If you have any concerns or questions about your privacy or use of our website, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
1. Information We May Collect
When you use our Site, we collect personal information about your use of our Site and information that you send us. Throughout this policy, we use the term “personal information” to describe information that identifies you or makes you identifiable. Information that has been anonymized so that it does not identify a specific individual is not “personal information.”
We may collect information that you voluntarily provide to us, including but not limited to, when you communicate via email or other channels with us, when you purchase products or services through our Site, when you respond to our communications or requests for information. The information you provide may include your name, contact information, payment and billing information. We only collect the personal information we need to allow us to respond to your request and/or provide the particular service you have sought. Without your personal information, we cannot respond to you or ensure your continued use and enjoyment of the Services.
Unless specifically requested and you use the method that we identify for such purpose, we request that you not send us any confidential or sensitive information.
2. How and Why We Use Your Information
We use your personal information to respond to your request and/or provide the particular service you have sought. We may also use your personal information to actively monitor, investigate, prevent and mitigate any alleged or actual prohibited, illicit or illegal activities on our Services; investigate, prevent, or mitigate violations of our terms, agreements or policies; and enforce our agreements with third parties and partners. We cannot perform our Services in accordance with our terms, agreements or policies without processing your personal information for such purposes.
We are committed to ensuring your safety and continued enjoyment of our Services. To do so, we use your personal information to combat spam, malware, malicious activities or security risks and to improve and enforce our security measures. We cannot ensure the security of our Services if we do not process your personal information for security purposes.
When you provide us with personal information to complete a transaction, verify your credit card, place an order, or any other service, 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 ask you directly for your expressed 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, by contacting us at email@example.com.
4. Information Sharing
We do not sell, exchange, transfer, or give your information to any other company or individual for any reason except as set forth below:
Our Service Providers. With your consent only, we share information with our service providers, suppliers, subcontractors, and similar third parties who provide services to us, or act on our behalf so that they can assist us with the maintenance of our Services. Our contracts with these service providers prohibit them from using or sharing with others, for other purposes than as directed by us, the information that we provide to them, or that they collect directly from our users.
Law Enforcement Requests. We may use, share, or disclose information about users in order to address legal concerns or liabilities, especially when we believe, in our sole discretion, that (a) a user has misused the Services such as to gain unauthorized access to any system, engaged in spamming, denial of service attacks, or similar attack; (b) disclosure is reasonably necessary to enforce our Terms and Conditions of Service to respond to suspected illegal or fraudulent activity; (c) to protect legal rights or defend against legal claims; (d) to allow us to pursue available remedies or limit the damages that we may sustain.
Your Consent. We will disclose your information to a person or entity for which disclosure you have given us your consent.
5. Links to Third Party Services
Our Services may include links to third party services where you might be able to post comments, reviews, or view third party information. The use of these third party services may result in the collection and sharing of information about you by these third party services.
6. Payment Data
Our online store is hosted on Stripe 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 Stripe’s data storage, databases and the general Stripe application. They store your data on a secure server behind a firewall.
If you choose a direct payment gateway to complete your purchase, then Stripe 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.

8. How We Keep Your Information Secure
We use reasonable measures to protect user information against unauthorized or unlawful access or processing, and against accidental loss, destruction, or damage. Even though we make reasonable efforts to protect information in our custody, no data storage or transmission over the Internet and no security system is fully secure. Thus, we cannot guarantee the security of any information we may have collected or received from you or transmitted to you.
When our legitimate interest for retaining your personal information ceases to exist, we will delete your information. To the extent residual information remains within our databases, back‐ups or other records and we are unable to anonymize it we will isolate such information from further processing until deletion is possible.
10. Children’s Information
We do not knowingly collect any personal information from children under 16. If we become aware that an individual under 16 is submitting information, we will delete the information as soon as possible from our database.
