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.

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.
We also limit access to information to those employees for whom access is necessary.

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 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.





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

■  Our affiliates include financial companies, such as our parent bank holding company.


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

■  Green Dot Bank does not share with nonaffiliates so they can market to you.

Joint marketing

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

■  Green Dot Bank does not jointly market.



Other important information


Depending on where you live, you may have additional privacy protections under state law. We will comply with applicable state laws before sharing nonpublic personal information about you. We may do this by sending a separate notice of those rights to you. For example, 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.
