Generally, we collect two types of information from our clients and/or users of our website, including:
Personal information, which includes but is not limited to the client’s name, residential address, identification and/or passport number, date of birth, email address, employment details, information relating to financial circumstances, investment experience (collectively “Personal Information”); and Traffic pattern information relating to the users on our website.
Personal Information is collected at the time when the client applies for a Crest View International trading account (this would include a demo account as well) and through any other communications that the client may have with our representative(s) during the course of their relationship with us. Crest View International will limit the collection of Personal Information to what is necessary in order for us to provide you with the required products and services.
Crest View International may also collect other information from time to time, such as through client surveys used for research and feedback purposes in our efforts to continuously improve on the quality of our services and the products we offer. Personal Information collected online may be consolidated with other information provided to Crest View International by the client either via physical copies or other sources. Information may also be collected indirectly from monitoring or other means such as recording of telephone calls and monitoring of emails. In these circumstances, the information is not accessed on a continuous or routine basis but may be used for compliance or security purposes.
PURPOSE FOR COLLECTION, PROCESSING AND DISCLOSURE OF PERSONAL DATA
Generally, Personal Data and aggregated information collected are used for the following purposes:
To provide our products and/or services to our clients, which shall include:
the execution or administration of any transaction(s) requested and/or authorised by our clients.
Crest View International does NOT share, process or disclose Personal Information to business partners or third party service providers for marketing purposes.
TRANSFER OF PERSONAL INFORMATION OVERSEAS
To the extent that Crest View International may need to transfer Personal Information outside of Taiwan (such as for data storage, data management and/or consolidation purposes), whether to our business partners or third party service providers or simply to data storage facilities, we shall do so in accordance with the Personal Data (Privacy) Ordinance (Cap 486) (“PDPO”) and ensure that the standard of protection applied to Personal Information so transferred is comparable to the protection required under the PDPO.
Generally, when Crest View International requests for Personal Information in the course of providing you a service and/or product and where you provide us with such Personal Information, there is implied consent that you agree to provide us with your Personal Information in order for us to provide you with the requested service and/or product.
Personal Information will be held for as long as it is necessary to fulfil the purpose for which it was collected, or as required or permitted by applicable law. Crest View International shall cease to retain Personal Information or remove the means by which Personal Information can be associated with particular clients, as soon as it is reasonable to assume that the purpose for which that Personal Information was collected is no longer valid and retention is no longer necessary for legal or business purposes.
