MineralTree Privacy Notice

Last Updated: December 19, 2023

MineralTree, Inc., a Global Payments company (“MineralTree,” “we,” “us”), respects your concerns about privacy. In this Privacy Notice (the “Notice”), we describe how we collect and process personal information about users of our websites, blogs, social media pages, and other online media. We also describe how we collect and process personal information about our prospects and customers, about the end users of our solutions, and about internet users and other individuals for cybersecurity and threat assessment purposes.

Please note that if you do not fall within any of those categories, this Notice does not apply to you. For example, MineralTree provides solutions that improve and automate key financial processes for businesses, and our business customers (“Customers”) use those solutions to collect and process personal information about their own contacts, such as the individuals to whom they owe payments for services. If you are an individual whose personal information was collected and processed by one of our business Customers using one of our solutions, and you have questions about that Customer’s privacy practices, you should refer to that Customer’s privacy notice or contact that Customer directly. Additionally, MineralTree maintains specific privacy notices for job applicants, employees, and contractors through Global Payments. If you are a job applicant, employee, or contractor and need a copy of the applicable privacy notice, please contact us at [email protected].

Please read this Notice carefully. If you have any questions, you may contact us at [email protected] or by the methods provided in the Contact Us section below.

This Notice covers the following topics:

Data Anonymization and Aggregation

Subject to your consent if required by law, we may anonymize or aggregate personal information about you so that you are not identified or identifiable from it, in order to use the anonymized or aggregated data, for example, for statistical analysis (including analysis of trends), to carry out actuarial work, to tailor products and services, and to conduct risk assessments and analyses of costs and charges in relation to our products and services. We may share anonymized or aggregated data with our global affiliates and with other third parties, and this Notice does not restrict our use or disclosure of any anonymized or aggregated information.

Where we maintain or use de-identified information, we will continue to maintain and use the de-identified information only in a de-identified fashion and will not attempt to re-identify the information.

Sources of Personal Information

Information that you provide to us: We collect personal information that you provide to us when you contact us, set up an account with us, use our solutions, or otherwise interact with us. For example, if you use a web form to request information from us, we may ask for your name, contact information, and information about your business. Providing us with personal information is voluntary, and you can always choose not to provide certain information, but then you may not be able to take advantage of or participate in some of our solutions and services.

Information collected from third parties: We collect personal information about you from third parties in the course of providing our services. For example, we may collect Basic Identifying Information and Commercial Information from a referral partner or other third party in order to contact you about the services and solutions we provide. We may also receive business-related information about you from third-party companies that supplement our business customer records with, for example, professional information.

Information collected through technology: When you visit our websites, use our solutions, or interact with an email we send to you, we may collect certain information automatically, including your account or device identifier and usage information such as the pages that you visit, the links you click, the types of content you interact with, the frequency and duration of your activities, and other information about how you use our services. You have the ability to express your preference regarding some of the ways we collect information through technology in some of our services (see “Cookies and Other Tracking Technologies” for more information). When you download and use our Apps, we and our service providers may track and collect App usage data, such as the date and time the App on your device accesses our servers and what information and files have been downloaded to the App based on your device number.

Subject to your consent if required by law, we may use your personal information for the following business and commercial purposes:

  • To provide services to you;
  • To contact you regarding any inquiry you make or to fulfill a request, such as, for example, a request for information about our solutions and services or to provide customer support;
  • To contact you if you have signed up for e-newsletters or any other updates, communications or publications;
  • To verify or maintain the quality and safety of our solutions and services and to repair, improve, upgrade, or enhance our services and solutions;

  • To track information about our interactions with you, including, but not limited to, counting advertising impressions to unique visitors and verifying positioning and quality of advertising impressions;
  • To send you direct marketing material, subject to your consent if required by applicable law (see “Managing Your Preferences” below); and
  • To comply with applicable laws and regulations.

How We Disclose the Personal Information We Collect

We are a Global Payments company, meaning we are a part of a multinational family of businesses headquartered in the United States, with affiliates in countries around the world.

For each category of personal information we collect, we may disclose such information in the manner and for the purposes described below:

  • With companies engaged to help us run our business, subject to your consent if required by law. These types of companies may include resellers and distributors of our solutions; service providers retained to perform functions on our behalf or to provide services to us, including (without limitation) legal, accounting, audit, consulting and other professional service providers; and providers of other services related to our business. Portions of our services may be provided by organizations with which MineralTree has a contractual relationship, including subcontractors, and, accordingly, your personal information may be disclosed to them;
  • With third parties with whom you have a relationship, such as a financial institution or independent sales organization who referred you to MineralTree for services;
  • With logistics service providers to enable the delivery of packages to individuals;
  • With other third parties to whom you direct us disclose to personal information;

  • In response to a court order or a request for cooperation from a regulatory, law enforcement or other government agency; to establish or exercise our legal rights; to defend legal claims; or as otherwise required or permitted by applicable laws and/or regulations;

  • To third parties in connection with any proposed or actual reorganization, merger, sale, joint venture, assignment, transfer or other disposition of all or any portion of our assets or stock (including in connection with any bankruptcy or similar proceedings).

The cookies and tracking technologies that we may use fall into the following categories:

Our Relationship with Affiliate Companies (Including Disclosures and Cross-Border Transfers)

Subject to your consent if required by applicable law, we may appoint an affiliate company to process personal information in a service provider role. We will remain responsible for that company’s processing of personal information pursuant to applicable data privacy laws.

Because our affiliate companies are located around the globe, personal information about you may be transferred to and stored in 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 take appropriate steps to transfer personal information in accordance with applicable law, such as transferring personal information 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.

Data Security and Data Retention

We maintain administrative, technical and physical safeguards designed to protect your personal information against accidental, unlawful or unauthorized destruction, loss, alteration, access, disclosure or use.

We retain the personal information we collect for different periods of time depending on what it is and how we use it. In some contexts, we will provide additional information about retention as you use the solutions and services. When we collect personal information, we will retain it only for as long as is necessary to complete the legitimate business or legal purposes for which we collected it. The criteria used to determine our retention periods include:

  • The length of time we have an ongoing relationship with you and provide services to you, for example, for as long as you have an account with us or continue to use our services, and the length of time thereafter during which we may have a legitimate need to reference personal information to address issues that may arise;
  • Whether there is a contractual obligation to which we are subject, for example, our contracts with our Customers may specify a certain period of time during which we are required to maintain the information on behalf of our Customers;
  • Whether there is a legal obligation to which we are subject, for example, certain laws require us to keep records of your transactions for a certain period of time before we can delete them; and
  • Whether retention is advisable in light of our legal position, such as in regard to applicable statutes of limitations, litigation or regulatory investigations.

Login Details and Your Responsibility

If you use our solutions, we will collect and process personal information about you as necessary to set up and administer an account for you. It is your responsibility to protect the login credentials that you set up and/or we provide to you from compromise, and you are required to adhere to the security procedures we establish in any documentation we provide you as part of the services.

Managing Your Preferences

Subject to your consent if required by applicable law, we may use personal information to provide you with direct marketing information about our products and services as well as those of our global affiliates and third parties. Our direct marketing may occur through email, telephone, post or SMS or such other method(s) as may become relevant.

We will take steps to ensure that any direct marketing from us will provide a simple means for you to stop further communications, in accordance with applicable law. For example, in email, 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. Please note that if you opt out of receiving marketing-related communications from us, we may still send you administrative, transactional, or information messages, from which you cannot opt out.


Our websites and solutions are not directed to children or intended for use by children. We do not solicit or knowingly accept any personal information from persons under the age of 18. Please do not use our websites, services, or solutions if you are under the age of 18.

Do Not Sell or Share My Personal Information

The websites and solutions use cookies, including some cookies that are created by other companies and placed on your browser when you visit our website. We use those cookies to improve your experience and to gather information about our customers and the performance of our website. However, the companies who provide those cookies to us also have access to the data collected through them, and they may use that data for targeted advertising purposes. Our use of those third-party cookies could therefore be considered a “share” of your personal information under California law or processing for targeted advertising under other privacy laws.
