Terms of Service

Version 1.2

 

Agreement Heading:

This “Agreement” is between System Financial, Inc. (“we,” “our,” “us”) and you, the customer/user (“you,” “your”), and it governs use of the System and all related services. Downloading, installing, accessing, or using the System in any manner indicates that you agree to the terms and conditions of this Agreement and all related addendums, policies, statements, and amendments incorporated by reference herein.

 

Description of the Services:

The System is a service that reads the information provided to you by your financial and banking institutions in order to organize your financial situation in an automated manner. The System will suggest allotting certain amounts of your income to be used for recurring bills and obligations, savings, and discretionary investments. Other amounts of money will be allotted as guilt-free spending money. The System may suggest further organizational strategies that can be configured by you over the course of your use of the System. The System is accessed primarily through an app on your mobile device. The “Services” of the System include our website, any mobile applications, software, programs, documentation, tools, internet-based services, components, and any related updates (including software maintenance, service information, help content, bug fixes, or maintenance releases).

 

Requirements

In order to sign up for and use the Services, you must be 18 years old, and you must have an Apple mobile device running iOS 8.0 or higher. The System works best if you are a salaried worker - whether self-employed or otherwise - with a single income paid at regular intervals.

 

Access to Third Party Systems and Information:

By providing your account information for various financial and banking institutions, you agree to allow the System to read and analyze all information provided by such third-party institutions. This could include account balances, monthly or other periodic statements, investment decisions, interest rates, addresses, account numbers, social security numbers, and other forms of personally identifying information.

 

We use Plaid Technologies, Inc. (“Plaid”) to gather your data from financial institutions. By using our service, you grant us and Plaid the right, power, and authority to act on your behalf to access and transmit Your personal and financial information from the relevant financial institution. You agree to your personal and financial information being transferred, stored, and processed by Plaid in accordance with the Plaid Privacy Policy. (http://plaid.com/legal)
