Financial companies choose how they share your personal information. Federal law gives consumers the right to limit some but not all sharing. Federal law also requires us to tell you how we collect, share, and protect your personal information. Please read this notice carefully to understand what we do.




The types of personal information we collect and share depend on the product or service you have with us. This information can include:

Social Security number and account balances

Account transactions and purchase history

Transaction history and overdraft history

When you are no longer our customer, we continue to share your information as described in this notice.




All financial companies need to share customers’ personal information to run their everyday business. In the section below, we list the reasons financial companies can share their customers’ personal information; the reasons Green Dot Bank chooses to share; and whether you can limit this sharing.

What we do

How does Green Dot Bank protect my personal information?

To protect your personal information from unauthorized access and use, we use security measures that comply with federal law. These measures include computer safeguards and secured files and buildings.

How does Green Dot Bank collect my personal information?

  We collect your personal information, for example, when you:

  ■ open an account or make deposits or withdrawals from your account

  ■ use your debit card or provide account information

  ■ give us your contact information

We also collect your personal information from others, such as credit bureaus, affiliates, or other companies.


Why can’t I limit all sharing?

  Federal law gives you the right to limit only:

■ sharing for affiliates' everyday business purposes — information about your creditworthiness

■ affiliates from using your information to market to you

■ sharing for non-affiliates to market to you

State laws and individual companies may give you additional rights to limit sharing. See below for more on your rights under state law.

What happens when I limit sharing for an account I hold jointly with someone else?

Your choices will apply to everyone on your account.





Companies related by common ownership or control. They can be financial and nonfinancial companies.

■ Our affiliates include companies with a common corporate identity of Green Dot (such as our parent bank holding company Green Dot Corporation), financial companies such as Unirush, LLC and tax processing companies such as Santa Barbara Tax Products Group, LLC.


Companies not related by common ownership or control. They can be financial and nonfinancial companies.

■ Nonaffiliates we share with can include retail partners and other companies engaged in direct marketing and the selling of consumer products and services.

Joint marketing

A formal agreement between nonaffiliated financial companies that together market financial products or services to you.



Other important information


If you are a resident of California or Vermont, we will not share with nonaffiliates except for our everyday business purposes or with your consent.
