The CartText mobile application and platform and the CartText.com website (collectively identified herein as the “App”) are owned and operated by Cart Group LLC doing business as CartText (“CartText” or “we”). Through the App, CartText provides certain customer management and marketing software and services that assist registered users in engaging with customers and completing potential sales through a registered user’s Shopify store or similar authorized service provider store (collectively, the “Services”). These Services include, without limitation, automated retrieval of selected customer information from a registered user’s store and marketing communications to selected customers by SMS and MMS messages.
Throughout this policy, we use the term “Personal Information” to describe information that can be associated with a specific person and can be used on its own or with other information to identify, contact, or locate a single person, or to identify an individual in context. We do not consider Personal Information to include information that has been aggregated and/or anonymized so that it does not identify a specific user.
