Information Collected and Its Use
Meritus Payment Solutions collects personally identifiable information when you register for an Meritus Payment Solutions account, and when you use certain Meritus Payment Solutions products and services. Meritus Payment Solutions may also receive personally identifiable information from its resellers and other business partners.
When you register with Meritus Payment Solutions, we ask for your contact information (such as your name, street address and email address), as well as certain information pertaining to your business, along with billing information such as a bank account and/or credit card number.
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 consumer has furnished the merchant or financial institution in placing the order. We do not acquire any information directly from consumers through the www.merituspayment.com Web site.
The personally identifiable information we acquire in processing payment transactions varies according to the nature of the transaction and the way in which merchants or financial institutions are using our payment services. It may include, for example, the amount of the transaction, the consumer’s name, credit card number and expiration date, checking account number, billing address, and shipping address.
Meritus Payment Solutions uses the information collected to fulfill your requests for certain products and services, to process payment transactions, to facilitate billing, and otherwise deliver the payment gateway services. We may also send merchants service announcements, newsletters, and periodic notices about specials, new products and services and products and services offered by Meritus Payment Solutions business partners. Personally identifiable consumer information is used to process payment transactions and for no other purpose.
Meritus Payment Solutions does not offer services or sell products to children. Meritus Payment Solutions does not request or knowingly collect personally identifiable contact information from anyone under the age of 13.

In the event that Meritus Payment Solutions is acquired, merchant account information may be one of the transferred assets.
Information security is critical to our business. We work to protect the security of your information during transmission by using Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) software, which encrypts information you input. We store information gathered on secure computers located in a locked data center. The number of employees involved in the management of the data center that have physical access to these computers is limited. We use firewalls and other security technology to prevent our computers from being accessed by unauthorized persons.
We also require that any personally identifiable consumer information sent to us by you be encrypted using SSL encryption.
It is important for you to protect against unauthorized access to your Login ID/password and to your computer. Be sure to sign off when finished using a computer, whether or not it is shared, and otherwise protect and periodically change the password used to access the Meritus Payment Solutions services.
