International data transfer

Modern Treasury operates in the United States and provides the Service to customers located in the United States. If you are accessing the Service from outside the United States, your Personal Information may be transferred to, stored, or processed in the United States and maintained on computers or servers located outside of your state, province, country, or other jurisdiction where the privacy laws may not be as protective as those in your jurisdiction. Some information may also be stored locally on devices you use to interact with the Service. By accessing the Service, you understand and consent to the transfer of your information to the United States and to those third parties with whom we share it as described in this Privacy Policy. Modern Treasury does not represent or warrant that the Service, or any part thereof, is appropriate or available for use in any particular geographic location. If you choose to access or use the Service, you do so at your own risk, and you are responsible for complying with all local laws, rules, and regulations applicable in your jurisdiction. If you do not want your information transferred to or processed or maintained outside of the country or jurisdiction where you are located, you should not use the Service.

With respect to European Economic Area (“EEA”) and the United Kingdom (“UK”), if our customers use the Service such that they are providing or collecting information from EEA or UK residents, we are acting as a data processor and storing Personal Information on behalf of those customers. If you are located in the EEA or UK and use our Service, your Personal Information is processed by us and transferred to our servers and the servers of our service providers located in the United States. In order to ensure that your information is protected when transferred out of the EEA or UK, we rely on data processing agreements, EU Standard Contractual Clauses, as well as agreements with our various third-party service providers that may process your information on our behalf. When we process Personal Information for the purposes and to pursue the legitimate business interests set forth in this Privacy Policy, we do so where we believe the nature of the processing, the information being processed, and the technical and organizational measures employed to protect that information can help mitigate the risks to the data subject. However, though we undertake to preserve the confidentiality of all information provided to us, we cannot be responsible for ensuring the security, accuracy, or privacy of your data once it leaves our environments.

If you are located in the EEA or UK, you have certain rights under applicable law with respect to your Personal Information, including the right to request access to, correct, amend, delete, port to another service provider, or object to certain uses of your Personal Information. Upon request, we will provide you with information about whether or not we hold any of your Personal Information. To the extent required by law, we provide you with (i) reasonable access to the Personal Information you provide to us, (ii) the ability to review, correct and delete such Personal Information, (iii) the right to data portability, and (iv) the ability to restrict or object to our processing of Personal Information we have collected about you. If you believe that any of the Personal Information that you have submitted through the Service is no longer accurate, or you wish to make any updates or changes, or rights requests, you may do so by emailing us at EMAIL@moderntreasury.com. We will use reasonable efforts to comply with your request as soon as reasonably practicable. However, we reserve the right to use any information previously obtained to verify your identity or take other actions that we believe are appropriate and lawful. We may decline to process requests that are unreasonably repetitive, require disproportionate technical effort, jeopardize the privacy of others, are impractical, or for which access is not otherwise required by local law. We may also need to retain certain information for record keeping purposes, and there may also be residual information that will remain within our databases and other records, which will not be removed from such locations.

If you have a complaint about our use of your Personal Information or response to your requests regarding your Personal Information, you may submit a complaint to the data protection regulator in your jurisdiction. We would, however, appreciate the opportunity to address your concerns in advance, and would ask that you direct the inquiry first to us at EMAIL@moderntreasury.com.

Children  

The Service is not intended for use by children under 16 years of age. If we learn that we have collected Personal Information through the Service from a child under 16 without the consent of the child’s parent or guardian as required by law, we will delete it. 

Changes to this Privacy Policy 

We reserve the right to modify this Privacy Policy at any time. If we make changes to this Privacy Policy, we will notify you by updating the date of this Privacy Policy and posting it on the Service. If required by law we will also provide notification of changes in another way that we believe is reasonably likely to reach you, such as via email or another manner through the Service.  Any modifications to this Privacy Policy will be effective upon our posting the modified version (or as otherwise indicated at the time of posting). In all cases, your use of the Service after the effective date of any modified Privacy Policy indicates your acceptance of the modified Privacy Policy.
