  2. Information Collected

    In connection with your use of the Services, we collect three types of information about you: Business Information, User Information, and General Information. Information from any of these categories may be linked with other information that we collect about you.

Business Information includes, but is not limited to (i) business name, address, email, and telephone number, (ii) company structure, (iii) industry type, (iv) incorporation date, (v) annual revenue, (vi) bank account information, (vii) payment information (e.g., payment history, payment card number), (viii) accounting information (e.g., Quickbooks), and (ix) beneficial ownership information.

      In the U.S., federal law requires us to collect and verify beneficial ownership information of our Customers. We collect this information to protect the U.S. financial system from financial crimes like money laundering, tax evasion, corruption, and fraud. Requiring the disclosure of key individuals who ultimately own or control the business helps law enforcement investigate and prosecute financial crimes. We will collect and maintain beneficial ownership information in compliance with this Privacy Policy.
