It is important to keep any information that you provide to us up to date. If any information that you have submitted to us in connection with your use of the Services changes, it is your duty to update such information or notify us of the change.
INFORMATION WE COLLECT
Eco collects information that identifies you as well as other types of information about your activities on the Site and while using the Services. We describe each of these categories of information, and how we collect each of these categories, in more detail below.
- Information You Provide Us. We collect information that you provide us, including things like:
- Personal Information. This includes things like your name, phone number, email address, physical address.
- Identity Verification Information. In order to verify your identity we may require you to provide us with certain government issued identification such as a driver’s license or passport.
- Security Information. To keep your information and account secure, we will require information such as your username and password.
- Financial Information. To facilitate deposits, withdrawals and other transactions, you may be required to provide us with your bank account information, payment card information and related details.
- Information Collected Automatically. Certain other information will be collected automatically while you are using the Site or the Services, including things like:
- Browser-Based Information. We use “cookies”, “pixel tags,” “web beacons,” and other technologies to collect information about your use of the Site. We use this information to improve the quality of our Services, to keep our Site secure, and to make your experience on the Site more meaningful and intuitive (for example, by remembering your preferences or providing you with a localized experience).
- Online & Device Identifiers. This includes things like which device, operating system and browser you are using, IP address, location data, and device event information like Site crashes and the date and time of actions taken on the Site.
HOW WE USE YOUR INFORMATION
We collect and process your information for a number of reasons, including:
- To provide you with the Services. We cannot provide the Services to you without collecting certain personal and financial information. For example, in order for you to complete certain transactions between your bank account and your Eco mobile application, we need to gather information related to your bank and that transaction.
- To comply with legal requirements. Eco is subject to various legal and regulatory compliance obligations that require us to verify your identity in connection with providing the Services.
- To keep your account secure. In order to make sure that only you can access your account and to prevent fraudulent transactions, we need to verify your identity and your security credentials during log-in and in connection with completing certain transactions.
- To provide you with customer support. In order to communicate with you and troubleshoot any potential issues or answer any questions you might have, we need to be able to access certain information you provide to us or that we collect through your use of the Site and the Services.
- To improve Eco. In order to improve the Services we provide we need to know what is working (and what isn’t) so that we can combine that feedback and information with that of other customers to make changes.
HOW WE SHARE YOUR INFORMATION
Eco will never sell your personal information to a third party without your permission. We only share your information with third parties where we have a legitimate need to do so in order to provide you with the Services. We will only share your information for the following purposes:
- Custody Partners. Eco partners with third parties to provide secure custody of your account balance. In addition to you directly agreeing to any terms and conditions from such partners, Eco may need to share certain account information with such third parties to verify and process transactions within your account.
- Service Providers. We contract with certain trusted third party consultants and vendors as part of our business operations. Our agreements with these third parties require them to only use your information in connection with the Services and to protect your information. These include third parties such as cloud storage providers, information technology firms, customer support software providers, and marketing partners.
- Platform Users. Your email address, phone number, and/or username for the Eco Platform (as defined in the User Agreement) may be used by other Users to search for you in order to do a Send Transfer (as defined in the User Agreement).
- Professional Advisors. We may need to share your information with legal, accounting, compliance, insurance and other professional advisors in connection with complying with our legal obligations and business requirements.
- Potential Acquirors. In connection with, or in anticipation of, any sale, merger, financing or acquisition of Eco, we may need to share information as part of such process.
- Legal Processes. In connection with a valid legal request, to prevent fraud, and to protect our legal interests we may be required to share your information.
- Other. We may otherwise share your information if you give us permission or instruction to do so.
HOW WE PROTECT YOUR INFORMATION
Eco has implemented measures intended to secure your information from accidental loss and from unauthorized access, use, alteration, and disclosure. You also play an important role in maintaining the safety and security of your information. Where we have given you access credentials, such as a username and password, you are responsible for keeping these credentials confidential. Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the Internet is not completely secure, and no company, including Eco, can fully eliminate security risks. Although we have implemented measures to protect your information, we cannot guarantee the security of your information transmitted to or from us, including via email, or the security of any links accessible from our Site.
HOW YOU CAN OPT OUT OF CERTAIN PRACTICES
In addition to the circumstances described above, from time to time, we may request your permission to allow us to share your Personal Information with third parties. You may opt out of having your Personal Information shared with third parties, under certain circumstances, or from allowing us to use your Personal Information for a purpose that is incompatible with the purposes for which we originally collected it, or subsequently obtained your authorization, by reaching out to email@example.com or by mail as provided for in the Sharing of Information Disclosure. If you choose to limit the use of your Personal Information, certain features or services may not be available to you.
THIRD PARTY SITES
This Site may, from time to time, contain links to websites owned and operated by third parties (“Third-Party Sites”). We encourage you to review the privacy policies of such Third-Party Sites so that you understand how those websites collect, use, and share your information. We are not responsible for the privacy notices, practices, or other content on Third-Party Sites.
NON-U.S. SITE VISITORS
Eco does not knowingly collect personal information from any person under the age of 18.
ACCESS TO YOUR INFORMATION
You can update, modify, or delete personal information you’ve provided to us by emailing Eco at firstname.lastname@example.org. We may retain certain information as required by law or for necessary business purposes.
California Civil Code Section 1798.83 permits Site users who are California residents to request and obtain from us a list of what Personal Information (if any) we disclosed to third parties for direct marketing purposes in the preceding calendar year and the names and addresses of those third parties.
