Access To Data
All data access is based on a need-to-know basis. The secure protected area of our Web services site(s) may allow our customers, using a unique username and password, to access account information and transaction reporting, and to initiate or process transactions directly from the Web site, depending on their entitlements and account setup.
Only authorized employees who need information to perform a specific job are granted specific access to personally identifiable information. Every time policies are amended or new policies are added, our employees are notified and/or reminded about the importance we place on privacy, and the steps they should take to protect our customers' information.
Internet Address Information
We only use IP addresses, browser types and access times to analyze trends, administer the site, improve site performance and gather broad demographic information for aggregate use.
We retain pertinent records in order to measure and improve our customer service, and to investigate potential fraud and violations of our User Agreement. We may, over time, delete these records if permitted by law.
When we partner with another party to provide specific services, and a customer signs up for those services, we share only the contact information that is necessary for the third party to provide such services. Third parties are not authorized to use personally identifiable information except for the purpose of providing those services.
Some of our Web sites may contain links to other sites. PAYFREE is not responsible for the privacy practices of such other sites. We encourage our users to be aware when they are leaving our site and to read the privacy statements of each Web site that collects personally identifiable information. This privacy statement applies solely to information collected by PAYFREE through the PAYFREE Web site(s).
Supplementation of Information
PAYFREE is committed to using state-of-the-art technology, methodology, and services to protect customers, consumers and PAYFREE itself from credit risks, fraud and operational compromise. In addition to collecting and archiving application and transaction data from customers and consumers, PAYFREE also retrieves supplemental data from third parties to facilitate credit and operational decisions and monitoring. These third parties may include national and regional consumer and business credit bureaus, check verification services, address verification services and other third party transaction processors. Once the information is retrieved from third parties, it is archived in a secure environment. This data may be used to build proprietary databases or to develop statistically based credit, fraud or marketing models.
