Collection and Use of Personal Information
Allowance Manager’s business model presumes our services will be used by families to teach financial literacy to their children. AM operates with the expectation our subscribers are parents of children between ages 3-17. We collect the following personal information from subscribers to the Allowance Manager Junior and Premium subscriptions depending on the services being requested: gender, first name, last name, date of birth, and a parent’s email address. This information will be used to administer your Allowance Manager Account, contact the AM Admin or Account Owner when necessary, and identify you for use on the Site.
To participate in the Allowance Manager’s Premium Subscription Prepaid Card Program, the AM Admin will be required to provide additional personal identification before activation of requested AllowanceCard(s). This information will include the AM Admin’s social security number, date of birth, and residential address. No credit check is required. We do not collect further information on the Allowance Recipient. Information obtained for these purposes will only be used as explained in the AllowanceCard and AllowanceWallet agreements.
During the Junior or Premium Subscription registration process, AM Admins have the option to provide Allowance Recipient’s email addresses. If an email address is provided, Allowance Manager will send the Allowance Recipient a service-related “Weekly Statement of Account”. An AM Admin can stop this communication by removing the email address in the Settings section of the AM Admin Account.
