Float uses information to perform and improve the Services, contact you, conduct research, and provide anonymous reporting for clients. For example, we may use information to provide member support, process transactions, resolve disputes, collect payments, prevent illegal activities, customize the Services, reduce risk to parties involved in our transactions, and verify the accuracy of information.
