This Privacy Policy explains the best practices that Prysm Financial Technology LLC (“Prism”, “we”, “us”, or “our”) employs regarding the collection, use and disclosure of information that we receive through our website located at https://www.prism.co (the “Website”) and the services accessible via the Website (together, the “Services”). “You” or “your” means an individual who visits or uses the Services. This Privacy Policy explains how we collect, protect, use and share information that identifies, relates to, or could be reasonably linked, directly or indirectly, with a particular identified or identifiable natural person or household (“Personal Information”).

By using, accessing or submitting information through the Services, you agree to be bound by the terms of this Privacy Policy. This Privacy Policy does not apply to any third-party websites, services or applications, even if they are accessible through our Services.

1. PRIVACY POLICY UPDATES

Any information that is collected via our Services is covered under the Privacy Policy in effect at the time that such information was collected. We may revise this Privacy Policy from time to time.
