If you do not agree with our policies and practices, your choice is not to use the Resources. By accessing or using the Resources, you indicate that you understand, accept, and consent to the practices described in this Policy. Unless an alternative lawful basis for processing personal data is available to the Company, the Company requires Users' permission to collect, use, and disclose personal data, with some exceptions. The exceptions are determined by applicable law and can include times where legal, medical, or security reasons make it impossible or impractical to seek consent.
The Company collects the following data from all Users:

The Company does not sell or share user personal data with third parties for their direct marketing, except with users’ consent.
The Company provides software Services as defined in the User Agreement. The Company may collect data from its Clients in order to perform such services (the “Services”). You acknowledge, accept, and agree that without the data collected as set forth above, the Company may not be able to provide the Services and most functionality of the Application.
The security of your personal data is very important to the Company. The Company uses physical, electronic, and administrative measures designed to secure Users' personal data from accidental loss and from unauthorized access, use, alteration, and disclosure. The Company stores all information Users provide to it behind firewalls on our secure servers. Any payment transactions will be encrypted (using SSL technology). The safety and security of User data also depends on each User. Where the Company has given a User (or where a User has chosen) a password for access to certain parts of the Resources, each User is responsible for keeping its password confidential. The Company asks each User not to share its password with anyone.
The Company securely stores User data on servers leased from a reputable third-party hosting service located in the United States. Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the Internet is not completely secure. Although the Company does its best to protect Users' personal data, the Company cannot guarantee the security of Users' personal information transmitted to its Resources. Any transmission of personal data is at each User's own risk. The Company is not responsible for circumvention of any privacy settings or security measures contained on the Resources.
The Company may process, store, and transfer Users' personal data in and to a foreign country, with different privacy laws that may or may not be as comprehensive as the data privacy laws applicable to a particular User. In these circumstances, the governments, courts, law enforcement, or regulatory agencies of that country may be able to obtain access to a User's personal data through the laws of the foreign country.
With your express permission, we may access your contact list on your mobile device so that you can identify your contacts on LemFi to allow you to send money to friends and family on LemFi by searching for their phone number, email address or username. We transmit and use this information to help you easily filter your friends on ‘LemFi’ and to help you transact with your friends and contacts if you choose to connect your contact list information with your Account. We only access your contact list information with your explicit permission. For example, when you provide us with information about your contacts, we may use it to let you know which of your contacts have also signed up for our Services so you can send money to them for free and quicker.
We will not send messages to your contacts or make use of the data for any other purpose.
The Company retains user profile, transaction, and other personal data for as long as a user maintains their account and except as otherwise permitted or required by applicable law or regulation, only for as long as necessary to fulfill the purposes the Company collected it for, including for the purposes of satisfying any legal, accounting, or reporting requirements.
The Company may also retain certain information if necessary, for purposes of safety, security, and fraud prevention. For example, if the Company deactivates a User’s account because of unsafe behavior or security incidents, the Company may retain certain information about that account to prevent that User from opening a new account in the future.
Users may request deletion of their account at any time. Following such requests, the Company deletes the data that it is not required to retain for purposes of regulatory, tax, insurance, litigation, or other legal requirements. For example, the Company retains location, device, and usage data for these purposes for a minimum of 7 years; while it retains such data, it may also use it for purposes of safety, security, fraud prevention and detection, and research and development. In certain circumstances, the Company may be unable to delete a user’s account, such as if there’s an outstanding credit on the account or an unresolved claim or dispute. Upon resolution of the issue preventing deletion, the Company will delete the account as described above.
If you decide that you no longer wish us to keep or use information or you want the information to be revised or updated, please feel free to contact us. We will remove or amend the information as appropriate in accordance with our Policy and applicable legislative and regulatory requirements.
Under some circumstances the Company may anonymize Users' personal information so that it can no longer be associated with a particular User. The Company reserves the right to use such anonymous and de-identified data for any legitimate business purpose without further notice to the relevant User or its consent.

The Company may request specific information from a User to help the Company confirm its identity and its right to access, and to provide such User with the personal data that the Company holds about it or make its requested changes pursuant to applicable privacy law.. Applicable privacy law may allow or require the Company to refuse to provide a User with access to some or all of the personal data that the Company holds about such User, or the Company may have destroyed, erased, or made such User's personal information anonymous in accordance with the Company's record retention obligations and practices. If the Company cannot provide a User with access to its personal information, the Company will inform such User of the reasons why, subject to any legal or regulatory restrictions. In order for the Company to verify a User's identity, it will generally either require the successful login to such User's account and/or the matching of sufficient information a User provides to the Company to such User's personal information maintained within the Company's systems. Although the Company tries to limit the personal data collected in connection with a User request to exercise its rights, certain requests may require the Company to obtain additional personal information from the relevant User. In certain circumstances, the Company may decline a request to exercise a User's right to know and right to deletion, particularly where the Company is unable to verify such User's identity. You consent to an electronic database search by us in order to verify your identity. We shall retain records of the contents and results of such searches in accordance with (this Policy and) all current and applicable laws. We further reserve the right, if considered appropriate at our sole discretion, to provide relevant information regarding you and your transactions to law enforcement agencies.
If you are a California resident, you may designate an authorized agent to make a request to access or a request to delete on your behalf. To do so, you must: (1) provide that authorized agent written and signed permission to submit such a request; and (2) verify your own identity directly with us. Please note, we may deny a request from an authorized agent that does not submit proof that they have been authorized by you to act on your behalf. We will respond to your authorized agent's request if they submit proof that they are registered with the California Secretary of State to be able to act on your behalf, or submit evidence you have provided them with power of attorney pursuant to California Probate Code section 4121 to 4130. We may deny requests from authorized agents who do not submit proof that they have been authorized by you to act on their behalf, or are unable to verify their identity.
