Use of our online Services
Collection of personal data
When you use our Services we will have access to your personal data that you submit to us and personal data held by Account Servicing Payment Service Providers (i.e. any payment service provider, such as a bank or a credit card issuer that maintains an online payment account on your behalf) (“ASPSPs”) (“Personal Data”) for the duration of the transmission. Such Personal Data may include your date of birth, gender, account information, account balance, transactions, information on loans, insurance data and investments data. The manner in which we access, use, process and store your personal data for the provision of the Services is set out below.
Emma transmits the contacts lists on your phone so you can easily make payments to your contacts using the Emma app. You can, of course, choose not to sync your contacts list with Emma. This means that you won't be able to identify which of your mobile phone contacts are Emma customers.
Emma stores the image that you decide to upload when attaching a receipt to a transaction, verifying your identity with us or adding a profile picture to your profile. You can, of course, choose not to upload any of this data.
Use of your personal data
In order to access and use the main functionality of our Services, we will direct you to use one of our trusted service providers or an ASPSP that implements Open Banking in order to transmit and access information (including personal data) relating to payment accounts (“Account Information”) that you hold with ASPSPs to us.
The information we collect and process will be used to run the Services.
We’ll be able to access your Account Information (including any Personal data), if you give us explicit consent.
How do I withdraw my consent?

Deletion of Personal Data

Just to let you know, as a regulated financial services provider, we must keep certain customer personal data even when you ask us to delete it. If you've closed your Emma account, we may not be able to delete your entire file because these regulatory responsibilities take priority.
