When you purchase from our online store, you give us some personal information like your name, address, and email address during the process. When you browse our store, our system automatically registers your Internet protocol (IP) address so we can learn how our customers’ operating systems and browsers interact with our site. As far as emails go, we will only send you marketing emails about new products, sales, etc., with your permission.
When you input your personal information during the checkout process (name, address, credit card info), we imply that you are giving us consent to collect that info for the purpose of the business transaction only. If we ever ask for personal information for another reason besides a business transaction (like for marketing emails), we will ask you directly for expressed consent and give you an option to say no.
If you decide you want to withdraw your consent for us to contact you or collect your info, you can contact us at email@example.com.
We may disclose your information to a third party if we are required by law, or you violate our Terms of Service.
If you complete your transaction through a direct payment gateway (meaning through our site), then we may store your credit card information. Not to worry though, this info is encrypted through the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI-DSS).
Your transaction data is not stored forever, only for as long as it is necessary to complete the purchase. After the purchase is complete, the system deletes your data. All direct payment gateways follow the standards set by PCI-DSS. The PCI-DSS was established by the PCI Security Standards Council, an organization developed by the efforts of Visa, American Express, Mastercard, and Discover. These rules ensure your credit card information is handled securely by our store and service providers.
Any third party service we use will only collect, store, and use your data to the extent that is necessary to do their jobs. Certain third parties, like direct payment gateways, have their own policies about the kind of information we are to provide to them. We recommend reviewing the privacy policies of these services so you can understand how they store and use your data.
It is crucial to remember that some of these parties may have operations or facilities in separate jurisdictions from you or us. So, if you proceed with a transaction that uses the services of these third parties, your data may be subject to the laws of that particular jurisdiction.
For example, if you live in Mexico and your transaction is processed by a payment gateway located in the United States, then your personal information used in completing that transaction will be subject to United States legislation, including the Patriot Act.
When you click on links on our site, they may take you to another website. We are not responsible for the privacy practices of these other websites, and we encourage you to read their privacy statements.
We take great precautions and adhere to the best industry standards to protect your personal information. When you provide us with your credit card information, it is encrypted with secure socket layer technology (SSL) and stored with AES-256 encryption. No exchange of information over the Internet is 100% secure, but we do our absolute best to make sure your data is safe by following all PCI-DSS requirements and implementing additional industry protective measures.
