Section 4: Shopify
Our store is hosted on Shopify Inc whose online e-commerce platform enables us to sell our products and services to you.
Shopify stores your data on a secure server behind their firewall.
Our direct payment gateway stores your credit card data by encrypting it using the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI-DSS). PCI Security Standards Council is a joint effort of brands like Visa, Mastercard, American Express and Discover. PCI-DSS standards and requirements help ensure secure handling of credit card information by our store and its service providers.

Section 5: Third-Party Services
In general, our third-party Apps and service providers collect and use your information only to the extent necessary for them to perform the services they offer.
However, certain third-party service providers, such as payment gateways and other payment transaction processors, also have their own privacy policies in respect to the information we are required to provide them for your purchase-related transactions.
For these providers, we recommend that you read their privacy policies to understand how they treat your personal information. In particular, do note that certain providers may be located in in a jurisdiction different from either yours or ours. So, if you choose to proceed with a transaction that involves the services of a third-party service provider, your information may become subject to the jurisdiction of that country. 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 external links on our store, they will direct you away from us to third-party sites which have their own privacy policies which you may want to read.
Our store uses Google Analytics to help us learn about who visits our site and what pages he/she is viewing.
Section 6: Security
To protect your personal information, we take reasonable precautions and follow industry best practices to ensure 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.
