Maintaining your privacy is really, really important to us. You entrust us with sensitive financial information, and we take that responsibility seriously.
Version 5.0: This policy was last updated on 9th May 2018 in line with GDPR requirements. It may be updated in the future and we'll post the new version here on our website. We will never deviate from our overall philosophy of maintaining your privacy, though.
1. General Information
2. What information do we collect?
Your personal data
When we say your "personal data", we mean any information that identifies any person, that you provide to us during your Login in to website or subscribe in to our website, after you subscribe, or that is contained in any other information that you provide to us (or that you authorise a third party to give to us on your behalf).
Your "personal data" may also be contained in information that we collect about you in connection with your use of the 2 Monkey Vapors website and/or 2 Monkey Vapors application. The financial data that you enter into or that is provided to 2 Monkey Vapors from your bank, isn't part of the "personal data" discussed here, unless it identifies a person – for more information about your financial data, jump ahead to the next section. When it comes to your personal data, we comply with our obligations under the General Data Protection Regulation and any other applicable data protection legislation from time to time.
Information you provide – Your personal data includes the information you provide, or that you authorise someone else to provide, when you sign up for an account or sign up to receive our emails, or when you answer questionnaires, surveys, enter competitions or provide information in your account profile, on the 2 Monkey Vapors website, or during a support enquiry about you and/or your organisation. It also includes information you provide when you complete any forms, which you submit to us (e.g. to authorise us to receive the transaction information from your bank account). It also includes information you upload to your 2 Monkey Vapors account.
Examples of this personal data include your name, your email address, contact and/or employee names; and any correspondence when you contact us. It could also include your bank account details and bank transaction details (if it identifies a person). It could also include details in any invoices or receipts that you upload (if they identify a person).
We do not collect or process special categories of personal data, as defined under GDPR. Also, we do not knowingly collect or solicit any personal data from anyone under the age of sixteen or knowingly allow such persons to register for 2 Monkey Vapors. 2 Monkey Vapors is not directed at children under the age of eighteen. In the event that we learn that we have collected personal data from a child under age eighteen without verification of parental consent, we will delete that information as quickly as possible.
Information we collect - We collect information about your website usage, to improve our service and to understand trends to enhance and customise content and advertisements. Some of this data may be "personal data", where it identifies a person. Here's the information that we collect and how we use it:
Information Others Provide to Us - We may receive information from others (e.g. your bank) that you have authorised that third party to provide to us. This could include the initial information to enable us to create your account (e.g. your full name, your email address and your business type) and also your bank transaction data.
In addition to your personal data, we will also hold financial data that you enter into 2 Monkey Vapors. Examples of your financial data include your organisation's invoices, expenses, receipts and bank transactions.
You own all of the financial data you enter or upload into 2 Monkey Vapors and have ultimate control over who has access to it. For example, if you want to give your accountant access to your financial data, you can switch on their access in 2 Monkey Vapors. Keep in mind, however, that with great power comes great responsibility - it is your job to safeguard your password and account access. Also, you need to make sure you have obtained any relevant consents or permissions necessary for you to upload any personal data to 2 Monkey Vapors and for it to be used as set out in this policy.
3. What do we use for data for?
Providing 2 Monkey Vapors - We use your personal data to enable us to register you and provide you with access to 2 Monkey Vapors application and the 2 Monkey Vapors website. It will also enable us to contact you by email, fax, post, SMS, social media or telephone where necessary concerning 2 Monkey Vapors; to record your personal preferences; to personalise our services to you (such as by pre-populating fields to make it easier for you to provide information when you return to 2 Monkey Vapors application or the 2 Monkey Vapors website). It will also enable us to produce reports you request as part of the services we provide, including regulatory reports and/or other reports. We may also validate your information (and, in some cases, match it against information that has been collected by a third party, for example Companies House) to check that the data we hold about our customers/users is accurate, consistent and current.
Should you choose to use parts of 2 Monkey Vapors that involve providing your personal and/or financial data to third parties (for example, if you choose to give your accountant or your bank access to your data), then your personal and/or financial data will be shared in that way. Such personal and / or financial data may include for example, general, financial and transactional data, and information from your account such as accounting ledger balances, bank transactions and invoice, bill, expense and project details. These third parties will use that data in accordance with any consent you have given us or that you may give to us in the future.
We may use third parties to assist us in providing 2 Monkey Vapors from time to time, and in those cases may pass on your personal and/or financial data to them. In such cases we will only share your data with third parties that we trust, and where there are assurances in place as to how they will protect the data.
Improving 2 Monkey Vapors - We will also use and analyse your personal data and financial data so that we can administer, support, improve and develop our business, customer service and the features of the 2 Monkey Vapors website and 2 Monkey Vapors application generally.

We will only share your data with third parties that we trust, and where there are assurances in place as to how they will protect the data.
Providing Insights - We monitor anonymous, aggregated information about account and financial data so that we can produce insights about small businesses finance. For example, based on an anonymous, aggregate data analysis, we may produce a white paper that reports how most small businesses are not paid on time. We may share these insights with customers, on our blog or other promotional material, use them internally to improve our product and communications, or share with other interested third parties. Just to be clear - we will never identify you or your business in such communications or white papers and will never report data in such a way that your business could be identified.
Contacting you for Marketing Purposes - We may use your personal data to contact you by email, fax, post, SMS, social media and/or telephone to let you know about our other 2 Monkey Vapors and/or third party services, content, offers or product ranges which may be of interest to you. We may also use your financial data to enable us to tailor these notifications (in order to make sure what we are sending you is relevant). We will only use your data in this way where you have provided consent, we have legitimate business reasons for doing so, or where we are otherwise entitled by law to do so. If you would like us to stop providing you with such notifications, just contact us using the details below. Please note, this may take up to one working day to take effect. To stop receiving emails from 2 Monkey Vapors itself (for example, a reminder that your subscription is expiring), you should cancel your 2 Monkey Vapors account.
We may contact you if the specific arrangement we have in place with a third party which impacts you is changing and / or coming to an end and to let you know what will take place next.
