Some of our Website and Mobile Apps’ functionality can be used without revealing any personal information, though for features or services, personal information is required. If you do not use these specific features or services on the Website and Mobile Apps, then the only information we collect will be “Non-Personal Information” (i.e., information that cannot be used to identify you). Non-Personal Information includes information such as the web pages that you have viewed. In order to access certain features and benefits on our Website and Mobile Apps, you may need to submit “Personally Identifiable Information” (i.e., information that can be used to identify you). Personally Identifiable Information can include information such as your name and email address, among other things. You are responsible for ensuring the accuracy of the Personally Identifiable Information you submit to CardHQ. Inaccurate information may affect your ability to use the Website and Mobile Apps, the information you receive when using the Website and Mobile Apps, and our ability to contact you. For example, your email address should be kept current because that is one of the primary manners in which we communicate with you.
