1. Personal Data We Collect and Present

We collect data in a number of ways when you use the MasterPass Wallet Services:  personal data provided by you; personal data provided by participating merchants; personal data provided by the issuer of your payment cards or other financial institutions; personal data we collect automatically; and personal data provided by you in connection with other MasterPass mobile wallets on your device.  By personal data we mean “any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person.”

If you have more than one MasterPass mobile application with an active account on your mobile device, we may also present data from each MasterPass account to you when making a purchase at a participating merchant to help you choose how you would like to pay.  To learn more, see Section 1(e), below.

 

a.    Personal Data Provided by You

 

In connection with your use of MasterPass Wallet Services, we may ask you for certain personal data upon registration, on applications forms or other forms,  such as your name, home  address, billing address, shipping address, telephone number, email address, national identity card number in some instances, user name, password, answers to our security questions, loyalty card information and payment card information. The provision of your personal data for the purposes listed below is voluntary.  However, in some circumstances, withholding your personal data will mean that you cannot take advantage of certain products or services.

 

 

b.    Personal Data Provided by Participating Merchants in Connection with Your Use of the MasterPass Wallet

 

We receive certain data from merchants about your transactions using the MasterPass Wallet Services, including but not limited to, stock-keeping unit data, description of items, quantity, price and subtotal and payment cards registered with the MasterPass Wallet, merchant name, currency, amount, date and time of order and information about whether or not the order was completed.  If you have an account on file with the merchant, they may also provide us with your shipping address.

 

 

c.     Personal Data Provided by the Issuer of Your Registered Payment Card or Other Financial Institution

 

                      When you register a payment card with the MasterPass Wallet, we may send information to the issuer of that card to validate the card, authenticate your identity and tokenize your payment credentials to make your payments more secure.  This information may include your name, payment card information, billing address, information about your mobile device and information about how you registered your payment cards in your MasterPass Wallet. To facilitate the validation/authentication/tokenization process, we may  receive personal data about you back from the issuer of your payment card.  In addition, when you make payments using tokenized credentials via the MasterPass Wallet, we receive data about the token and the transaction back from the issuer of your payment card.  

 

In addition, in some instances, we may receive data about you from your financial institution in order to help ensure you create the correct MasterPass wallet.  For example, your financial institution may provide us with your email address or phone number in an encrypted, protected form.  When you click on the “Buy With MasterPass” button at a merchant or otherwise sign-up or sign-in for a wallet, you will be asked for your email or phone number.  If the information you provide matches the information provided by your financial institution, you may be directed to a specific MasterPass wallet relating to that financial institution. 

 

 

d.    Personal Data We Collect Automatically

 

Overview:  We, and our service providers, may collect certain information by using automated means, such as cookies and web beacons, when you interact with the MasterPass Wallet Services, or visit the MasterPass websites, pages or other digital assets. The information we collect in this manner may include: IP address, mobile device IP address, mobile device unique identifier, browser type and setting data (such as screen resolution, color depth, timezone settings, browser extension and plugins, fonts, etc), operating system, referring URLs and information on actions taken or interaction with our digital assets. A “cookie” is a text file placed on a computer’s hard drive by a web server. A “web beacon,” also known as an Internet tag, pixel tag or clear GIF, is used to transmit information back to a web server.

 

Browser Data:  In addition to the above, we, and our service providers, may automatically collect browser data from your device. Browser data consists of information about settings on the configuration of the browser you use to access the MasterPass Wallet Services. This may include screen resolution and color depth, timezone settings, browser extensions and plugs installed in the browser and versions thereof, fonts installed on the browser, the user agent string and other similar data. This data is used to create a unique fingerprint of the browser used to access MasterPass Online to remember the choices made by that browser and to assist in preventing fraud and enhancing the security of the MasterPass Wallet Services. We may offer users of our MasterPass Wallet Services choices to opt-out of the collection and fingerprinting of browser data via our Cookie Consent Tool. 

 

Third Party Analytics:  We may use third-party web analytics services, such as those of Adobe Omniture. The analytics providers that administer these services use technologies such as cookies and web beacons to help us analyze how visitors use the MasterPass Wallet Services.  In the MasterPass Mobile Application, you can turn off Adobe Omniture web analytics.  In the United States, you can also opt-out of analytics via the AdChoices icon on the MasterPass websites. Please see the “Your Rights and Choices” section of this Privacy Notice to learn about your ability to opt out or limit the use of your browsing behavior for online behavioral advertising purposes.

 

Pixels.  When we send emails to people with a MasterPass Wallet account, we may track behavior such as who opened the emails and who clicked the links. We do that to measure the performance of our emails and to improve our features. To do this, we include single pixel gifs, also called web beacons, in emails we send. Web beacons allow us to collect information about whether an email has been opened and the number of clicks inside that email. We use the data from those Web Beacons to create the reports about how our email campaign performed and what actions individuals took within the email (e.g. links clicked). If you do not wish for us to track emails we send you, some email services allow you to adjust your display to turn off HTML or disable download of images which should effectively disable our email tracking.

 

Tailored Advertising:  We, and our service providers, may also collect information about your interactions with the MasterPass Wallet Services for use in providing you with content and advertising tailored to your individual interests. We may also use your personal data and other information obtained about you from companies that use or facilitate the use of other MasterCard products or services and from publicly available information systems to deliver advertising and offers that may be of interest to you. You may see certain ads on other websites because we (and our partners) use data collected via the MasterPass Wallet Services to customize advertisements to you on third-party websites. This collection and use allows us to target our messaging to users through demographic, interest-based and contextual means. In connection with providing you customized advertisements, third parties on our websites may track your online activities over time and across third-party websites by collecting information through automated means, including through the use of cookies, web server logs and web beacons. The information collected includes information about your visits to certain websites, the pages or advertisements you view and the actions you take on those websites. This data collection takes place on MasterPass Online, other MasterPass websites on third-party websites and it may take place on the MasterPass Mobile App. This process also helps us track the effectiveness of our marketing efforts. Please see the “Your Rights and Choices” section of this Privacy Notice to learn about your ability to opt out or limit the use of your browsing behavior for online behavioral advertising purposes.

 

Customized Checkout:  We may use information about your use of the MasterPass wallet, or which MasterPass Wallet you use, in order to deliver you a customized merchant checkout experience.  After making a MasterPass transaction, we may drop a cookie on your device that will provide a customized MasterPass checkout button on merchant websites based on which MasterPass Wallet you use, or, in some instances, which payment card you used for that transaction.  This will deliver a more seamless consumer MasterPass experience.  Merchants are not able to access this information.  Please see the “Your Rights and Choices” section of this Privacy Notice to learn about your ability to opt out the customized checkout experience.

 

 

If you are accessing the MasterPass Wallet Services from Europe, please refer to our Cookie Notice for further information.

 

e.    Personal Data Presented from Your Other MasterPass Wallets on the Device

 

If you are using the MasterPass Wallet Services on an eligible device, when you click on the “Buy With MasterPass” button to make a payment using a participating merchants mobile application, we will scan your mobile device  to see if any certified MasterPass mobile applications are loaded on the device.  If so, during the checkout flow at the Participating Merchant, you will be presented with a list of each such MasterPass wallet and the registered payment cards for such wallets so you can choose which MasterPass wallet and payment card you would like to use for that transaction.
