Some third party companies offer aggregation services (“service”) that allow you to consolidate your financial account information from a variety of sources on a single online location. For example, a service might collect your checking and savings account balances at your bank, the value of your stocks and bonds in your brokerage account and your credit card information. To do this, the service may request your login details to access your personal financial information including your ID and passwords. If you give them permission and your login information, you allow the service to collect the data.
Please use caution when providing personal information to aggregation services. You should always ensure that the aggregator has appropriate policies and practices in place to protect the privacy and security of any personal information to which the company is gaining access.
We are not responsible for the use or disclosure of any personal information accessed by a company or an individual to whom you provide the personal ID and password required to access your accounts through the Site. You will not be able to dispute transactions by aggregator even if you were unaware of the specific action.
If you decide to cancel the service, you should contact the aggregation service first. You may also contact us to change your card account login information.
