When you provide us with personal information to complete a transaction, verify your credit card, place an order, arrange a delivery, or return a product, we imply that you agree to our collection and use it only for specific reasons.

Section 4-Purchase
Our store is hosted on Shopify Inc. They provide us with an online e-commerce platform that allows us to sell our products and services to you.
Your data is stored through Shopify's data storage, database and general Shopify application. They store your data on a secure server behind a firewall.

Pay:
If you choose a direct payment gateway to complete the purchase, Shopify will store your credit card data. It is encrypted through the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI-DSS). Your purchase transaction data is only stored for the time required to complete the purchase transaction. After completion, your purchase transaction information will be deleted.
All direct payment gateways follow the standards set by PCI-DSS managed by the PCI Security Standards Committee, which is a joint effort of brands such as Visa, MasterCard, American Express, and Discover.
PCI-DSS requirements help ensure that our stores and their service providers handle credit card information securely.
For more information, you may also need to read Shopify's terms of service (https://www.shopify.com/legal/terms) or privacy statement (https://www.shopify.com/legal/privacy).

Part 5-Third Party Services
Generally, the third-party providers we use will only collect, use and disclose your information to the extent necessary to allow them to perform the services provided to us.
However, some third-party service providers (such as payment gateways and other payment transaction processors) have their own privacy policies for the information we need to provide you with purchase-related transactions.
For these providers, we recommend that you read their privacy policies so that you can understand how these providers will handle your personal information.
In particular, please keep in mind that some providers may be located in a jurisdiction outside of you or us, or in a jurisdiction different from you or us. Therefore, if you choose to conduct a transaction involving the services of a third-party service provider, your information may be subject to the laws of the jurisdiction where the service provider or its facilities are located.
For example, if you are located in Canada and your transaction is processed by a payment gateway located in the United States, the personal information used to complete the transaction may be subject to disclosure under U.S. laws, including the Patriot Act.
Once you leave our store’s website or redirect to a third-party website or application, you will no longer be bound by this privacy policy or our website’s terms of service.
