notify you occasionally about important changes or developments to the Websites or our Services. Further, where you have consented, we might also use your information to let you know about other Services which we offer which may be of interest to you, and may contact you by post, telephone or email. If you change your mind about being contacted in the future, please let us know.
The information you provide to us will be held on computers in the UK and may be accessed by our own employees, trusted partners or third party suppliers, located both within and outside the European Economic Area. We may also pass aggregate information on the usage of the Websites to third parties but this will not include information that can be used to identify you.
We appreciate that unsolicited commercial mail is a nuisance. We never disclose your details to any third party for marketing purposes unless we have your express permission, which can be withdrawn at any time.
If our business enters or considers entering a joint venture with another business entity, or is sold or merged, or considers a sale or merger, your information may be disclosed to our new or prospective business partners or owners.
Countries outside the European Economic Area do not always have strong data protection laws. However, we will always take steps to ensure that your information is used by third parties in accordance with this policy.
Unless required to do so by law, or in connection with legal or prospective legal proceedings, we will not otherwise share, sell or distribute any of the information you provide to us without your consent.
We employ security measures to protect your information from access by unauthorised persons and against unlawful processing, accidental loss, destruction and damage. In particular, your data will be stored on a dedicated server within a secure data centre, and will be retained in line with our data retention policy. Secure server software (SSL) is used to encrypt financial information you input before it is sent to us. While we cannot ensure or guarantee that loss, misuse or alteration of data will not occur, we use our best efforts to prevent this.
You are entitled to see the information held about you and you may ask us to make any necessary changes to ensure that it is accurate and kept up to date. If you wish to do this, please contact us.
We may disclose information we maintain in response to legal proceedings, for example, in response to a court order or a subpoena. We also may transfer information about you if we are acquired by or merged with another company.
This Privacy Statement is part of, and subject to, the Terms and Conditions applicable to products, services and activities available through www.curo.co.uk.
All comments, queries and requests relating to our use of your information are welcomed and should be addressed to: firstname.lastname@example.org
