Unified Payments Group LLC (“Unified Payments Group,” “we”, “our”, or “us”) offers payment gateway services that enable businesses and merchants (each, a “Merchant”) to accept payments from you.
Personal Information We Collect
“Personal Information” is any information that relates to an identified or identifiable individual or you, including your proprietors and owners. We collect the following Personal Information: your full name, email address, address, phone number, payment information (e.g., credit or debit card number, or bank account information), and/or transaction information (e.g., purchase amount, date of purchase, payment method, transaction history, purchase history and order information, time stamps related to your order, transaction and payment, delivery information and billing or shipping address). We may receive this information directly from you or from third parties, including Merchants. You authorize each Merchant to share and disclose to us Personal Information it may retain or otherwise have access to about you.
In the event we conduct any activities to detect and resolve any fraud or security concerns, we will receive Personal Information from third parties, including, but not limited to third-party verification services, credit bureaus, financial institutions, mailing list providers, and publicly available sources, as necessary to confirm your identity and prevent fraud or address any security concern.
We, and our third-party partners, collect certain Personal Information automatically when you visit or use our Services. This information is typically collected through a variety of tracking technologies, including cookies, web beacons, embedded scripts, location-identifying technologies, file information, and other technology (collectively, “Tracking Technologies”). We, and our third-party partners, use these Tracking Technologies and other tools to automatically collect usage and device information, such as your IP address, location, browser type, Internet service provider, platform type, device type, operating system, date and time stamp, a unique ID that allows us to uniquely identify your browser, mobile device or your account, your internet service provider, and other such information. We also collect information about the way you use or access our Services, for example, the site from which you came and the site to which you are going when you leave our website, the pages you visit, the links you click, how frequently you access the Services, whether you open e-mails or click the links contained in e-mails, whether you access the Services from multiple devices, and other actions you take on the Services.
Use of Personal Information
We use Personal Information to facilitate the business relationships we have with our customers, including Merchants, to comply with our financial regulatory and other legal obligations, and/or to pursue our legitimate business interests, including, but not limited to, promoting, analyzing, modifying and improving our products, systems and services, analyzing and advertising our products and services, conducting aggregate analysis and developing business intelligence that enable us to operate, protect, make informed decisions, and reporting on the performance of our business. We also use Personal Information to complete payment transactions and to provide payment-related services to you and Merchants. We may use Personal Information to send you marketing communications about our products and services or the products and services of third parties, invite you to participate in our events or surveys, or otherwise communicate with you for marketing purposes, provided that we do so in accordance with the consent requirements that are imposed by applicable law. We may also use Personal Information to provide you with target advertisements for products or services offered by us or third parties, where allowed by applicable law.

Information Storage and Security
Your information may be stored and processed in the United States or any other country in which we or our parent, subsidiaries, affiliates, or service providers maintain facilities or otherwise stores information. If you are located in other regions with laws governing data collection and use that may differ from U.S. law, please note that we may transfer information, including personal information, to a country and jurisdiction that does not have the same data protection laws as your jurisdiction. In addition, information collected about you may be stored using cloud-based services. Information stored in the cloud may be maintained by third-party networks in locations in which such third-party networks operate or maintain data storage or processing facilities. We care about the security of your information and employ physical, administrative, and technological safeguards designed to preserve the integrity and security of all information collected through our Services. However, no security system is impenetrable, and we cannot guarantee the security of our systems 100%. In the event that any information under our control is compromised as a result of a breach of security, we will take reasonable steps to investigate the situation and, where appropriate, notify those individuals whose information may have been compromised and take other steps, in accordance with any applicable laws and regulations.
We will retain your information for as long as you use our Services, to resolve disputes, establish legal defenses, conduct audits, enforce our agreements, comply with applicable laws or as long as we otherwise deem appropriate. We also maintain your Personal Information as part of our standard backup procedures.
