The Tandem Service is a personal finance information management service that allows you to share expenses with a partner. The Tandem Service is provided to you by Tandem without charge and is meant to provide you with your information to allow you to seamlessly split expenses.

You agree that you understand these debts are not legally binding, and represent informal information sharing among couples. You agree that the Service cannot guarantee the accuracy of information entered by users.
For an optional premium fee of between $3 and $12 per month, you may access Tandem Premium Services.

By registering a payment card in connection with transaction monitoring, you authorize Tandem to share your payment card information with the Payment Card Networks so it knows you enrolled and participating in Tandem’s Personal Finance Management Platform.

You may opt-out of transaction monitoring on the payment card(s) you have registered by navigating to your settings menu to remove your linked card(s).
You acknowledge that Visa, Mastercard and AMEX may be unable to monitor every transaction made with your enrolled Visa, Mastercard and AMEX including PIN-based purchases on debit cards, purchases you initiate through identification technology that substitutes for a PIN, payments made through other payment methods (such as a digital wallet or a third party payment app, where you may choose your Visa, Mastercard and AMEX card as a funding source but you do not present your card directly to the merchant), payments of existing balances, balance transfers, or transactions that are not processed or submitted through the Visa U.S.A. or MasterCard, AMEX payment systems, and that these transactions are not eligible. You may opt-out of this monitoring at any time by selecting ‘Account’ from the home screen of your Tandem App and deleting your registered card(s). If you register a debit card, your transaction must be processed as a ‘credit’ (i.e., signature) transaction to make sure the transaction can be monitored. Do not use a Personal Identification Number (PIN) when paying for your purchases with your enrolled card if you want the transaction to be available for view or action on the Tandem App.
