VII. Social Media Websites
VIII. Other Aggregation Websites
Other companies offer aggregation websites and services that allow You to consolidate Your financial account information from different sources (such as Your accounts with us or with other financial institutions) so that You can view all of Your account information through one online location. To do this, an aggregation provider may request access to Your personal information, such as financial information, user IDs and passwords. You should use caution and ensure that the aggregator company has appropriate policies and practices in place to protect the privacy and security of any information You provide or to which they are gaining access. We are not responsible for the use or disclosure of any personal information accessed by any company or person to whom You provide Your user ID and password.
If You provide Your Paradigm Direct user ID, password or other information about Your accounts with us to an aggregation website, we will consider that You have authorized all transactions initiated by an aggregation website using access information You provide, whether or not You were aware of a specific transaction. If You decide to revoke the authority You have given an aggregation website, we strongly recommend that You change Your password for our website to ensure that the aggregation provider cannot continue to access Your account.
