Updating Your Information.
As a customer of Pulse Tech Solutions, you may alter your customer information or opt-out of receiving communications from us and our partners at any time.
We use emails to communicate with you, to confirm your placed orders, and to send information that you have requested. We also provide email links, as on our “Contact Us” page, to allow you to contact us directly. We strive to promptly reply to your messages.
The information you send to us may be stored and used to improve this site and our products, or it may be reviewed and discarded. However, your information will never be shared with any third party.
Changes in Our Practices
We use a credit card processing company to bill users for goods and services. These companies do not retain, share, store or use personally identifiable information for any secondary purposes.
Information Collection and Use
Pulse Tech Solutions collects personally identifiable information when you use certain Pulse Tech Solutions products and services. Pulse Tech Solutions may also receive personally identifiable information from its resellers and other business partners.
When you register with Pulse Tech Solutions, we ask for your contact information (such as your name, street address and email address), as well as certain information pertaining to your business, along with billing information such as a bank account and/or credit card number.
In the course of processing a payment transaction, we typically receive from the merchant or a financial institution information related to the transaction. This normally includes information about the payment that a consumer has furnished the merchant or financial institution in placing the order. We do not acquire any information directly from consumers through the website.
The personally identifiable information we acquire in processing payment transactions varies according to the nature of the transaction and the way in which merchants or financial institutions are using our payment services. It may include, for example, the amount of the transaction, the consumer’s name, credit card number and expiration date, checking account number, billing address, and shipping address.
Pulse Tech Solutions uses the information collected to fulfill your requests for certain products and services, to process payment transactions, to facilitate billing, and otherwise deliver the payment gateway services. We may also send merchants service announcements, newsletters, and periodic notices about specials, new products and services and products and services offered by Pulse Tech Solutions business partners. Personally identifiable consumer information is used to process payment transactions and for no other purpose.
Pulse Tech Solutions does not offer services or sell products to children. Pulse Tech Solutions does not request or knowingly collect personally identifiable contact information from anyone under the age of 18.
From time-to-time our site requests information from users via surveys and contests. Participation in these surveys or contests is completely voluntary and the user therefore has a choice whether or not to disclose this information. Information requested may include contact information (such as name and shipping address), and demographic information (such as zip code, age level – you must be 18 or above to enter). Contact information will be used to notify the winners and award prizes. Survey information will be used for purposes of monitoring or improving the use and satisfaction of this site.
If a user elects to use our referral service for informing a friend about our site, we ask them for the friend’s name and email address. Pulse Tech Solutions will automatically send the friend a one-time email inviting them to visit the site. Pulse Tech Solutions stores this information for the sole purpose of sending this one-time email.
What Happens to my Personal Information if I Terminate my Pulse Tech Solutions Account?
When Your Pulse Tech Solutions account is cancelled (either voluntarily or involuntarily) all of your personally identifiable information is placed in “deactivated” status on our relevant databases. However, you should know that deactivation of your account does not mean your personally identifiable information has been deleted from our database entirely. We will retain and use your personally identifiable information if necessary in order to resolve disputes or enforce our agreements.
