This form asks for your first and last name, e-mail address, telephone number, Social Security number, and the creation of your unique password. You also provide information about your DDO which includes a mailing address, telephone number, and a support email address. You may include first and last name of others on the account, their telephone number(s), and email. Information about you, your DDO and any members listed may also be obtained from PTY Affiliates or other parties as necessary. We call this information, "DDO Account Information."

Disclosure of Information
We use DDO Account Information in connection with delivering payment services to you which includes, but is not all inclusive, personally identifiable information you agree to provide in the email receipt we send your supporters. In order to conduct financial payment-related transactions and/or to effectively deliver payment services securely to you, while minimizing the risks of financial loss, it is necessary for PTY to communicate such DDO Account Information with ProPay. ProPay may in turn communicate said information with financial institutions such as Visa®, MasterCard®, (Discover® Card Services and American Express if in the future PTY utilizes such services), banking institutions involved in supporting, clearing or settling payment-related transactions, ProPay’s corporate Affiliates and/or other companies ProPay works with.
If PTY is involved in a merger, acquisition, or sale of all or a portion of its assets, you will be notified via email and/or a prominent notice on our Web site of any change in ownership or uses of your personal information, as well as any choices you may have regarding your personal information.
For the DDO Supporter
PTY provides your name, your email, the organization member’s name you list at time of payment or donation, if you provide such information, memo, time of payment, and payment amount to the DDO. At the time you make a donation or a purchase, you have the option to have your email used for marketing purposes by the DDO. If this option is not checked, the DDO may not use your email address for marketing purposes. Before you make a purchase or a donation, if you have any questions or concerns how the DDO will use your email, you will need to contact them.
We may use your Personal Information for the following purposes:
1) To operate, manage, and maintain our business.
2) To provide our services.
3) To accomplish our business purposes and objectives, including: developing, improving, repairing, and maintaining our services; conducting research, analytics, and data analysis; quality and safety assurance measures; conducting risk and security controls and monitoring; detecting and preventing fraud; performing identity verification; performing accounting, audit, and other internal functions; complying with law, legal process, and internal policies; maintaining records; and exercising and defending legal claims.
We take commercially reasonable physical, electronic, and procedural steps to help safeguard your DDO Account Information. Our web site takes precautions to protect your information. When you submit sensitive information via the web site, we take reasonable commercial measures to protect your information both online and offline.
When the registration form or a transaction form asks you to enter sensitive information (such as credit card number, checking account information, and/or your Social Security number), that information is electronically encrypted and is protected using secure socket layer technology (SSL). While on a secure page, such as the registration form or transaction forms, the lock icon in your web browser becomes locked, as opposed to unlocked, or open, when you are just 'surfing'.
While we follow generally accepted standards to protect the personal information submitted to us, both during transmission and once we receive it, we also take additional reasonable commercial measures to protect your information offline. All your information stored by PTY is restricted in our offices. Only employees who need the information to perform a specific job (such as PTY's database administrators, security department employees, and customer service representatives) are granted access to personally identifiable information. Furthermore, all employees are kept up-to-date on our security and privacy practices. Periodically, as well as any time new policies are added, our employees are notified and/or reminded about the importance of privacy and what they can do to ensure our customers' information is protected. The servers that store personally identifiable information are kept in a secure environment. No method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure, however. Therefore, we cannot guarantee its absolute security. If you have any questions about the security at PTY's web site, please contact us at support@PayThankYou.com.
