We are a provider of cashflow forecasting and management services. We work with our users:

We will be the party responsible for making decisions about how your personal information is processed (the “controller”) when (i.) you have access to the Fluidly platform, and we are providing you with services directly; or (ii.) if we contact you about our services as a prospective customer (see Marketing below). In each case, your personal information will be processed in accordance with this policy.

Where you are a customer of our Accountant Partners, and where they, with your agreement, have authorised our processing of your personal information in connection with their use of our services (which includes our preparation of aggregate level insights), they will be the party responsible for processing your personal information. In which case it will be processed in accordance with their privacy notice – please see your accounting service provider’s website for further information.
