When fraud is suspected, we will report it to legal authorities; and we will cooperate with any legal authority in the completion of an investigation. During these times, an individual’s personal information will be shared when requested by law enforcement agencies.

There are also times when banks require verification of identity before it will approve a credit card transaction. In these instances, we will notify the user of the bank’s requirements and collect other personal information (e.g., picture ID), in order to pass that on to our third-party payment processor.
