    I was using WooCommerce with a site theme I purchased. When I set up woocommerce on its own on a different site, I had to sign away my privacy by agreeing to use JetPack and WordPress.com – they monitor all my business, my web site. YOU GIVE UP YOUR PRIVACY using WooCommerce and get to pay for the privilege.

    BE VERY WARRY of this platform for payments.

    Specifically – What Data Does Jetpack Sync?

    As part of the required connection to WordPress.com, Jetpack syncs your site’s data to a shadow site on the WordPress.com servers.

    To take advantage of the valuable features of Jetpack, certain information about the content, settings, and configuration of your site must be synced with our servers. This data begins to sync when Jetpack is installed and connected to WordPress.com.

    We handle synced data under the terms of our Privacy Policy. and more and more data they keep about your business.

    That’s a choice you made. That’s not something you HAVE to do unless you want support to access your site easily.

    I run 30 sites that are HIPPA compliant sites and we never give WC access without signing NDAs.

    Jetpack is not required to use WooCommerce. You only need to use it if you are also using the WooCommerce Services plugin (e.g. for automated taxes), and WooCommerce does not forcibly install Jetpack (it is optionally installed while going through the setup wizard).
