WEX Inc. and WEX Canada Ltd (hereinafter collectively referred to as "WEX") recognize the importance of protecting your privacy and safeguarding the confidentiality of your sensitive information. Because of this, WEX® offers the following statement of our joint commitment to privacy protection. This policy relates specifically to your use of this site.
Information privacy is important to you. Protecting your information privacy is critical to us. Therefore, we commit to:
- Adhere to our privacy policies
- Give you clear notice of what information we ask you to divulge and what information we collect from you
- Clearly explain how we will use the information that you provide to us
- Share your information only with whom and in such manner as is described in this policy
- Implement and utilize safe and secure physical and information systems to protect private information.
Information That We Collect and Use
WEX collects information: 1) from you and from certain third parties when you submit a WEX Inc. Commercial Credit Application; 2) in the form of transaction data when you use your WEX Inc. card; 3) when you submit a request for information about WEX Inc. programs via e-mail; 4) through the use of web tracking software; and 5) from third parties to help us identify products and services which may be useful to you.
- Transaction Data
- When a cardholder uses their Commercial Card we collect transaction data which may be viewed via your online account. Such data typically includes the following information:
- Name of cardholder
- Transaction date
- Card/account number
- Total dollar amount of transaction
- Vehicle number, if any
- Driver identification number, if any
- Vehicle odometer reading, if any, as entered by cardholder
- Amount of fuel purchased, if any
- Price per unit of fuel purchased, if any
- Non-fuel items purchased, if any
- User-established product restrictions, if any
- Merchant at which the transaction occurred
- For certain programs, cardholder contact information
- WEX uses transaction data gathered when you use your WEX Commercial Card for the purpose of processing the transactions as well as for other lawful commercial purposes. The transaction data is critical to our ability to provide billing, electronic bill paying and presentment products ("EBPP") and reporting to you.
- For some WEX commercial card programs, transaction data is collected by a third-party processor and transmitted to WEX. Please refer to Section C(2) below for additional information about information sharing with third parties.
- WEX utilizes web tracking software that allows us to collect and store information such as the name of the domain from which you access the Internet, the date and time that you access our site, the Internet address of the website from which you linked to our site, and the pages that you visited while on our web site.
- WEX uses the information collected as a result of our web tracking software to help diagnose problems with our server, to track user traffic patterns, and to administer our website. This information allows us to determine which areas are of most interest and use to our visitors, which avenues of site promotion are most effective and at what time we can expect peak usage.
- WEX may supplement the information that you provide with additional information we receive from third parties, including service providers, credit bureaus and industry trade groups. We treat any supplemental information we receive from third parties as carefully as the information that you provide to us directly.
- WEX may use aggregated application information or transaction data for internal and external analytical purposes. Further, WEX may utilize aggregated information or data for marketing purposes. However, aggregated information and data will not be identified with any particular applicant, individual customer or individual cardholder.
With Whom We Share the Information We Collect
- Within Our Company:
- WEX may use the personally identifiable information that you provide, such as your postal address and/or e-mail address to send promotions or solicitations for products or services.
- WEX may from time to time retain the services of third-party technical service providers and consultants. These third parties are only allowed access to the information that we collect to the extent that is required for them to perform the tasks for which they were retained. These third parties are contractually obligated to maintain confidentiality and further must agree to be bound by WEX's privacy policies and applicable confidentiality agreements.
- If a customer uses a Co-Branded or Private Label card, the Co-Brand or Private Label partner is given limited access to transaction data that allows them to determine what products are purchased by the customer and to tailor their services accordingly.
- Certain Co-Brand or Private Label partners may be provided with aggregated customer information to be used for internal and external analytical purposes. WEX may also sell aggregated customer information to third parties for marketing or other purposes. Such aggregated customer information does not identify any particular applicant, individual customer or individual cardholder.
- WEX also shares limited transaction information with merchants who accept our cards. The information that is provided to merchants is limited to transaction exceptions that provide justifications to the merchant when we will not reimburse them for a transaction (e.g. Invalid Fleet or Invalid Vehicle). Such information sharing serves the additional purpose of assisting WEX and the merchant in identifying and correcting processing errors to make our products easier and more convenient to use.
- Subject to applicable legal restrictions, WEX may sell the personally identifiable information that we have collected about certain of our commercial customers to third parties for marketing purposes if we reasonably believe that such third parties can offer products or services that would be beneficial to those customers.
- WEX may disclose or exchange with third parties any information that you have provided to us if we believe in good faith that the law requires us to do so or if it is necessary to protect the rights or property of WEX or our users. Additionally, as we continue to grow as a business, we may acquire or be acquired by another company. In such a transaction, customer information will most likely be one of the transferred assets.
Additional Privacy Issues
- Consumer Privacy Rules:
- WEX recognizes the importance of secure online interaction, and we utilize a number of methods to safeguard your transmissions. Our website is hosted on secure servers with firewall protection. We maintain Secure Site status that is verified by security industry leader VeriSign, Inc. All information gathered on our website is encrypted during transmission with 128-bit SSL RSA-encryption and stored within secure databases protected by multiple firewalls. As effective as current encryption technology is, however, no security system is impenetrable. We cannot guarantee the security of our databases, nor can we guarantee that the information provided via our website will not be intercepted while being transmitted to us over the Internet.
- WEX provides only business services and does not intend to collect or knowingly collect any information from or about children. It is possible that a child may impersonate a company representative and attempt to access or use this site and, in so doing, provide the child's name, address, phone number, fax number, email address and other identifying information. When such information is received and WEX is aware that the individual providing the information is a child, the information is used only to reject the child's application and is immediately deleted by WEX. Such information is never shared with third parties. WEX cannot always determine if a visitor to its website or the sender of an email is a child.
- Our website makes use of a standard feature of browser software called a "cookie" to assign each visitor a unique, random number. A cookie is a file that identifies a computer as a unique user. Cookies may be used to facilitate your use of our website, to maintain site security and to improve our website. Most browsers are initially set up to accept cookies. You may be able to reset your browser to refuse all cookies or to indicate when a cookie is being sent. If cookies are disabled, however, our website (and other websites) may be harder to use. A cookie cannot read data stored on the hard drive of a computer.
Security of Your Data at Esso Business®
In order to access your data through Esso Business®, you will be required to enter a user ID and password. The user ID and password are uniquely associated with your fleet data and restrict unauthorized users from viewing or retrieving data and reports. For a second layer of security, Esso Business employs a sophisticated firewall that protects the web and database servers from hackers and intruders attempting to gain access to your fleet data.
Security of Your Data across the Internet
A third layer of security is data encryption, or Secure Socket Layer (SSL), between the web server and your browser. Encryption helps prevent technically sophisticated individuals who have the desire, tools, and opportunity from intercepting your data as it travels over the Internet.
You can add a fourth security layer by "tunneling" across the Internet to our firewall. Tunneling requires installation of additional software and a fixed IP address, which may be acquired from your local systems administrator or Internet service provider.
Internal Security for User IDs and Passwords
Anyone possessing your account number, user ID and password can access your account, order new cards, and cause financial injury to you. You must keep your User ID and password confidential. Should you believe unauthorized persons have access to either your User ID or password notify your Customer Service Department immediately.
Technical questions and concerns relating to security should be directed to the WEX Inc. Webmaster at firstname.lastname@example.org. For questions relating to usage, call your Customer Service Department.
