Privacy Policy

Last Updated: August 29, 2022

PaceGateway is a data processor where it is facilitating payment transactions on behalf of and at the direction of a PaceGateway User. Our Users direct us to take payment from cardholders—PaceGateway is a processor when directed to process payments—about whom to pay, how much to pay, when to pay.

As a platform provider, we need to make sure our platform is consistent and includes clear information about how we operate PaceGateway.

Frequently Asked Questions

Does PaceGateway share my personal data with other Merchants?

No. PaceGateway does not share personal data collected in connection with purchases (or attempted purchases) from one merchant’s checkout with another merchant.

How do I stop promotional emails from a merchant?

Any offers or promotional emails that you receive as a result of a merchant’s use of the Promotional Emails feature are sent by merchants (or others identified in the message), and not by PaceGateway. We think that you may find value in receiving these emails, but if you do not, please contact the merchant you are receiving the messages from. PaceGateway requires that merchants that choose to implement the Promotional Email feature also provide the option to unsubscribe or opt-out of receiving further promotional messages. It would be a breach of PaceGateway’s Terms of Use for a merchant to not promptly comply with opt-out requests.

How do I stop the sale of my personal data?

PaceGateway does not sell your personal data.

Security controls

PaceGateway employs security controls and maintains and enforces a security program that addresses the management of security. We also perform risk assessments and implement and maintain controls for risk identification, analysis, monitoring, reporting, and corrective action. PaceGateway maintains and enforces an asset management program that appropriately classifies and controls hardware and software assets throughout their life cycle. In addition, PaceGateway employees, agents, and contractors acknowledge their data security and privacy responsibilities under PaceGateway’s policies.

PaceGateway applies technical and organizational measures that include the following:

  • Physical access control to prevent unauthorized persons from gaining access to the data processing systems available at premises and facilities (including databases, application servers, and related hardware), where Personal Data are processed.
  • Virtual access control to prevent data processing systems from being used by unauthorized persons.
  • Data access control to ensure that persons entitled to use a data processing system gain access only to such Personal Data in accordance with their access rights, and that Personal Data cannot be read, copied, modified or deleted without authorization.
  • Disclosure control to ensure that Personal Data cannot be read, copied, modified or deleted without authorization during electronic transmission, transport or storage on storage media (manual or electronic), and that it can be verified to which companies or other legal entities Personal Data are disclosed.
  • Entry control to audit whether data have been entered, changed or removed (deleted), and by whom, from data processing systems.
  • Availability control to ensure that Personal Data are protected against accidental destruction or loss (physical/logical).
  • Separation control to ensure that Personal Data collected for different purposes can be processed separately.
  • By default, PaceGateway encrypts data at rest and data in transit. We further protect your data with tools like audit logs, access management policies and certifications. Security controls implemented at PaceGateway include TLS and/or SSL encryption for HTTPS and regular testing of infrastructure components.

The safety and security of your Personal Data also depends on you. Where we have given you (or where you have chosen) a password for access to certain parts of our Services, you are responsible for keeping this password confidential. We ask you not to share your password with anyone. Unfortunately, the transmission of Personal Data via the internet is not completely secure. Although we do our best to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee the security of your personal information transmitted to our Services. Any transmission of personal information is at your own risk. We are not responsible for circumvention of any privacy settings or security measures contained on the Services.
