Your payment method information that you may use to effect or receive payments from SPARTAEX are passed on to a third-party payment processor(s) which is/are based in the EU or USA and with which SPARTAEX has a contractual agreement to safeguard your rights. Unless you create an account with us and conduct transactions, we do not retain your payment method information.
Once we do not have any obligation to providing you with a service you requested, nor an obligation to hold Personal Information for regulatory or legal purpose, we will anonymise or dispose of your Personal Information in line with acceptable industry and security standards so that this cannot be subsequently retrieved and associated to you.
Where we cannot directly remove such records, such as in archived backups, we will retain a log of which Personal Information should be removed if ever the backup data is restored.
We may use Automated Decision Making in order to improve your experience, or to help fight financial crime. For example, so that we can provide you with a fast and efficient service, we may use Automated Decision Making to verify your identity documents, or to confirm the accuracy of the information you have provided to us. None of our Automated Decision Making processes have a legal effect on you.

We will also give you a copy of the Personal Information we have retained. There may be a charge for providing you additional copies of your Personal Information to cover administrative costs.
Right of Erasure – You have the right to ask us to delete your data when it is no longer necessary, or no longer subject to a legal obligation to which SPARTAEX is subject to.

If you refuse to prove your identity, we may decline to take actions in respect of your data, save restricting processing, until we can ensure that such actions are the true wish of the data subject.
In the carrying out of our services we may use automated processing and profiling to reduce the risks of fraud, money laundering and abuse of our services. Through this automated processing, we carry out an analysis of your identification, transactional and behavioural patterns.
We may not able to provide you with some or all our services if you do not wish this automated processing to be carried out.
We have implemented technical and organisational security measures to ensure the confidentiality of your Personal Information and to protect your Personal Information from loss, misuse, alteration or destruction.
All financially sensitive and/or credit information is transmitted via SSL technology and encrypted in our database. Only authorised SPARTAEX personnel are permitted access to your Personal Data, and these personnel are required to treat the information as highly confidential. The security measures will be reviewed regularly in light of new and relevant legal and technical developments.
Where you have consented to, or we are obliged to pass on Personal Information to third parties to provide you with a requested service or in the carrying out of a regulatory or legal obligation, we will request that the same levels of technical and organisational security measure be applied through contractual arrangements, where possible.
Technical and organisational security measures in place will, from time to time, be reviewed in line with legal and technical developments.
In the event of a personal data breach or the failure of the measures of protection of such information we will immediately notify you without undue delay.
You are responsible for keeping your account passcode, passwords, membership numbers, Digital Currency Addresses, codes and pin numbers safe and secure. Do not share those with anyone. If there is an unauthorised use or any other breach of security involving your information, you must notify us below as soon as possible.
Your funding of Bitcoin and other Digital Currencies, may be recorded on a public blockchain. Public blockchains are distributed ledgers, intended to immutably record transactions across wide networks of computer systems.
Because blockchains are decentralized or third-party networks which are not controlled or operated by SPARTAEX or its affiliates, we are not able to erase, modify, or alter personal data from such networks. Many blockchains are open to forensic analysis which can lead to deanonymization and the unintentional revelation of private financial information, especially when blockchain data is combined with other data.
If you feel that we have not addressed your questions or concerns adequately, you may contact our data controller.
