When you purchase something from our store, as part of the buying and selling process, we collect the personal information which you give us, such as your name, billing and shipping addresses, and e-mail address.  


When you browse our store, we also automatically receive your computer’s IP (Internet Protocol) address in order to provide us with information that helps us learn about your browser and operating system so that our store can function properly.

When you provide us with personal information as part of completing a transaction, verifying your credit card, placing an order, arranging for a delivery, etc., you consent to our collecting that information and to using it for those specific reasons only.  


If we ask for your personal information for other reasons, like e-mail marketing, we will either ask you directly for your consent or provide you with an opportunity to decline that consent.  


We never sell or rent your information to anyone.  


Section 3—Disclosure to Others

With regard to payment, GoDaddy stores your credit card data in an encrypted manner through the Payment Card Industry-Data Security Standard (PCI-DSS).  Your purchase transaction data is only stored as long as necessary to complete your purchase transaction, after which it is deleted.  


All direct payment gateways used by GoDaddy adhere to the standards set by PCI-DSS as managed by the PCI Security Standards Council, which is a joint effort of credit card providers like Visa, MasterCard, American Express, and others.  PCI-DSS requirements help ensure the proper and secure handling of credit card information by our GoDaddy.com store and its service providers.
