At PayFlex, we value the trust you place in us and we take great care to help protect the information you share. This Privacy Statement describes our practices in connection with data we collect through software applications. This includes mobile applications and websites we host that contain a link to this Privacy Statement. We describe our privacy practices so it’s easy to navigate, read, and understand. We’re committed to treating your data with care and respect. And we manage our applications in a manner that’s compliant with law.
We may collect two types of data: Personal Information and Non-Personally Identifiable Information.
“Personal Information” means data that’s unique to you as an individual. This could mean your name, address, social security number, e-mail address, and telephone number. It could mean certain personal device information too. We describe this further below.
“Non-Personally-Identifiable Information” means data that doesn’t identify you personally. An example is usage data, either individually or taken together. And it may include demographic data, or data related to multiple members which does not include member-specific information, and certain data collected automatically through your device. This could be web browser data, server log files, cookies, pixel tags or beacons. And it could be other technologies and other non-personally identifiable data collected by us or given to us by you.
By collecting this data, we can provide you with better access to our services.
We get Personal Information when you register or create a personal profile with us. And we get it when you request products, services, or information from us.
We may collect certain personal device information to authenticate you or your device. We do this for application security. It can help prevent fraud and data loss. Device information we collect may be: physical location, IP address, battery information, application activity, data usage, accelerometer data, and malware information.
Where required by law or regulation, you’ll be able to update your data by sending us an e-mail. Or, if you have set up a personal profile, you’ll be able to update your data online.
