2. Types of Data and Collection Methods
We receive data that you actively submit, as well as data that we track. This includes:
Our PrecisionLender platform is provided as a Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) solution for commercial banks. It collects, processes, and stores data under the direction of our clients as a Processor, as such term is defined within Article 4 of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). While the primary purpose of our platform is to process commercial loans, it is our clients who choose what business data they share with us based on the services they use, and they own all rights in and to their business data. If Personal Data is uploaded by a client, we have no direct relationship with the individuals whose Personal Data that our platform processes on behalf of such client. For this reason, an individual who seeks access, or who seeks to correct, amend, or delete inaccurate data should direct his/her query to the relevant client (who is the Controller, as such term is defined within Article 4 of the GDPR). If the client asks us to remove the data, we will respond to their request within 10 business days of such request. As stated in our Terms of Service, Consumer information such as social security numbers, driver’s license numbers, and financial account numbers (“Prohibited Customer Data”) should never be provided to us or uploaded and/or entered into the services.
To provide and support our platform and service, as well as to market to new clients, we retain Personal Data of the individuals who are employed by our clients, prospective clients, suppliers, and business partners. This data is limited in nature and consists of business contact information such as name, email address, phone number, and physical office address.

5. Data Retention
We do not store the Personal Data for longer than is legally permitted and necessary for the related processing purposes. The storage period depends on the type of Personal Data, the purposes of use, and applicable law, and therefore varies per use.
Typically, we store Personal Data for as long as the user is using our platform or services or for as long as we have another purpose to do so and, thereafter, for no longer than is required or permitted by law or necessary for internal reporting and reconciliation purposes.
We erase Personal Data provided by you after the above described storage period or when a client or individual provides us with a verified request to erase the data, subject to laws and regulations that allow us to deal with the request in a different way.
