Your company may get evaluated and card orders may require personal information for the given cardholder. Additionally billing related information is required from our side to fulfill your order, aside from any requirements you may state for us to fulfill the order.
We collect information in the following ways:
- Information you give us.For example, our portal services require you to sign up for an account. When you do, we’ll ask for personal information, like your name, email address, telephone number, invoice and delivery addresses. Additional information about your company may also be required, for specifics we kindly ask you to read the given services FAQ. This does also stand true for any personal information for cardholders for whom you may place card orders.
- Information we get from your use of our services.We are required to collect personal information for all cardholders you may place card orders for, in order to provide you with such access cards.
- We collect device-specific information(such as your hardware model and operating system version).
Unique application numbers

Accessing and updating your personal information
Whenever you use our services, we aim to provide you with access to your personal information. If that information is wrong, we strive to give you ways to update it quickly or to delete it – unless we have to keep that information for legitimate business or legal purposes. When updating your personal information, we may ask you to verify your identity before we can act on your request.
We may reject requests that are unreasonably repetitive, require disproportionate technical effort (for example, developing a new system or fundamentally changing an existing practice), risk the privacy of others, or would be extremely impractical (for instance, requests concerning information residing on backup systems).
Where we can provide information access and correction, we will do so for free, except where it would require a disproportionate effort. We aim to maintain our services in a manner that protects information from accidental or malicious destruction. Because of this, after you delete information from our services, we may not immediately delete residual copies from our active servers and may not remove information from our backup systems.
