We may collect the following types of information:
Information you provide – When you sign up for an account with RatesAndInfo.com, we ask you for personal information, and, if relevant, about the financial institution with which you work. We may combine the information you submit under your account with information from third parties in order to improve the quality of our services that are provided to the general public.
Log information – When you access RatesAndInfo.com services via a browser, application or other client our servers automatically record certain information. The server logs may include information such as your web request, your interaction with a service, Internet Protocol address, browser type, browser language, the date and time of your request and one or more cookies that may uniquely identify your browser or your account.
User communications – If you provide your email to RatesAndInfo.com, we may use your email address to communicate with you about our services and those or our affiliates and partners.
Location data – RatesAndInfo.com offers location-enabled services and our service is embedded with Google Maps to improve the user experience. RatesAndInfo.com may receive information about your actual location and we may use this information to track user trends and provide relevant ad selection.
At times, RatesAndInfo.com may use interest-based targeting to serve you relevant ads on the RatesAndInfo.com site or on other sites across the Internet. The targeting works by installing a cookie on your computer that records various non-personal, non-identifying information such as the pages you visited on the site, the type of browser you are using, the time you visited the site, and other sites that you visited after visiting RatesAndInfo. No personally identifiable information is collected. The information collected is then used to inform you of new offers, rate updates, and other relevant information about banking and investing products. You have the option of opting-out of interest-based advertising by visiting the Network Advertising Initiative website and following the directions on the page.
Once again, no personal information is collected or utilized and the data is used to provide you with ads that are more tailored to your interests.
In addition to the above, we reserve the right at any point in the future to use the information we collect to:
Provide, maintain, protect, and improve our services (including advertising services) and develop new services; and
Protect the rights or property of RatesAndInfo.com, our affiliates and partners and/or our users
If we use this information in a manner different than the purpose for which it was collected, then we will ask for your consent prior to such use.
