then Shopify stores your credit card data. It is encrypted through the Payment 
Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI-DSS). Your purchase transaction 
data is stored only as long as is necessary to complete your purchase transaction. 
After that is complete, your purchase transaction information is deleted. All 
direct payment gateways adhere to the standards set by PCI-DSS as managed

payment gateways and other payment transaction processors, have their own 
privacy policies in respect to the information we are required to provide to them 
for your purchase-related transactions. For these providers, we recommend that 
you read their privacy policies so you can understand the manner in which your 
personal information will be handled by these providers. In particular, remember 
that certain providers may be located in or have facilities that are located a 
different jurisdiction than either you or us. So if you elect to proceed with a 
transaction that involves the services of a third-party service provider, then your 
information may become subject to the laws of the jurisdiction(s) in which that 
service provider or its facilities are located. As an example, if you are located in 
Canada and your transaction is processed by a payment gateway located in the 
United States, then your personal information used in completing that 
transaction may be subject to disclosure under United States legislation, including the Patriot Act.
