Change to Use Terms and Privacy Policy – July 2020

Note: This has been superseded by the December 2020 update – please read more at the Change to Use Terms and Privacy Policy – December 2020.

What Has Changed?

↑ Back to top

As of August 1, 2020, your agreement (the WooCommerce Use Terms) will no longer be with Bubblestorm Management (Pty) Ltd., and the company responsible for your personal information (as mentioned in our Privacy Policy) will change.

If you reside in Australia, Canada, Japan, Mexico, New Zealand, Russia, and any countries located in the European continent, your agreement will be with Aut O’Mattic A8C Ireland Ltd., which will be the primary controller of your personal information. If you reside anywhere else, it’s Automattic Inc. that you will contract with and that will be responsible for your personal information.

How Does This Affect Me as a User?

↑ Back to top

The agreement, our Privacy Policy, and our services haven’t changed — this is purely corporate housekeeping to make things simpler (for us).

Bubblestorm is the original parent company of WooCommerce – we joined the Automattic family a few years ago, and these changes help formalize that. You may already be familiar with these entities if you have a WordPress.com account or have read through our Privacy Policy.

What Do I Need to Do?

Nothing – it’s business as usual, and your store and WooCommerce.com account remain unaffected.
