Information We Collect

When you interact with us through the Services, we may collect Personal Information and other information from you, as further described below:

Personal Information That You Provide Through the Services: We collect Personal Information from you when you provide such information, such as when you create an account (“Account”), complete and/or use one of our online forms, tools or content items, contact us with inquiries, respond to one of our surveys, or use certain Services. If you sign up for the Services, you will be asked to provide Personal Information such as your email address, first and last name, telephone number, banking information, and other information that identifies you. The Personal Information we collect is for the sole purpose of enhancing the experience of our Services. We do not collect citizenship, race, nationality, or other demographic data.

Information We Collect Automatically

Site Usage Information: vested may use a variety of technologies that passively or automatically collect information about how the Services are accessed and used, including your browser type, device type, operating system, application version, the pages served to you, the time you browse, preceding page views, and your use of particular features of the Services. This statistical data helps us understand what is interesting and relevant to customers of the Services so that we can best tailor our content to you.

Device Identifiers: vested also automatically collects IP address or other unique identifier for the computer, mobile device, technology or other device (collectively “Device”) you use to access the Services. A “Device Identifier” is a number that is automatically assigned to your Device when you access a web site or its servers, and our computers identify your Device by its Device Identifier. We may use a Device Identifier to, among other things, administer the Services, help diagnose problems with our servers, analyze trends, track customers' web page movements, monitor against theft and fraud, and gather broad demographic information for aggregate use. If you access the Services on a mobile Device, we may request access to settings and location information for similar purposes and to personalize your experience with the Services. Most mobile devices allow you to turn off location services or push notifications. Please note that if you choose not to provide us with your location information, you may not be able to use all of the features of the Services.

Session Trackers: In operating the Services, we may use cookies and similar session tracking technologies (“Session Trackers”). Session trackers help provide additional functionality to the Services, customize customers' experiences with the Services and help us analyze Services usage more accurately for research and product development purposes. We (including third parties that we work with) may place session trackers on your Device for security purposes, to facilitate navigation of the Services, and to personalize your experience while using our Services. If you would prefer not to accept Session Trackers when using the Services, follow the instructions provided by your website or mobile browser (usually located within the “Help”, “Tools” or “Edit” facility) to modify your Session Tracker settings. Please note that if you disable Session Trackers, you may not be able to access certain parts of our Services and other parts of our Services may not work properly. As a result, we recommend that you leave Session Trackers turned on when accessing the Services because they allow you to take advantage of some of the Services’ features.

Web Beacons: In addition to Session Trackers, we may use web beacons (also known as “clear GIFs”), which are transparent graphic images placed on a web page or in an email and indicate that a page or email has been viewed or tell your browser to get content from another server. We use web beacons to measure traffic to or from, or use of, our online forms, tools or content items and related browsing behavior and to improve your experience when using the Services. We may also use customized links or other similar technologies to track hyperlinks that you click and associate that information with your Personal Information in order to provide you with more focused communications.

Non-Personal Information: Additionally, we may modify and combine Personal Information in a manner that does not personally identify you or any other individual and thus, no longer constitutes “Personal Information”. We may use this non-Personal Information, such as aggregate customer statistics, demographic information, and usage information, for the purpose of enhancing the experience of our Services.

Information from Third Parties

We may receive information about you from third parties. For example, the Services may include features from social media platforms such as Facebook, and we may enable you to register or log-in to the Services through a social media platform. These features use Session Trackers to collect information about your IP address, and your use of the Services. Your interactions with those features are governed by the terms of use and privacy policies of the companies that provide them.

As another example, we use Plaid Technologies, Inc. (“Plaid”) to gather your data from financial institutions. By using the Services, you grant us and Plaid the right, power, and authority to act on your behalf to access and transmit your personal and financial information from the relevant financial institution. You agree to your personal and financial information being transferred, stored, and processed by Plaid in accordance with the Plaid Privacy Policy located at

We may also receive Personal Information about you from third parties, such as financial data vendors, your employer, or financial services companies with whom we’ve partnered, to evaluate your eligibility for an Account, to enhance our ability to tailor our services to you, or for other reasons. If we combine such data with information we collect through the Services, such information is subject to this Privacy Policy unless we have disclosed otherwise.
