How we protect your data

We go to great lengths to protect your data through various security measures including strong passwords, encryption and security software.

Plugin: Smush

Note: Smush does not interact with end users on your website. The only input option Smush has is to a newsletter subscription for site admins only. If you would like to notify your users of this in your privacy policy, you can use the information below.

Smush sends images to the WPMU DEV servers to optimize them for web use. This includes the transfer of EXIF data. The EXIF data will either be stripped or returned as it is. It is not stored on the WPMU DEV servers.

Smush uses a third-party email service (Drip) to send informational emails to the site administrator. The administrator’s email address is sent to Drip and a cookie is set by the service. Only administrator information is collected by Drip.

What personal data does Sales Accelerator store in the database?

Our plugin requires WooCommerce to work, so all personal information stored in the database comes from WooCommerce. We comply with the create, change and delete instructions that WooCommerce executes, so by deleting data from WooCommerce, we also delete data from our tables, too. Nevertheless, if you wish to delete data from our tables and not WooCommerce, you have two options:

  1. Uninstall our plugin or;
  2. Navigate to the Settings menu and, from the Reporting tab, use the option to request deletion of ALL data we store.
