Privacy Policy




Thank you for visiting
www.MuniciPAY.com. This page will give you an overview of our privacy policy, what information we collect when you visit our site and how that information is used.

Privacy Policy Updates
If we decide to modify the following privacy policy at www.MuniciPAY.com, we will post the changes here so you will always know what types of information our site gathers and how we will use that data. Please continue to visit this area of our site so you will be continually aware of our privacy policy. This policy was last updated on 3.19.2013.

Information Gathered
When you make a payment online or register as a user of MuniciPAY, we must collect information about you in order to process your payment or provide you your account information. The types of information we collect may include the following:

We will occasionally send you service announcements, policy/procedure updates and information regarding MuniciPAY software enhancements.

Information Sharing and Disclosure
We will only send information about you to other companies when:
  • we have your consent to share the information
  • we need to share your information to provide the product or service you have requested (i.e. printing your merchant statement). We may also release personally identifiable information when we believe release is appropriate to:
    • comply with the law
    • enforce or apply our Merchant Agreement or other agreements
    • protect the rights, property or safety of Nationwide Payment Solutions (NPS), our users, or others. This includes exchanging information with other companies and organizations for fraud protection and risk reduction. In the unlikely event that NPS is acquired, merchant account information may be one of the transferred assets.

We may also share statistical data with our business partners for public relations and marketing purposes. For example, we may disclose the percentage of customers who make payments with a credit card vs. checking account. This information will never be tied to any personally identifiable information.

Valuable Offers from Our Business Partners that we send on Their Behalf
Service notifications related to your account(s): You may decline to receive e-mail offers from NPS at any time. We do not provide your e-mail address to any other companies for them to market their products or services to you.

Cookies
MuniciPAY uses session cookies containing encrypted information to allow the system to uniquely identify you while you are logged in. This information allows MuniciPAY to process electronic payment transactions. Session cookies help us make sure you are who you say you are and are required in order to use MuniciPAY. Standing alone, cookies do not identify you personally. They merely recognize your browser and only exist during an online session. They disappear from your computer when you close your browser software or turn off your computer.

Information Security
NPS works to protect the security of your information during transmission by using Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) software. We store information gathered on secure computers located in a locked data center that a limited number of our employees have access to. We use firewalls and other security technology to prevent our computers from being accessed by unauthorized persons. We also require that any personally identifiable consumer information sent to us by you be encrypted using SSL encryption.

NPS is compliant with the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) as a Level 1 Service Provider. Security measures needed to pass this level of compliance include: physical, electronic, and procedural safeguards; sophisticated security monitoring tools; documented security policies; restricting access to confidential information and periodic security audits by third party security experts.
