Privacy matters to eFounders and we strive to ensure that our security measures on personal data respect and protect your privacy and also that we are in strict compliance with the data privacy laws in effect.

This Privacy Policy describes our rules on managing, processing and storing personal data submitted in the context of our services.

The term “personal data” refers to information associated with the name of an individual or his or her personal identity as opposed to information associated with a commercial entity or business.

Data collected

Briq collects and processes the following data: email, first name, last name, country, profile picture, transaction history and credentials to various third party services. Most of this data is imported from third party services but we keep a copy in order to operate the service properly.

The data submitted via Briq's Website and/or via Briq’s services should not include any sensitive personal data, such as Government identifiers (i.e. social security, driving licence, or taxpayer identification numbers), credit card or personal bank card numbers, medical records or particulars connected with applications for care or treatment associated with private individuals.

In addition, Briq does not disclose your personal data to third parties, except if:

  • you (or your account administrator acting on your behalf) requests or authorises disclosure thereof;
  • the disclosure is required to process transactions or supply services which you have requested (i.e.for the purposes of processing an acquisition card with credit-card issuing companies);
  • Briq is compelled to do so by a government authority or a regulatory body, in the case of a court order, a summons to appear in court or any other similar requisition from a government or the judiciary, or to establish or defend a legal application; or,
  • the third party is acting as an agent or subcontractor of Briq in the carrying out of services (for example: Briq uses the services of a telecommunications company).

Purposes

The principal purpose of collecting your personal data is to offer you a safe, optimum, efficient and personalised experience. To this end, you agree and accept that we may use your personal data to:
