- Who are we?
We are committed to protecting the privacy of our customers in accordance with applicable data protection laws, including the General Data Protection Regulation Laws (GDPR).
- What we collect
When you purchase something from our store, as part of the buying and selling process, we collect the personal information you give us such as your name, address and email address. We collect that information in order to provide our Services and Website to you and to promote our business. When you browse our store, we also automatically receive your computer’s internet protocol (IP) address in order to provide us with information that helps us learn about your browser and operating system.
When you provide us with personal information to complete a transaction, verify your credit card, place an order, 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.
- 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 anytime, by contacting us at email@example.com. There are also unsubscribe instructions included in all correspondence from us so that you can withdraw consent at any time.
- Changes to this Policy
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. You can read about Shopify’s PCI-DSS Compliance here.

- These third parties may be provided with access to your personal details in order to fulfil their main function but we will contractually restrict them from using such information for any other purpose.
All third parties are required to respect the confidentiality of your personal information. They are required to take appropriate security measures to protect your personal information. We do not allow them to use it for their own purposes, but only as we specify and in accordance with our instructions.
The Company takes reasonable precautions, including administrative, technical, and physical measures – to help safeguard Data About Customers against loss, theft, and misuse as well as unauthorised access, disclosure, alteration, and destruction.
