Forecasting your spending

Pariti obtains “bank feeds” using a third-party data aggregation service called Yodlee. (See: https://pariti.co.uk/security)

Yodlee effectively acts as you and logs into your bank account through a read only format. Login details are not stored by Parity.

@JamesBell is correct about screen scraping: https://developer.yodlee.com/Aggregation_API/Aggregation_Services_Guide/Aggregation/Yodlee_Data_Aggregation

And also about most banks requiring multi-factor authentication to transact.

Users should check their bank’s T&Cs to see if they allow third party access: http://www.wellersaccountants.co.uk/blog/Online-accounting-software-bank-feeds-terms-and-conditions.aspx
