Visa 2003 ("Visa 2003") operates visa2003.com and may operate other websites. It is Visa 2003's policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our websites.
Like most website operators, Visa 2003 collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. Visa 2003's purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Visa 2003's visitors use its website. From time to time, Visa 2003 may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
Visa 2003 also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on visa2003.com blogs/sites. Visa 2003 only discloses logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below, except that commenter IP addresses and email addresses are visible and disclosed to the administrators of the blog/site where the comment was left.
Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information
Certain visitors to Visa 2003's websites choose to interact with Visa 2003 in ways that require Visa 2003 to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Visa 2003 gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up at visa2003.com to provide a username and email address. Those who engage in transactions with Visa 2003 are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, Visa 2003 collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor's interaction with Visa 2003. Visa 2003 does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.
Visa 2003 may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. Visa 2003 may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, Visa 2003 does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.
Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information
Visa 2003 discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on Visa 2003's behalf or to provide services available at Visa 2003's websites, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using Visa 2003's websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. Visa 2003 will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, Visa 2003 discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when Visa 2003 believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Visa 2003, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of an Visa 2003 website and have supplied your email address, Visa 2003 may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what's going on with Visa 2003 and our products. If you send us a request (for example via email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users. Visa 2003 takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
If Visa 2003, or substantially all of its assets, were acquired, or in the unlikely event that Visa 2003 goes out of business or enters bankruptcy, user information would be one of the assets that is transferred or acquired by a third party. You acknowledge that such transfers may occur, and that any acquirer of Visa 2003 may continue to use your personal information as set forth in this policy.
