Once your consent is given, other users of pleasepay platform/software, will be able to identify you, by typing your email address in the “add customer, add recipient”  sections of the software. It is used only to make that intuitive and easy to use experience of the pleasepay platform/software.

Pleasepay may also use your Personal Data to inform you of other products or services available from Pleasepay and its affiliates, where you have consented to be contacted for such purposes.

Pleasepay may disclose your Personal Data to any member of our group, which means our subsidiaries, our ultimate holding company and its subsidiaries, as defined in section 1159 of the UK Companies Act 2006.

The countries where data will be stored, processed and transferred

Your personal data collected by PleasePay may be stored and processed in the United Kingdom or any other country in which PleasePay or associated third parties maintain facilities.

Should PleasePay need to transfer your personal data within or outside the EEA, PleasePay will take all reasonable measures to safeguard the transfer of your personal data to third parties in a manner that complies with the GDPR.

Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure. Although we will do our best to protect your Personal Data, we cannot guarantee the security of your data transmitted to our site; any transmission is at your own risk. Once we have received your information, we will use strict procedures and security features to try to prevent unauthorised access.

How long the data will be retained

Retention of specific records may be necessary for one or more of the following reasons:

  1. To fulfil statutory or other regulatory requirements.
  2. To evidence events/agreements in case of disputes.
  3. To meet our operational needs.
  4. To meet any historical purposes.

Personal data that is collected and subsequently never used for any business purpose will be reviewed and may be destroyed at PleasePay’s discretion.

What happens if the data isn’t collected

Your personal data is required for communication and setting up a contractual agreement to provide products and services. Without this data PleasePay will not be able to communicate with you or enter into a contractual agreement with you. This includes both business and employment contracts.

PleasePay needs personal data to:

  1. enable consensual bilateral communications;
  2. engage in pre-contractual activities;
  3. honour contractual obligations; and
  4. enable it to employ people.

Without this data, PleasePay will not be able to perform these four primary activities.

The right to withdraw consent

In situations where PleasePay requests and receives your consent to perform processing, we are also obliged to stop such processing if you decide to withdraw your consent. Withdrawing consent is as straightforward as giving consent. Withdrawing consent cannot be back-dated so it has no effect on processing already performed during the period of consent. Consent withdrawal is equal to account deletion.

The right to access, change, delete, restrict, object, request a copy

You have rights regarding the personal data we store on your behalf. These are:

  1. access to a copy of your personal data;
  2. object to processing that you object to;
  3. stop receiving direct marketing material;
  4. object to decisions being taken by automated means;
  5. have inaccurate personal data rectified, blocked, erased or destroyed;
  6. lodge a complaint with the Information Commissioner’s Office;
  7. claim compensation for damages caused by a breach of the GDPR.

Should you ever wish to exercise any of these rights, please contact the Data Protection Officer.

The right to complain to the regulator

You have the right to lodge a complaint with the Information Commissioner’s Office if you think that your personal data has been inappropriately used.

Data security & integrity

The PleasePay website secures your Personal Data from unauthorised access, use or disclosure. The Website secures the Personal Data you provide on computer servers in a controlled, secure environment, protected from unauthorised access, use or disclosure. When personal information (such as a credit card number) is transmitted to other websites, it is protected using encryption, such as HTTPS.

Where we have given you (or where you have chosen) a password which enables you to access certain parts of our site, you are responsible for keeping this password confidential. We ask you not to share a password with anyone.

We do our best to protect your data by using encryption. However, when generating an invoice your data might be present in memory of our servers in an encrypted form until you have given your consent and have SET a PASSWORD as requested in the consent email in order to ENCRYPT with ZERO-KNOWLEDGE. We do make sure our servers do not store RAM on file-system though. Your data might shortly be present in our databases in an encrypted form but not using zero-knowledge since we need to be able to decrypt it to generate an invoice so that email request is not lost. We do not store email copies on our relay servers. Please also note that if you opt to send your invoice via email we cannot guarantee data protection when email is being sent over the Internet; nor can we guarantee data protection on the email servers where your customers have email accounts since it is beyond our control. Finally, data at rest in our databases is stored in encrypted form by means of asymmetric encryption using zero-knowledge policy, i.e. only you can access the data by means of your password, which we cannot restore or reset on demand even in emergency cases. So, please make sure you set a meaningful password hint which we also encrypt using zero-knowledge policy.

Children under thirteen

Our Services are not intended for use by children under the age of 13, and such use is prohibited by our Terms of Service. We do not knowingly collect personally identifiable information from children under 13. If you become aware that a child has provided us with Personal Information, please contact us as set forth in this Privacy Policy.

Changes to this statement

Pleasepay will occasionally update this Statement of Privacy to reflect company and customer feedback. Pleasepay encourages you to periodically review this Statement to be informed of how Pleasepay is protecting your information.
