Additional Information for EEA and UK Residents

Lawful processing

If you are an individual in the UK or European Economic Area (EEA), we collect and process information about you only where we have legal bases for doing so under the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) in the EEA and the Data Protection Act, 2018 in the UK. The legal bases depend on the OFX services you use and how you use them. This means we collect and use your information only where:

  • We need it to provide you our services, including to operate our services, provide customer support and personalised features and to protect the safety and security of our services;
  • It satisfies a legitimate interest (which is not overridden by your data protection interests), such as to market and promote our services and to protect our legal rights and interests;
  • You give us consent to do so for a specific purpose; or
  • We need to process your data to comply with a legal obligation.

If you have consented to our use of information about you for a specific purpose, you have the right to change your mind at any time, but this will not affect any processing that has already taken place. Where we are using your information because we or a third party have a legitimate interest to do so, you have the right to object to that use though, in some cases, this may mean no longer using our services.

Your rights

Under data protection law, you have rights including:

Your right of access – You have the right to ask us for copies of your personal information.

Your right to rectification – You have the right to ask us to rectify personal information you think is inaccurate or is incomplete.

Transfers to third countries

The Personal Information that we collect from you may be transferred to and stored outside of your country of residence, including outside of the UK (for UK residents) and outside of the EEA (for EEA residents). To facilitate our global operations, we transfer information to and allow access by staff in countries in which OFX owned companies have operations for the provision of our services. Such staff are likely to be involved in, among other things, processing your transaction or payment details and providing support services. We also share information with third parties as described in this Policy. For example, this may involve information being transferred to a banking partner in a country where you have instructed us to send a payment.

Where we share information with an organisation outside of the UK or the EEA, we will take all reasonable steps to ensure that they apply equivalent levels of protection as we are required to provide, including the use of standard contractual data protection clauses which have been approved by the European Commission. If this is not possible, for example, we are required by law to disclose your information, we will make sure that sharing the information is lawful.

Additional Information for Residents of New Zealand

If we transfer your Personal Information outside New Zealand, we will ensure the intended recipient is subject to privacy laws that provide comparable safeguards to the Privacy Act 1993, is covered by a binding scheme or is subject to the privacy laws of a country prescribed by the New Zealand Government or has agreed to adequately protect the information. Alternatively, we will obtain your explicit consent for the transfer.
