Section 1: What do we do with your information?

With your permission, we may send you occasional emails about new products and promotions.

When you provide us with personal information to place an order, arrange for a delivery or return a purchase, we imply that you consent to our collecting it and using it for that specific reason only.

If we ask for your personal information for any other reason, like marketing, we will either ask you directly for your express consent, or provide you with an opportunity to say no.

Your data is stored through Shopify’s data storage and the general Shopify application. They store your data on a secure server behind a firewall.

Payment

If you choose a direct payment gateway to complete your purchase, then Shopify stores your credit card data. It is encrypted through the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI-DSS). Your purchase transaction data are stored only as long as is necessary to complete your transaction. After that is completes, your purchase transaction information is deleted.

All direct payment gateways adhere to the standards set by PCI-DSS as managed by the PCI Security Standards Council, which is a joint effort of brands like Visa, Mastercard, American Express and Discover.

PCI-DSS requirements help ensure the secure handling of credit card information by our store and its service providers.

Section 5: Third-Party Services

In general, our third-party providers only collect, use and disclose your information to the extent necessary to allow them to perform the services they provide to us.

However, certain third-party service providers, such as payment gateways and other payment transaction processors, have their own privacy policies in respect to the information we are required to provide to them for your purchase-related transactions.

For these providers, we recommend that you read their privacy policies to understand how they treat your personal information. In particular, do note that certain providers may be located in in a jurisdiction different from either yours or ours. So, if you elect to proceed with a transaction that involves the services of a third-party service provider, your information may become subject to the jurisdiction of that country. As an example, if you are located in Canada and your transaction is processed by a payment gateway located in the United States, then your personal information used in completing that transaction may be subject to disclosure under United States legislation, including the Patriot Act.

Once you leave our store’s website or are redirected to a third-party website or application, you are no longer governed by this Privacy Policy or by our website’s Terms of Service.
