Applicable law requires us to provide users who subscribe to our service a description of our information collection and sharing practices. This Statement of Privacy Policy (“Privacy Policy”) specifically describes how we handle your personally identifiable information, and applies to financial products and services provided by CFO2.

The Deposit Exchange Inc.

The CFO2 Platform (the “Platform”) provides small business owners with analysis and insights of where their business is going, to make better business decisions today. Our small business customers determine what types of personal information about their business they will upload into the Platform, and this data may be deleted by our customers from our systems at any time. We require our customers to ensure that they are authorised to provide personal information to us in accordance with applicable privacy laws. We do not collect or use client personal information of our customers for any purpose other than to provide services on behalf of our customers.

CFO2 may collect and use the following information:

  • Sign up: If you sign up for the CFO2 Services, you may provide us with certain personal information about yourself, such as your name, address, phone number, and e-mail address. We use this information for the purpose of processing and responding to your sign up request.
  • CFO2 Services: In addition to the personal information set out above, you may provide us with personal financial information, such as account names and numbers, passwords, and PINs as part of registration for and usage of the CFO2 Services.

  • Service Provider Arrangements: In connection with our Website, Platform or other services we provide to our customers, we may transfer (or otherwise make available) personal information to third parties who provide services on our behalf. For example, we may use service providers to process payments, host our website and store information on our behalf. Our service providers are given the information they need to perform their designated functions, and we do not authorize them to use or disclose personal information for their own marketing or other purposes.Personal information may be maintained and processed by third party service providers in the US and Canada.
