Protection of Privacy
NOWNOW recognises the importance of protecting the privacy of all information provided by users of our platform. This statement is meant to affirm our utmost respect for your rights to privacy.
Sharing of Information
Save as provided hereunder, NOWNOW does not share your personal information with unauthorized persons and adequate safeguards have been put in place to prevent unauthorized access and to ensure confidentiality of your personal information.
You acknowledge that by using the NOWNOW services, some of your personal information will be passed on to any person whom you receive NOWNOW money from, or send NOWNOW money to, and will be available to any third party involved in the operation of the service including without limitation, NOWNOW Stars and partner banks.
You accept that NOWNOW shall have the right to monitor your account usage and may disclose personal information to local enforcement or investigative agencies or any competent regulatory or governmental agencies to assist in the prevention, detection or prosecution of money laundering activities, fraud or criminal activities.
Uses of Information
NOWNOW collects personally identifiable information that we use to:
NOWNOW Employee Obligation
NOWNOW employees who handle personal information are under an obligation to treat it confidentially and may not disclose it to third parties. NOWNOW employees are also responsible for the internal security of the information. Employees who violate NOWNOW’s privacy policies are subject to a range of disciplinary actions.
Submitting Information Through NOWNOW
Any person submitting information to NOWNOW through our platform may be granted access rights to that information. NOWNOW has developed systems that enable access and correction of information submitted to it.
NOWNOW will give you 1 month notice of any changes, with the changes taking effect once the 1-month notice period has passed. The 1-month notice period will not apply where a change relates to the addition of a new service, extra functionality to the existing services or any other change which we believe in our reasonable opinion to neither reduce your rights nor increase your responsibilities. In such instances, the change will be made without prior notice to you and shall be effective immediately upon giving notice of it.
If you do not accept any change, you will be required to close your NOWNOW Wallet account, otherwise you will be deemed to have accepted it. Any closure of account still renders you liable to NOWNOW for any liability incurred by you prior to closure.
Should you send us correspondence including emails and letters, we will retain such information in the records of your account. We will also retain customer service correspondence and other correspondence from NOWNOW to you. The rationale for this retention is to keep records of our relationship, measure and improve customer service and to investigate potential fraud and violations of our User Agreement. We may, over time, delete these records if permitted by law.
Questionnaires & Surveys
From time to time, NOWNOW may offer optional questionnaires and surveys to our users for such purposes as collecting demographic information or assessing users’ interests and needs. The use of information collected will be explained in detail in the survey itself. If we collect person identifiable information from our users in these questionnaires and surveys, the users will be given notice of how the information will be used prior to their participation in the survey or questionnaire.
NOWNOW is committed to managing customer information with the highest standards of information security. We use computer safeguard such as firewalls and data encryption, enforce physical access to our buildings and files and only authorise access to personal information to only employees who require it to fulfil their job responsibilities.
The security of your NOWNOW Wallet account also rests on the protection of your PIN. You should not share your PIN with anyone and no employee of NOWNOW will ever ask you for either of these so any email or correspondence requesting for such information should be treated as unauthorised and suspicious and forwarded to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Should you share your PIN with any third parties, such third parties will have access to your account and your personal information and you may be responsible for any actions taken using this information. In the event you suspect a third party has gained access to your PIN, please log into your NOWNOW profile, change it and notify us straightaway.
