Sharing personal information with third parties
Wix may share your Personal Information with third parties (or otherwise allow them access to it) only in the following manners and instances:
8.1. Third Party Services:
Wix has partnered with a number of selected service providers, whose services and solutions complement, facilitate and enhance our own. These include hosting and server co-location services, communications and content delivery networks (CDNs), data and cyber security services, billing and payment processing services, domain name registrars, fraud detection and prevention services, web analytics, e-mail distribution and monitoring services, session recording and remote access services, performance measurement, data optimization and marketing services, content providers, and our legal and financial advisors (collectively, “Third Party Service(s)”).
Such Third Party Services may receive or otherwise have access to our Visitors’ and Users’ Personal Information and/or Users-of-Users’ Personal Information, in its entirety or in part – depending on each of their particular roles and purposes in facilitating and enhancing our Services and business, and may only use it for such purposes.
Wix is accountable for Personal Information that it receives under the Privacy Shield and subsequently transfers to a third party as described in the Privacy Shield Principles. In particular, Wix remains responsible and liable under the Privacy Shield Principles if third-party agents that it engages to process the Personal Information on its behalf do so in a manner inconsistent with the Principles, unless Wix proves that it is not responsible for the event giving rise to the damage.
We may share the information of our visitors, users and their users-of-users with various third parties, including certain service providers, law enforcement officials and application developers.
The information may be shared solely in accordance with this policy.
8.2. Law Enforcement, Legal Requests and Duties:
Where permitted by local data protection laws, Wix may disclose or otherwise allow others access to your Personal Information pursuant to a legal request, such as a subpoena, legal proceedings, search warrant or court order, or in compliance with applicable laws, if we have good faith belief that the law requires us to do so, with or without notice to you.
8.3. Protecting Rights and Safety:
Wix may share your Personal Information with others if we believe in good faith that this will help protect the rights, property or personal safety of Wix, any of our Users, any Users-of-Users, or any member of the general public, with or without notice to you.
8.4. Social Media Features and Framed Pages:
Our Services include certain Social Media features and widgets, single sign on features, such as the “Facebook Connect” or “Google Sign-in”, the “Facebook Like” button, the “Share this” button or other interactive mini-programs (“Social Media Features”).These Social Media Features may collect information such as your IP address or which page you are visiting on our Website, and may set a cookie to enable them to function properly. Social Media Features are either hosted by a third party or hosted directly on our Services. Your interactions with these third parties’ Social Media Features are governed by their policies and not ours.
In addition, our Services may enable you to share your Personal Information with third parties directly, such as via page framing techniques to serve content to or from Third Party Services or other parties, while preserving the look and feel of our Website and Services (“Frames”). Please be aware that if you choose to interact or share any Personal Information via such Frames, you are in fact providing it to these third parties and not to us, and such interactions and sharing too are governed by such third parties’ policies and not ours.
8.5. App Market Developers:
As part of our App Market program, we allow third party developers (“Third Party Developer(s)”) to develop and offer their own applications via the Wix App Market (“Third Party App(s)”), in conjunction with Wix.
8.6. Wix Apps and/or Third Party Apps:
In order to further protect your and your Users-of-Users’ privacy, we contractually prohibit all Third Party Developers from combining Personal Information collected across different User Websites and Services, and from sharing Users-of-Users’ Personal Information other than with other Apps installed on the same User Website or Services, for the purposes of such specific User Website or Services. Wix however may still access and use information collected and stored across different User Websites and Apps, as necessary for providing and improving its Services.
You are solely responsible for notifying your Users-of-Users of the collection, processing and use of their Personal Information and informing them that their Personal Information will be transferred to and processed by Wix on your behalf.
To prevent the collection or sharing of Personal Information, you may either avoid installing Apps to your User Website, revoke the permissions granted to Apps you do install, or simply uninstall them. You should note however that previously-installed Apps may still retain certain information that was collected prior to the revocation, so if you wish such information to be deleted, we suggest that you contact Wix or the Third Party Developer directly and request them to do so.
8.7. Wix Subsidiaries and Affiliated Companies:
Sharing of Personal Information from Wix subsidiaries and affiliated companies in the European Union and Switzerland to Wix’ United States subsidiary, adheres to the EU-US and Swiss-US Privacy Shield frameworks.
To clarify, Wix may share your Personal Information in manners other than as described above, pursuant to your explicit approval, or if we are legally obligated to do so. Moreover, Wix may transfer, share, disclose or otherwise use Non-personal Information in its sole discretion and without the need for further approval.
