Customer online data is collected via script on customer computers and is communicated to a server hosted by an organization, such as a card issuer. The customer online data communicated to the server is non-personally identifiable information (non-PII). In turn, the server aggregates the non-PII customer online data from the set of participating merchants. The server associates the received non-PII customer online data with non-PII demographic data. Other non-PII transaction data, such as previous transactions processed at a card issuer, also can be associated with the non-PII customer online data and non-PII demographic data. These associations are, in turn, used to create reports and to provide services to help merchants or other requesting organizations develop online strategies to drive click thru and conversion rates.


A system may receive a primary image containing a first set of facial feature data. The primary image may be sent by a facial recognition device for association with a user account. The system may also retrieve a secondary image from a secondary image source. The secondary image may contain a second set of facial feature data. The secondary image may further depict a user associated with the user account. The system may then compare the first set of facial feature data to the second set of facial feature data to determine whether the primary image depicts the user associated with the user account.

A system is disclosed for allowing a merchant to create offers for distribution via multiple distribution channels. The distribution channels may include social media networks and location based services. The method may include receiving offer parameters for generating the offer, generating offer data based on the offer parameters and merchant transaction data, and determining data subsets of the offer data for distribution through multiple electronic distribution channels. The systems and methods may include associating a transaction account of the account holder with the offer, monitoring a transaction of the transaction account, comparing with a criterion governing the offer, and generating a report for the merchant. The report may include various metrics of the offer, such as return on investment, tracking information on the number of repeat customers and new customers during an offer period, and may occur approximately real-time with the transaction.

A secure mobile financial transaction is provided by receiving, over a communication network, a list of protection mechanisms available for implementation by an external terminal. Security-related data is received from one or more sensors and an attack signature is computed based on the security-related data. An appropriate security policy is selected from multiple security policies stored in a database based on the list of protection mechanisms and the attack signature. A secure communication session is established between the external terminal and an internal network component according to the selected security policy. A data message associated with a mobile financial transaction is communicated over the communication network during the communication session.

The method of processing an analysis cycle to determine interest merchants may include selecting a seed merchant relevant to a topic interest, identifying consumers that have completed a transaction with the seed merchant to generate a list of identified consumers, determining merchants visited by the identified consumers, scoring all the merchants based on network connectivity, activity, and merchant over-index, updating the seed merchant in response to the list of scored merchants relative to a scoring threshold, and scoring the list of identified consumers based on the number of distinct merchants in transaction and over-indexing. Additionally, the method may further comprise producing a list of updated interest merchants and a list of updated identified consumers, where the updated interest merchants and the updated identified consumers are relevant to the topic interest.


The systems and methods described herein may be used to recommend and provide real time information consumers, in accordance with various embodiments. The systems and methods may comprise operations performed by an information kiosk in electrical communication with other components. The operations may include retrieving, transaction history data associated with a user profile, analyzing the transaction history data, determining a consumer relevance value for items based on the transaction history data, monitoring real time information about a consumer, analyzing the real time information, adjusting the consumer relevance value based on and in response to the analyzing the real time information, receiving identifier information from the consumer, identifying a user profile associated with the identifier information, retrieving a merchant offer from an offer database based on the consumer relevance value associated with the user profile, and/or transmitting a merchant offer onto the display comprised in the information kiosk.
