Links to External Sites

At times, we may provide links to sites outside the control of Account Abilities to alert you to products, information, and services offered by other Web sites. These are only meant to supplement the information or products that we currently offer. Although we will only link to reputable sites, we cannot be responsible for data collection and use practices on linked sites.

When we ask you for information to fulfill a service you request, we will sometimes ask you to allow us to send you updates alerting you to new products, services and special offers.

External Aggregation Sites

Please use caution when using external financial aggregation or consolidation services. Financial aggregation and consolidation services collect your personal information from a variety of sources on one site. For example, they could collect your checking, savings, and credit card account balances at your financial institution, the value of your stocks and bonds in your brokerage account, and your frequent flier mileage information from the airline. Financial aggregators do this by having you provide them with your identification information and password for each individual Web site, then use these passwords to access each account. You must provide your permission and information to allow these services to collect this data. NEVER PROVIDE YOUR ACCOUNT INFORMATION OR PASSWORD TO A SITE THAT YOU DO NOT RECOGNIZE AND FULLY TRUST.

You should know: You will be unable to contest the validity of any Account Abilities transaction initiated by a consolidation site using access information you provide, whether or not you were aware of the specific transaction. You may revoke an aggregator's authority to access your account only by notifying us, in which case we may need to block your account until we issue new access codes.
