IMPORTANT INFORMATION TO NOTE:
SAFETYPAY OFFERS A PAYMENT FACILITATION WHEREIN PAYMENTS MAY BE MADE FROM YOUR OWN FINANCIAL INSTITUTION TO MERCHANTS BASED ON YOUR DIRECT AUTHORIZATION (THE “SAFETYPAY PAYMENT SOLUTION”). THE SAFETYPAY PAYMENT SOLUTION IS NOT A CREDIT CARD, BANK ACCOUNT OR A GUARANTY OF PAYMENT OF MERCHANDISE. YOU NEVER NEED TO DIVULGE YOUR PERSONAL OR FINANCIAL INFORMATION TO A MERCHANT OR SAFETYPAY. (WELLS FARGO AND CHASE CUSTOMERS: SEE SECTION 1 BELOW).
IF YOU DECIDE THAT YOU WANT TO REMOVE ANY PERSONAL INFORMATION THAT YOU PROVIDED TO US THROUGH THIS SITE, YOU MUST CONTACT US AND REQUEST THAT SUCH INFORMATION BE REMOVED. HOWEVER, PLEASE BE ADVISED THAT IT MAY BE IMPOSSIBLE TO PERMANENTLY REMOVE YOUR INFORMATION FROM THE INTERNET AS THE INFORMATION MAY CONTINUE TO EXIST IN CACHED PAGES, ETC.
VISITOR ACCESS TO THIS SITE AND USE OF THE SAFETYPAY PAYMENT SOLUTION (AS HEREINAFTER DEFINED) IS VOID AND UNAUTHORIZED WHERE PROHIBITED BY APPLICABLE LAW OR REGULATION.
1. What information does the Site and the SafetyPay Payment Solution collect?
Although you are not required to provide PII to view or use this Site, certain services that you may request (e.g., customer service inquiries, subscription to SafetyPay newsletters or other marketing information) may require you to provide personal information, such as your name, address, email address, and other contact information. We only use such information necessary to respond to your inquiries and to send you information such as newsletters, publications or other marketing materials that you have indicated you are interested in and have requested.
The SafetyPay Payment Solution
The SafetyPay Payment Solution specifically does not collect the PII of any user. Once you have made your selections on an affiliated merchant’s website and submitted your order by requesting the SafetyPay Payment Solution as your payment option, SafetyPay will direct you to your bank’s online payment service or otherwise provide you with a unique non-identifying number (the “Transaction ID”) which represents the tracking number for your eventual payment, settlement and possible customer service inquiries. To complete a transaction, you will be required to authorize the specific payment using your bank’s online payment system. SafetyPay will only facilitate those payments you authorize through your own financial institution. Authorized funds are transferred from your bank account to an account held by SafetyPay. SafetyPay then uses these funds to make a safe payment to the merchant for which you authorized the payment.

2. Information you give us
We may record information about your usage, such as what pages or advertisements are viewed, as well as what promotional items are purchased.
3. How do we use the information you provide us?
We may share your PII with our agents, representatives, contractors and other service providers so they can provide us with support services such as email origination, support services, customer relationship management services, or order fulfillment.
We may use your email or other PII to send commercial or marketing messages without your consent. We may also use your email address without further consent for non-marketing or administrative purposes (such as notifying you of major Site changes, changes to the SafetyPay Payment Solution or for customer service purposes).
We use both your PII and certain non-PII (such as anonymous user data, IP addresses, browser type, click stream data, etc.) to improve the quality and design of the Site and to create new features, promotions, functionality and services by storing, tracking, analyzing and processing user preferences and trends, as well as user activity and communications
4. Third Party Advertisers, Third Party Links
In an attempt to provide increased value to our visitors, we may choose various third party websites to link to or affiliates to work with, such as merchants. These businesses may have links to their sites on the Site or offer products to you on the Site. We may also operate promotional sites, provide services, or sell products jointly with these businesses. Even if the third party is affiliated with us, we have no control over these linked sites. Data collected by third party websites (even if offered on or through our Site) may not be received by us and therefore we cannot be responsible for the protection and privacy of any information that you provide while visiting those sites. Each of these third party sites has separate privacy and data collection practices independent from us. We encourage you to read the policies of these third party websites. By purchasing, or registering or making reservations for, products or services offered or sponsored by third parties or advertisers through third party links on the Site, or electing to receive communications (such as emails), you consent to our providing your personal information to those third parties.
Third Party Service Providers/Website Analysis Agent:
We employ other companies and individuals to perform functions on our behalf. Examples include, fulfilling orders, delivering packages, sending postal mail and e-mail, analyzing data, providing marketing assistance, processing payments, and providing customer service. Such companies will have access to personal information you provide needed to perform their functions, but are not authorized to use your PII for any other purpose. We may also use the services of marketing companies to help us measure the effectiveness of our advertising or promotions and how visitors use our site. The type of information we collect includes things such as pages, information and advertisements viewed as well as what promotional items are placed in a third party shopping cart or purchased, the amount of the purchase, the product number or quantity purchased. This information helps us learn things like what kinds of customers our site attracts and what kinds of offers our customers like to see.
Ads That Link Back to Our Site:
We may hire other companies to place our banner ads on their third party site and to perform tracking and reporting activities (“Third Party Advertisement Servers”). Third Party Advertisement Servers are subject to their own privacy policies. You are advised to review the privacy policies of these Third Party Advertisement Servers when you are visiting their site.
Your PII may be passed on to a third party in the event of a transfer of ownership or assets of SafetyPay or a bankruptcy. We may also disclose PII when we determine that such disclosure is necessary to comply with applicable law, to cooperate with law enforcement or to protect the interests or safety of SafetyPay or other visitors to the Site and users of the SafetyPay Payment Solution.
5. How does SafetyPay protect customer information?
We implement a variety of security measures to ensure the security of your personal information on our systems. Your personal information is contained behind secured networks and is only accessible by a limited number of our employees who have special access rights to such systems.
We do not transfer any information to nor do we receive any information from any merchant or your financial institution once you complete a purchase using the SafetyPay Payment Solution. SafetyPay will only have access to your Transaction ID during any purchase made using the SafetyPay Payment Solution. Any information collected by either third party service provider will remain with that provider.
Please bear in mind that third parties may unlawfully attempt to intercept or access transmissions or private communications. Although we work very hard to protect your privacy, we do not promise, and you should not expect, that your personal information or private communications will always remain private.
7. Individuals under 13 years of age
Pursuant to the provisions of the 1998 Federal Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (“COPPA”), our policy is to refuse individuals under the age of 13 years to submit information to the Site.
