Collection of Bank Information
When you share or provide access to bank statements, bank data, passwords, usernames, PINs, login information and/or any other personal or financial information about you and/or your Business in connection with the Capital Services (referred to collectively as “Bank Information”), you are licensing that content to us, Bank and Plaid for the purposes described in these Capital Terms and the Privacy Policies. You agree that all Bank Information will be subject to these Capital Terms and the Privacy Policies. You represent that you are a legal owner of, and that you are authorized to provide us, Bank and Plaid with Bank Information on behalf of yourself, your Business and/or any other account owner(s).
Use of Bank Information
You give Square Capital and Bank permission to use your Bank Information for purposes of: i) evaluating your business loan application, ii) evaluating your Business’s eligibility for any current or future Capital Services offers and marketing these offers to you and your Business, iii) servicing and collections activities related to your business loan, including but not limited to determining the amount of funds in your bank account available to be debited for loan repayment as authorized by your loan agreement, iv) investigating and reporting fraud or alleged fraud, v) evaluating your business for any products or services offered by us and marketing these products or services to you and your Business, vi) compliance with anti-money laundering and OFAC sanctions programs, and vii) internal analytics, credit modeling and product development.

Duration of Access
When you link a bank account in connection with the Capital Services, you authorize Square Capital, Bank and Plaid to continue to collect Bank Information from the financial institution you specify until the later of (i) the date your Square Capital loan ceases to remain outstanding and (ii) sixty (60) days following the submission date of an application for your business for the Square Capital program. The frequency at which Square Capital, Bank and Plaid will collect Bank Information during this period will vary. You can revoke this authorization by writing Square Capital using our contact form. Your revocation will not affect our ability to electronically credit and debit your Square-linked bank account to the extent permitted under any applicable terms and agreements. The Bank Information collected with your consent prior to your revocation will continue to be reviewed, used, stored and shared in a manner consistent with these Capital Terms and the Privacy Policies.
2. Credit Reports and Public Records

Checking your credit report for any of these reasons will not impact your credit score. You understand that, after evaluating your complete application and checking your credit report, Bank may decide not to offer Capital Services to your Business.
You understand that if your business’s loan application is declined based on any information from your consumer credit report, Square Capital, on behalf of Celtic Bank, will send a notice of this action to the business email address provided in the loan application. You acknowledge that such notice may include your personal credit score and information.
You consent to allow Square Capital to continue to access your consumer credit report and public records for as long as your loan with Square Capital remains outstanding.

4. Government Monitoring
To help the government fight the funding of terrorism and money laundering activities, Federal law requires Square Capital and Bank to obtain, verify, and record information that identifies each person who opens an account. When applying for a loan through Square Capital from Bank, we will obtain your name, address, date of birth and may ask you for other information that will allow us to identify you. We reserve the right to close, suspend, or limit access to the Capital Services in the event we are unable to obtain or verify this information.
