Card Payment Service
In the course of processing a payment transaction, we typically receive from the merchant or a financial institution information related to the transaction. This normally includes information about the payment that a user has furnished the merchant or financial institution in placing the registration, subscription or order. We do not directly acquire any financial information from users through www.essociatesgroup.com. (To review our credit card company’s privacy statement, go to http://www.quickbooks.com/.)
We occasionally partner with other outside parties to provide specific services. When the user signs up for these services, we will share names or other contact information that is necessary for the third party to provide these services. These parties are not allowed to use personally identifiable information except for the purpose of providing these services.
We partner with specific trade professional associations to provide access to association memberships. When the user signs up for this opportunity, we will share names or other contact information that is necessary for the association(s) to provide this benefit. These associations are not allowed to use personally identifiable information except for the purpose of providing access to memberships.
This web site contains links to other sites. Please be aware that Essociates Group, Inc. is not responsible for the privacy practices of such other sites. We encourage our users to be aware when they leave our site and to read the privacy statements of each and every web site that collects personally identifiable information. This privacy statement applies solely to information collected by this web site.
From time-to-time our site requests information from users via surveys or contests. Participation in these surveys or contests is completely voluntary and the user therefore has a choice whether or not to disclose this information. Information requested may include contact information (such as name and company address), and demographic information (such as ZIP code, age level). Contact information will be used to notify the winners and award prizes. Survey information will be used for purposes of monitoring or improving the use and satisfaction of this site. Any other survey or contest that deviates from this stated policy will explicitly state this from the survey or contest page.
This website takes every precaution to protect our users' information. When users submit sensitive information via the website, that information is protected both online and off-line.
When our email invoice asks users to enter sensitive information (such as credit card number and/or social security number), that information is encrypted and protected with SSL (Secured Socket Layer).
We do everything in our power to protect user-information off-line. All of our users' information, not just the sensitive information mentioned above, is restricted in our offices. Only employees who need the information to perform a specific job (for example, our billing clerk or a customer service representative) are granted access to personally identifiable information. The servers that we store personally identifiable information on are kept in a secure environment.
If you have any questions about the security at our website, you can send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
If a user's personally identifiable information changes (such as your ZIP code), or if a user no longer desires our service, we will endeavor to provide a way to correct, update or remove that user's personal data provided to us. This can usually be done by emailing email@example.com or by calling 913.284.6573.
Essociates Group, Inc. reserves the right to modify or amend this privacy statement at any time and for any reason. If there are material changes to this statement or in how Essociates Group, Inc. will use personally identifiable information, we will post notice on this Privacy Statement page prior to implementing the change.
