  • Does EarnIn Comply with Strict Privacy Regulations (Like Banks Do)?

    Absolutely! Even though EarnIn is not a bank, EarnIn is subject to the same federal, state, and foreign privacy laws (as applicable) that banks located in the United States comply with. For instance, EarnIn complies with a federal privacy law called the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act (“GLBA”). The GLBA protects the Personal Information that financial institutions collect about their customers for the purpose of providing financial services (for personal or household use). For more information, please see our Short Privacy Notice. EarnIn also complies with state privacy laws, like the California Consumer Privacy Act (“CCPA”) as amended by the Consumer Privacy Rights Act (“CPRA”). The CCPA/CPRA protects the Personal Information companies (including financial institutions) collect about California residents for reasons other than providing financial services (such as marketing purposes, business to business transactions, employment purposes). If You are a California resident, Your CCPA rights are listed at the end of this Privacy Policy. Other states (like Colorado, Utah, Virginia, and Connecticut) have also adopted their own privacy laws, but those privacy laws explicitly exclude financial institutions from their scope of applicability.
