As your financial privacy is very important to us, this notice discusses Beyond Finance and its subsidiaries and affiliates’ (“Beyond”) privacy practices with respect to guarding the confidentiality and security of your personal information and the information you submit through this website.
What information does Beyond collect through its website?
We may collect personal information about you that you willingly provide to us for purposes of generating a free debt analysis. This information includes your name, address, email address, phone number, amount of unsecured debt and how you heard about us. Beyond wishes to convey to its users that the only type of communications that are sent out are service related emails that are in response to a user’s online inquiry requesting a free consultation. Users cannot opt out from receiving these service related emails. If your personally identifiable information changes, or if you no longer desire our service, you may contact us at the contact information provided at the end of this form to correct, update, delete or deactivate your personal information.
We reserve the right to disclose your personally identifiable information as required by law or when we believe that disclosure is necessary to protect our rights and/or comply with a judicial proceeding, court order, or legal process served on our web site..
We also may collect non-identifiable information. Our website automatically collects clickstream information about your visit. This can include the address of the website from which you originated before visiting our website, the pages you visit on our website, and the browser you use.
If you enroll in the program, we will collect additional personal information about you, including information about your debts, creditors, and financial condition.
How does Beyond use the information it collects?
Beyond uses Google Analytics reporting to gather non-identifiable information on visitors to our website. We do not facilitate the merging of personally-identifiable with non-personally-identifiable information previously collected from display advertising features that is based on the DoubleClick cookie unless we have robust notice of, and your prior affirmative (i.e. opt-in) consent to, that merger. We have implemented Google Analytics Demographics and Interest Reporting to gather information such as age, gender, and interests through our website. Beyond uses this information to further enhance our visitors’ experiences on our website and to support display advertising. Using the Ads Settings, visitors can opt-out of Google Analytics for Display Advertising and customize Google Display Network ads.
As necessary, we may share non-personal information with our trusted third party service providers, such as the corporations that manage or host our website, to perform services on our behalf. They typically use non-personal, anonymous information – like clickstream information regarding visit duration – that isn’t identifiable with a particular visitor to further improve the website.
We use persistent cookies. A persistent cookie remains on your hard drive for an extended period of time. You can remove persistent cookies by following directions provided in your Internet browser’s “help” file.
We set persistent cookies to track and target the interests of our users to enhance the experience on our site. If you reject cookies, you will not have any difficulties using our site.
Does Beyond have safeguards in place to protect my personal information?
We restrict access to your personal information only to those employees who need to know that information to service and maintain your account with us. We also maintain physical, electronic and procedural safeguards that comply with federal requirements to guard your personal information.
