OWNIT PRIVACY POLICY

Last Updated: September 8, 2022

INTRODUCTION

Your privacy is important to us. This Privacy Policy (“Policy”) applies to services provided by Ownit Commerce Inc. (“we”, “us”, or “Company”) and our website, product pages, mobile or web applications, or other digital products that link to or reference this Policy (collectively, the “Services”) and explains what information we collect from users of our Services (a “user”, “you”, or “your”), including information that may be used to personally identify you (“Personal Information”) and how we use it. We encourage you to read the details below.

We reserve the right to change this Policy at any time. We will notify you of any changes to this Policy by posting a new Policy to this page, and/or by sending notice to the primary email address specified in your account. You are responsible for ensuring we have an up-to-date active and deliverable email address for you, and for periodically reviewing this Policy to check for any changes. Changes to this Policy are effective when they are posted on this page. You acknowledge that your continued use of our Services after we publish or send a notice about our changes to this Policy means that the collection, use and sharing of your Personal Information is subject to the updated Policy

Scope and Applicability

Please note that this Policy does not apply to the extent that we process Personal Information in the role of a processor (or a comparable role such as a “service provider” in certain jurisdictions) on behalf of our customers, including where we offer to our customers various services, through which our customers (and/or their affiliates) connect their product page to connected checkout functionality, sell or offer their own products and services, send electronic communications to other individuals, or otherwise collect, use, share or process Personal Information via our Services.

Each of our customers, not Company, controls what information about you is collected by the Services on behalf of such customer. This content may include contact information (such as your first and last name, email address, and/or phone number), billing address, other types of information that our customer makes available to us via the Shopify app, and, if elected by our customer, information automatically collected through a web beacon placed via the customer's product page or brand page. Use of this content by Company is governed by agreements between Ownit and the customer.

For detailed privacy information applicable to situations where an Ownit customer (and/or a customer affiliate) who uses the Services is the controller, please reach out to the respective customer directly. We are not responsible for the privacy or data security practices of our customers, which may differ from those set forth in this Privacy Policy. If not stated otherwise either in this Privacy Policy or in a separate disclosure, we process such Personal Information in the role of a processor or service provider on behalf of a customer (and/or its affiliates), who is the responsible controller of the applicable Personal Information.
