5. We Will Not Share Your Personal Data

Any of your Personal Data that is collected by SeedTribe or its affiliates will be kept confidential by SeedTribe and its affiliates, and we will not disclose it to any third parties. The only exceptions to this are:

  • We may disclose certain of your Personal Data to third-party service-providers solely in the course of their provision of services to SeedTribe. We will take reasonable precautions to ensure that these service-providers are obligated to keep confidential any of your Personal Data that they use.
  • We may disclose certain of your Personal Data if we are required to do so by law, regulation or order of court or other legitimate government body or arbitration panel. This includes, among other things, any Personal Data that may be requested by HM Revenue & Customs and the Financial Conduct Authority.
  • If you have made an investment or applied to invest in a company via our website, we may disclose your personal information to the company (or the company's professional representatives) that you have invested or applied to invest in.
  • In the event that we intend to enter into a major corporate transaction, such as a sale of control of our or another business on a stock exchange, we may disclose certain of your Personal Data to potential buyers, underwriters or advisors. If we do this, we will take reasonable precautions to ensure that the recipients of your Personal Data are obligated to keep it confidential.

6. Changes of Business Ownership and Control

We may, from time to time, expand, reduce or sell our business, and this may involve the transfer of certain divisions or the whole business to other parties. Your Personal Data will, where it is relevant to any division so transferred, be transferred along with that division and the new owner or newly controlling party will, under the terms of this Privacy Policy, be permitted to use your Personal Data for the purposes for which it was supplied by you.

7. Security of Your Personal Data

The data that we collect from you may be transferred to, and stored at, a destination inside or outside the European Economic Area ("EEA"). It may also be processed by staff operating inside or outside the EEA who work for us or for one of our suppliers. Such staff maybe engaged in, among other things, the fulfilment of your orders, the processing of your payment details and the provision of support services. By submitting your personal data, you agree to this transfer, storing and/or processing. We will take such steps as we consider reasonably necessary to ensure that your data is treated securely and in accordance with this privacy policy.

All information you provide to us via email or our website is stored on our secure servers.

Where we have given you (or where you have chosen) a password which enables you to access certain parts of our website, you are responsible for keeping this password confidential. We ask you not to share a password with anyone.

The security of your personal information is important to us. When you enter sensitive information (such as bank account information) on our order forms, we encrypt the transmission of that information using secure socket layer technology (SSL).

We follow generally accepted standards to protect the personal information submitted to us, both during transmission and once we receive it. No method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure, however. Therefore, we cannot guarantee its absolute security. If you have any questions about security on our website, you can contact us at

9. Use of Cookies

"Cookies" are small files that reside on your computer's hard drive, generally contain an anonymous unique identifier and are accessible only by the website that placed them there and not any other sites.

SeedTribe may set and access cookies on your computer. In addition, we may gather certain information about you, including details of your operating system, browser version, domain name and IP address, and the details of any website you linked from to the website. We do this in order to enable us to provide the services available on the website and to monitor and improve the website.

To the extent that we have third-party advertisements on the website, those third parties may also place, set and access cookies on your computer. They do this to track how many unique users have seen a particular ad and to provide advertisements that are more relevant to a given user's interests. We do not have access to these cookies, and other than allowing them to be served, we play no role in these cookies at all.

You can choose to enable or disable cookies in your web browser. By default, your browser will accept cookies, however this can be altered. In addition, you may delete cookies that have already been placed on your hard drive. For further details please consult the help menu in your browser. Disabling or deleting cookies may prevent you from using the full range of services available on the website.

10. Communications between You and SeedTribe

We may intercept, record and/or monitor any communication(s) (including telephone calls or other electronic communications) between you and us. We may do so in order to resolve queries in the future and for the purposes of ensuring security, staff training and complying with our regulatory and legal responsibilities.

In the case of communications by email you should note that, as emails are not encrypted (and may therefore be intercepted by third parties) and as the identity of the sender cannot be confirmed, you must NOT provide your security details by email and should avoid providing any Personal Data to us by email.

11. Changes to Your Personal Data

If you see that any of your Personal Data that is included in the "Profile" section of your SeedTribe account is inaccurate, please revise or update it using the website. Alternatively, if you believe that any of the Personal Data we hold about you is inaccurate, you may write to us at the address given in paragraph 17 in order to correct it.

It is your responsibility to ensure that any Personal Data you have provided to us remains accurate and to notify us (either by the website or by letter) if there are any changes in your Personal Data.

12. Severability

We have made every effort to ensure that this Privacy Policy adheres strictly with the relevant provisions of the UK Data Protection Act 1998 and other applicable laws. However, in the event that any of these provisions are found to be unlawful, invalid or otherwise unenforceable, that provision is to be deemed severed from this Privacy Policy and shall not affect the validity and enforceability of the rest of the Privacy Policy. This clause on "Severability" shall apply only within jurisdictions where a particular term is illegal.

13. No Waiver

In the event that either you or we fail to exercise any right or remedy contained in this Privacy Policy, that does not mean you or we (as applicable) have waived that right or remedy and so shall not be construed as a waiver.

14. Revisions

From time to time we may update this Privacy Policy to take account of changes in the law or for any other reason. If we update this Privacy Policy, we will post a new version on the website, and as soon as you use the website after they are posted, you will be deemed to have agreed to the updated version, but you will still be bound by the terms of any previous versions to which you have agreed or been deemed to agree. If there is a conflict between two versions of the Privacy Policy to which you have agreed or been deemed to agree, the more recent version shall take precedence unless it is expressly stated otherwise.

15. Communications

If you wish to communicate with us about anything related to this Privacy Policy, you may do so by sending a letter by first-class or registered post to our Data Protection Officer at the address given in paragraph 17.

16. Choice of Law

This Privacy Policy shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of England and Wales.

17. Jurisdiction

You agree to submit to the exclusive jurisdiction of the courts of England and Wales. This means that if you want to bring a legal action against us, or we want to bring a legal action against you, it must be done in one of these courts.
