We collect information about you during the checkout process on our store.
What we collect and store
While you visit Susteo, we’ll track:
Stores you’ve viewed: we’ll use this to, for example, show you vendor stores you’ve recently viewed.
Products you’ve viewed: we’ll use this to, for example, show you products you’ve recently viewed.
Location, IP address and browser type: we’ll use this for purposes like estimating taxes and shipping.
Shipping address: we’ll ask you to enter this so we can, for instance, estimate shipping before you place an order, and send you the order!
When you purchase from us, we’ll ask you to provide information including your name, billing address, shipping address, email address, phone number, credit card/payment details and optional account information like username and password. We’ll use this information for purposes, such as, to:
- Send you information about your account and order
- Respond to your requests, including refunds and complaints
- Process payments and prevent fraud
- Set up your account for our store
- Comply with any legal obligations we have, such as calculating taxes
- Improve our store offerings
- Send you marketing messages, if you choose to receive them
- If you create an account, we will store your name, address, email and phone number, which will be used to populate the checkout for future orders.
We generally store information about you for as long as we need the information for the purposes for which we collect and use it, and we are not legally required to continue to keep it. For example, we will store order information for two years for tax and accounting purposes. This includes your name, email address and billing and shipping addresses.
We will also store comments or reviews, if you choose to leave them.

Members of our team have access to the information you provide us. For example, both Administrators of Susteo Multivendor and Marketplace Owners/Store Managers can access:
- Order information like what was purchased, when it was purchased and where it should be sent/

Susteo team members, such as customer support representatives, product developers, and marketing personnel only have access to information to help fulfill orders, process refunds and support you.
What we share with others
We have certain integrations with third parties who help us provide seamless services with orders and other store services for you. For example – payment gateways to process and complete your orders or web analytics to make your store and shopping experience better.
We accept payments through trusted and accredited payment services providers. When processing payments, some of your data will be passed to these partners, including information required to process or support the payment, such as the purchase total and billing information.
