Collection of personal data

Yogupay first collects information about you and about the person to whom you are sending money (your "Beneficiary") from the data you supply on the Yogupay application (the "App"). When you provide information to Yogupay, through the App or otherwise, you are warranting to Yogupay that all of the information you provide to us about yourself and about your Beneficiary is accurate and complete. In providing the personal data of any individual other than yourself to us during your use of our services, you promise that you have obtained consent from such individuals to disclose their personal data to us, as well as their consent to our collection, use and disclosure of such personal data, for the purposes set out in this Privacy Policy. Yogupay is relying on your warranty when Yogupay provides the services to you. The information you provide includes personal data, which is defined as information that can be used, on its own or with other information, to identify you or your Beneficiary. Please also ensure that your beneficiaries are aware of this notice and that the provisions of this notice are clearly communicated to them.

We may collect, record and use information about you in physical and electronic form and will hold, use and otherwise process this data in accordance with the Data Protection Legislation of The United Kingdom and as set out in this Policy.

Yogupay uses this information to provide its services to you, and to help protect you, the Yogupay service, your Beneficiary and the general public from mistakes, fraud, money-laundering and other problems.

Yogupay may also collect information from your mobile phone or other device from which you access the Yogupay App, including your IP (Internet Protocol) address, operating system, device identification information, and other information associated with your access to and use of the App. Yogupay may also collect information about the websites you have visited prior to accessing the Yogupay service.

Yogupay may verify and confirm all of the information that you provide to us (or that we otherwise collect from your accessing the Yogupay App) with third parties, including the financial institution that issued the payment card you propose to use, and the telecommunications company or financial institution through which your money is sent to your Beneficiary. Yogupay may also verify such information with identity verification services, electronic databases, social media companies and credit reporting agencies. Yogupay may share your information with the banks, telecommunications providers and other financial services firms who facilitate payment to your Beneficiary. From time to time, Yogupay may require you and/or your Beneficiary to provide us with additional information and/or documentation to confirm your identity and your eligibility to use the Yogupay service.

No method of transmission over the internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure. Although Yogupay uses strong methods to protect the data that you provide to us, and we regularly test our information protection practices and technology, Yogupay cannot absolutely guarantee its security. Once we have received Your information, we will use strict procedures and security features to try to prevent unauthorised access.We will, however, notify you of any breach or other compromise that affects your data, promptly and in compliance with applicable law.

Protecting your own information

It is important to keep your password secure to prevent fraudulent use of your account. Do not disclose your password to anyone else and especially anyone who requests it from you by telephone or email. Yogupay will never ask you to provide your password or personal information via email. Please be aware of the following:

  • Change your password regularly and avoid using the same password on other websites to prevent hackers from access to your account;
  • Avoid simple passwords that can easily be guessed;
  • Be aware that public WiFi networks are risky and hackers may capture your online transactions and personal information. Only connect to a network you can trust;
  • If you use a shared computer, make sure you log out immediately after you have finished using the website; and
  • Beware of ‘phishing’ where criminals may attempt to steal your information by sending you bogus emails.

We take every reasonable step to ensure that your personal information is only retained for as long as it is required for the purposes set out in this Policy. Therefore, we will only keep the information we collect about you for as long as required for the purposes set out above, or as required to comply with any legal or regulatory obligations to which we are subject. This will involve us regularly reviewing our files to check that information is accurate, up-to-date and still required.

In addition, after you have ceased to be a Customer, we may take steps to delete your personal information or hold it in a form which no longer identifies you (for example, we may still use your data in an anonymised format for research and other business purposes). The period for which we will retain information about you will vary depending on the type of information and the purposes that we use it for. In general, unless applicable law requires a longer retention period, we will keep our records for as long as you are our Customer and for minimum of five and maximum of ten years after the end of your relationship with us.
