This Privacy Policy applies to information that Vaulted collects from applications submitted by both U.S. Mail, E-Mail, Telephonically and through our website. This site may be accessed in the United States and abroad.

Collection and Use of Your Personal Information
Vaulted is committed to protecting the personal information you provide to us. You will be required to provide certain personal information, such as your name, maiden name (if applicable), mailing address, e-mail address, phone number, birth date, and such other information that is required by Vaulted for the purpose of conducting our business and complying with US law. Vaulted is the sole owner of the information that is collected. The purpose of collecting this information from you is to provide you with an efficient and pleasant experience while using our services and to maintain accurate and up to date records. Additional personal information (e.g., your bank account information and billing address) is collected to process transactions or to provide you with products and services.

One way of linking your bank account with Vaulted is through Plaid Inc. (“Plaid”). If you choose to link a bank account with your Vaulted account through Plaid, Vaulted uses Plaid to verify your account details. By doing so, you grant Vaulted 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.

Use of Your Personal Information
Vaulted collects and uses your personal information to open accounts, process your transactions, to provide customer service, to perform research and analysis aimed at improving our products, services and technologies.

We also use your personal information to communicate with you. We may send transaction-related communications such as welcome letters, billing reminders, and purchase confirmations. We may also send you surveys or marketing communications to inform you of new products or services or other information that may be of interest.

Personal information collected by Vaulted may be stored and processed in the United States or any other country in which Vaulted or its affiliates, subsidiaries, contractors or agents maintain facilities, and by using our Site or services, you consent to any such transfer of information outside of your country. Vaulted abides by the safe harbor framework as set forth by the U.S. Department of Commerce regarding the collection, use, and retention of data from the European Union. If you would like to exercise any of your data protection rights (including the right to have your personal information deleted), please contact us directly.

Sharing of Your Personal Information
Except as disclosed in this privacy policy, Vaulted does not share your personal information with any outside parties. We may share your personal information within our corporate group, including with our subsidiaries and divisions, all of whom may use your information for the purposes disclosed herein.

We may share your personal information with service providers who perform services on our behalf. For example, we may hire other companies to handle the processing of payments, to provide data storage, to fulfill orders and shipments, to assist in direct marketing, to conduct audits, etc. Those companies will be permitted to obtain only the personal information they need to provide the service. They are required to maintain the confidentiality of the information and are prohibited from using it for any other purpose.

Information about our customers, including personal information, may be disclosed as part of any merger, acquisition, or sale of the company and/or its assets, as well as in the unlikely event of insolvency, bankruptcy, or receivership, in which personal information would be transferred as one of the business assets of the company. We will notify you of such an occurrence as described in the “Changes to This Privacy Policy” section below.

We reserve the right to disclose your personal information if required to do so by law, or in the good-faith belief that such action is reasonably necessary to comply with legal process, respond to claims, or protect the rights, property or safety of our company, employees, customers, or the public.
