B.        RocketGate’s Accountability for Data Transfers to Third Parties

RocketGate does not transfer your personal data to any third party controllers.

RocketGate sometimes uses sub-processors (agents) in providing its services to merchants.  Before transferring personal data to any third party, RocketGate first enters into a contract with the third party that provides that such personal data will only be processed for a limited and specified purpose, that the third party will provide the same level of protection as the DPF Principles, and that the third party will notify RocketGate if it makes a determination that it can no longer meet this obligation.  Upon such notice RocketGate will take reasonable and appropriate steps to stop and remediate unauthorized processing and will provide a summary or representative copy of the relevant privacy provisions of its contract with that sub-processor (agent) to the Department of Commerce upon request.

When we transfer DPF-covered information to a third party acting as our agent, we remain liable if the agent processes such personal information inconsistent with the DPF Principles, unless we can establish that we are not responsible for the event(s) causing damage.

C.        How We Use Personal Data

The categories of Personal Data that are Processed/transferred, are those necessary to complete the consumer’s purchase from the online merchant, as follows:

1.     Consumer places order with merchant online store and proceeds to checkout, merchant forwards to RocketGate some or all of the payment information listed above;

2.     Rocketgate (payment gateway) collects the payment information and sends it as SSL-encrypted to the processing bank for authorization;

a.     If Discovery or Amex, processing bank serves as acquiring bank;

b.     If Visa or Mastercard, the processing bank forwards the information;

                                               i.     Visa or Mastercard captures 3D security and forwards to acquiring bank;

3.     Acquiring bank authorizes or declines the transaction;

4.     Response flows to the merchant;

a.     Transaction success – displays transaction ID;

b.     Transaction fail – displays reason for failure.
