How Ordyss collects your personal information

Collection of your personal information may occur in a number of ways including:

  • Contact with a financial institution or any other party, on your behalf, and at your request, to obtain such information.

Specifically, personal information will be collected during the course of our relationship with you. Personal information may also be collected when you provide us with further instructions to act on your behalf in other matters.

Information we collect via our website or social media sites contributes to the development of our sites by allowing statistical analysis of users. This collection of statistical data is carried out anonymously with no attempt to identify users or monitor their specific browsing activities.
