Technical Information Collected Automatically

We may collect certain technical information about your visits to our check order websites without you actively submitting such information, including for the purpose of advertising our products to you. Please see Vericast's Privacy Policy for more information.

Information Provided by Our Business Partners

Our advertising vendors and other partners may share with us the information they collect. For example, our advertising vendors may share information with us regarding our ads on websites or apps where such ads run to measure and improve those ads, including information like whether clicks on ads led to purchases or a list of criteria to use in targeting ads.

We may obtain information from our other partners, such as co-sponsors who we may occasionally partner with to run special contests or other co-branded promotions.

We may receive information about consumers when we acquire part or all of other companies.

We may receive information about you from your financial institution so that we can fulfill your order, which may serve purposes such as verifying your identity, confirming your account information, and processing your payment.

We may combine the information we collect through one or more of our online environments with information we collect through other online environments. We may also combine information collected through our online environments with information collected through our offline environments, as well as with information provided by our partners. We use this consolidated information to help us improve our online environments, products and services, communicate information to you, enhance our marketing and research activities, and engage in any other uses described in the "How We Use Information We Collect" section below.

How We Use Information We Collect

Harland Clarke uses the information we collect to provide our products and services to you, improve our products and services, develop new products and services, and protect ourselves, our Clients, and our consumers. We may also use your information to provide you with order confirmation and shipment notifications. Unless you ask us not to, we may also use your information to communicate with you about products, services, and promotions in the future.

Harland Clarke may provide your information to third-party service providers who assist us in fulfilling your order, as well as to your financial institution for customer verification and fraud prevention purposes. All of our third-party service providers are required by contract not to otherwise disclose your Personal Information or use it for any purpose other than in strict accordance with our guidance and instructions. More information about the sharing of your information with third parties is found below in the When and Why Harland Clarke Discloses Your Information section.

If you place an order with us, the information we collect may be used to maintain your order history, provide you with access to some features of our online environments, or offer you the benefits and privileges that are provided to past customers. This may include purchasing products or services or use of exclusive or personalized content or activities.

We may also use the information we collect for other legitimate business purposes, such as to:

Some of our applications and mobile-optimized online environments may have location-based features. To deliver these features, we may access and use location data provided by your mobile device. Location information will be collected solely to deliver the requested feature, and it will not be further retained or stored by us.

If you provide an email address, Harland Clarke has your permission to send you email messages using an automatic emailing system for commercial or transactional purposes. We may contact you via email for purposes of servicing your account, which may include sending you order confirmation emails, as well as (for check customers) sending you a check reorder reminder.

When and Why Harland Clarke Discloses Your Information

Harland Clarke may disclose each of the categories of Personal Information listed in the section above, Types of Information We Collect, to our third parties in order to provide you with our products and services.

Harland Clarke may use third-party companies to perform services on our behalf and at our direction (with the permission of Clients, when required) to help Harland Clarke communicate with consumers or provide them with products or services. In these instances, Harland Clarke has written agreements that require the parties with whom we share information to keep it safe and confidential and to use it only for the purposes specified. For example:

We may partner with other companies to provide you with products, services, or content on a joint or "co-branded" basis. If we offer co-branded products, services, or content, you will see both our logo and the logo of the co-branded partner. To access co-branded products, services, or content, you may have to provide certain requested information which may be shared with our co-branded partners. You should read the individual privacy statements of our co-branded partners, as these may differ in some respects from ours. Reading these statements will help you to make an informed decision about whether to provide your information. Remember, you can always opt-out of sharing your information with a co-branded partner by choosing not to use the product, service, or content provided by us and the co-branded partner. We may also partner with other companies with which we may share your information for cross-marketing purposes.

Finally, in certain limited circumstances, we may be called upon to release the information we collect for other reasons, such as if we are being acquired or in response to law enforcement. Please see Vericast's Privacy Policy for more information on these kinds of circumstances.
