At Tink, our purpose is to change the banking industry for the better. Over the years, we have built one of the most robust open banking platforms, which enables our business customers to build products that leverage financial information or allow users to make payments. Respecting your privacy is central to our purpose. Tink has a Global Privacy Program to help ensure your information is handled properly, and your personal information is protected. Our Privacy Program reflects the sensitivity of the personal, financial, and other information we handle. It also reflects the requirements of the privacy laws in all the countries and states where Tink operates.
As a global company, Tink fulfills many roles. When we act as a service provider for Tink customers, we only collect and use personal information as authorized by our contracts with our customers. If you have questions about how these companies handle your personal information, or wish to exercise your rights, please contact them directly.
This Privacy Notice applies if you visit our websites, when you submit your personal information to us via e.g. e-mail or the contact forms at Tink’s websites, or where you otherwise reach out to Tink for business purposes or use our services for such purposes, as well as where Tink has collected personal information about you for business purposes via e.g. public sources or at an event, meeting or similar interaction, and when Tink sends you marketing communications for business purposes. It explains how Tink AB and other Tink companies within the Visa Group
(“Tink,” “we,” “us,” or “our”) collect, use, and disclose personal information. Some Tink companies and services have different privacy notices that are provided when you use them. We also have some supplemental privacy notices that provide additional information as required by law. For instance, this General Privacy Notice does not apply to personal information we collect about end users when they connect their financial accounts through Tink, since this is covered by our Privacy Notice for end users (accessible here).
