WHAT DOES Finance Buddy DO WITH YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION?
Lenders and/or lending partners choose how they share your personal information. Federal law gives consumers the right to limit some but not all sharing. Federal law also requires Lenders and/or Lending Partners to tell you how they collect, share, and protect your personal information. We are not a Lender and/or Lending Partner or agent. We provide marketing services but we do follow privacy practices generally required of Lenders and/or Lending Partners. Please read this notice carefully to understand what we do.
To help the government fight the funding of terrorism and money laundering activities, federal law requires all financial institutions to obtain, verify, and record information that identifies each person who opens an account. What this means for you: When you open an account, we will ask for your name, address, date of birth and other information that will allow us to identify you. The other types of personal information we collect and share depend on the product or your loan request. This information can include:
- Social Security number and income, name, address, telephone number, email address, driver's license number, military status, information about your spouse or dependent, identification of individuals close to you such as your job supervisor.
- Banking account information, ABA/Routing numbers, and income information.
- Credit history and assets including whether you rent or own, income source, how you get paid, how often you get paid, length of time with employer and bank, and next two pay dates.
- IP address, browsing and log data, your desired loan amount and any other information that may be required in a loan request form.
We may combine personal information we collect from you with other information about you that we receive from third party sources, such as to ensure our loan request form records are accurate. Lenders and/or Lending Partners that purchase your information may also supplement your personal information with other information about you that they obtained from other sources.
