Arro is committed to protecting your personal information
Arro is committed to keeping your personal information private and secure. By ‘your information’ we mean any information about you that you or third parties provide to us. This Policy (together with our Cookies Policy, and any other document referred to in it) explains how we safeguard the privacy of your information and how we use your information. It also explains how you can access this information should you ever wish to.
Please note, if you do not wish us to collect and use your personal information in the ways explained below, it will mean that we will be unable to provide you with our services. This also includes continuing to provide you with our services if you are an existing account holder with Arro.
Please read the following carefully to understand our views and practices regarding your personal information and how we will treat it.
Our Arro Privacy Promise
Arro is committed to safeguarding the privacy of your information. Under the new General Information Protection Regulation (GDPR) (effective from 25.05.2018), there are 6 core principles for the handling of personal information. We have adopted these core principles within our Privacy Promise. We promise that your personal information is:
- processed lawfully, fairly and in a transparent way in relation to you as an individual;
- only ever collected and processed for specified, clear and legitimate purposes;
- adequate, relevant and limited to what is necessary in relation to the reasons for which it is used;
- accurate and kept up to date, and we’ll take every reasonable step to ensure that any inaccurate information is deleted or corrected without delay;
- kept in a form which enables us to identify you for no longer than is necessary; and
- adequate security measures are taken when processing your personal information, including protection against unauthorised or unlawful use and against accidental loss, destruction or damage.
In addition, we also promise that:
- we will only ever use your information if we have your full consent beforehand;
- we will not sell your information;
- we will give you ways to manage and review your marketing preferences at any time.

Why do we need to collect and use your personal information and how might we use it?
The main reason why we collect and process your information is to enable us to provide you with our Arro services. The information that we collect about you is essential for us to be able to carry out the services that you want from us. Also, if we didn’t collect your personal information, we would be unable to complete our legal and regulatory obligations.
We may use the information you provide to send you further information about our products and services.
With your agreement, we may also disclose your information to other third parties, whose products and services may be of interest to you.
If special category information is needed, we will obtain your clear consent in order to collect and process this information.
Who might we share your information with?
If you agree, we may email you about other products and/or services we offer that we think may be of interest to you. We won’t share your information for marketing purposes with other companies unless we firstly have you consent.
Where third-parties are involved in processing your information we’ll have a contract in place with them to ensure that the nature and purpose of the processing is clear, that they are subject to a duty of confidence in processing your information and that they will only act in accordance with our written instructions.
Where it is necessary for your personal information to be forwarded to a third party, we will use appropriate security measures to protect your personal information in transit. We will enhance the security of the information during transfer via password protection and/or encryption of information.
To fulfil our obligations in respect of prevention of money laundering and other financial crime we may send your details to third party agencies for identity verification purposes.
Protecting your information
We take information and system security seriously and strive to comply with our obligations at all times. Any personal information which is collected, recorded or used in any way, whether online or any other media, will have appropriate safeguards applied in line with our information protection obligations.
When you submit a form, your information is secured by encryption using Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology. This is industry standard encryption technology which manages the security of messages transmitted across the internet. When we receive your information, we store it on secure servers.
Storing your personal information within and outside the EEA
Some of the information we collect from you may be transferred to an external third-party hosting company (i.e. companies who we have contracted with to process or store information on our behalf) within the European Economic Area (EEA). Your personal information may also be transferred to and stored at a destination outside the EEA. Where your information is being processed outside of the EEA, we take additional steps to ensure that your information is protected to an equivalent level as would be applied by UK / EEA information privacy laws.
How long do we keep hold of your personal information?
In principle, your personal information should not be held for longer than is required under the terms of our contract for services with you. However, we are subject to regulatory requirements to retain information for specified minimum periods. We will not retain your personal information for longer than is necessary.
You have the right to request your personal information to be deleted. We will comply with this request, subject to the restrictions of our regulatory obligations and legitimate interests.
