4. The internet
1. If you communicate with us using the internet, we may occasionally email you about our services and products. When you first give us Personal Data through the Website, we will normally give you the opportunity to say whether you would prefer us not to contact you by email. You can also always send us an email (at the address set out below) at any time if you change your mind.
2. Please remember that communications over the internet, such as emails and webmails (messages sent through a website), are not secure unless they have been encrypted. Your communications may go through a number of countries before they are delivered - this is the nature of the internet. We cannot accept responsibility for any unauthorised access or loss of Personal Data that is beyond our control.
When we provide services, we want to make them easy, useful and reliable. This sometimes involves placing small amounts of information on your computer. These are called 'cookies'
- Letting you navigate between pages efficiently
- Enabling a service to recognise your computer so you don't have to give the same information during one task
- Recognising that you have already given a username and password so you don't need to enter it for every web page requested
- Measuring how many people are using services, so they can be made easier to use and that there is enough capacity to ensure they are fast

Techbank Safety & Security
As soon as a Customer enters into the application process, all information transferred between the Customer and Techbank is encrypted using SSL encryption. Even if this data were to be intercepted over the Internet, it would be useless due to the encryption. When entering a secure area on the Techbank site, the Internet browser will show a picture of a small padlock, normally appearing at the bottom of the screen or just to the right of the address bar. To check whether the page is secure, simply right click on the page and select 'properties' or 'view frame info' from the list.
Also, a secure web page can be identified from the web site address. Where a standard page will begin with 'http://', a secure web page will begin with 'https://', denoting that the page is using a secure server for the transmission of data. All credit card details entered on the Techbank site are encrypted using Techbank's 128bit SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) Software. When a secure connection is established, the downloaded web site sends a digital certificate to the Customer's web browser. When the certificate arrives, it will contain a public key, which functions as a one-way encryption device. The browser then uses this key to scramble any personal data (i.e. Credit Card Information) before sending it over the Internet. Information encrypted with the public key cannot be decrypted without the corresponding private key, held only by Techbank. Therefore, without this exclusively held private key, no personal information can be read.
It is Techbank policy that all personal information including, but not limited to, names, postal address(es), e-mail address(es) and telephone number(s), is kept private and confidential. All personal information provided is stored in a secure location, accessible only by designated Techbank staff. It is used only for the purposes for which the information is provided (such as to reply to requests or to handle Customer queries). Also, if indicated on our site that the Customer would like to receive information about other products and services, such as publications or membership, their personal information will be added to the appropriate Techbank mailing lists. If, at any time, a Customer changes their mind and would like to add or remove their name from any of Techbank's mailing lists or correct their personal information, they need simply to send a secure message to Techbank via the Merchant Management System.
Personal information will not be released to third parties except to further the purpose for which the information is provided. This may include release where required by law or where pertinent to judicial or governmental investigations or proceedings. There are no other circumstances under which we will provide or sell personal information to third parties.
Techbank does not guarantee that Customer applications will be successful, nor is Techbank responsible or liable for any external costs or fees incurred by the Customer as part of their application process. Techbank is also not responsible for Merchant integrations and encourages all Merchants to use the latest integration guidelines available. Techbank is not responsible or liable for any third party technical integrations.
Techbank Setup Timescales
From the point when Techbank has received all the necessary details (i.e. completion of the fields in the 'view/update account details' section of the Merchant Management System) your account will typically take 24-72 hours to be connected and activated. Techbank make no guarantee that connection and activation will not take more than 72 hours and will not accept liability for any damages or costs associated with a delay in setting up an account.
Techbank Response Time
Techbank will endeavour to respond to Customer queries within one working day of submission. Techbank does not accept responsibility or liability for any delay in responding to queries submitted that cannot be dealt with internally by Techbank and that require input or information from third parties.
Techbank Cancellation and Refunds

Once notification of cancellation has been received, Techbank will contact the Customer, either by email or telephone, to notify them of any outstanding amounts requiring payment for settlement. It is the responsibility of all Customers to be aware of their Techbank Subscription renewal date and Techbank does not provide refunds for yearly Service Subscription fees paid in advance.
