How do we use your information?

Data retention

We retain Personal Information to fulfill our legal or regulatory obligations and for our business purposes. We may retain Personal Information for longer periods than required by law if it is in our legitimate business interests and not prohibited by law. If your account is closed, we may take steps to mask Personal Information and other information, but we reserve our ability to retain and access the data for so long as required to comply with applicable laws. We will continue to use and disclose such Personal Information in accordance with this Privacy Policy.

Processing of Personal Information

We may act in different roles, either as a data controller or data processor, when processing your Personal Information. In general, a data controller is the person or entity that alone or jointly determines the purposes and means for processing data, and a data processor performs actions with data to carry out a data controller's instructions. In some instances, we will be the data processor and in others, we may be the data processor. For example, when we use your Personal Information to perform Services initiated by you or a Corporate Client, we are a data processor. But, for example, if we use Personal Information to market Services to you, we are the data controller.

Process or Processing of data means any method or way that we handle Personal Information or sets of Personal Information, whether or not by automated means, such as collection, recording, organization, structuring, storage, adaptation or alteration, retrieval, and consultation, disclosure by transmission, disseminating or otherwise making available, alignment or combination, restriction, erasure or destruction of Personal Information.

We process Personal Information for the following reasons:

  • Provide, maintain and improve the Ando account services, and other Services we offer you with our Partners;

  • Provide and deliver the products and services you request, process transactions and send you related information, including confirmations;

  • Verify your identity and prevent fraud;

  • Communicate between our Partners (as applicable) in order to provide Services to you;

  • Send you technical notices, updates, security alerts and support and administrative messages;

  • Respond to your comments, questions and requests and provide customer service;

  • Monitor and analyze trends, usage and activities in connection with our Services;

  • Personalize and improve the Services based on your usage;

  • Link or combine with information we get from others to help understand your needs and provide you with better service; and

  • To make automated decisions for user authentication determination, fraud mitigation and security assessment and determination, and location determination to provide location-based services.

How we share your Personal Information

We may disclose any information we collect about current and former customers, including Personal Information, to affiliates and non-affiliated third parties as follows:

  • With financial institutions and financial services providers, including the Partner that provides banking services in connection with your Ando account;

  • With non-financial companies, such as identity verification service providers and fraud prevention service providers that use the information to provide services to Ando and other companies;

  • With a non-affiliated third-party to access and transmit your personal and financial information from your linked bank account(s). You grant the third-party the right, power, and authority to access and transmit this information according to terms of their privacy policy as separately provided to you; and

  • With other nonaffiliated companies for our everyday business purposes, such as to process transactions, maintain accounts, respond to court orders and legal investigations or report to credit bureaus. For example, in connection with our everyday business purposes, we may share information about you as follows:

    • In response to a request for information, if we are required by, or we believe disclosure is in accordance with, any applicable law, regulation or legal process;

    • With relevant law enforcement officials or other third parties, such as investigators or auditors, if we believe it is appropriate to investigate fraud;

    • If we believe your actions are inconsistent with the spirit or language of our user agreements or policies, or to protect the rights, property and safety of Ando or others;

    • In connection with, or during negotiations of, any merger, sale of Ando's assets, financing or acquisition of all or a portion of our business to another company; and

    • At your direction.

We may disclose your first and last name, Ando username, profile photo, payment amount and the state associated with your address in your Ando account to other Ando members. We do this to assist Ando members send and receive payments from other members via Ando’s Pay Friend and to track a member’s impact within the Impact Center.

We may disclose to certain referral agents whether you electronically deposit a portion of your paycheck above a minimum threshold or if you have completed a minimum number of payment transactions to determine whether the referral agent must be compensated for referring you.

Aggregated Data: We may also share aggregated or de-identified Information, which cannot reasonably be used to identify you and which does not include Personal Information. For example, we may share certain transaction details such as amounts and zip codes in a pseudo-anonymous fashion to promote security and validity of Ando's services.

How do we protect your information?

We take commercially reasonable measures to help protect your Personal Information from loss, theft, misuse and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration and destruction. Additionally, we implement policies designed to protect the confidentiality and security of your Personal Information. Except as detailed herein and as it relates to our Partners, we limit access to your Personal Information to employees that have a business reason to know such information, and implement security practices and procedures designed to protect the confidentiality and security of such information and prohibit unlawful disclosure of such information in accordance with our policies.
