What We Collect
We collect information required to verify your identity, to determine whether or not you qualify for one of our advance products, and to process your account including deducting automatic payments. We collect information that includes your contact information including email address, demographic information such as address, bank statements, credit card statements, your average bank balance, personal and business credit history, tax ID number, social security number, bank account information and payment behavior. We may conduct a site visit to collect information. We also obtain your credit score from credit bureaus. Once you are a Wide Merchant Group customer, we may reach out to you for information again if you decide to renew your advance.
Security, Privacy and Sharing of Information
By providing us the required information as outlined above and in your application, you are granting Wide Merchant Group and our trusted business partners and service providers access to it. Wide Merchant Group takes the security of your information very seriously. In order to prevent unauthorized access or disclosure we have put in place suitable physical, electronic and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the information we collect online. Your information is held securely by Wide Merchant Group and our trusted partners. We will never sell your information. We may share your basic information (Name, Company Name, Phone, Email Address and Requested Advance Amount) with one of our business partners if we are unable to provide you with an advance. We may provide your information to our third party partners for marketing or promotional purposes. We may use the information to improve our products and services, and periodically send promotional email about new products, special offers or other information which we think you may find interesting using the email address which you have provided. If you allow Wide Merchant Group to see your banking information online rather than in paper form, it is on a read-only basis. We do not have access to change, edit, or modify bank account information in any way. Wide Merchant Group employees cannot view your banking username and passwords, and we securely store them in separate encrypted areas with our financial services providers.
If you believe that any information we are holding on you is incorrect or incomplete, please write to or email us as soon as possible, at the above address. We will promptly correct any information found to be incorrect.
