    Upon your request to cash out your earnings from the Program, 8Share collects information for the system to transfer your earnings into cash, which is directly transferred to the bank account that you have specified. This information is deemed confidential by 8Share and will never be made public. This information includes: bank account holder’s name, bank account holder’s identification number, bank name to which your earnings will be transferred to, and bank account number. A phone number is needed to contact you or the bank account holder should the need arise to quickly resolve issues related to the transfer process. This cash out information is then transferred to the bank of your choice for the bank to verify and deposit the cash we're transferring to you.
