Our members are asked to provide their authentic first and last names, and choose usernames reflective of their actual names.

This information is shared with our administration team and our network of approved and vetted members. We do not provide access to member information to third-parties such as advertisers and researchers without member consent. Third-parties with access to member information are limited to payment processors and providers of technical services and support related specifically to the functionality of the platform and website.

Your contact information
How we protect your data
Personal data shall be subject to additional safeguards to ensure this data is processed securely. For example, we work hard to ensure data is encrypted when in transit and storage, and access to this data will be strictly limited to a minimum number of individuals and subject to confidentiality commitments.
We will take all steps reasonably necessary to ensure that your data is treated securely and in accordance with this Policy. Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure. Although we will do our best to protect your personal data, we cannot guarantee the security of your data transmitted to any of our websites; any transmission is at your own risk. Once we have received your information, we will use strict procedures and security features to try to prevent unauthorised access. When possible, encryption is used, both in transit and storage. Access controls within the company limit who may access information.
Notification of personal data breach
In the case of a personal data breach, RAZ Finance will, without undue delay and, where feasible, not later than 72 hours after having become aware of it, notify the personal data breach to the supervisory authority competent in accordance with Article 55 of the GDPR, unless the personal data breach is unlikely to result in a risk to the rights and freedoms of natural persons. Where the notification to the supervisory authority is not made within 72 hours, it shall be accompanied by reasons for the delay.
When the personal data breach is likely to result in a high risk to the rights and freedoms of natural persons, RAZ Finance shall communicate the personal data breach to you and other affected members without undue delay. Such information will be provided to you in clear and plain language and will describe the nature of the personal data breach and contain at least the information and measures referred to in points (b), (c) and (d) of Article 33(3) of the GDPR.
Direct communication of a data breach to you or other members shall not be required if any of the following conditions are met:
- RAZ Finance has implemented appropriate technical and organizational protection measures, and those measures were applied to the personal data affected by the personal data breach, in particular those that render the personal data unintelligible to any person who is not authorised to access it, such as encryption;
- RAZ Finance has taken subsequent measures which ensure that the high risk your rights and freedoms, or those of any other members, are longer likely to materialize;
- it would involve disproportionate effort. In such a case, there shall instead be a public communication or similar measure whereby you and other members are informed in an equally effective manner.
Who do we share personal data with?
We maintain direct control over as many processes as we can. As necessary in connection with the above purposes, your personal data may be transferred to the Board of Directors or our authorized third-party service providers and partners. We conscientiously select and review authorized third parties when possible and review their privacy and security policies. These authorized third parties may be engaged in, among other things, the processing of payments and technology support. Limited members of RAZ Finance staff or the staff working for these third parties may also access and otherwise process your personal data in connection with their job responsibilities or contractual obligations.
Some of these personnel and authorized third parties (for example payment processors) may transfer data outside Israel, Serbia or the European Union (“EU”). We take appropriate steps to ensure that data remains within jurisdictions with adequate protections for personal data and ensure that recipients of personal data from us are bound to duties of confidentiality, where relevant or appropriate. Where this is not possible, we rely on data minimization, the selection of trusted companies with privacy policies and auditable processes which we have reviewed and seek to ensure that there are adequate safeguards in place for protecting transferred data, for example Standard Contractual Clauses. For more information on the safeguards for transfer in a particular operation please contact us. We may also be required to disclose or otherwise process your personal data in the context of a regulatory audit to which we may be subject from time to time.

Information we receive by post is collected by two staff members, reviewed, and sent onwards when necessary to other staff members. These items are destroyed as soon as possible. We use our best efforts to prevent disclosure of the names of senders to third parties, consistent with our legal obligations and we endeavour to keep files secure. If the content of messages is shared with third parties, we de-identify the messages as much as possible.
