We recommend that you read the individual companies privacy policies to establish how they use your personal information.
Certain providers may be located in a different country than you or us and your information may, therefore, be held or transferred overseas. Your information may also become subject to the laws of the jurisdiction in which that service provider is located.
Occasionally we may be required by law disclose your information.
If you follow links that take you away from our website, we are not responsible for the privacy policies of other websites you may visit.
We take precautions to protect and safeguard the information we collect from you.
Your data is stored within our WordPress website data storage. Your data is on a secure server with a firewall for added security.
Because we use a PayPal hosted checkout page, your credit card information is sent directly to PayPal and is never captured on our website. 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.
Sometimes when you use our services or website you may be sharing information that’s publicly visible. For example, if you leave a comment on our blog. You are responsible for ensuring the information you share in this way can cause you no harm or loss.
Our employees have access to your personal information to provide a full service to you. We strictly enforce the safeguards put in place by the company with respect to data protection.
