- Send communications to you about our products, services surveys and promotions.

In the course of offering our services, Shopify uses a number of machine learning algorithms and forms of automated decision-making. Shopify uses automated decision-making and to prevent risk and fraud by merchants and to help merchants avoid fraudulent transactions from their customers.
Most of these algorithms (excluding the personalization features and a subset of customer risk/fraud screening, discussed in more detail below) are not fully automated and include some human intervention. Our personalization algorithms are fully automated, but only affect display features. Shopify uses a small subset of fully automated fraud screening blacklists, which, if we believe a transaction was made using stolen or fraudulent payment information, may stop you from completing a transaction--but only for a period of between a few hours and a few days.
OTHERS WITH WHOM WE MAY SHARE YOUR INFORMATION
We may disclose information to outside companies that help us bring you the products and services we offer. For example, we may work with an outside company to: (a) manage a database of customer information; (b) assist us in distributing emails; (c) assist us with direct marketing and data collection; (d) provide us data storage and analysis; (e) provide fraud prevention; (f) provide customer service by phone; and (g) provide other services designed to assist us in maximizing our business potential. We require that these outside companies agree to keep confidential all information we share with them and to use the information only to perform their obligations in the agreements and in a manner consistent with this Privacy and Usage Policy.
