- Your consent.
A) Performance of a contract we enter with you
We process your personal data to provide you with the ADV2 services based on the Terms and Conditions that you accept when you sign up in our system.
We collect your data to set up and administer your ADV2 account.
Furthermore, we also process your data to ensure secure access to your ADV2 account when we send you a one-time password or other access codes.
We use your data to process transactions you make with your ADV2 account, such as transferring funds, making payments, adding money to a wallet, or withdraw funds.
We process your data when you obtain an IBAN. To achieve this, we share data with third parties who provide such services. You can find out more about this in the "Disclosure of personal data to third parties" section.
We may send you important information about the system, login confirmation, suspicious authorization attempts and completed transactions notifications, as well as provide technical and customer support.
We process personal data to assist you in resolving issues related to the use of ADV2, when you contact customer support via ticket, email, or phone.
B) Our legal obligation
We process your personal data to comply with our legal obligations, in particular the requirements of anti-money laundering and terrorist financing legislation, to verify and confirm your identity as part of the KYC procedure.
When you request IBAN or initiate a bank transfer, we also send your data to the providers of these services to meet AML requirements and follow KYC rules.
We may use your data to assist any law enforcement authority with their investigation or disclose data required by a court order as we may be obliged by law.
C) Our legitimate interests
We may use anonymized and aggregated data to analyse how customers use our services and evaluate the quality and convenience of our product, site operation and functionality.
Likewise, we may also use your data to notify you about changes to our policies or new features of ADV2.
We take a risk-based approach to assess both the profile of users and the transactions they make, as well as to detect and prevent fraudulent and other illegal activities. We collect, use, and store personal data for these purposes.
When you contact the support service, we keep a record of the conversation. We do this to improve the quality of our services and products, protect our interests in case of disputes, evaluate the quality of the work of the support staff, and train them.
D) Your consent
You may opt in to receive emails about our products and services, and allow us to measure the performance of marketing emails and analyse product use. You may withdraw your consent at any time.
To verify your account, we ask you to go through the liveness test to make sure that you are a living person and the documents submitted really belong to you. To achieve this, you will need to turn on the camera and turn your head so that the neural network can analyse the individual features of your face. Such analysis constitutes the processing of a special category of personal data, and can only be carried out based on your consent. The term of the consent is limited to the achievement of the purpose of the liveness check, so the data processing is terminated immediately once it is completed. The data collection and processing is carried out by a third party, acting as a data processor on our behalf. You can read more about this in the “Disclosure of personal data to third parties” section.
We use an automated risk assessment system to analyse the risk profile of the users and ongoing transactions to prevent illegal and fraudulent activities. Also, your personal data shall be processed by means of automated reading, verification of the authenticity and other automated processing of photos and scanned copies of documents and with further check against the data in multiple databases, including inter alia International politically exposed persons (PEPs) and Sanctions, Country Specific Sanctions Lists, Criminal Lists and Financial Lists.

How we keep your data secure
We are committed to make sure that your personal data is protected. We take a variety of security and organizational measures to ensure the safety of your data when you enter it on the site or otherwise provide it to us.
Furthermore, we use data encryption techniques and authentication procedures to prevent unauthorized access to our system and your data. Only authorized employees are granted physical access to the premises where data is processed and stored. The premises are being watched.
All supplied sensitive information is transmitted via Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology. Card payment information encryption is compliant with PCI DSS.
We authorize access to your personal data only for those employees who need it based on their job requirements (for example, customer support staff). All employees who access personal data are bound by a non-disclosure agreement. We implement continual training for our employees in regard to ensuring the security and confidentiality of personal data.
We continuously improve our security procedures to comply with the best industry standards and maintain a high level of personal data protection.
Your personal data shall be processed only on the servers physically located within the European Union. Personal information of the Canadians shall be stored in Canada.
We recommend you also adhere to some simple rules that will help ensure your safety. Never use the same password for multiple accounts on different sites and always use a strong password with mixed case letters, numbers, and symbols. Do not tell anyone your ADV2 wallet password. Please remember that our employees never ask for user passwords. If someone pretending to be an ADV2 employee asks you for your password or other login information, do not give it to them and notify us immediately by email to email@example.com.
How long we keep your data
Your personal data will be retained as long as necessary for the specific purpose for which it was collected.
