We may share your Personal Data or other information about you with others in a variety of ways as described in this section of the Privacy Statement.

We may share your Personal Data or other information for the following reasons: we may share your Personal Data with members of Prudential Bank family of entities to, among other things, provide the Services you have requested or authorized; to manage risk; to help detect and prevent potentially illegal and fraudulent acts and other violations of our policies and agreements; and to help us manage the availability and connectivity of Prudential Bank products, Services, and communications. With other companies that provide services to us: we may share Personal Data with third-party service providers that perform services and functions at our direction and on our behalf. These third-party service providers may, for example, provide you with Services, verify your identity, assist in processing transactions, send you advertisements for our products and Services, or provide customer support. With other financial institutions: we may share Personal Data with other financial institutions that we have partnered with to jointly create and offer a product. These financial institutions may only use this information to market and offer Prudential bank-related products unless you have given consent for other uses. We may also share Personal Data to process transactions, provide you with benefits associated with your eligible cards, and keep your financial information up to date. With the other parties to transactions when you use the Services, such as other Users, merchants, and their service providers: we may share information about you and your Account with the other parties involved in processing your transactions. This includes other Users you are sending or receiving funds from, and merchants and their service providers. The information might include: Personal Data and Account Information necessary to facilitate the transaction; information to help other participant(s) resolve disputes and detect and prevent fraud; and aggregated data and performance analytics to help merchants better understand Users and to help merchants enhance Users’ experiences. With other third parties for our business purposes or as permitted or required by law: we may share information about you with other parties for Prudential Bank business purposes or as permitted or required by law, including: if we need to do so to comply with a law, legal process or regulations; to law enforcement authorities or other government officials, or other third parties pursuant to a subpoena, a court order or other legal process or requirement applicable to Prudential Bank; if we believe, in our sole discretion, that the disclosure of Personal Data is necessary or appropriate to prevent physical harm or financial loss or in connection with an investigation of suspected or actual illegal activity; to protect the vital interests of a person; to investigate violations of or enforce a user agreement or other legal terms applicable to any Service; to protect our property, Services and legal rights; to facilitate a purchase or sale of all or part of Prudential Bank business; in connection with shipping and related services for purchases made using a Service; to help assess and manage risk and prevent fraud against us, our Users and fraud involving our Sites or use of our Services, including fraud that occurs at or involves our business partners, strategic ventures, or other individuals and merchants ; to banking partners as required by card association rules for inclusion on their list of terminated merchants; to credit reporting and collection agencies; to companies that we plan to merge with or be acquired by; and to support our audit, compliance, and corporate governance functions.

- How Do We Work with Other Services and Platforms
A significant benefit and innovation of Prudential Bank Services is that you can connect your Account with a third-party account or platform. For the purposes of this Privacy Statement, an “account connection” with such a third-party is a connection you authorize or enable between your Account and a non-Prudential Bank account, payment instrument, or platform that you lawfully control or own. When you authorize such a connection, Prudential Bank and the third-party will exchange your Personal Data and other information directly. Examples of account connections include: linking your Account to a social media account or social messaging service; connecting your Account to a third-party data aggregation or financial services company, if you provide such company with your Account log-in credentials; or using your Account to make payments to a merchant or allowing a merchant to charge your Account. If you choose to create an account connection, we may receive information from the third-party about you and your use of the third-party’s service. For example, if you connect your Account to a social media account, we will receive Personal Data from the social media provider via the account connection. If you connect your Account to other financial accounts, directly or through a third-party service provider, we may have access to your account balance and transactional information, such as purchases and funds transfers. We will use all such information that we receive from a third-party via an account connection in a manner consistent with this Privacy Statement. Information that we share with a third-party based on an account connection will be used and disclosed in accordance with the third-party’s privacy practices. Before authorizing an account connection, you should review the privacy notice of any third-party that will gain access to your Personal Data as part of the account connection. For example, Personal Data that Prudential Bank shares with a third-party account or platform such as a social media account may in turn be shared with certain other parties, including the general public, depending on the account’s or platform’s privacy practices.
