In order for us to operate our business and website properly, there are occasions where it is necessary to collect or process personal information (data) about you.

2. CONSENT

When you provide us with personal information (i.e. to complete a transaction,  place an order, verify your credit card, 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 you have provided us with personal information (eg. completed an online form or purchased a product) you have certain rights that you may exercise with regards to this personal information.

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.

4. SHOPIFY

Our store 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.

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 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.
