Seller Snap Inc. (“Company”, “we” or “Seller Snap”) respects the privacy of the users of its e-commerce services Platform and Site (“User” or “you”) and is committed to protect the User’s information. We believe that you have a right to know our practices regarding the information we may collect and use when you use our Platform (as such term is defined below).
- Your consent (important, please read carefully!)
PLEASE NOTE THAT IN ORDER TO USE THE PLATFORM YOU MUST LINK THE PLATFORM TO THIRD PARTY E-COMMERCE SERVICE PROVIDERS’ APIS (THROUGH OPEN STANDARD FOR AUTHORIZATION (OAUTH)), YOU HEREBY GRANT SELLER SNAP ACCESS TO, AND THE ABILITY TO EXTRACT CERTAIN DATA INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO PERSONAL INFORMATION WHICH ARE HELD BY SUCH THIRD PARTY SERVICE PROVIDERS AND/OR COPY SUCH INFORMATION, AS NECESSARY. PLEASE NOTE – WE WILL EXTRACT THIS DATA SOLELY IN ORDER TO PROVIDE YOU THE SERVICES OFFERED VIA THE PLATFORM. WE DO NOT SHARE OR WILL EVER SHARE PERSONAL INFORMATION WITH ANY THIRD PARTY FOR MARKETING PURPOSES WHATSOEVER.
- Which information may we collect on our Users?
We may collect two types of data and information from our Users:
a) The first type of information is non-identifiable and anonymous information (“Non-personal Information”). We are not aware of the identity of the User from whom we have collected the Non-personal Information. Non-Personal Information is any unconcealed information which does not enable identification of an individual User, and which is available to us when such User installs and/or uses our Platform. Non-personal Information which is being gathered consists of technical information, behavioral information and aggregated information, and may contain, among other things, the activity of the User on the Site and/or Platform, type of operating system, device type, User’s ‘click-stream’ on the Site and/or Platform, keyboard language, screen resolution, time spent on various screens of the Site and/or Platform, etc.
b) The second type of information is individually identifiable information and information collected via Amazon MWS API, including inventory data and sales data related to your Amazon seller account (“Personal Information”). This information may identify an individual or may be of a private and/or sensitive nature.
- Users of the Site and/or Platform automatically provide their IP address mainly for enhancing the User’s experience and for geo-location and security purposes.
- Seller Snap may collect, use and provide access to the User’s advertising identifier in accordance with such identifier provider’s policies.
- When you approve Seller Snap as a developer on Amazon Seller Central, Seller Snap will collect data on your Amazon listings, orders and inventory, by accessing MWS API.
- In addition, Personal Information which is being gathered consists of any personal details provided consciously and voluntarily by the User:
- Personal Information is collected from the details the Users provide in the registration form available on the Platform and/or Site (which enables the Users to open an Account), which includes, inter alia, name, business name, email address and phone number. Additional information may be requested in the future.
- Personal Information is collected from the details the Users and visitors of the Site provide in the Contact Form on the Site which includes, inter alia, name, company/organization name, email address and telephone number. You may optionally provide via the Contact Form any text you wish to insert into the “message box”. Our representative may collect additional Personal Information from you.
- Any Personal Information identified in the User Data which is derived from your existing third party E-commerce Account(s) via such third party service provider’s APIs (through open standard for authorization (OAUTH), including any relevant API authentication tokens. We note that we will extract only information which is relevant in order to provide you the Services offered via the Platform.
- Personal Information may be collected from the details the User may provide us while contacting us via the support page available on the Platform or by sending us an email.
Please note – we will use your Personal Information for the sole purpose of providing you the services offered within the Platform, as further detailed in Section 4 below, and NOT for any other purpose whatsoever.
For the avoidance of doubt, any non-personal Information connected or linked to or associated with any Personal information shall be deemed as Personal Information as long as such connection, linkage or association exists.
