Phishing and Fraud.
At PointServ, safeguarding your personal information is a top priority. Part of our commitment is making you aware of popular identity theft and fraud scams and providing you with information to protect yourself. Although sometimes difficult to identify, you may receive hoax e-mails, such as phishing scams, that look authentic and appear to have been sent by a company or government agency you recognize. These e-mails ask you to provide or confirm your sensitive personal information by clicking on links. To entice you, they often claim an urgent or threatening condition concerning your account, or offer you a prize or reward. You should not reply or click on any links in the e-mail or provide any personal information without verifying that the e-mail is legitimate through another channel. PointServ does not solicit sensitive customer information via e-mail. If you receive an e-mail message that appears to come from us that requests such information, please forward it immediately to: email@example.com. We will make an effort to respond quickly to help lessen potential damage.
PointServ may use tools to recognize your visit and track your interactions with our technologies. Sometimes this tracking is necessary in order for us to provide you the service you requested, for example, to know if you are using a secure session or if you have the right to access certain data. Other times, we combine this information with that of other users to improve your and other customers' experience. Cookies and clear (not visible) graphics on Web sites, and mobile phone identifiers, are some examples of tools that give us this information. You have control over some of the information we collect and how we use it. Information on changing your browser settings to opt out of cookies and other tracking technologies can be found in your browser help files. Our advertising may employ cookies to recognize that you use PointServ services so we can present you with a relevant ad. If you click on an ad, we will recognize that and measure which ads are more effective.
When we log activity on our web site, we may collect information such as the date and time, your IP address, browser type and version, and pages you view. Web logs also record the site which you came from and any links you click on to leave our sites. We do not track URLs that you type into your browser, nor do we track you across the Internet once you leave our sites. We use your Web site activity to assist you by reducing your need to re-enter your data and to help us resolve technical support issues. We may also use this information to offer you a personalized Web experience, including offers to help you and to tailor our offerings to you. We may use device-printing technology on your connected computer or mobile device to recognize the device to detect and prevent fraudulent activity.
We never share personally identifiable information we collect using tracking technologies with any other organization for its own use.
Your Information and Other Companies
PointServ’s Use of Other Companies.
Sometimes PointServ may ask outside firms, or third parties, to help us provide services, such as designing a Web site, sending e-mails, registering a prospective domain name, or analyzing data. Our contracts with these third parties outline the appropriate use and handling of your information and prohibit them from using any of your personal information for purposes unrelated to the product or service they're providing. We require vendors to maintain the confidentiality of the information we provide to them. We may use these sources to supplement the information you give us. For example, we may validate your address using other sources. We use this data to help us maintain accuracy and provide you with better service.
Response to subpoenas and other legal requests.
PointServ may disclose, access, or report personal information when we believe, in good faith, we're required to do so by law or to protect our legal rights. We may also do this in connection with an investigation into a suspected violation involving a Terms of Service, fraud, intellectual property infringement, or other activity that may be illegal or expose us to legal liability. For example, we may be required to disclose personal information to cooperate with regulators or law enforcement authorities or to comply with a court order, subpoena, search warrant, or law enforcement request.
Reporting to Credit Bureaus.
We may report and share information about your account to credit bureaus, consumer reporting agencies and card associations.
