How BOOST Uses Your Information
Generally, BOOST uses any information obtained from or for the Site to operate and enhance the various features and services found on the Site, or, for other components of our business. We do not share your personally identifiable information to any third parties for their marketing purposes or marketing services unrelated to our business. For example, we use the personal information about you stored in our member database:
· To facilitate and track online transactions;
· To acknowledge receipt of your payments for tax purposes and to help prevent fraudulent transactions;
· To provide you updated Site information, publications or notices about/from BOOST;
· To provide materials about our services or the services of certain affiliated properties;
· To improve Site flow and usability, tailor content to your needs, and make it more responsive to our users' preferences.
We have taken commercial reasonable steps to ensure the security of all data we collect through this service and may use encryption software at certain transaction points. However, in the event that you are subject to fraudulent charges, you agree to notify our office, and your bank and credit card associations in accordance with standard reporting rules and procedures.
Electronic Payments and Financial Information:
We offer multiple convenient payment features to submit payments for our services and products. If you use these payment features, you represent that you are over the age of 18 and understand that you are transacting with a California business, and are taking advantage of services in San Diego, California notwithstanding your current location. By making a purchase or electronic payment, or engaging in any other kind of activity or transaction that uses financial information, on the Site, you consent to BOOST providing your financial information to BOOST’s service providers and to such third parties as BOOST determines is necessary to support and process your activities and transactions, as well as to your credit card issuer for their purposes.
When you initiate an electronic payment, you are requesting an electronic monetary transfer from your financial institution or requesting a credit advance for the amount you submit through the relevant page. By submitting your information on a one time basis or recurring basis, you agree and authorize BOOST to contact your financial institution and request those funds to satisfy any financial obligation you currently owe. A third-party financial institution manages the processing of transactions, which receives credit card numbers and other personal identifying information only to verify the credit card numbers and process transactions. After you submit the information, you acknowledge that you might not be able to cancel the electronic transfer. You authorize BOOST to discuss any issues relating to the submission of the electronic payment with your financial institution.
If your financial institution reports insufficient funds during the electronic payment transaction, you agree to allow BOOST to confirm with your financial institution the accuracy of such report. You agree and acknowledge that BOOST may use this information for credit reporting purposes.
You should note that we may use an automatic clearing house (ACH) network to process some payment transactions. Further, we may utilize “real time” processing or “batching” processing to complete any transaction. If we use a real time process, your payment may be processed and cleared at the same time it is submitted by our office. This means that your account may be debited immediately. If we use the batching process, your payment may be processed at regular intervals, which may not lead to the transaction clearing your account on the same day you submit it. You should check your account regularly to ensure you have sufficient funds for any transaction.
There are certain transaction fees that are incurred with the electronic payment system. You hereby acknowledge and agree to any and all transaction fees associated with submitting the aforementioned payments in the manner reflected above.
You authorize BOOST, its agents or third party vendors to use your personally identifiable information to make inquiries of any kind to validate your identity. We or third parties may use the information to contact financial institutions, verify your credit history, and gather all relevant information about you, so that we may diligently complete our investigation.
