We do not knowingly collect personally identifiable information from a child under the age of eighteen (18) without prior guardian consent.

We use Personal Information obtained from you to process our services. In the process, you must provide additional financial information such as credit card number, expiration date, wire transfer or account information. This information is used for billing purposes and to fulfill services.

We do not disclose any Personal Information to non-affiliated third parties, except as necessary for us to provide our services to you, or as permitted by law, (like giving you credit for rewards, carrying out a transaction you have requested, operating or managing our business, or responding to legal process).

We may disclose any Personal Information we collect with our affiliates, including for purposes of internal audit, management, billing or administrative purposes including defending and bringing legal actions.

We are concerned about identity theft and the practice currently known as "phishing". Our top priority is to protect you from identity theft.
