Privacy Policy

Latest update: June 2022

This privacy policy (the “Policy”) explains how the eToro group (collectively eToro, “we” or “us” and each member of the eToro group for whose services you registered, the “eToro Entity”) collects, uses and discloses personal information through its websites, mobile applications, and other online products and services that link to this Policy, including any of the products and services detailed in the following paragraph (collectively, the “Services”) or when you otherwise interact with us.

The Services include providing: (i) the eToro social trading platform for investing in stocks & EFTs, cryptocurrencies and for CFDs trading which users can sign up for an account with ; (ii) the eToro Money App which facilitates the eToro Money services (e-money account servicing payments and debit card) and eToro Money Crypto Wallet services; (iii) eToroX Digital Assets Exchange Services; (iv) any other site, web platform, mobile application or other service facilitated by any eToro Entity (any account described in (i)-(iv) being an “eToro Account” for the purpose of this Policy).

We encourage you to read the Policy carefully as it forms part of the relevant eToro Entity’s terms and conditions, terms of business, agreement with you and/or terms of use, as the case may be.

If you accept or agree to this Policy on behalf of a company or other legal entity, you represent and warrant that you have the authority to bind that company or other legal entity to the Privacy Policy and, in such event, “you” and “your” will refer and apply to that company or other legal entity.

Application of this Policy

For the purposes of applicable state and/or international data protection laws, the respective eToro Entity with whom you have registered is the “controller” of personal information collected through www.etoro.com (http://www.etoro.com), other eToro group entities’ websites, widgets, mobile applications (including the eToro Money App) and other platforms (together the “Site”), and is the company to contact if you have questions about the use of your personal information (see the “Contact Us” section below). The Policy also applies to personal data about each authorized representative of a client and about other persons or entities where this personal data is collected in the course of providing the Services (such as directors of corporate clients).

Collection of Information

Information You Provide to Us

We collect information you provide directly to us. For example, we collect information when you create an eToro Account, participate in any interactive features of the Services, fill out a form, participate in a contest or promotion, make a purchase, communicate with us via third party social media sites, request customer support, or otherwise communicate with us

When You Sign Up or Register for an eToro Account or Services

If you sign up for an eToro Account or other Services, we will collect basic information about you including your name, email address and telephone number. You may provide this information to us directly, or by signing in to your account/service with a third party, including without limitation, Facebook or Google (see “Information We Collect from Other Sources” below). We will use the information that we collect about you to:

  • Create and maintain your eToro Account;
  • Allow you to log in to eToro;
  • Contact you about your eToro Account and/or our Services (this may include marketing emails).

When You Provide Information to Build Your Profile

Once you have created an eToro Account, we will ask you to provide additional information to allow you to make use of certain functions. We will ask you to provide a copy of an identification document, such as a passport, residency permit, visa or national identity card, a utility bill and such other documents as may be required by us in order to comply with our regulatory obligations and to verify your identity. Further details about the identification process can be found in the relevant eToro Entity’s terms and conditions, terms of business and/or terms of use or client/customer agreement, as the case may.

Please note that if you choose to provide additional information about yourself to complete your “Profile”, then the information we ask for may include your gender, date of birth, place of birth, addresses, nationality, national insurance number, social security number (or other governmentissued identification number), citizenship and residency status, Tax ID, and information about your experience trading, education, source of income, investment aims and appetite, occupation, employer and employment position, annual income, investment portfolio, total cash and liquid assets and other details or questions as may be required in the Profile creation and the process may be amended by us from time to time.

It is optional for you to do so but for legal and regulatory reasons you will be unable to proceed to use certain features unless you provide further information.

We will use the information you provide in your Profile to:

  • verify your identity and carry out checks that we are required to conduct by applicable laws and regulations, including without limitation, “know your customer” (KYC), antimoney laundering, fraud, sanctions and politically exposed person (PEP) checks;
  • contact you on matters related to your eToro Account, including to request any additional information or documentation;
  • provide you with notices related to your eToro Account, general updates, market updates and other marketing materials, including about the Services offered by members of the eToro Group;
  • tailor the products and services offered through the Site to you, including without limitation, to perform any suitability or appropriateness assessments for using our services and/or products, such as our high-leveraged trading services and Social Trading Features;
  • assess your credit risk;
  • assess your risk score according to parameters determined by eToro;
  • assess whether you qualify as a professional client, wholesale client or other specific category of client;
  • maintain administrative records relating to our business;
  • set up security measures to secure your account, including without limitation, to carry out two-factor authentication (“2FA”); and
  • provide the Services.

You can update your Profile at any time by visiting the “Account” page in the Settings menu when logged into your eToro Account. We recommend that you update your Profile regularly, to ensure that the eToro functions offered to you are appropriate for your current circumstances. You further agree to update such information upon eToro’s request, if eToro considers the information -4- provided as untrue, incorrect, incomplete and/or inconsistent with other information provided by you at any time. You acknowledge that we may rely upon such information and that you are responsible for any damages or losses which may result from any inaccuracies, including without limitation, the inappropriateness of our Services to your Profile. You do not have to complete your Profile and therefore do not have to provide the information; however, if you choose not to, we will be unable to offer eToro’s full functionality to you.

When You Contact Us

If you contact us by telephone, email, post or use another function offered by eToro, such as the chat feature, we will collect any information about the communication and any additional information that you choose to give us. We will use this information to review, investigate and respond to any comment or question that you may raise. Please note that we record and retain all telephone calls and other communication with us and may use it in our dealings with you, including any dispute resolution or legal proceedings.

When an eToro User Invites You to Use eToro

Users of eToro can invite their contacts to sign up for an account with us. We only collect the email addresses of individuals that users choose to invite to join eToro and eToro only uses the email addresses for sending an invitation to the individual at the request of the existing eToro user.
