This Privacy Statement explains what personal data Till Payments (“Till Payments” or “we” or “us”) collects from you, through our interactions with you and through our website, products or services, and how we use it. It also describes your choices regarding use, access and correction of your personal information.

Your privacy is important to us. To protect your privacy, we provide this Privacy Statement explaining our information practices and the choices you can make about the way your information is collected and used. Please read this Privacy Statement carefully to understand what we do and the choices you can make.

To facilitate our operations, we may transfer, store and process your personal information in jurisdictions other than where you live, including in the United States. Laws in these countries may differ from the laws applicable to your country of residence. For instance, if you are a European Economic Area (EEA) data subject and your personal information is shared with our affiliates, partners, or third-party service providers acting on our behalf outside of the EEA, then it is done so pursuant to necessary means to ensure an adequate level of protection.

Till Payments adheres to the principles of the EU-U.S. and Swiss-U.S. Privacy Shield frameworks. Till Payments is committed to subjecting all personal data received from European Union (EU) member countries and Switzerland, respectively, in reliance on the Privacy Shield Framework, to the Framework’s applicable Principles. To learn more about the Privacy Shield Frameworks, visit the U.S. Department of Commerce’s Privacy Shield List at https://www.privacyshield.gov/list.

Till Payments is responsible for the processing of personal data it receives, under the Privacy Shield Framework, and subsequently transfers to a third party acting as an agent on Till Payments behalf. Till Payments complies with the Privacy Shield Principles for all onward transfers of personal data from the EU and Switzerland, including the onward transfer liability provisions.

With respect to personal data received or transferred pursuant to the Privacy Shield Frameworks, Till Payments is subject to the regulatory enforcement powers of the U.S. Federal Trade Commission. In certain situations, Till Payments may be required to disclose personal data in response to lawful requests by public authorities, including to meet national security or law enforcement requirements.

This Privacy Statement describes the personal information we collect from you, and how we use that information. We will use your personal information only in accordance with the terms of this Privacy Statement. We will not sell or rent your personal information or provide a list of our customers to third parties. However, there are limited circumstances in which some of your information will be shared with third parties under strict restrictions, so it is important for you to review the details of this Privacy Statement.

This Privacy Statement applies to all services that are offered by Till Payments and to personal information that we maintain about current and former customers.

Your access to and use of our web sites are subject to this Privacy Statement and any other Terms of Use or policies posted by us. If you have questions or concerns regarding this Privacy Statement, you should contact us by emailing info@tillpayments.com

COLLECTION AND USE OF YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION

What types of information do we collect, use and store?

The types of personal information we collect, use and store depend on the product or service you have with us. This may include the following information collected from you and from your transactions with us or our customers with whom you have a direct relationship:

  • • Your name, mailing address, city, state, zip code, email address, phone number and IP address

  • • Your bill payment (including payment amount and designated payee)

  • • Your credit or debit card or bank account numbers, expiration date, and cardholder or account holder name

  • • Social Security Number (SSN), passport number, and/or employer identification number (EIN)

  • • Unique identifier such as username, account number, and password

  • • Technical data such as IP address

We also collect aggregate information which does not identify you.

This information can be collected directly from you or through our customers with whom you have a direct relationship such as a merchant or financial institution. We must collect information about you in order to create the account or to facilitate the processing of your payment transaction.

Since certain information is required if you choose to register or make a payment transaction, you agree to provide accurate and complete information when providing personal information. Except as otherwise provided below under the heading "How do we use your information?", when you supply information about yourself for a specific purpose, we use that information only for the specified purpose and to manage internal operations and security. In general, you can visit our web site without telling us who you are or revealing any personal information about yourself.

However, some portions of our web site are accessible only to users who have registered with us.

At times we may ask you for contact information or conduct online surveys to better understand your needs, to provide you with enhanced services, and to help you use the services more effectively. If you participate on our online surveys, we will request certain personal information such as name, email address, and demographic information such as zip code. Participation in these surveys or contests is completely voluntary and you therefore have a choice whether or not to disclose this information. We will not share the personal information you provide through a survey with other third parties unless we give you prior notice and choice.

We also display personal testimonials of satisfied customers on our site in addition to other endorsements. With your consent we may post your testimonial along with your name. If you wish to update or delete your testimonial, you can contact us by emailing info@tillpayments.com.

HOW DO WE USE YOUR INFORMATION?

Internal Uses

We will only use your personal information:

  • 1) in the performance of a contract;
  • 2) when processing the personal information is in our legitimate interest, and that interest is not outweighed by your own interests;
  • 3) when obligated by law or it is in the public interest;
  • 4) when you have given consent.

We use the information we collect about you for everyday internal business purposes to provide our services, process your transactions, maintain your account(s), and provide customer service. We provide access to personal information of our customers only to those employees who require it as part of their job to provide our services, process customer payments, and provide customer service.

We may use your personal information for the purposes of marketing products and services from Till Payments or those of our partners. Those services may include contacting you via email or direct mail about opportunities related to our products or services, as well as to perform marketing analytics.

You may exercise choice to discontinue receipt of these opportunities at any time by emailing info@tillpayments.com.

As part of our fraud prevention product and service offerings, merchants and financial institution clients with whom you have a direct relationship with may elect to utilize auto-decisioning functionality. For instance, if a card present transaction was initiated in a country in which you are not visiting or do not reside, the transaction may be declined. Automated decisions utilize information only when it is required in connection with a contract or required by law. You may contact the merchant or financial institution with whom you have the direct relationship or contact our Data Protection Officer for more information on the auto decision process.

DISCLOSURE TO THIRD PARTIES

Till Payments shares certain personal information to run our everyday business. Till Payments does not sell or rent any of your personal information. Till Payments will not share any of your personal information with third parties except in the circumstances described below or with your permission.

We may share your personal information with our business partners, service vendors, suppliers, or other authorized third-party contractors who provide services or perform marketing or other functions on our behalf to provide a requested service or transaction. We will only provide these third parties with the minimum amount of personal information necessary to complete the requested service or transaction. We will require that these third parties keep your personal information confidential and not use your personal information except for the limited purpose of completing the requested service or transaction.

We disclose personal information with third parties that we believe it is appropriate to cooperate with in investigations of suspected fraud or other illegal activity. This would include situations involving potential threats to the physical safety of any person, or to conduct investigations of violations of Till Payments 's Terms of Use, or as otherwise required by law.

We will disclose your personal information when we are obliged by law to do so or when we suspect fraudulent or criminal activities. A variety of federal, state, and local laws or government regulations may require us to disclose non-public personal information about you to respond to court orders or legal investigations. In these instances, we will make commercially reasonable efforts to release only the information required by law, subpoena, legal process, or court order.

We may also disclose your personal information when otherwise permitted by applicable privacy laws when disclosure is needed to enforce our rights arising out of any agreement, transaction, or relationship with you.

We share required information with your agent or legal representative such as the holder of a power of attorney that you grant, or a guardian appointed for you.

We share aggregated statistical or demographic data from specified accounts with our business partners or for public relations and marketing purposes. For example, we may reveal the percentage of payments with a credit card versus a checking account. It is important to note however, that this aggregated information is not tied to any personal information that can identify you.

As with any other business, it is possible that in the future Till Payments could merge with or be acquired by another company. If such an acquisition occurs, the replacement company would have access to personal information maintained by Till Payments. This will include customer and personal account information, but it will continue to be bound by this Privacy Statement unless and until it is amended. You will be notified via a prominent notice on our sites on any such change in ownership or control of your personal information.

We make disclosures to third party partners as permitted by federal or state law. If you have registered with our service and indicated you want to receive communications from us, Till Payments may contract with third parties for the purposes of marketing products and services of Till Payments or those of our partners. Till Payments may also disclose personal information to financial service providers with which it has joint marketing agreements. These are formal agreements between unaffiliated third parties that are combined to market products or services to you. Till Payments will require such third parties to maintain confidentiality of your personal information.

When you provide personal information to us, we may continue to store and maintain that information for as long as necessary. If you want us to stop storing your personal information, you may request that we do so by emailing info@tillpayments.com.

ACCESS AND CHANGES TO PERSONAL INFORMATION (PI)

You have the right to amend or update inaccurate or incomplete personal information, request deletion of your personal information, or request that we no longer use it. Upon request Till Payments will provide you with information about whether we hold any of your personal information. If you have submitted incorrect personal information through our sites and would like to revise this information or if you would like to request access of your personal information, please contact us by submitting this request form. Please do not send us your personal information (PI) via email. We will respond to your request to access within a reasonable timeframe in compliance with law.

We will retain your information for as long as your account is active or as needed to provide you with services. In addition, we will maintain and use your information for as long as necessary to comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes, and administer our agreements.

If you want to cancel your account or request that we no longer use your information to provide you with any services, contact us by emailing info@tillpayments.com.

CHILDREN

Till Payments recognizes the importance of children's safety and privacy on the Internet. For this reason and to comply with certain laws, we do not intentionally collect personal, individually identifiable information from children under the age of 13, nor do we offer content targeted to children under 13.

SECURITY

The security of your information is very important to us. We take commercially reasonable precautions consistent with applicable regulatory requirements and applicable published security standards to protect the personal information submitted to us. However, no method of transmission over the Internet or method of electronic storage is 100% secure. While we strive to use commercially reasonable means to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee absolute security. When doing business with others such as advertisers to whom you can link from our site, you should consider the separate security and privacy policies of those other sites. When you enter personal information (such as a credit card number), we encrypt the transmission of that information by using best industry practices as outlined by the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS).

In the event that your sensitive personal information is accessed by an unauthorized individual and the misuse of your information is reasonably possible, we will notify you of the unauthorized access unless a law enforcement agency believes that such notification may interfere with a criminal investigation. The notification of such an event may be given to you by email or writing at our sole discretion.

If you have any questions about security on our web sites, please contact:
