  1. Notice

Our Privacy Policy describes how we use Personal Data we receive from different sources. This Privacy Shield Policy describes how we process Personal Data covered by the Privacy Shield.

 

  1. Choice

If Personal Data covered by this Privacy Shield Policy is to be used for a new purpose that is materially different from that for which the Personal Data was originally collected or subsequently authorized, or is to be disclosed to a non-agent third party, PayQuicker will provide EU and Switzerland Consumers with an opportunity to choose whether to have their Personal Data so used or disclosed. Requests to opt out of such uses or disclosures of Personal Data should be sent to: privacy@payquicker.com.

If Sensitive Personal Data covered by this Privacy Shield Policy is to be used for a new purpose that is different from that for which the Personal Data was originally collected or subsequently authorized, or is to be disclosed to a third party, PayQuicker will obtain the EU or Switzerland Consumer explicit consent prior to such use or disclosure.

  1. Data Integrity and Purpose Limitation

We may use any Personal Information we obtain for the purposes indicated in our Privacy Policy or as otherwise notified to you. We will not process Personal Data in a way that is incompatible with these purposes or as subsequently authorized by you. We take reasonable steps to limit the collection and usage of Personal Information to that which is relevant for the intended purposes for which it was collected, and to ensure that such Personal Information is reliable, accurate, complete, and current. We will adhere to the Principles for as long as we retain the Personal Information collected under the Privacy Shield.

When we process Personal Information in the context of our Services, we process and retain Personal Information only as necessary to provide our Services, or as required or permitted under applicable law.

 

  1. Accountability for Onward Transfer

In the event we transfer Personal Data covered by this Privacy Shield Policy to a third party acting as a controller, we will do so consistent with any notice provided to Data Subjects and any consent they have given, and only if the third party has given us contractual assurances that it will (i) process the Personal Data for limited and specified purposes consistent with any consent provided by the Data Subjects, (ii) provide at least the same level of protection as is required by the Privacy Shield Principles and notify us if it makes a determination that it cannot do so; and (iii) cease processing of the Personal Data or take other reasonable and appropriate steps to remediate if it makes such a determination. If PayQuicker has knowledge that a third party acting as a controller is processing Personal Data covered by this Privacy Shield Policy in a way that is contrary to the Privacy Shield Principles, PayQuicker will take reasonable steps to prevent or stop such processing.

We may also need to disclose Personal Data in response to lawful requests by public authorities, for law enforcement or national security reasons, or when such action is necessary to comply with a judicial proceeding or court order, or when otherwise required by law. We do not offer an opportunity to opt out from this category of disclosure.

 

  1. Data Security

PayQuicker takes reasonable and appropriate measures to protect Personal Data covered by this Privacy Shield Policy from loss, misuse, and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, and destruction, taking into due account the risks involved in the processing and the nature of the Personal Data.

  1. Access to Personal Data

Data Subjects whose Personal Data is covered by this Privacy Shield Policy have the right to access such Personal Data and to correct, amend, or delete such Personal Data if it is inaccurate or has been processed in violation of the Privacy Shield Principles (except when the burden or expense of providing access, correction, amendment, or deletion would be disproportionate to the risks to the Data Subject’s privacy, or where the rights of persons other than the Data Subject would be violated).  Requests for access, correction, amendment, or deletion should be sent to: dpa@payquicker.com.

 

  1. Recourse, Enforcement, and Liability

PayQuicker’s participation in the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield Framework and the Swiss-U.S. Privacy Shield Framework is subject to investigation and enforcement by the Federal Trade Commission.

In compliance with the Privacy Shield Principles, PayQuicker commits to resolve complaints about your privacy and our collection or use of your Personal Data. Data Subjects with inquiries or complaints regarding this Privacy Shield Policy should first contact PayQuicker at: dpa@payquicker.com

PayQuicker has further committed to refer unresolved privacy complaints under the EU-U.S. and Swiss-U.S. Privacy Shield Principles to an independent dispute resolution mechanism, the BBB EU PRIVACY SHIELD, operated by the Council of Better Business Bureaus. If you do not receive timely acknowledgment of your complaint, or if your complaint is not satisfactorily addressed, please visit https://www.bbb.org/EU-privacy-shield/for-eu-consumers for more information and to file a complaint. A binding arbitration option may also be available to you in order to address residual complaints not resolved by any other means.
