What personal data we collect and why we collect it
While using our site, we may ask you to provide us with certain personally identifiable information that can be used to contact or identify you.
- Products you’ve viewed: we’ll use this to, for example, show you products you’ve recently viewed
- Location, Internet Protocol (IP) address and browser type: we’ll use this for purposes like estimating taxes and shipping (if applicable)
Registration and payment
When you purchase from us, we’ll ask you to provide information including your name, billing address, email address, and phone number. We’ll use this information for such purposes as to:
- Send you information about your order
- Respond to your requests
- Comply with any legal obligations we have, such as calculating taxes (if applicable)
- Improve our store offerings
We generally store information about you for as long as we need the information for the purposes for which we collect and use it, and we are not legally required to continue to keep it.
We will also store comments or reviews, if you choose to leave them.
We accept payments through Global Payments, a secure third-party vendor. When processing payments, some of your data will be passed to Global Payments, including information required to process or support the payment, such as the purchase total and billing information.
Embedded content from other websites
Pages on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.
Log data and analytics
Like many site operators, we collect information that your browser sends whenever you visit our site (log data).
This log data may include information such as your computer’s IP address, browser type, browser version, the pages of our site that you visit, the time and date of your visit, the time spent on those pages and other statistics.
In addition, we may use Google Analytics and other third party services to collect, monitor and analyze this data.
Who we share your data with
We share information with third parties who help us provide our orders and store services to you. These include, but may not be limited to:
How long we retain your data
If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.
For users that register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.
What rights you have over your data
If you have an account on this site, or have left comments, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.
Where we send your data
Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.
How we protect your data
This site uses commercially acceptable 256-bit encryption, but remember that no method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure. Only a small number of our team has access to the information you provide us. For example, both Administrators and Shop Managers can access:
- Order information like what was purchased, when it was purchased and where it should be sent, and
- Customer information like your name, email address, and billing and shipping information.
Our team members have access to this information to help fulfil orders, process refunds and support you.
