We understand that you care about how your information is used and shared when you enter it on our websites, www.bluesnap.com, or use BlueSnap’s payment services as a merchant or shopper, and this notice describes our privacy policy and practices.

BlueSnap respects each individual’s right to personal privacy. We will collect and use information through our website including registration forms, inquiry forms, product transaction forms, mobile and API services only in the ways disclosed in this statement.

Online payment transactions involve transfer of data across international borders, as well backing up of data at our secured data centers in the UK and USA.

By submitting your data directly or through a third party such as a merchant you are agreeing to such transfer, processing and storage.

BlueSnap’s Certification Under the EU-US Data Privacy Framework (EU-US DPF) and the UK Extension to the EU-US DPF

BlueSnap complies with the EU-US Data Privacy Framework program (EU-US DPF), the UK Extension to the EU-US DPF, and the Swiss-US Data Privacy Framework program (Swiss-US DPF) as set forth by the U.S. Department of Commerce.

BlueSnap has certified to the US Department of Commerce that it adheres to the EU-US Data Privacy Framework Principles (EU-US DPF Principles) with regard to the processing of personal data received from the European Union in reliance on the EU-U.S. DPF and from the United Kingdom (and Gibraltar) in reliance on the UK Extension to the EU-US DPF.

BlueSnap has certified to the US Department of Commerce that it adheres to the Swiss-US Data Privacy Framework program Principles (Swiss-US DPF Principles) with regard to the processing of personal data received from Switzerland in reliance on the Swiss-U.S. DPF. If there is any conflict between the terms in this privacy policy and the EU-U.S. DPF Principles and/or the Swiss-U.S. DPF Principles, the Principles shall govern.

The Federal Trade Commission has jurisdiction with enforcement authority over BlueSnap’s compliance with the EU-US Data Privacy Framework (EU-US DPF) and the UK Extension to the EU-US DPF, and the Swiss-US Data Privacy Framework (Swiss-US DPF).

To learn more about the Data Privacy Framework (DPF) program, and to view our certification, please visit https://www.dataprivacyframework.gov/.

In compliance with the EU-US Data Privacy Framework Principles, BlueSnap commits to resolve complaints about your privacy and our collection or use of your personal information transferred to the United States pursuant to the DPF Principles. European Union, Swiss and United Kingdom individuals with DPF inquiries or complaints should first contact:

[email protected].
Tel: +1 (781) 790-5013
Mailing Address: BlueSnap Corporate HQ, 800 South St, Suite 640, Waltham, MA

BlueSnap has further committed to refer unresolved privacy complaints under the DPF Principles to an independent dispute resolution mechanism, Data Privacy Framework Services, operated by BBBNational Programs. If you do not receive timely acknowledgment of your complaint, or if your complaint is not satisfactorily addressed, please visit https://bbbprograms.org/programs/all-programs/dpf-consumers/ProcessForConsumers for more information and to file a complaint. This service is provided free of charge to you.

If your DPF complaint cannot be resolved through the above channels, under certain conditions, you may invoke binding arbitration for some residual claims not resolved by other redress mechanisms. See https://www.dataprivacyframework.gov/s/article/G-Arbitration-Procedures-dpf?tabset-35584=2

The DPF Principles also provide that a participating organization has responsibility for the processing of personal information it receives under the DPF Principles and subsequently transfers to a third party acting as an agent on its behalf. Accordingly BlueSnap shall remain liable under the DPF Principles if such agent processes such personal information in a manner inconsistent with the DPF Principles, unless BlueSnap can prove that it is not responsible for the event giving rise to the damage.

Standard Contractual Clauses

BlueSnap and its international subsidiaries are also contractually committed with respect to data transfers from the EEA, UK and Switzerland to other countries through the use of the EU’s approved ‘Standard Contractual Clauses’ and the UK’s Standard Contractual Clauses Addendum (“SCCs”). BlueSnap is bound by the SCCs with respect to data transfers from the EEA, Switzerland and UK to the US. BlueSnap is committed to maintaining the principles of transparency, accountability and choice regarding the collection and use of your personal information.

BlueSnap Services and You

When using BlueSnap’s services, technologies, functions, website or applications, the terms of this policy will apply.

BlueSnap acts as a technology provider supplying secure online and mobile digital payment processing services to businesses known as merchants so that they can sell their goods and services to their shoppers both domestically and worldwide.

The personal information collected by BlueSnap depends on how you are using our services.

Individuals typically interface with BlueSnap in one of the following ways:

Site Visitor: If you are visiting our website for details about our products and services, you may be asked to enter your personal details on an online form to receive more information. Cookies may be used to track site usage to assist in product development or monitor behavior for marketing purposes. Visitors from the EU/EEA, Switzerland and UK may initially be asked to expressly consent to cookie usage. Certain interactions with Sales and Support staff may involve recording of conversations and in such situations you will have the option to accept or reject such recording.

Merchant: you may be a business customer that has consented to BlueSnap’s terms of service under a merchant or other formal agreement and use BlueSnap to conduct secure online sales or an individual in the employ of such a party. To set up a merchant account you will need to provide personal details, business data and identifying documentation to comply with KYC and AML requirements relating to the payments industry.

Shopper: You may be a business or consumer using BlueSnap’s secure online payment technologies to complete the purchase of goods and services from a merchant that has selected BlueSnap as its payments solution. Your own choice of payment method will usually determine what personal data is passed to BlueSnap to enable your payment transaction to take place. It could be name, address and credit/debit card details, electronic bank transfer information, or pay-wallet credentials if using a service such as PayPal, or tokenized data if using a service such as Apple Pay.

While such secure transactions may be completed in just a few seconds they are often complicated by the fact that live anti-fraud checks need to be conducted to verify that the actual card owner is generating the transaction. Data also has to be passed to the relevant payment processors; banks, payment card and payment account services may need to be notified; legal tax invoices generated, and transaction confirmations delivered; and this is dictated by the Shopper’s choice of payment method and selected merchant. Often these transactions may be international in nature, involving transfer of data across borders and continents. Some or all of these steps may all involve the transfer and sharing of personal data down a chain of service providers and third parties including merchant referrers, the storage of transaction records in accordance with regulatory or contractual requirements as well as the use of tracking cookies.

The relevant merchant, product supplier and shipping service may each need to receive personal data in order to facilitate the transaction and retain such data for their records in accordance with their own respective privacy policies. Shoppers may also have elected to pay in instalments using a ‘buy now pay later service’ that requires relevant personal data being shared with such service.

If a Shopper makes a purchase through a merchant that operates through a marketplace service this may involve some personal data being transmitted to both the marketplace and the merchant and their respective privacy policies will apply.

The Information BlueSnap Collects

The types of personal information we may obtain or you may choose to provide include:

Some of this information may be collected automatically by using technologies such as cookies and web beacons, when you interact with advertisements, mobile applications, sales pages, website pages and other digital applications. Often shoppers will provide information themselves when interacting with merchants to purchase goods and services.

Use of Information Collected

The information is collected to perform the following functions:

BlueSnap may also use information in other ways for which we provide specific notice of at the time of collection.

Site Visitor: As a guest we may set tracking and behavioral cookies when accessing BlueSnap site and landing pages. These may include IP, device, technical usage, time, language and geolocation data. If you decide to request more information, sign up for newsletters, set up a sales call or use support facilities you may be asked to provide name and contact details.

Shopper: To process payment and delivery of products and services BlueSnap receives your transaction information – this may include name, ID info, address, email, phone number, delivery details, card/bank/pay wallet data, currency, transaction amount, gender, gift recipients, donations, IP, technical usage, language, geolocation and relevant affiliate tracking details. Support and post purchase services, refund and chargeback processes may require the use of similar information. You might have access to a shopper account generated by your merchant seller that is powered by or accessed through BlueSnap, to review purchases and set preferences for instance related to subscription and recurring charge transactions and payment card details.

Merchants: Business-related information is collected including corporate structure, tax numbers, beneficial interests, beneficiaries, ID info, social security numbers, name, address, email, phone, banking details, references, financial information, locations, nationality, web site ownership, signatory information, staff access, PCI records, technical details, IP, verification and data relating to PCI/ KYC/AML/Transaction fraud checks, affiliate referral tracking details.

International Entities

BlueSnap’s services enable merchants to sell to shoppers across the world. This sometimes requires BlueSnap to provide services through specific legal entities. BlueSnap Inc., is based in the USA, and its affiliate BlueSnap Payment Services Ireland Ltd., is a regulated payments institution based in Ireland offering payment services across the EU/EEA. BlueSnap Payment Services Ltd. is a regulated UK payments institution offering payment services to merchants in the UK. BlueSnap Enterprise Canada ULC offers payment services to Canadian merchants. BlueSnap Australia Pty Limited offers payment services to Australian merchants and BlueSnap Payment Services Israel Limited provides payment services to merchants based in Israel. Additional BlueSnap entities may be added and shall automatically be covered by this Privacy Policy.

How and Where Information Is Stored

BlueSnap maintains administrative, technical and physical safeguards designed to protect the personal information provided or collected against accidental, unlawful or unauthorized destruction, loss, alteration, access, disclosure or misuse. Data is also routinely backed up at secure locations in the UK and the US in accordance with standard industry practice. We follow generally accepted standards to protect the personal information submitted to us, both during transmission and once we receive it. Payment information is secured and protected in accordance with the Level 1 standards of the PCI-DSS, the definitive security certification of the payment card industry. However, no method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure. Therefore, we cannot guarantee its absolute security. If you have any further questions about privacy or security, or have reason to believe your data security has been compromised please contact us immediately by sending an email to: [email protected].

The international nature of BlueSnap’s services means that personal data may be transferred beyond your national borders when you use BlueSnap’s services or purchase from or sell to persons or entities outside your country. By using such services you are deemed to understand and accept that data may be subject to such cross-border transfers.

How long data is retained

BlueSnap stores personal information for as long as necessary to fulfill the purpose for which the personal information was collected and as required or authorized by law. We take measures to delete or permanently de-identify personal information as required by law or if no longer required for the purpose for which it was collected. Certain data relating to transaction records particularly billing and invoice information may be required to be safeguarded for significant periods of time in accordance with standard tax and accounting law and practices, or to enable refund and chargeback requests to be processed on behalf of shoppers.

Sharing of Personal Information

BlueSnap does not sell or otherwise disclose personal information we collect about you except as disclosed in this Privacy Policy or as may be disclosed to you at the time information is collected.

BlueSnap may share personal information collected with its subsidiaries and other BlueSnap entities that process payment transactions as well as relevant merchants, fraud prevention services, card and alternative payment services, relevant banks, payment processors/acquirers and business partners.

BlueSnap may share certain information with service providers who provide or perform services on behalf of BlueSnap. We authorize such services providers to use or disclose such information only as necessary to perform services on our behalf or to comply with legal requirements. Such entities are required by contract and/or law to safeguard the privacy and security of personal information processed on our behalf. We may also share personal information with other parties with your express consent.

Personal data used with respect to payment transactions involving individuals of the EU/EEA, Switzerland and UK often needs to be passed to other parties as part of the transaction process. Transfers of data may be through APIs, email, and other formats, and may be bi-directional. BlueSnap takes steps to ensure that such parties are committed to compliance with applicable data law including the GDPR and that any additional Data Processors or Sub-Processors used are retained under a contractual duty of compliance and are able to respond to data subject access requests. In certain situations, BlueSnap and its subsidiaries might be deemed to be acting on the instruction of other transaction services or together with such parties, in which case BlueSnap shall itself be obligated to act in a manner compliant with applicable data law.

Certain Merchants might use checkout and other systems as part of the payment transaction process that might be integrated with BlueSnap. Accordingly personal information that you provide to such services either directly or through your selected Merchant might be passed to BlueSnap.  BlueSnap treats such personal information in accordance with this Privacy Policy, however other entities might have their own policies and these should be thoroughly checked by you.

BlueSnap may use third-party service providers, for example to provide you with support when using our site and including the use of live chat software. When you sign up for our services we will share your personal information only as necessary for the third party to provide that service. Personal information collected relating to marketing and Merchant underwriting functions may be stored and processed on secure compliant cloud-based services provided by third parties to BlueSnap. Such service providers are contractually required by BlueSnap to act in compliance with relevant data law.

Merger, sale and/or transfer of corporate assets or reorganization

BlueSnap may transfer information as part of any corporate merger, sale, acquisition, transfer or assets or reorganization without notice. Such transfer will be on the basis of the continuation of all privacy rights set out in this document. You will be notified via email and/or a prominent notice on our website of any change in BlueSnap ownership or uses of your personal information, as well as any choices you may have regarding your personal information.

Compliance with court orders & law enforcement agencies

BlueSnap may be required to disclose personal information without notification in response to a lawful request by public authorities, including to meet national security requirements, or in order to comply with a legal requirement, legislation, regulation, court order or subpoena, or when we believe in good faith that disclosure is necessary to protect our rights, prevent harm of financial loss, protect your safety or the safety of others or investigate fraud or cooperate with law enforcement or government agencies, or in connection with an investigation of suspected or actual fraudulent or illegal activity.

EU/EEA, UK & Swiss Data Privacy Law

With respect to data protection legislation in the European Economic Area, UK and Switzerland including the GDPR, BlueSnap acts as ‘Data Processor’ concerning shopper information of EU/EEA/UK/Swiss-based persons that is transmitted to BlueSnap either through a merchant or directly in order to process a purchase transaction.

When preserving transaction records in accordance with regulatory or industry requirements BlueSnap may act in such circumstances as ‘Data Controller’.

When BlueSnap sets up an account for a merchant we are required to conduct to various payment security, anti-money laundering, credit and KYC checks. When managing such personal data with respect to EEA/UK/Switzerland-based individuals BlueSnap acts as a ‘Data Controller’.

The UK-based subsidiary, BlueSnap Payment Services Limited is authorized by the UK’s Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) under the Payments Services Regulations 2009/2017 reference no. 629580, for the provision of payment services in the UK. The Irish-based subsidiary BlueSnap Payment Services Ireland Limited is authorized by the Central Bank of Ireland under the EU Payment Services Regulations 2018 reference no. C431532 to provide payment services in Ireland and other EU countries.  BlueSnap Payment Services Ireland Limited is the representative for all other BlueSnap entities with respect to the provisions of the GDPR. Privacy matters concerning this company should be directed to BlueSnap through email at: [email protected]

EU/EEA/UK-based users will be asked to expressly consent to provision of personal information or initial setting of cookies when visiting BlueSnap web properties so that there is a clear legal basis for processing such data. In other cases personal information will be processed legally by virtue of the performance of the contractual obligations relating to a merchant and/or shopper, BlueSnap’s legitimate interest, legal obligation or the defense or preservation of BlueSnap’s legal rights.

BlueSnap complies with legal requirements to provide adequate safeguards for the transfers of personal data outside the EU/EEA/UK and Switzerland, and as indicated above is also currently certified under the Data Privacy Framework.

Individual users from the EU/EEA or other regions with laws governing data collection and use, should note that you are agreeing to the transfer of your personal information to the United States, UK and other jurisdictions in which BlueSnap may operate. By providing your personal information with respect to a transaction or express consent mechanism, you consent to any transfer and processing in accordance with this Policy.

We will also provide an individual opt-out or opt-in choice before we share their data with third parties other than our agents, or before we use it for a purpose other than which it was originally collected or subsequently authorized.  To limit the use and disclosure of your personal information, please submit a written request to [email protected].

California & US State Privacy Rights

Residents of the State of California have additional statutory rights afforded by the California Civil Code, including the California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018, the “CCPA”, and as from 1st January 2023 these rights have been extended to cover data transfers in connection with business to business matters and employees. In addition, Virginia (effective January 1, 2023), Colorado (effective July 1, 2023), Connecticut (July 1, 2023), and Utah (December 31, 2023) have passed State laws extending similar privacy rights to consumers.

As the rules relating to some of these laws are still to be finalized, BlueSnap shall continue to monitor the situation and update this notice and internal practices accordingly.

California and relevant US State residents should read these provisions in addition to the previous sections of this Policy.

In the vast majority of cases BlueSnap will be acting as a service provider to a merchant from which a shopper has purchased goods and services. In such situations you should first contact your merchant to exercise your statutory rights. If necessary the merchant will then contact BlueSnap to assist in actioning your request.

 In some exceptional cases relating to sales of goods and services BlueSnap will be deemed to be acting as a’ merchant of record’ and you should contact BlueSnap directly.

Please note that BlueSnap may still need to retain certain data to complete transactions, perform refunds, maintain underwriting records or comply with legal obligations, tax and accounting requirements, etc. If this is the case BlueSnap will advise accordingly.

BlueSnap may have collected personal data from you through an information form or phone call and in such cases you should exercise your rights directly through BlueSnap.

The CCPA grants California residents the following statutory rights relating to personal information:
