We collect the following Personal Data from you in connection with the Service:
Basic Account Information: we ask for basic information from you in order to set up your account. We collect typical “business card information” such as your first and last name, physical address, email address. This is the basic information that we collect when you register to download our free service or buy any payment service.
Transaction and Billing Information: information that you provide in connection with your purchase of one of our services – a design kit, a Webflow template or a subscription plan – and that is required to process the transaction and your payment, for example billing name and surname, a billing address, a VAT number, the email you use for your webflow account. You must only provide us with Billing Information for accounts that you have the lawful right to access. We don’t see and collect any financial information such as credit card numbers. These are provided directly to PayPal whose use of your personal data is governed by their privacy policies.
User Account Information: information that identifies you to our services, such as your email address, password.
Credentials: depending on the services you use, you may provide us with credentials for your website (like SSH, FTP, and SFTP username and password, or webflow credentials). For example, you may provide us with these credentials in order to allow us to troubleshoot problems on your projects and site more quickly.
Communications with Us: You may also provide us information when you communicate with our team about a support question or post a question about your site in our public forums.
Important Note: Users of our Services should not use end-customer personal data (e.g. actual or “live” end-customer data) when building their projects. Industry practice is to use “dummy data” that does not refer to actual people. Please also do not provide us with any sensitive personal data while building your projects. For example, do not provide personal health information or personal financial information). If this type of data is necessary to make your prototype “come alive”, use dummy data instead.
