MONEXgroup provides financial transaction products and services for commercial and non-commercial enterprises. Those products and services include payment card issuing and payment processing services, fraud monitoring services, front and back office customer service and card production services, (collectively referred to as the “Services”).

If you are an end user who has a relationship with one of our customers and you have a question about how your personal information is collected, used, or shared, or would like to exercise any rights you may have with respect to your personal information, please contact our customer(s) directly.

Our Legal Basis for Collecting and Using Personal Information
Our legal basis for collecting, using and storing personal information is one or more of the following:
- Consent: In some cases, we will ask you for your consent to use your personal information, such as when we are using personal information for direct marketing. You can withdraw your consent at any time by using the tools we have provided (such as unsubscribe mechanisms in electronic mail) or by contacting us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
- Legitimate Interest: We process some personal information for the legitimate interest of MONEXgroup, our affiliates, customers and other parties with whom we share personal information to enable us to provide the Services. Those legitimate interests include, providing and maintaining the Services; detecting, preventing and investigating fraud or other unlawful activity; and detecting, preventing and investigating potential security issues. When we rely on legitimate interest for collecting and using personal information, we have procedures in place to ensure that we are balancing our interests and rights against the impact to the individual and their applicable statutory or fundamental rights.
- Performance of a Contract: Sometimes we process personal information to perform our obligations under an agreement with you or with our customers, or with both. For example, we use payment information you provide when you engage in a transaction with a customer.
- Other Legal Bases: In some cases, we may have a legal obligation to collect, use or store your personal information such as in response to a court order or at the direction or a regulatory authority. We may also use your personal information to protect our legal interests or to exercise, establish or defend a legal claim.
How we Share the Personal Information we Collect
We share your personal information in the manner and for the purposes described below:
- With MONEXgroup affiliates where such disclosure is necessary to provide the Services or to manage our business.
- With third-party service providers whose systems, applications, products or services help us to provide the Services. For example, we share personal information with IT service providers who help manage our back-office systems or administer our Apps. These service providers have agreed to confidentiality restrictions and have agreed to use any personal information we share with them, or which they collect on our behalf, for the purpose of providing the contracted service to us.
- With our customers with whom you are also engaging when you use the Services. For example, you may be using a MONEXgroup App to log into your account with our customers. MONEXgroup will share the personal information you provide in order to fulfill your request. You may also receive communications from these customers. Each such customer operates independently from MONEXgroup and their collection and use of your personal information is not subject to this Policy but to their own privacy policies.
- With other third parties including financial institutions such as Visa® and MasterCard® Card services, and banking institutions involved in supporting, clearing or settling payment-related transactions.
We do not sell your personal information to third parties.
Our Relationship with Affiliate Companies (Including Sharing & Cross-Border Transfers)
Subject to your consent if required by law, we may appoint an affiliate company to process personal information in a service provider role. In most cases, we will remain responsible for that company’s processing of your personal information pursuant to applicable data privacy laws. Because our affiliate companies are located around the globe, your personal information may be transferred to and stored in Canada, the United States, or in another country outside of the country in which you reside, which may be subject to different standards of data protection than your country of residence. We will take appropriate steps to ensure that transfers of personal information are in accordance with applicable law, are carefully managed to protect your privacy rights and interests and limited to countries which are recognized as providing an adequate level of legal protection or where alternative adequate arrangements are in place to protect your privacy rights.
Login Details & Your Responsibility
Subject to your consent if required by law, we will collect and process your personal information as necessary to set up and administer your sign up to, and use of, the log in facility available on our Apps. We will use “cookies” to “remember” the machine or other device you use to access our Apps (see “Cookies and Other Tracking Technologies” below). Please remember that if we contact you, we will never ask you for your password in an unsolicited email, message or phone call. If you choose to use the log in facility available on our Apps, you are required to adhere to the security procedures we establish in the documentation we provide you as part of the Services.
How we Protect and Dispose of Personal Information
We maintain administrative, technical and physical safeguards designed to protect the personal information you provide against accidental, unlawful or unauthorized destruction, loss, alteration, access, disclosure or use. Please remember that communications over the internet such as emails are not secure. We seek to keep secure all confidential information and personal information submitted to us in accordance with our obligations under applicable laws and regulations. However, like all website operators, we cannot guarantee the security of any data transmitted through the internet. When we no longer need your personal information to provide the Services, it will be securely deleted or de-identified in a manner that ensures you cannot be re-identified. Where we are collecting or storing your personal information on behalf of our customers, the retention of your personal information may be subject to our contractual obligations to our customers.
Cookies and Other Tracking Technologies
A “cookie” is a text file that is stored to your browser when you visit a website. Unique device identifiers like IP addresses or UDIDs recognize a visitor’s computer or other device used to access the internet. Unique device identifiers are used alone and in conjunction with cookies and other tracking technologies for the purpose of “remembering” computers or other devices used to access the Apps. Cookies can be classified by duration and by source:
- Duration. The Apps use both “session” and “persistent” cookies. Session cookies are temporary – they terminate when you close your browser or otherwise end your “active” browsing session. Persistent cookies remember you on subsequent visits. Persistent cookies are not deleted when you close your browser, and they will remain on your computer or other device unless you choose to delete them (see below for “How to Delete or Block Cookies”).
- Source. Cookies can be “first-party” or “third-party” cookies, which means that they are either issued by or on behalf of MONEXgroup or by a third-party operator of another website. For an example of a third-party cookie, our Apps may contain features like videos hosted by other companies, which would set a cookie that can be read by the host. Our Apps may use both first-party and third-party cookies.
The cookies that we may use on the Apps fall into the following categories:
- Strictly Necessary Cookies. These cookies are necessary for the website to function and cannot be switched off in our systems. They are usually only set in response to actions taken by you such as logging in or filling in forms. You can set your browser to block or alert you about these cookies, but blocking them may impede the functionality of the Apps.
- Performance Cookies. These cookies allow us to count visits and traffic sources so we can measure and improve the performance of our Apps. They help us to know which pages are the most and least popular and see how visitors move around the site. All information these cookies collect is aggregated. If you do not allow these cookies we will not know when you have visited our site, and will not be able to monitor its performance.
- Functionality Cookies. These cookies enable the Apps to provide enhanced functionality and personalization. They may be set by us or by third-party providers whose services we have added to our pages. If you do not allow these cookies then some of these services may not function properly.
- Targeting Cookies. These cookies may be set through our Apps by our advertising partners. They may be used by those companies to build a profile of your interests and show you relevant advertisements on other sites. They are based on uniquely identifying your browser and internet device. If you do not allow these cookies, you will experience less targeted advertising.
How to Delete or Block Cookies
On some Apps, when technically feasible, we will enable tools to help you make choices about cookies. You may also delete or block cookies at any time by changing your browser settings. You can click “Help” in the toolbar of your browser for instruction or review the cookie management guide produced by the Interactive Advertising Bureau available at www.allaboutcookies.org. If you delete or block cookies, some features of the Apps may not function properly.
MONEXgroup may provide links on our Apps to other websites that are not under our control. We do not endorse or make any warranty of any type regarding the content contained on such websites or products and services offered on those websites. We make no representation regarding your use of such websites. Please be aware that we are not responsible for the privacy practices of the operators of other websites. We encourage our users to be aware when they leave our Apps and to read the privacy statements of each and every website that collects personal information. This Policy applies solely to information collected by us. You should read any other applicable privacy and cookies policies carefully before accessing and using such other websites.
Managing Your Preferences
We will take steps to seek to ensure that any direct marketing from us and which is sent by electronic means will provide a simple means for you to stop further communications, in accordance with applicable law. For example, in emails, we may provide you with an “unsubscribe” link, or an email address to which you can send an opt-out request. In addition, if we need your consent for direct marketing communications under applicable law, and if you provide your consent, you will be able to change your mind at any time.
Your Legal Rights
If you use our Apps for the purpose of engaging with one of our customers and have questions about legal rights you may have with respect to your personal information collected by our customer(s), please consult the customer with which you have engaged.
