This Privacy Policy describes the treatment of information provided by You or collected by EvenUp in connection with your use of the Website or the Application.

  • Information your computer or mobile device may automatically provide when You use the Website or Application, including location information either provided by a mobile device interacting with our Website (including through beacon technologies), or associated with your IP address.

  • Information your computer or mobile device may automatically provide when You use our Website or Application, including usage, viewing and technical data, and your device identifier or IP address.

Use of Your Information

EvenUp may use your information for the following purposes:

  • Provide You with the services through the Website and Application.
  • Communicate with You about your use of the Website or Application.
  • Improve EvenUp services.
  • Detect, investigate and prevent activities that may violate our policies or be illegal.

Data Security and Retention

As used in this Privacy Policy, "personally identifiable information" means information that identifies (whether directly or indirectly) a particular individual, such as the individual's name, email address, postal address, phone number, or other personal information.

EvenUp takes the security of all personally identifiable information very seriously. Accordingly, EvenUp has implemented security measures that are designed to protect your information from unauthorized access, disclosure, use and modification.

While no security measures are impenetrable, We take the following steps to secure the information collected, transferred, stored or processed by us:

  • Employ internal access controls to ensure that only personnel who have access to your information are those with a need to do so.
  • Train appropriate personnel on our privacy and security policies and compliance requirements.
  • Use technical controls to secure the information We collect, including Secure Socket Layer (SSL), encryption, firewalls, and password protections.
  • Employ external access safeguards to identify and prevent unauthorized access by outsiders that attempt to access or cause harm to the information contained in our systems.

We will retain your personally identifiable information only for the length of time needed to carry out the services provided through the Website and Application, unless a longer retention period is required by law.

Sharing Your Information

EvenUp will not share personally identifiable information it collects about You with other individuals and entities except in the following circumstances:

  • When sharing personally identifiable information is necessary to provide you with the services offered through the Website and Application (e.g., sharing your information with nonprofit organizations and third-party service providers).
  • When sharing personally identifiable information with third parties is necessary to ensure the safety and security of EvenUp and/or third parties, to protect EvenUp's rights and property and the rights and property of third parties, or to comply with legal process or in other cases if EvenUp believes in good faith that disclosure is required by law.

How Information is Collected

To carry out the services provided to you through the Website and the Application, EvenUp works with two third-party service providers: (1) Plaid, which is a service that enables you to have access to your bank accounts through the Website and Application, and (2) Stripe, which is a service that works directly with nonprofit organizations to transmit your donated spare change.

To use the services offered through the Website and Application, you may be required to provide information such as credit card and debit card numbers, bank account numbers, and/or your personal banking log-in credentials ("Banking Credentials"). Plaid is responsible for the collection and storage of your Banking Credentials. Accordingly, by using the Website or the Application, you also consent and agree to the legal terms and conditions and privacy policy of Plaid.

Plaid will not share Banking Credentials with us, but We may be able to view the transaction details for the credit or debit card or bank account associated with your User Account. We use these transaction details to calculate the amount that you will donate to the nonprofit organization of your choice.

When donations are processed, Stripe is responsible for the collection and storage of any Banking Credentials used in the transaction. Accordingly, by using the Website or the Application, you also consent and agree to the legal terms and conditions and privacy policy of Stripe.

EvenUp never receives, collects or stores your Banking Credentials

You are responsible for evaluating whether to consent to the legal terms and conditions and privacy policies of Plaid and Stripe. EvenUp is not responsible for any features, content, advertising, products, or other materials on other websites or applications, including the respective services of Plaid and Stripe. You assume all risk for, and EvenUp disclaims all liability arising from, your use of other websites and applications, including the respective services of Plaid and Stripe.

If you do not consent to the legal terms and conditions and privacy policies of Plaid and Stripe, you are expressly prohibited from using the Website or the Application and must terminate your use of the Website and Application immediately.

If You provide information to us through any third party, the information You provide may be separately collected by the third party. Only the information EvenUp receives or collects is covered by this Privacy Policy; information collected by a third party is subject to the privacy practices, if any, of the third party. Privacy choices You have made in your interactions with a third party will not apply to EvenUp's collection and use of the information.

In addition, We may collect information through technology, such as cookies, including when You use the Website or Application.
