Linked Services Information
* We currently link your online Bayport Account to an Information Aggregation provider, in our case it is Envestnet®.
This process does not affect your credit score, nor is this a subscription or paid service.
The Information Aggregation provider accesses your online banking account in a ‘read-only’ state and gathers information through secure and encrypted channels so none of your online banking information is ever stored by Bayport. By linking your account, we can provide you with high-quality financial feedback through our valued services such as the Credit Health Report.
Access like this is usually always reported directly to you in a transparent manner i.e. your bank will notify you when Bayport accesses your account to perform a ‘read-only’ exercise.

Our internal systems, servers, databases, and other infrastructure is access controlled and highly restricted.
