Cookies, tracking, authentication and targeted advertising
To protect your account from fraud, we or our service providers may use device-related techniques (sometimes called "device fingerprinting") to authenticate that a user attempting to use a Visa Checkout account is actually the holder of the account. When you use device related authentication techniques, such as fingerprint authentication through your device, Visa Checkout does not receive biometric data about you.
In addition to using cookies, these techniques may collect information such as IP address, browser information, or other identifying details provided by your browser or device to identify the device being used to access the Visa Checkout service. We use any Personal Information collected through these device-related techniques strictly for fraud-protection purposes.
Many internet browsers allow users to send a "Do Not Track" signal to websites they visit. Visa Checkout has no mechanism to respond to such a signal.
For Australia, Canada and the United States: We have adopted the use of the AdChoices icon, which may appear on the footer of the Visa Checkout login page and on certain targeted ads that you may see. You may click on this AdChoices icon to learn more information about the collection and use of your information or to opt out of such collection in the future. Please keep in mind that: (i) you will need to opt-out on each browser on each of the computers or devices that you wish to exclude; and (ii) even if you opt out, you may still receive ads that are not customised for you.
In addition, you may be able to take advantage of the tool to opt out of interest-based advertising developed by the Network Advertising Initiative and the Digital Advertising Alliance. Where available, this tool provides a list of parties that may target advertisements based on your online web-browsing activities and the ability to opt out of their use of your information for that purpose.
