Third-Party Service Providers
We may share your Personal Data with Third-Party Service Providers (“Third-Parties”, “Third-Party Providers”) in order to allow them to perform services on our behalf, including analytics, advertisements, and payments.
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-Parties, 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. We recommend that you read their privacy policies so you can understand the manner in which your Personal Information will be handled by these Third-Parties.
Some Third-Parties may be located in or have facilities that are located in 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 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.
Our Store is powered by Shopify Inc., who provides us with the online e-commerce platform that allows us to sell our products and services to you. 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.
For more insight, you can find Shopify's terms of service here & their privacy statement here.
