Below is a summary of our practices when it comes to your data collected when you use Shoffr Services which includes our account portal, store concierge applications, end consumer applications and bots, and our developer products and services.
Please note that some Shoffr customers may have special agreements with us that specify the collection, use, and sharing of their data. If those special agreements and this policy conflict, those special agreements will apply.
For purposes of this policy, the words “our,” “us,” “we,” and “Shoffr" refer to Affle International Pte. Ltd. and our affiliates (which includes any person or entity that controls us, is controlled by us, or is under common control with us, such as our subsidiary, parent company, or our employees).
Before you use any of Shoffr’s Services, please carefully review this Policy. By using any part of Shoffr’s Services, you consent to the collection, use, disclosure and sharing of your information as further outlined below in this Policy.
What is Shoffr? Shoffr is a cloud based omni-channel retail platform. Our customers are generally retail brands and their affiliates. Our customers generally use Shoffr’s Services, which include APIs and SDKs, to build omni-channel retail capabilities into their applications. Our customers then often have their own customers or users of the applications they build using Shoffr’s Services. To avoid confusion, we’ll call the individuals that use our customers’ applications the “end users.”
Categories of Customer Data. There are three general categories of customer data that we collect or generate from our customers’ use of our Services. We’ll call these “Customer Content,” “Customer Account Data,” and “Customer Usage Data.”
- Customer Content. Customer Content consists of data that are sent through integration with Shoffr’s Services, like the body of a message, your products and services catalogs, your price books, or your in-store inventory.
Customer Account Data. Customer Account Data is all the data that relates to the relationship between Shoffr and its customers, like our customers’ names, contact information, and billing information and records.
Customer Usage Data. Includes operational data like API requests, orders and reservations, call or messaging logs, or usage information. Customer Usage Data also includes your end users’ name, phone number, email addresses, shipping addresses, and social media profiles

- Customer Usage Data. Includes operational data like API requests, orders and reservations, call or messaging logs, or usage information. Customer Usage Data also includes your end users’ name, phone number, email addresses, shipping addresses, and social media profiles as requested by your application. If you integrate your payment processors with Shoffr’s Services, we will also store the secure payment profile of your end users as provided by your payment processors.
What data we collect, how we collect it and why
Customer Account Data you share with us directly. When you sign up for an account with Shoffr you’ll be asked to give us your name, email address, telephone number, your company name, and your billing address. You’ll also be asked to create a password. We collect this Customer Account Data so that we know who you are, we can communicate with you about your account, and we can recognize you when you communicate with us through the account portal or otherwise.
Also, we gather information about you when you interact with our customer support team, sales team or account management team. For example, when you contact our customer support team, you will be asked to give your account data and tell us the question you have or any problem you’re experiencing. We gather this information so that we can help you with your question or problem. When you communicate with our sales team or account management team, we’ll gather data about you, such as your use case and your business requirements, so that these teams are better equipped to assist you. We may also use this data so that we can improve our Services and train our team members.
Customer Account Data we generate and collect automatically when you create an account. When you sign up for an account with Shoffr, we’ll assign you an Account SID, which acts as a username, and an Auth Token, which acts as a password. You will need to use these credentials in connection with making requests to our APIs. We keep a record of these credentials, so that when your application makes requests to our API using these credentials, we know that it is you making the requests.
Customer Usage Data we collect from you from your use of our Services, like our APIs. When you use our Services, we collect Customer Usage Data. This may include data like what commands your application has communicated to Shoffr, your IP addresses, how many times you used a Shoffr Service, and when the Service was used by you or your end users.
We collect Customer Usage Data so that you can view it in the account portal and can manage your use of our Services. We also collect it so that we can properly bill you for your use of our Services, appropriately manage customer traffic, analyze and improve our Services, and identify and solve problems that arise.
Customer Account Data we collect from other sources. From time to time, we gather publicly-available information about companies that are our customers, such as where they are located, their website URL, their industry, and their size. Sometimes this type of Customer Account Data is obtained through third-party service providers that specialize in pulling together publicly-available information about companies.
What we use your data for
Generally, we use all the data that you provide to us or that we collect from you to provide our Services to you, to enable you to access and use our Services, to deliver your communications to their intended destination, and to analyze our customers’ use of our Services, to improve our Services, and to detect fraudulent or unlawful activity in connection with Shoffr accounts.
Below are some additional details regarding how we use categories of data we collect.
Customer Content. We use Customer Content for the purposes that you allow us access to it, like conveying it to and from your applications that interface with the end users. We may also use Customer Content stored on our systems to troubleshoot issues such as quality concerns.

Data collected through tracking technologies like cookies and web beacons. We collect data through tracking technologies so we can understand how customers are using our account portal, store concierge applications, end consumers applications and bots, and what regions our customers are coming from.
