Protecting Your Privacy & Verification
We ensure the highest level of security with every payment. Here at Clark, we never have access to sensitive details about your account - we do not store bank account or credit card numbers. All information is encrypted and stored with Stripe.
In order to protect your account, Stripe needs to know the last four digits of your social security number and your birthday. While we can see your birthday, we do not have access to your social security number. Stripe guarantees to protect this information and it will never be shared with an outside party.
*Finding Your Routing and Account Numbers
You'll need to provide your routing and account numbers to set up direct deposit. These numbers can easily be found by logging in to online banking or looking at the front of a personal check.
