If you choose a direct payment gateway to complete your purchase, Shopify securely stores your credit card information which is encrypted through the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI-DSS). Your purchase transaction data is stored only as is necessary to complete your online purchase transaction. However, after your purchase is complete, your information is immediately deleted.
Please Note: All direct payment gateways adhere to strict standards set by PCI-DSS as managed by the PCI Security Standards Council, which is a joint effort with brands like Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Discover.
PCI-DSS requirements help ensure the secure handling of credit-card information by our online store and its service providers.

SECTION 5 - THIRD-PARTY SERVICES
In general, the third-party providers used by us only collect, use, and disclose your information to the extent necessary to allow them to perform the services they provide to us.
However, certain third-party service providers such as payment gateways, and other payment transaction processors have their own privacy policies in respect to the information we're required to provide them for purchase-related transactions.
For these providers, we recommend that you carefully read their privacy policies to fully understand the manner in which your personal information is handled by these providers.
In particular, remember that certain providers may be located in, or have facilities located in a different jurisdiction, so if you elect to proceed with a transaction that involves the services of a third-party service provider, your information could become subject to the laws of that particular jurisdiction(s), and which that particular service provider, or its facilities are located.
For example, if you're located in Canada, and your transaction is processed by a payment gateway located in the United States, then your personal information used in completing that transaction may be subject to disclosure under United States legislation, including the Patriot Act.
