Other Privacy Policies. For information about how we collect, use and share your financial information, please refer to our Financial Privacy Notice.
Information You Provide To Us. You can provide information to us on our Site through various means, including:
The information we collect from you may be collected directly from you through our Site or indirectly from a third-party website (like Facebook) or a third-party mail service (like MailChimp) to the extent such third-party websites or services are used to create your account or communicate with us. This information may include personal information, such as:
No Information From Children Under Age 13. If you are under the age of 13, please do not attempt to register with us at this Site or provide any personal information about yourself to us. If we learn that we have collected personal information from a child under the age of 13, we will promptly delete that information. If you believe we might have any information from a child under the age of 13, please Contact Us or call us at (872) 216-2612.
Information We Collect Automatically. We collect certain information automatically as you use our Site, such as:
Google Analytics. The information above is collected primarily through our use of Google Analytics to help analyze how users use the Site. The Google Analytics tool uses “cookies,” which are text files placed on your computer, to collect standard Internet log information and visitor behavior information in an anonymous form. The information generated by the cookie about your use of the Site (including IP address) is transmitted to Google. This information is then used to evaluate visitors’ use of the Site and to compile statistical reports on website activity for Company. For more information regarding Google Analytics please visit Google’s website, and pages that describe Google Analytics, such as www.google.com/analytics/learn/privacy.html.
Pixel Tags. We may use “pixel tags,” also known as “web beacons,” which are small graphic files that allow us to monitor the use of our websites. A pixel tag is a type of technology placed on a website or within the body of an email for the purpose of tracking activity on websites, or when emails are opened or accessed, and is often used in combination with cookies. A pixel tag can collect information such as the IP (Internet Protocol) address of the computer that downloaded the page on which the tag appears; the URL of the page on which the pixel tag appears; the time the page containing the pixel tag was viewed; the type of browser that fetched the pixel tag; and the identification number of any cookie on the computer previously placed by that server.
3. HOW WE USE AND SHARE YOUR INFORMATION
To Provide Services and Information. As described above, we collect information from you so that we can provide the ACH transfers to and from your registered account (the “services”) that you request using the Site, and provide information that you request from us. We may send you newsletters or other communications, and we may contact you regarding any services you request. We may provide information to third party service providers that help us process the services that you request.
These service providers will have access to your personal information in order to provide these services, but when this occurs we implement reasonable contractual and technical protections to limit their use of that information to helping us provide the service. We use demographic information to better understand our customers and improve our products and services.
Advertising and Marketing. Some websites may belong to ad networks that use your browsing history across websites to choose which ads to display on their sites; the displayed ads may include advertising for Company. To learn more, and to opt out of seeing interest-based advertisements on these sites, visit the Network Advertising Initiative and the Digital Advertising Alliance websites (www.networkadvertising.org and www.aboutads.info). Websites may also offer their own opt-out methods for interest-based advertising.
Your Consent. In addition to the sharing described elsewhere in this Policy, we may share personal information with companies, organizations or individuals outside of the Company in a de-identified format when we have your consent to do so. We require opt-in consent for the sharing of any sensitive personal information. Sensitive personal information is a particular category of personal information relating to racial or ethnic origins, political or religious beliefs or sexuality.
Legal Proceedings. We will share personal information with third party companies, organizations or individuals outside of the Company if we have a good-faith belief that access, use, preservation or disclosure of the information is reasonably necessary to:
Meet any applicable law, regulation, subpoena, legal process or enforceable governmental request.
Detect, prevent, or otherwise address fraud, security or technical issues.
Protect against harm to the rights, property or safety of Company, our users, customers or the public as required or permitted by law.
You can access and update certain information we have relating to your online account by signing into your account and going to the App Account section of our Site. You can opt-out of receiving marketing and promotional e-mails from Company by using the opt-out or unsubscribe feature contained in the e-mails. You can also opt-out of receiving newsletters from Company by using the opt-out or unsubscribe feature contained in the e-mails.
You can close your online account by visiting the App Account page. Closing your account will withdraw the current Tip Jar balance associated with your account and return the balance to your registered bank account. If you close your account, we will no longer use your online account information or share it with third parties.
We use industry standard physical, technical and administrative security measures and safeguards to protect the confidentiality and security of your personal information. However, since the Internet is not a 100% secure environment, we cannot guarantee, ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us. There is no guarantee that information may not be accessed, disclosed, altered, or destroyed by breach of any of our physical, technical or managerial safeguards. It is your responsibility to protect the security of your login information. Please note that e-mails and other communications you send to us through our Site are not encrypted, and we strongly advise you not to communicate any confidential information through these means.
Under California’s “Shine the Light” law, California residents who provide personal information in obtaining products or services for personal, family or household use are entitled to request and obtain from us once a calendar year information about the customer information we shared, if any, with other businesses for their own direct marketing uses. If applicable, this information would include the categories of customer information and the names and addresses of those businesses with which we shared customer information for the immediately prior calendar year (e.g., requests made in 2012 will receive information regarding 2011 sharing activities). To obtain this information, please send an email message to [email protected] with “Request for California Privacy Information” on the subject line and in the body of your message. We will provide the requested information to you at your e-mail address in response. Please be aware that not all information sharing is covered by the “Shine the Light” requirements and only information on covered sharing will be included in our response.
Company’s websites, including websites directed to residents in countries and jurisdictions outside of the United States, are operated and managed on servers located and operated within the United States. By using and accessing our Sites, residents and citizens of countries and jurisdictions outside of the United States agree and consent to the transfer to and processing of personal information on servers located in the United States, and that the protection of such information may be different than required under the laws of your residence or location.
