Visa values your trust and respects your privacy. This Privacy Centre has been created to help you understand how we use your personal information and how you can manage your privacy choices.
Our Privacy Commitments
Earning people’s trust starts with a commitment to privacy and security. Our view is simple: we use the data entrusted to us to benefit consumers and help businesses and economies grow.
We know you expect convenience, security, and privacy from your payment experiences. To meet your expectations, we make the following privacy commitments to you:
Visa does not sell your personal information. Our Global Privacy Notice describes how we share information, such as when we process payments, provide services to your card issuer, prevent fraud or with your consent.
We only use personal information for defined, appropriate purposes. In addition to operating one of the world’s largest electronic payments networks, we provide authentication, fraud management, loyalty, consulting and data processing services. We also create data products that give our clients insights into their business performance. These products contain data that is de-identified to protect your privacy.
We adhere to the highest legal standards everywhere we operate. We are subject to virtually every privacy and security law, and we understand that we must comply with all of them.
Our commitments are backed by rigorous assessments. Our Global Privacy Program is built on a comprehensive controls framework to support testing and independent auditing. All Visa employees are trained on privacy and security. We also invest heavily in cybersecurity to protect the personal information in our systems and prevent attacks on our networks.
While the Visa Global Privacy Program protects all the information that we collect and use, some Visa products and platforms have their own privacy notices. These notices reflect the business-specific requirements that apply. Please read the privacy notices published on our sites and platforms when you sign-up.
