Generally, the foregoing third parties are required to protect your personal data in a manner consistent with this Privacy Policy by not using that personal data for any purposes other than those purposes for which we use that personal data as identified in this Privacy Policy.

Anonymous Data Collected. In addition to the information you provide when you use our Site, we or our service providers may use various technologies to collect anonymous information about the use of our Site. For example, we may use technology to track how many visitors access our Site, the date and time of their visit(s), the length of their visit(s), and which pages they view. We also use technology to determine which web browsers our visitors use and the address from which they access our Site. These technologies do not identify you personally.

Security. We and our service providers have established commercially reasonable safeguards to prevent unauthorized access to or misuse of your personal data. For example, our Site is hosted on Shopify Inc., which provides 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. Shopify stores your data on a secure server behind a firewall. If you provide your credit card information, the information is encrypted using secure socket layer technology (SSL) and stored with an AES-256 encryption. Despite our or our service providers’ efforts and all precautions we or they may take, communications over the public Internet cannot be guaranteed to be 100% secure at all times. Therefore, we or our service providers cannot guarantee, and do not represent or warrant that, your personal data will never be disclosed in a manner inconsistent with this Privacy Policy (for example, as a result of unauthorized acts by a third party that violate applicable law). The primary safeguard is the requirement that a password be used to verify your identity before granting access to or making corrections to any of your personal data.

Payment. 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.

Children. We do not knowingly collect personal data from children under the age of 13. If you are under 13 years of age, please do not give us any personal data. If you have reason to believe that a child has provided personal data to us, please contact us at the phone number or email address listed below and we will take commercially reasonable steps to delete that information from our databases.

These third party links are provided for your reference and convenience only and do not imply any endorsement by us of the activities or content of these third-parties’ websites or any association with their company or operation.

Transfer of Data to Foreign Countries.
