You are hereby informed that use of the service offered by Perspecteev is subject to your unconditional acceptance of these General Terms and Conditions of Use.
1. Purpose of these General Terms and Conditions of Use
1.1. Description of the Service
You acknowledge that the Service offered by Perspecteev is solely intended to provide You with an application that assists with personal finance management, and that any management decisions You make will be made autonomously and independently from the Service provided by Perspecteev. Perspecteev does not provide any asset or portfolio management advice or investment recommendations.
The Service offered by Perspecteev does not in any way consist in carrying out banking, payment or stock exchange transactions. The Service’s functionalities do not permit these types of transactions to be carried out.
You are hereby informed that Perspecteev is a commercial company that does not offer any banking, payment or investment services or any ancillary services within the meaning of the French Monetary and Financial Code.
Perspecteev is not authorized to provide such services and has not been licensed by the relevant authorities to provide them. Accordingly, You are hereby informed that Perspecteev cannot be considered to be a credit or payment institution.
1.2. Characteristics of the Service
The Bankin application offers a tool for online bank account, which is reserved for the personal use of each User.
It enables You to use a secure application to view all of the bank accounts You hold with different banks and the transactions registered on these accounts.
The Service offered by Perspecteev utilizes raw, unenhanced data. The Bankin application can be used to reorganize the data according to a structure that is specific to the application. Bankin Users are the sole owners of the data. Users have lawful access to the data and are freely entitled to exploit it.
2. Enrollment and Access to the Service
Acceptance and Enforcement of the General Terms and Conditions of Use
To create a user account and access the Bankin application, You must accept these General Terms and Conditions of Use, which constitute a contract between You and Perspecteev.
You can accept these General Terms and Conditions of Use through a process designed to ensure the integrity of your consent. You will first be invited to read these General Terms and Conditions of Use.
Perspecteev reserves the right to modify these General Terms and Conditions of Use as it deems necessary and useful. You will be invited to review the modified General Terms and Conditions and accept or reject them as set out in section 11.
In any event, your use of the Service indicates your unconditional acceptance of the General Terms and Conditions of Use in force at the time of use.
If any of the clauses of these General Terms and Conditions of Use are held to be invalid, never to have been written, or without effect, for any reason whatsoever, the other clauses will not be affected by such defects in any way and will remain in full force and effect.
3. How the Bankin Application Works
3.1. Bank Account Registration and Synchronization of Banking Data
The Bankin application provides You with a simple and convenient overview of all your bank accounts. You simply register the accounts You hold with different banking institutions and synchronize your bank statements.
The Bankin application can be used to register and update accounts automatically and all at once. This functionality is available only for certain banking institutions. You can consult the list of eligible institutions via the drop-down synchronization menu.
To register a bank account, You must select the name of the banking institution that holds your bank account(s) and then register your login(s) or account number(s) and password(s) for the banking institution(s).
Once You have provided this information and your account(s) have been synchronized with the Bankin application, your data will be updated automatically.
Perspecteev may decide, as of right and with no entitlement to compensation, (i) to withdraw a banking institution from the list of eligible banking institutions or (ii) to discontinue the option for automatic bank account synchronization and updating. Perspecteev will make an effort to give You reasonable advance notice of such withdrawals or discontinuations.
In order to improve the application’s functionalities, Perspecteev reserves the right to suspend access to the application for a set period of time. In that case, Perspecteev will make an effort to give You reasonable advance notice that access will be suspended.
Perspecteev will not under any circumstances be liable for the bank information and data obtained from the websites of your banking institutions, and in particular for the updating of such data.
You are solely responsible for the banking data that is synchronized with your banks and You agree to grant access to said personal data for the purpose of using the Bankin application.
In order to automatically update each User’s bank accounts and collect the corresponding banking data from different online banking services, passwords for these services must be entered automatically. You therefore accept the automated entry of the different passwords associated with the online banking services in which You enroll, and You are responsible for verifying that such operations are compatible with your contractual obligations to the banking institutions that hold your bank accounts.
3.2. Management of Personal Data
3.2.1. Disclosure of Personal Data
You expressly agree to allow your personal data relating to the accounts You hold with the banking institutions to be disclosed to Perspecteev (login and password for access to the bank’s web interface, account number, bank card number, account balance and account transactions), and to waive banking secrecy in favor of Perspecteev so that it can provide the Service, conduct maintenance operations and provide online assistance.
Accordingly, You authorize Perspecteev to access, in your name and on your behalf, each of your registered bank accounts for the purpose of carrying out all of the actions required in order to provide the Service.
3.2.2. Confidentiality of Personal Data
Perspecteev protects the confidentiality of the data it collects and attaches the utmost importance to ensuring that its web hosts and technology suppliers do the same. In this regard, Perspecteev takes all necessary precautions to preserve the confidentiality of said data and represents that it works with trustworthy web hosts and technology suppliers that are known for their reliable services and for the high degree of protection they provide for the confidentiality of personal data.
You are hereby informed that the disclosure of your authentication information (logins, passwords, etc.), in particular to Perspecteev, could constitute a violation of the general terms and conditions of use of your banking institution’s(s’) online banking service. You are aware that this may entail a full or partial waiver of your banking institution’s(s’) liability for the potentially harmful consequences of such disclosure, particularly in the event of fraudulent use of the data disclosed to Perspecteev. You represent that You are fully aware of this possibility and accept it in full knowledge of the consequences. You accordingly agree not to hold Perspecteev liable for any loss or damage relating to any use of the disclosed data.
The personal data and authentication information that is disclosed will be used solely for the purpose of providing the Service.
3.2.3. Processing of Personal Data
You expressly agree that, for the purpose of automatically updating the bank accounts You hold with banking institutions, the authentication data used for synchronization (logins, passwords, etc.) may be encrypted and anonymized and then be transmitted as necessary to Perspecteev’s web hosts and technology suppliers, which are based in the European Union and which will then synchronize the data with each of your registered banking institutions.
Perspecteev provides You with access to an appendix specifying the territory where the recipients of such data operate and explaining how the data is used (available on request).
You can also access Perspecteev’s cookies policy.
3.2.4. Protection of Personal Data
In order to provide adequate protection for your personal data, Perspecteev has ensured that its web hosts and technology providers offer all possible safeguards to ensure the protection of said data, as prescribed by the European Commission.
In this regard, its web hosts and technology providers take all necessary measures to protect data that can be used to identify You, and they use such data solely for the purposes of providing the Service.
You are hereby informed that your personal data will not be processed by Perspecteev’s web hosts unless Perspecteev instructs them to do so. In that case, Perspecteev will take all necessary precautions with regard to the nature of the data and the risks that its processing presents, with a view to maintaining the security of your personal data.
3.2.5. Statistical Processing
You recognize Perspecteev’s right to use the data for statistical purposes and, once the data has been anonymized, to transfer or assign the corresponding statistical results to any third party.
3.2.6. Protection of Privacy
This section is devoted to Perspecteev’s privacy protection policy. It provides You with details regarding the collection and use of your personal data, as well as your rights in this regard, in the aim of ensuring You have a positive and confident experience with the Service. This section is thus important for You as a User.
