CardFlight Privacy Policy

Effective Date March 31, 2014, updated May 1, 2024

CardFlight, Inc. (“CardFlight”, “we”, “our” or “us”) collects information about you when you visit, access or use, as applicable, our websites, products, services, or mobile applications (collectively, the “Services”). We receive information about you from various sources, including: (i) when you request information regarding the Services from our sales and/or customer support team (whether by telephone, email or text); (ii) if you register for the Services, by submitting an application or creating a user account on the Services (your “Account”); (iii) your use of the Services generally; and (iv) from business partners and third party websites and services. This Privacy Policy not only explains how and why we use information that we collect about you, but also how you can access, update or otherwise take control of your personal information.

What does this privacy policy cover?

This Privacy Policy covers the treatment of user information (“User Information”), which may include User Content (defined below), personally identifiable information (“Personal Information”), and Financial Information (defined below), gathered in the course of providing the Services or when you use or access or request information regarding the Services. This Privacy Policy also covers our treatment of any User Information that our business partners share with us or that we share with our business partners.

This Privacy Policy applies to all information we collect through or in connection with our Services, even if you have not submitted an application or signed up for an Account.

This Privacy Policy does not apply to the practices of third parties that we do not own or control, including but not limited to any third party websites, services and applications (“Third Party Services”) that you elect to access through the Service or to individuals that we do not manage or employ. Third Party Services may also include our business partners, such as resellers, through whom other users of our Services, such as merchants, access and/or receive our Services. While we attempt to facilitate access only to those Third Party Services that share our respect for your privacy, we cannot take responsibility for the content or privacy policies of those Third Party Services. We encourage you to carefully review the privacy policies of any Third Party Services you access.

What information do we collect?

We collect the following types of information from users of our Services. Users include: (i) visitors of our website, (ii) any person or entity that uses the Services to make or receive payments, including Account holders and their employees, independent contractors or other authorized representatives (as applicable), (iii) any person or entity requesting information about the Services, or (iv) any customer who authorizes a payment card transaction through the Services.

Information you give us:
We collect any information you provide in relation to the Services.  For example, when you request information regarding the Services from our sales and/or customer support team or when you submit an application or create an Account, you will provide information that could be Personal Information, such as your contact information, username, password and email address. Additionally, we may request Financial Information (as defined below) from you while setting up your Account and/or throughout the course of providing you with the Services. You acknowledge that this information may be personal to you, and by providing Personal Information to us, you allow others, including us, to identify you and therefore may not be anonymous. We may use your contact information to send you information about our Services and for other internal purposes (including sending your contact information to third parties to obtain similar referrals). You may unsubscribe from some types of messages regarding our Services through your Account settings, although we, regardless, reserve the right to contact you when we believe it is necessary, such as for account recovery purposes.

Transaction information:
If you use our Services to make or receive payments, we collect information about the transaction, such as the time and location of the transactions, the payment amounts, and additional details about the transaction. We also may collect information about the devices and payment methods used to complete the transactions.

If you use our Services to make a purchase of products or services, we collect your Personal Information when you authorize the transaction or request a receipt of the transaction. 

User content:
Some features of the Services allow you to provide content to the Services, such as written comments or images you post or upload to the Services (“User Content”). All User Content submitted by you to the Services may be retained by us indefinitely, even after you terminate your Account. We may continue to disclose such content to third parties in a manner that does not reveal Personal Information, as described in this Privacy Policy.

Financial information:
In order to provide the Services, we may collect financial information, such as bank account information, payment method information (card number, type, expiration date or other financial information), and transaction information (collectively, “Financial Information”), from you and/or your customers (if applicable). We may also ask you to provide some of your Financial Information during the account registration process. We also may receive Financial Information from Third Party Services that help us to provide the Services to you.

We collect, store, and process this information using industry-standard security measures. We will only use and disclose Financial Information as needed to provide you, and if applicable your customers, with the Services.

If you make a purchase of products or services through the Services, information about your payment method may be collected and stored either by us or our third party payment processing company (the “Payment Processor”).  Use and storage of that information by a Payment Processor is governed by the Payment Processor’s applicable terms of service and privacy policy.

Location information:
If you access the Services on a mobile device, we may receive information about the location of the device through which you access the Services. Your mobile device operating system will prompt you before allowing us to collect your location information to ask for your consent. If you do not see the prompt, or if you subsequently decide you would like to opt out of such collection, you may do so by changing the appropriating settings in your mobile device. However, please note that opting out may affect your ability to use some or all of the Services.

IP Address Information, Device Information, and Other Information Collected Automatically:
We automatically receive and record information from your web browser when you interact with the Services, including your IP address and cookie information. This information is used for fighting spam/malware and also to facilitate collection of data concerning your interaction with the Services (e.g., what links you have clicked on).

Generally, the Services automatically collect usage information, such as the number and frequency of visitors. We may use this data in aggregate form, that is, as a statistical measure, but not in a manner that would identify you personally. This type of aggregate data enables us and third parties authorized by us to figure out how often individuals use parts of the Services so that we can analyze and improve them.

We may collect device-specific information from users who access our Services from their mobile devices. Device information may include but is not limited to unique device identifiers, network information, and hardware model, as well as information about how the device interacts with our Services.

Email communications:
We may receive a confirmation when you open an email from us or click on a link in an email we send. We use this confirmation to improve our customer service.

Information containing cookies:
Cookies are pieces of text that may be provided to your computer through your web browser when you access a website. Your browser stores cookies in a manner associated with each website you visit. We use cookies to enable our servers to recognize your web browser and tell us how and when you visit our websites and otherwise use the Services through the Internet.

Our cookies do not, by themselves, contain Personal Information, and we do not combine the general information collected through cookies with other Personal Information to tell us who you are. As noted, however, we do use cookies to identify that your web browser has accessed aspects of the Services and may associate that information with your Account if you have one.

Most browsers have an option for turning off the cookie feature, which will prevent your browser from accepting new cookies, as well as (depending on the sophistication of your browser software) allowing you to decide on acceptance of each new cookie in a variety of ways. We strongly recommend that you leave cookies active, because they enable you to take advantage of the most attractive features of the Services.

This Privacy Policy covers our use of cookies only and does not cover the use of cookies by third parties. We do not control when or how third parties place cookies on your computer. For example, third party websites to which a link points may set cookies on your computer.

Information Related to Advertising and the Use of Web Beacons:
To support and enhance the Services, we may serve advertisements, and also allow third party advertisements, through the Services. These advertisements are sometimes targeted and served to particular users and may come from third party companies called “ad networks.” Ad networks include third party ad servers, ad agencies, ad technology vendors and research firms.

Advertisements served through the Services may be targeted to users who fit a certain general profile category and may be based on anonymized information inferred from information provided to us by a user, including Personal Information (e.g., gender or age), may be based on the Services usage patterns of particular users, or may be based on your activity on Third Party Services. We do not sell Personal Information to any ad networks for use outside of the Services for monetary compensation.

To increase the effectiveness of ad delivery, we may deliver a file (known as a “web beacon”) from an ad network to you through the Services. Web beacons allow ad networks to provide anonymized, aggregated auditing, research and reporting for us and for advertisers. Web beacons also enable ad networks to serve targeted advertisements to you when you visit other websites. Because your web browser must request these advertisements and web beacons from the ad network’s servers, these companies can view, edit or set their own cookies, just as if you had requested a web page from their site.

Information Collected From Third Parties:
We may collect information from third parties in connection with the verification of Financial Information or the facilitation of transactions made through the Services.

Aggregate Information:
We collect statistical information about how both unregistered and registered users, collectively, use the Services (“Aggregate Information”). Some of this information is derived from Personal Information. This statistical information is not Personal Information and cannot be tied back to you, your Account or your web browser.

How, and with whom, is my information shared?

While we collect and store IP address information, that information is not made public. We do at times, however, share this information with our partners, service providers and other persons with whom we conduct business, and as otherwise specified in this Privacy Policy.

We are not responsible for the privacy policies and/or practices of these Third Party Services, and you are responsible for reading and understanding those Third Party Services’ privacy policies. This Privacy Policy only governs information collected on the Services.

Aggregate Information:
We share Aggregate Information with our partners, service providers and other persons with whom we conduct business. We share this type of statistical data so that our partners can understand how and how often people use our Services and their services or websites, which facilitates improving both their services and how our Services interface with them. In addition, these third parties may share with us non-private, aggregated or otherwise non-Personal Information about you that they have independently developed or acquired.

  • Email
  • Text (SMS) messages
  • Telephone calls

You may opt-out of receiving promotional communications from us and/or our partners by emailing  You can also stop receiving promotional email communications from us by clicking on the “unsubscribe link” provided in such communications.

If you have any questions about reviewing or modifying your account information, you can contact us directly at

Information Shared with a Mutual Business Partner:
There may be an intermediate business partner that connects us to you. We may share your information with these business partners in accordance with this Privacy Policy or obtain your information from them, in order to provide you with the Services. For example, if you are a merchant user, we may share information we collect from your use of the Services to the reseller through whom you receive our Services. However, please note that we do not control any other party’s collection and use of your information, which is governed by the terms of the other party’s privacy policy. Please be sure to read their privacy policy very carefully.

Information Shared with Our Third Party Service Providers:
We employ and contract with third parties that perform certain tasks on our behalf in furtherance of the Services, including financial institutions, processors, payment card associations, and other entities that are part of the payment process. We may need to share User Information with such third parties in order to provide products or services to you. To that extent, unless we tell you differently, the contract executed with such third party describes the purpose for which such User Information is shared and requires the third party to both keep that User Information confidential and not use it for any purpose except performing the contract. You hereby consent to our sharing of User Information with such third parties.

Moreover, if we, or substantially all of our assets, were acquired, or if we go out of business or enter bankruptcy, user information would be one of the assets that is transferred or acquired by a third party.

If you are a consumer and wish to make a request pursuant to your rights under the CCPA, please submit a verifiable consumer request to  Be sure to use the phrase “Privacy Request” in the subject line. Only you or a person registered with the appropriate regulatory authority that you authorize to act on your behalf, may make a verifiable consumer request related to your Personal Information. You may also make a verifiable consumer request on behalf of your minor child.

If you are a CardFlight reseller, subject to certain exceptions, you may request that certain personal information be deleted, retrieved, or its use restricted by emailing so that you may comply with your obligations under the CCPA with respect to responding to requests from consumers.  We will provide reasonable and timely assistance to assist you in complying with your obligations with respect to consumer data portability, access and deletion requests under the CCPA.

You may only make a verifiable consumer request for access or data portability twice within a 12-month period. The verifiable consumer request must:

  • Provide sufficient information that allows us to reasonably verify you are the person about whom we collected Personal Information or an authorized representative.
  • Describe your request with sufficient detail that allows us to properly understand, evaluate, and respond to it.

We cannot respond to your request or provide you with Personal Information if we cannot verify your identity or authority to make the request and confirm the Personal Information relates to you.  Making a verifiable consumer request does not require you to create an account with us.  We will only use Personal Information provided in a verifiable consumer request to verify the requestor’s identity or authority to make the request.

Response Timing and Format

We attempt to respond to a verifiable consumer request within 45 days of its receipt.  If we require more time (up to 90 days), we will inform you of the reason and extension period in writing.  We will deliver our written response by mail or electronically, at your option.  Any disclosures we provide will only cover the 12-month period preceding the verifiable consumer request’s receipt.  The response we provide will also explain the reasons we cannot comply with a request, if applicable.  For data portability requests, we will select a format to provide your Personal Information that is readily useable.

We do not charge a fee to process or respond to your verifiable consumer request unless it is excessive, repetitive, or unfounded.  If we determine that the request warrants a fee, we will tell you why we made that decision and provide you with a cost estimate before completing your request.

What choices do I have regarding my information?

You can always opt not to disclose certain information to us, even though it may be needed to take advantage of some of our features.
