Endorser (“We”, “Us” or “Endorser”) respect your privacy and the security of your personal information.

This Privacy Policy ("Privacy Policy") describes our information and privacy practices with regard to the website ("Site"), and the types of information we may gather from you and other visitors to the Site. Unless stated otherwise, this Privacy Policy applies only to information collected on the Site and does not apply to information collected offline or otherwise outside of the Site. It also describes the choices available to you regarding the use of, your access to, and how to update and correct your personal information. By browsing or using services on our Site, you are accepting the practices described in this Privacy Policy and consent to our use of cookies and similar technologies.

Information We Collect

The information we collect generally falls into one of three categories:

- Information that personally identifies you: This is commonly referred to as “personal information” and includes, for example, information that you may provide such as your name, email address, home mailing address, home telephone number, or payment information (including your bank account or credit card number). We also collect date of birth and Social Security Number (SSN) if you apply through our Site to become a client of Endorser. Personal information does not include information that has been stripped of personally identifying information and aggregated so that it can no longer be used to identify a specific person;

- Information about your business: This information is considered commercial information and includes, but is not limited to, a customer’s business name, address, telephone and/or fax numbers, email address, business tax identification number, and corporate financial account information; and

- Information that relates to you, but on its own, does not identify you: This includes information about your Internet connection, the equipment you use to access our online services, and information relating to your usage of those services.

Endorser provides commercial services from its offices in the United States. If you are visiting this Site from outside the United States and provide us with personal information, please note that your personal information will be transferred, stored and processed within the United States, and you explicitly consent to this transfer.

How We Collect Information

Information You Provide

Endorser may provide you a form for inquiries and/or an application for services that can be submitted online. The online form and application will require you to provide us certain information about your business including, but not limited to, the business name, address, telephone number, email address, and financial information. This information is used to facilitate a business relationship between your company and Endorser.

If you apply through this Site to become a client of Endorser, you will be asked to provide additional information including your date of birth and Social Security Number to validate your identity or make a determination of eligibility.

Several areas of the Site may permit you to enter your email address for purposes including, but not limited to, registering an account, signing up for email newsletters and special offers, or to be contacted by an Endorser representative. You may choose to stop receiving our newsletter or marketing emails by following the unsubscribe instructions included in these emails, or you can contact us using any of the methods described below in the Contact Information section of this Privacy Policy.

Collection through Automated Collection Technologies

We also gather certain information automatically through cookies and other industry standard collection mechanisms. This information may include Internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, Internet service provider (ISP), referring/exit pages, the files viewed on our site (e.g., HTML pages, graphics, etc.), your operating system, date/time stamp, the country or state from which you accessed our Site, and/or clickstream data to analyze trends in the aggregate and administer the site.

Tracking Technologies

Endorser uses cookies, web beacons, or similar technologies to analyze trends, administer the Site, track users’ movements around the Site, and gather information about our user base as a whole.

A cookie is a small text file placed on your computer or mobile device as you navigate websites.  Most browsers are set to accept cookies by default.  You can control the use of cookies at the individual browser level, but if you choose to disable cookies, it may limit your use of certain features or functions on our Site. We send a "session cookie" to your computer or other access device when you log into the Site. This type of cookie helps us to recognize you if you visit multiple pages on the Site during the same session, so that we do not need to ask you for your password on each page. Once you log out or close your browser, the cookie expires and no longer has any effect.

Our third party partner may use technologies such as cookies to gather information about your activities on the Site and other sites in order to provide you advertising based upon your browsing activities and interests. If you wish not to have this information used for the purpose of serving you interest-based ads, you may opt-out by adjusting your web browser settings. Please note that this does not opt out of being served any ads. You will continue to receive generic ads.

Web beacons (a.k.a. clear GIFs, web bugs or pixel tags), are tiny graphics with a unique identifier, similar in function to cookies. Web beacons are embedded invisibly on web pages. We may use web beacons, in connection with our websites to, among other things, track the activities of visitors, help us manage content, and compile statistics about usage of the websites.

From Third Parties

The Site may allow trusted business partners to refer your company to Endorser. In such event, such information is provided from a third party to us, and includes your name, your email and company contact information. When this information is received by us from the Site, an Endorser representative will contact you by phone. Endorser uses this information for the sole purpose of informing you about our services and tracking the success of our referral program. You may contact us using any of the methods described below in the Contact Information section of this privacy policy in order to request that we remove your information from our marketing list.

User Data Supplementation

We may receive information about you from other sources, including publicly available databases or third parties from whom we have purchased data, and we may combine this data with information we already have about you. This helps us to update, expand and analyze our records, identify new customers, and provide products and services that may be of interest to you. If you provide us personal information about others, or if others give us your information, we will only use that information for the specific reason for which it was provided to us.

Examples of the types of personal information that may be obtained from public sources or purchased from third parties and combined with information we already have about you, may include information contained in a consumer credit report or obtained as part of determining eligibility for our services.

How We Use Your Information

Endorser collects and uses your commercial information to give you current market and product information, to provide you with convenient access to your data, and to provide you with excellent service. In addition, we may use your information to keep you up to date on new product announcements, special offers, and other information we believe would benefit you.

If you submit an application online, all information will be used by our sales representatives to contact you and discuss engaging in a business relationship with Endorser.

How We Share Your Information

We will not sell (or trade or rent) personal information to other companies as part of our regular course of business. Endorser may transfer your personal and/or commercial information to third parties, including service providers we use to support our business (e.g., marketing services, fulfillment services, identity verification providers, commercial and consumer credit reporting agencies, data aggregators, and financial institutions). These companies are authorized to use your personal information only as necessary to provide these services to us. In those cases, we will require such third parties to agree to treat your information in accordance with this Privacy Policy or as you may have otherwise previously consented.

It is possible that we might acquire, merge with, or be acquired by another company or that we might dispose of some or all of our assets and in that instance, your personal information may be disclosed to another company, but that disclosure will be subject to the Privacy Policy in effect.

In certain situations, we may disclose such information in response to lawful requests from public authorities and/or law enforcement officials conducting investigations including to meet national security or law enforcement requirements. We may also disclose your personal information as required by law, such as to comply to subpoenas or other legal process, court orders, or if we are otherwise required to disclose such information by law.

We also will disclose personal information where disclosure is necessary to protect our legal rights, enforce our Terms of Use or other agreements, to collect a debt, or to protect ourselves or others. For example, we may share information to reduce the risk of fraud or if someone uses or attempts to use the Site for illegal reasons.

How Is Your Information Secured?

Endorser uses reasonable measures to protect personal information from unauthorized access, deletion or alteration. We have physical, electronic, and procedural safeguards to protect your personal information. Furthermore, we require that employees and third party administrators/processors access your personal information only on a need-to-know basis.

We also maintain security standards that are designed to protect your information as it is transmitted from your computer to our network. This technology is called Secure Socket Layer (SSL). SSL is a security protocol for data transfer on the Internet and helps to protect the safety and confidentiality of your information.

Although we use industry-standard precautions to safeguard your personal information, we cannot guarantee complete security. You play a critical role in protecting your information by maintaining up-to-date computer security protections including, but not limited to, using up to date anti-virus software, protecting your account with a strong password, protecting the privacy of your off network communications through the use of VPNs, and keeping intruders out by utilizing firewalls. If you believe that your interaction with us is no longer secure or that your account has been compromised, please notify us using the contact details below.
