Revised Privacy Statement – Frequently Asked Questions

1. What are you updating in the Privacy Statement for Mint?

The main change for us is that we’ve combined our Privacy Statement with that of our parent company, Intuit.

The Privacy Statement now applies to all Intuit products, including Mint. Other changes are:

a)     It’s easier to read.

The new Privacy Statement has been simplified so you can find what you’re looking for at a glance, with headings and summaries for each section. You’ll also find more comprehensive details about how Intuit—and Mint—collects, uses and discloses information.

b)     It complies with new requirements for international data transfers.

This doesn’t apply directly to Mint customers, but Intuit has updated its Privacy Statement to comply with the new EU-US Privacy Shield. The Privacy Shield is an agreement that protects European Union (EU) residents’ personal information when dealing with US companies. Mint does not currently support EU residents, but Intuit’s commitment to global privacy benefits all its customers.
