As LA's services evolve, we may revise this policy, so please check back frequently. If you have questions about privacy practices, please contact Client Services at 805-464-9231.
This Policy does not apply to the practices of companies that LA does not own or control, or to people that ABC does not employ or manage.
Information Collection and Use
LA collects personally-identifiable information when you register for an LA account, and when you use certain LA products and services. LA may also receive personally-identifiable information from its resellers and other business partners.
When you register with LA, we ask for your contact information (such as your name, street address, and email address), as well as certain information pertaining to your business, along with billing information such as a bank account and/or credit card number.
In the course of processing a payment transaction, we typically receive from the client or financial institution information related to the transaction. This normally includes information about the payment that a consumer has furnished the client or financial institution in placing the order.
The personally-identifiable information we acquire in processing payment transactions varies according to the nature of the transaction and the way in which clients or financial institutions are using our payment services. It may include, for example, the amount of the transaction, the consumer’s name, credit card number and expiration date, checking account number, billing address, and shipping address.
LA uses the information collected to fulfill your requests for certain products and services, to process payment transactions, to facilitate billing, and otherwise deliver the payment gateway services. We may also send clients service announcements, newsletters, and periodic notices about specials, new products and services, and products and services offered by LA's business partners. Personally-identifiable consumer information is used to process payment transactions and for no other purpose.
LA does not offer services or sell products to children. LA does not request or knowingly collect personally-identifiable contact information from anyone under the age of 13.
Information Sharing and Disclosure
Protecting personally-identifiable information about clients and consumers is an important part of our business. We share and disclose such information only as described below.
LA sends personally-identifiable information about you to other companies or people: 1) when we have your consent to share the information; 2) when we need to share your information with third parties, such as banks and credit card processors, to provide the product or service you have requested; 3) in connection with products and services offered by LA business partners and/or companies who work on behalf of LA to provide a product or service to you; 4) it is appropriate to comply with law; 5) it is necessary to enforce or apply the terms and conditions of our Merchant Agreement and other applicable agreements; or 6) it is necessary to protect the rights, property, or safety of our users, or others, which may include the exchange of information with other organizations for fraud protection and/or risk reduction.
In the event that LA is acquired, client account information may be one of the transferred assets.
Information security is critical to our business. We work to protect the security of your information during transmission by using Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) software, which encrypts information you input. We store information gathered on secure computers located in a locked data center. The number of employees involved in the management of the data center that have physical access to these computers is limited. We use firewalls and other security technology to prevent our computers from being accessed by unauthorized persons.
We also require that any personally-identifiable consumer information sent to us by you be encrypted using SSL encryption. To learn more about SSL, visit: http://info.ssl.com/article.aspx?id=10241.
It is important for you to protect against unauthorized access to your Login ID/password and to your computer. Be sure to sign off when finished using a shared computer and otherwise protect the password used to access the services of LA.
