Our Privacy Policy: The Complete Details

This privacy statement covers the web pages and services belonging to FoxyCart.com LLC (hereafter referred to as "us", FoxyCart, Foxy, and Foxy.io) in the United States. It does not cover the privacy policies of our Users (websites, online stores, merchants, etc. using our services). For the purposes of this privacy policy, "You" shall refer to the Foxy customer ("User") and anybody visiting FoxyCart.com LLC properties (including but not limited to www.foxy.io, admin.foxycart.com, forum.foxycart.com, wiki.foxycart.com). "You" shall not refer to a User’s website visitors or customers. For information on the "User’s Customers" please see the "Stores Using Foxy.io" section.

For details about our participation in Privacy Shield and GDPR (the EU's General Data Protection Regulation), please see the corresponding sections below.

A copy of this policy is available at https://foxy.io/privacy-policy.

At Foxy.io, privacy on the Internet means that:

  • We inform you how we use any personally identifiable information that is submitted to us online.
  • We maintain confidentiality and security safeguards for personally identifiable information.
  • You have control over the personally identifiable information you decide to submit to us.
  • If you have elected to receive email promotions from us, you can opt-out from these at any time.

We respect your privacy, and will not share, sell, or otherwise disclose your personal information to disclose this information to affiliates, subsidiaries, agents, or third party content providers for marketing purposes. We retain the right to disclose any information necessary to normal business operation, such as to payment processors.

The websites of our Users (stores using our services) may have different privacy policies and practices from those disclosed here, and we encourage you to become familiar with them as necessary.

This site is operated by FoxyCart.com LLC in the United States. By using this website and our services, you understand and agree that (1) the information collected from this site may be retained indefinitely, and may be stored, accessed, and used in jurisdictions whose privacy laws may be different and less protective than those of your home jurisdiction; and (2) we may use this information for a variety of purposes including direct marketing (unless you opt out of receiving direct marketing from us).

We will only use information provided directly to us (admin.foxycart.com, www.foxy.io, forum.foxycart.com, wiki.foxycart.com, or any other sites directly controlled by Foxy.io). We will not use information provided to our Users. In other words, we will not use or disclose our Users’ customers' information, except as noted below.

Stores Using Foxy.io

Third-party websites using Foxy.io’s services (Users' websites) may have their own privacy policies. Foxy.io will not use any of our Users' customers' personal information that is not provided to Foxy.io directly, except as necessary to process the customer's transaction on behalf of the Foxy User. In other words, if a business named "Ketchup Popsicles" uses Foxy.io’s services, Ketchup Popsicle’s customers:

  • will be processed through Foxy.io’s services and servers as necessary to complete the transaction, which may include:
    • logging the customer IP and other network information,
    • setting cookies,
    • sending the customer information to the payment gateways that are configured by the Foxy User;
    • sending the customer information to 3rd parties and external URLs (ie. anti-fraud services, shipping and fulfillment providers, etc.) as specified by the Foxy User in the Foxy.io store admin;
  • will receive email receipts as configured in the Foxy.io admin by the Foxy User;
  • will have their information stored on Foxy.io’s servers, as necessary to provide transaction history reports to Ketchup Popsicles’ store administrator, and as required by various laws and regulations related to record-keeping for tax purposes;
  • will not be contacted by Foxy.io or any representative of Foxy.io without explicit approval from Ketchup Popsicles (ie. for troubleshooting or bug diagnosis);
  • will not be used for direct marketing by Foxy.io or any representative of Foxy.io;
  • will not have their information shared, sold, or otherwise disclosed to any 3rd parties, unless Foxy.io is required by law to do so;
  • may be used in an anonymous, aggregated format to calculate statistics for Foxy.io’s services (ie. average transaction value, average transactions per store, average transactions per day per store, etc.), which may be used for both internal purposes (analyzing server load, etc.) and external purposes (marketing, etc.).

This information is used to allow logging into various services (the admin, the forum, etc.), and to gauge usage of our websites and services.

Cookies

When you visit Foxy.io, we may place a text file, called a cookie, in the browser directory of your computer’s hard drive. A cookie is a small piece of information that a website can store on your web browser and later retrieve. Cookies do not themselves contain your personal information. Cookies offer you many conveniences. Most importantly, they allow you to login to Foxy.io services, and they allow Users' customers to maintain a cart into which products can be added and paid for. They also allow Foxy.io, and certain third party content providers, to recognize information, and so can determine what content is best suited to your needs. The domain names of the site server transmitting the cookies are Foxy.io and FoxyCart.com.

Most browsers allow you to decline cookies, but if you elect to do so, these pages may not display properly. While cookies will be stored in your hard drive for your next visit with us, you are free to delete cookies after your session, and your browser should contain instructions on how to do this.

How We Use It

The information collected online may be stored indefinitely, or may be retained according to legal or compliance related requirements such as the PCI DSS or GDPR. This information is used for various purposes, including processing your transactions, customer service, product and service development, responding to your inquiries, direct marketing and marketing analysis, and facilitating your use of this website. The information we collect will not be shared with our subsidiaries, agents, third party content providers, affiliates or selected other entities, except as noted above.

Third-Parties With Which We Share Your Information, and Onward Transfer

The types of entities with whom we share your information are:

  • Services used to communicate with you. For example, your email may be imported to a service that we use to send emails, or to our helpdesk. In no case, however, is your email ever used or shared for any other purpose than our own direct communication with you (except as outlined in the "Other Disclosures" section below.
  • Services used to improve our understanding of our systems' usage. For example, we use analytics services to help us identify problems in our service, and to make improvements.
  • Services used to process payments, in order to charge you for our services.

Accountability for Onward Transfers

Except as otherwise noted in this policy, we will only disclose personal information to third-parties under the following conditions:

  • The third-party only uses the provided data for the purpose for which we have provided it.
  • The third-party adheres to the Privacy Shield Principles, or treats personal information with at least that level of protection.
  • The third-party has provided assurances that they will only use the data in a manner consistent with the consent originally provided by the User.
  • The disclosure is reasonably necessary to meet a legal obligation, compliance obligation, regulatory obligation, or as needed to conduct our own business processes as mentioned elsewhere in this document.

If we discover a third-party is not adhering to the level of protection required by this privacy policy, we will work to stop disclosure with the third-party. Liability for any damages caused by any third-parties shall remain with the third-party, unless it is proven that Foxy is responsible for the third-party's violation.

Further, our own legal, contractual, or industry compliance requirements (such as PCI DSS) may require us to maintain historical data such as webserver logs and database backups. In such cases, your or Your Customers' data may persist in backups that are retained for security and compliance purposes, but this data will not be used for marketing purposes.

The sites to which we link, including but not limited to the sites of third party content providers, may have different privacy policies and practices from those disclosed here.
