Last revised: July 11, 2022

At ChargeAfter, we protect you by complying with all applicable privacy and data protection laws.

Please read this Privacy Policy carefully. If you do not agree to this Privacy Policy, please discontinue your interaction with ChargeAfter immediately.  

ChargeAfter, Inc. (together with our affiliates, “ChargeAfter,” “we,” “us,” or “our”) is a technology service provider to businesses that sell products and services to consumers (“Merchants”). We provide Merchants with a proprietary software application (the “Platform”) that connects their consumers with participating credit and leasing providers (together, “Providers”) at the point of sale (the “Services”). Consumers don’t pay for the Services. We aren’t a Merchant. We don’t make loans or offer leases. 

If you accept a financing offer, you will interact directly with the Provider that made the offer. Your legal relationship will be directly between yourself and the Provider and subject to the Provider’s terms, conditions, and privacy policies. We don’t accept, and expressly disclaim, any responsibility or liability for the terms and conditions, privacy policy, or actions or inactions of Providers. For more information on the collection and use of your Personal Information by specific Merchants and Providers, please refer to their privacy policies, which are available on their websites. 

As used in this Privacy Policy, “Personal Information” means information that identifies, relates to, describes, is capable of being associated with, or could reasonably be linked with a particular individual or household (including, but not limited to, first and last name, phone number, email address, online identifiers, IP address, and information concerning electronic devices).
