- Personal Information We Collect
When you visit our Sites, we collect two types of information from you; Personal Information, which you actively provide us, and Information automatically collected from your devices.
(a) Personal Information that we collect about you. Personal Information is any information that relates to an identified or identifiable individual. The Personal Information that you provide directly to us through our Sites will be apparent from the context in which you provide the data. In particular:
When you register for an account we collect your full name, email address, and account log-in credentials.
Different uses cases and applications of our Services require the collection of different categories of information. The Licensee will determine the information it collects.
You may also choose to submit information to us via other methods, including: (i) in response to marketing or other communications, (ii) through social media or online forums, (iii) through participation in an offer, program or promotion, (iv) in connection with an actual or potential business relationship with us, or (v) by giving us your business card or contact details at trade shows or other events.

– Usage data, such as time spent on the Sites, pages visited, links clicked, language preferences, and the pages that led or referred you to our Sites.
- How We Use Personal Information
(a) Our products and services. We use Personal Information to facilitate the business relationships we have with our Users, to comply with our financial regulatory and other legal obligations, and to pursue our legitimate business interests. However, we do not warrant that we are in compliance with all applicable law and cannot warrant that our Licensees or Users use the Software in a manner that is compliant with applicable laws. We also use Personal Information to complete payment transactions and to provide payment-related services to our Users.
(b) Marketing and events-related communications. We may send you email marketing communications about Custom Group products and services, invite you to participate in our events or surveys, or otherwise communicate with you for marketing purposes, provided that we do so in accordance with the consent requirements that are imposed by applicable law. When we collect your business contact details through our participation at trade shows or other events, we may use the information to follow-up with you regarding an event, send you information that you have requested on our products and services and, with your permission, include you on our marketing information campaigns.
- How We Disclose Personal Information.
We do not sell or rent Personal Information to marketers or unaffiliated third parties. We share your Personal Information with trusted entities, as outlined below.
(a) Service providers. We share Personal Information with a limited number of our service providers. We have service providers that provide services on our behalf, such as identity verification services, website hosting, data analysis, information technology and related infrastructure, customer service, email delivery, and auditing services. These service providers may need to access Personal Information to perform their services. We authorise such service providers to use or disclose the Personal Information only as necessary to perform services on our behalf or comply with legal requirements. We require such service providers to contractually commit to protect the security and confidentiality of Personal Information they process on our behalf.
(b) Business partners. We share Personal Information with third party business partners when this is necessary to provide our Custom Group Services to our Users. Examples of third parties to whom we may disclose Personal Information for this purpose are banks and payment method providers (such as credit card networks) when we provide payment processing services, and the professional services firms that we partner with to deliver the Software or communication.
(d) Corporate transactions. In the event that we enter into, or intend to enter into, a transaction that alters the structure of our business, such as a reorganisation, merger, sale, joint venture, assignment, transfer, change of control, or other disposition of all or any portion of our business, assets or stock, we may share Personal Information with third parties for the purpose of facilitating and completing the transaction.
(e) Compliance and harm prevention. We share Personal Information as we believe necessary: (i) to comply with applicable law, or payment method rules; (ii) to enforce our contractual rights; (iii) to protect the rights, privacy, safety and property of The Custom Group, you or others; and (iv) to respond to requests from courts, law enforcement agencies, regulatory agencies, and other public and government authorities, which may include authorities outside your country of residence.
