Last Updated: July 30, 2021

Introduction

Clair Inc. ("Company" or “We" or “Clair”) facilitates the provision of financial services to hourly workers, including wage advances. Clair respects your privacy and is committed to protecting it through our compliance with this Privacy Policy. This Privacy Policy explains and governs how the Clair collects, uses, discloses, and otherwise processes personal information or personal data when you download, access, or use the Clair Website or Mobile Application (“Clair Website and Mobile App”) to access Clair’s products and services (collectively, the “Services”).

Scope

Personal information or personal data refers to any data or information which relates to an identified or identifiable natural person, and are subject to applicable data protection laws, including the EU General Data Protection Regulation 2016/679 (“GDPR”) or the California Consumer Privacy Act (Assembly Bill 375), as amended (“CCPA”). 

Clair is a data processor (under GDPR) or service provider (under CCPA) and users of the Clair Website and Mobile App are the data controllers (under GDPR) or businesses (under CCPA) for such personal data or personal information. Additionally, Clair may act as an independent controller or business of personal information or personal data with respect to its own processing activities. In certain instances, Clair uses third-party processors and sub-processors on the Clair Website and Mobile App to provide its Services, for example using Freshworks for customer support. 

Residents of California are afforded certain rights regarding their personal information or personal data. Under the CCPA, personal information or personal data refers to “information that identifies, relates to, describes, references, is reasonably capable of being associated with, or could reasonably be linked, directly or indirectly, with a particular consumer, household, or device.”

Clair’s processing of personal information for the Services using the Clair Website and Mobile App is governed by this Privacy Policy. Clair may act as an independent controller or business of personal information or personal data with respect to its own processing activities. 

Please read this policy carefully to understand our policies and practices regarding your information and how we will treat it. If you do not agree with our policies and practices, your choice is not to use the Clair Website and Mobile App.
