This privacy statement discloses the privacy practices of the U.S. Payments Forum (the “Forum”) web site. Much of your use of the U.S. Payments Forum site can be done anonymously. To view most of the content provided, you don’t need to tell us who you are or provide any information about yourself. There are places that are restricted for access by members only. There are other places where we need information from you to so we can give you what you are requesting, or allow you to participate at a greater level. You can easily identify these places, because you are asked for information, or to log in, which means we use information you previously provided in exchange for issuing your log in codes. All others who are not affiliated with a member organization are referred to as “visitors” hereafter.
This document further details our policy concerning the privacy of the information members and visitors submit through one or more of the methods used for gathering this information.
We may share aggregated demographic information with our partners and advertisers. This is not linked to any personal information that can identify any individual person. E-mail is used to provide customer service, to provide requested information such as newsletters and articles, and to announce new U.S. Payments Forum programs, services, and events. Occasionally, at the discretion of the Forum, we will offer third parties the opportunity to share announcements and other information to our members and customers. The U.S. Payments Forum does not sell its lists to third parties in part or as a whole.
Organizations that join the U.S. Payments Forum are required to submit additional information about the company and individuals in order for the organization to deliver the member services the Forum provides. That information is securely managed by the U.S. Payments Forum and other contracted service providers. The Forum allows its members to manage their own personal information for the password-protected members-only web site, which is available to other members only, but not to outside third parties. The U.S. Payments FOrum does not guarantee that the actions of other members may result in information being given out to a third party. Members can request that their contact information be deleted from the members-only database by sending an email to [email protected].
Member organizations who submit individual contact information will be automatically subscribed to the newsletter and receive other U.S. Payments Forum email announcements. Other visitors, whether or not they are also members of the Forum, may be able to subscribe to receive this information as well. If a visitor wishes to subscribe to our electronic newsletter, we ask for contact information such as name and email address.
