We recognize your expectation of and respect your right to privacy. Furthermore, we maintain strict standards for security and confidentiality designed to prevent misuse of any information our customers share with us. We collect, retain and use information about customers only where we reasonably believe it would be useful and allowed by law to administer specific business relationships and to provide products, services and other opportunities to our customers. We use information we collect to identify you, to communicate with you, to help us respond to your questions, and to understand which of our products and services will best meet your needs.
IP Addresses and Click-Stream Data: We may collect IP addresses and/or click-stream data. An IP address is a number associated with the service through which you access the Internet, like your ISP (Internet service provider) or your company. Standing alone, your IP address is not personally identifiable information. However, we may combine this information with personally identifiable information. Click-stream data is information collected by our computers when you request certain pages from the Website. Click-stream data may include such information as the page viewed, the time, the source of the request, the type of browser making the request, the preceding page view and other such non-personal information. When analyzed, this data helps us analyze how visitors arrive at the Website, what type of content is most popular, what type of visitors in the aggregate are interested in particular kinds of content and advertising, and the like.
Protecting personally identifiable information about merchants and consumers is an important part of our business. We will not reveal specific information about customer accounts or other personally identifiable data to unaffiliated third parties for their independent use. We share and disclose such information only as described below. Integrated Payment Processing will send personally identifiable information about you to other companies or people when: 1) we have your consent to share the information; 2) we need to share your information to provide the product or service you have requested; 3) we need to send the information to companies who work on behalf of Integrated Payment Processing to provide a product or service to you (unless we tell you differently, these companies do not have any right to use the personally identifiable information we provide them beyond what is necessary to assist us in providing a product or service to you); and 4) we also may release personally identifiable information when we believe release is appropriate to comply with applicable law; enforce or apply other agreements; or protect the rights, property, or safety of Integrated Payment Processing, our users, or others. This includes exchanging information with other companies and organizations for fraud protection and risk reduction.
In order to attain the most complete and accurate records, we consistently maintain customer information. If you have reason to believe that your account information or records are incorrect, please contact a Customer Service Representative. We respond to requests to correct inaccurate information in a timely manner.
The information we collect is used to enhance your visit to the site, for internal tracking and site improvement purposes, to enable us to contact you, and to process your transactions you enter into on our site. Integrated Payment Processing also utilizes cookie technology and click stream analysis for these same purposes. You may configure your browser to reject cookies, but this may affect your ability to utilize our site to the same extent as a user who accepts cookies. Integrated Payment Processing does not acquire any more information about you than is required by law, is otherwise necessary to provide a high level of service efficiently to you, or to make its site as dynamic and useful as possible.
Information security is critical to our business. We work to protect the security of your information during transmission. We store information gathered on secure servers located in a locked data center. The number of employees involved in the management of the data center that have physical access to these servers is limited. We use firewalls and other security technology to prevent our servers from being accessed by unauthorized persons. Employee access to customer information is limited only to those employees who need the information in order to service our customers. We have educated our employees so they understand the importance of confidentiality and customer privacy, and they have been trained to adhere to the strictest of security measures. Customer information is dealt with in the most professional manner possible, and we believe in taking appropriate disciplinary measures where necessary to enforce employee privacy responsibilities.
