SHOPLINE is committed to providing users with safer services and improved compliance capabilities. The Compliance Center will introduce the responsibilities and obligations between SHOPLINE, customers, suppliers, and partners separately. In order to enable customers and the market to better understand SHOPLINE's compliance practices, we will gradually disclose SHOPLINE's compliance practices and service capabilities through third-party audit reports, based on the best practices in the industry. The success of our customers is SHOPLINE's best achievement, so please give us timely feedback on your compliance requirements, and we will continue to improve.

SHOPLINE - Shared Responsibility Model

When you (hereinafter referred to as “you” or “merchant”) use SHOPLINE’s (hereinafter referred to as “we” or “SHOPLINE”) software-as-a-service platform (hereinafter referred to as the “Platform”), it is important to understand the shared responsibility model and which security tasks are handled by SHOPLINE and which tasks are handled by you.

Security and compliance are the shared responsibilities between SHOPLINE and the merchant. As shown in the shared responsibility chart below, SHOPLINE is responsible for the security of the Platform itself and the associated infrastructures (including software, networking, services and physical facilities) used to provide the Platform to merchants. At the same time, the merchant is responsible for how it configures the platform, the security of the data stored on the Platform and the security of the user accounts, devices and third-party software or applications used to access the Platform.

We elaborate on each of SHOPLINE and the merchant’s security responsibilities further below.

SHOPLINE - Shared Responsibility Model

SHOPLINE’s Security Responsibilities

As mentioned above, SHOPLINE is responsible for the security of the Platform itself and the associated infrastructures (including software, networking, services and physical facilities) used to provide the Platform to merchants.

Merchant’s Security Responsibilities

The merchant is responsible for how it configures the platform, the security of the data stored on the Platform and the security of the user accounts, devices and third-party software or applications used to access the Platform. We elaborate on this further below.

Security of data stored on the Platform

The merchant is solely responsible for managing the information and data stored within its account in accordance with all applicable laws and regulations and SHOPLINE’s Terms of Services. This includes taking steps to ensure that its password for accessing the Platform is kept safe from any inadvertent and unauthorised disclosure, and backing up data regularly.

Security configuration and management tasks

As the merchant is responsible for deploying its online store (hereinafter referred to as the “Merchant Store”) on the Platform, it is also responsible for the security configuration and management tasks related to such deployment. The merchant is responsible for the management of the Merchant Store (including access control and log review), any third-party application software or utilities installed by the merchant on the Platform (hereinafter referred to as “Third-Party Plugins”) and the security configuration of such Third-Party Plugins.

Abstracted services

The merchant is responsible for the management of abstracted services such as Mailchimp and SmartPush. SHOPLINE does not assume any responsibility for the merchant’s use of these abstracted services, and so it is critical for the merchant to understand how security responsibilities are shared between the merchant and abstracted service provider, as well as what merchant data is shared by the abstracted service provider with third parties. The merchant is solely responsible for managing the data (including end consumer data) that can be accessed by the abstracted service provider, classifying the assets that can be accessed by the abstracted service provider and applying the appropriate permissions for such data and assets. IT security controls. Just as the responsibility to operate the IT environment is shared between SHOPLINE and the merchant, the responsibility to implement the appropriate IT security controls is similarly shared between SHOPLINE and the merchant. SHOPLINE is responsible for implementing controls for the infrastructure (including software, networking, services and physical facilities) used to provide the Platform, but the merchant is responsible for implementing controls related to its use of the Platform, including the storage of data on the Platform. Below are examples of controls that are managed by SHOPLINE, the merchant and/or both.

Inherited controls – controls which the merchant fully inherits from SHOPLINE. Examples include:

  • Physical and environmental controls
  • Patch management

Shared controls - controls that are managed by both SHOPLINE and the merchant. In a shared control, SHOPLINE is responsible for implementing controls for the infrastructure (including software, networking, services and physical facilities) used to provide the Platform, but the merchant is responsible for implementing controls related to its use of the Platform, including the storage of data on the Platform. Examples include:

  • Configuration management – SHOPLINE maintains the configuration of the Platform’s infrastructure devices, operating system, databases and applications. The merchant is responsible for configuring the Merchant Store, Third-Party Plugins and abstracted services.
  • Awareness and training – each of SHOPLINE and the merchant is responsible for training their own employees in connection with the use of the Platform.

Merchant controls - controls that are solely the responsibility of the merchant.



SHOPLINE aims to provide merchants with a “Software as a Service” platform (hereinafter referred to as “SHOPLINE” or the “Platform”) with all-in-one solutions for website building, leads generation, payments, logistics and other e-commerce related services.

Your customers’ information

In order to provide relevant SHOPLINE services to you, we may, on behalf of you and under your entrustment, collect the personal information of your customers who visit or place an order at the store, and process such personal information as directed by you. In general, we only collect and use this personal information as directed by you, and as further described in our Data Processing Addendum. Legally speaking, we are a “data processor” and we act so in accordance with the agreement we entered with you as well as the Privacy Policy. You, as the personal data controller, assume all responsibilities towards its customers. Because you decide how the personal information of your customers will be used, you need to make sure your customers understand how you (and how we on your behalf) collect and process their personal information.

You hereby acknowledge and authorize us to collect, store and process personal information from your customers for you to use the Platform and SHOPLINE services, and hereby undertake to us that you have obtained sufficient and necessary authorization, consent and permission from your customers for us to directly collect and use their personal information required to perform relevant services. You should do this by, at a minimum, posting a privacy policy on your store that describes the information you collect, how you use it, and whom you share it with. It is your sole responsibility to respond to queries and requests from your customers with regard to how you process their personal information.

How we share your personal information

We do not share personal information with any third parties unless one or more of the following circumstances exist:

  • At the request of the Personal Data Subject, or with the prior explicit authorization or consent of the Personal Data Subject;
  • Related to the performance of our obligations under laws and regulations;
  • Directly related to national security or national defense security;
  • Directly related to public safety, public health and major public interests;
  • Directly related to criminal investigation, prosecution, trials and enforcement;
  • For the purpose of safeguarding the life, property and other major legitimate rights and interests of the Personal Data Subject or any other person, but it is difficult to obtain the consent of that person;
  • The personal information involved is disclosed to the public by the Personal Data Subject;
  • The personal information involved is collected from lawfully and publicly disclosed information;
  • Sharing with affiliated companies of SHOPLINE: In order to provide you with SHOPLINE products and services, to make recommendations that may be of interest to you, to troubleshoot accounts issues, and protect the personal and property safety of our affiliated companies or other users or the public, you acknowledge and agree that we may share your and your customers' personal information with our affiliated companies. We will only share personal information to the extent necessary and are bound by purposes as specified under the Privacy Policy. If we share sensitive personal information or our affiliated companies use and process the personal information for different purposes, we will seek authorization and consent from you again;
  • Sharing with our third-party partners: We will only share personal information for lawful, legitimate, necessary, specific and explicit purposes, and will only share personal information necessary to provide relevant services to you or your customers. We will not share personal information that can identify the Personal Data Subjects, unless otherwise permitted by laws or regulations. Generally, these third-party partners are also data controllers who will process personal information in their own accounts after obtaining the consent of the Personal Data Subjects. Such partners may have their own separate privacy policies and user agreements. We encourage you and your customers to read and comply with such user agreements and privacy policies.

In addition, almost all merchants will use non-SHOPLINE features or services when they use the Platform (including apps from Apps Store, payments gateways or logistics services providers). Please note that such features or services are provided by third parties. You shall read and understand the privacy policies and user agreements of third parties before providing any personal information to them. We are not responsible for the content of any third-party websites, and third-party policies on personal information and security measures.

How you exercise right over your personal information

We believe that you should be able to access and control your own personal information no matter where you live. You may have the right to request access to, correct, amend, delete, port to another service provider, restrict, or object to certain uses of your personal information (for example, direct marketing). You can access and correct your personal information directly through the “Personal Center” of SHOPLINE administrative panel. If you want to access or amend your other personal information, or encounter any difficulty in exercising the above right, you can contact us. To ensure security, we may request to verify your user identity before processing your request. Generally, your user identity will be verified and a reply will be provided within 15 business days upon receipt of your request.

In principle, we do not charge for your reasonable request. For repeating requests in a specific period of time, we reserve the right to charge you as appropriate; for requests that require excessive technical support (e.g., the need to develop a new system or fundamentally change existing practices) or entail other significant difficulties, we will provide you with alternatives.

You may terminate your SHOPLINE account in accordance with SHOPLINE Terms. You acknowledge and understand that you no longer have access to your SHOPLINE accounts and data relating to your SHOPLINE account once you terminate your SHOPLINE accounts. We will terminate your accounts after verifying your identity and agreeing with you on disposal of assets in your account. After termination, we will promptly delete your personal information or anonymize it unless it is necessary to retain your personal information according to any laws or regulations.

Please note that you shall respond directly to requests made by your customers (who are not our direct clients) relating to their personal information. Unless we receive a request from you for assistance, we may forward any request we receive from your customers to you or ask your customers to seek help directly from you.

How we protect your personal information

We take your personal information security very seriously. We have adopted technical security measures, appropriate organizational structure and management system and other protections in line with industry standards to prevent leak, damage, misuse, unauthorized use, disclosure or amendment of your personal information.

We use encrypted transmission technologies such as SSL to protect the security of data transition and use appropriate protection mechanisms to prevent malicious data attacks. We adopt an encrypted storage and data permission control mechanism for personal information to prevent your and your end users' personal information from being accessed, disclosed, used or altered without authorization, or intentionally or accidentally damaged or lost. Meanwhile, we appoint data protection officers as required by laws and regulations and set up a working group for personal information protection. We have also established relevant internal control management processes to strictly limit access to personal information to personnel to the minimum on a “need-to-know” basis.

Please note that the Internet is not an absolutely secure environment. This means we cannot guarantee the absolute security of your personal information. We strongly suggest that you shall safeguard the security of your SHOPLINE account by using a secure and complex password. In the event of a personal information security incident, we will immediately activate the emergency plan, take remedial measures, record the incident, and report it in time in accordance with the applicable laws and regulations.

How we retain your personal information

As we provide the Platform and SHOPLINE products and services to users in multiple jurisdictions, you acknowledge the information and data you provided to us may be transferred to, stored or processed outside of your country. In principle, we will store your personal information in Singapore. However, for statistical and analytical purposes, we may transfer your personal data to regions outside of Singapore. Nonetheless, we will ensure that your personal information is adequately protected as it is in the country or region where you are located and will use encryption in cross-border data transfer.

When you use the Platform and any SHOPLINE products and/or services, we will retain your and your customers’ personal information on behalf of you. We undertake that, we will only retain your and your customers’ personal information for such period as necessary to achieve the purposes as authorized by you and your customers hereunder, unless otherwise provided by law or regulation or otherwise authorized by the Personal Data Subjects.

If you terminate your SHOPLINE account or delete your information, or if we cease operation for whatever reasons, we will cease collecting your personal information and delete or anonymize the personal information we have collected, in accordance with laws and regulations.

How we use “cookies” and other tracking technologies

  1. What are "cookies?"

    A cookie is a small file stored in the Personal Data Subject’s computer, mobile phone or any other smart terminal device by the website server when it logs into the website or browses website content, usually containing identifiers, site names and some numbers and characters. When the Personal Data Subject visits the website again, the website can identify the browser of the Personal Data Subject through cookies. Cookies may store user preferences and other information.

  2. How “cookies” are used?

    When a Personal Data Subject uses our website, we may collect the device model, operating system, device identifier and login IP address information of the Personal Data Subject through cookies or similar technologies, as well as cache the browsing information and clicking information of the Personal Data Subject, so as to view the network environment of the Personal Data Subject. Cookies allow us to identify a Personal Data Subject when it visits the website, continuously optimize the user friendliness of the website and make adjustments to the website according to the needs of the Personal Data Subject. The Personal Data Subject can also change the settings of the browser so that the browser does not accept cookies on our website, but this may affect the Personal Data Subject’s use of some features of the website.

    On SHOPLINE website, with the help of cookies and other similar technologies, we can identify whether a Personal Data Subject is our user or the user’s customers each time the Personal Data Subject uses the Platform, SHOPLINE services or the store empowered by SHOPLINE, without having to re-login and authenticate on each page.

  3. How to manage “cookies”?

    Personal Data Subject can manage or delete certain categories of tracking technologies according to their own preferences. Many web browsers have a Do Not Track feature that sends a Do Not Track request to the website.

    In addition to the controls we provide, a Personal Data Subject may choose to enable or disable cookies in their Internet browsers. Most Internet browsers also allow Personal Data Subject to choose whether to disable all cookies or only third-party cookies. By default, most Internet browsers accept cookies, but this can be changed. For more information, see the Help menu in your Internet browser or the documentation of your device.

    On SHOPLINE website, a Personal Data Subject may delete existing tracking technologies by clearing the cache.

    When a Personal Data Subject browses a webpage without logging in, we will collect cookies necessary to realize the browsing feature in order to provide relevant services to the Personal Data Subject.

    Please note that if a Personal Data Subject refuses to use or remove the existing tracking technologies, it is necessary to personally change the user settings at each visit, and we may not be able to provide a quality user experience to the Personal Data Subject, and some feature may not be able to function properly

What is PCI-DSS Compliance?

The PCI DSS (Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard) is an information security standard for organizations or companies that accept or handle credit card payments.

This standard helps to create a secure environment and develop a robust payment card data security process, to better control cardholder data – including prevention, detection and appropriate reaction to security incidents, thus reducing credit card fraud.


Yes, SHOPLINE PAYMENT is Payment Card Industry Data Security Standards (PCI DSS) compliant and is accredited as a Level 1 Service Provider.

Both SHOPLINE PAYMENT’s payment processors and SHOPLINE PAYMENT are PCI compliant.

What data is stored on SHOPLINE PAYMENT?

SHOPLINE PAYMENT stores the data entered in the merchant’s checkout fields, such as name, address, country, and so on. This data is separate from the billing field data, such as the card number, cardholder name and card expiration date.

I have other questions about PCI-DSS.

The Cross-Border Privacy Rules (CBPR) system, initiated by the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC), is designed to facilitate secure and efficient cross-border data flows among member economies while ensuring robust data protection. This system is grounded in the APEC Privacy Framework and requires participating businesses to comply with a comprehensive set of data protection standards that align with this framework.

These standards cover essential aspects of data privacy, including protection, accountability, transparency, and choice for individuals. The CBPR system not only bolsters consumer privacy but also aids in regional economic integration by enabling secure data transfers in compliance with established privacy norms. Certified companies are assessed by APEC-approved Accountability Agents, who verify adherence to CBPR's privacy practices.

As of now, several APEC member economies have joined the CBPR system, including the United States, Japan, Canada, South Korea, Singapore, Australia, Chinese Taipei, the Philippines, and Mexico. The inclusion of these members reflects the growing importance and recognition of CBPR as a standard for privacy practices in the Asia-Pacific. For businesses operating across these economies, CBPR certification represents a commitment to safeguarding personal information in the global digital economy.

To strictly comply with cross-border data regulations and better serve markets in various countries from Singapore, SHOPLINE has applied for and successfully obtained CBPR certification, adhering to the cross-border data requirements of different countries.
