Third Party Data Sharing

Some companies may offer aggregation websites and services that allow you to share your data with them in order to consolidate your account information from different sources (such as your accounts with us or with other financial institutions) so that you can view it in one location or perform actions related to your accounts using their services. To do this, a third party may request you to authorize access to your Blue Star Finance accounts by providing your Blue Star Finance username and passcode or by providing your information-sharing consent directly to Blue Star Finance.

The third party may access, on your behalf, information about yourself, your Blue Star Finance relationship, and your accounts with us. You should use caution and ensure that the third party has appropriate policies and practices to protect the privacy and security of any personal information you provide or to which they are gaining access. Use of your information by the third party is governed by your agreement with them, not by Blue Star Finance.

We are not responsible for the use or disclosure of any personal information accessed by any company or person to whom you provide your site username and passcode. If you share your Blue Star Finance username, passcode or other information about your accounts with others, we will consider that you have authorized any transaction or action initiated by using the access information you provide. If you decide to revoke the authority you have given to a third party, we strongly recommend that you change your Blue Star Finance passcode to ensure that the third party cannot continue to access your account. You may revoke your consent for certain third parties through the Security Center within Blue Star Finance Online Banking.
