In some cases we may offer you third party products and services that can be accessed through AceMoney, or as part of a AceMoney service. We may collect information regarding your connection to and use of these products and services. These reports (including usage data) are sent to us to help us improve our products, to verify product or service functioning, to diagnose and correct problems, and to support our user base. These reports generally include information about: things like computer configuration, such as computer type or monitor resolution; application use, such as the features that you use most often or time spent on parts of our site; and other information that relates to usage patterns and third-party products and services that our users access through AceMoney. We may record IP address, browser type, and operating system and app version.

We may also utilize usage data to determine what AceMoney products and services we think you would like to be informed of. You are always free to opt out from any marketing communications from us by following the unsubscribe instructions in any marketing e-mail we send. We may share anonymous or de-identified usage information as described earlier.
