We may also ask you to send us additional documentation or to answer additional questions to help verify your information.
  • Information obtained from third parties - In order to protect you from fraud or other misconduct, we may obtain information about you from third parties to verify the information you provide. For example, we may use card authorization and fraud screening services to verify that your credit or debit card information and address match the information that you provided to us. Also, for merchants, we may obtain information about you and your business from a credit bureau or other sources such as public records or private business information services.

We will not sell, share, or rent this information to third parties, except as set forth in this Privacy Policy. We will not use any of your Personal Information to send you any promotional materials or advertisements. If you are a merchant or an affiliate of an eQuire merchant, you may from time to time receive from us important updates about our Services. If you are a customer, you may receive from us order/cancellation e-mail confirmations that are automatically generated whenever an order/cancellation is placed through us and that confirm your purchase or cancellation with important details about your purchase or cancellation, including but not limited to, product purchased/cancelled, order/cancellation date, username/password and our customer service telephone number that may be used for any inquiries about the purchase/cancellation.

Legal Basis for Processing Your Personal Information

Our legal basis for collecting and using the Personal Information described above will depend on the personal information concerned and the specific context in which we collect it. However, we will normally collect Personal Information from you only where:

  • We have your consent to do so
  • We need the personal information to perform a contract with you
  • The processing is in our legitimate interests and not overridden by your rights or
  • We have a legal obligation to collect Personal Information from you
"Legitimate interests" means the interests of our company in conducting and managing our business to enable us to give you the best service/products and the best and most secure experience. For example: we have an interest in keeping our network secure. It can also apply to processing that is in your interests as well. For example: we may process your Personal Information to protect you against fraud when transacting on our website. We process Personal Information for certain legitimate business purposes, which include some or all of the following:

  • To enhance, modify, personalize or otherwise improve our services/communications for the benefit of our customers
  • To identify and prevent fraud
  • To enhance the security of our network and information systems

When processing your Personal Information for our legitimate interests, we make sure to consider and balance any potential impact on you (both positive and negative) and your rights under the data protection laws. Our legitimate business interests do not automatically override your interests – we will not use your Personal Information for activities where our interests are overridden by the impact on you (unless we have your consent or are otherwise required or permitted by law). If you have any concerns about the processing, you have the right to object to processing that is based on our legitimate interests. For more information on your rights, please see “Your Rights” section below.


You may choose whether or not to provide Personal Information to us. If you choose not to provide the Personal Information we request, you can still visit most of eQuire's Website, but you will be unable to setup an account with us and/or use our Services for your websites. If you choose to have a relationship with us, such as a contractual or other business relationship, you will be required to provide Personal Information in connection with such relationship.


We have implemented security policies, rules and technical measures to protect the Personal Information that we have under our control from unauthorized access, improper use or disclosure, unauthorized modification, unlawful destruction or accidental loss. eQuire utilizes HTTP Secure (HTTPS) and/or Transport Layer Security (TLS) when receiving and transmitting information electronically.

We protect Personal Information by maintaining physical, electronic and procedural safeguards in compliance with all applicable regulations. We use computer safeguards such as firewalls and data encryption, we enforce physical access controls to our buildings and files, and we authorize access to personal information only for those employees who require it to fulfill their job responsibilities.

Finally, your Personal Information is disposed by shredding paper records and by the use of the shred tool that ensures that any and all electronically stored files are permanently removed from hard disks and any other electronic media which are then also physically destroyed before being disposed.
