We take your privacy and security seriously at Brightside. Your money and information are safe with us. Because we're a digital bank, there are a lot of things to consider. We've broken it down into three categories: money, your digital identity (aka what you share online), and what we share with third parties.
Because we are part of ATB, we provide ATB's Deposit Guarantee for your money. Basically, the money deposited with Brightside is guaranteed by the Government of Alberta.

Your personal information
We collect personal information about you related to activities around your account. These include setting it up, updating information, collecting amounts owing to us, verifying your identity, contacting you, marketing to you if you provide consent, detecting and prevent fraud and meeting our legal obligations. To do this, we share personal information with service providers that we use to help us out and act on our behalf.
If we notice some weird stuff going on with your Brightside Buckets—unusual, improper, suspicious or prohibited transactions—we’ll inform the government and law enforcement authorities about the activity. We may also share information with government or law enforcement if we are allowed to or have to by law.
