This privacy policy (“Privacy Policy”) applies to consumers (“you”, “your”, or “User(s)”) of our website, mobile application, APP Eli, and the services provided by APP and BankingOn, Inc. (“BankingOn”) (collectively the “Services”). Your use of the Services indicates your acceptance of all of the provisions of this Privacy Policy. If you do not agree to these practices, please don’t use the Services.

We appreciate the trust you place in us and would not want to jeopardize your trust in any way. We respect your privacy and are committed to protecting the security of your personal information. The Privacy Policy discusses our collection, storage, use, and disclosure of your personal information, which may include without limitation information that enables us to identify you directly or indirectly, such as your name, date of birth, address, social security number, telephone number, email, location, or other identifier specific to you (“Personal Information”).


What information does BankingOn collect?

How does BankingOn use my information?

Our primary goal in collecting Personal Information from you is to facilitate efficient transactions, to carry out our obligations to you arising from the Services, to improve the Services, and to provide you with information regarding changes to the Services. More specifically, these uses might include responding to your questions or customer service needs, authenticating your access to APP, connecting APP to your checking account, making transactions on your behalf, notifying you of changes to this Privacy Policy or Terms of Service, monitoring our systems, detecting and preventing fraud, and enforcing our Terms of Service.


How does BankingOn share your Personal Information?

BankingOn will not share, rent, or otherwise disclose your personal information without your permission except for the following circumstances: (i) to trusted employees, contractors, and agents so that they may perform services on your behalf; or (ii) to complete or confirm a transaction that you conduct with us. We will not share your Personal Information with: (a) other financial companies for joint marketing purposes; (b) affiliated companies for their everyday business practices; or (c) any third parties for marketing purposes.


We may share your Personal Information with unaffiliated third parties: (i) if you request or authorize it; (ii) if the information is provided to help complete a transaction for you; (iii) if the information is provided to: (a) comply with applicable laws, rules, regulations, governmental and quasi-governmental requests, court orders, or subpoenas; (b) enforce our Terms of Service or other agreements; or (c) protect our rights, property, or safety or the rights, property, or safety of our Users or others (e.g., to a consumer reporting agency for fraud protection, etc.); (iv) if the disclosure is done as part of a purchase, transfer, or sale of services or assets (e.g., in the event that substantially all of our assets are acquired by another party, your Personal Information may be one of the transferred assets); (v) if the information is provided to our third-party service providers to perform functions on our behalf (e.g., analyzing data, providing marketing assistance, providing customer service, processing orders, etc.); (vi) for our everyday business purposes; or (vii) as permitted by applicable law or otherwise described in this Privacy Policy. When you are no longer our customer, we continue to share your information as described in this Privacy Policy. Note that we reserve the right to release information that we collect to law enforcement or other government officials, as we, in our sole discretion, deem necessary or appropriate.


Is my information secure?

No method of electronic transmission or storage is 100% secure. Therefore, we cannot guarantee absolute security of your Personal Information. We take commercially reasonable steps designed to protect data collected through the Services and your Personal Information. When your bank account information is transmitted via our Services, it will be protected by encryption technology, such as Secure Sockets Layer (SSL). Note that our Services run on software, hardware, and networks, any component of which may occasionally require updates, maintenance, or repair and which may experience problems or breaches of security beyond our control. Our third-party service providers will be held to the same or stricter standards in their access and use of your Personal Information as we hold our own employees, contractors, and agents, and we will only transfer your Personal Information to trusted third parties who provide sufficient guarantees with respect to their technical and organizational security measures governing their processing of your Personal Information. Furthermore, our third-party service providers will only be permitted to use your Personal Information for the purpose BankingOn intends and only in accordance with our instructions. We may disclose anonymized, aggregate information to third-parties for our commercial purposes, as well. We currently share such various forms of information with partner banks, data processors, data providers, external cloud databases, and cybersecurity applications. You also play a role in protecting your Personal Information. Please safeguard your username and password for your APP account and do not share them with others. If we receive instructions using your APP account login information, we will consider that you have authorized the instructions. You agree to notify us immediately of any unauthorized use of your APP account or any other breach of security. We reserve the right, in our sole discretion, to refuse to provide our Services, terminate your accounts, and to remove or edit content.


Accessing Your Information

You must notify us of any change in your Personal Information by updating your APP account profile through our Services. Any changes will affect only future uses of your Personal Information. Subject to applicable law, which might, from time to time, oblige us to store your Personal Information for a certain period of time, we will respect your wishes to correct inaccurate information. Otherwise, we will hold your Personal Information for as long as we believe it will help us achieve our objectives as detailed in this Privacy Policy. You can ask us whether we are storing your Personal Information and you can ask to receive a copy of that Personal Information. Before sending you any Personal Information, we will ask you to provide proof of your identity. If you are not able to provide proof of your identity, we reserve the right to refuse to send you any Personal Information. We will respond as quickly as we can to your requests for details of Personal Information we hold about you.
