Users and Visitors always have the option of disabling cookies via their browser preferences. If you disable cookies on your browser, please note that some parts of our Site may not function as effectively, and you will not be able to access the client portal, as this requires cookies to be enabled. As an automatic process, our Web server software records a log file of IP addresses that access the Site.
We also collect IP address information but do not ordinarily link IP addresses to Users’ Personal Information. However, we can and will use IP addresses to identify a User when we, in our sole discretion, determine that it is necessary to enforce compliance with our Terms and Conditions of Use or to protect our site, customers or others.
The online client portal
The online client portal allows clients to manage their accounts, including billing, projects and their personal information. We may use your information for internal marketing purposes unless you have asked us not to. We will always give you the opportunity to stop receiving material from us within any marketing materials we send.
How we use and disclose information
CARDsystems cooperates with law enforcement inquiries, as well as other third parties to enforce laws, such as: intellectual property rights, fraud, theft, harassment and other rights. We can (and you authorise us to) disclose any information about you if we believe in good faith that such disclosure is necessary to (a) comply with relevant laws or to respond to subpoenas or warrants served on us; (b) protect or defend the rights or property of CARDsystems or third parties; or (c) assist in an investigation.
We take security seriously, and employ several security measures in the handling and storage of your information. This includes encryption in the client area and in other sensitive areas of our website. Please note however that with current technology, we cannot guarantee the security of your data as it travels over the Internet.
