Please read this Policy carefully.

Remember that your use of our Services is at all times subject to our Terms of Service, which incorporates this Policy.

However, it does not apply to the Banking Account or Zolve Card themselves. Please refer to the terms and conditions you enter into with the Bank and the Bank’s privacy policy for information concerning those products and your privacy rights with respect to those products.
