Your data is stored through WordPress data storage, databases and the general WordPress application. Your data is stored on a secure server behind a firewall.
If you choose a direct payment method to complete your purchase, WordPress stores encrypted credit card data through PCI DSS (PCI-DSS). Your purchase transaction data is stored only as long as necessary to complete your purchase transaction. After it is complete, your credit card information is deleted.
All direct payment gateways adhere to the standards set by PCI-DSS as handled by the PCI Security Standards Council, which is a joint effort of brands such as Visa, MasterCard, American Express, and Discover.
PCI-DSS requirements help ensure the secure handling of credit card information from stores and their service providers.

SECTION 5 – THIRD PARTY SERVICES
In general, third-party services used by us may only collect, use and disclose your information to the extent necessary for them to perform the services they provide to us.
However, some third-party service providers, such as payment gateways and other payment transaction processors, have their own privacy policies regarding the information we are required to provide to them for their purchase-related transactions.
For these third parties, it is recommended that you read their privacy policies so that you can understand how your personal information will be handled by them.
In particular, you should be minded that some providers may be located in or have facilities that are in a different jurisdiction than you or us. So if you decide to proceed with a transaction involving the services of a third-party service provider, your information may be subject to the laws of the jurisdiction(s) where the third parties are located.
As an example, if you are located in Canada and your transaction is made by a payment gateway located in the United States, then personal information that is used in the conduct of the transaction may be disclosed under U.S. law, including the Patriot Act.
