Are you sharing my info, or are you selling it? and What if I don't want my transaction shared?

This is in response to the notice I saw today that you are "sharing" level 3 data with certain credit card providers.

I would also like to know if any personally identifiable information is "shared" in terms of tying a purchase to me as an individual or company


Hi there ittoyou,

We appreciate you for sharing your concern in the community.

If you enabled level 3 data processing, certain transactions will be scrutinized if there's a suspicion of fraud or risky activity. During the review, varied sources and information are used to verify a transaction.

Here's a list of information that QuickBooks will share:

  • Freight Amount
  • Duty Amount
  • Discount Amount
  • Product Code
  • Product Description
For the complete list refer to this article:

If you don't want to share your information, we will still try to process the transaction with Level 2 data for you.

If have other questions, please let me know, and I’d be glad to clear it up for you.

People come to QuickBooks Learn & Support for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

  1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
  2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
  3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
  4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
  5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
