The personal data we collect

We collect personal data about individuals from various sources described below. Where applicable, we indicate whether and why individuals must provide us with personal data, as well as the consequences of failing to do so.
A. Information that we collect when a merchant’s customer interacts with a NPS POS or other NPS payment method
(i) Information that we collect when individuals make a payment
When you make a payment at a merchant using a NPS Point of Sale system (“NPS POS”), the NPS Payment Gateway, the NPS App, the NPS Go App, or any other related payment method that NPS makes available, we collect information about the transaction, which may include personal data. Information about transactions includes the payment card used, name associated with the payment card, electronic signature, name and location of the merchant at which the transaction occurred, date and time of the transaction, transaction amount, and information about the goods or services purchased in the transaction.
(ii) Additional information merchants’ customers may provide through the NPS POS
We may collect additional information, depending on how a merchant configures its NPS POS. This information may include:
Your email address or phone number, for example, if you choose to receive an electronic receipt or opt-in to receive marketing communications
Your marketing preferences, such as whether you wish to receive marketing communications or newsletters
Information about your participation in a merchant’s loyalty program, if offered and if you choose to participate
Other information you choose to enter into the NPS POS, such as your birthdate, interests or preferences, reviews, and feedback.
B. Information that we collect from merchants about their customers
Our merchants may provide us with information about their customers. This information may include uploaded email addresses, phone numbers, and purchase history, for instance when we manage promotions or marketing communications or perform other services on behalf of a merchant.
C. Information that we collect about merchants and their personnel
We may collect personal data directly from merchants (including prospective customers) about themselves and their personnel. We may collect information from these parties in a variety of contexts, such as when completing one of our online forms, making an application for one of our products or services, interacting with us on social media, or corresponding with us. The types of information we obtain in these contexts include:
Contact information of the business entity and its personnel who interact with us, such as name, job title, address, telephone number, and email address
Profile information, such as username and password that an individual may establish on one of our websites or mobile applications, along with any other information that an individual enters into their account profile
Demographic details, such as date of birth, country of citizenship and/or country of residence
Information about individuals’ affiliation with a legal entity, such as an individual’s role, and whether he or she is a beneficial owner or authorized signatory
Government-issued identification numbers (to the extent permitted under applicable law), such as a national identification number (e.g., a Social Security Number, tax identification number, or passport number), state or local identification number (e.g., a Driver’s License or other government-issued identification number), and a copy of your government-issued identification card
Feedback and correspondence, such as information you provide when you request information from us, receive customer support, or otherwise correspond with us, including by interacting with our pages on social networking online sites or services
Financial account information, such as payment card or bank account details
Information about merchants, such as merchant name, merchant ID and category code, merchant location where a transaction occurred, and information about transactions processed by the merchant, including transaction volume, velocity, amounts, types of goods or services sold, and chargeback ratios
Information about merchants, such as merchant name, merchant ID and category code, merchant location where a transaction occurred, and information about transactions processed by the merchant, including transaction volume, velocity, amounts, types of goods or services sold, and chargeback ratios

Information about a merchant’s personnel and their interaction with the NPS POS, such as clock-in and clock-out time, tips earned, and additional job-related information depending on how the merchant configures its NPS POS
Marketing information, such as your preferences for receiving marketing communications, merchant surveys, and details about how you engage with our marketing communications
D. Information collected via third-party applications
A merchant may choose to install third-party applications on its NPS POS, much like an individual can install applications on their mobile phone or tablet device. NPS may receive personal data about merchants, merchant’s customers, or merchant’s personnel as a result of the merchant’s use of the third-party application, such as when the application enhances or performs services related to the personal data and returns information to the merchant’s account. We are not responsible for the privacy practices of third-party applications that are run on the NPS POS or the scope or quality of the data that such an application transmits to us; however, we will treat the data we receive from the third-party application in accordance with this Privacy Notice.
E. Information that we collect about job applicants to NPS
We collect information about job applicants, such as name and contact information, professional credentials and skills, educational and work history, and other information of the type included on a resume or curriculum vitae. We may collect this information when an individual provides it to us directly or when another party, such as a recruiter, provides it.
F. Information that we collect from private and publicly accessible sources
We and our service providers may collect information about individuals that is publicly available, including by searching publicly accessible government lists of restricted or sanctioned persons (such as the Specially Designated Nationals And Blocked Persons List), public records databases (such as company registries and regulatory filings), and by searching media and the internet. We and or our third party verification providers may also collect information from private or commercially available sources, such as by requesting reports or information from credit reference and fraud prevention agencies, to the extent permitted under applicable law. We may also maintain pages for our company and our products and services on a variety of third-party platforms, such as LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Instagram, and other social networking services. When individuals interact with our pages on those third-party platforms, the third-party’s privacy policy will govern your interactions on the relevant platform. If the third-party platform provides us with information about our pages on those platforms or your interactions with them (e.g. for lead generation purposes), we will treat that information in accordance with this Privacy Notice.
G. Information collected via automated means
When you access our websites or use our mobile applications, we, our service providers, and our partners may automatically collect information about you, your computer or mobile device, and activity on our websites or mobile applications. Typically, this information includes your computer or mobile device operating system type and version number, manufacturer and model, device identifier (such as the Google Advertising ID or Apple ID for Advertising), browser type, screen resolution, IP address, the website you visited before browsing to our website, general location information such as city, state or geographic area; and information about your use of and actions on or in our websites or mobile applications, such as pages or screens you accessed, how long you spent on a page or screen, navigation paths between pages or screens, information about your activity on a page or screen, access times, and length of access. Certain products or services that we provide or which merchants may incorporate into their websites or mobile applications may automatically collect additional information, as may be further described in a separate privacy notice.
Our service providers and business partners may collect this type of information over time and across third-party websites. This information is collected via various mechanisms, such as via cookies, pixels, tags, web beacons, embedded scripts, through our mobile applications, and similar technologies. This type of information may also be collected when you read our HTML-enabled emails. Please refer to our Cookies Notice for more details. You can choose to disable cookies or to opt out of the use of your browsing behavior for purposes of targeted advertising. For opt out instructions, please review the “Targeted online advertising” portion of the “Your Choices” section of this Privacy Notice.
H. Sensitive personal data
In limited circumstances and when permitted by law, we may collect a merchant’s and/or their employee’s biometric data to confirm a merchant’s and/or their employee’s identity, such as when they authenticate a payment or sign into their NPS device using their fingerprint. In some circumstances, we may collect information that may reveal health or medical information, such as when we process transactions at health or medical facilities or pharmacies. In the context of processing employment applications, we may also request sensitive information, such as racial or ethnic origin, where required or permitted by law of the country in which you are applying for employment.
Outside of these contexts or otherwise as we specifically request, we ask that you not provide us with any sensitive personal data (meaning information revealing racial or ethnic origin, political opinions, religion or philosophical beliefs, trade union membership, genetic, health, or biometric information, information about sex life or sexual orientation, or criminal convictions or offenses) through our websites or mobile applications, or otherwise to us.
I. Information received in connection with the Food Ordering Program
NPS provides merchants with a “Food Ordering Program,” which allows consumers to place orders for food, beverages, and other related products (each, a “Food Order”) by delivery or collection. When you place an order via the Food Ordering Program, we may receive information which may include the following:
Your name, email address, phone number, and delivery address;
Information about transactions, which may include payment card used, name and location of merchant at which the transaction occurred, date and time of transaction, transaction amount, and contents of your order; and
Other information you provide, such as information about your marketing preferences and participation in loyalty programs.
NPS has also partnered with certain third-party companies (e.g. Google) to enable you to order food online from participating NPS merchants directly from those companies’ products such as Google Search, Google Maps, and Google Assistant. When you use this feature to place an order,
NPS receives the same or similar information as it would when you place an order with the Food Ordering Program on NPS directly.
