Invest Sou Sou and its affiliates are committed to compliance with the privacy requirements of the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act, 15 U.S.C. §§ 6801, et seq. (GLBA), as well as other applicable federal and state laws that govern the use and protection of nonpublic personal information. GLBA Title V governs the treatment of nonpublic personal information about consumers. It requires notice to consumers about a financial institution’s privacy policies and practices, describes when nonpublic personal information may be disclosed to nonaffiliated third parties, and provides mechanisms for consumers to “opt out” from information sharing in certain circumstances. It also imposes requirements to ensure that customer information is properly protected and secured.
This Policy is owned by the Compliance Officer and is reviewed, updated, and submitted to Executive Management at least annually.
Invest Sou Sou utilizes an electronic version of the Consumer Privacy Notice in alignment with the Issuing Bank’s requirements and consistent with the government’s model form. An updated version of the notice will be maintained on Invest Sou Sou’s website.
We generally collect Personal Information in three ways: 1) information you provide to us, 2) information from third parties, and 3) information we collect automatically.
When you use, visit, or otherwise interact with the Services, for example, by contacting customer service, we collect Personal Information that you share with us or our third-party service providers. In order to establish a savings wallet or card account, Invest Sou Sou requests the customer to provider certain personal nonpublic information, including physical address, Social Security number, date of birth, email address, and other personal information that assist in verifying the identity of the individual. The full name, birth date and mobile phone number of a designee to help manage the account (often a spouse or partner) may also be requested to establish supplemental user rights to the applicant’s account, when available and if requested by the applicant.
If a minor requests that an account be created, we ask for the minor’s date of birth in order to determine whether the minor is eligible to set up their own account. Invest Sou Sou does not provide its Services to children younger than 18.
An account holder will often provide financial information to transfer funds from a bank account to fund the Invest Sou Sou account. This financial information is not provided to Invest Sou Sou. We use a third-party to affect this transfer of funds, and users provide the required information to transfer funds to our third-party vendor.
We may also obtain information about you from third parties, including, but not limited to, identity verification services, credit bureaus, financial institutions, and other users to verify your identity or account, detect fraud, engage in collections, or as may otherwise be required by applicable law.
Whenever you interact with the Services, we, as well as our service providers, may collect information about which of the Services you have used and how you have used them. This can include usage information, time and date of activities, location, IP address, operating system version, internet service provider identity, or other usage information. This information helps us manage, improve, and customize the Services’ features and functionality and can be used to identify you like Personal Information.
Invest Sou Sou will not share customers’ nonpublic personal information with non-affiliates. We may share customer information with affiliates to enable them to work on our platform system. Invest Sou Sou will only share customer’s personal information with contracted entities for everyday business purposes such as processing transactions, maintaining accounts, delivering benefits to your account, or responding to court orders and legal investigations. Some examples of how we may use your Personal Information include:
Invest Sou Sou may also share Personal Information with third parties, as follows:
Please be aware that users of the Services may also themselves disclose Personal Information to others:
Invest Sou Sou may share aggregated customer information with third parties to offer partner or reward program benefits, so that Invest Sou Sou may offer you merchant promotions. However, this aggregated information does not identify a specific individual and does not contain Personal Identifiable Information (PII).
Invest Sou Sou maintains the preferences you have provided to us regarding the use, collection, and sharing of information, including how we may contact you.
We use reasonable administrative, technical, and physical security measures to protect such Personal Information against loss, misuse, and unauthorized access, disclosure, or alteration.
We comply with the U.S. Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act and the regulations implementing it (“COPPA”), to the extent applicable to us and to the Services.
Invest Sou Sou does not offer Services requested by children under the age of 18 and we do not knowingly collect “personal information,” as defined under COPPA, directly from individuals under the age of 18.
Collection, Use, and Disclosure of Personal Information
We will not collect additional categories of Personal Information or use the Personal Information we collected for materially different, unrelated, or incompatible purposes without providing you notice.
