Information about our client's users
XM handles information relating to our client’s own customers (or end-users) as a service provider on behalf of our customers. Sage eCommerce integrates with the Sage ERP system and syncs in more than 65 data-tables both ways. Nearly all of the data stored in the Sage eCommerce platform is inherited from the Sage ERP solution. Apart from newsletter signups and potentially customer shipment (ship-to) information, there is no additional data that is stored in the Sage eCommerce platform. All customer information is owned by our clients and if the information is deleted from the Sage solution, it will be permanently deleted from the Sage eCommerce platform as well. Since this information is owned by our clients, our use of this information is governed by our agreements with our clients and is also subject to our client’s Privacy Policies.
