Stripe (E-Commerce Payment Gateway)
Stripe provides us with the online e-commerce platform that allows us to sell our services to you. Your data is stored through Stripe’s data storage, databases and the general Stripe application. Stripe stores your data on a secure server behind a firewall.
When you purchase from Alfred, Stripe stores your credit card data. It is encrypted through the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI-DSS). Your purchase transaction data is stored only as a log and is necessary to complete your purchase transaction. This log contains only transaction data, and not personal information, although we do collect and use information about your purchases that are made through the App in order to provide you with an enhanced user experience, and to deliver information about third party services to you. See Information You Provide to Us for more information on data collection and use. PCI-DSS requirements help ensure the secure handling of credit card information by the Alfred Platform and its service providers.

- To a buyer or other successor in the event or a merger, divestiture, restructuring, reorganization, dissolution, sale or transfer of some or all of Alfred’s assets, whether to not as a going concern or as part of a bankruptcy, liquidation, or similar proceeding, in which personal information held by Alfred about our Website users is among the assets transferred;
