SECTION 4 – DISCLOSURE
We do not sell, trade, rent, or license your personal information to others. We may choose to do so in the future, but you can opt out of such disclosures by sending us an e-mail message to email@example.com. (If you use multiple e-mail addresses to shop with us, please e-mail us from each e-mail address.) Also, we may provide aggregate statistics about our customers, sales, traffic patterns, and related information to reputable third-parties, but these statistics will not include any personally identifying information. However, we may disclose your personal information if we are required by law to do so or if you violate our Terms of Service.
SECTION 5 – HOSTING
Our ecommerce store is hosted by HostGator.com LLC. Our website utilizes WooCommerce, a popular WordPress e-commerce plugin, which allows us to sell our products and services to you.
Your customer data is stored on HostGator.com databases. They store your data on a secure server behind an extensive custom firewall. The datacenters provided by HostGator are highly secure facilities with restricted access.
If you choose to make a purchase on our website, then HostGator stores your credit card data temporarily. 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 6 – 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 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.
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.
When you click on links on our store, they may direct you away from our site. We are not responsible for the privacy practices of other sites and encourage you to read their privacy statements.
Our store may use Google Analytics to help us learn about who visits our site and what pages are being looked at.
SECTION 7 – 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.
If you provide us with your credit card information, the 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.
