Square Profile FAQs

At Square, we are committed to the protection of individuals’ data and privacy rights, and we strive to help you comply with your own privacy obligations – including the General Data Protection Regulation (‘GDPR’).

You can read Square’s Buyer Privacy Notice to learn more.

What is the Square Profile?

The Square Profile is an online portal that’ll allow you to more easily view, export and delete personal information you’ve shared with Square starting on 28 June 2023. This tool will allow you to exercise your choices regarding your data.

Why did we build the Square Profile?

At Square, your privacy is important to us and we work hard to protect your personal information.

We have created the Square Profile to give you more control over the personal information we collect when you transact with sellers who use Square to process your card payments (your sellers). For example, you can use the Square Profile to do things like opt out of receiving digital receipts or promotional communications from your sellers. You can also add, download or delete your contact information.

To learn more about the choices available to you, please see the Your Choices section of Square’s Privacy Notice.

What personal information am I able to manage in Square Profile?

You’re able to add and manage the following information from your Square Profile.

  • Contact information: manage your account details and contact information, such as phone numbers and email addresses.
  • Payment information: manage your payment preferences and saved credit or debit card details.
  • Addresses: manage physical addresses you’ve saved for a faster checkout.
  • Gift Cards: manage saved gift cards for Square merchants.
  • Notifications and receipts (US Sellers only): manage communications and receipts from Square merchants.

Note on shopping with US Sellers

When you transact with Sellers in the United States, we offer some features to you, which we refer to as our buyer features. These include:

  • The ability to choose to automatically receive digital receipts from all sellers you visit;
  • Inclusion of your masked contact information in the directory of your sellers; and
  • Email marketing and other communications from your sellers.

For example, after you complete a transaction at a US Square seller, we offer you the option of receiving a digital receipt. If you choose this option, you can then choose to enter your contact information, which can then be used to send you a digital receipt for your purchase and any other future purchases you make with one of your sellers. When you select the option of receiving an emailed digital receipt and agree to also receive marketing from your sellers, they can use Square to send you communications, including promotional messages.

Through Square Profile, you’re able to manage any personal information you’ve provided when using the buyer features, including the ability to add, download or delete contact information you provide when you sign up to receive digital receipts and email marketing from your sellers.
