Deluxe knows that privacy is important to you and your business. It is also vital to our business. This Privacy Policy describes the types of "Personal Information" (information that is identifiable to a particular person) that Deluxe collects in connection with this Site, as defined in the Deluxe eChecks End User License Agreement (the “Terms”). Deluxe does not sell Personal Information you to provide to us related to the Deluxe eChecks product to third parties. Deluxe distributes only limited Personal Information to third parties to allow them to complete specific transactions. Deluxe gathers Personal Information and will distribute this information within Deluxe in an effort to meet your needs and respond to your information requests. This Privacy Policy (“Privacy Policy”) sets forth the guidelines Deluxe uses in protecting your privacy. This Privacy Policy is considered part of the Terms.

  1. What Types of "Personal Information" We Collect, How We Collect It and How We May Use and Disclose Your Personal Information.
    Deluxe collects Personal Information about visitors to this Site indirectly through our Internet access logs. When you access Deluxe eChecks web pages, your browser's domain name and Internet address is automatically collected and is placed in our Internet access logs. Deluxe uses this information to learn about which pages and information our Site visitors access and how often. Deluxe also collects Personal Information when you directly submit it to us. Deluxe provides the opportunity to, among other matters; subscribe to e-mail alerts regarding Deluxe events or company news, to request company information, or to request product or service information through an e-mail contact form. When Deluxe collects such Personal Information from you, we intend to use the Personal Information to meet your needs and respond to your requests. It is completely up to you whether to provide Personal Information for these purposes. Deluxe may also use and disclose Personal Information in order to comply with laws, regulations, court orders and lawful instructions from a government agencies or other competent authority, to protect the personal safety of users of our services or the public, to defend Deluxe from claims, to resolve disputes, to troubleshoot problems, to enforce the Terms, or to protect Deluxe rights and property.
  2. Transactional and Account Information.
    As a user of Deluxe eCheck check writing or remote deposit services, you will be required to enter information that identifies payees, payment amounts, remittance data, and your financial institution’s routing number, your account number and transaction identification information (i.e. check numbers). Each transaction will also include information that identifies the user account that created the transaction and any required authorizations. Deluxe will share this information with the payee at the e-mail address specified by you or to the financial institution that will be required to process the transaction. Our sharing this information is simply the electronic equivalent of your mailing a check or submitting a deposit to your bank.
  3. Cookies, Browser Information and Related Issues.
    1. When you visit this Site, Deluxe receives certain standard information that your browser sends to every website you visit, such as your IP address, browser type and language, access times and referring website addresses, and other such information. This data may be used to improve the operation of this Site and to improve Site security by assisting in "authenticating" who you are when you access this Site, particularly if you register for a Site offering or functionality and are issued or create a username and password.
    2. Deluxe may also receive additional information about your visit to this Site, including the pages you view, the links you click and other actions you take in connection with this Site and the products and services offered through it. This data may be used among other uses to improve the operation of this Site and to make this Site design more efficient.
    3. Like most websites, this Site also uses "cookies," which are small text files placed on your computer by the web server when you visit this Site. Most such cookies are "session" cookies that are only used for a specific period during which you are on this Site, but a few are "persistent" cookies that stay on your hard drive and are read by the web server when you return to this Site. This Site uses cookies to store your preferences and other information on your computer in order to save you time by eliminating the need to repeatedly enter the same information and to display your personalized content on your later visits to this Site.

  4. Deluxe eCheck Service.
    As part of our service, we assist our clients with notification of their business partners that they will begin sending payments via Deluxe eChecks. As part of this service, we are provided contact information from our customers to assist them in the process of setting up their partners to receive payments via Deluxe eChecks. We will assist our customers in disseminating these notices only to the extent that such information directs their partners to set up the appropriate means of receiving payments. Our assistance will be limited to sharing such instructions with specific partners using contact information provided by our existing customers. As such, we cannot assure that such notice is directed to the proper addressee. Any onboarding information that is misdirected will be the result of incorrect information provided by our users. Such information will include no more than the identity of their business partner and information that identifies the payee’s account with them (i.e. customer account numbers).
  5. Channel Partners.
    Deluxe may work with Channel Partners such as financial institutions that will offer Deluxe eCheck services to their customers or members under specific terms or arrangements. In those cases, Deluxe will share information with our channel partners for purposes of tracking programs, assuring proper payments and terms among the parties, and avoiding duplicative contacts to Deluxe eCheck users. When working with channel partners, we will provide data in aggregate wherever possible, but may provide account-specific information to satisfy our obligations under each program. That information may include the names of subscribers under those specific programs and the number of transactions purchased or processed. We will not divulge account or transaction-specific information to those third parties; however, in the case of financial institutions those partners may have complete access to such information via their own internal systems.
  6. Partner Offers.
    Deluxe may choose to make available to its users and their payees certain special offers from third party companies. In such case, Deluxe will disclose to those third parties only such information as is required to assure that such offers are shared with the agreed upon number of qualified prospects under the terms of such an arrangement. Deluxe will not disclose the names, contact information, or any account or transactional information to these third parties. Any e-mail from Deluxe eChecks, other than those that provide notification of a payment, will contain a link allowing the receiver to opt out of further communications.
  7. How We Protect Your Personal Information.
    To protect your Personal Information from unauthorized access and use, Deluxe maintains physical, electronic, and procedural safeguards, and require those to whom we disclose Personal Information (including our employees and service providers that assist us in operating this Site) to do the same.
  8. External Links.
    This Site may provide links to other third party websites. Even if the third party is affiliated with Deluxe through a business relationship or otherwise, Deluxe is not responsible for the conditions or results of use, privacy policies or practices or the content of such external links or the person or entity responsible for them.
