transactions requested by you and protect you against fraudulent uses of this data. The types of information NextPay collects include your name,
address, telephone number, email address and bank account or credit card data. None of this information is collected without you voluntarily

records, account, and funds; to comply with certain laws and regulations; and to help us design and enhance our products and services offerings so
that NextPay may provide you with quality products, services, and superior customer support. NextPay does not license, sell, rent or trade any
collected business information, including contact information or specific information about your accounts or other personally identifiable information
unless: (i) you request or authorize it; (ii) information is provided to help complete a transaction initiated by you; (iii) information is provided to a
reputable credit bureau or similar information reporting agency; or (iv) the disclosure otherwise is lawfully permitted or requested.
Customer's Inquiries. When you complete and submit a form on our website, send us an e-mail, send us a fax, or contact us by telephone to solicit
information about our services or the company in general, NextPay may store the inquiries and their contents. Information you submit via an inquiry

an inquiry will not be disclosed to any third party; provided that such information may be shared internally with our affiliated entities for the business
purposes set forth above.

be required to provide us with certain information about your business, and its owners and officers, which may also act as guarantors of the
Merchant's obligations. NextPay may also obtain and store information about the Merchant, and its officers, owners and guarantors, from consumer

card associations, banks and other financial institutions that are involved in the course of processing or screening the transaction, and to third parties
that have contracted with NextPay to perform certain functions of our services on our behalf. In addition, NextPay may use, or disclose your
information to third parties for the additional purposes of facilitating and completing merchant-initiated or authorized transactions, complying with
federal, state and local laws, including credit reporting laws and card association rules, assisting in preventing fraud, or informing you about general
company news, product updates and developments, card association rules, and industry trends, offering you products and services that may be of
interest to you, or as otherwise may be permitted or required by applicable law.
Customers of Our Merchants. If you purchase a product or service from a Merchant using a credit or debit card, or any other method of payment for
which NextPay provides the Merchant with transaction processing services, you will likely provide that Merchant with certain personal information
which may include, for example, your name and credit card number. Our Merchants may transmit certain of this information ("Order Information"), to
NextPay for the purpose of processing the transaction. NextPay will use Order Information during the course of providing processing services to
such Merchant. During the course of providing processing services to our Merchants, NextPay may disclose Order Information to banks,
processors, credit and debit card organizations and associations, and other financial institutions that are involved in the course of effecting the
transaction represented by the Order Information. In addition, NextPay may disclose some or all of the information NextPay collects, to our affiliated
companies or to non-affiliated third parties (subject to contractual confidentiality provisions to protect such information) such as a vendor or service
company that NextPay hires to prepare our Merchants' account statements or to provide support or services for one or more of our products.
NextPay will not disclose Order Information to any third party, except to facilitate and complete transactions submitted to us by Merchants, or
otherwise in the course of providing services to our Merchants, or to comply with federal, state and local laws or the rules and regulations of the
respective card organizations or other payment entities (e.g. Visa, MasterCard, American Express, NACHA, etc.).
Cookies. To help make our sites more responsive to the needs of our visitors, NextPay uses a standard feature of browser software, called a
"cookie," to assign each visitor a unique, random number, a sort of user ID, if you will, that resides on your computer. The cookie doesn't actually
identify the visitor, just the computer that a visitor uses to access our site. Unless you voluntarily identify yourself (through registration, for example),
NextPay won't know who you are, even if NextPay assigns a cookie to your computer. The only personal information a cookie can contain is
information you supply. A cookie can't read unrelated data off your hard drive. Our advertisers and the third parties that provide products or services
tailor our site to your needs, to deliver a better, more personalized service. In this light cookies are used to retain only information such as address
and billing information that you request us to retain. No information is retained without you initiating the action. Of course, you can set your browser
not to accept cookies, but if you do, you may not be able to take advantage of the personalized features enjoyed by other visitors to our site.

when you visit our site, including the type of browser software you use, the operating system you're running, the resolution of your computer
monitor, the website that referred you, and your IP address. (Your IP address is a numerical address that is used by computers connected to the
Internet to identify your computer so that data (such as the web pages you want to view) can be transmitted to you. NextPay also uses IP address

may be used to collect and store information about user visits, such as the user's anonymous cookie ID, page visits and duration, and the specific
ad or link(s) that the user clicked on to visit the site. No personally identifiable information is stored on these cookies or web pixels. This user
activity information is reported to us in aggregate and is anonymous. NextPay uses this information in aggregate to understand, for example, the
effectiveness of our advertising and marketing.
