INFORMATION WE MAY COLLECT

Your IP address, a number assigned to your computer when connected to the Internet, is visible to GovPayNet when you visit our website. Our use of your IP address is limited to making sure our servers are working properly, applying our anti-fraud measures, and helping us administer our website.


On our web site and through our customer support tools, we ask you to provide information that will enable us to facilitate your transaction with government agencies and other GovPayNet clients, or to assist you with technical support issues or to follow up with you after your visit.


We generally ask for your name, e-mail address, phone number, address, as well as other personal information needed to facilitate your transaction.


HOW WE USE INFORMATION

GovPayNet only uses your personal information for your transaction. The information you provide will be kept confidential and used to facilitate your transaction with our clients. Staff with access to your personal information are required to keep the information confidential and not use it for any other purpose than to carry out the services they are performing for GovPayNet.


In addition, GovPayNet may be required to disclose personal information in connection with law enforcement, fraud prevention, regulation, and other legal action or if GovPayNet reasonably believes it is necessary to do so to protect GovPayNet, its customers, or the public.


STORAGE AND PROTECTION OF PERSONAL INFORMATION

GovPayNet stores and processes your personal information on our computers in the United States and we protect it by maintaining physical, electronic and procedural safeguards in compliance with applicable U.S. federal and state regulations. We use computer safeguards such as firewalls and data encryption, we enforce physical access controls to our buildings and files, and we authorize access to personal information only for those employees who require it to fulfill their job responsibilities.


GovPayNet will not disclose your personal information to any outside organization for its use in marketing without your consent. Information regarding you (such as name, address and phone number) will not be given or sold to any outside organization for its use in marketing or solicitation without your consent. Your information may be shared with agents or contractors of GovPayNet for the purpose of performing services for GovPayNet.


INTERNET COMMERCE

GovPayNet is committed to data security with respect to information collected on our site. We offer the industry standard security measures available through your browser called SSL encryption. If at any time you would like to make a purchase, but do not want to provide your credit card information online, you may contact a customer service representative over the telephone. Simply call 1-888-604-7888. It is a GovPayNet practice to contact customers in the event of a potential problem with your transaction or any normal business communication regarding your purchase.
