Privacy Policy

Your privacy is important to us. This Privacy Policy explains how we collect, share, use, and protect information when you visit or use this online service and any other online services offered by Neu Money, Inc.

This Privacy Policy (“Policy”) describes the ways Neu Money, Inc. (referred herein as “Neu”, “we”, “us”, “our”) or our affiliates collect, protect, use, and store your personal information. You accept this Privacy Policy by using our products and services (collectively “Services”) on our App or through our website: https://www.neumoney.app (the “Site”) or any other means. We may amend this Policy at any time by posting a revised version on our website.

As you review this Privacy Policy, here are a few general principles to keep in mind:

  • Our online services are not intended for children under 18. We do not knowingly collect personal information from children under 18.
  • If you have a financial product or service with us, we will use and share any information that we collect from or about you in accordance with our Privacy Notice, which is available at Privacy Notice. Our Privacy Notice explains how we collect, use and share information about you and offers you certain choices with respect to the use and sharing of your personal information.
  • If you have questions after reviewing this policy, please contact us at 1-844-638-3425.

By using the Services, you are consenting to our processing of your personal information and data as set forth in this Policy. As used herein, “processing” means using or accessing information in any way, including but not limited to collecting, storing, deleting, combining, and disclosing information. Our servers are located in the United States and the Services are intended for a U.S. audience. Accordingly, if you reside outside the U.S., by using the Services, you acknowledge and agree that your personal information will be transferred to the United States and processed and stored in the United States. By using the Services, you understand that your information may be transferred to our facilities and those third parties with whom we share it as described in this Policy.

The Services contain links to other websites. The fact that we link to a website is not an endorsement, authorization, or representation of our affiliation with that third party. We do not exercise control over third party websites. These other websites may place their own cookies or other files on your computer, collect data, or solicit personally identifiable information from you. Other sites follow different rules regarding the use or disclosure of the personally identifiable information you submit to them. We encourage you to read the privacy policies or statements of every website you visit.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT PROCEDURES FOR OPENING A NEW ACCOUNT

Federal law requires all financial institutions to obtain, verify, and record information that identifies each person who opens an account. What this means for you: when you open an account, we will ask for your name, address, date of birth, and other information that will allow us to identify you. We may also ask to see your driver’s license or other identifying documents.

Personal information that we may collect in such instances may include your full name, email address, mailing address, telephone number, date of birth and other information that you provide us with as part of the credit card application.

We may also ask our users to generate a new personal identification number (PIN) or password to access the Services. In general, we may use any information provided by you to verify your identity or as part of a credit application or other business processes.

Information Neu Learns From Your Use of the Services or Access of the Site

When you visit the Site or use the Services, we may collect information from your computer, mobile phone, or similar device. This information may include your IP address and device information including but not limited to identifier, device name and type, operating system, location, mobile network information, and standard web log information such as your browser type, traffic to and from our website, the pages you accessed on our website, and any other available information. We may also collect information about your use of and interaction with the Site, application, or Services. For example, we may evaluate your computer, mobile phone, or other access device for indicators of fraud, or analyze your website clicks to assess your interest in our specific product terms. When you use the Services, we may also store information based on your usage history. This includes but is not limited to details of your purchases, content you viewed, event information, referring sites or click stream information, and web “cookies” or “tokens” that may uniquely identify your browser, device, or account. We may also collect information about you from any contact you have with any of our employees, our customer support team, or through surveys, or through interactions with our agents and/or affiliates.

Location Data

Neumoney.app may receive varying degrees of location information from Social Media Services (as defined below) that you enable within the Services and also (with your permission) from your computing devices (“Location Data”). For example, we may collect and use location data (e.g., GPS or IP-based geography detection) to screen for fraudulent activity or to verify self- reported information (for example, to verify you reside in a certain city or near a university in which you are enrolled) and to customize the Service to make it more relevant to you (for example, to send newsletter information that may be of interest to you).

Server Log Data

When you interact with the Site or use the Services, our servers automatically receive and store certain non-personally identifiable information (“Log Data”). This Log Data is collected passively and may include (but is not limited to) information such as your IP address, browser type, mobile phone type, software settings/configurations, or the domain from which you are visiting, the Site pages you visit, the search terms you use, and any advertisements on which you click. We use Log Data and analytics-based observations to provide you with the Services (for example, to send an SMS to your mobile device) and we may pool Log Data with other information to monitor the use of the Services, and for the technical administration of the Services. If we are asked to comply with a subpoena or other legal demand or where we suspect that there has been a violation of our policies, then we will associate your IP address with any other Personal Information to identify you personally, according to our Terms of Use and/or applicable laws.

Cookies and Anonymous Identifiers

Like many websites and services, we also may use “cookie” technology to collect additional Site usage data and to improve the Site and Services and related offers. A cookie is a small data file that we transfer to your computer or mobile phone. Neu may use both session cookies and persistent cookies (known as “persistent tokens”) to better understand how you interact with the Site and the Services, to monitor aggregate usage by our users and web traffic routing on the Site, and to improve the Site and the Services. A session cookie or security token enables certain features of the Site and Services and is often (but not always) deleted from your computer when you disconnect from or leave the Site. A persistent token will likely remain after you close your browser and may be used by your browser on subsequent visits to the Site. Persistent tokens can be removed by following your web browser help file directions. Most Internet browsers automatically accept cookies. You can instruct your browser, by editing its options, to stop accepting cookies or to prompt you before accepting a cookie from the websites you visit.

We may, or our partners or affiliates may, also deliver a file (known as a “web beacon”) from an ad network to you through the Services. Web beacons allow ad networks (and other websites) to provide anonymized, aggregated auditing, research, and reporting for us and for advertisers. Web beacons also enable ad networks to send targeted advertisements to you when you visit other websites. Because your web browser must request these advertisements and web beacons from the ad network’s servers, these companies can view, edit, or set their own cookies, just as if you had requested a web page from their sites.

Payment Information

When you make payments through the Services, we or i2c, our third party payment processor, may collect information related to your payments, such as your payment method, account number, type, or expiration date. The use and storage of such information is governed by this Privacy Policy and i2c’s privacy policy, available at http://www.i2cinc.com/privacy-policy

Bank Access/Login Credentials

Prior to establishing a Neu account or after a Neu account is established, or both, we invite Neu account holders to enter certain login credentials (such as a username and password) for certain online account types (for example, credit cards, debit cards, or traditional bank accounts) in order to verify identity and/or process payment. These credentials provide Neu with consistent and reliable access to each financial account. Neu uses such access to monitor and assess account holder’s ability to repay debt or counter fraud.

Contacts Information

If you allow Neu to access the contacts/address book on your phone or other services (such as email) through the permission system used by your mobile platform, Neu may access and store names and other contact information from your address book to facilitate social interactions through the Services and execute our share program. Access to contacts may be requested as part of a customer share program or validation of self-reported information.

Aggregated Personal Data

In an ongoing effort to better understand and serve the users of the Services, Neu often conducts research on our customer demographics, interests, and behavior based on the information provided to us. This research may be compiled and analyzed on an aggregate basis and Neu may share this aggregated data with our marketing affiliates, agents, and business partners. This aggregated information does not identify you personally. Neu may also disclose aggregated user statistics in order to describe the Services to current and prospective business partners and to other third parties for other lawful purposes.

Information Obtained From Third Parties

We may obtain information about you from third parties such as credit bureaus, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, student enrolment verification services, and identity verification services. You may choose to provide us with access to certain personal information stored by third parties such as social media websites and services (“Social Media Services”) or banking websites. The information we have access to varies by site and is controlled by your privacy settings on that site and your authorization. By associating an account managed by a third party with your Neu account and authorizing Neu to have access to this information, you agree that Neu may collect, store, and use this information in accordance with this Policy.

Usage and Preference Information

We collect information regarding how you and other site visitors use and interact with the Services, including preferences expressed, and settings chosen. In some cases, we do this through the use of cookies, pixel tags, and similar technologies that create and maintain unique identifiers.

HOW NEU PROTECTS YOUR INFORMATION

Neu stores and processes your information while maintaining physical, electronic, and procedural safeguards of its Site and systems. We maintain physical security measures to guard against unauthorized access to systems and use electronic safeguards such as firewalls and data encryption. We authorize access to personal information only for those authorized employees with a business need to have access to personal information.

WHAT ARE YOUR PRIVACY OPTIONS Your Right to Opt Out

If you no longer wish to receive notifications (such as SMS or email messages) about the Services, you may change your notification preferences by emailing support@neumoney.app. Alternatively, you may be able to indicate your preference by logging into your Neu account and adjusting your preferences or by following the directions provided with the communication. Neu reserves the right to close your account should you opt out of the critical notices that are required to perform the Services.

You can review and edit your personal information at any time by logging in to your account on Neu’s App/Website or by contacting us at support@neumoney.app. You can also request to close your account with Neu by contacting us at 1-844-638-3425. If you close your Neu account, we will mark your account in our database as “Closed,” but will keep your account information in our database to comply with our legal obligations. This is necessary in order to deter fraud, by ensuring that persons who try to commit fraud will not be able to avoid detection simply by closing their account and opening a new account. If you close your account, your personally identifiable information will not be used by us for any further purposes, nor sold or shared with third parties, except as necessary to prevent fraud and assist law enforcement, as required by law or in accordance with this Privacy Policy.

Learn about State Laws

This Privacy Policy may not constitute your entire set of privacy rights, as these may vary from state to state. For example, California Civil Code Section § 1798.100 permits California residents who are users of the Site to request certain information regarding the disclosure of personal information to third parties for direct marketing purposes. To make such a request, please send an email to support@neumoney.app. To be certain of your privacy rights, you may wish to contact the agency in your state that is charged with overseeing consumer privacy rights.

Contacting Neu

Neu may update its Privacy Policy from time to time, and the updated policy will be posted on our Site and be effective immediately, unless otherwise stated. If you have questions or concerns regarding this Privacy Policy, please contact us at support@neumoney.app or call 1-844-638-3425.

Neu Money, Inc.
Attn: Privacy
1331 Union Avenue, Suite 1033
Memphis, TN 38104; or
Email us at support@neumoney.app
Call us at 1-844-638-3425

Only you or a person registered with the California Secretary of State that you authorize to act on your behalf, may make a verifiable consumer request related to your personal information.

You may only make a verifiable consumer request for access or data portability twice within a 12- month period. The verifiable consumer request must:

  • Provide sufficient information that allows us to reasonably verify you are the person about whom we collected personal information or an authorized representative.
  • Describe your request with sufficient detail that allows us to properly understand, evaluate, and respond to it.

We cannot respond to your request or provide you with personal information if we cannot verify your identity or authority to make the request and confirm the personal information relates to you. Making a verifiable consumer request does not require you to create an account with us. We will only use personal information provided in a verifiable consumer request to verify the requestor’s identity or authority to make the request.

Children’s Privacy

The Services are not intended for use by children. We do not knowingly collect personal information from children under the age of 13 years.

If you do not have an account with us, we will deliver our written response by mail or electronically, at your option. Any disclosures we provide will only cover the 12-month period preceding the verifiable consumer request’s receipt. The response we provide will also explain the reasons we cannot comply with a request, if applicable. For data portability requests, we will select a format to provide your personal information that is readily useable and should allow you to transmit the information from one entity to another entity without hindrance.

We do not charge a fee to process or respond to your verifiable consumer request unless it is excessive, repetitive, or manifestly unfounded. If we determine that the request warrants a fee, we will tell you why we made that decision and provide you with a cost estimate before completing your request.
