  • Publication number: 20190244204
    Abstract: A general-purpose payment card product is linked to a designated reimbursement account. A payment card authorization request is obtained, with a full amount and a reimbursement eligible amount included therein, based on a transaction with the payment card product at a merchant. In one aspect, a payment card authorization response is returned to the merchant from an issuer of the payment card product, based on the full amount. A funding request is initiated, for the reimbursement eligible amount, from the designated reimbursement account. The payment card product and the designated reimbursement account are managed separately. In an alternative, the authorization request is intercepted by an operator of a payment network. The operator initiates a first operator authorization request for the reimbursement eligible amount, and a second operator authorization request for the full amount less the portion of the reimbursement eligible amount, and returns a coordinated response to the merchant.

  • Patent number: 9898755
    Abstract: The present invention provides improved techniques that can be used to verify illegitimate non-human users that are accessing content. For example, a method of verifying a non-human user of a computerized device may comprise receiving information identifying a potential non-human user of a computerized device, altering a browser page to be used by the potential non-human user, and verifying whether or not the potential non-human user is an actual non-human user based on a behavior of the potential non-human user with the altered browser page.

  • Publication number: 20150379266
    Abstract: Improved techniques can be used to identify illegitimate non-human user software that is accessing content. For example, a method of identifying non-human user software of computerized devices may comprise receiving information relating to attributes relevant to the indication of non-human user software activity from a plurality of computerized devices, wherein at least a portion of the computerized devices are known to be infected with at least one non-human user software, and at least a portion of the computerized devices are known not to be infected with a non-human user software, selection as factors a plurality of the attributes based on a correlation of the attribute with the presence of non-human user software activity, computing a score for each factor indicating a likelihood of non-human user software infection for that factor, computing a combined score based on the scores of the individual factors, the combined score indicating a combined likelihood of non-human user software infection.

  • Publication number: 20150278853
    Abstract: The present invention provides improved techniques that can be used to identify hidden content and/or advertisements on a digital display page and to tell the illegitimate pieces of hidden content apart from legitimate ones, which provide reduced levels of false results. For example, a technique involves performing a plurality of analyses on a digital display page to determine whether the digital display page includes content is hidden, wherein each analysis may determine a different result based on whether content in the digital display page is delivered but hidden, comparing the resulting determinations of the analyses, when the analyses all determine that the content is not hidden, classifying the digital display page as not including hidden content, and when at least one analysis determines that the content is not hidden and at least one analysis determines that the content is hidden, classifying the digital display page as including hidden content.

  • Patent number: 8321780
    Abstract: A cell navigation system is described that allows easy navigation to cells that are likely to be important to a spreadsheet user. The cell navigation system tracks each cell that a user visits and determines the importance of the cell to the user. The system adds important cells to a navigation list. The cell navigation system presents the list to the user as a tool for navigating to the important cells through a user interface. Thus, the cell navigation system provides the user with a quick and easy way of navigating through a potentially large spreadsheet or workbook of spreadsheets to get to those cells that are most important to the user.
