  1. Browser-Based Information. We use “cookies,” “pixel tags,” “web beacons,” and other technologies to collect information about your use of the Site.

4. COOKIE POLICY

Like most websites and apps, we use cookies. By using the Pebble website and/or app, you agree to our use of cookies as described in this Cookie Policy.

Cookies help us remember your preferences by keeping track of how many times you’ve visited 

our Site, how long you’ve spent there, and what you’ve done. We use Session Cookies to improve the Site and better serve you by understanding where you spend your time and which Services are most and least effective. We use Persistent Cookies to recognize you when you return to our Site so that we can customize your experience. The information collected in cookies is generally stored for between a few minutes and two years.

We use third-party cookies to determine whether advertisements that we run encourage more people to visit our website. Third-party cookies work by sharing your browser identification with the third party (like Facebook or Instagram) so that they can show you ads on their sites. Third-party cookies can be session-specific or persistent.

Cookies never store any of your banking or card details.

You can always turn off cookies, usually in your browser or device settings. If you turn off cookies, you might still see ads for Pebble in other places. These ads will be general, not targeted based on your specific information.

5. HOW WE USE YOUR INFORMATION

We collect and process your information for a number of reasons, including:

5.1 To provide you with the Services.  We cannot provide the Services to you without collecting certain personal and financial information. For example, in order for you to complete certain transactions between your bank account and your Pebble mobile application, we need to gather information related to your bank and that transaction.

5.2 To personalize your experience with the Services. We use data about your identity, location, and preferences to deliver notifications and communications relevant to you, customize aspects of the Services to you, and connect you with people you may already know that are using the Services.

5.3 To comply with legal requirements. Pebble is subject to various legal and regulatory compliance obligations that require us to verify your identity in connection with providing the Services. We use your data to prevent legal activities like money laundering, tax evasion, and fraud and to enforce our Terms of Use including Privacy Policy and Terms of Service, etc..

5.4 To keep your account secure. In order to make sure that only you can access your account and to prevent fraudulent transactions, we need to verify your identity and your security credentials during log-in and in connection with completing certain transactions.

5.5 To provide you with customer support. In order to communicate with you and troubleshoot any potential issues or answer any questions you might have, we need to be able to access certain information that you provide to us or that we collect through your use of the Site and the Services. We also use your information to contact you to ask your opinions about the Services so that we can improve them.

5.6 To improve Pebble. In order to improve the Services that we provide, we need to know what is working (and what isn’t) so that we can use your feedback and that of other customers to make changes. Your information helps us ensure internal quality control, develop new Services, market them through our website, mobile app, email, or other means, maintain existing accounts, perform general account administration purposes and enforce our Terms of Service.

6. HOW WE SHARE YOUR INFORMATION

Pebble will never sell your personal information to a third party without your permission.  We only share your information with third parties where we have a legitimate need to do so in order to provide you with the Services.  We will only share your information with the following:

6.1 Identity & Payment Processors. We work with third parties to verify your identity and to process transactions within your Pebble account. These third parties can include card producers and networks, credit reference agencies, and Know Your Customer and cybersecurity service providers.  For example, you may use Plaid, Inc. (“Plaid”), Prime Trust, LLC (“Prime Trust”), or other Third-Party Providers to connect your Pebble account to your bank account, verify your bank account, and confirm balance details. Any information that is shared with our third-party providers is treated in accordance with their Privacy Policy. These current policies can be found below:

6.2 Custody Partners.  Pebble partners with third parties to provide secure custody of your account balance. In addition to you directly agreeing to any terms and conditions from such partners, Pebble may need to share certain account information with such third parties to verify and process transactions within your account.

6.3 Service Providers.  We contract with certain trusted third-party consultants and vendors as part of our business operations. Our agreements with these third parties require them to only use your information in connection with the Services and to protect your information. These third parties include cloud storage providers, information technology firms, customer support software providers, and marketing partners. We won’t share identifying personal data with third parties for their own direct marketing unless you give us permission, and you can opt out at any time.

6.4 Professional Advisors.  We may need to share your information with legal, accounting, compliance, insurance, and other professional advisors in order to comply with our legal obligations and business requirements.

6.5 Potential Acquirers.  In connection with, or in anticipation of, any sale, merger, financing or acquisition of Pebble, we may need to share information as part of such process.

6.6 Regulators or Legal Action.  In connection with a valid legal request, to prevent fraud, to detect and prevent terrorism, and to protect our legal interests we may be required to share your information.

6.7 Other. We may otherwise share your information if you give us permission or instruction to do so.

7. HOW LONG WE KEEP YOUR INFORMATION

We keep your personal information for as long as you are using Pebble and for six (6) years after that to comply with legal requirements. In some circumstances, such as cases of money laundering or fraud, we may keep data longer if necessary or required by law.

8. HOW WE PROTECT YOUR INFORMATION

Pebble has implemented measures intended to secure your information from accidental loss and from unauthorized access, use, alteration, and disclosure. When you enter sensitive information, such as a debit card number or bank information, we encrypt the transmission of that information using secure socket layer technology (SSL). In addition, we limit access to your data to those employees, agents, contractors and other third parties who have a business need to know. They will only process your personal data on our instructions, and they are subject to a duty of confidentiality.

You also play an important role in maintaining the safety and security of your information. Where we have given you access credentials, such as a username and password, you are responsible for keeping these credentials confidential. You may also opt to enable multi-factor authentication. Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the Internet is not completely secure, and no company, including Pebble, can fully eliminate security risks. Although we have taken appropriate security measures to prevent your data from being accidentally lost, used or accessed in an unauthorized way, altered or disclosed, we cannot guarantee the security of your information transmitted to or from us, including via email, or the security of any links accessible from our Site.

You have a right to:

  1. Access the data we hold about you or get a copy of it. See “Access to Your Information” below for more information;
  2. Correct or amend the data that we hold about you;
  3. Ask us to delete, block, or suppress data we hold about you. For legal reasons, we may not always be able to fulfill such requests;
  4. Object to our use of your data for certain purposes, such as direct marketing or research;
  5. Request the transfer of your data to you or a third party; and
  6. Withdraw any consent you have previously given us.

9. THIRD PARTY SITES

The Sites may, from time to time, contain links to websites owned and operated by third parties (“Third-Party Sites”). We encourage you to review the privacy policies of such Third-Party Sites so that you understand how those websites collect, use, and share your information.  We are not responsible for the privacy notices, practices, or other content on Third-Party Sites. 

By using our Services, you grant certain Third-Party Sites the right, power, and authority to act on your behalf to access and transmit your personal and financial information from your relevant financial institution(s). You agree to your personal and financial information being transferred, stored, and processed by those Third-Party Sites in accordance with their privacy policies.

10. NON-U.S. SITE VISITORS

This Site is intended for use by residents of the United States of America only, and the Services are not available to all U.S. residents. Please see our prohibited Restricted Jurisdictions in Terms and Conditions (https://www.pebble.us/terms-conditions). You should be aware that the United States and other countries have not harmonized their privacy regulations. This Privacy Policy is intended to comply with United States requirements. By using the Site, you agree to the level of privacy protection set out in our Privacy Notice.

11. CHILDREN’S INFORMATION

Pebble does not knowingly collect personal information from any person under the age of 18.

12. ACCESS TO YOUR INFORMATION

You can update, modify, or delete personal information you’ve provided to us by emailing Pebble at support@pebble.us. We may retain certain information as required by law or for necessary business purposes.

California Civil Code Section 1798.83 permits Site users who are California residents to request and obtain from us a list of what Personal Information (if any) we disclosed to third parties for direct marketing purposes in the preceding calendar year and the names and addresses of those third parties. Requests may be made only once a year and are free of charge.

It is important to note that if you desire to update, modify or delete personal information that you have provide to us, we recommend that you also contact any third-party sites that you have linked to and provide information to directly under their privacy policies, as we do not control those third parties’ privacy practices and policies.
