We collect and use your information for a variety of reasons. We need some information to enter into and perform our contract, for example your contact and payment details. Some information processing is required by law due to our anti-fraud screening obligations or in the public interest such as making sure we verify our customers’ identities. Some information is processed because you have given your consent to that, which can be withdrawn in your account preferences and settings. Other information we collect and use because we have legitimate business interests, having taken into account your rights, interests and freedoms.
We may use your Personal Information to:
• Create and administer your Etor account and generally for accounting, billing, maintenance of legal documentation and claim and dispute management.

We may make automated decisions on certain matters. For example, we may do this to decide whether we can provide our services to you based on a credit check/risk profiling. Depending on the outcome of the credit check/risk profiling, a decision will be reached automatically as to whether we are able to provide products or services to you based on your credit worthiness.
Other significant automated decision-making that uses your personal data may also be employed, to protect accounts and to uphold our Terms of Service. In addition, if the information provided during any identity verification or onboarding process (including self-reported information, information that is derived from your ID document, proof of address, or any other document provided by you, or your IP address or browser location information) suggests that you may be in breach of our Terms of Service or may have provided false or inaccurate information, your account may be automatically restricted. During an account lockout, you may be unable to view your positions, make any trades, or open or close any orders.
We may also occasionally communicate company news, updates, promotions and related information relating to similar products and services provided by Etor. We may also administer a contest, promotion, survey or other site features as will be more explained on the website.
We may share personal data with third parties to help us with our marketing and promotional projects, or sending marketing communications.

To the extent required by law, we aim to carry out balancing tests when significant data processing activities are justified on the basis of our legitimate interests, in particular:
• to provide services you have requested;
• to monitor, improve and protect the services on our website and apps, in particular by looking at how they are used, testing alternatives (e.g. by “A/B testing”, and running “beta” version trials), and by learning from feedback and comments you provide;
• to personalise our website, apps and services;
• by publishing de-identified records of market data, including trading records, for third party monitoring and research purposes;
• to monitor customer accounts to prevent, investigate and/or report misconduct such as spam, misrepresentation, security incidents, market manipulation or crime (such as fraud), in accordance with applicable law, and to cooperate with authorities seeking to do the same;
• to investigate any complaints received from you or from others;
• in connection with legal claims, compliance, regulatory or investigative purposes (including disclosure in connection with legal process or litigation); and
• to invite individuals to take part in market research and beta tests.
