California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA)


Last updated on Jan 21th, 2022

The California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) is a California law that was passed in June 2018. The CCPA gives California residents more control over their personal information..

What is the CCPA?

The California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018 (CCPA) gives consumers more control over the personal information that businesses collect about them and the CCPA regulations provide guidance on how to implement the law. This landmark law secures new privacy rights for California consumers, including:

  • The right to know about the personal information a business collects about them and how it is used and shared;
  • The right to delete personal information collected from them (with some exceptions);
  • The right to opt-out of the sale of their personal information; and
  • The right to non-discrimination for exercising their CCPA rights.

What businesses does the CCPA apply to?

The CCPA applies to for-profit businesses that do business in California and meet any of the following:

  • Have a gross annual revenue of over $25 million;
  • Buy, receive, or sell the personal information of 50,000 or more California residents, households, or devices; or
  • Derive 50% or more of their annual revenue from selling California residents’ personal information.

Currently, Boost Commerce does not meet any of the above criteria.

What are the personal data we collect?

Store’s Owner Information

We store this data to communicate with the store’s owner regarding Boost Commerce apps and services. Our app minimizes the personal data of store’s owner as we only store Email Address (encrypted in the database) and State/Country of the owner.

This information is kept as long as the store owner continues using the app. When the store owner uninstalls the app, the data is deleted.

We also have cookies set by Google Analytics, MixPanel and Hotjar in our app’s admin pages. These cookies help us to adjust and improve experiences with our app.

Order Hook Information

We do not store any personal information from order hooks in our application or other databases.

UUID of Frontend API

We place an anonymous unique identifier on the device or computer of individuals that accesses the storefront. This identifier helps us to analyze how our app influences customer experiences.

This UUID is not personal information as it cannot be reversed to identify any personal information if this data is breached or accessed by other third parties.

Application Logs

We keep application logs for system performance monitoring and security audits. The application logs are kept permanently for security reasons.

What about third parties? How do we control the information shared with them?

We do not and will never share, disclose, sell, rent, or otherwise provide personal information to other third parties or companies (other than to specific Shopify merchants you are interacting with, or to third-party apps or service providers being used by the merchants you are interacting with) for the marketing of their own products or services.

Still, we may also share your Personal Information to comply with applicable laws and regulations, to respond to a subpoena, search warrant or other lawful requests for information we receive, or to otherwise protect our rights.

Final Words
