S1 – INFORMATION
How I use your information
As part of the purchasing and selling process when you purchase something from my store, I gather the personal data you provide to me, such as your name, address, and email address.
I also automatically acquire your computer’s internet protocol (IP) address when you visit my store, which gives me knowledge about your operating system and browser.
If appropriate, I may market to you via email by informing you of new products, store changes, and other things with your consent.
S2 – CONSENT
How I get your consent
Your permission to my collection and use of your personal information for that specific purpose alone is implied when you give me your personal information to complete a transaction, validate your credit card, fill out an order, schedule a delivery, or return a purchase.
If I need your personal information for a secondary purpose—such as marketing—I will either formally request your express approval or give you the choice to decline.
How to withdraw your consent
You can withdraw your consent for me to contact you, for the continued collecting, use, or sharing of your information, at any time by contacting me at the following address: firstname.lastname@example.org.
S3 – DISCLOSURE
If I am required to do so by law or if you break my Terms of Service, I may expose your personal data.
S4 – DATA & DATABASES
My store is hosted on DreamHost, built with WordPress and powered by Woocommerce. They provide us with the online platforms that allows me to sell my products and services to you.
Your data is stored through my data storage and databases. I store your data on a secure server behind a firewall.
I use Square to process credit cards payments. If you choose a direct payment gateway to complete your purchase, then Square stores your credit card data. It is encrypted.
The technical security controls and processes that make up Square’s security program are audited by external third parties.
All of theses benefits requirements help ensure the secure handling of credit card information by my store and its service providers.
S5 – THIRD-PARTY SERVICES
In general, the third-party service providers I work with will only gather, use, and disclose your information as much as is required to carry out the services I’ve hired them to do.
However, some third-party service providers, such as payment gateways and other payment transaction processors, have their own privacy policies with regard to the data I must give them for transactions involving your purchases.
I advise you to read the privacy policies for these service providers so you are aware of how your personal information will be handled by them.
Keep in mind that certain providers can be based in or have facilities in a different jurisdiction than either you or I. Your information may so become governed by the laws of the jurisdiction(s) in which the third-party service provider or its facilities are situated if you decide to move forward with a transaction that involves their services.
Your personal information used to complete the transaction, for instance, may be susceptible to disclosure under US law, such as the Patriot Act, if you are situated in Canada and the transaction is completed by a payment gateway in the US.
Links on my store may take you away from my website when you click on them. I recommend reading the privacy policies of other websites because I cannot be held liable for their data collection practises.
S6 – SECURITY
I follow industry best practises and take reasonable efforts to prevent your personal information from being improperly lost, misused, accessed, disclosed, altered, or deleted.
If you provide your credit card details, they will be stored securely by Square.
