Digital Privacy Policy

This Digital Privacy Policy, in combination with other relevant privacy notices that we provide to you (pursuant to financial privacy laws), inform you of the policies and practices regarding the collection, use, and disclosure of any personal information that we and our service providers collect from or about you in connection with the mobile application and App’s website (the “Services”). Please read this notice carefully to fully understand how we handle user privacy related to our digital presence.

Gathering, Using, and Sharing Information

Types of Information – Through your use of the Services, we may collect personal information from you in the following ways:

  1. Personal Information You Provide to Us.
    • We may collect personal information from you, such as your first and last name, address, email, telephone number, and social security number when you create an account.
    • We may collect the financial and transaction information necessary to provide you with the Services, including account numbers, payment card expiration date, payment card identification, verification numbers, and transaction and payment history.
    • If you provide feedback or contact us via email, we will collect your name and email address, as well as any other content included in the email, to send you a reply.
    • The phone contacts in the mobile app when you share/invite other to use the app.
  2. Personal Information Collected Via Technology. We and our service providers may automatically log information about you, your computer or mobile device, and your interaction over time without Services, our communications, and other online services, such as:
    • Device data, such as your mobile device’s operating system type and version, manufacturer and model, device type (e.g.: phone, tablet), IP address, unique identifiers, language settings, mobile device carrier, network information (e.g.: WIFI, LTE, 3G, 4G, 5G), and general location information such as city, state, or geographic area.
    • Online activity data, such as pages and screens you viewed, how long you spent on a screen, navigation paths between screens, information about your activity on a screen, access times, and duration of access.
    • Cookies, which are text files that websites store on a visitor’s device to uniquely identify the visitor’s browser or to store information or settings in the browser for the purpose of helping you navigate between pages efficiently, remembering your preferences, enabling functionality, and helping us understand user activity and patterns.
    • Local storage technologies, like HTML5 and Flash, that provide cookie equivalent functionality but can store a larger amount of data, including on your device outside of your browser in connection with specific applications.
    • Web beacons, also known as pixel tags or clear GIFs, which are used to demonstrate that an email was accessed or opened, or that certain content was viewed or clicked.
    • Location Information. If you have enabled location services on your mobile device and agree to the collection of your location when prompted by the Services, we will collect your location information when you use the Services; for example, to provide our fraud detection services. If you do not want us to collect this information, you may decline the collection of your location when prompted or adjust the location services settings on your mobile device.

Using Information – We may use the collected personal information from you in the following ways:

  1. General Use. In general, we use your personal information collected through your use of the Services to respond to your requests as submitted through the Services, to provide you the Services you request, and to help serve you better. We use your personal information, in connection with the App, in the following ways:

Link to Other Sites

The App may contain links to third party websites. When you click on a link to any other website or location, you will leave the App and go to another site and another entity may collect personal and/or anonymous information from you. The App’s provision of a link to any other website or location is for your convenience and does not signify our endorsement of such other website or location or its contents. We have no control over, do not review, and cannot be responsible for these outside websites or their content. Please be aware that the terms of this Privacy Policy do not apply to these outside websites. We encourage you to read the privacy policy of every website you visit.

Your Choices Regarding Your Information

  1. How We Respond to Do Not Track Signals. Some web browsers transmit “do not track” signals to the websites and other online services with which your web browser communicates. There is currently no standard that governs what, if anything, websites should do when they receive these signals. We currently do not act in response to these signals. When a standard is established, we may revise our policy on responding to these signals.
  2. Access, Update, or Correct Your Information. You can access, update, or correct your information by changing preferences in your account. For additional requests, please contact us.
  3. Opting Out of Email or SMS Communications. If you provide your phone number through the Services, we may send you notifications by SMS, such as a fraud alert. You may opt out of SMS communications by unlinking your mobile phone number through the Services. If you have signed up to receive our email marketing communications, you can unsubscribe any time by clicking the “unsubscribe” link included in the message or other electronic communication. Alternatively, you can opt-out of receiving marketing communications by contacting us at the contact information under “Contact Us” below.
  4. Opting Out of Location Tracking. If you initially consented to the collection of geo-location information through the Services, you may subsequently stop the collection of this information at any time by changing the preferences on your mobile device. Please note, however, that if you withdraw consent to our collection of location information, you may no longer be able to use some features of the App.

Safeguards & Retention

We implement reasonable administrative, technical, and physical measures to safeguard the information in our custody and control against theft, loss, and unauthorized access, use, modification, and disclosure. Nevertheless, transmission via the internet is not completely secure and we cannot guarantee the security of your information.

The Services are not directed towards individuals under the age of 18, and we do not, through the App, intentionally gather personal information about visitors who are under the age of 18. If a child under 18 submits personal information to us through the App and we learn that the personal information is the information of a child under 18, we will attempt to delete the information as soon as possible.
