Collection of Information
When you purchase something from our store, as part of the buying and selling process, we collect the personal information you give us such as your name, address, email address and phone contact. By providing this information to us, you have given your consent for data collection.
When you browse our store, we also automatically receive your computer’s internet protocol (IP) address in order to provide us with information that helps us learn about your browser and operating system.
Email promotional marketing is included by default and comes with an opt-out option: We may send you emails about our store, new products and other updates only with your express permission.
We assure that any such information you provide to us will not be shared, except with your express written consent.
When you provide us with personal information to complete a transaction, verify your credit card, 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 a secondary reason, like marketing, we will either ask you directly for your expressed consent, or provide you with an opportunity to say no.
If after you opt-out and you change your mind, you may still contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org to expressively include your consent for us to contact you for our email promotional marketing.
Data & Payment Security
Our storefront is hosted on Shopify Inc. They provide us with the online e-commerce platform that allows us to sell our products and services to you.
Your data is stored through Shopify’s data storage, databases and the general Shopify application. They store your data on a secure server behind a firewall.
Your credit card information is encrypted using secure socket layer technology (SSL) and stored with a AES-256 encryption.
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 is stored only as long as is necessary to complete your purchase transaction. After that is complete, 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.
