We may use the personal information to:
Provide you with the information you have requested, facilitate and complete transactions you initiate or authorize, perform analytics and other value-added services using the information collected through any Clover site, comply with federal, state and local laws, including credit reporting laws and card association rules, verify information and combat fraud, send you other information about Clover and its services (including through First Data affiliates and subsidiaries) that we believe you would find interesting, and
perform other lawful business purposes as may arise over time.

Information about Online Tracking
Some browsers incorporate a Do Not Track feature that signals to sites you visit that you do not want to have your online activity tracked. Tracking is not the same as using or collecting information in connection with a single site. For these purposes tracking refers to collecting personally identifiable information as users move across different sites over time.
How browsers communicate the Do Not Track signal is not yet uniform. As a result our sites are not yet set up to interpret or respond to Do Not Track signals communicated by your browser. Our collection and use of your information is described more fully throughout this Online Privacy Statement.
For a description of Do Not Track protocols for browsers and mobile devices, or simply to learn more about the choices available to you, you can visit the All About Do Not Track site: http://allaboutdnt.com
