Lovonus also has a legal obligation to ensure full compliance with all Anti-Money Laundering and Counter-Terrorist Financing Laws. Lovonus protects against fraud by checking your identity with your Personal Information.


Lovonus provides such information to our subsidiaries, affiliated companies or other trusted third-party service providers or persons for the purpose of processing personal information on our behalf, including validating user credentials, securing data storage, marketing, customer service, fraud detection and other applicable services. Lovonus requires that these parties agree to process such information based on our instructions and in compliance with this Privacy Policy and any other appropriate confidentiality and security measures we consider essential and relevant subject to applicable law. Lovonus requires that these third-parties providers use PII and PID only in connection with the services they perform for Lovonus.

Lovonus may share User information with law enforcement agencies, government officials, or other third parties in the event of a court order or similar legal procedure, regulatory disclosure or when Lovonus believes in good faith that the disclosure of User information is necessary or advisable to report suspected illegal activity or to protect Lovonus property or legal rights.

Lovonus has implemented physical, technical, and procedural safeguards to protect User information from unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, or destruction. Lovonus uses computer safeguards such as firewalls and data encryption and authorizes access to personally identifiable information only for those employees, contractors, and agents who require it to fill their job responsibilities.

Lovonus utilizes a higher duty of care to protect User information, such as credit card or bank account numbers, if disclosure of a particular type of User information could cause direct financial loss; Lovonus further encrypts such information and transmits it under Secure Socket Layer (SSL).

Lovonus shall only retain personal information reasonably required to keep providing Services to you.

Lovonus is required to comply with the Nigeria Data Protection Regulation 2019 (“NDPR”) and other relevant laws and regulations regarding reporting requirements in relation to data breaches and report any personal data breach where there is a risk to the rights and freedoms of a User. Where a personal data breach results in a high risk to a User, such a User also has to be notified unless subsequent steps have been taken to ensure that the risk is unlikely to materialize, security measures were applied to render the personal data unintelligible (e.g. encryption) or it would amount to disproportionate effort to inform the User directly. In the latter circumstances, a public communication must be made, or an equally effective alternative measure must be adopted to inform such a User, so that he/she can take any necessary remedial action.



We may amend this Privacy Policy at any time by posting a revised version on this page. The revised version will be effective at the time we post it unless we provide additional notice or an opportunity to “opt-in” because changes are material or retroactive. If you keep using our Services, you consent to all amendments to this Privacy Policy.

You always be updated for any changes in our policy from our Data Protection Officer.



This Policy is made according to the provisions of NDPR and any other relevant Nigerian laws, regulations or international conventions applicable to Nigeria.
