To fulfill and deliver any purchase you make on our Website purpose for which you provide it. To carry out our obligations and enforce our rights arising from any contracts entered into between you and us, including for billing and collection.

For any other purpose with your consent.

 

We will keep the information collected from you for as long as necessary to fulfill the purposes of this Privacy Policy.

 

Disclosure of Your Information

We may disclose aggregated information about our users that does not identify any individual without restriction.

 

We may disclose personal information that we collect or you provide as described in this Privacy Policy:

To contractors, service providers and other third parties we use to host our Website and data, to process orders or to otherwise support our business and who are bound by contractual obligations to keep personal information confidential and use it only for the purposes for which we disclose it to them. This includes, for example, the third party payment processor Stripe, which we use to process credit card payments on the Website. To a buyer or other successor in the event of a merger, divestiture, restructuring, reorganization, dissolution or other sale or transfer of some or all of the company’s assets, whether as a going concern or as part of bankruptcy, liquidation or similar proceeding, in which personal information held by the company about our Website users is among the assets transferred.

We may also disclose your personal information:

To enforce or apply our terms of use or terms of sale and other agreements, including for billing and collection purposes. If we believe disclosure is necessary or appropriate to protect the rights, property, or safety of the company, our customers, or others. This includes exchanging information with other companies and organizations for the purposes of fraud protection and credit risk reduction.

 

California Privacy Rights; Do Not Track Signals

We will not collect your information about your online activities over time and across different websites.  This Website therefore does not respond to Do Not Track (DNT) signals.

 

California Civil Code Section § 1798.83 permits users of our Website that are California residents to request certain information regarding our disclosure of personal information to third parties for their direct marketing purposes. To make such a request, please contact us using the information below.

 

Data Security

We make sure that we have the appropriate security measures in place to protect your information, and that any third parties we may use to process your information also use appropriate security measures to protect your data.  All personal information you provide to us is stored on our secure servers behind firewalls.  If you are located in the European Union, please note that your information may be transferred outside of the European Union to the United States, and will be stored and processed securely there.

 

We do not store any Financial Information.  However, when processing Financial Information for the purposes of fulfilling an order through our Website, such Financial Information will be encrypted using SSL technology.

 

At this time, the Company utilizes the third party payment processor Stripe (https://stripe.com/) to process all Financial Information.  Stripe has been audited by a PCI-certified auditor, and is certified to PCI Service Provider Level 1. This is the most stringent level of certification available.  All card numbers are encrypted on disk with AES-256. Decryption keys are stored on separate machines. None of Stripe's internal servers and daemons are able to obtain plaintext card numbers; instead, they can just request that cards be sent to a service provider on a static whitelist. Stripe's infrastructure for storing, decrypting, and transmitting card numbers runs in separate hosting infrastructure, and does not share any credentials with Stripe's primary services (API, website, etc.).

 

The safety and security of your information also depends on you. We urge you to be careful about entering information on public computers or on public networks.

 

Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure. Although we do our best to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee the security of your personal information transmitted to or stored on our Website.
