Privacy Policy

This Privacy Policy (the “Policy”) provides an overview of how PayDay Takaful collects, uses, and processes your data when you use PayDay Takaful’s mobile App (the “App”). PayDay Takaful is committed to safeguarding the confidentiality and privacy of any information entrusted to it, including any personal information collected from you.

Please read this Policy carefully, as it becomes legally binding when you use our App.

1. The purpose of Collecting Personal Information

PayDay Takaful may ask you to provide personal information so that it may submit it to the relevant financiers to process your finance applications and to allow you to interact with it.

2. Data we collect about you

We will collect and process the following data about you:

2.1 Information you give us.

You may give us information about you when you sign up to use our App, e.g. when you provide us with personal details like your name, address, ID number, mobile number, email address, personal description and photograph; and it may include financial information (including bank account information, salary and employment details). This also includes information you provide through your continued use of our App, your participation in discussion boards or other social media functions on our website or App, through entering a competition, promotion or survey, and by reporting problems with our App.

2.2 Information we collect about you. 

When you use our App, we may automatically collect the following information:

    • Details of the transactions you carry out when using our App, including the geographic location from which the transaction originates;
    • technical information, including the Internet protocol (IP) address used to connect to the Internet, your login information, your mobile device type, model and number;
    • information about your visit, including the full Uniform Resource Locators (URL) clickstream to, through and from our App (including date and time); products you viewed or searched for; page response times, download errors; length of visits to certain pages, page interaction information (such as scrolling, clicks, and mouse-overs), and methods used to browse away from the page and any phone number used to call our customer support number.

2.3 Information we receive from other sources. 

We may receive information about you if you use any other websites we operate or our other services. We also work closely with third parties and may receive information about you from them. For example:

  • The banks you apply to will provide us with your basic personal information, such as your name and address, as well as your financial information, such as your bank account details, salary and any information your bank may get from the credit bureau or credit agency;
  • business partners may provide us with your name and address, mobile number, as well as financial information, such as bank account information;
  • advertising networks, analytics providers and search information providers may provide us with general information about you, such as confirming how you found our App;

2.4 Sensitive data

We process a limited amount of sensitive data when we verify identity documents containing biometric data. Such processing of biometric data (including monitoring how you log in and interact with our App) allows us to validate your identity and support the detection of fraudulent or suspicious attempts to access your PayDay Takaful Account.

2.5 Children’s data

Our products and services are directed at adults aged 18 years and over and are not for children. PayDay Takaful’s Policy is never to collect or maintain information about anyone under 18 knowingly.

3. How we protect your personal information

3.1 We take the safeguarding of your information very seriously and take several steps to ensure it stays secure:

    • Communication over the Internet between you and PayDay Takaful servers is encrypted using solid asymmetric encryption. This makes it unreadable to anyone who might be listening in.
    • We update and patch our servers promptly.
    • Our technical security team proactively monitors for abnormal and malicious activity in our servers and services.
    • Most of the sensitive information you gave us will be encrypted. This means it’s unreadable from server hard drives without the decryption key.

3.2 We restrict access to your personal information to those employees who need to know such information due to the nature of their jobs. We continuously educate and train our employees about the importance of confidentiality and privacy of customers’ personal information. We maintain physical, electronic and procedural safeguards that comply with the relevant laws and regulations to protect your personal information from unauthorised access.

4. Ways we use your information

4.1 We use your information to:

    • carry out our obligations relating to your finance application and provide you with the information, products and services;
    • comply with any applicable legal and regulatory requirements;
    • notify you about changes to our services;
    • administer our App and for internal operations, including troubleshooting, data analysis, testing, research, statistical and survey purposes;

6. Sharing and storing your data

For example, to provide you with a fast and efficient service, we may use ADM to verify your identity documents or to confirm the accuracy of the information you provided (such a service might be provided by one of our partners).

8. Data Retention
