You'll notice this is longer than the other sections on this page. That's because we take privacy really seriously.
SECTION 1 - WHAT DO WE DO WITH YOUR INFORMATION?
Our store here is supported by our friends at Shopify. When you purchase something from our store, Shopify collects some information from you. You know, things like your name, address and email address. We just use this information to process your order and for nothing else.
When you browse our store, Shopify also automatically receives your computer's internet protocol (IP) address and they use THAT to ensure you have an easier and quicker store browsing experience. We may also reference IP addresses when reviewing orders that appear fraudulent.
Should you decide to buy something from us, you'll have the option to sign up for our mailing list. If you sign up, we may email you with offers and news related to this store and this store only. Otherwise--besides emails related specifically to your order (like order and shipping confirmations) we'll leave you completely alone. Hopefully you'll visit us again.
SECTION 2 - CONSENT
How do you get my 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 infer 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 ask you directly for your expressed consent.
How do I withdraw my consent?
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 any time, by contacting us at email@example.com. We'll also provide links to expedite opting-out on any future communications. We seriously only want to send you things you want to get.
SECTION 3 - DISCLOSURE
We may disclose your personal information if we are required by law to do so or if you violate our Terms of Service.
SECTION 4 - SHOPIFY
As we mentioned above, our store is hosted on Shopify Inc. They provide us with this great online e-commerce platform that allows us to sell our products to you.
Any information that you give us for your orders will be stored by Shopify. They store your data on a secure server behind a firewall.
Payment: When you pay with credit card or PayPal, Shopify stores your payment 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.
SECTION 5 - THIRD-PARTY SERVICES
We only work with Third-Party Services that we are very familiar with and have fully vetted. These third-parties--like the payment card gateways mentioned above--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 our payment gateway (Braintree) and other payment transaction processors (PayPal), 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.
In particular, remember that certain providers may be located in or have facilities that are located 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.
SECTION 6 - SECURITY
To protect your personal information, we take reasonable precautions and follow industry best practices to make sure it is not inappropriately lost, misused, accessed, disclosed, altered or destroyed.
If you provide us with your credit card information, the information is encrypted using secure socket layer technology (SSL) and stored with AES-256 encryption. Although no method of transmission over the Internet or electronic storage is 100% secure, we follow all PCI-DSS requirements and implement additional generally accepted industry standards.
