We may also ask you to send us additional documentation or to answer additional questions to help verify your information.
  • Information obtained from third parties - In order to protect you from fraud or other misconduct, we may obtain information about you from third parties to verify the information you provide. For example, we may use card authorization and fraud screening services to verify that your credit or debit card information and address match the information that you provided to us. Also, for merchants, we may obtain information about you and your business from a credit bureau or other sources such as public records or private business information services.

Legal Basis for Processing Your Personal Information

Our legal basis for collecting and using the Personal Information described above will depend on the personal information concerned and the specific context in which we collect it. However, we will normally collect Personal Information from you only where:

  • We have your consent to do so
  • We need the personal information to fulfill a contractual obligation to you
  • The processing is in our legitimate interests and not overridden by your rights or
  • We have a legal obligation to collect Personal Information from you

"Legitimate interests" means the interests of our company in conducting and managing our business to enable us to give you the best service/products and the best and most secure experience. For example: we have an interest in keeping our network secure. It can also apply to processing that is in your interests as well. For example: we may process your Personal Information to protect you against fraud when transacting on our website. We process Personal Information for certain legitimate business purposes, which include some or all of the following:

  • To enhance, modify, personalize or otherwise improve our services/communications for the benefit of our customers
  • To identify and prevent fraud
  • To enhance the security of our network and information systems

When processing your Personal Information for our legitimate interests, we make sure to consider and balance any potential impact on you (both positive and negative) and your rights under the data protection laws. Our legitimate business interests do not automatically override your interests – we will not use your Personal Information for activities where our interests are overridden by the impact on you (unless we have your consent or are otherwise required or permitted by law). If you have any concerns about the processing, you have the right to object to processing that is based on our legitimate interests. For more information on your rights, please see “Your Rights” section below.


You may choose whether or not to provide Personal Information to us. If you choose not to provide the Personal Information we request, you can still visit most of our Website, but you will be unable to purchase a product or service online, setup an account with us and/or use our Services for your websites. If you choose to have a relationship with us, such as a contractual or other business relationship, you will be required to provide Personal Information in connection with such relationship.

Accountability for Onward Transfer

When we share Personal Information with a third party we will ensure that our agreement with the third party provides that such Personal Information may only be processed for limited and specified purposes consistent with the consent you provided and that the third party will provide the same level of protection as the Privacy Shield Principles and will notify us if it determines that it can no longer meet this obligation. In cases of onward transfer to third parties of data of EU, UK or Swiss individuals received pursuant to the EU-US Privacy Shield or Swiss-US Privacy Shield respectively, we are potentially liable.


We have implemented security policies, rules and technical measures to protect the Personal Information that we have under our control from unauthorized access, improper use or disclosure, unauthorized modification, unlawful destruction or accidental loss. BillTech utilizes HTTP Secure (HTTPS) and/or Transport Layer Security (TLS) when receiving and transmitting information electronically.

We protect Personal Information by maintaining physical, electronic and procedural safeguards in compliance with applicable US 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.

Finally, your Personal Information is disposed by shredding paper records and by the use of the shred tool that ensures that any and all electronically stored files are permanently removed from hard disks and any other electronic media which are then also physically destroyed before being disposed.

Data Integrity & Purpose Limitation

We will take reasonable steps to ensure that all Personal Information that we collect is accurate, complete, current and reliable for its intended use and purpose which may include those that reasonably serve payment processing, customer relations, compliance and legal considerations, auditing, security and fraud prevention, preserving or defending our legal rights or other reasonable uses in this context. You may send updates and corrections about your Personal Information to and we will make reasonable efforts to incorporate the changes in your Personal Information that we hold as soon as practicable. We will retain your Personal Information only for as long as it is necessary for purposes as identified above.

Upon meeting certain security measures, BillTech shall provide you with a copy of the Personal Information that it keeps about you. Prior to completing your request, BillTech may require that you provide us with certain items as a proof of your identity. BillTech reserves the right to refuse a request where the burden or expense of providing access would be disproportionate to the risks to your privacy or where the rights of persons other than You would be violated.

Recourse, Enforcement & Liability

In compliance with the EU-US Privacy Shield Principles and Swiss-US Privacy Shield Principles, we are committed to investigate and expeditiously resolve complaints about your privacy and our collection or use of your Personal Information. BillTech uses the self-assessment method of verification of compliance and is subject to the enforcement authority of the US Federal Trade Commission.
