SECTION 8 – Shopify Inc.
Our store online platform is hosted on Shopify Inc (Shopify), an unrelated business entity that provides us with the online e-commerce platform to sell our products and services to you.
Your personal information is stored through Shopify’s data storage, databases, and the general Shopify application. They store your data on a secure server behind a firewall.
If you choose a direct payment gateway to complete your purchase, then Shopify will store your credit card data, which 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, Master Card, American Express and Discover. PCI-DSS requirements help ensure the secure handling of credit card information by our store and its service providers.
SECTION 9 – Third-Party Providers
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 we engage them to perform.
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 respective privacy policies so you can understand the manner in which your personal information will be handled by them.
Certain providers 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 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.

SECTION 10 - Security
To protect your personal information, we take reasonable precautions and follow industry best practices to make sure it is not inappropriately lost, misused, accessed, disclosed, altered, or destroyed.
All credit card information is encrypted using secure socket layer technology (SSL) and stored with a AES-256 encryption. Although no method of transmission over the Internet or electronic storage is 100% secure, we follow all PCI-DSS requirements and implement additional generally accepted industry standards.
Thus, we implement a variety of security measures to ensure the security of your personal information on our systems. User personal information is hidden behind secured networks and is only accessible by a limited number of employees who have special access rights to such systems. We will retain personal information in accordance with the privacy laws and/or other applicable laws. Further, we will destroy or anonymize your personal data as soon as it is reasonable to assume that
