Log Files

As is true of most Web sites, we gather certain information automatically and store it in log files. This information includes internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, internet service provider (ISP), referring/exit pages, operating system, date/time stamp, and clickstream data.

We use this information, which does not identify individual users, to analyze trends, to administer the site, to track users’ movements around the site and to gather demographic information about our user base as a whole.

We do not link this automatically-collected data to personally identifiable information, except to help secure your information and prevent fraud. For example, accesses to your card or Distributor account are logged with the IP address of the user; credit card orders are also associated with logged IP addresses for fraud prevention.


A cookie is a small text file that is stored on a user’s computer for record-keeping purposes. We use cookies on this site. We do not link the information we store in cookies to any personally identifiable information you submit while on our site.

We use session ID cookies and/or persistent cookies. We use session cookies to make it easier for you to navigate our site. A session ID cookie expires when you close you browser. A persistent cookie remains on your hard drive for an extended period of time. You can remove persistent cookies by following directions provided in your Internet browser’s “help” file. For more information on cookies, follow this link:

We may set a persistent cookie to store your navigation and site layout preferences, so you don’t have to enter them more than once. Persistent cookies also enable us to track and target the interests of our users to enhance the experience on our site.

To help you keep your account secure, we DO NOT store your login, password, or other personally-identifiable information in cookies.

If you reject cookies, you may still use our site, but your ability to use some areas of our site, such as contests or surveys, will be limited.

Clear Gifs (Web Beacons/Web Bugs)

We do not employ a software technology called "clear gifs" (a.k.a. Web Beacons/Web Bugs).

We may use clear gifs in our HTML-based emails to let us know which emails have been opened by recipients. This allows us to gauge the effectiveness of certain communications with our users. If you would like to opt-out of these emails, please see “Choice and Opt-out.”

Third Party Advertisers

We do not include third-party ads on this website.

Links to Other Sites

This Web site contains links to other sites that are not owned or controlled by Datazoid. Please be aware that we, Datazoid Financial Services, LLC, are not responsible for the privacy practices of such other sites.

We encourage you to be aware when you leave our site and to read the privacy statements of each and every Web site that collects personally identifiable information.

This privacy statement applies only to information collected by this Web site.

Co-branded sites

We DO NOT share personally-identifiable information with business partners or advertisers; this includes, but is not limited to Co-branding partners, Marketing partners or Resellers.

Co-branding partners, Marketing partners and Resellers may directly ask you for personally-identifiable information in order to initiate and maintain their business relationship with you. These partners will NOT share this information with us.

Program Administrators

We must share a cardholder's personally-identifiable information with a Card Program Administrator if the cardholder is part of an Employer program, Government Agency program, or other program in which card transactions must be approved by a Program Adminstrator who represents the Payor (the entity which loads the card with funds). Examples of the types of cards for which an Adminstrator has access to this information include but are not limited to Payroll Card or Corporate Expense Card (Employer has access), and Government Benefits Card (Government Agency has access). These administrators may have access to information including specific transaction data. For example, if the cardholder were to use their employer's corporate credit card, the Employer would have access to all transaction info; this is also true for programs using a Corporate Expense Stored Value Card.

Program Administrators for programs in which no transaction approval is necessary — such as Merchant programs, Mall programs and the like — do not have access to the personally-identifiable information we gather. Examples of cards and programs for which the program administrator has no access to this information include but are not limited to Merchant Card and Mall Card.

In general, if you are creating a card account with a company who already has access to your personal information — like your employer or government agency from which you receive benefits — the Program Administrator for that card account will have access to that same info. If you are creating a card account or accepting a card from a company that doesn't already have or need your personally-identifiable information to process your stored value card transactions — like a retailer, or a consumer goods manufacturer that is sponsoring a Promotion Card program. For example, a retailer doesn't need your personal information to deduct funds from a Gift Card.

In certain cases, you may choose to provide your personally-identifiable information directly to, for example, a Retailer who is sponsoring a Gift Card. The Retailer's Gift Card Program Administrator may have access to a list of transactions involving your Gift Card, and may be able to tie that list to your personally-identifiable information you provided in order to provide you with better service and evaluate the effectiveness of a program.

Before submitting your personally-identifiable information to any entity or website, you should read and understand the User Agreement / Cardholder Agreement and Privacy Policy associated with that entity, program or site.

If you have a question as to whether the administrator of your card program has access to your personally-identifiable information, please review your Cardholder Agreement, or contact your Program Administrator.

While we strive to ensure that those who do business work to protect their customers' best interests, Datazoid Financial Services, LLC is not responsible for the privacy practices of entities administering Card Programs that utilize Datazoid services and products.

Bulletin Boards/Chat Rooms

If you use a bulletin board or chat room on this site, you should be aware that any personally identifiable information you submit there can be read, collected, or used by other users of these forums, and could be used to send you unsolicited messages.
