2.2. Users' Data is Shared with Wix

This will result in flexibility in your Privacy and Acceptable Data Use policies. In addition, you must send a record to Wix each time in order to completely delete the users you have removed from the site members and links from the Wix database, this request may not always be accepted.

2.3. No Wix Office in Turkey

All your legal proceedings can be resolved either by email or in local courts in Tel Aviv. In the complaints on that the owners of websites that have been deleted before or whose premium package and domain name renewals have been stopped continue to be charged in the following periods, you may encounter people who have no choice but to try one of these 2 methods.

2.4. Some Apps May Have to Pay Additional Fees

Even if you haven't upgraded to the premium package, you can use most Wix applications for free, but when your needs increase or you move to a different market target, these applications may need to be used with a higher package or you may have to pay an additional package fee for this application. Although the majority of users do not see this as a problem, the needs of e-commerce sites that are especially interested in search network and e-mail marketing are changing and increasing over time.

The Ascend app is available with premium packages and allows you to send limited number of email campaigns, notification emails. To change this situation, you need to either do a separate Ascend upgrade or upgrade your existing premium package to one of the top packages, so you can use it for unlimited use. Likewise, there is a capacity limit within the site for the video's application. To overcome these problems, you can install external plugins on your site, or you can prefer Youtube instead of video application.
