If you are a consumer shopping at a business that uses Square and you create a customized account, create a Square profile account, and/or you have signed up to use Square Pay, this Privacy Notice applies to you. This privacy notice explains what data we collect about you, what we do with it, when and why we share it with others, how long we keep it, how we secure it, what cookies are and what they (and similar technologies) do, what data is collected about you by third party service providers, and what choices you have to control your data.
This Privacy Notice describes how Block, Inc. and our affiliates (collectively, “Square,” “we,” and “us”) collect, use, disclose, transfer, store, retain or otherwise process your information when you choose to (i) create a customized account with a Square Seller; (ii) choose to opt in to Square Pay; or (iii) visit this Square profile portal for buyers (“Square profile”) (items (i), (ii) and (iii) are collectively “Buyer Features”).

When this Privacy Notice Applies:
This Privacy Notice applies solely to the processing of information that we obtain from you when you:
- Create an account with a Square seller (Customer Account);
- Interact with Square by using our Square profile portal (Square Profile); or
- Use Square Pay (i.e., when you choose to save your contact and payment information with Square to make the checkout process with Your Sellers easier, if the Seller uses Square Pay).
When this Privacy Notice does NOT apply:
This Privacy Notice does not apply when Square is processing your information as a service provider to Your Sellers (instead, other privacy notice applies in those circumstances). When you shop at Your Sellers, we collect certain information on Your Sellers’ behalf as their payment processor. For example, when you make a purchase or interact with a Seller, we may collect:
- Your signature and payment card information, such as card number, expiration date, and security code;
- Transaction details, such as when and where the transactions occur, the names of the transacting parties, a description of the transactions, the payment or transfer amounts, and the devices and payment methods used to complete the transactions;
- Any gift cards you purchase or receive; and
- Billing and shipping address information
We obtain this information on Your Sellers’ behalf to provide them with our payment processing services. Your Sellers operate independently from us, and your agreement with the relevant Seller governs how the Seller uses and shares this information, including with Square. Each Seller’s privacy practices, including details on the information they may collect about you, are subject to the privacy statements of these Sellers, which we strongly suggest you review. If you have questions about a Seller’s privacy practices, please direct those questions to the Seller.

COOKIES, OTHER SIMILAR AUTOMATED TECHNOLOGIES, AND ADVERTISING
Digital cookies and similar technologies help us make our services better to use by doing things like analyzing how you use our services so we can make them more useful to you, giving you a more personalized experience, and making ads to you work better.
When you interact with our Square profile portal, or open emails we send you when you use our Buyer Features or Square Pay, we obtain certain information using automated technologies, such as cookies, web server logs, web beacons, and other technologies. A “cookie” is a text file that websites send to a visitor’s computer or other internet-connected device to uniquely identify the visitor’s browser or to store information or settings in the browser. A “web beacon,” also known as an internet tag, pixel tag or clear GIF, is a tiny graphic image that may be used in our Square profile portal or emails.
We use these automated technologies to collect your device information, internet activity information, and inferences as described above. These technologies help us to:
- Remember your information so you do not have to re-enter it;
- Track and understand how you use and interact with our Square profile portal;
- Tailor our online services to your preferences;
- Measure how useful and effective our services and communications are to you; and
- Otherwise manage and enhance our products and services.
We set some of these automated technologies ourselves, but others are set by third parties who deliver services on our behalf. For example, we may use other companies’ web analytics services (described in the “Third-Party Analytics Services” section), which use automated technologies to help us evaluate how customers use our websites. Some of these technologies may also be set by third parties that help us advertise our products and services to you as informed by your interests, based on information collected from your activity on the web, including but not limited to, browsing or purchasing products on or through our websites or on third party websites or your activity on mobile sites and applications. This advertising approach is called interest-based advertising or “targeted advertising.”
Your browser can alert you when cookies are placed on your device, and how you can stop or disable them via your browser settings. More information on how to manage these settings on common browsers and devices are below.

If you use a mobile device, you can manage how your device and browser share certain device data by adjusting the privacy and security settings on your mobile device. You also can learn more about cookies and how to manage your preferences by visiting http://www.allaboutcookies.org.

We use other companies to help us analyze our site, track metrics, and advertise to you. These companies generally promised us under contract to keep data private but have their own privacy policies that you should be aware of.
Our analytics partners help us with our Square profile portal or Square Pay, such as Google Analytics, BugSnag, and Crashlytics. The analytics providers that administer these services use technologies such as cookies, web beacons, and web server logs to help us analyze your use of the portal. We may disclose your site-use information (including IP address) to these analytics providers, and other service providers to help us figure out how you and others use our Square profile portal.

At this time, our Square profile portal is not designed to respond to DNT signals or similar mechanisms from browsers.

We keep your information as long as is necessary for the purposes identified in this Privacy Notice, including to provide you our services, to comply with applicable law and legal obligations, to defend our legal rights, property and users. We may keep copies of information about you and any transactions or services in which you may have participated for a period of time that is consistent with certain criteria, such as applicable law, applicable statute of limitations, or as we believe is reasonably necessary to comply with applicable law, regulation, legal process, or governmental request, enable Your Sellers to continue to use Square services to run their business, to detect or prevent fraud, to collect fees owed, to resolve disputes, to address problems with our services, to assist with investigations, to enforce, as applicable, our Square Pay Terms of Service or other applicable agreements or policies, or to take any other actions consistent with applicable law.

In addition, you may unsubscribe from or manage your preferences regarding the digital receipts or marketing emails we send on behalf of U.S.-based Sellers with whom you have transacted by following the instructions in those messages. Opting out of receiving communications may impact your use of the Buyer Features. If you decide to opt out of promotional communications, we may still send you transactional communications, such as digital receipts that you request.
Sellers’ Loyalty programs and promotional text message programs that you have signed up for on a Seller-by-Seller basis are not included in Square’s Buyer Features. If you have signed up for a Seller’s Loyalty or text marketing program, and you would like to change your preferences, text STOP to stop receiving Loyalty and promotional text messages from that Seller or contact the Seller directly.
You may access, delete, or amend your Square Pay Information, by accessing the portal at [https//profile.squareup.com/login], but we reserve the right to ask for additional information or documentation to verify your identity in connection with such requests. You can also use the Square Profile to remove (and unlink) your Square Pay Information or via our dedicated DSAR request portal https://profile.squareup.com/privacyrequests.
You can modify your Square Pay Information the next time you check out on a merchant site that uses Square Pay. After successfully verifying your identity by entering the verification code, you can modify your payment card information by selecting “Use a different card” on the checkout page.

If you have any issues removing or modifying your Square Pay Information, please contact our Customer Success team.
