What Personal Information does 22seven collect and how is it used?
We only collect Personal Information that is reasonably necessary for us to provide the Service to you.
- Registration information: Name, email address and password you provide when you register to use the Service so that we know who you are, can authenticate your use of the Service and are able to contact you about Service related matters.
- Security Credentials: Your User ID, PIN, Password and any other required authentication information to automatically collect your Account Information from the secure websites and systems of your nominated Product/Service Providers on your behalf. From the time you submit this information to us it is always transferred and stored in encrypted form. It is stored only by Yodlee (our Authorised Aggregation Service Provider) and is only ever used to collect your account information from your nominated Product/Service Providers on your behalf to be used in the Service. Your Security Credentials are never disclosed to any other third party and at no time can employees of 22seven or Yodlee access them.
- Account Information: Balances, transactions and other account-specific details that Yodlee's automated aggregation service collects from your Product/Service Providers on your behalf or that you provide directly to the 22seven Service via the Website or Mobile Applications. You will have full access to this information via the Service. You will also have access to the information and insights our automated algorithms derive from your Account Information. We only store the last four-digits of account and credit card numbers when received as Account Information.
- Billing information: Bank account, credit card or other payment details you provide or may have provided. This information is handled separately from your Account Information and is disclosed to our authorised billing service providers during the collection process and is only used for this purpose.
- Correspondence information: Information we collect when we receive correspondence from you via email, social media, mobile text messages and phone calls. This includes your sender information, the content of the message and the metadata pertaining to the message. We use this information to communicate with you and to improve the Service.
- Public forum/message board information: Your name (as provided at registration) as well as the messages you post on our public forum/message board. This information is visible to all users and will remain as such even if you terminate your use of the Service.
- Website and Mobile Application connection information: Your IP address, type, version and language of Internet browser, operating system and version, type of device, screen resolution, referring and exit web pages. We use your IP address to understand the geographic makeup of our customer base and to assist with the identification of potential unauthorised access. We use the rest of this information to optimise the usability of the Service on your access device. We may also compile aggregate information to analyse usage patterns and make improvements to our Service.
- Additional verification information: Copies of your identify documents or utility bills in order for us to verify your identity should you be unable to unlock your account through our standard online verification process.
Does 22seven ever disclose my Personal Information to third parties?
In addition, we may disclose your Personal Information to law enforcement, other government officials, or other third parties as may be necessary in connection with an investigation of fraud, intellectual property infringements, cyber crime or other activity that is illegal or may expose us or our Authorised Service Providers to legal liability.
Does 22seven use my information for any purpose other than providing the Service to me?
We may aggregate and analyse your 'de-identified' information (i.e. stripped of all uniquely identifiable attributes and that cannot subsequently be re-identified) with that of other customers and information received from other sources. We will do this to develop market insights, troubleshoot problems, detect and protect against error, fraud and other criminal activity, identify behaviour/usage patterns and improve our Service generally. We may publish or share the insights we develop through this process.
Will 22seven ever sell my Personal Information?

Collective Investment Scheme Portfolios
Terms and conditions
1. Information about your investment
- a. The investment that you have made is the purchase of participatory interests (“Units”) in Collective Investment Scheme portfolios (“Unit Trusts”).
- b. Two types of portfolios are being made available by Old Mutual Unit Trusts, namely:
- i. Taxable Investments
- ii. Tax-free Investments
- c. Should you have invested in a Tax-free Investment then:
- i. The Tax-free Investment is offered to individual people only (i.e. not for Trusts, companies, etc.) by Old Mutual Unit Trust (“we” or “us” or “our”) through 22seven Digital (Pty) Ltd’s (“22seven”) digital application (“22seven Application”).
- ii. “Tax-free” means that you will not pay income tax on the interest earned in the portfolio, or dividend withholding tax on the dividends earned in the portfolio, and when you eventually sell, you will pay no capital gains tax on the growth of the value in your portfolio.
- iii. You can invest up to R30 000 each year, until your total investment reaches R500 000 which is the lifetime limit that you are allowed to save in a tax-free investment or savings account. If you go over these limits you will be taxed at 40% of the extra amount by SARS.
- iv. Your Tax-free Investment account will be opened when we have received your application form and supporting documents through the 22seven Application, your debit order has been actioned and your money reflects in our bank account.
- v. You can withdraw money from your portfolio at any time, but remember that should you withdraw from your Tax-free Investment then the amount you withdraw remains part of your maximum lifetime investment amount and cannot be reinvested at a later stage. This means withdrawals permanently reduce your total amount of allowable tax-free savings.
- vi. You may switch into a Tax-free Investment and between unit trusts in the Tax-free Investment but you may not switch out of this portfolio.
- d. Should you have invested in a Taxable Savings Investment then the capital growth and returns accruing to your investment will be subject to the tax laws prescribed in the Income Tax Act 58 of 1962 and may be subject to income tax.
- e. In order to withdraw money from your portfolio, you need to sell your units using the 22seven Application and the money must be paid into the same bank account that we have on record for you.
2. Bank details for investments
- a. This is the bank account that you provided to Old Mutual Unit Trusts through the 22seven Application.
- b. You agree to fund your investment and all future payments from this account or the account that you later provide to us through the 22seven Application.
- c. Please note:
- i. Deductions cannot be made from credit cards.
- ii. Payments can only be made to your own bank account
3. Administrative arrangements
If all our requirements are met by 15h00 you will receive the same day’s price. Otherwise the first working day’s price will apply once all requirements have been met, with the same cut-off times applying.
4. Minimum investment amounts
- a. We may specify minimum investment amounts from time to time.
- b. We are under no obligation to accept below minimum investments and reserve the right not to debit or to cease debiting your account under certain circumstances.
5. Reinvestment of distributions
Distributions are automatically reinvested.
6. Financial intelligence centre act
Certain buying and selling requests require at least proof of identity (e.g. bar-coded ID/passport) and residential address (e.g. recent utility bill), unless we have your current documents on record or you have made them available to 22seven through the 22seven Application.
7. Statutory disclosure
Unit trusts are generally medium- to long-term investments. Past performance is no indication of future performance. Shorter term fluctuations can occur as your investment moves in line with the markets. Fluctuations or movements in exchange rates may cause the value of underlying international investments to go up or down. Unit trusts can engage in borrowing and scrip lending. The fund’s TER reflects the percentage of the average Net Asset Value of the portfolio that was incurred as charges, levies and fees related to the management of the portfolio. A higher TER does not necessarily imply a poor return, nor does a low TER imply a good return. The current TER cannot be regarded as an indication of future TERs. A schedule of fees, charges and maximum commissions is available from Old Mutual Unit Trust Managers (RF) (Pty) Ltd. You may sell your investment at the ruling price of the day (calculated at 15h00 on a forward pricing basis). Certain funds may be capped to be managed in accordance with their mandates. Old Mutual is a member of the Association for Savings and Investment South Africa (ASISA).
By using the 22seven Application you declare that:
- a. you accept the number of units sold to you by virtue of the 22seven Application and you warrant that you have full power and authority to enter into and conclude this transaction, with the necessary assistance where such assistance is a legal requirement.
- b. you are aware that this product offers no cooling-off rights.
- c. you know that the cost of buying units may include an initial charge plus VAT, depending on the amount invested, and that there are no guarantees on your capital.
- d. you acknowledge that there are further allowable deductions from the unit trust (e.g. an annual service fee) that impact on the value of your investment.
- e. you are satisfied that the facts you provided through the 22seven Application are accurate and complete.
- f. you are aware of the unit trust’s/unit trusts’ objectives, risk factors, the charges and income distributions, as set out in the unit trust fund fact sheet/s.
- g. you acknowledge that we may borrow up to 10% of the portfolio to bridge insufficient liquidity.
- h. you have read and fully understood all the pages of these terms and conditions together with all information contained in the 22seven Application.
- i. you hereby authorise us to debit the account mentioned above with the monthly amount/lump sum specified.
- j. you further authorise us to accept instructions from you via the 22seven Application
