This information is gathered from all users, and may be connected with other information about you.
Aggregated Service Data
In an ongoing effort to better understand and service Payactiv’s customers, at times Payactiv conducts research on its customer demographics, interests and behavior based on the personal information and other information provided to us. This research may be compiled and analyzed on an aggregate basis and Payactiv may share this aggregate data with its affiliates, agents, and business partners. This aggregate information does not identify you personally and is not considered to be personal information.
When and How We Share Information with Others
We share personal information with third parties who are facilitating the delivery of Services. These third parties, which may include financial institutions that process disbursements of funds or third-party web hosts, may have access to or process information about you as part of providing those services for us. Generally, we limit the information provided to these service providers to information that is reasonably necessary for them to perform their functions, and we require them to agree to maintain the confidentiality of such information. Such third parties must agree to use such personal data only for the purposes for which they have been engaged by Payactiv and they must either:
We may disclose information about you to your employer in order to enable us to verify your identify and otherwise provide the Service to you.

We may make certain aggregated, automatically-collected, or otherwise de-identified information available to third parties for various purposes, including: (i) compliance with various reporting obligations; (ii) for business or marketing purposes; or (iii) to assist such parties in understanding our users’ interests, habits, and usage patterns for certain programs, content, services, advertisements, promotions, and/or functionality available through the Service.

Security of Your Information

When you submit information to us, your information is protected both online and offline. Wherever we collect sensitive information, that information is encrypted and transmitted to us in a secure way. While we use encryption to protect sensitive information transmitted online, we also protect your information offline. The computers/servers in which we store personal information are kept in a secure environment. Only employees who need access to the information to perform a specific job (for example, in order to provide customer service) are granted access to personal information. In addition, we commit to taking appropriate disciplinary measures to enforce our employees’ privacy responsibilities.
Compromise of Personal Information
We only retain collected personal information for a limited period of time for as long as we need it to fulfill the purposes for which we have initially collected it, unless otherwise required by law.
All data in the Payactiv platform is retained for 7 years as required by law. A customer may request deletion of their data, but certain transaction information must be retained for legal purposes. After 7 years, personal information is deleted but certain non-specific transactional information is retained.
If you would like to inquire as to what, if any, of your personal information we have or request deletion of any personal information you have submitted to us, please contact us at compliance@Payactiv.com. In your request, please note you are writing about “personal information” in the subject or body of the email.
Payactiv does not knowingly collect personal information from children under the age of 13. If you are under the age of 13, please do not submit any personal information through the Services. If you have reason to believe that a child under the age of 13 has provided personal information to Payactiv through the Services, please contact us, and we will endeavor to delete that information from our databases.
