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 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.

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 general, the third-party 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 third-party 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 purchase-related 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 third-party 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 third-party
website or application, you are no longer governed by this Privacy
Policy or our website’s Terms of Service.
