SO WHAT KIND OF INFORMATION DO WE COLLECT FROM YOU?
Well, when you purchase something from our store we collect the personal information that you give us through the buying and selling process. This information includes such items as your name, physical and email address, and any other information you enter into one of our forms.
While browsing our store, we also automatically receive your computer’s internet protocol (IP) address in order to provide us with information such as what browser you’re using and what operating system your computer is running on.
We’ll also use your email address, with your permission, to send you emails about our store, new products and other updates. Which of course, you can always opt out of at a later time.
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 delivery (or return) of a purchase, you imply that you consent to our collecting and using that information for those specific reasons only.
If we ask for your personal information for a secondary reason, like joining our email newsletter or other marketing, we will either ask you directly for your expressed consent, or provide you with the opportunity to say no.
HOW DO I WITHDRAW MY CONSENT?
If you change your mind after opting-in, you may withdraw your consent for us to contact you, use, or disclose your information in two ways. 1. Marketing emails will have an “unsubscribe” link in the email. Click on that and follow the process. Or 2. Contact us through email at email@example.com or mail us at:

WILL YOU DISCLOSE MY PERSONAL INFORMATION?
We may disclose your personal information if we are required by law to do so or if you violate our Terms of Service.
WHAT ABOUT 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.
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.
WHAT ABOUT ANY THIRD-PARTY SERVICES?
In general, the third-party providers used by us will 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 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.
When you click on links within our store, they may direct you away from our website. We are not responsible for the privacy practices of other sites and we strongly encourage you to read their privacy policies and terms of service as well.
HOW DO WE PROTECT YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION?
We take reasonable precautions and follow industry best practices to make sure that your personal information is not inappropriately lost, misused, accessed, disclosed, altered or destroyed.
When you provide us with your credit card information, the info is encrypted using secure socket layer (SSL) technology and stored with an AES-256 encryption. Although no method of transmitting personal information over the internet is 100% secure, we follow all PCI-DSS requirements and implement additional generally accepted industry standards.
