Privacy Policy Guidelines for E-Commerce

The rapid growth of electronic commerce and new Internet business models continues to pose risk management challenges for Acquirers/Processors. Visa and MasterCard have mandated that all merchants who process and/or accept credit card orders using a shopping cart, web hosting company or other internet means (often referred to as “ecommerce transactions”), must adhere to the following regulations to remain compliant.

Websites must display all of the information listed below:

  • A complete description of the goods and/or services offered.
  • Business and contact information, including the business address and telephone number. The address displayed must match the physical address of the business.
  • Alternate contact information (including email address and fax number).
  • The currency in which the transaction will be conducted.
  • Customer service telephone number.
  • If tangible goods are provided, delivery standards, including delivery method (i.e., FedEx, UPS, USPS, etc.) and time standards i.e., product will arrive within three business days). Both domestic and foreign import/export shipping time standards must be included (if applicable).
  • The business’s country of origin (i.e., United States).
  • Terms and conditions, as well as export and/or legal restrictions (including for international transactions, if applicable).
  • A clear and concise Privacy Policy. This must also disclose what information is collected, how it is tracked and with whom it is shared.
  • The business’s refund/return Policy must be described in full detail. This can be as simple as “No refunds. All sales are final”.
  • The Website's security method for the transmission of payment data (i.e., SSL Secured 128 bit).
  • Customers must be able to review all information prior to completing the sale and have the option to cancel the sale.

So you are implementing a new integration. You want to make sure the IP address restrictions for the new integration webservices do not conflict with the Elevate webservices you have in place.

You will need the IPs you use for your Elevate/AMS webservices and any other IPs required for Elevate to function correctly.

Here are the IP addresses your organization will need in order to make any integration transitions:
