Rights Afforded to California Residents

California Civil Code § 1798.83 (California’s Shine the Light Act) permits California residents to request certain information regarding our disclosure of personal information to third parties for their direct marketing purposes. If you are a California resident, you may ask us to refrain from sharing your personal information with certain of our affiliates and other third parties for their marketing purposes. Please tell us your preference by contacting us at the contact information below. 

Notice for Nevada Residents

Under Nevada law, Nevada “consumers” may request that “operators” of internet sites and online services refrain from the “sale” of their “covered information” to third parties (as such terms are defined under Nevada law).  “Covered information” includes first and last name, address, email address, and phone number, or an identifier that allows a specific person to be contacted either physically or online.  As discussed above, we share your information with certain third parties that we believe can provide you with offers and promotions for products and services of interest to you and in the other ways described above.  We do not believe that our sharing in this regard would qualify as a sale under Nevada law. 

Protection of Your Information

We use appropriate administrative, technical, and physical measures to protect your personal information from loss, theft, and unauthorized use, disclosure, or modification. Please be aware that no data transmission over the Internet is 100% secure. While we strive to protect your personal information, we cannot ensure or warranty the security of any information you transmit to us and you do so at your own risk. 

Links to Third-Party Websites

Our Services may contain links to third-party websites. Such websites have separate privacy policies that you should review. We cannot take responsibility for the content of linked websites or those companies’ data-handling practices.

Children’s Privacy

Our Services are general audience websites and applications and are not directed at children under the age of 13. Accordingly, we do not knowingly collect personal information from children under age 13 through the Services. Should we discover that a child under age 13 provided us with personal information, we will use that information only to inform the child that we must have parental consent before receiving such information. 

International Transfers

Banana Pay is headquartered in the United States and, as a result, the information you provide to us may reside on servers or workstations located the United States.  You understand and consent that information you provide may be transferred to the United States.  You also understand that the data protection laws in the United States may be different from those of the country where you reside.  When we transfer personal information to the United States, we will implement appropriate and suitable safeguards to protect such information as may be required by applicable data protection laws.

Changes to this Policy

Please note that we may change this Policy from time to time. If there are changes to our Policy, we will post them here and update the “Last Updated” date at the top of this document. Continued use of the Services after any changes is deemed to be acceptance of those changes. Accordingly, we encourage you to check the Policy periodically for updates.
