Nakirfa Ventures Investment Services Ltd (NViS) is a management consultancy operating in the UK.
NViS may change this policy from time to time by updating this page. You should check this page from time to time to ensure that you are happy with any changes.
This policy is effective from 03/04/2020
For people visiting our website, signing up to our mailing list or making enquiries about our services we may collect data that allows us to:
We collect many different types of data. This includes information that is necessary for us to provide our products and services, to comply with our legal and regulatory obligations or to serve our legitimate business interests.
Below we list the key types of data we collect, hold, use and transfer. Not all of this information is collected from every member and the examples given for each category are intended to help explain their meaning, rather than being an exhaustive list.
The legal basis for this processing is our legitimate interests; monitoring and improving our website and services, complying with our duties and exercising our rights under a contract for the sale of goods to our customers and complying with any legal obligations for legal claims required by companies of the law.
Our website is not intended for children and we do not knowingly collect data relating to children.
Under the EU General Data Protection Regulation, we can only process your personal data if we have a lawful basis for doing so. The reasons we process your personal data are:
By ‘legitimate interest’ we mean the interest of our business in conducting and managing our business to enable us to give you the best service/product and the best and most secure experience.
Our legitimate interests are balanced against your right to privacy and when we rely on a legitimate interest to process your data we will tell you.
You always have a right to object and you can do this by speaking to a member of staff or emailing email@example.com
Below we outline how we use your personal data, our reasons for doing so and the type of data we are referring to. Note that we may process your personal data for more than one lawful ground depending on the specific purpose for which we are using your data.
We may share your personal data to any member of our group of companies (this means our subsidiaries, our ultimate holding company and all its subsidiaries) insofar as reasonably necessary for the purposes, and on the legal bases, set out in this policy.
We may also disclose data to our suppliers or subcontractors such as Mailchimp for email newsletters
We also use the payment providers Paypal, and Google pay, if customers select these options as a method of payment.
We may need to confirm your identity before we provide you with membership or services to you or your business. Once you have become a member, we will also share your personal information as needed to help detect fraud and money laundering risks. We use Fraud Prevention Agencies to help us with this.
Both LCCU and the fraud prevention agency can only use your personal information if we have a proper reason to do so. It must be needed either for us to obey the law or for a ‘legitimate interest’.
By ‘legitimate interest’ we mean the interest of our business in conducting and managing our business to enable us to give you the best service/product and the best and most secure experience. Our legitimate interests are balanced against your right to privacy.
We will use the information to:
NViS or a FPA may allow law enforcement agencies to access your personal information. This is to support their duty to detect, investigate, prevent and prosecute crime.
FPAs can keep personal information for different lengths of time. They can keep your data for up to six years if they find a risk of fraud or money laundering.
The information we use:
We and FPAs may process your personal information in systems that look for fraud by studying patterns in the data. We may find that an account is being used in ways that fraudsters work, or we may notice that an account is being used in a way that is unusual for you or your business. Where we or the FPA decide there is a risk of fraud, we may stop activity on your account(s) or block access to them. FPA will also keep a record of any risk associated with you or your business. This may result in other organisations refusing to provide you with products or services or to employ you.
Fraud prevention agencies can hold your personal data for different periods of time, and if you are considered to pose a fraud or money laundering risk, your data can be held for up to six years.
International transfers of your personal data
We provide information about the circumstances in which your personal data may be transferred to countries outside the European Economic Area (EEA).
We are committed to ensuring that your information is secure. In order to prevent unauthorised access or disclosure, we have put in place suitable physical, electronic and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the information we collect online.
