Hey Tim! Do you sell my data?
I don't have any tracking pixels or ads installed on the site, and I have no interest in profiting off of data harvesting. Not now, not ever**.
With that said, I do have a bit of information on every customer that gets automatically saved in the Shopify admin panel. Specifically that information is:
- your name
- your email address
- your billing address(es)
- your shipping address(es)
- your order history (and associated information)
- IP address(es)
These data points are what comprise a customer profile and are only saved in furtherance of shipping you cool stuff. I don't sell this information to anybody because that is dumb and Facebook is evil.
In addition, I've read through a bunch of legal mumbo-jumbo and Shopify claims to not to do anything with your data and if they're required to hand over information to the authorities they'll notify me beforehand. If you're doing crimes, though, that's kind of a "you" problem anyway. :)
There's also a company called MaxMind that provides Shopify with their fraud detection services. They claim to save customer data for 12 months and it seems like maybe they sell your information for advertising purposes, but that doesn't have anything to do with me.
This is all to say that I don't collect your data in any meaningful way and the little bit I do collect is not and I will never sell it, so there's nothing to really opt in or out of. I can delete your customer profile you'd like, but that's about it.
I did this because the generic legal pages Shopify wanted me to put up were an empty gesture at their best and at their worst may have implied that I sold your data. Instead, I figured I'd just do my homework and write this stupid little book report.
If you have any questions, please reach out via the contact form.
(** Note: If this changes, please contact the authorities because I've had my identity compromised and I'm either at the bottom of a lake or left for dead in the Siberian tundra.)
