What Personal Data do we collect?

Fresh2 only collects the Personal Data we need in order to offer and support our Service and meet our legal and regulatory obligations, which may vary depending on our relationship with you.

Here is an overview of the Personal Data we collect from or about you:

  • Identity verification data: To verify your identity, we may collect your name, address, ID numbers, date of birth, and other similar information. We may also require you to provide additional Personal Data for verification purposes, including a copy of your government-issued identification and a selfie photo. We may obtain information from affiliated and non-affiliated third parties, such as credit bureaus, identity verification services, and other screening services to verify that you are eligible to use our Services, and will associate that information with the information we collected from you. As part of our identity verification process, Fresh2 uses Acuant to verify your identity by determining whether a selfie you take matches the photo in your government-issued identification.
  • Financial data: In addition to identity verification, Fresh2 may collect various information regarding your finances and other financial information (including the bank information you provide us) in order to be able to perform, and better perform, the transactions you request on the platform. We also may collect this information to ensure compliance with regulatory requirements (e.g., anti-money laundering laws) and our own internal policies. In order for this to function, we must share certain elements of your Personal Data with these third parties. The information we receive, including information from third parties, may include accounts you hold, balances, transactions, and a risk score. When linking your existing bank account to the Fresh2 platform, users in certain jurisdictions may use third-party services including Plaid and Stripe to seamlessly link accounts, and in order to do so, information about your bank account is shared by such third-party providers with Fresh2. The collection and transfer of this information is also subject to privacy policies of our third party service providers.
  • Account activity data: We collect information about your transactions, payments from or to you, and your other activities on our site or Service and other details of products and services you have purchased from us.
  • Application use data: We may collect data on your interaction and use of our Service. This includes visits to our website or app, sign-up activity, your bank account, credit card, other payment details to enable you to enter into transactions on the Service, along with any additional information you may disclose to our user support team in order to resolve problems you report.
  • Your device data: We collect and process your internet protocol (IP) addresses, your login data, browser type and version, time zone setting and location, browser plug-in types and versions, operating system and platform and other technology on the devices you use to access this website or any of our software applications.
  • Marketing data: We collect and process your preferences in receiving marketing from us, your email address, including hashed identifiers derived from email addresses for the purposes of cross-device tracking for targeted advertising, and where you may have seen Fresh2 advertisements. 

How do we use your Personal Data, and on what legal basis do we collect your Personal Data?

Listed below are the ways in which we may use and process your Personal Data and the legal grounds we rely on to do so.

  • Providing our Service to you: It may sound obvious, but we need your data to make Fresh2 work in the first place. Without your name, banking information and other details, we simply could not offer you our products and services. In addition, we may store and use your data to make our product work better and quicker. For example, we may store your bank account information to make it easier for you to conduct future transactions with us without requiring you to re-enter your bank account information.
  • Fraud Prevention: We use the Personal Data we collect in connection with providing you our services to detect and prevent fraudulent activity. We share this information with Acuant, a third party service provider, to assist us with this effort. Acuant uses various technologies to capture various device identifiers, such as canvas fingerprinting and may use automated decision making in order to detect and prevent fraudulent activity. To learn more about Acuant, please see their Service Privacy Notice. 
  • Account Security: We use your phone number for our account two-factor authentication process.  This includes sending SMS or text messages (including by an automatic telephone dialing system) to any of the phone numbers provided by you or on your behalf in connection with your Fresh2 account.
  • Keeping you informed: It is important for security and financial transparency that we keep you aware of your transactions and related activity at Fresh2. We will send you emails with confirmations, invoices, technical notices, updates, security alerts, legal and support and administrative messages.
  • Investigations: Occasionally, we need to look at your account activity in order to check and protect against fraudulent, unauthorized or illegal behavior.
  • Customer care: We strive to make sure you can easily use our products with no headaches, but sometimes you need help. Our customer care team will occasionally need access to your account data in order to fix any issues or answer your questions.
  • Managing and improving our Service: We like to understand how our users engage and use Fresh2 in order to make sure Fresh2 is the best it can be. This process includes combining different account, transactional, marketing and other data to analyze the effectiveness and performance of our Service.
  • Behavioral Advertising and Analytics: This process includes combining different account, transactional, marketing, and cross-device tracking. When we apply these techniques we may use your Personal Data to provide you with targeted advertisements or marketing communications we believe may be of interest to you. We may also use information from your mobile device, such as: browser type, device type and model, CPU, system language, memory, OS version, Wi-Fi status, time stamp and zone, device motion parameters and carrier for advanced attribution and analytical purposes including personalized or lookalike advertising.

Information collected by these applications or third-party integrations are subject to their terms and policies and are required by contract by Fresh2 to maintain the confidentiality and security of your Personal Data.

The primary legal grounds upon which we collect and process your Personal Data are: 

  • through obtaining your consent at the time of collection, 
  • due to the necessity of doing so to perform the services as requested, 
  • in order to comply with our legal obligations, and
  • to pursue our legitimate interests (e.g., to improve our services).

We require that those third parties agree to keep this information confidential and secure on the same conditions and protection levels we provide to you as a user, in accordance with relevant privacy laws.

We may also release your information to certified and authorized law enforcement officials when we believe release is appropriate to comply with the law, enforce our terms or policies, or protect the rights, property, or safety of Fresh2, our users, or others. We have a set of guidelines for how we engage with law enforcement officials that are available to the public here.
