PaySense Services India Private Limited, (hereinafter referred to as the "Company" or “We” or “Us”) collects information from the user accounts created by individuals on the Paysense platform as well as other digital sources of information relating to such individuals (each a “User”) as set out herein. Paysense uses the information to undertake, among other things, an assessment of each Users’ credit worthiness which in turn may enable such Users to make applications for one or more credit facilities (each a “Credit Facility Application”) to credit providing financial institutions affiliated with Paysense (each a “Paysense Partner”). Each of the credit worthiness assessment and the application for a credit facility form part of the services offered by Paysense to Users and Paysense Partners (individually and collectively the “Services”) The Company collects information from Users at the time of account creation as well as on an on-going basis from their emails, text messages, mobile phone address book, social media profiles and such other sources as authorized by the users and mingles it to create unique profiles for individuals that it uses in conjunction with proprietary algorithms to determine whether or not a particular individual should be offered the Service. Paysense also provides risk evaluation and management services to the Paysense Partners.
Please note that not all individuals whose information is collected by the Company will not be offered the Credit Facility Application part of the Service because the Service provides a dynamic evaluation of risk. The Service also relies on other factors such as the amount/limit of credit facility (“Advance”) sought and other parameters/requirements set out by Paysense Partners including their credit eligibility parameters. Hence, the Company or the Paysense Partner may evaluate an individual and may allow him/her to submit a Credit Facility Application for a sum up to a specified credit limit to a Paysense Partner but disallow submission of Credit Facility Application to another Paysense Partner. Each offer of Service made by the Company is based on the Company’s proprietary and discretionary decision making methodologies and also relies on the credit risk requirements specified by a Paysense Partner.
