    How We Use Cookies

    Cookies are small text files placed on your device to store data that can be re-called by a web server for the domain that placed the original cookie file on your device, e.g. "seedfunding.co.uk".

    We use cookies and similar technologies for storing and honouring your preferences and settings, enabling you to sign-in more easily, process orders and payments, provide interest based advertising, combating fraud, analysing how our products and services perform and fulfilling other legitimate purposes. We also may use "web beacons" to help deliver cookies and gather usage and performance data to better improve our offerings.

    Seedfunding.co.uk may also include web beacons, cookies and/or other similar technologies from third-party service providers such as Google or Microsoft. You have a variety of tools to control the data which is used by cookies, web beacons and other similar technologies. For example, you can use controls in your internet browser to limit how the websites you visit are able to use cookies. However, for best experience, we advise you do not block any cookies, web beacons and/or other similar technologies from us.

    Seedfunding.co.uk Specific Policies

    All data you submit to us, whether via one of our contact forms, newsletters, community, application forms or any other direct data submission methods will be retained by Veriaty Ltd., for the duration as necessary unless otherwise stated or requested to be removed by the original data holder.

    For example, Veriaty Ltd., can retain your data for a number of years if you apply for financing for your business and can use this data to better improve its products or services or offer relevant materials, services or products. You may opt-out of this at anytime by contacting us via one of the specified methods below and explaining in detail your concerns and the services/products you have used. This will help us more easily identify you and remove your data from our services or products. However by doing so, you will lose any and all access to the specified product or service, such as the community.

    Data which is submitted indirectly to us, for example, through one of our tracking partner beacons such as Google, is automatically expired and removed after a certain amount of time as per the partners' services' policies. For manual removal of such data, you will need to contact the partner at question directly and have this data removed by them. Unfortunately, Veriaty Ltd., is unable to assist you or provide support or further information on matters relating to third party data processing.

    If you apply for financing or to join our investor panel, and your application is not taken to the next stage; we may still send you suitable and relevant information and may invite you to join our peer-to-peer financing platform upon its launch. You may opt out of these mail lists at any time after receipt of the first one. You will have the option to opt out at the bottom of the e-mail, which upon your instruction, will automatically remove you from any mailing lists. However, since Veriaty Ltd., processes large amounts of data, this sometimes can cause conflicts with our other services, for example if you are subscribed to another product or service mailing list or have a user account on an app, service or product run by Veriaty Ltd., in which case you will need to request removal from the individual product or service. If you experience any issues, we advise you to contact each customer support department individually and ask them for further information.

    Please be advised that community data and the main platform and/or application form data is processed differently. For example if you opt out of mail communication from your funding application, you may still receive communications from the community service, if you have created an account, or signed up to any newsletters, and you will need to opt out of that individually.
