Who we are
This website is operated by Propiteer Capital plc. We are a public limited company incorporated in England with company registration number 12101322.
We collect, use and are responsible for certain personal information about you. When we do so we are regulated under the General Data Protection Regulation which applies across the European Union and the United Kingdom and we are responsible as ‘controller’ of that personal information for the purposes of those laws.
Throughout our website we may link to other websites owned and operated by certain trusted third parties, who may be involved in delivering our services to you (including, for example, business partners, sub-contractors in technical, payment and delivery services, advertising networks, analytics providers, search information providers, credit reference agencies). These other third party websites may also gather information about you in accordance with their own separate privacy policies. For privacy information relating to these other third party websites, please consult their privacy policies as appropriate.

We collect this personal information from you either directly, such as when you register with us, contact us or purchase investments via our website or indirectly, such as your browsing activity while on our website (see ‘Cookies’ below)
We also collect personal information about you from other sources as follows:
- if you use any of the other websites we operate or other services we provide

Our legal basis for processing your personal information
When we use your personal information we are required to have a legal basis for doing so. There are various different legal bases on which we may rely, depending on what personal information we process and why.
The legal bases we may rely on include:
- consent: where you have given us clear consent for us to process your personal information for a specific purpose
- contract: where our use of your personal information is necessary for a contract we have with you, or because you have asked us to take specific steps before entering into a contract
- legal obligation: where our use of your personal information is necessary for us to comply with the law (not including contractual obligations)
- legitimate interests: where our use of your personal information is necessary for our legitimate interests or the legitimate interests of a third party (unless there is a good reason to protect your personal information which overrides our legitimate interests).
Who we share your personal information with
We routinely share your name, address and contact details and documentation proving your identity with the following third parties:
- Propiteer Limited - to help administer your account with us
- Global Currency Exchange Network Limited – to hold and administer your funds pending investment and any returns from investment.
This data sharing enables us to administer your account or subscription with us and for us to be able to provide you with updates on the performance of your investments. Some of these third parties will require you to set up your own separate account with them. Once you have set up your account with these third parties, the processing of your personal data will be subject to the relevant third party’s own policies.
Some of those third party recipients may be based outside the United Kingdom and European Economic Area, or have servers located outside of these areas — for further information including on how we safeguard your personal data when this occurs, see ‘Transfer of your information out of the UK and EEA’.
We will share personal information with law enforcement or other authorities if required by applicable law.
We will not share your personal information with any other third party.
Whether information has to be provided by you, and if so why
We require you to provide your name and other personal details together with your contact details (such as address, telephone number and email address) to enable us to set up your account with us and to allow us to run credit checks and a process known as “know your client”, which is used to verify your identity. We will inform you at the point of collecting information from you, whether you are required to provide the information to us.
Transfer of your information out of the UK and EEA
To deliver services to you, it is sometimes necessary for us to share your personal information outside the UK and/or European Economic Area (EEA), eg:
- with our service providers located outside the UK/EEA
- if you are based outside the UK/EEA
- where there is an international dimension to the services we are providing to you
These transfers are subject to special rules under European and UK data protection law.
These non-UK/EEA countries may not have the same data protection laws as the United Kingdom and EEA. We will, however, ensure the transfer complies with data protection law and all personal information will be secure.
Cookies and other tracking technologies
We would like to send you information about our other products and services, current and pipelined projects and general news about us and our plans for the future, which may be of interest to you. Where we have your consent or it is in our legitimate interests to do so, we may do this by post, email, telephone or text message (SMS).
We will only ask whether you would like us and other businesses to send you marketing messages when you tick the relevant boxes when you register to use our website/become a member of any of our services.

Keeping your personal information secure
We have appropriate security measures in place to prevent personal information from being accidentally lost, or used or accessed in an unauthorised way. We limit access to your personal information to those who have a genuine business need to know it. Those processing your information will do so only in an authorised manner and are subject to a duty of confidentiality.
We also have procedures in place to deal with any suspected data security breach. We will notify you and any applicable regulator of a suspected data security breach where we are legally required to do so.
How to complain
We hope that we can resolve any query or concern you raise about our use of your information.
The General Data Protection Regulation also gives you the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority, in particular in a European Economic Area state or in the United Kingdom if you work, normally live or if any alleged infringement of data protection laws occurred in the relevant state. The supervisory authority in the UK is the Information Commissioner who may be contacted at https://ico.org.uk/concerns/.
