First Payment Services, LLC
The basis of each customer relationship with First Payment Services® (FPS) is built on trust. You have chosen to do business with FPS, and we guard that relationship with great care, beginning with the information you have chosen to share with us.
IF YOU DO NOT AGREE TO THE PRACTICES AS DESCRIBED HEREIN, DO NOT USE OUR SITE.
We may modify our policy from time to time and will post those modifications of our Sites and Services here. Each time you use the site, the latest version of the policy will be displayed and will apply.
Information we collect:
We collect two types of information about visitors: Personal information (such as name, address, telephone number, email address, any financial information relating to you or your accounts that you may provide us, etc.) that you have voluntarily submitted to us, and aggregate information (such as information about how many visitors log on to our sites, the pages they access, etc.).
How do we use your information?
Personal information that you provide by email or web forms will be used only for the purpose of sending information to you about our services, responding to your questions or comments or as otherwise may be described at the point of collection (for example on a Web form). If you provide contact information, FPS staff may contact you to clarify your comment or question, to provide more detailed information to you, or, if you are an existing customer, to learn about your level of satisfaction with our services.
When and with whom we share your nonpublic personal information:
Personal information that you provide by email or Web forms is not sold to third parties. Additionally, unless otherwise indicated at the point of collection, the personal information you provide by email or Web forms is not shared with third parties. From time to time, however, we may disclose information to fulfill certain legal and regulatory requirements, or if we believe, in good faith, that such disclosure is legally required or necessary to protect others’ rights or to prevent harm.
How we collect nonpublic personal information:
As you use our website, our system collects server log data which includes, where possible, your IP address, your domain name, the type of browser and operating system you use, the pages you view, search request and, in some cases, data you submitted via Web forms. If you linked to our site from
another website, that website’s address may also be documented. We aggregate this data and use it for statistical purposes. The aggregate information helps us ascertain, for example, the volume of our website users’ interest in portions of our website, and also helps us understand how to improve the navigation and content of our website.
We may use “cookies” on some pages of our site to help us serve you better each time you return. A cookie is a small element of data that a website can send to your browser, which may then be stored on your system. The data collected from cookies helps us determine how many people visit this site and what pages of the site they view. We use this information to better serve all visitors as we improve our site content and design. Most browsers accept cookies automatically, but can be configured not to accept them or to indicate when a cookie is being sent.
How we protect your nonpublic personal information:
FPS uses physical, electronic, and managerial procedures to safeguard the confidentiality and security of the information you provide us. However, by using the Site, you understand and agree that perfect security of information does not exist and understand that there is a certain amount of risk in providing and receiving services over the Internet. You agree to use your Personal Information in a sensible way and you will avoid irresponsibly disclosing information, such as your Business Tax ID, to those that could improperly use or disclose it. We do not disclose your nonpublic personal information except as described in this privacy notice. We limit access to your nonpublic personal information to individuals who are performing a business service directly related to you. We encrypt nonpublic personal information stored electronically. Any data we transmit over a private network will be sent via secure, encrypted channels.
