Popular is committed to providing you with the most complete information possible to help you make sound financial decisions. As a convenience to you, Popular may provide access to information, products or services offered on websites or Internet resources that are owned or operated by other companies, that are not otherwise affiliates of Popular (“third-party website”). We provide this access through the use of hyperlinks that automatically move you from and out of Popular websites to a third-party website. When you link from a Popular website to a third-party website, a pop-up will appear to notify you that you are leaving the Popular website.

While we do our best to provide you with helpful, trustworthy resources, hyperlinks to third-party websites are solely for informational purposes. Popular cannot endorse, approve or guarantee information, products, services or recommendations provided at a third-party website. Because Popular does not control third-party websites, we may not always know when information on a linked third-party website changes. Therefore, Popular is not responsible for the content or accuracy of any third-party website and Popular will not be responsible for any loss or damage of any sort resulting from the use of a hyperlink on its website nor will it be liable for any failure of products or services advertised or provided on these linked third-party websites.

Popular offers hyperlinks to you on an “as is” basis. When you visit a third-party website by using a hyperlink on a Popular website, you will no longer be protected by Popular’s privacy policy or security practices , as well as other policies. The data collection, use and protection practices of the linked third-party website may differ from the practices of Popular websites. You should familiarize yourself with the privacy policy and security practices of the linked third-party website before providing personal information. Those are the policies and practices that will apply to your use of the linked third-party website, NOT Popular’s policies and practices. In the event you conduct a transaction on a linked third-party website, Popular will not represent either members or the owner of the linked or accessed third-party website.

Here are some tips to help you tell if you have left Popular website:

  • Instead of Popular address, the URL of the linked third-party website appears in the location box (or address field) of your web browser.
  • The appearance of the linked third-party website, including its colors and graphic design, is significantly different from the Popular website.
  • The linked third-party website or webpage does not appear in a new browser, but you find one or more of the following:
  • A pop-up will appear next to the third-party hyperlink.
  • The logo of a different company in the upper right hand corner or other prominent location on the linked third-party website, along with the words “Powered by”, “Brought to you by”, or “Provided by”.
  • The layout and content of the navigation tools on the left-hand side of the linked third-party website or in the header at the top of the new webpage are different from Popular’s navigation.
  • A hyperlink referring to a description of the company that sponsors the third-party website will appear in the website’s navigation. It may be titled “About (Third Party’s Name)”.
  • A third party’s privacy policy and terms of use statement are identified instead of Popular’s
  • Information in the footer at the bottom of the webpage contains information about a company other than Popular.
