Visa SavingsEdge® Privacy Policy

Welcome to the Visa SavingsEdge program from Visa Canada Corporation ("Visa", "we" or "us"). Please read below to learn how we collect, protect and use your data as part of this service.

This privacy policy applies both to the eligible corporation, limited liability company, partnership and sole proprietor ("Business") that holds a card enrolled in the Visa SavingsEdge program ("Card") and each individual who uses a Card through the Business ("Cardholder" or "you"). Where the Business directly enrolls Cardholders and Cards in the Program, the Business confirms it has the appropriate authority from each of these Cardholders for the collection, use, and disclosure of personal information described in this privacy policy.

Other Visa products and websites have their own separate privacy policies. The Visa.ca privacy policy does not apply to the Visa SavingsEdge program. This privacy policy does not change or amend the privacy policy that you have received from the financial institution that issued your Visa card.

This privacy policy was first published on May 1, 2013.

How we protect your Personal Information

Visa uses firewalls and Secure Socket Layers to help protect the Personal Information we collect from you when it is being communicated to us. Our policies restrict access to Personal Information to those employees and service providers who need to know the information in order to provide you this service. We maintain physical, electronic and procedural safeguards that comply with applicable privacy and data security laws and regulations.

Visa is part of a global payment network with affiliates, service providers and agents located in and outside of Canada. As result, personal information may be processed and stored in other countries. While we use contractual and other measures to ensure protection of personal information, governments, courts, law enforcement or regulatory agencies in these other countries may be able to obtain disclosure of personal information through the laws of these countries.

Changes to this Privacy Policy

We may change this privacy policy at any time by posting an updated privacy policy to the site. Changes will be effective when you accept the updated privacy policy or 30 days after the "Last Updated" date in the updated privacy policy, whichever comes first. If you don't affirmatively accept the updated privacy policy, your use of the Visa SavingsEdge program after the 30 day posting period means you are subject to the updated privacy policy.
