  1. ABOUT THE SERVICES

7.1 Wallet. The ‘Wallet’ enables you to electronically hold, send and receive funds in the form of electronic money in the Supported Currencies through the Airwallex Platform. The funds in the Wallet can be in multiple currencies but only in the Supported Currencies that we offer, which may change from time to time.

7.2 Global Account. You may request Airwallex to open more than one Global Account for a particular Supported Currency.

7.3 How balances are represented. The funds collected through a Global Account will be transferred to your Wallet and be represented as part of the balance in your Wallet for each Supported Currency – there will not be a separate balance shown for a Global Account.

7.4 The Lithuanian Deposit Guarantee Scheme (‘DGS’) does not apply to the funds in your Wallet or collected through a Global Account. You acknowledge that the Wallet is an electronic money account, not a bank account, and is therefore not covered by the DGS.

7.5 As a firm regulated under the EM Law Airwallex holds funds corresponding to electronic money in your Wallet in one or more bank accounts separately from the funds of Airwallex. In the event of the insolvency of Airwallex, you will be paid from these bank accounts in priority to other creditors in accordance with Applicable Law.

7.6 The electronic money in the Wallet: (a) will not expire, except when your Wallet is closed – see clause 20 for more details; (b) will not earn any interest or rewards; and (c) can be withdrawn at any time, subject to certain conditions – see clause 11 for more details.

7.7 We may place interim or permanent restrictions on your use of the Wallet, a Global Account or any other part of the Services depending on certain regulatory requirements, identity verification checks or business requirements, which will be set out in the Acceptable Use Policy or any Additional Terms. These will be communicated to you at the time the restriction is put in place or, if that is not practical due to urgent or unforeseen circumstances, promptly after the restriction is put in place.

7.8 Airwallex Card. If we have agreed to issue you or any Additional Cardholder with a Card, the terms set out in the Card Supplement shall apply to the use of any Cards linked to your Wallet in addition to these terms. The terms of the Card Supplement shall be incorporated and form a part of these terms as if set out in these terms in full.

  1. GETTING STARTED

8.1 Creating your Airwallex Profile. In order to use our Services, you must provide the necessary information as prompted through the Airwallex Platform to register and create your Airwallex Profile. If required by Airwallex, you must provide your bank account details to be linked to your Airwallex Profile.

8.2 Creating a Global Account. Once we have created your Airwallex Profile, you can submit a request to open a Global Account by logging on to the Airwallex Platform and providing the necessary information, including any additional information that we may require from time to time. You may also need to agree to Additional Terms. We will advise you of this requirement, if relevant, when you request to open a Global Account.

8.3 Signing up. You represent and warrant at the time of accepting these terms and on a continuing basis as follows: (a) that these terms are accepted and executed by your duly authorised representative; and (b) that all information supplied to us in applying for your Airwallex Profile and Global Account and subsequently is true, complete and accurate in all material respects and you will not omit or withhold any information which would render the information so supplied false, incomplete or inaccurate in any material respect.

8.4 You can only have one Airwallex Profile, unless we agree otherwise in writing. If we discover that you have more than one Airwallex Profile, at our discretion, we may either merge or close any duplicate profiles, or terminate your Services, if we reasonably believe you have opened them in order to bypass any restrictions in the Services.

8.5 You confirm you are acting on your own account, not on behalf of any other person or legal entity. If you are entering into these terms as trustee of a trust, you must disclose that to us. We will deem any use of the Wallet, including any transfers into and out of the Wallet, to have been carried out by you.

8.6 Setting up Airwallex APIs. You may access the Airwallex Platform through Airwallex APIs as well as the Webapp. However, in order to use our Services through the Airwallex APIs, you must first be approved by us. If you are approved by us, you will need to comply with our API Documentation and reasonable directions regarding the integration and use of the Airwallex APIs.

  1. AUTHORISED USER

9.1 You may appoint an ‘Authorised User’ (for example, any of your directors, officers, employees or professional advisors) to act on your behalf to enter into and confirm FX Conversions and Payments under these terms. You must set up each Authorised User with a User Profile and promptly provide us with the following details of any of your proposed Authorised Users: Customer name, name of Authorised User, Customer address and billing address, phone and email address of Authorised User, and any other contact or identification information of the Authorised User that we may reasonably require.

9.2 You agree that: (a) your Authorised Users have the authority to provide instructions to us for the provision of Services on your behalf; (b) we may rely on instructions given by the Authorised User, and you will be bound by the actions of your Authorised Users, until you provide us with written notice withdrawing or otherwise varying the authority of an Authorised User; (c) we may refuse access to your Authorised User(s) if we are concerned about unauthorised or fraudulent access; and (d) you will promptly report to us any infringements or unauthorised access to the Airwallex Platform, including the Webapp or Airwallex APIs.

  1. RECEIVING PAYMENTS & LOADING MONEY INTO THE WALLET

10.1 Funding your Wallet. You can load funds to your Wallet by logging in to the Airwallex Platform and following the steps as prompted.

10.2 Global Account collection. If we have opened a Global Account for you, you may also receive funds to your Wallet through a Global Account.

10.3 In each case, you will ensure the funds are transferred using the correct bank details and any unique transaction reference number details specified by Airwallex. If you do not provide accurate details, then we may not be able to credit your Wallet. In such cases, we will not be liable for any loss you incur, although we will use reasonable efforts to investigate and credit or return incorrect and inaccurately referenced payments into or from your Wallet.

10.4 You may load funds to the Wallet by way of a bank transfer to Airwallex. We may permit additional methods of receiving or loading money into the Wallet from time to time.

10.5 We will credit your Wallet when we receive your funds. We are not responsible for any funds transferred, and will not record them as available in the Wallet, until we have actually received the funds from you or via a collection through the Global Account. The transfer of funds from you or other payers to your Wallet is a service provided by third parties, and is not part of our Services. We have no control over the time it may take for the transfer of such funds to clear and settle.

10.6 Reversals. We may need to reverse a transaction and either deduct funds we have credited to your Wallet, or return funds we have debited from your Wallet, including in the following circumstances:

(a) the sender, or any relevant payment services provider, reverses a transaction or is likely to reverse a transaction;

(b) the sender made a transfer to you by mistake;

(c) you have provided us with incorrect instructions for the transaction;

(d) we suspect that a transaction is fraudulent, or is in breach of these terms or Applicable Law;

(e) we exercise our rights under clause 20. If you do not have enough funds in your Wallet for us to make a deduction, you must reimburse us as soon as possible, as set out in clause 11.12. If we reverse a transaction, we will do this at the prevailing FX Exchange Rate applicable at the time of the reversal or at the original FX Exchange Rate applicable to the transaction, in our discretion.

10.7 Where the funding/original transaction was paid for by Card, reversals will be effected in accordance with the Card Supplement. For other transactions, where we make a reversal, we may choose whether to make the reversal in the currency of the original transaction or in a separate currency, for example, where the original transaction is not in a Supported Currency which can be held in your Wallet, we will generally choose to convert the amount of the reversal into your Base Currency. Where we are required to perform any currency conversions in connection with the reversal of a transaction, we will do this at the prevailing FX Exchange Rate applicable at the time of the reversal or at the original FX Exchange Rate applicable to the transaction, in our discretion.

  1. MAKING PAYMENTS AND FX CONVERSIONS

11.1 Your instructions. You may instruct us to make a FX Conversion or Payment at any time by providing the necessary details as prompted in the Airwallex Platform.

11.2 Confirmation. You must have sufficient funds in your Wallet in the relevant source currency to cover the full amount of any FX Conversion or Payment (including Service Fees) that you wish to make. We may decline your instructions if you do not have enough funds, if you exceed any applicable limits, or in accordance with clause 20. When we are satisfied with your instructions we will issue you with a Confirmation.

11.3 When you instruct us to make an FX Conversion or Payment, the amount of the FX Conversion or Payment confirmed in the Confirmation becomes due and payable to us on the date indicated in the Confirmation. On this date your funds will cease to be deemed electronic money and your balance will be deducted accordingly. You will be issued with electronic money again in respect of an FX Conversion in the purchase currency on the Settlement Date.

11.4 FX Exchange Rate. You may access the indicative FX Exchange Rate for an FX Conversion through the Airwallex Platform. The indicative FX Exchange Rate will be quoted to you when you instruct us through the Airwallex Platform and the final FX Exchange Rate will be confirmed when we issue a Confirmation. We will ensure, as far as reasonably practicable, that the confirmed FX Exchange Rate reflects the rate quoted to you. The rate may be different as the rate may have changed between the time of your instruction and the time we issue the Confirmation. You agree that changes to exchange rates come into effect immediately without notice. Changes to the FX Exchange Rate depend on fluctuations in the financial markets outside our control.

11.5 FX Payments. If you are approved to enter into FX Payments, you agree to enter into FX Payments only for the purpose of facilitating payment for identifiable goods or services. If we reasonably believe that you intend to enter into the FX Payment for other purposes, we:

(a) may decline to accept your instruction in respect of an FX Payment; or

(b) if we have already accepted your instruction, we may cancel the FX Payment.

11.6 Settlement requirements. The issuance of a Confirmation means that the FX Conversion or Payment has been authorised and can no longer be cancelled. We will deduct the amount of your FX Conversion or Payment from your Wallet immediately at the time we issue a Confirmation. However, if you are approved to post-fund you must:

(a) for an FX Conversion (or Payment, if the Payment is linked to a FX Conversion): deposit any amount specified in the Confirmation in cleared funds by Settlement Cut-Off; and

(b) for a Payment: ensure there are sufficient cleared funds in the Payment currency available to Airwallex by the Payment Date.

11.7 Date. We will deduct the amount of your FX Conversion or Payment from your Wallet when we issue a Confirmation or, if you are approved to post-fund the FX Conversion or Payment, at the same time that we receive the relevant funds from you. If that date is not a Business Day, or if we receive your instructions after 5pm on a Business Day, then the date may be adjusted by us to the next day that is a Business Day.

11.8 Execution time. If you are making a Payment and/or FX Conversion, we will remit the Payment and/or effect the FX Conversion as soon as possible. Generally, we will transfer funds to a payee’s payment service provider within 24 hours after we accept your instructions. The methods of crediting the funds may be provided by third parties (for example the bank where the payee has their bank account) and are not part of our Services. We do not have any control over the amount of time it may take for a payee’s bank or payment provider to credit funds to the payee, but would generally expect this to take less than 5 Business Days, unless a longer period is required by Applicable Law.

11.9 Failed FX Conversions and Payments. We may in our sole discretion, acting reasonably, decide to cancel the FX Conversion or Payment, or delay the FX Conversion or Payment by rolling it over to the next Settlement Date or Payment Date (as applicable), due to reasons outside of our control such as:

(a) failure of conversion in the sell currency by the Customer to Airwallex on any FX Conversion; or

(b) failure of Payment in the Payment currency by the Customer to Airwallex on any Payment.

11.10 Transaction limits. We may apply limits to the amount of any one or a series of Payments, and we will tell you if we do so. For example, we may apply limits if you ask us to or if we reasonably think it would help manage the risk of fraud in a proportionate way.

11.11 Right of rejection. We reserve the right to withhold, reject, or delay any transaction in order to comply with Applicable Law. We may not accept your instructions for a Payment or FX Conversion if:

(a) no valid exchange rates are available from our correspondent banking partners, liquidity providers, or other financial institutions;

(b) any relevant anti-money laundering or counter financing of terrorism conversion limits are exceeded; or

(c) you have not complied with your obligations under these terms including the Acceptable Use Policy.

11.12 Obligation to repay. You cannot have a negative balance in your Wallet. If any transactions or charges (including any chargeback, reversal of a transaction, or deduction of fees) take your Wallet below zero, you must immediately repay the amount owing to us, without requiring notice from us to do so. If you do not, we may suspend use of your Wallet or refuse to provide the Services to you. We may also take reasonable steps to recover any amount owing to us (such as taking legal action or using debt collection services) and charge you for the cost of these services.

11.13 We can deduct funds from your Wallet if you owe us money, including the Service Fees. You authorise us to deduct the Service Fees and any other amounts that you owe us from time to time from the funds in your Wallet. If you do not have enough funds in your Wallet to cover these amounts, we will not accept or process your instructions and may refuse to provide the Services to you. We may also, at your cost, take reasonable steps to recover the amount owing (such as taking legal action or using debt collection services).

  1. SAFETY AND SECURITY

12.1 Keep your Wallet safe. In order to use the Airwallex Platform, you (or your Authorised User) must log in using the unique password and any multiple-factor authentication: for example, we may require your Authorised User to authenticate that they are the Authorised User when logging in to the Airwallex Platform, or for certain transactions made using the Airwallex Platform. You must store all log-in information and passwords to access the Airwallex Platform safely and securely at all times and only allow Authorised Users to access the Services.

12.2 Contact us if you suspect your Wallet may be compromised. You must contact us immediately by email to [email protected] and change your password if you suspect:

(a) your Wallet, Global Account, or access to the Airwallex Platform or other security credentials are stolen, lost, used without your authorisation or otherwise compromised; or

(b) someone else finds out your log-in information and password for your Wallet. Any undue delay in notifying us may affect the security of your Wallet, Global Account, or access to the Airwallex Platform and result in you being responsible for financial losses.

12.3 Check the transactions in your Wallet regularly. All of your activity is displayed in the Airwallex Platform. You must contact us immediately by email to [email protected] to report any (i) suspected or actual unauthorised transaction, (ii) incorrectly initiated or executed transactions such as those having not been executed or having been executed late, (iii) certain charges and interest you are liable to pay as a result of such transactions, or (iv) other security concerns regarding the Airwallex Platform. We may be able to refund money you have lost if the transaction is due to our mistake, fraud, or errors with your transaction (see clauses 12.4, 12.7, 12.9 and 12.10). If you do not notify us of any unauthorised or incorrectly initiated or executed transactions or transactions which have not been executed or were executed late or of certain charges and interest you are liable to pay as a result of such transactions, without undue delay, and at the latest within 13 months (or within 3 months if you are a Corporate Customer) of the debit date of the transaction, on becoming aware of any unauthorised or incorrectly executed payment transaction, you may lose the right to have the matter corrected or money refunded. You also may not be able to claim a refund if:

(a) you have breached these terms;

(b) you gave us incorrect instructions for the transaction (we may reasonably assist you to recover the funds, where possible, but do not guarantee that this would be successful); or

(c) you are a Corporate Customer and any losses are not the direct result of our act or omission.

12.4 Unauthorised transactions. We will refund you as soon as practicable, and, except as permitted under Article 38(1) of the Payments Law, in any event no later than the end of the business day following the day on which we become aware of the unauthorised transaction, for an unauthorised transaction and restore you to the position you would have been in had the unauthorised transaction not taken place, subject to the following:

(a) where the Services, your Wallet, Global Account, or any log-in information and passwords are used without your authorisation you will be liable for any losses arising out of that unauthorised transaction if we believe you should have been aware of the unauthorised use;

(b) if you do not promptly notify us of security issues: (i) in line with the timeframes of clause 12.3, you will be liable for any losses you incur up to the time that you notify us; and (ii) within 13 months from the date of the Payment (or within 3 months if you are a Corporate Customer), we will have no liability for the unauthorised transaction;

(c) if we find that you or your Authorised Users, or anyone else acting on your behalf, has acted fraudulently (or, if you are a Corporate Customer, recklessly) we will not refund you in any circumstances;

(d) you will be solely liable for all losses if you have (i) acted fraudulently, (ii) with intent or gross negligence compromised the security of your Wallet or the Airwallex Platform or (iii) if you are a Corporate Customer, failed to, or if you are a Consumer, with intent or gross negligence failed to, comply with your obligations to use them in accordance with these terms, and to take all reasonable steps to keep all log-in information and passwords confidential and secure;

(e) provided we are able to provide a refund in accordance with Applicable Law; and

(f) if you gave us incorrect instructions for the Payment, we may reasonably assist you to recover the funds, where possible, but do not guarantee that this would be successful.

12.5 Where we refund you for an unauthorised transaction we will credit value date your balance no later than the date on which the amount of the unauthorised payment transaction was debited.

12.6 Where we refund you for an unauthorised transaction but subsequently find that you did not comply with your obligations under this clause 12, you must reimburse us for the value of the unauthorised transaction.

12.7 Non-execution or defective execution of transactions. Unless we can prove that the payment service provider of the recipient has received the amount of your Payment on time, we will be liable to you and will – without undue delay – refund your Wallet (the credit value date being no later than the date on which the amount was debited) with the amount of the non-executed or defective Payment. Where applicable, we will then restore you to the position you would have been in had the defective Payment not taken place. Upon request, we will immediately – without charge – make efforts to trace any non-executed or defectively executed Payment and will notify you of the outcome.

12.8 Late execution of transactions. Unless we can prove that the payment service provider of the recipient has received the amount of your Payment on time we will be liable to you. Where a Payment is executed late, and this is our fault or if you ask us to, we will request the payment service provider of the recipient of your Payment to ensure that the credit value date for the recipient's account is no later than the date the amount would have been value dated if the transaction has been executed correctly.

12.9 We will refund you any charges for which you are responsible and any interest which you have had to pay as a consequence of the non-execution or defective or late execution of a Payment.

12.10 Where the payment service provider of the recipient is located outside the EEA, clauses 12.7, 12.8 and 12.9 above will not apply to you.

12.11 You acknowledge that:

(a) subject to these terms and provided you are not a Consumer, Airwallex will not be responsible for or otherwise guarantee the performance of any transaction you enter into via the Airwallex Platform;

(b) you must provide or obtain any equipment or telecommunications lines and connections that may be necessary for you to use or connect with the Airwallex Platform;

12.12 If you are a Consumer, clause 12.11(e) does not apply. However, you may be liable for our reasonable costs in the circumstances set out in clause 12.11(e) (i) to (iii).

  1. SERVICE FEES

13.1 You will pay us the Service Fees for the Services, which are set out in the fees table available on www.airwallex.com (which forms part of these terms) or as otherwise agreed in writing with us.

13.2 Tax. All amounts payable to us under these terms: (a) are exclusive of all taxes and similar fees now in force or enacted in the future, all of which you will be responsible for and will pay in full; (b) will be paid in full without any set-off, counterclaim, deduction or withholding unless prohibited by Applicable Law. If the Customer is obliged by Applicable Law to deduct withholding tax from any payment: (i) it will promptly notify Airwallex of the requirement; (ii) the Parties will make all necessary filings in order to ensure the provisions of any applicable tax treaty applies to the payment; (iii) the Customer will pay to Airwallex such additional amount as will result in the receipt by Airwallex of the full amount which would otherwise have been receivable had no withholding or deduction been payable; (iv) the Customer will pay to the relevant authorities the full amount required to be deducted or withheld when due; and (v) the Customer will promptly forward to Airwallex an official receipt (or a certified copy), or other documentation reasonably acceptable to Airwallex, evidencing payment to such authorities.

Global Online GDPR Centre

Welcome to the Airwallex Global Online GDPR Centre

Airwallex is committed to protecting the privacy of everyone who engages with our platform. We also value the importance of transparency with respect to our privacy practices.

We created this Airwallex Privacy Center to help you find answers to frequently asked questions about how we collect and use personal data, the rights that individuals have in relation to personal data held by Airwallex, and how Airwallex complies with international data protection laws, such as the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) of the UK and EU.

This content is not legal advice, has been published for your general information purposes only, may not be exhaustive or current and may be amended from time to time without notice to you.

What is the GDPR?

The GDPR is the data protection regulation that gives individuals more control over their personal data. The European Union (EU) and United Kingdom (UK) have separate but similar versions of the GDPR.

Under the GDPR, organisations must take great care when processing personal data. Organisations must ensure there is a legal basis for every data processing activity and they must tell people how and why data is used. Individuals also have greater rights under the GDPR, and organisations must be accountable for all processing.

In addition, certain requirements must be satisfied before EU / UK individuals’ personal data may be transferred outside the EU or the UK, unless the organisation receiving the personal data is located in a permitted jurisdiction white listed by the European Commission or UK government. The list of white listed permitted jurisdictions may be found on the European Commission’s website here or the UK government website here.

What is personal data?

Personal data is any information that is related to an identified or identifiable natural person (e.g. you), such as your name, email address, username, ID, bank account number, card details, telephone number, personnel number, number plate, appearance, customer number or address. The definition under the GDPR is broad, and can include information that could be used indirectly and/or with other information to identify a natural person – such as device identifiers or IP address.

What does ‘processing’ mean in this context?

Processing means any operation that is performed on personal data, such as collection, recording, organisation, structuring, storage, adaptation or alteration, retrieval, consultation, use, disclosure by transmission, dissemination or otherwise making available, alignment or combination, restriction, erasure or destruction.

Who does the GDPR apply to?

The GDPR applies to any data processor or data controller in the EU or UK that processes personal data, as well as any data processor or data controller outside the EU or UK that processes the personal data of individuals in the EU or UK residents where the processing activities are related to:

  1. offering goods or services to data subjects in the EU or UK (even if those goods or services are provided free of charge); or
  2. monitoring the behaviour of individuals taking place in the EU or the UK.

Global Privacy Policy

You can learn about how we collect, use and share information in our Global Privacy Policy. Our Global Privacy Policy can be found at this link.

Is Airwallex acting as a data controller or a data processor?

We can be either or both, depending on the exact context of the data processing.

A “data controller” is the entity that determines the purposes and means of the data processing taking place, i.e. the main decision maker that exercises overall control over the data processing. For example, a data controller would make decisions on what types of personal data to collect and for what purpose(s).

A “data processor” is an entity that acts on behalf of and at the direction of a data controller in processing personal data. As the data processor is acting on the instructions of the data controller, it does not exercise control or decision making over the processing of personal data.

Data controllers and data processors have different responsibilities under the GDPR – for example, controllers are in charge of identifying a lawful purpose or legal basis, and must facilitate individual rights requests.

Airwallex is a data controller where we decide the purposes and means of the data processing taking place. Such data processing activities include (among other things):

  1. providing the Airwallex products and services;
  2. developing new, or enhancing existing, products;
  3. providing customer support;
  4. monitoring, detecting and preventing fraudulent activities on our platform; and
  5. complying with the legal and regulatory obligations that apply to Airwallex.

Under the above, Airwallex decides what personal data needs to be collected in order to pursue these actions, hence it is acting as a data controller in respect of these activities.

Airwallex is a data processor where we are given personal data by a third party (e.g. a business partner or service provider) and where we follow another party’s instructions on how to process personal data. In this case, Airwallex would not exercise control over how the personal data is to be processed.

What ‘lawful purpose’ or ‘legal basis’ does Airwallex rely on to process personal data?

Airwallex relies upon a number of legal grounds to process personal data.

Please refer to section 4 of our Global Privacy Policy for an overview of the types of personal data we collect from you, and the applicable ‘legal basis’ for each.

What rights do I have over my data?

You may have certain rights to your personal data. If Airwallex is a data controller of your personal data then we are responsible for managing and responding to your request. You can read more about your rights and how you can exercise your rights in our Global Privacy Policy.

Who are Airwallex’s processors and sub-processors and how are they evaluated?

In circumstances where we are acting as a data controller, it may be necessary for us to provide personal data to our affiliates or third parties, in which case that affiliate or third party will usually be acting as an independent data controller (this means personal data is shared with another controller entity who processes the data for their own independent purposes). Airwallex also uses data processors or (where we ourselves act as a data processor) subprocessors to provide services to Airwallex such as technology and payment processing services. We make sure we have appropriate safeguards in place to protect any personal data that is processed, including through contractual obligations.

Before a particular data processor or sub-processor is engaged, Airwallex vets and evaluates that data processor or sub-processor through our vendor management program. As required under the GDPR, we enter into a contract with each data processor or sub-processor before sharing data with the data processor or sub-processor. All potential vendors are also vetted and approved through Airwallex’s information security review process before we use their services. This means we investigate their security standards, check their certifications, etc., before we consider sharing any data.

We have set out in the below table examples of where the above will occur:

Third PartyPurpose
Third party service providersWe engage a variety of service providers to enable us to provide our Services to you. For example, service providers may be used to: facilitate payment processing, support technology or infrastructure, cloud storage, conduct market research, marketing analytics, detect fraud, verify identity and perform audits or other functions. We will share your personal information with such service providers only to the extent necessary to allow the performance of their intended engagement. All service providers and business partners that receive your personal information are contractually bound to protect and use your information only in accordance with this Policy.
Our corporate affiliatesTo facilitate or support us in providing our Services to you, we may share your personal information within our worldwide corporate family of companies among entities that are related by common control or ownership. All related group companies may only use your personal information in accordance with this Policy.
Enterprise PartnersOur Services may be offered to you in conjunction with or facilitated by other financial institutions or other enterprise (an “Enterprise”). Such Enterprises may have access to your personal information but only to the extent required to enable use by you of such products.
Regulatory Authorities: regulators, judicial authorities and law enforcement agencies, and other third parties for safety, security, or compliance with the law.There are circumstances in which we are legally required to disclose information about you to authorities, such as to comply with a legal obligation or processes, address issues relating to security or fraud, or protect our users. These disclosures may be made with or without your consent, and with or without notice, in compliance with the terms of valid legal process such as a subpoena, court order, or search warrant. We are usually prohibited from notifying you of any such disclosures by the terms of the legal process. We may seek your consent to disclose information in response to a governmental entity’s request when that governmental entity has not provided the required subpoena, court order, or search warrant. We may also disclose your information to: enforce our User Agreement or other applicable agreements or policies, including investigation of any potential violation thereof; detect, prevent or otherwise address security, fraud or technical issues; protect our rights, property, privacy, or security, or that of others, as permitted by law; or comply with applicable law, legal process or governmental orders.
Social Media PlatformsSocial media networks such as Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, and Instagram that offer functionalities, plugins, widgets, or tools in connection with our website or mobile application (e.g., to log into an account, or to share content with your friends and followers on social media). If you choose to use these functionalities, plugins, widgets, or tools, certain information may be shared with or collected by those social media companies—for more information about what information is shared or collected, and how it is used, see the applicable social media company's privacy policy.
Potential Acquirers of our businessIf we are the subject or are involved in any corporate merger, acquisition, consolidation, reorganisation, sale, joint venture, assignment, transfer or other disposition of all or any portion of our business, assets or stock (including in connection with bankruptcy or similar proceedings), we may share data with third parties during negotiations. In the event your personal information becomes subject to a different privacy policy, we will make reasonable efforts to notify you beforehand. We also may need to disclose information to a third party in connection with a commercial transaction where we or any of our affiliates are seeking financing, investment or funding.
Other Authorised PartiesIf you provide your consent, we may share your information including your personal information with a third party not defined in this Policy. Such disclosure will only be carried out in the manner described to you at the time you agreed to the sharing. Authorising a third-party application or website to access your Airwallex account or participating in certain promotional activities constitutes such consent to share your information.

Our Affiliates

In addition to the above, any affiliate of our global corporate group that does not contract directly with customers may be a data processor or sub-processor of one or more of the Airwallex data controller(s) that are listed for your reference in Section 2 of our Global Privacy Policy.

What is a Data Processing Agreement and how can I get one with Airwallex?

A Data Processing Agreement (DPA) is a contract between a data controller and a data processor, which sets out the roles and responsibilities of the parties when personal data is processed. The GDPR sets out requirements that a DPA must satisfy in order to be compliant, including guarantees around security and that the processor will only act on our instructions. We have made our template DPAs available to our users. You may access our Data Processing Agreement here and our Data Sharing Agreement here, or you can request one using the contact details set out under the relevant heading below.

International data transfers

The information presented below is for general information purposes only and is not legal advice. As rules surrounding international data transfers may vary across jurisdictions, please consult with your own legal counsel to familiarise yourselves with the requirements that govern your specific situations.

How does Airwallex deal with international data transfers?

Airwallex uses a set of Standard Contractual Clauses (SCCs) published by the European Commission for cross-border data transfers (in the form of a legal contract) to provide a legal mechanism to transfer EU or UK personal data outside of the EEA/UK/Switzerland. These are required under European and UK data protection laws and are incorporated into our agreements.

Airwallex continues to adopt appropriate measures to ensure an adequate level of protection of personal data transferred outside the UK, EEA and Switzerland. Our measures include the SCCs to accommodate international data transfers, as well as a range of technical and organisational measures (described in more detail under the relevant heading below).

Airwallex’s technical and organisational measures

We apply technical and organisational measures to protect the security of personal data. These include an information security management system aligned with ISO27001 and SOC2 Type II as described below:

A.13: Communications security

Airwallex networks are managed and controlled in order to protect information within systems and applications. Airwallex uses technology to perform endpoint verification, has implemented firewalls to segregate environments, has clear segregation between production and non-production environments, access control lists, 2 factor authentication (i.e. software and hard token). Airwallex has also implemented strict endpoint controls for employees connecting to public networks (e.g. WFH arrangements) to consider the increased risk levels and to manage these risks. Airwallex also monitors its platforms to detect any anomalies that may present a threat to the company.

A.14: System acquisition, development and maintenance (13 controls)

Airwallex has implemented a DevSecOps model and embedded security into the SDLC.

It has applied a secured change management process which encapsulates secure coding, configuration, scanning, patching monitoring and frequent testing.

A.15: Supplier relationships (5 controls)

Before onboarding Subprocessors, Airwallex conducts an audit of the security and privacy practices of Subprocessors to ensure Subprocessors provide a level of security and privacy appropriate to their access to data and the scope of the services they are engaged to provide. Once Airwallex has assessed the risks presented by the Subprocessor, then subject to the engagement requirements the Subprocessor is required to enter into appropriate security, confidentiality and privacy contract terms.

A.16: Information security incident management

Security incidents and unauthorized disclosures of customer data are communicated to customers, relevant legal and regulatory authorities, and others as required by law, contract, or at the advice of legal counsel, as per defined in the information security management and data breach standards.”
