International Growth: In recognition of the global nature of our user base, Squarespace Ireland Limited, our Irish entity, is going to provide services to our users outside of the US. For users who are not residents of or who do not have their principal place of business in the US, the Terms of Service will be an agreement with Squarespace Ireland Limited and the laws of Ireland will apply. If you are a resident of or have your principal place of business in the United States of America or any of its territories or possessions, the Terms of Service will be an agreement with Squarespace, Inc. and the laws of the State of New York will apply.
Data Processing Addendum: Additionally, we’ve incorporated a Data Processing Addendum (DPA) into our updated Terms of Service that may apply to you if you (or your use of our services) is subject to EU data protection law (including the GDPR). The DPA will be posted on May 14 and will explain how we handle, on your instructions, your and other people’s personal information that you collect or submit using our services.
Services Provided: We made changes to the terms to clarify our relationship with our users in regards to what we do and provide as part of our services. We also made changes such as raising the minimum age of our users from thirteen (13) to sixteen (16) years old.
We hope you’ll find these updated and new terms and policies beneficial, but if you have any feedback, please feel free to contact us. We’ll review all feedback we receive on the matter, and will take action as appropriate. Keep in mind that we may not be able to respond to these requests individually.
Overall, you should not experience any change in how you use Squarespace’s products and services, and our platform will continue to provide you with the experience you’ve come to know and trust.
