How do you get my consent?

SECTION 3 - DISCLOSURE

We may disclose your personal information if we are required by law to do so or if you violate our Terms of Service.

SECTION 4 - SHOPIFY

Our store is hosted on Shopify Inc. They provide 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. They store your data on a secure server behind a firewall.

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.

SECTION 5 - THIRD-PARTY SERVICES

In most cases, the third-party partners we work with only gather, use, and share your information as needed to provide the services they offer to us.

However, some third-party service providers, like payment gateways and payment processors, have their own privacy rules regarding the data we must share for your purchase transactions. To understand how these providers handle your personal information, we suggest you take a look at their privacy policies.

It's important to note that certain providers may be located in different jurisdictions from you or us. So, if you decide to proceed with a transaction involving a third-party provider, your information may be subject to the laws of the place where that provider or its facilities are located. For example, if you're in Canada and your transaction is handled by a U.S.-based payment gateway, your data may be subject to U.S. laws, including the Patriot Act.
