Please select from the following general operations privacy policy listed below:

Non-Disclosure to Third Parties

SHAZAM will not disclose or divulge non-public personal information about any consumer to non-affiliated third parties in connection with any financial product or service provided by SHAZAM to network participants that provide financial products and services to consumers and their customers.  For purposes of this paragraph, the definitions of "non-public personal information," "non-affiliated third parties," "consumers," "customers," and "financial products or services" are as set forth in applicable federal and/or state laws and/or regulations including Section 504 of the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act, Pub. L. 106-102, and any amendments thereto.

Disclosure Necessary to Transactions

As a service provider, SHAZAM is authorized to disclose non-public personal information about a consumer performing EFT transactions to other parties that are necessarily involved with the transaction. The exchange of such information is necessary and appropriate in connection with the financial product or service being supported by SHAZAM. Pursuant to certain federal regulatory exceptions, there is no prohibition on a disclosure of such information by a financial institution, or by SHAZAM to another involved party to the EFT transaction, as necessary to perform transaction processing on behalf of the consumer. There is also no prohibition on disclosure of such consumer information that is appropriate or necessary in connection with the authorization, settlement, processing, or reconciliation of amounts that may be charged, debited, or otherwise paid using a transaction card.

SHAZAM may disclose such non-public personal information under the following circumstances:

  • To each participant or agent of a participant that is a necessary party to the completion of the transaction.

  • To any other person or entity that is a party to the transaction or is necessary to the completion of the transaction.

  • In response to a written request of any regulatory authority with jurisdiction over financial institutions, processors, or SHAZAM.

  • To any third-party auditor of the SHAZAM network if a compelling need to examine such transactions is demonstrated by the auditor.

  • As required by law or a court with apparent jurisdiction. 
Disclosure of Business Statistics

SHAZAM will not divulge to any third party statistics on the business operations of any SHAZAM network participant without written consent of the participant. SHAZAM may compile and disclose, without limitation, total terminal statistics that are generic to the network and that do not contain specific information identifying particular participants or information concerning the operations of any participant.
