This Privacy Notice describes how the Weebly eCommerce by Square platform (referred to herein as “Weebly”) uses and discloses the information we collect from you as a customer of the Weebly platform (collectively, “Services”). Weebly is a product and service owned by Block, Inc., and references to “us,” “we” or “our” in this Privacy Notice refer to Block, Inc. and its affiliates.
This Privacy Notice applies to the information collected in connection with your use of Weebly, but does not apply to information of yours that we may collect through our other services or products, or if you are both a Square Seller and Weebly customer. If you use Weebly for eCommerce and are a Square Seller (for example, through your use of Square Online Store), the privacy notice that applies to you can be found here .
This Privacy Notice applies to information collected in connection with your access to and use of our Services. Please read this Privacy Notice carefully. By continuing to interact with our Services, you are consenting to the practices described in this Privacy Notice.

We call this information Weebly Account Data.
Specifically, we collect (and/or have collected during at least the 12-month period preceding the effective date of this Privacy Notice) the following categories of information:
We also obtain information about your customers on your behalf when they transact with you. We call this information Your Customers’ Data. We collect Your Customers’ Data when they transact with you through your use of Weebly. Your Customers’ Data may include:

If we send you marketing emails, each email will have instructions on how you can “opt out” of getting future marketing from us.
To learn about what choices you have about interest-based advertising and cross-device tracking, please see below.
We may share the personal information described in the “Information We Collect About You” section with the following categories of service providers and third parties:
When you interact with our online services, or open emails we send you, we obtain certain information using automated technologies, such as cookies, web server logs, web beacons, and other technologies. A “cookie” is a text file that websites send to a visitor’s computer or other internet-connected device to uniquely identify the visitor’s browser or to store information or settings in the browser. A “web beacon,” also known as an internet tag, pixel tag, or clear GIF, is a tiny graphic image that may be used in our websites or emails.
We use these automated technologies to collect your device information, internet activity information, and inferences as described above. These technologies help us to:
● Remember your information so you do not have to re-enter it;
● Track and understand how you use and interact with our online services and emails;
● Tailor our online services to your preferences;
● Measure how useful and effective our services and communications are to you; and
● Otherwise manage and enhance our products and services.
We set some of these automated technologies ourselves, but others are set by third parties who deliver services on our behalf. For example, we may use other companies’ web analytics services (described in the “Third-Party Analytics Services” section), which use automated technologies to help us evaluate how customers use our websites. Some of these technologies may also be set by third parties that help us advertise our products and services to you as informed by your interests, based on information collected from your activity on the web, including but not limited to, browsing or purchasing products on or through our websites or on third party websites or your activity on mobile sites and applications. This advertising approach is called interest-based advertising or “targeted advertising.” You thus may see certain ads on other websites because we use these third-party services to show you Weebly ads that may be tailored to your individual interests.
Your browser can alert you when cookies are placed on your device, and you can stop or disable them via your browser settings. More information on how to manage these settings on common browsers and devices are below.
Please note, however, that without cookies all of the features of our online services may not work properly. If you use a mobile device, you can manage how your device and browser share certain device data by changing the privacy and security settings on your mobile device. You can learn more about cookies and how to manage your preferences by visiting www.allaboutcookies.org
Please also see the “Your Choices” section for other ways to opt-out of interest-based or targeted advertising.
Certain web browsers allow you to instruct your browser to respond to Do Not Track (“DNT”) signals to websites you visit, informing those sites that you do not want your online activities to be tracked. At this time, our websites are not designed to respond to DNT signals or similar mechanisms from browsers.
Our analytics partners help us with our online services, such as Google Analytics, BugSnag, and Crashlytics. The analytics providers that administer these services use technologies such as cookies, web beacons, and web server logs to help us analyze how you use our online services. We may disclose your site-use information (including IP address) to these analytics providers, and other service providers who use the information to help us figure out how you and others use our online services.
We keep your information as long as is necessary for the purposes identified in this Privacy Notice, including to provide you the Services, to comply with applicable law and legal obligations, to defend our legal rights, property, and users. Even after you deactivate your account, we may retain copies of information about you and any transactions or Services in which you may have participated for a period of time consistent with certain criteria, such as applicable law, applicable statute of limitations or as we believe is reasonably necessary to comply with applicable law, regulation, legal process, or governmental request, to detect or prevent fraud, to collect fees owed, to resolve disputes, to address problems with our Services, to assist with investigations, to enforce our General Terms or other applicable agreements or policies, or to take any other actions consistent with applicable law.
Depending on the jurisdiction in which you reside, you may be entitled under applicable law to request:
You can access, change, or correct information that you have provided by logging into your Weebly account at any time. You may also submit an access, deletion, or correction request by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling us at 1.844.213.7377. Once we receive your request, we will verify it by requesting that you confirm certain personal information associated with your account.

Some of the advertising platforms that we use to collect information from or about you in order to provide more relevant advertising to you on websites participate in the DAA Self-Regulatory Program for Online Behavioral Advertising. This program offers a centralized location where users can make choices about the use of their information for online behavioral advertising.

If you opt out of online behavioral advertising using this method, this opt-out will only apply to the specific browser or device from which you opt out.
Some of the advertisers, advertising technology companies, and service providers that perform advertising-related services for us may be members of the Network Advertising Initiative (NAI), a cooperative of online marketing companies that offers a centralized tool for opting out of interest-based advertising delivered to each of its member companies. If you would like to opt out of the NAI’s members’ use of information from or about you on websites, please visit the NAI’s opt-out of interest-based advertising page . If you opt out of interest-based advertising using this method, this opt-out will only apply to the specific browser or device from which you opt out.
Additional Choices for Third-Party Online Behavioral or Interest-Based Advertising Services Within Mobile Applications
Some of the advertising platforms that we use to collect information from or about you in order to provide our advertising to you within mobile applications participate in the DAA Self-Regulatory Program for Online Behavioral Advertising. This program offers a mobile application called the “AppChoices,” which provides a centralized location where you can make choices about the use of your information for online behavioral advertising within the mobile environment. The AppChoices application can be downloaded from your mobile device at www.aboutads.info/appchoices or from your device’s app store. If you opt out of online behavioral advertising using this method, this opt-out will only apply to the specific browser or device from which you opt out.
On your mobile device, you may also go to your device settings and select “Limit Ad Tracking” (for iOS devices), or “Opt out of Interest-Based Ads” (for Android devices), which will allow you to limit our use of information collected from or about your mobile device (such as precise location data) for the purposes of serving online behavioral advertising to you.

We take reasonable measures, including administrative, technical, and physical safeguards, to protect your information from loss, theft, and misuse, and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, and destruction.
