Privacy Policy (v3.2)

This Privacy Policy describes how D RISK IT ("D RISK IT", "we", "us") collects and uses the information that you provide. It also describes the choices available to you regarding our use of your personal information and how you can access and update this information. D RISK IT operates in accordance with the latest data protection principles enshrined in Article 5 of the General Data Protection Regulation (EU) 2016/679 (“GDPR”) including the principles of purpose-limitation, storage-limitation, data accuracy, data security and integrity, and data minimisation.

This Privacy Policy relates to your use of any of the D RISK IT products, which shall include the D RISK IT mobile application, the D RISK IT website, D RISK IT Partner Microsites, D RISK IT Reports and any other existing or future D RISK IT products to which you are granted access (the "Products"). The data sets we acquire fall into three broad kinds:

(i) investor information (relating to our angel investors, venture capitalists, funders, accelerators, crowdfunders, advisors, brokers and intermediaries);

(ii) information pertaining to clients and business partners which can range from strategic consultancies, family companies, accountancy firms, corporate finance and M&A boutique firms and occasionally researchers; and,

(iii) startup/company information (relating to fundamental company credentials, valuation, investment-readiness, business performance metrics and core statistical and personnel information).

In addition to obtaining access to the Products via a commercial App store, or by D RISK IT directly, you may also be granted access to the Products by a third party partner, which may include an accelerator, angel network, potential investor or investment group, broker, consultant or business service organisation.


What Information Do We Collect? Personal Information: We may collect individually identifiable information such as your name, company name, address, telephone number, email address, IP address, user IDs and passwords and contact preferences.

Feedback: When you allow us or one of our third-party partners to receive your feedback with regard to the Products, we may gather Personal Information.

Non-Personal Information: This may include submitted scores, financial metrics, data/information received via API connections to your own third-party software package, gradings, usernames, directory names, server names, share names, file names, configurations, logs related to the Products, browsing events and technical information transmitted by your devices. Including certain software and hardware information.

Please note that when the Products are deployed by our Partners, they analyse structured and unstructured data that is stored on our Partners’ sites. Our Partners determine their own policies regarding the storage, access, deletion, sharing and retention of this data.

Information we receive from other sources: We may receive information about you from third parties (including, for example, business partners, corporate finance professionals, funding or lending institutions, sub-contractors in IT/ technical support, payment and delivery services).

How We Use The Information We Collect? Your Personal Information is used for legitimate business purposed only, such as:
• To set up your account and to provide our Products to you.
• To identify and authenticate your access to the Products.
• To drive future product development in line with customer platform and technology use;
• when you are using the D RISK IT mobile app, send you push notifications. If you do not wish to receive these notifications, you can contact us at info@drisk.it to request no further notifications;
• send improve our Products and marketing efforts; and/or
• respond to your questions and concerns.
• out a newsletter or occasional product alerts or marketing communications;
• To support and troubleshoot our Products and
• To investigate violations and enforce our policies, and as requires by law, regulation or other governmental authority, or to comply with a subpoena or similar legal process or responds to a governmental request.

Our lawful basis for using your personal information: In addition, D RISK IT does not collect or process personal data unless it is satisfied that there is a legitimate interest established under the terms of Article 6 (2) of the GDPR. This means that we will continually update and assess our legitimate interests as we have done when producing the latest version of this policy. We set out below our most recent assessment of our current business needs against the three legal tests designed to satisfy the legitimate interest requirements under Data Protection Law:

(i) Identifying our legitimate business interests – We are a commercial enterprise servicing a growing market for reliable early-stage business information. We have taken the time to ask our customer-base about their requirements. We know that our Products contribute to better deal-flow pipelines, better benchmarked data, independent and standardised startup reviews, and more accurate valuation comparators.

(ii) The necessity of processing some amounts of personal data is obvious if our specific services and Products are to be optimally used by our growing partner and customer base. We collect publicly available information on early stage businesses, each of which is run by living individuals. The fact we collect some moderate amounts of personal data is therefore inevitable, but highly controlled. We store, file, review and use all our early stage business data for the exclusive purposes of our Products and the on-going maintenance and discharge of our contractual and other duties with respect to our partner microsites, applications, and websites primarily. We also process personal data in order to grow our business, make optimal use of our communications and messaging, enhance the D RISK IT brand, provide customer services, and improve the engagement experience for all our end- users, business partners, and stakeholders (including future prospects). We realise the severe limitations to our aims, which would result if we were not able to process personal data as we do. We have researched the market and conclude there is a distinct lack of any other less intrusive means to deliver the above interactions, customer services, brand enhancement, and benefits for individuals than via the data-processing we currently conduct.

(iii) We have weighed the balance of the rights and interests of our business with interests of our end-users, business partners, startups, and stakeholders to have their privacy specially protected. We are aware from our growing customer base that they have a good understanding of the value of our relationship with them and that they reasonably expect us contact, engage, and communicate with them, and develop the Products which all require the processing of personal data to proportionate degrees. Furthermore, we have considered the impact of our types of data processing in relation to individuals (from having emails, director and company officer names, IP addresses, job titles, and other contact data). When compared with other industries and other kinds of data processing which can involve a lot of sensitive personal data we take the view that there is marginal or no harm or risk to the rights and freedoms of the valued customers and contacts we have at D RISK IT.

Our legitimate interest is prudently counterbalanced by the constant right of an individual to make a data access, cessation of processing or erasure request to us so that we can stop such processing when required.

Your rights under modern data protection law

Your rights You have the following rights, as a result of the latest data protection rules set out in the GDPR, in relation to your personal data:
(a) to request a copy of any personal data that we hold about you (essentially your “subject access rights”);
(b) to be told, where any information is not collected directly by us, what available information exists as to the source of the information about you;
(c) to be told of the existence of automated decision-making (and any personal profiling we conduct, noting that D RISK IT concentrates on company profiling, not individual profiling);
(d) to object to the processing of data where the processing is based on either the conditions of public interest or our legitimate business interests;
(e) to have all personal data erased (the right to be forgotten) which practically involves the removal of your data and any account you may have with us;
(f) to restrict processing where you have objected to the processing;
(g) to have inaccurate data amended or destroyed; and
(h) to prevent processing that is likely to cause unwarranted substantial damage or distress to you.

How to make a subject access request – to edit, delete or access your personal information: As you will note above, your rights include rights to ask for a copy of any personal information that we hold about you in our records, to correct any inaccuracies and to update any out-of-date information. We will provide you with a copy of the personal data undergoing processing in electronic emailable form. Any additional copies will incur a fee to cover our reasonable costs. You can also ask us not to send you direct marketing communications (however please note that we may continue to send you service-related (i.e. non-marketing) communications). If you wish to exercise any of these rights please write to us at info@drisk.it.

Sharing Your Information: Except as described below, we will not share your information with any third parties. If you create an account directly on a third party website (such as a Partner Microsite or offer or link) or via a third party application, any information that you enter on that website or application (and not directly on a D RISK IT Product or site) will be shared with the owner of the third party website or application and D RISK IT. These sites are governed by their own privacy policies and you are encouraged to review their privacy policies before providing them with your personal information. D RISK IT is not responsible for the content or information practices of such third parties. All other data that we share with third parties will be anonymised and aggregated, but will never identify you or your company.

We may disclose the information you provide us:
• as required by law, such as to comply with a writ, legal claim, regulatory request from the ICO, or FCA, or similar legal process;
• When we believe in good faith that disclosure is necessary to protect our rights, protect your safety or the safety of others, investigate fraud, or respond to a government request;
• if D RISK IT is involved in a merger, acquisition, or sale of all or a portion of its assets, you will be notified via email and/or a prominent notice on our website of any change in ownership or uses of your personal information, as well as any choices you may have regarding your personal information;
• to any other third party with your prior consent to do so.

Cookies: We may use technologies such as cookies, web beacons, or scripts to gather information about how you and others interact with our Products. For example, we will know how many users access a specific area or features within our site and which links or features they clicked on. We use this information to understand and optimize how our site is used, improve our marketing efforts, and provide content and features that are of interest to you.

Security & Data Retention: The security of your personal information is important to us. We have in place suitable technical and organisational measures, which comply with Article 32 of the GDPR (Security of Processing). We will retain your information for as long as your account is active or as needed to provide you services via the Products. Once your account has been deleted, we will only retain and use your information as necessary to comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes, and enforce our agreements. If you wish to cancel your account or request that we no longer hold your personal information, contact us at info@drisk.it.

International Transfers: D RISK IT procures its hosting service from 1&1 IONOS, the trading name of 1&1 Internet Ltd, whose servers are based in the UK. Information we collect may be transferred to, stored and processed in any country or territory where one or more of our partners or third party service providers (e.g. our hosting company) are located or maintain facilities. If in future your personal data may be subject to transfer outside the European Economic Area (EEA), we will take all steps reasonably necessary to ensure that your data is treated with no less protection than it would receive if transferred and stored within the EEA: we adhere to statutory appropriate safeguards relating to restricted transfers of information outside the EEA referred to at Article 46 of the GDPR.

Changes to This Privacy Policy: We may update this Privacy Policy to reflect changes to our information practices. If we make any material changes we will notify you by email (sent to the e-mail address specified in your account) or by means of a notice on the website www.drisk.it prior to the change becoming effective. We encourage you to periodically review the website www.drisk.it for the latest information on our privacy practices. This Privacy Policy and all changes made hereto as described in the previous paragraph remains effective unless and until we inform you otherwise through email (sent to the e-mail address specified in your account) or by means of a notice on the website www.drisk.it prior to the expiration of this Privacy Policy.

Contact: If you have any questions or comments about this Privacy Policy, you can contact us by email at the following email address: info@drisk.it. You can also use this address if you wish to request a copy of the personal data we hold about you.
