INFORMATION COLLECTION
• Information You Provide

We collect information from you when you choose to share it with us to access or use our websites and mobile applications (collectively, “Services”), request information from us, or otherwise contact us. The information we collect may include your name, address, email address, phone number, information about your payment at a retail location, financial account information used for payments, loads or direct deposits, and any other information you choose to provide. We may combine the information you provide to us with information (1) from and about you that we automatically collect when you use our services, (2) from third parties, or (3) from other online and offline services.

If you use certain features of our Services that involve location-based services (such as the ATM locator) or provide us with files that include location information, you may grant us access to information about your location. We use this information to (1) provide you with the services or products that you request, including access to location-based information, and (2) monitor for fraud or other suspicious activity.

• Information Automatically Collected; Online and Mobile Advertising; and California Do Not Track Disclosures

Information Automatically Collected: We may use cookies, pixel tags, local shared objects (Flash cookies), and other technologies for security and authentication purposes, to collect certain information when you visit and use our Services, to deliver online advertisements that we think would be more relevant to your interests, and to monitor interactions with our emails and online advertisements. For example, we may automatically collect certain non-personal information from you, including but not limited to your browser type and version, Flash version, operating system, Internet Protocol (“IP”) address, or other unique identifiers ("Device Identifier") for the computer or mobile or other device you use to access the Services (collectively, “Device”). A Device Identifier is a number that is automatically assigned to your Device when you access a website or its servers, and our system identifies your Device by its Device Identifier. In addition, we may collect information about your browsing behavior, such as the date and time you visit a website, the page served, the preceding page views, and your activity on our Services.

Online and Mobile Advertising and California Do Not Track Disclosures: Most Devices allow you to modify your browser or operating system settings to be notified when a cookie is set, to reject all cookies, or to limit tracking for advertising purposes. However, please be aware that some features and services on our Services may not function properly or may be slower if you refuse cookies. In addition, the offers we provide when you visit us may not be as relevant to you or tailored to your interests. You may occasionally get cookies from other third parties on our Services. We do not control these cookies. Note that our systems may not recognize Do Not Track (“DNT”) headers from some or all browsers.

On your mobile Device, you can adjust your privacy and advertising settings to control whether you want to receive more relevant advertising. For example, on iOS select “Settings” → “Privacy” → ”Advertising” to adjust your settings. On Android select “Google Settings” → “Ads” to adjust your settings.

SERVICE PROVIDERS

We may employ third parties to provide functions related to the Services (“Service Providers”). Service Providers will have access to your information to the extent necessary to perform their business functions, but we do not permit them to use the information for any other purpose.

INFORMATION DISCLOSURE

We may disclose the personal information we collect from and about you as follows: (1) to our Service Providers, if the disclosure will enable them to perform a business, professional or technical support function for us; (2) as necessary if we believe that there has been a violation of the Green Dot Site and Mobile Application Terms of Use or of our rights or the rights of any third party; (3) to respond to judicial process and provide information to law enforcement or regulatory agencies or in connection with an investigation on matters related to public safety, as permitted by law, or otherwise as required by law; and (4) as described to you at the point of collection.

We may share aggregate or anonymous non-personal information with third parties.

Also, we may sell or purchase assets during the normal course of our business. If another entity acquires us or any of our assets, information we have collected about you may be transferred to such entity. In addition, if any bankruptcy or reorganization proceeding is brought by or against us, such information may be considered an asset of ours and may be sold or transferred to third parties. Should such a sale or transfer occur, we will use reasonable efforts to try to require that the transferee use personal information provided through the Services in a manner that is consistent with this Privacy Statement.
