        1.        Information You provide.   We collect various categories of Your information that You provide, either directly or indirectly, to us, such as:

  •         Identifying information, such as Your mobile telephone number, email address, and residential address;
  •         Financial information, such as information You provide on an application to us or from data we collect from transactions you conduct using the Services; and
  •         Information about Your status or personal characteristics, such as whether You are employed, where You do or could work, and the number of days You work in a month.

When You connect one or more of Your accounts with other financial institutions to the Rain App or to your Rain Account, we also may collect information to identify You, or to help verify that You are the true owner of the account(s), before connecting Your account(s).  

        2.        Information received from your devices.  When You use your device to connect to the Services, we receive information about that device, including IP address, hardware model, operating system, and other technical information about the device.  Rain reserves the right to capture cookies or similar tracking technologies to collect usage statistics and to help us provide and improve the Services.  

        3.        Information collected from Your financial institutions.  Whether Rain collects or maintains Your information collected from the financial institutions You use, such as Your Bank (as that term is defined in the Agreement), may depend on how You use the Rain App or the Services.  Generally speaking, when You link Your Primary Bank Account to the Rain App or to the Services (such as for EFT services), we may collect several categories of Your information, including:

        4.        Information we receive about You from other sources.  Rain also collects, directly or indirectly, Your information from other sources or persons, such as from persons that act as Rain’s service providers.  For example, Rain may collect and maintain Your information from service providers that help Rain to identify You and to verify that You are the individual who is authorized to use the Services.

We use the information we collect to operate, improve, and protect the services we provide, and to develop new services.  For example, we use Your information:

  •         To investigate any misuse of the Rain App or of the Services; and
  •         To develop new services.

Our Steps to Protect Your Information

We take steps designed to protect Your information that we collect, maintain, or disclose. These steps include maintaining information security controls, such as encryption technologies when transferring data or when storing data, firewalls, and controls over the physical access to our systems.  We evaluate the security controls that we use, as well as the controls that our service providers use, for protecting the security and confidentiality of Your information.  Our goal is to maintain effective security controls, as measured by relevant industry standards or by independent security auditors, for all of the ways that You can use the Services and other financial products and services provided by Rain.

Rain may keep Your information for as long as necessary to fulfill the purposes for the information is collected.  In addition, for some types of Your information, Rain may apply a longer retention period, such as for research or statistical analyses, except when storing or using that information for longer periods of time is not permitted under applicable law.  As permitted under applicable law, even after You stop using the Rain App or terminate your account with Rain, we may retain Your information.
