Also known as "performance cookies," these cookies collect information about how you use a website, like which pages you visited and which links you clicked on. None of this information can be used to identify you. It is all aggregated and, therefore, anonymized. Their sole purpose is to improve website functions. This includes cookies from third-party analytics services as long as the cookies are for the exclusive use of the owner of the website visited.
Statistical information is used in reports and to improve our site. For example, we have used analytics data to add, remove or change features of the site based on how popular they are with users.
We track, for example:

The advertisements you see displayed on this, and other, sites are generated by third parties. These services may use their own anonymous cookies to track how many times a particular ad has been displayed to you and may track your visits to other sites where their ads are displayed. Please note that advertisers can only track visits to sites which display their ads or other content. This tracking is anonymous, meaning that they do not identify who is viewing which ads.
Tracking in this manner allows advertisers to show you ads that are more likely to be interesting to you, and also limit the number of times you see the same ad across a wide number of sites. As an example of how advertisers operate, if you recently researched holidays, adverts for holiday operators may subsequently appear on our sites.
We do not have access to, or control over, these third party cookies; nor can we view the data held by these advertisers. Online advertisers provide ways for you to opt-out of your browsing being tracked. More information about the advertisers we use, and how to opt-out, is provided below.

1.2. The Board of Directors of Konvi is responsible for putting a framework in place, and implementing systems, controls, and procedures to identify, escalate and manage conflicts of interest.
1.3. Notwithstanding the provisions of this policy, persons associated with Konvi may invest in projects on equal terms with other investors.
1.4. Every employee of Konvi is responsible for identifying and escalating potential conflicts of interest so that they may be appropriately managed and resolved.

Where such a person invests in a specific crowdfunding project, Konvi shall ensure that such investments are made under the same conditions as those of other investors and that those persons do not enjoy any preferential treatment or privileged access to information.
2.1. In seeking to determine potential conflicts of interest that might be able to affect the financial interests of crowdfunding project owners, Konvi has appointed a Chief Risk Officer. The CRO shall, in observance of the following minimum criteria, assess whether Konvi, or any person associated with Konvi, or any person in a control function directly or indirectly associated with Konvi is exposed to any of the situations listed below:
a. may experience a financial advantage or avoid a financial loss at the expense of the crowdfunding project owner;
b. has an interest in the result of the rendered service or in the result of a transaction concluded at the expense of the crowdfunding project owner other than the interest of the crowdfunding project owner;
c. receives or will receive from a person (other than the crowdfunding project owner) an inducement in relation to a service provided to the crowdfunding project owner, in the form of monies, goods or services, other than a standard commission or fee for that service;
d. has a financial or other incentive to favour the investment conditions of a particular project to the crowdfunding project owner which is not in the best interest of them.

a. Konvi favours itself and related persons’ projects over the projects of other crowdfunding project owners;
b. Konvi may assess crowdfunding project owners in a biased and subjective manner, compared to individuals who have direct or indirect links with Konvi;
c. related persons may enter into crowdfunding transactions at their own expense, using the confidential information entrusted to Konvi.
2.3. Where a conflict of interest may arise, priority should be given to the interests of the crowdfunding project owner, rather than to the interests of Konvi.
3.1. Konvi shall take all necessary actions to ensure that the actions taken by Konvi will be exclusively based on the best interest of the crowdfunding project owner.
3.2. In the performance of their functions, all employees of or persons related to Konvi must ascertain whether there is any conflict of interest, avoid conflicts of interest or withdraw if there are any potential situations that may cause or provoke a conflict of interest.
3.3. If a conflict of interest arises, participation in crowdfunding transactions may be rendered only if the crowdfunding project owner clearly expresses his/her consent concerning the provision of crowdfunding services.
3.4. Konvi takes measures to ensure that:
a. Konvi’s interests have no unfair advantage over the crowdfunding project owner’s interests and its actions must be compatible with the crowdfunding project owner’s interests;
b. personal, financial or other interests of Konvi, its managers, employees or other associated persons have no influence or appear to have no influence on the provision of services to the crowdfunding project owner on behalf of the Konvi;
c. the interests of one crowdfunding project owner are not preferred over those of other crowdfunding project owners.
3.5. Konvi has appointed an employee who periodically monitors and reviews the management of conflicts of interest and the effectiveness of the current procedures. The employee responsible for the management of conflicts of interest must:
a. periodically review the provisions of the Policy and ensure the compliance with the requirements of applicable laws;
b. inform the employees and related persons of Konvi, whether a conflict of interest lies in the ongoing situation, as well as advise on how such a situation should be managed;
c. perform any other action aimed at the proper and timely identification and management of conflicts of interest.
3.6. Konvi shall retain any information that would corroborate the absence of a conflict of interest, as well as documents and other information that may confirm that the crowdfunding project owner was duly informed about the relevant situation and agreed to the further provision of services by Konvi.
3.7. In the event of a conflict of interest, Konvi must inform each crowdfunding owner explicitly, clearly and against a receipt, of any conflicts of interest that may have arisen. This information can also be presented by telephone if it is being recorded and can be used as proof.
3.8. Konvi must present information to crowdfunding project owners on a durable medium and the information should be clearly understandable to them, in order to make an informed decision on potential ongoing collaboration with Konvi, with respect to which a conflict of interest may arise.
3.9. In the event where a conflict of interest arises between several crowdfunding project owners, Konvi shall coordinate the unwinding of the situation in such a way that no crowdfunding project owner would benefit preferentially over another crowdfunding project owner.
4.1. An employee failing to comply with the provisions of this Policy will be subject to disciplinary measures, which may include measures up to and including dismissal.
4.2. In determining the level of disciplinary measures in any particular case, the seriousness and/or frequency of an offense will be taken into account.
