1. What personal information do we collect?
When you visit the Site, we collect certain information about your device – including information about your web browser, IP address, time zone, and some of the cookies that are installed on your device. Additionally, as you browse the Site, we collect information about the individual web pages or products that you view, what websites or search terms referred you to the Site, and information on how you interact with the Site. We refer to this information as “Device Information”.
We collect Device Information using the following technologies:
- “Cookies” are data files that are placed on your device or computer and often include an anonymous unique identifier. For more information about cookies, and how to disable cookies, visit http://www.allaboutcookies.org.
Additionally when you make a purchase or attempt to make a purchase through the Site, we collect certain information from you, including your name, address and email address. We refer to this information as “Order Information”.
Our store is hosted on an e-commerce platform provided by Shopify Inc, that allows us to sell our products and services to you.
We use Shopify’s data storage, databases and the general Shopify platform to store your data. Shopify stores this data securely behind a firewall.
For payments made using a direct payment gateway, we use Shopify to store 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.
