Personal Information Received From the EU: Strands Labs, Inc. ("Strands") owns and operates the moneyStrands site ("Site"). Strands collects information on the Site at three different stages. First, we collect anonymous, aggregate information (such as domain name or IP address) from all visitors to the Site. This type of information is typically not linked to any personally identifiable information and is used primarily in the aggregate to generate statistical reports about the use of our Site.
Second, we require the submission of a valid e-mail address, user name, user-generated password, date of birth, and zip code when registering to use the services available on the Site. After registering for the Site, users may optionally supply additional demographic information that will enhance their usage of the Site.
Third, to use moneyStrands, users may give Strands the ability to retrieve various financial transaction data, using the usernames and passwords for online financial and other accounts and records ("Access Information"). The kinds of data collected using the Access Information may include bank account data, mortgage, student loan, and other loan data, data on credit card debt, spending patterns and the like.
Strands will not store users' Access Information (except for certain kinds of less sensitive data such as telephone or electric service accounts) longer than necessary to supply the information to our secure service provider. When a user registers an account on the moneyStrands Site, we supply their Access Information directly to a third party service provider, which uses the Access Information to retrieve the account data and send it to Strands. Our provider is required to adhere to strict privacy and security standards by its contracts with us and by applicable law. Neither we, nor our provider, will use the Access Information except to create and/or update your profile on moneyStrands. Users' Site profiles will be updated automatically. moneyStrands can not be used to withdraw or transfer funds from any account.
When joining a group (a ‘tag’) on our site, data that is entered will be combined with the rest of the tag’s data and disclosed to the tag members in aggregated form. The combined data is not revealed to the tag until a sufficient number of people have joined the tag to ensure that data will not be individually identifiable. Users may remove themselves and their data from a tag at any time. If users remove themselves from all tags then their data will not be averaged with community data, but they may still browse the Site.
If a user accesses our service via cell phone and/or web portal, we store the SMS/MMS content as well as information relayed to us by third party providers, such as encrypted cell phone numbers, the time the message was sent and the name of the mobile operator. Strands uses this data to allow users to participate using a mobile device and to enhance their community experience.
If users utilize a bulletin board or blog on this Site, they should be aware that any personally identifiable information submitted can be read, collected, or used by other users of these forums, and could be used to send them unsolicited messages. We are not responsible for the personally identifiable information users choose to submit in these forums.
