Visa is providing this supplemental privacy notice to give California residents the additional information required by the California Consumer Privacy Act (the “CCPA”) and other California laws.
At Visa, we are committed to protecting the privacy and security of all the personal information that is entrusted to us. Visa has a Global Privacy Program to help ensure your information is handled properly, and your personal information is protected. It also reflects the requirements of the privacy laws in all the countries and states where Visa operates. Our Global Privacy Notice describes our privacy and security practices in detail.
In the United States, the payment transaction information that Visa collects when it operates its payment networks is regulated by existing federal financial privacy laws. The CCPA recognizes that such financial information is already protected by federal privacy law, so the CCPA does not apply to this information. Visa’s privacy program reflects the sensitivity of the financial and other information we handle. If you have questions about how we handle your Visa payment card data, please visit Additional Privacy Information and review the section on Card Transaction Data.
Beyond financial information, Visa does collect certain information that is subject to the CCPA. The CCPA applies (1) to our marketing data, which we collect when consumers sign up for marketing from Visa, attend Visa-sponsored events, or interact with our websites and apps, and (2) to information collected from individuals who use Visa (formerly Visa Checkout) and other Visa Solutions secure checkout services. This supplemental privacy notice explains our practices for this CCPA-covered information.
