Privacy and Safety
Your privacy is extremely important to us. We have created this Policy in order to inform you of how we collect, use, communicate, disclose, and make use of personal information.
When you purchase a product from our store, as part of the buying and selling process, we collect the personal information you provide us such as your name, address and email address.
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. We will protect personal information by reasonable security safeguards against loss or theft, as well as unauthorized access, use, disclosure, copying, or modification.
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.
We will collect and use the personal information only with the sole intention of fulfilling those purposes specified by us and for other compatible purposes, unless we acquire the consent of the individual concerned or as required by law.
We will only retain personal information as long as necessary for the fulfillment of those purposes.
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-in, you change your mind, you may withdraw your consent for us to contact you, for the continued collection, use or disclosure of your information, at anytime, by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Credit and Debit Card Use
We do not store or retain your credit card information. We use third party payment gateways for credit and debit card processing. 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.
- Visa, Mastercard, American Express, Visa Debit
Third Party Services
Ordinarily, the third-party providers we use will only collect, use and disclose your information to the extent necessary to allow them to perform the services they provide to us.
However, particular 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 so you can understand the manner in which your personal information will be handled by these providers.
Notably, remember that certain providers may be located in or have facilities that are located in a different jurisdiction than either you or us. So if you elect to proceed with a transaction that involves the services of a third-party service provider, then your information may become subject to the laws of the jurisdiction(s) in which that service provider, or its facilities are located.
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.
