Please read the MSC Privacy Statement below and also any supplementary information at the end of this statement for additional details about particular MSC sites and services that you may use.
MSC is a corporate audience web site, intended for users 18 years and older. Personal information of all users is collected, used and disclosed as described in this Privacy Statement.
Collection of your Personal Information
MSC may from time to time collect personal information, such as your e-mail address, name, home or work address or telephone number. MSC may also collect demographic information, such as your ZIP code, age, gender, preferences, interests and favorites. Information collected by MSC may be combined with information obtained from other MSC services and other companies.
All of the registration information you provide will be stored by MSC.
Use of your Personal Information MSC collects and uses your personal information to operate MSC and deliver the services you have requested. These services may include the display of customized content and advertising based upon the information MSC has collected. In order to provide services in conjunction with other MSC products or services, personal information collected by MSC may be accessed and used by other MSC services as necessary to provide such services. Any use of such information within MSC will remain subject to the limitations of this privacy statement.
MSC also uses your personal information to inform you of other products or services available from Merchant Service Center and its affiliates. MSC may also send you surveys regarding current services or potential new services that may be offered.
MSC does not sell, rent or lease its customer lists to third parties. MSC may, from time to time, contact you on behalf of external business partners about a particular offering that may be of interest to you. In those cases, your personal information (e-mail, name, address, telephone number) is not transferred to the third party. MSC does not use or disclose sensitive personal information, such as race, religion, or political affiliations, without your explicit consent.
We occasionally hire other companies to provide limited services on our behalf, such as handling the processing and delivery of mailings, providing customer support, processing transactions, or performing statistical analysis of our services. We will only provide those companies the personal information they need to deliver the service. They are required to maintain the confidentiality of your information and are prohibited from using that information for any other purpose.
MSC may access and/or disclose your personal information if required to do so by law or in the good faith belief that such action is necessary to: (a) conform to the edicts of the law or comply with legal process served on MSC or the site; (b) protect and defend the rights or property of Merchant Service Center, including its MSC family of Web sites; or (c) act in urgent circumstances to protect the personal safety of users of MSC services or members of the public.
Personal information collected on this site may be stored and processed in the United States or any other country in which Merchant Service Center or its affiliates, subsidiaries or agents maintain facilities, and by using this site, you consent to any such transfer of information outside of your country. MSC abides by the safe harbor framework as set forth by the U.S. Department of Commerce regarding the collection, use, and retention of data from the European Union.
Control of your Personal Information
MSC offers its customers choices for the collection, use and sharing of personal information. You may choose not to receive marketing material from MSC or on behalf of external third party business partners. You may also stop the delivery of future promotional e-mail from MSC by following the specific instructions in the e-mail you receive. The instructions explain how to stop receiving such e-mails.
There are some MSC services that send out periodic e-mails informing you of technical service issues, product surveys, new feature announcements and news about MSC products and services. You will not be able to unsubscribe to these mailings, as they are considered a part of the service you have chosen.
Security of your Personal Information
MSC is committed to protecting the security of your personal information. We use a variety of security technologies and procedures to help protect your personal information from unauthorized access, use, or disclosure. For example, we store the personal information you provide on computer systems with limited access, which are located in controlled facilities. When we transmit highly confidential information (such as a credit card number) over the Internet, we protect it through the use of encryption, such as the Secure Socket Layer (SSL) protocol.
