INFORMATION COLLECTION AND USE

The issuer (i.e. the bank identified as the issuer on the back of your card) of your account and card is the primary owner of the information collected on this Website. Other than sharing your personal information with the issuer and individuals and companies, including agents or business partners, which are utilized by TSYS Prepaid to provide the backbone and infrastructure for many of our operational transactions and require this information to perform these essential functions ("Authorized Third Parties"), we will not sell, share, or rent this information to others in ways different from what is disclosed in this Privacy Policy. TSYS Prepaid may gather the following types of information about or from Accountholders:

ACCOUNT ID AND LOGIN NUMBER

Your account identification and login number will be your 16-digit account/card number ("ID Number") and your initial password will be your card verification number (“CVN”) that is preprinted on the back of your card. After your initial login at this Website using your ID Number and CVN, you may change your password to a more personalized password. Your ID Number and password are used to verify your identity when you login at this Website.

BROWSER INFORMATION

TSYS Prepaid may gather information from your browser that identifies your computer's capabilities. TSYS Prepaid uses this information to help administer this Website.

COOKIES

TSYS Prepaid may use a feature of your browser to place "cookies" on your computer. "Cookies" are small pieces of information that are stored by your browser on your computer's hard drive, that allow TSYS Prepaid to identify you and link you to your personalized Account. If you choose not to accept our cookie, you will still be able to use the functions of this Website, but TSYS Prepaid will not be able to store your ID Number for future use.

SHARING OF INFORMATION

The information we collect may be shared on an aggregate and statistical and/or depersonalized basis with Authorized Third Parties. Authorized Third Parties do not release this information, other than for transactional purposes, or utilize it for any promotional activities. TSYS Prepaid may disclose information we collect to the issuer of your account and card and other third parties designated by the issuer.

Aside from sharing your information with the issuer and Authorized Third Parties as discussed above, TSYS Prepaid does not provide your personal information to third parties without your permission. Additionally, we do not share the buying habits of individual accountholders with third parties. We only provide general statistics about accountholders to third parties. For example, we may reveal to a third party the number of accountholders that are interested in kayaking, but we will not provide any accountholder's name, address or other personal information to that third party.

You may wish to directly provide third parties with your personal information in order to receive merchandise. The issuer and third parties have their own privacy policies over which TSYS Prepaid exercises no control. Before providing personal information to third parties, you should refer to each third party's privacy policy for complete information about the collection and use of personal information on their website. Each third party's privacy policy, and not this Privacy Policy, governs how information that you provide directly to them is used. TSYS Prepaid has no responsibility for the privacy policies and other aspects of websites that TSYS Prepaid links to, including the content of those websites and any cookies those websites might deposit on your hard drive. TSYS Prepaid provides these links solely for the convenience of accountholders.

SECURITY

TSYS Prepaid believes that your personal information is extremely sensitive and deserves suitable safeguards so we strive to maintain the highest levels of security. In that regard, TSYS Prepaid conducts reviews of this Website's security protocols regularly. To ensure the security of this Website and information you provide to TSYS Prepaid, we employ the following safeguards:

Secure Socket Layer Technology. All Internet transactions are protected by Secure Socket Layer (SSL) encryption technology. Information that is protected by SSL cannot be decoded or read during transmission because it is encrypted on your computer, sent through the Internet as scrambled code, and decoded on our secure server. The Netscape Navigator, Microsoft Internet Explorer and America Online Web browsers each support SSL, and responsible websites use this protocol to protect user information. TSYS Prepaid never accepts or transmits sensitive information over the Internet without this security.

Firewalls. TSYS Prepaid stores information that you provide on a secure database. This information is accessed only to fulfill your requests and answer account-specific queries. TSYS Prepaid uses firewalls to restrict access to our secure servers to authorized persons and to block the entry of hackers and others with dishonorable intentions.

Limited Internal Access. Internally, TSYS Prepaid restricts access to personal information to employees, such as customer service representatives, who need the information to perform their jobs. These employees are limited in number and may only access this information when necessary to perform their duties. All employees are trained extensively about TSYS Prepaid´s security policies. An employee's failure to abide by these policies constitutes grounds for immediate dismissal.

Passwords. In connection with the use of your account card, you will have a user ID and a password to establish your identity. To access your account online, you must use your user ID and your password.

Card Verification Number. In an effort to prevent fraudulent use of your card, each card is assigned a CVN. A CVN is the last three digits added to your ID Number that is printed, and not embossed, on the reverse side of your card and can be found in or near the area designated for your signature. The CVN is a further means of identifying a holder of the card.

If you have any further questions concerning the security at this website, you can send an e-mail to support@accountholder.net.
