Afri-mobile Money Gambia Limited (“we”, “us” and “Afrimoney”) offers a mobile money solution to all Africell Subscribers. Afrimoney’s mobile money platform is a secure way to store and manage money in an account linked to an Africell sim card, similar to a bank account. These mobile money services include domestic money transfer, collection of international remittances, bill payment, payments for goods and services, purchases of Africell services (Airtime, Data, etc.), and receipt of salary, among others. Like most Mobile Money platforms, Afrimoney operates through a network of Mobile Money agents, who serve as cash-in and cash-out (“CICO”) points for Afrimoney users.
Through a partnership with Opareta Inc (“Opareta”), Afrimoney supports Mobile Money agents (the “users”) as they provide financial services to the general public in The Gambia. Afrimoney provides this support through a mobile application (the “Afrimoney agent app” or “Afrimoney platform”) and whilst we do this, we recognize the importance of protecting the privacy of all the information provided to Afrimoney by users on our platform.
Afrimoney collects personally identifiable information that we use to profile our users and administer and manage individual Afrimoney accounts, update our databases, and provide user support.
Afrimoney collects the following personal information from the Opareta app when you register to use the app and apply for financing:

We only allow approved contractors and employees who need to use Personal Information for their work with Afrimoney access to your Personal Information, and third party vendors who store your Personal Information must have adequate security measures in place.

If we become aware of a security breach involving your Personal Information, as soon as practicable, we will email you at the address you’ve provided, and post to the Afrimoney platform a notice of such security breach.
