WHAT PERSONAL DATA WE COLLECT AND WHY WE COLLECT IT

1. PURCHASING FROM OUR STORE

When you purchase items from our store we collect the personal information you give us such as your name, address and email address and order history.  We also use cookies, web beacons or other tools that improve your user experience of our site.

Other information we collect includes the Operating System (OS) running on your device, Internet Protocol (IP) address (which may be used to obtain your geolocation), access times, browser type, and language, and the website you visited before our site. We also collect information about how you use our site, including the elements you have interacted with.

2. PAYMENT PROCESSING AND SECURITY OF YOUR INFORMATION

Our store is built on an e-commerce software platform called Woocommerce that allows us to sell our products and services to you.

If you provide us with your credit card information during the payment process, we send it to our PCI-DSS compliant payment gateway for processing using SSL encryption technology. Your credit card information is never stored for use beyond your current transaction.

All direct payment gateways comply with 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 our payment processors and service providers.

Information is stored under physical, electronic, or procedural controls under standards established by the credit card industry. We participate in a security program which requires us to meet specific security measures to protect your credit card information. The software that we use is compliant with these regulations. These security measures are put in place to protect against the loss, misuse, and alteration of your account information.

To protect your personal information, we take reasonable precautions and follow generally accepted industry practices to make sure it is not inappropriately lost, misused, accessed, disclosed, altered or destroyed. Your personal information is protected by your password – never share this password with anyone. We will never contact you to ask you for your password.

If you provide us with your credit card information, the information is transmitted to our server using  secure socket layer technology (SSL) which employs the AES-256 encryption standard.
