  • Legitimate bases for data processing

(This clause applies to EEA and UK end-users only)

For individuals located in the European Economic Area (“EEA”) or the United Kingdom, our lawful basis for processing your End User Information will depend on the information in question and the context in which we collect or process it. 

Generally, however, we will normally only collect and process End User Information when: (a) we need to fulfill our responsibilities and obligations under any contract or agreement with you (for example, to comply with our End User Services Agreement); (b) to comply with our legal obligations under applicable law; (c) the processing is necessary for our legitimate interests and not overriding your data protection interests or fundamental rights and freedoms (for example, to safeguard our services, to communicate with you or to provide or update our services); and (d) you have consented to do so.

To the extent that we rely on consent to collect and process End User Information, you have the right to withdraw your consent at any time in accordance with the instructions provided in this Policy.

E. How and with whom we share your information

We share your information with others for a variety of business purposes under the circumstances described in this section. For example, with others you interact with when you use our services; within our family of companies; with service providers that help us provide our services such as our Connection Processors and Payment Processors (as outlined in the End User Service Agreement); or if we need to share your information to comply with the law. 

  • With the Business of the application you are using and as instructed by that Business (as with another third party if you so indicate);
  • For the performance of any contract with you (if applicable) or our Businesses;
  • With our data processors and other service providers, partners or contractors in connection with services they provide to us or the Businesses;

  • Between DRUO and our present and future parents, subsidiaries and other companies under common control or common ownership;
  • To the extent we reasonably believe it is appropriate to protect the rights, privacy, safety or property of you, the Businesses, our partners, DRUO and others; 
  • If we believe that disclosure is reasonably necessary (i) to comply with any applicable law, regulation, legal process or governmental request (e.g., from creditors, tax authorities, law enforcement agencies, in response to a levy, garnishment or attachment notice, etc.); (ii) to establish, exercise or defend our legal rights; (iii) to enforce or comply with our General Terms or other applicable agreements or policies; (iv) to protect our rights or property or those of our customers, or the security or integrity of our Services; (v) for an investigation of actual or suspected illegal activity; or (vi) to protect us, users of our Services or the public from harm, fraud or potentially prohibited or illegal activity; or
  • For any other purpose notified with your consent.
  • Aggregated and anonymized information

We may also collect, use and share (within our group of companies or affiliates, or with service providers or other third parties) your data in an aggregated and anonymized form that does not specifically identify you or any individual user of our Services for any purpose permitted under applicable law.

  • No sale of personal data

We do not sell or rent the personal information we collect.

  • Cookies and similar technologies

Digital cookies and similar technologies help us improve your use of our services by doing things like recognizing when you are logged in, analyzing how you use our services so we can make them more useful to you, providing you with a more personalized experience, and making our ads work better.

When you interact with our online services or open emails we send you, we obtain certain information using automated technologies, such as cookies, web server logs, web beacons and other technologies. A “cookie” is a text file that websites send to a visitor’s computer or other Internet-connected device to uniquely identify the visitor’s browser or to store information or settings in the browser. A web beacon, also known as an Internet tag, pixel tag or clear GIF, is a small graphic image that may be used on our websites or in e-mails.

We use these automated technologies to collect information from your device, Internet activity information and inferences as described above. These technologies help us, among other things, to: (i) remember your information so you do not have to re-enter it; (ii) track and understand how you use and interact with our online services and emails; (iii) tailor our online services to your preferences; (iv) measure how useful and effective our services and communications are for you; and (v) otherwise manage and improve our products and services.

We set up some of these automated technologies ourselves, but others are set up by third parties who provide services on our behalf. For example, we may use web analytics services from other companies, which use automated technologies to help us evaluate how our users use our Services and/or websites. 

Your browser can alert you when cookies are placed on your device and how you can stop or disable them through your browser settings. Please note, however, that without cookies all features of our online services may not function properly. If you use a mobile device, you can manage how your device and browser share certain device data by changing the privacy and security settings on your mobile device. You can learn more about cookies and how to manage your preferences by visiting 

  • Third-party analysis services

We use other companies as service providers to help us analyze our site, track metrics and generate advertisements for you. These service providers generally promise us under contract to maintain data privacy, but they have their own privacy policies that you should be aware of.

We may use third-party analytics service providers to help us with our online services, such as Google Analytics or Facebook. The analytics providers that administer these services use technologies such as cookies, web beacons and web server logs to help us analyze how you use our online services. We may disclose your site usage information (including IP address) to these analytics providers and other service providers who use the information to help us discover how you and others use our online services.

F. Data management

  • Storage and custody

We operate in many countries and we (or our service providers) may move your data and process it outside the country where you live.

We may use third-party service providers to process and store your information in the United States, Canada, Japan, the European Union and other countries, seeking third parties with high security standards and compliance with both applicable regulations and applicable best practices.

Depending on the Services used by you and the related Business (if applicable), DRUO may not host your data or any part of your data. In such a case, DRUO may not store or hold information about you, so certain provisions of this agreement may not apply to you, in particular those relating to deletion and request for information.

  • Information security

We take reasonable measures, including administrative, technical and physical safeguards, to protect your information from loss, theft and misuse, unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration and destruction. However, the Internet is not a 100% secure environment and we cannot guarantee the absolute security of the transmission or storage of your information. We store information about you both in our own facilities and with the help of third party service providers, which will be selected with applicable due diligence.

DRUO understands that in our activity collects and treats a high volume of personal data of special category, mainly those related to financial information, passwords, movements, balances, among others, therefore, will implement a special protection for those data collected and treated, understood as sensitive information.

  • Conservation policy

We retain End User Information only for the period of time necessary to fulfill the purposes for which it was collected and used, as described in this Policy, unless a longer retention period is required or permitted by applicable law. As permitted by applicable law, even after you stop using an application or close your account with one or more Businesses, we may still retain your information (for example, if you still have an account with another Business). However, your information will only be treated as required by law or in accordance with this Policy and your authorization.

Please refer to the “Your Data Protection Rights” section to validate the choices that may be available to you, including the right to request deletion of End User Information. You may also contact us regarding our data retention practices using the contact information at the end of this document.

  • International data transfers

We operate internationally, and therefore, we will transfer the information we collect about you across international borders, including from the EEA or the United Kingdom to the United States, for processing and storage. To the extent that information we collect about you is transferred from the EEA to territories/countries in respect of which the EU Commission has not taken a decision that the legal framework in that territory/country provides adequate protection for the rights and freedoms of natural persons with regard to their personal data, we may transfer such data in accordance with the applicable data protection regulations based on a prior assessment of the level of data protection afforded in the context of the transfer, including the use of the standard contractual clauses approved by the EU Commission, in combination, if necessary, with additional safeguards. You can request a copy of these standard contractual clauses by contacting us using the information at the end of this document.

  • Transmission of your data

To share information with third parties or business partners, the provisions of Section B.1 “Authorization for the processing of your data” will be applied.

DRUO will take the necessary measures to ensure that third parties to whom information is transmitted undertake to comply with this Policy and only use the data provided to them for the uses authorized in this Policy. 

  • Authorized personnel for data protection management


DRUO to provide greater security to personal information, has provided that an area authorized to manage the issues of Personal Data Protection, the Data Protection area will assume the duties and responsibilities associated with the management of aspects of Personal Data Protection. This area will be in charge of attending to the exercise of their rights, as well as ensuring the effective implementation of the policies and procedures adopted by DRUO to comply with the rules on protection of personal data, as well as the implementation in terms of information security.
