Our payment provider (Qwil Inc.) requires personal identity information like birthdate and social security number (SSN) for compliance and risk management reasons. The banks require that Qwil verify that both our users and their companies are real (i.e. not fraudulent). All sensitive personal information that we collect from you is stored securely.
Please note that, for business accounts, birth dates and SSN's are only used for identity validation and not for tax purposes.
