The member agrees that in case of existence of reasonable evidence and if the specific circumstance requires it, THE MONK will have the right to collect, process and use those data, which are necessary to reveal any illegal or non-contractual use of THE MONK. This information may be disclosed to a credit reporting or fraud prevention agency, which may keep a record of this information. This is only to confirm your identity (no credit check is performed and your credit rating is not affected).

7.2. We reserve the right to disclose your information if requested to do so by the police or any regulatory or governmental authority in the context of investigations into activities while visiting the website in the event of a legal order, official order or official preliminary investigation. In addition, we cannot be held responsible for the privacy policy of the financial institutions with which we cooperate, especially for their terms of use regarding the execution of various transactions.

7.3. We take all the necessary actions to ensure the security of personal data and activities both collected by us in accordance with the provisions of this Policy and during the use of the website. However, it is pointed out that in particular the transmission of information via the Internet is not completely secure.
