Configuring Cookie Notice and Privacy Policy Statement

Elevate's site settings allow administrators to include a cookie notice statement as well as a privacy policy statement.

A cookie notice is a statement, that outlines the types and use of cookies on a website. A cookie notice appears when a user visits a website and informs the user that the website is using cookies or other tracking technologies that collect and process personal data, and for what purposes. A privacy policy is a statement that describes how a website collects, uses, and manages the personal data of consumers. This type of policy must often include many explanations, including detailed descriptions of the who, what, where, when, and why of your data collection processes.


When you save the statement, your policy will automatically become active in your Elevate account so be sure to review your statement completely before saving.

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”.
