We do not consider personal information to include information that has been anonymized so that it does not identify a specific user.
We store and process your personal information on our computers in the US, and we protect it by maintaining physical, electronic and procedural safeguards in compliance with applicable US federal and state regulations. We use computer safeguards such as firewalls and data encryption, we enforce physical access controls to our buildings and files, and we authorize access to personal information only for those employees who require it to fulfill their job responsibilities.

customize, measure, and improve our services and the content and layout of our website; send you targeted marketing, service update notices, and promotional offers based on your communication preferences; compare information for accuracy and verify it with third parties.
How We Share Personal Information with Other SICI Users

In doing so, a merchant may share information about you with us, such as your email address, when you attempt to pay that merchant. We use this information to confirm to that merchant that you are a SICI customer and that the merchant should enable SICI as a form of payment for your purchase.
Regardless, we will not disclose your credit card number or bank account number to anyone, except with your express permission or if we are required to do so to comply with a subpoena or other legal process.
