  1. Purpose

This Privacy Policy aims to give you information on why and how we collect and process your personal data.

It is intended to inform you about your privacy rights and how the data protection principles set out in the EU (European Union) General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”) and the post-Brexit privacy law publicly known as the UK GDPR protect you.

It is important that you read this Policy together with any other notice or policy we may provide on specific occasions when we are collecting or processing personal data about you so that you are fully aware of why and how we are using your data. This Policy supplements other notices and policies and is not intended to override them.

 

  1. About us

In the context of this Policy, Hoppacard Holding B.V.. is a Data Controller. The controller of your personal data is the legal entity that determines the “means” and the “purposes” of any processing activities that it carries out.

 

  1. Data Protection Officer

We have appointed a Data Protection Officer (“DPO”) who is responsible for overseeing questions in relation to this Privacy Policy. If you have any questions or complaints related to this Privacy Policy or our privacy practices, or if you want to exercise your legal rights, please contact our DPO at dpo@hoppacard.com.

 

  1. Privacy Complaints  

You have the right to make a complaint about the way we process your personal data to a supervisory authority. If you reside in an EEA (European Economic Area) Member State, you have the right to make a complaint about the way we process your personal data to the supervisory authority in the EEA Member State of your habitual residence, place of work or place of the alleged infringement, or The Bulgarian Data Protection Authority (Commission for Personal Data Protection).

We would, however, appreciate the chance to deal with your concerns before you approach a data protection regulatory authority, so please feel free to contact us in the first instance.

  1. Third-party links

Our website and any applicable web browser, as well as our mobile application or application programming interface required to access the Services (“Applications”), may include links to third-party websites, plugins, and applications (“Third-Party Sites”).

For example, Hoppacard may use aggregated transactional information for commercial purposes, such as trend analysis and the use of data analytics to obtain learnings and insight around payment transaction patterns and usage.

To the extent that Internet Protocol (IP) addresses (or similar identifiers) are clearly defined to be personal information under any local law, and where such local law is applicable to Services, we will manage such identifiers as personal information.

Please note that Hoppacard provides services to both individual consumers and businesses and this privacy policy applies to both and should be read and interpreted accordingly.

We use information we collect about you to provide you with the products we offer, to notify you about changes to our products and to improve our products. Your information may also be used to contact you about your account, your use of the Services, to alert you to potential problems, as well as to respond to your questions to us. We also use this information to provide you with information about other products we or selected third parties offer which are similar to the ones you have used or exhibited interest in, or we think may be of interest to you.

10.2. Lawful basis

We will only use your personal data when the applicable legislation allows us to. In other words, we must ensure that we have a lawful basis for such use. Most commonly, we will use your personal data in the following circumstances:

  • performance of a contract – we use this basis for provision of our Services;
  • legitimate interests – our interests (or those of a third party), where we make sure we use this basis as far as your interests and individual rights do not override those interests;
  • compliance with a legal obligation – processing your personal data where we need to comply with a legal obligation, we are subject to;
  • consent – freely given, specific, informed, and unambiguous indication of your wishes by which you, by a statement or by a clear affirmative action, signify agreement to the processing of personal data relating to you.

10.3. Marketing

We may use your Identity Data, Contact Data, Technical Data, Transactional Data, Usage Data and Profile Data to form a view on what we think you may want or need, or what may be of interest to you. This is how we decide which products, services and offers may be relevant for you. You will receive marketing communications from us if you have requested information from us and consented to receive marketing communications, or if you have purchased from us and you have not opted out of receiving such communications. We will use your Marketing and Communications Data for our respective activities.

10.4. Third-party marketing

We will get your opt-in consent before we share your personal data with any third party for marketing purposes.

If you wish to get an explanation as to how the processing for the new purpose is compatible with the original purpose, please contact us.

10.8. Sale or transfer of business

We may also need to process your data in connection with or during the negotiation of any merger, financing, acquisition, bankruptcy, dissolution, transaction or proceeding involving all or a part of our shares, business, or assets. This will be based on our legitimate interests in carrying out such transaction, or to meet our legal obligations.

 

  1. Disclosure of personal data

We will not disclose your personal information to anyone except as described in this policy.

We may share your personal information with other companies in the Group or our partner companies.

Your personal information (as necessary, but generally limited to full name and email address) may be shared with the recipient/sender of a payment in the context of the specific relevant transaction. This may involve transferring your personal data outside the European Economic Area (EEA) or the UK. We may share your personal information with third parties to provide you with the products we offer, including service providers, credit reference agencies and financial institutions. We may also share your personal information with third parties, including our or other applicable regulators and third parties you may have had dealings with, to prevent crime and reduce risk, if required to do so by law, where we deem it appropriate to do so, to respond to legal process, for the purpose of investigating a breach of third-party terms of business, or to protect the rights or property of Hoppacard, our customers or others.

 

  1. Data storage

The information that we collect from you may be transferred to, stored at, and processed by recipients located in destinations outside the European Economic Area (“EEA”). These countries may have data protection standards that are different to those of the territory in which you reside. We will take reasonable steps to ensure that the recipients will use and protect your information in a secure manner.

If we have given you (or if you have chosen) a password, access code or any other secure means or access or authentication which enables you to access certain parts of our site, you are responsible for keeping this password confidential and complying with our instructions. You must not share credentials with anyone else, and you authorise Hoppacard to act upon instructions and information from any person that enters your credentials.

The transmission of information via the Internet is not completely secure. Although we will do our best to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee the security of your data transmitted to our site. Once we have received your information, we will use strict procedures and security features to try to prevent unauthorised access.

 

  1. Data retention

To determine the appropriate retention period for personal data, we consider the amount, nature and sensitivity of the personal data, the potential risk of harm from unauthorised use or disclosure of your personal data, the purposes for which we process your personal data and whether we can achieve those purposes through other means, and the applicable legal, regulatory, tax, accounting, or other requirements.

Here are some factors we usually consider when determining how long we need to retain your personal data:

  • in the event of a complaint;
  • if we reasonably believe there is a prospect of litigation in respect to our relationship with you or if we consider that we need to keep information to defend possible future legal claims (e.g., email addresses and content, chats, letters will be kept up to 10 years following the end of our relationship, depending on the limitation period applicable in your country).
  • to comply with any applicable legal and/or regulatory requirements with respect to certain types of personal data:

– under the EU Anti-Money Laundering legislation (Anti-Money Laundering Directives) we are obliged to retain your personal data for a period of 5 years after the end of the relationship between us as a company and you as a customer; this period may be further extended in certain cases if so provided by and in accordance with the applicable legislation; the same is valid also under the anti-money laundering legislation of the UK;

– if information is needed for audit purposes and so forth;

  • in accordance with relevant industry standards or guidelines;
  • in accordance with our legitimate business need to prevent abuse of the promotions that we launch. We will retain a customer’s personal data for the time of the promotion and for a certain period after its end to prevent the appearance of abusive behaviour.

Please note that under certain condition(s), you can ask us to delete your data: see your legal rights below for further information. We will honour your deletion request ONLY if the condition(s) is met.

 

  1. Your legal rights

You have rights we need to make you aware of. The rights available to you depend on our reason for processing your personal data. If you need more detailed information or wish to exercise any of the rights set out below, please contact us.

 

  1. Charges

You will not have to pay a fee to access your personal data (or to exercise any of the other rights). However, we may charge a reasonable fee if your request is manifestly unfounded or excessive. Alternatively, we could refuse to comply with your request in these circumstances.

 

  1. Period for replying to a legitimate request

The statutory period under GDPR for us to reply to a legitimate request is one month. That period may be extended by two further months where necessary, considering the complexity and number of the requests. Please note that we may request that you provide some details necessary to verify your identity when you request to exercise a legal right regarding your personal data.

 

  1. Contact us

All comments, queries and requests relating to our use of your information are welcomed. If you wish to exercise any of your rights, you contact us by using dpo@hoppacard.com.

You should memorise your PIN when you receive it. If you need to keep the written version of the PIN or separately write the PIN down for future reference, you must never keep it with the Card. You must never disclose your PIN to any other person, not even us. If you have not protected your PIN and your Card is used without your knowledge using the correct PIN, this may be classified as gross negligence.

8.2. We reserve the right to update, change, remove, suspend, disable, or restrict access to or discontinue the Services or change any features, component or content thereof at any time, for any reason, without notice or liability to you, unless otherwise specified by these Terms and/or Applicable Laws.

8.3. The Issuer holds and maintains your Card Wallet, which allows you to store available types of fiat currency with the Issuer, and use the fiat currency to (i) purchase goods or services, (ii) obtain cash through ATM, (iii) make a payment to a third party; (iv) transfer value to another Card or account, (v) load credit or other value to a Card, or (vi) settle any other transactions that may be effected using the Card, in each case in accordance with these Terms (“Card Transactions”).

8.4. You can authorize a Transaction by:

  1. allowing a merchant to swipe the magnetic strip of the Card and the corresponding sales slip being signed; or
  2. inserting the Card into a chip & PIN device and the correct PIN being entered;
  3. providing relevant information to the merchant that allows the merchant to process the Transaction, for example, providing the merchant with the PAN, the Expiry Date and the CVV2 in the case of an internet or other non-face-to-face Transaction;
  4. relevant information being provided to the payment initiation service provider that allows the payment initiation service provider to process the Transaction;
  5. the Card is tapped against a “contactless” enabled reader and accepted by such reader.

8.5. If any of the methods of authorisation set out in Article 8. 4.. are used, we shall be entitled to assume that you have authorised a Transaction unless we were informed that the relevant details of the Card have been lost, stolen, or misappropriated prior the Transaction taking place.

8.6. You acknowledge the correctness of the amount of each Transaction which you authorise.

8.7. Once you have authorised a Transaction, the Transaction cannot be stopped or revoked. You may in certain circumstances be entitled to a refund in accordance with these Terms or the Terms of the Merchant that you have paid to.

8.8. On receipt of notification of your authorisation of a Transaction and the Transaction payment order from the merchant and/or authorised bank, normally we will deduct the value of the Transaction, plus any applicable fees and charges, from the available funds in the Account. We will execute the Transaction by crediting the account of the merchant’s or ATM operator’s or bank’s (as applicable) payment service provider by the end of the next Business Day following the notification. If the notification is received on a non-Business Day or after 4:30 pm on a Business Day, it will be deemed received on the next Business Day.

8.9. We are not liable if, for any reason, the affiliated merchants or authorised banks do not accept the Card, or accept it only partly, nor are we liable in the case of late delivery of, or failure to deliver, goods or services. In the event of disputes or complaints of any kind concerning goods or services, or the exercise of any right in this connection, you should contact the affiliated merchant and/or authorised ban and/or ATM operator.

8.10. It is your responsibility to ensure that there are available funds in your Account to cover any spend, allowing for any foreign exchange fees and other applicable fees under these Terms. Should the Account at any time and for any reason have a negative balance, you shall repay the excess amount immediately and in full.

8.11. For Card usage conducted in other currencies (other than the currency of the Card), you shall accept the exchange rate of the card scheme company, which can be found on their official website. Any changes in exchange rates may be applied immediately and without notice. The exchange rate, where applicable to a Transaction, will be shown in the E-statement. Different exchange rates may apply when reserving or debiting funds. Please be careful when opting to use a merchant’s, banks or ATM operators exchange rates as they are often less competitive that the card scheme’s exchange rate.

8.12. The maximum amount you may withdraw in cash shall be subject to a daily limit, irrespective of the available funds in the Account. We may charge a fee for withdrawal of cash. Some ATMs may charge an additional fee, which is not included in the fee schedule, however, will apply on top of the fees set out in the fee schedule. ATM withdrawals may also be subject to foreign exchange rates, maximum withdrawal limits, rules and regulations of the relevant ATM operator or bank. It is your responsibility to check whether any such additional fees apply, as they cannot be refunded once the cash has been withdrawn.

8.13. We have the right to review and change the spending limits on the Card at any time. You will be notified of any such changes via the Website and/or the App.

 

  1. Non-execution of a Transaction

9.1. In certain circumstances we may refuse to execute a Transaction that you have authorised. These circumstances include, but are not limited to:

  1. if we have reasonable concerns about the security of the Card or suspect the Card is being used in a fraudulent or unauthorised manner;
  2. if there are insufficient funds available to cover the Transaction and all associated fees at the time that we receive notification of the Transaction or if there is an outstanding shortfall on the balance of the Account;
  3. if we have reasonable grounds to believe you are acting in breach of these Terms;
  4. if there are errors, failures (mechanical or otherwise) or refusals by merchants, payment processors or payment schemes processing Transactions, or
  5. if we are required to do so by law.

9.2. Unless it would be unlawful for us to do so, where we refuse to complete a Transaction, we will notify you as soon as reasonably practicable that it has been refused and the reasons for the refusal, together, where relevant, with the procedure for correcting any factual errors that led to the refusal. Where the refusal is reasonably justified, we may charge you fee when we notify you that your payment request has been refused.

 

  1. Access to information on Transactions and available funds in the Account

10.1. Hoppacard allows you to see the available balance and transaction details on the Website and in the App. You must keep your login credentials safe and not disclose them to anyone.

10.2. We can, upon request, send you a statement by email setting out:

  1. a reference enabling you to identify each Transaction, the payer/payee, as well as other details transferred together with the Transaction;
  2. the amount of each Transaction;
