Welcome to BANKCARD INTERNATIONAL GROUP LLC (“B.I.G.”, “we”, “us” or “our”). Our Privacy Policy explains how we collect, use, share, and protect information in relation to the use of our company website, mobile site, or mobile device applications (collectively, the “Sites”), and the merchant credit card processing services and other products (“Services”) offered by B.I.G. to its clients. The Sites and Services are sometimes referred to collectively herein as the “Platform.” Establishing an effective Privacy Policy, designed to protect your information and provide you with choices on how you would like your information managed, is an important part of our relationship with you.

Additional details about our use of Clients’ information can be found in the Terms of Use documenting your relationship with B.I.G. and its Services.    


In General. Through your interaction with and use of the Platform, including for the purpose of uploading information, request for services, company information related to any merchant processing services application, and other materials and content (through online forms, cookies, widgets, log files and clear gifs) (“User Content”), B.I.G. may collect “Personal Information,” which is information that directly or indirectly identifies an individual or which relates to an identifiable individual. Personal Information does not include anonymized information or aggregated data about a group or category of Services, features, or users which does not contain personally identifying information and which helps us better understand our Clients’ needs and improve our Services.

This includes identifying information such as your name, address, e-mail address, social security number or EIN telephone number, and credit card number, credit information, credit card/bank information, IP address, type of web browser used or other financial information. We also may request other demographic information. We may occasionally ask for your feedback via a survey in order to improve our Services and Platform. Your participation in these surveys is completely voluntary.

Information from other sources. We may also periodically obtain both Personal Information and non-Personal Information about you from other business partners, contractors, and other third parties. Examples of information that we may receive include (but are not limited to): updated contact and address information, order history, and information from third-party service providers such as LinkedIn, Facebook or Instagram with whom your account may be connected. Please note that these third-party service providers have different privacy policies and practices that are not subject to this Privacy Policy.

Use of Cookies and Other Technologies. We use various technologies to collect information from your computer and about your activities on our Platform.

Widgets. Widgets are interactive mini-programs that run on our site to provide specific services from another company (e.g., links to bookmarked sites), along with buttons or other tools that link to other companies’ services (e.g., a “Like” button or third-party map). The widget, button or tool may collect and automatically send Personal Information, such as a User’s e-mail address, or other information (such as a User’s browser information, or IP address), to a third party. Information collected or used by a widget, button, or tool, including cookie settings and preferences, are governed by and subject to the privacy policy of the company that created it.

Other technologies. We may use standard Internet technology, such as web beacons and other similar technologies, to track your use of our Platform. We also may include web beacons (also known as clear gifs, pixel tags, or web bugs) in promotional or other e-mail messages or newsletters to determine whether messages have been opened and acted upon. The information we obtain in this manner enables us to customize the Services we offer our website visitors to deliver targeted advertisements and to measure the overall effectiveness of our online advertising, content, programming, or other activities.

The security of your Personal Information is very important to B.I.G. We use physical, electronic, and administrative safeguards that are designed to protect Personal Information from loss, misuse, and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, and destruction. In addition, B.I.G. uses standard security protocols and access control mechanisms to exchange the transmission of sensitive data such as credit card and banking details. We cannot, however, guarantee the confidentiality or security of your browser or any unencrypted communication transmitted or accessible over the Internet. It is important for you to protect against unauthorized access to your password and to your computer. Be sure to sign off when finished using a shared computer.

State and Federal Law. B.I.G. represents and warrants that its collection, access, use, storage, disposal and disclosure of Personal Information does and will comply with all applicable federal and state privacy and data protection laws, as well as all other applicable regulations and directives, provided that Client specifically acknowledges and agrees that B.I.G. is not acting on your behalf as a business associate or subcontractor.  

B.I.G. does not represent, warrant, or guarantee that Personal Information will be protected against unauthorized access, loss, misuse, or alterations. Similarly, B.I.G. disclaims liability for Personal Information and User Content submitted through its Platform. In the event that your Personal Information is acquired, or you or B.I.G. reasonably believes that your Personal Information has been acquired, by an unauthorized person and applicable law requires notification, B.I.G. will promptly notify you by e-mail, fax, or U.S. mail, consistent with the reasonable needs of law enforcement and/or B.I.G. in order to determine the scope of the breach and to investigate and restore the integrity of the data system.

Security Breach Procedures. B.I.G. will inform Client within fourteen (14) business days if B.I.G. determines that Client Information has been subject to a Security Breach. Notification shall be made by telephone, mail, or email to B.I.G.’s primary business contact with Client. B.I.G. will promptly investigate any Security Breach and take reasonable measures to identify its root cause(s) and prevent a recurrence. As information is collected or otherwise becomes available, B.I.G. will provide Client with a description of the Security Breach, the type of data that was the subject of the Security Breach, and other information Client may reasonably request concerning the affected persons. B.I.G. will coordinate in good faith with Client to develop the content of any related public statements or any required notices for the affected persons.


The B.I.G. Platform is not directed at children under the age of 18 nor is it directed at consumers. By using the Platform, you acknowledge that any User Content or other information provided to B.I.G. that contains the Personal Information of children is provided solely by, and with the full consent of, the parent or guardian. B.I.G. does not knowingly collect or solicit any information from anyone under the age of 18 or knowingly allow such persons to register for the Sites or Services. In the event that we learn that we have collected Personal Information from a child under age 18 without parental consent, we will delete that information as quickly as reasonably possible.


Although most changes are likely to be minor, B.I.G. may change its Privacy Policy from time to time, in our sole discretion. B.I.G. encourages Clients and other users to frequently check this page for any changes to its Privacy Policy. If you have an account with B.I.G., you should also check your account’s notifications for alerts to these changes. Your continued use of the Platform after any change in this Privacy Policy will constitute your acceptance of such changes.
