We may use some instances of your data in order to customise our Services and the information we provide to you, and to address your needs – such as your country of address and transaction history. When we do this, we take all necessary measures to ensure that your privacy and security are protected – and we only use pseudonymised data where ever possible.

19. As part of being a highly technical and innovative company, we may use automated decision making in order to improve your experience, or to help fight financial crime.
