How RevenueProtect uses the data
To detect fraud, and to mitigate the effects of potential fraudulent activity, RevenueProtect uses data that is collected when you use Web Drop-in or Components.
This includes the following data:
- Device characteristics: for example the shopper's browser type, screen size, and device type.
- Activity information: for example if credit card details were copied and pasted into the payment form, and the time between payment requests.
The anonymized data may be used across customers to determine if a transaction is legitimate. Adyen does not use this data for anything else than to detect and mitigate fraud, and does not share or use this information for marketing purposes. For more details, see Adyen's privacy statement.
This data is one of the sources to help detect and mitigate fraud. To use RevenueProtect, you have to set up risk, and configure at least one risk profile.
