Please read this policy carefully to understand our policies and practices regarding your information and how we will treat it. If you do not agree with our policies and practices, your choice is not to use our Website. By accessing or using this Website, you agree to this privacy policy. This policy may change from time to time. Your continued use of this Website after we make changes is deemed to be acceptance of those changes, so please check the policy periodically for updates.

2.  SHOPIFY

Our store is hosted on Shopify Inc. They provide us with the online e­commerce 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. They store your data on a secure server behind a firewall.

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 (PCI­DSS). 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 PCI­DSS as managed by the PCI Security Standards Council, which is a joint effort of brands like Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Discover.

PCI­DSS requirements help ensure the secure handling of credit card information by our store and its service providers.

For more insight, you may also want to read Shopify’s Terms of Use or Privacy Statement.

Information You Provide to Us. The information we collect on or through our Website may include:

Information We Collect Automatically.  Our store uses Google Analytics to help us learn about who visits our site and what pages are being looked at.  We also use the following cookies, which we may at our sole discretion change from time to time:

_session_id.  This is a unique token that is sessional and allows Shopify to store information about your session (referrer, landing page, etc).

_shopify_visit.  This is persistent for 30 minutes from the last visit, and is used by our website provider’s internal stats tracker to record the number of visits.

_shopify_uniq.  This expires midnight (relative to the visitor) of the next day, and counts the number of visits to a store by a single customer.

cart.  This is a unique token that is persistent for 2 weeks; it stores information about the contents of your cart.

_secure_session_id.  This is a unique token that is sessional.

storefront_digest.  This is used to determine if the current visitor has access.

PREF.  This is persistent for a very short period, and is set by Google and tracks who visits the store and from where.

5.  Third Party Services

In general, the third­party providers used by us will only collect, use and disclose your information to the extent necessary to allow them to perform the services they provide to us. However, certain third­party service providers, such as payment gateways and other payment transaction processors, have their own privacy policies in respect to the information we are required to provide to them for your purchase­related transactions.

For these providers, we recommend that you read their privacy policies so you can understand the manner in which your personal information will be handled by these providers.

In particular, remember that certain providers may be located in or have facilities that are located a different jurisdiction than either you or us. So if you elect to proceed with a transaction that involves the services of a third­party service provider, then your information may become subject to the laws of the jurisdiction(s) in which that service provider or its facilities are located. As an example, if you are located in Canada and your transaction is processed by a payment gateway located in the United States, then your personal information used in completing that transaction may be subject to disclosure under United States legislation, including the Patriot Act.

Once you leave our store’s website or are redirected to a third­party website or application, you are no longer governed by this Privacy Policy or our website’s Terms of Use.
