Scope of Processing of Personal Data

In connection with the fulfillment of its obligations under the Agreement BoostCommerce will Process Personal Data on behalf of the Customer who has the ownership of the Personal Data solely for the purposes set out in the Agreement.

Based on the definitions in Art. 4 GDPR (, we considered the following collected data are personal data that the App interacts with:

Store’s Owner Information
We store this data to communicate with the store’s owner regarding BoostCommerce 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 s long as the store owner continues using the app. When the store owner uninstalls the app, the data is deleted.

Order Hook Information
We need order information to update the availability of related products of the store. The order hook comes to our application from Shopify Webhooks. However, all the personal-related data are deleted as soon as our application receives the hook. Only products-related data are kept for data sync purpose. We do not store any personal data of store’ customers.

Application Logs
We keep application logs for system performance monitoring and security audits. Before storing the log event in our database, the IP Address is translated to Geolocation information including State/Country. As soon as the Geolocation is analyzed, the IP address is removed. We do not store IP addresses in our application log in databases.

The application logs are kept for 3 months.

BoostCommerce 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.
