Personal information collected on a voluntary basis may include e-mail address, name and phone number. The information collected is internally reviewed, used to improve the content of our website, notify our visitors of updates and respond to visitor inquiries.

2. Collection and use
2.1 Email and personal details
If you are a visitor to our website, you will be offered various downloads, offers or services. Should you choose to access a part of MoneyLink Financial Planning that is not freely available, e.g. a lead-generation offer or a paid product / service, you will be asked to provide your email address and agree to receive ongoing (relevant) communications. If you do not grant the requested consent, accessing the special offers may not be possible.
Depending on which offer you are accessing, your data will be processed in one or more of the following ways:
• Added to the MoneyLink Financial Planning email marketing list on MailChimp, that itself adheres to privacy laws with strong security. When you open or click links in our emails, your action will be automatically noted so that MoneyLink Financial Planning can serve you better.
• At no time are credit card details processed by MoneyLink Financial Planning itself, nor are they stored on the MoneyLink Financial Planning host server.
