Privacy Notice

Last Updated: January 3, 2024

OpenEdge Payments, LLC d/b/a Global Payments Integrated (“Global Payments Integrated”) respects your concerns about privacy. Except where otherwise indicated, this Website Privacy Notice (“Notice”) describes how we collect and process personal information from and about users of our websites, forums and blogs (“Sites”) and mobile applications (“Apps”) in the course of our business activities.

For the purpose of this Notice, “GPI,” “OpenEdge,” “we,” “us,” and “our” refer to Global Payments Integrated and its parent, subsidiaries, and affiliates, as the context requires. Our privacy practices vary depending on the services we provide and the country-specific requirements for the countries in which we operate. For some products and services, where required, we will provide additional privacy notices before collecting your personal information. Global Payments Integrated maintains specific privacy notices for job applicants, employees, and contractors. If you are a job applicant, employee, or contractor and need a copy of the applicable privacy notice, please contact us at [email protected].

Please read this Notice carefully. If you have any questions, you may contact us at [email protected] or by using the methods provided in the “Contact Us” section below.

Global Payments Integrated provides products and services to commercial and non-commercial enterprises (our “Customers”) including payment card processing, ACH processing, gift card processing, point-of-sale terminal management and support, merchant accounting, funds transfer, analytics and reputation management tools, marketing, and customer self-service solutions. We also provide a digital customer experience platform to software partner Customers, which allows them to streamline the customer service process in the products they offer to their merchant customers. As a part of our payment processing function, we routinely collect and retain personal information about our Customers and the third parties with whom our Customers do business. For our Customers, information about disclosures, transfers and other processing of personal information as part of our payment processing function is set out in their agreement with us and the documentation provided to them at or before onboarding and is outside of the scope of this Notice, which relates only to information we collect through our Sites.

In some circumstances, Global Payments Integrated may collect personal information from users of our Services, Sites, and Apps who might be our Customers, prospective Customers, or our Customer’s end users (“End Users”) who engage with our Sites or Services as part of the Services we provide to our Customers.

Because Global Payments Integrated’s relationship with End Users is indirect, we process such End User personal information only for the purposes of providing the Services to our Customers, and in accordance with our Customer’s instructions. If you are an End User who has a relationship with one of our Customers and you have a question about how personal information about you is collected, used, or disclosed, or would like to exercise any rights you may have with respect to personal information about you, please contact the Customer directly. Please be aware that not all of the information in this Notice will be directly applicable to our handling of personal information about you. This Notice provides an overview of the possible circumstances in which we may interact with personal information. If you have any questions about our processing of personal information about you, please contact us at [email protected].

We may disclose anonymized or aggregated data to our global affiliates and with other third parties. This Notice does not restrict our use or sharing of any anonymized or aggregated information.

Where we maintain or use de-identified information, we will continue to maintain and use the de-identified information only in a de-identified fashion and will not attempt to re-identify the information.

Sources of Personal Information

Information that you provide to us: We collect personal information that you provide to us when you set up an account with us, use our services, or communicate with us. For example, if you register for an online account with us, we may request your name, contact information and business information. Providing us with personal information is voluntary, and you can always choose not to provide certain information, but then you may not be able to take advantage of or participate in some of the services.

Information collected from third parties: We may collect information about you from third parties in the course of providing our services. For example, we may collect personal information like your name and contact information from a Customer, referral partner, or other third-party in order to contact you about the services we provide. We may also receive business related information about you from third party companies that supplement our business customer records with, for example, professional information.

You have the ability to express your preference regarding some of the ways we collect information through technology in some of our services (see “Cookies and Other Tracking Technologies” for more information).

  • For compliance with applicable laws and/or regulations and as otherwise required or permitted by applicable laws and/or regulations.

Our Legal Basis for Collecting and Using Personal Information

Our legal basis for collecting, using and storing personal information may depend on the specific service with which you are engaging. In most cases, when we process personal information on behalf of our Customer, our legal basis is the performance of a contract. In some contexts, such as when we engage in direct marketing, our legal basis for processing personal information is consent. When we rely on legitimate interest as the legal basis for our processing of personal information, we have procedures in place to ensure that we are balancing our interests and rights against the impact to the individual and their applicable statutory or fundamental rights.

How We Disclose the Personal Information We Collect

Except as otherwise specified, we may disclose any of the categories of personal information in the manner and for the purposes described below:

  • With Global Payments Integrated affiliates where such disclosure is necessary to provide the services or to manage our business (see “Our Relationship with Affiliate Companies” below).
  • With service providers whose systems, applications, products or services help us to provide the services. For example, we disclose personal information with information technology (IT) service providers who help manage our back office systems or administer our Sites and Apps.
  • With third-party service providers who provide services to us, including (without limitation) legal, accounting, audit, consulting and other professional service providers, and providers of other services related to our business.
  • With referral partners if you were referred to Global Payments Integrated for services via such partners. For example, if you were referred to us by an independent services organization, we may disclose information to the referring partner in accordance with our business relationship with you and that partner, consistent with any privacy notice shared with you by either party at the time of the collection of your personal information.
  • With logistics service providers to enable the delivery of packages to individuals.
  • With advertisers and analytics providers in order to help us measure our ad campaigns and better understand how individuals interact with our Sites and Apps.
  • With other third parties to whom you direct us to disclose defined categories personal information.
  • When we believe disclosure is necessary or appropriate to comply with laws or respond to lawful requests and legal process; to investigate, prevent, or take action regarding actual or suspected illegal activity, fraud or other wrongdoing; to enforce our agreements, policies, and terms of use; and to protect or defend the rights, safety or property of Global Payments Integrated and its affiliates, users of the services or any person.
  • To third parties in connection with any proposed or actual reorganization, merger, sale, joint venture, assignment, transfer or other disposition of all or any portion of our assets or stock (including in connection with any bankruptcy or similar proceedings).

Our Relationship with Affiliate Companies (Including Sharing and Cross-Border Transfers)

Subject to your consent if required by law, we may appoint an affiliate company to process personal information in a service provider role for and on our behalf. In most cases, we will remain responsible for that company’s processing of personal information pursuant to applicable data privacy laws.

Because our affiliate companies are located around the globe, personal information may be transferred to and stored in the United States or in another country outside of the country in which you reside, which may be subject to different standards of data protection than your country of residence.

We will take appropriate steps to transfer personal information in accordance with applicable law, such as transferring personal information to countries that are recognized as providing an adequate level of legal protection or where alternative adequate arrangements are in place to protect your privacy rights.

Login Details and Your Responsibility

Subject to your consent if required by law, we will collect and process personal information as necessary to set up and administer your sign up to, and use of, the log in facility available on our Sites and Apps. We will use “cookies” to “remember” the machine or other device you use to access our Sites (see “Cookies and Other Tracking Technologies” below). Please remember that if we contact you, we will never ask you for your password in an unsolicited email, message or phone call. If you choose to use the log in facility available on our Sites and Apps, you are required to adhere to the security procedures we establish in the documentation we provide you as part of the services.

Managing Your Preferences

Subject to your consent if required by applicable law, we may use personal information about our Customers to provide them with direct marketing information about our products and services as well as those of our global affiliates and third parties. Our direct marketing may occur through email, telephone, post or SMS or such other method(s) as may become relevant.

We will take steps to ensure that any direct marketing from us and which is sent by electronic means will provide a simple means for our Customers to stop further communications, in accordance with applicable law. For example, in emails, we may provide Customers with an “unsubscribe” link, or an email address to which Customers can send an opt-out request. In addition, if we need your consent for direct marketing communications under applicable law, and if you provide your consent, you will be able to change your mind at any time. Please note that if you opt out of receiving marketing-related communications from us, we may still send you administrative, transactional, or information messages, from which you cannot opt out.

Notice of Financial Incentives/Bona Fide Loyalty Program

Our services enable our Customers to create loyalty programs. The loyalty programs may provide certain perks, such as rewards and exclusive offers. The loyalty programs may also provide promotional campaigns, alone or in conjunction with third-party partners. The terms and conditions of the loyalty program are set by the Customer. Because the loyalty programs involve the collection of personal information and the offering of discounts or other incentives, however, they may be interpreted as offering a “financial incentive” in exchange for your agreement to permit the processing of your personal information. In that case, the value of your personal information is determined by the Customer in relation to the value of the free or discounted products, services, or other benefits that the Customer chooses to provide as part of the loyalty program, less the expense related to the offering of those products, services, or other benefits to loyalty program participants. You may opt-in to a loyalty program by following the steps explained to you by the relevant Customer, and you may withdraw or opt out of a loyalty program at any time by following the procedures established for that purpose or by contacting the Customer directly. If you ask the relevant Customer to delete your personal data (see “Your Legal Rights” below), please be advised that the deletion of your data may make it impossible for the Customer to provide the benefits associated with the program.

If you are an End User who interacts with our Sites or Apps for the purpose of engaging with our Customers and have questions about legal rights you may have with respect to personal information collected by our Customer, please consult the Customer with whom you have a relationship.

If you interact with our Sites and Apps for the purpose of engaging in a direct relationship with us, subject to certain exceptions, and in some cases dependent upon the processing activity we are undertaking, you have the right to:

  • Know whether we process personal information about you;
  • Know how the personal information is used;
  • Access, request and receive the personal information we have collected in a portable manner;
  • Opt out of having personal information sold, “shared,” or used for certain profiling activities;
  • Request that we correct inaccuracies in personal information about you; and
  • Request that we delete personal information about you.

You may contact us using the information in the “Contact Us” section of this Notice for additional information about how to exercise your rights. In addition, if you are a resident of California, Colorado, the European Union, the United Kingdom, Quebec, or other jurisdiction with similar laws, please see the “Region-Specific Information” section below for further details on how to exercise your privacy rights.

Data Security and Data Retention

We maintain administrative, technical and physical safeguards designed to protect the personal information you provide against accidental, unlawful or unauthorized destruction, loss, alteration, access, disclosure or use.

We retain the personal information we collect for different periods of time depending on what it is and how we use it. In some contexts, we will provide additional information about retention as you use the services. When we collect personal information, we will retain it only for as long as is necessary to complete the legitimate business or legal purposes for which we collected it. The criteria used to determine our retention periods include:

  • The length of time we have an ongoing relationship with you and provide services to you or our Customer, for example, for as long as you have an account with us or continue to use our services, and the length of time thereafter during which we may have a legitimate need to reference personal information to address issues that may arise;
  • Whether there is a contractual obligation to which we are subject, for example, our contracts with our Customers may specify a certain period of time during which we are required to maintain the information on behalf of our Customers;
  • Whether there is a legal obligation to which we are subject, for example, certain laws require us to keep records of your transactions for a certain period of time before we can delete them; and
  • Whether retention is advisable in light of our legal position, such as in regard to applicable statutes of limitations, litigation or regulatory investigations.

Cookies and Other Tracking Technologies

A “cookie” is a text file that is stored to your browser when you visit a website.

Unique device identifiers like IP address or UDID recognize a visitor’s computer or other device used to access the internet. Unique device identifiers are used alone and in conjunction with cookies and other tracking technologies for the purpose of “remembering” computers or other devices used to access the Sites and Apps. We also gather statistical information about the use of our services in order to continually improve their design and functionality, understand how they are used, and assist us with resolving questions regarding them.

We may also use other technologies like pixels or tags that allow us to measure responses to our email communications.

Cookies can be classified by duration and by source:

  • Duration. The Sites use both “session” and “persistent” cookies. Session cookies are temporary; they terminate when you close your browser or otherwise end your “active” browsing session. Persistent cookies remember you on subsequent visits. Persistent cookies are not deleted when you close your browser, and they will remain on your computer or other device unless you choose to delete them (see below for “How to Delete or Block Cookies”).
  • Source. Cookies can be “first-party” or “third-party” cookies, which means that they are either issued by or on behalf of Global Payments Integrated or by a third-party operator of another website. For an example of a third-party cookie, our Sites may contain features like videos hosted by other companies, which would set a cookie that can be read by the host. Our Sites may use both first-party and third-party cookies.

The cookies that we may use fall into the following categories:

  • Strictly Necessary Cookies. These cookies are necessary for the website to function and cannot be switched off in our systems. They are usually only set in response to actions taken by you such as logging in or filling in forms. You can set your browser to block or alert you about these cookies, but blocking them may impede the functionality of the Sites.
  • Performance Cookies. These cookies allow us to count visits and traffic sources so we can measure and improve the performance of our site. They help us to know which pages are the most and least popular and see how visitors move around the site. All information these cookies collect is aggregated. If you do not allow these cookies we will not know when you have visited our site, and will not be able to monitor its performance.
  • Functional Cookies. These cookies enable the Sites to provide enhanced functionality and personalization. They may be set by us or by third-party providers whose services we have added to our pages. If you do not allow these cookies then some of these services may not function properly.
  • Targeting Cookies. On Customer-facing Sites only, we may set targeting cookies. These cookies may be set through our Sites by our advertising partners. They may be used by those companies to build a profile of your interests and show you relevant advertisements on other sites. They are based on uniquely identifying your browser and internet device. If you do not allow these cookies, you will experience less targeted advertising.

How to Delete or Block Cookies

We do not currently respond to browser Do-Not-Track signals. If you do not want information collected through the use of cookies, you can use the Cookie Settings banner or icon on the Site to make selections about the use of cookies. Additionally, most browsers allow you to automatically decline cookies or be given the choice of declining or accepting a particular cookie (or cookies) from a particular website. You may also refer to http://www.allaboutcookies.org/manage-cookies/index.html. If, however, you do not accept cookies, you may experience some inconvenience in your use of our services. You also may not receive advertising from us that are relevant to your interests and needs.

Unless otherwise disclosed in a specific notice, and subject to your consent where required by applicable law, we do not sell your personal information to third parties for monetary compensation. To the extent that we share your personal information with third parties for cross-context behavioral advertising, we will implement features within the Services that enable you to see a list of the entities with which the personal information is shared and which enable you to express your preferences. You can find additional information about how those third parties use personal information in the applicable third party privacy notice.

We do not knowingly sell or “share” (for purposes of cross-context behavioral advertising) the personal information, including the sensitive personal information, of minors under 16 years of age.

The Sites and Apps use cookies, including some cookies that are created by other companies and placed on your browser when you visit our website. We use those cookies to improve your experience and to gather information about our customers and the performance of our website. However, the companies who provide those cookies to us also have access to the data collected through them, and they may use that data for targeted advertising purposes. Our use of those third-party cookies could therefore be considered a “share” of your personal information under California law or processing for targeted advertising under other privacy laws. If you are a resident of California or another jurisdiction with similar laws, that means you have the right to opt out. If you have not done so already, you can opt out of the placement of all non-necessary cookies by adjusting your Cookie Settings.

We do not use sensitive personal information beyond these purposes.
