Effective Date: June 1, 2022

Last Updated: June 1, 2022



Cloudshop is being operated by MDS Call Solutions Inc. (MDSCSI), a business process outsourcing company specializing in contact center (call center) and digital solutions.  We offer voice and digital services, on top of software and application development services to complete our clients’ business solutions and market strategies.

We have developed a Privacy Policy to ensure and maintain transparency on how we collect, process, record, use and store Personal Information as defined by the Philippine Republic Act No. 10173 or the Data Privacy Act of 2012 (DPA), its implementing rules and regulations, and other existing laws and regulations relating to the handling of Personal Information.


This Policy describes the manner how Cloudshop, as a data keeper, collects, process, records, use, and store Personal Information; how it safeguard Personal Information; and interact with merchants and third parties that may have access to Personal Information.

This policy shall apply to all merchants who obtained the services of Cloudshop as well as their customers and shall authorize Cloudshop to transfer, store, and use Personal Information in the Philippines.

This Privacy Policy does not apply to services or products offered by other companies not registered as Cloudshop’s merchants and does not cover information practices of other companies and organizations who advertise our Services, and who may use cookies, pixel tags and other technologies to serve and offer relevant ads. 


By accessing or using the Sites in any manner, you also agree to be bound by Cloudshop Terms and Conditions. Please read the Cloudshop T&C carefully. If you do not accept all of the terms and conditions contained in or incorporated by reference into the Cloudshop T&C, please do not obtain our Services.


Through the customer’s purchase from the merchant’s website, we collect and store information. By completing the purchase, the customer consents to said collection. On the other hand, merchants’ consent to collection of information by obtaining our services.

We use the term “Personal Data” to refer to any information that identifies or can be used to identify you. Common examples of Personal Data include: full name, email address, digital identity, such as a login name or handle, information about your device, and certain metadata.

“Sensitive Personal Data” refers to a smaller subset of Personal Data which is considered more sensitive to the individual, such as race and ethnic origin, political opinions, religious or philosophical beliefs, trade-union membership, genetic or biometric information, physical or mental health information, medical insurance data, or sexual orientation.

We obtain Personal Information from the following categories of sources:

  • Directly from our merchants and their agents. For example, from information that merchants put into their website.

  • Indirectly from our merchant’s customers or their agents. For example, through information they input on our merchant’s website. 

  • Directly and indirectly from activity on our website. For example, from website usage details that are collected automatically. In addition, like many companies, we use “cookies” which are small text files a website can use to recognize repeat users, facilitate the user’s ongoing access to and use of the site and to track usage behavior of, for example, the web pages you visit.

  • From social media websites, such as Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn.

  • From third parties that assist us in providing certain transactions and services (e.g. payment processing, hosting), even though it appears that you may not have left our Site.

In providing Personal Information, the Customer or User agree to Cloudshop’s processing of the Personal Information.

These individuals are bound by confidentiality obligations and may be subject to discipline, including termination and criminal prosecution, if they fail to meet these obligations.
