When you access Deluxe eServices web pages, your browser's domain name and Internet address is automatically collected and is placed in our Internet access logs. Deluxe uses this information to learn about which pages and information our Website visitors access and how often. Deluxe also collects Personal Information when you directly submit it to us. When you register and use the App, we may also collect Personal Information as well as your mobile device location and information about your device. Deluxe provides the opportunity to, among other matters; subscribe to email alerts regarding Deluxe events or company news, to request company information, or to request product or service information through an email contact form. When Deluxe collects such Personal Information from you, we intend to use the Personal Information to meet your needs and respond to your requests. It is completely up to you whether to provide Personal Information for these purposes, but note that certain services require your Personal Information in order to be provided. We share personal information as necessary with our service providers that help us provide the Services. Deluxe may also use and disclose Personal Information in order to comply with laws, regulations, court orders and lawful instructions from government agencies or other competent authority, to protect the personal safety of users of our services or the public, to defend Deluxe from claims, to resolve disputes, to troubleshoot problems, to enforce the Terms, or to protect Deluxe rights and property.

- Deluxe eCheck Services. As a user of Deluxe eCheck check writing or remote deposit services, you will be required to enter information that identifies payees, payment amounts, remittance data, and your financial institution’s routing number, your account number and transaction identification information (i.e. check numbers). Each transaction will also include information that identifies the user account that created the transaction and any required authorizations. Deluxe will share this information with the payee at the email address specified by you or to the financial institution that will be required to process the transaction. Our sharing this information is simply the electronic equivalent of your mailing a check or submitting a deposit to your bank.

Deluxe eCheck Service.
As part of our eCheck Service, we assist our clients with notification of their business partners that they will begin sending payments via Deluxe eChecks. As part of this service, we are provided contact information from our customers to assist them in the process of setting up their partners to receive payments via Deluxe eChecks. We will assist our customers in disseminating these notices only to the extent that such information directs their partners to set up the appropriate means of receiving payments. Our assistance will be limited to sharing such instructions with specific partners using contact information provided by our existing customers. As such, we cannot assure that such notice is directed to the proper addressee. Any onboarding information that is misdirected will be the result of incorrect information provided by our users. Such information will include no more than the identity of their business partner and information that identifies the payee’s account with them (i.e. customer account numbers).
Deluxe may work with Channel Partners such as financial institutions that will offer Deluxe eCheck Services to their customers or members under specific terms or arrangements. In those cases, Deluxe will share information with our channel partners for purposes of tracking programs, assuring proper payments and terms among the parties, and avoiding duplicative contacts to Deluxe eCheck users. When working with channel partners, we will provide data in aggregate wherever possible, but may provide account-specific information to satisfy our obligations under each program. That information may include the names of subscribers under those specific programs and the number of transactions purchased or processed. We will not divulge account or transaction-specific information to those third parties; however, in the case of financial institutions those partners may have complete access to such information via their own internal systems.
Deluxe may choose to make available to users of its eServices and, in the case of eCheck Services, to their payees, certain special offers from third party companies. In such case, Deluxe will disclose to those third parties only such information as is required to assure that such offers are shared with the agreed upon number of qualified prospects under the terms of such an arrangement. Deluxe will not disclose the names, contact information, or any account or transactional information to these third parties. Any email from Deluxe eChecks, other than those that provide notification of a payment, will contain a link allowing the receiver to opt out of further communications.
