How We Share Personal Information

Information about our customers is an important part of our business and we are not in the business of selling our customers’ personal information to others. We share customers’ personal information only as described below and with, Inc. and subsidiaries that, Inc. controls that either are subject to this Privacy Notice or follow practices at least as protective as those described in this Privacy Notice.

Transactions involving Third Parties: We make available to you services, software and content provided by third parties for use on or through Smart Commerce Services. For example, shipping and payment processing services offered by us are made available through third parties. You can tell when a third party is involved in your transactions, and we share customers’ personal information related to those transactions with that third party.

Third-Party Service Providers: We employ other companies and individuals to perform functions on our behalf. Examples include using third party vendors to simplify our customer onboarding processes. These third-party service providers have access to personal information needed to perform their functions, but may not use it for other purposes. Further, they must process the personal information in accordance with applicable law.

Business Transfers: As we continue to develop our business, we might sell or buy other businesses or services. In such transactions, customer information generally is one of the transferred business assets but remains subject to the promises made in any pre-existing Privacy Notice (unless, of course, the customer consents otherwise). Also, in the unlikely event that, Inc. or Amazon Smart Commerce Solutions Private Limited or any of its affiliates, or substantially all of their assets are acquired, customer information will of course be one of the transferred assets.

Protection of Us and Others: We release account and other personal information when we believe release is appropriate to comply with the law; enforce or apply our terms and other agreements; or protect the rights, property, or safety of Smart Commerce, our users, or others. This includes exchanging information with other companies and organizations for fraud prevention and detection and credit risk reduction.

At Your Option: Other than as set out above, you will receive notice when personal information about you might be shared with third parties, and you will have an opportunity to choose not to share the information.
