To meet our legal obligations Some laws demand that we collect and store certain data about you—laws against money laundering, for instance. For legitimate interests We sometimes collect and use your data, or share it with other organisations. We only do this when there’s a legitimate reason that is reasonable when balanced against your right to privacy—for instance, you’ve asked to use a new card and we have to send your data to the partner that provides the service. You’ve given us your consent You agree to us collecting your data when you use the TransferGo website or app, or when you tick a box that says you’re happy for us to use your personal data in a certain way.
