Privacy Policy on Payments

This cartridge implements a custom object for temporary storage of order data needed for Extend Protection Plan contract generation. This custom object (ExtendContractsQueue) was implemented based on a queue pattern that is consumed by a job configured to execute every 5 minutes. This data is not exposed publicly and used only in a server-to-server communication setup.

Extend does not handle payments from the end-user. The merchant is responsible for charging the end-user for the Extend Protection Plans purchased, using the existing tenders that are currently supported on the specific environment. The merchant is responsible for generating Extend Protection Plan contracts only after charging the end-user for the warranty plans purchased.
