Privacy policy

Data privacy is essential for Enerfip, and in accordance with the values of transparency that we defend we would like to inform you about how we use your personal data;

We therefore make available to you, in accordance with current regulations, our data processing and protection policy.

Data collection at Enerfip

As part of our activity as a European service provider of crowdfunding services, we collect certain personal data, to which you expressly consent by using the site.

When is your data collected?

We collect information about you when you:

  • visit our platform

  • create an account

  • communicate** with us

We may collect this information only after you have identified yourself on the site or provided us with your identity (at an event for example).

Why do we collect data?

This information is collected for the following purposes:

  • to enable you to access the Services available on the Site,

  • the provision of investment services in accordance with Regulation (EU) 2020/1503 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 7 October 2020 on European providers of crowdfunding services for businesses (order receipt, transmission and placement services);

  • the proposal to open an "EnerJ" account for minors or an Investor account for legal entities,

  • to draw up a declaration of suitability for the investments proposed on the Enerfip website, in accordance with Regulation (EU) 2020/1503 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 7 October 2020 on European providers of crowdfunding services for businesses (order receipt, transmission and securities placement services).

Preserving the confidentiality of your data

The personal data collected is not used for any other purpose and the Company does not market this personal data.

None of the information transmitted by Users when creating their Profile, apart from their user name, is visible to other Users. This information is protected by a user name and password so that only the User has access to his/her personal information.

How long does Enerfip keep your data?

The length of time personal data is kept depends on the purpose of the processing and the circumstances in which it is collected:

  • It is in principle five (5) years due to the regulatory obligations applicable to Enerfip in its capacity as a European provider of crowdfunding services;

  • It may be aligned with the duration of the investors' contractual commitment as a result of their consent to the investor services agreement if this is longer for the purposes of the Fundraising. This second situation arises in the case of an investment. It should be noted that in this case, the five (5) year period does not begin to run until the last repayment made in connection with this investment. However, an intermediate archive may be requested from Enerfip once the last repayment has been made in the context of the last investment held in Enerfip's portfolio.

We use your data to process the financial questionnaire in order to draw up a declaration of suitability and a simulation of your ability to bear losses linked to your investment.

  • project promoters:** After a subscription, the project promoter is required by law to keep and update a register of securities issued.
