When you sign up to the Ampli app (App) and add an account, we will use your transaction and other information to present you with tailored offers, recommendations and marketing in the App from us, other RBC companies, and Third Parties.
We may present to you through the App offers for pre-approved credit and other products from Royal Bank of Canada. To do so, Royal Bank of Canada will need to make a soft inquiry about you to credit reporting agencies and by accepting these terms and conditions you consent to Royal Bank of Canada making such a soft inquiry. Note that a soft inquiry is a credit report check that is used solely for information purposes and it does not affect your credit score.
Tailored offers (including pre-approved credit offers), recommendations and marketing (Promotional Content) are all an integral part of the App. Promotional Content presented to each user may differ. All Offers may not be presented to all users. By accepting these terms and conditions you accept that we will present you with Promotional Content.

The Services currently provided by the App are set out below:

You must update your Log-In Information as soon as it changes in order for us to retrieve Aggregation Information. You are responsible for entering the correct information when setting up your Connected Account. We are not responsible for any error on your part.

Ampli Cash earned while your Connected Account was active will remain in your Member Account and may be cashed out subject to applicable terms. Aggregation Information that was collected when the Connected Account was active will be retained in accordance with our standard retention policies. Removing a Connected Account does not terminate your use of the App. If you choose to remove a Connected Account then later add that Connected Account then we will track and account for Ampli Cash beginning on the date you add the Connected Account.
