Privacy Policy


Privacy & Security

We recognize the importance of protecting your personal and financial information. The personal information that we obtain about you assists us in servicing your account. We know you may be concerned about what we do with this information, and with financial information about your account. The following outlines our privacy practices.

Use of Information

The Data Protection laws and regulations place obligations on users of personal data and lay down principles for fair and lawful processing of this information. We are committed to safeguarding your privacy online. We only use your personal information to help us service your account, to improve our services to you, and to provide you with products you have requested. We do not sell your personal information to third parties, but we may provide your personal information to payment providers to facilitate transactions on your account.

Your personal information is used primarily as a way of authenticating you as the proper owner of your account and as the person to whom withdrawal payments may be made, and to process trades. We collect personal data relating to you directly from you when you fill in the account opening form. In the event of any doubt as to the authenticity of your account details or of any withdrawal request, the company reserves the right to request further authentication information as may be deemed appropriate under the circumstances.

The above personal data that we collect will be held by us and processed for any purpose as may be allowed by law or required by any law.

Please note that our website generates log files that record the IP addresses of accesses to your account. This information is gathered with the sole purpose of assisting in the unlikely event of a need to investigate accesses to your account by unauthorised users. Additionally we may verify certain of the information you supply in the account opening form, or otherwise, with third-party information providers.

Please note that you may update your personal information at any time by logging into the "Settings" section of your account. It is your responsibility to ensure that Smarttradeoption.com is promptly and continually informed of any change in your personal information.

Access to Personal Data

Access to your personal data is strictly prohibited with the exception of key personnel of the Company and only as needed in the performance of their duties.

If the Company is legally required to disclose your personal or financial information by law, regulation or pursuant to the order of a court of competent jurisdiction or a governmental agency, the Company shall, unless legally prohibited, promptly notify you to that effect, in order to give you the opportunity to seek such protection for the information as it deems appropriate. Such required disclosure shall not be construed as a breach of this Terms and Conditions Agreement.

Security Statement

We are committed to making sure your personal data and transactions are secure:

Your password and login ID are unique and passwords are hashed so that not even Smarttradeoption.com staff can read them. This is the reason why we cannot retrieve your password and have to issue you with a new one to your email address if you cannot recall it. We maintain customer balances in cash or cash equivalent. We ensure that 100% of each customer's balance is available for immediate withdrawal, subject to verification. All credit card details are submitted directly to the Visa/Mastercard network using the latest SSL encryption technology, in accordance with bank policies. Our information security policies are based on industry best practices in access control and business continuity. We use identity verification services and real-time fraud detection measures to help protect you from unauthorised access to your account. We also monitor account activity for signs of unusual activity that might indicate fraud and work with collection agencies and law-enforcement agencies to address fraud issues.
