Third-party financial institutions
Third-party data providers
In order to provide the broadest scope and reliability of services to you, we may from time to time use third party data services to gather your Financial Account Information from financial institutions. These third party providers are bound by privacy obligations that prohibit them from disclosing your personally indentifiable information and allow them to use only anonymized user data. By using our Site, you grant our third-party providers the right, power, and authority to act on your behalf to access and transmit your personal and financial information from the relevant financial institution.
The Site and communications from us may contain links to websites operated by third parties.

We encourage you to review the privacy policies of each website you visit.
Where is your information stored?

How is your information secured?
We are committed to protecting your information from unauthorized access, use, or disclosure.
