Your decision to disclose this data is entirely voluntary.  You are under no obligation to provide this information, but your refusal may prevent you from accessing certain benefits from our website or from making purchases.

Financial Data:  Financial data is data that is related to your payment method, such as credit card or bank transfer details. We collect financial data in order to allow you to purchase, order, return or exchange products or services from our website and any related mobile apps. We store limited financial data.  Most financial data is transferred to our payment processor, PayPal, and you should review these processors’ Privacy Policy to determine how they use, disclose and protect your financial data.

Social Networking Data:  We may access personal information from social networking sites and apps, including Facebook, Instagram, Linkedin, Twitter or other social networking sites or apps not named specifically here, which may include your name, your social network username, location, email address, age, gender, profile picture and any other public information.  If you do not want us to access this information, please go to the specific social networking site and change your privacy settings.

Other data: On occasion, you may give us additional data in order to enter into a contest or giveaway or to participate in a survey. You will be prompted for this information and it will be clear that you are offering this kind of information in exchange for an entry into such a contest or giveaway.

GROUNDS FOR USING AND PROCESSING YOUR DATA

The information we collect and store is used primarily to allow us to offer goods and services for sale.  In addition, [your company] may collect, use and process your information based on the following grounds:

Legitimate Business Interests: We may use and process your data for our legitimate business interests, which include, among other things, communicating with you,  improving our goods or services, improving our website, and providing you with the information or products that you have requested.

Performance of a Contract:  We may use and process your information to enter into a contract with you and to perform our contractual obligations to you.

WHY WE DISCLOSE YOUR INFORMATION

We may share your information with third parties in certain situations.   In particular, we may share your data with third party processors as needed to serve our legitimate business interests, which include administration of our website, administration of your account, entering into contracts with you, communicating with you, taking orders for goods or services, delivering our goods and services, identifying trends, protecting the security of our company and website, and marketing additional goods and services to you.  The legal basis for our disclosure of your data is both your Consent to this Privacy Policy and our own right to protect and promote our legitimate business interests.

The following are specific reasons why we may share your information.

Third Party Processing:  We may disclose your information to third parties who assist us with various tasks, including payment processing, hosting services, email delivery, communications and customer service. We may not always disclose these third party processors if not required by law. We do not authorise them to use or disclose your personal information except in connection with providing our company with their services.

To Protect Our Company: We may use your information to protect our company, including to investigate and remedy any violations of our rights or policies. We may also disclose your information as reasonably necessary to acquire and maintain insurance coverage, manage risks, obtain financial or legal advice, or to exercise or defend against legal claims.

Online postings: When you post online, your posts may be viewed by others, and we may distribute your comments outside the website.

WEBSITE ANALYTICS

We may partner with third party analytic companies, including MAILCHIMP ANALYTICS, GOOGLE ANALYTICS, SHOPIFY ANALYTICS. The analytic companies may use cookies or other tracking technologies to analyse visitors’ use of our website or mobile app to determine the popularity of the content, and better understand online activity. We do not transfer personal information to these third parties. However, in order to access our website, you must consent to the collection and use of your information by these third party analytic companies.  You should review their Privacy Policy and contact them directly if you have questions.

Google Analytics: You can opt-out of having your activity on our website made available to Google Analytics by installing the Google Analytics opt-out browser add on. This add-on prevents Google Analytics from retrieving information about your visits to our website.

Facebook:  You can opt-out of Facebook’s interest-based ads.

PROCESSING YOUR INFORMATION

For the most part, we do not process your information in-house, but give it to third party processors for processing. For example, when PayPal takes your payment information, they are a third party processor. They process your payment and remit the funds to us. So in many instances, it will be necessary for us to transmit your information to a third party processor, as we do not have the capability to perform these functions. More detail on third party processing is detailed below.

SECURITY OF YOUR INFORMATION

We take all reasonable steps to protect your personal data and keep your information secure. We use recognised online secure payment systems and implement generally accepted standards of security to protect against personal data loss or misuse.  However, no security measure is foolproof, and no method of data transmission can be guaranteed against interception or misuse.  We cannot guarantee complete security of any information you transmit to us.

By consent to this Privacy Policy, you acknowledge that your personal data may be available, via the internet, around the world. We cannot prevent the use or misuse of your data by other parties.

We will notify you of promptly any known breach of our security systems or your data which might expose you to serious risk.
