The Personal Information provided by the Users is essential for the provision and enhancement of the Lista Services, with the aim of providing an optimal user experience. As part of our ongoing efforts to improve the Services, we may occasionally request additional Personal Information from Users, beyond what has been previously mentioned, through the Application and/or Site, subject to the User’s explicit consent. Rest assured that we do not disclose this data to any third party, except as outlined within the provisions of this Statement. We reserve the right to verify the information and documents provided by Users using reliable sources. Users authorize Lista and any financial partners and/or third-party service provider to process Know Your Customer (KYC) Documents and determine their eligibility, subject to Lista’s Privacy Statement and Terms. The permission granted by Users for financial partners and/or third-party service providers to access KYC Documents is governed by the providers' privacy policies. The personal information collected during the KYC process is used solely for legal and regulatory compliance purposes, such as anti-money laundering (AML) and counter-terrorism financing (CTF). Lista maintains the confidentiality and privacy of Users' information and only shares it with authorized parties such as its financial partners with the User's explicit consent or as required by law. Lista is dedicated to safeguarding Users' personal data in accordance with relevant data protection laws and regulations.
We reserve the right to utilize your Personal Data for the purpose of communicating with you through newsletters, marketing materials, promotional content, and other information that may be deemed relevant and of interest to you. However, you maintain the option to unsubscribe from receiving any or all of these communications by following the provided unsubscribe link.
To enhance the User experience and provide certain Services more efficiently, we seek the explicit consent of the Users to employ an Optical Character Recognition Reader (OCR). This technology enables us to extract relevant data from Users’ receipts, such as expense items, expense amounts, transaction dates, and expense types. The purpose of utilizing the OCR is to streamline the recording and management of financial information.
In addition, the consent of Users is also requested for the implementation of SMS Parsing functionality. This functionality scans the content of Users’ text messages (SMS) and extracts specific data necessary for the automated tracking of Money In Money Out transactions. The collected data includes details such as expense amounts, expense categories, transaction dates, merchant names, and bank names. It is important to emphasize that the SMS Parsing functionality exclusively scans SMS messages received from service providers and product vendors, including entities such as Credit or Debit Card Issuing Institutes, Banks, mobile carriers, utility companies and retail outlets. Personal SMS messages are not accessed or reviewed by the SMS Parsing functionality.
By granting consent to these technologies, Users enable us to provide a more efficient and comprehensive service that simplifies the management of their financial transactions.
Any Personal Information that you provide shall not be deemed as personal information if such information does not meet the definition of personal information under Republic Act No. 10173 or the Data Privacy Act of 2012. Moreover, it is important to emphasize that any reviews, comments, messages, blogs or similar content posted, uploaded, conveyed, or communicated by Users on the public sections of the Site or an application store (such as the App Store or Play Store) shall be deemed as published content. As published content, it is possible that such information will no longer be regulated as personal information in light of data privacy laws.
Upon registering with the Services, it is probable that we may periodically contact you to request updates or revisions to your Information. This is intended to ensure the accuracy and currency of your provided details.

Periodically, we perform data backups of User information on our cloud-based database. This practice serves the purpose of ensuring that Users can recover their data in the event of data loss or unavailability on their mobile devices, such as device malfunction, loss, or when transitioning to a new device. Additionally, these backups are utilized to generate valuable insights and information regarding Users' spending habits, including weekly spending patterns, behavioral trends, and other relevant metrics. Furthermore, we utilize the backup data to provide aggregated and anonymized statistics on User spending, such as expenditure by category, date, time, bank balances, and similar data points.
We shall retain User's Personal Information in our records for as long as it remains relevant to potentially offer our services to the User. However, once the provision of company Services is no longer applicable or pertinent to a specific User, we shall expunge all Personal Information associated with that particular User from our records.

We will take all necessary measures to investigate and remediate the breach, and restore the reasonable integrity of the data system

(c) Send you transactional emails/SMS or to provide you with information, direct marketing, online and offline advertising and other materials regarding products, services and other offers from time to time in connection with the Lista Service or its parent, subsidiary and affiliated companies ("Platform Entities") and its joint ventures;

(e) To provide you with a personalized service and experience; we do this by linking some or all of your Personal Information such as transactions done with Lista with your activity on our Platform across all your devices and associating and storing this information with a unique platform generated identifier that is generated for each user (guest as well as registered user). When a guest user subsequently registers and creates an account, the information and data relating to such user's past activities gets added to and associated to the registered account;
(f) Research, analyze and understand our audience and what content and advertising they may view, watch or otherwise engage with, in order to improve our service (including our user interface experiences and security features); evaluate your eligibility for certain types of offers, products or services and market such products or services to you; to perform analytics and conduct customer research, including general market research or surveying our customers' needs and opinions on specific issues, generating sales and traffic patterns, and to analyze advertising effectiveness, both on an anonymous basis (e.g., by aggregating data) or on an individual basis (if legally permissible), in combination with other information collected from tracking technologies and aggregate it with information collected from other Users using our Platform, to attempt to provide you with the Services and a better experience on the Platform. For example, one of the ways we use this information is to count the number of times an advert or other content is viewed because this might be the metric by which our advertisers pay us. This information is compiled and analyzed on an aggregated basis. Allow you to participate in interactive features such as Gameplay events on the Platform, providing you with relevant gameplay experience, determining and declaring winners and providing you with prizes; and
(g) Analyze and measure how effective our advertising is by determining which media sources should be paid for delivering a desired action e.g. users who install our application or subscribe (also known as 'attribution'), so that we pay for demonstrated value and don't overspend.
