What Type of Information We Collect

Personal Information

DYC collects personally identifiable information when you purchase and you use certain DYC products and services. DYC may also receive personally identifiable information from its resellers and other affiliates and partners.

When you purchase products we ask for your contact information (such as your name, street address and e-mail address), as well as certain information pertaining to your purchase along with billing information such as a bank account and/or credit card number.

In the course of processing a payment transaction, we typically receive from the merchant or a financial institution information related to the transaction. This normally includes information about the payment that a consumer has furnished the merchant or financial institution in placing the order. We do not acquire any information directly from consumers through the www.dyc.org Web site.

DYC uses the information collected to fulfill your requests for certain products and services, to process payment transactions, to facilitate billing, and otherwise deliver the payment gateway services. We do not sell rent or otherwise provide any one else that information. Personally identifiable consumer information is used to process payment transactions and for no other purpose.

DYC does not offer services or sell products to children. DYC does not request or knowingly collect personally identifiable contact information from anyone under the age of 13.
