National Processing Alliance Merchant Services, is committed to safeguarding the privacy and security of the information we collect. This statement explains the policies we follow with respect to the handling of customer information collected by us.
Collection of Information We collect, retain and use information about you only for specific business purposes and where we reasonably believe that it will help administer our business or provide products and services to you. The information is used to protect and administer your records, account, and funds; to comply with certain laws and regulations; and to help us design and enhance our products and services offerings so that we may provide you with quality products, services, and superior customer support.
We do not license, sell, rent or trade any collected business information, including contact information or specific information about your accounts or other personally identifiable information unless: (1) you request or authorize it; (2) information is provided to help complete a transaction initiated by you; or (3) the disclosure otherwise is lawfully permitted or requested.
For research purposes, we may use such information to generate statistics on merchant activity including transaction patterns, but these research initiatives will never include any personally identifiable information without authorized merchant consent.
Cookies: A cookie is a small amount of data, which often includes an anonymous unique identifier that is sent to your browser from a web site’s computers and stored on your computer’s hard drive.
Each web site can send its own cookie to your browser if your browser’s preferences allow it, but (to protect your privacy) your browser only permits a web site to access the cookies it already sent to you, not the cookies sent to you by other sites.
You can configure your browser to accept all cookies, reject all cookies, or notify you when a cookie is set. (Each browser is different, so check the “Help” menu of your browser to learn how to change your cookie preferences.)
If you reject all cookies, you may not be able to use NPA Merchant Services products or services that require you to “sign in”, and you may not be able to take full advantage of all offerings. However, there may be some NPA Merchant Services products and services that do not require that you accept cookies.
NPA Merchant Services uses its own cookies for a few purposes, including to conduct research to improve NPA Merchant Services content and services, and to evaluate and track the effectiveness of our marketing programs. No personal information is stored in cookies.
Security Measures: NPA Merchant Services has implemented a number of security measures to protect your information. Your information is protected on secured networks and is accessible by a limited number of employees who have special access rights to such systems. When you access merchant information, we offer the use of a secure server. Industry-standard encryption technologies are used when transferring or receiving sensitive information supplied by users. NPA Merchant Services updates and tests its technology to improve the protection of our information about you and to ensure the integrity of our information on a regular basis.
Third Party Links: In an attempt to provide increased value to our visits, NPA Merchant Services may choose various third party web sites to link to from its own site. However, even if the third party is affiliated with NPA Merchant Services, NPA Merchant Services has no control over these linked sites, each of which may (or may not) have their own privacy policies and practices in place. NPA Merchant Services has no responsibility or liability for these independent policies or practices or for the content of such web sites. These linked sites are for your convenience and you access them at your own risk. Nonetheless, NPA Merchant Services seeks to protect the integrity of its web site and the links placed upon it and therefore it requests any feedback not only on its own site, but for sites it links to as well (including if a specific links does not work.)
