This Privacy Policy describes AdvicePay’s Web site privacy practices in relation to the use of the Company’s platform and the related applications and services offered by AdvicePay (the “Services”).

Information We Collect

AdvicePay collects and receives information in various ways including personal data and cookie data.

Personal Data

Personal data means data about an individual who can be identified from those data (or from those and other information either in our possession or likely to come into our possession). When registering, or expressing an interest in obtaining additional information about the Services, AdvicePay may require you to provide the Company with personal contact information, such as name, company name, address, phone number, and email address (“Contact Data”). When purchasing the Services, AdvicePay requires you to provide the Company with financial qualifications and billing information, such as billing name, billing address, and credit card number (“Billing Information”). Contact Data and Billing Information together are referred to collectively as “Data About Customers”. When the Customer’s clients (the “Clients”) signup for the Services, AdvicePay requires the Client to provide their name and email address (“Client Information”).

Use of Data Collected

The Company uses Data About Customers to perform the requested services. For example, if you fill out a Web form so that Company may contact you, the Company will use the information provided to contact you about your interest in the Services. The Company may also use Data About Customers for promotional or marketing purposes. For example, the Company may use information you provide to contact you to further discuss your interest in the Services and to send you information regarding the Company and its partners, such as information about promotions or events. The company uses Client Information to perform the requested services on behalf of the Customer and Client.

Sharing of Data

AdvicePay may share Data About Customers and Client Information with the Company’s contracted service providers so that these service providers can provide services on our behalf. Unless described in this Privacy Policy, AdvicePay does not share, sell, rent, or trade any information provided with third parties for their promotional or marketing purposes. The Company may share Data About Customers with other companies in order to work with them, including affiliates. For example, the Company may need to share Data About Customers for customer relationship management purposes. From time to time, AdvicePay may partner with other companies to jointly offer products or services. If you purchase or specifically express interest in a jointly-offered product or service from AdvicePay, the Company may share Data About Customers collected in connection with your purchase or expression of interest with our joint promotion partner(s). AdvicePay does not control our business partners’ (“Third Parties use of the Data About Customers or Client Information that a business partner collects, and their use of the information will be in accordance with the business partner’s own privacy policies. If you do not wish for your information to be shared in this manner, you may opt not to purchase or specifically express interest in a jointly offered product or service. AdvicePay uses a third-party service provider to manage credit card and ACH processing. These service providers are not permitted to store, retain, or use Billing Information or Client Information except for the sole purpose of credit card and ACH processing on the Company’s behalf. AdvicePay reserves the right to use or disclose information provided if required by law or if the Company reasonably believes that use or disclosure is necessary to protect the Company’s rights and/or to comply with a judicial proceeding, court order, or legal process.

Data Retention

AdvicePay retains Data About Customers and Client Information for as long as the Company provides the Services to a Customer or Client.

Cookie Data

Google Analytics

AdvicePay uses Adwords and Remarketing Lists features of Google Analytics for marketing purposes. AdvicePay and Google use first-party cookies (such as the Google Analytics cookie) to inform, optimize, and serve ads based on your past visits to our Site. This means that vendors including Google will display AdvicePay promotional material on other sites you visit across the internet.

You may opt-out of Google Analytics for display advertisers including AdWords and opt-out of customized Google Display Network ads by visiting the Google Ads Preferences Manager. To provide website visitors more choice on how their data is collected by Google Analytics, Google has developed an Opt-out Browser add-on, which is available by visiting Google Analytics Opt-out Browser Add-on, to enable you to opt-out of Google’s programs.

Cookies are used to collect information about your visit to our website, the content you have viewed, the links you have followed, and information about your browser and device. For integrations with third parties session tokens are stored within cookies.

Third Parties Service Providers

This Privacy Policy does not apply to any third party service providers that provide services to the Company as part of the Company’s business operations or the Company’s Services. AdvicePay in providing the Service interacts with third parties in the categories of “Third Party Application Services” and “Third Party Hosting Services”.

Third Party Application Services

AdvicePay enables its Customers to use “Third Party Application Services” as part of the AdvicePay Services. When the Customer or Client shares information with these Third Party Application Services, the privacy statement of the third party applies.

Third Party Hosting Services

AdvicePay engages with certain third-party services and solutions providers for cloud hosting services (“Third Party Hosting Services”). These Third Party Hosting Services provide services including but not limited to email, data storage, CRM, marketing, or communication. AdvicePay enters into legally binding agreements with Third Party Hosting Services as well as performing annual vendor management due diligence of those Third Party Hosting Services.

Third Party Links

AdvicePay’s Web sites may contain links to other Web sites. The information practices or content of such other Web sites is governed by the privacy statements of such other Web sites.

Communication Preferences and Opting Out

AdvicePay offers Customers, Clients, and Visitors who provide contact information a means to choose how the Company uses the information provided. You may manage your receipt of marketing and non-transactional communications by clicking on the “unsubscribe” link located on the bottom of the Company’s marketing emails. Additionally, you may send a request specifying your communications preferences to the email address indicated in Company’s term of use. Customers and Clients cannot opt out of receiving transactional emails related to their account with AdvicePay or the Services.

Minors

AdvicePay Services are not available to advisers under the age of eighteen (18), and therefore the Company restricts the collection of Data About Customers that are under the age of eighteen as part of the Services. Clients under the age of eighteen (18) are not allowed to enter into an advisory agreement with an advisor (Customer) and therefore the AdvicePay does not provide services to Clients under the age of eighteen (18).

Security

AdvicePay takes the security of customer data seriously. AdvicePay implements the appropriate measures based on the sensitivity of Customer and Client information that the Company collects, stores, and processes. No information system is impenetrable and therefore AdvicePay cannot guarantee 100% security of data during transmission and storage. If you believe that your AdvicePay account has been compromised or if your personal data has been compromised outside of AdvicePay please Contact Us immediately.

International

AdvicePay does not provide the Services outside of the United States.

Changes To This Privacy Policy

AdvicePay reserves the right to change this Privacy Statement. AdvicePay will provide notification of the material changes to this Privacy Statement through the Company’s Web sites at least thirty (30) business days prior to the change taking effect.
