WHAT PERSONAL INFORMATION DO WE COLLECT FROM YOU?
When you browse our store, we store information about:
- Products you’ve viewed. We use this information to show you products you’ve recently viewed, similar products, and make suggestions. It makes shopping more fun!
- Your location, IP address and browser type. We use this information to estimate taxes and shipping.
- Shipping address. We use this information estimate shipping before you place an order and send you the order. No one likes surprise shipping costs.
- Your shopping cart contents. We store a copy of your cart in our database for 60 days to improve your shopping experience and remind you of your cart’s contents. We like to window shop online, too.
If you purchase from us, we’ll ask you to provide information including your name, billing address, shipping address, email address, phone number, credit card/payment details and account information like username and password. We use this information to:
- Send you information about your account and orderRespond to your requests, including refunds and complaints
- Process payments and prevent fraud
- Set up your account for our storeComply with any legal obligations we have, such as calculating taxes
- Improve our store offerings
- Send you marketing messages if you choose to receive them
If you create an account, we will store your name, address, email and phone number, which will be used to populate the checkout for future orders. You can edit or change this information anytime you want in your account dashboard.
We generally store information about you for as long as we need the information for the purposes for which we collect and use it, and we are not legally required to continue to keep it. For example, we will store order information for four years for tax and accounting purposes. This includes your name, email address. billing and shipping addresses. We’ll delete it sooner if you want us to, just ask.
We will also store product reviews if you choose to leave them. We really love when people leave reviews, it helps others shop for their needs. So, thank you, if you choose to chime in!
If you opt-in to receive our emails, we may use your personal information to provide you with product updates or marketing communications that we believe may be of interest to you. We try to stick to a once-a-month email schedule, but it doesn’t always work out that way.
If you do not want to receive emails from us after subscribing, you may opt-out by clicking on the unsubscribe link at the bottom of our emails. And it won’t hurt my feelings, promise.
We store your communication preferences when you sign up. It helps us make sure we email you exactly how you like to be emailed. This data is retained until you request the removal of your data.
We keep a log of some of the communication that we have with you. We keep these logs to improve our marketing and communication with you and other customers. For example, if we send an email everyone hates, we know not to do that again. These logs are retained until you request removal of your data.
Like most websites around, we collect non-identifying information, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. We collect this information to better understand how you use our website, so we can keep improving it.
If you submit contact forms on our website, we collect the data shown in the contact form as well as your IP address and browser user agent string to help with spam detection.
After you submit a contact form, the information is emailed to us at firstname.lastname@example.org so we can read and respond to your message. That’s why you want to send it, right? The submitted information is kept securely in our database and in our email service for two years. After that, it’s deleted.
Comments & Forum Posts
If you leave comments on our website or participate in our forums, we collect the data shown in the form as well as your IP address and browser user agent string to help with spam detection. No one likes spam, not even us.
HOW LONG DO WE STORE DATA?
If you leave a comment, the comment and its data are retained indefinitely unless requested to be removed.
If you have an account, you can see, edit, or delete your personal information at any time (except you cannot change your username) on your account dashboard.
If you have an account and do not log in to this site, we remove your account and all relevant information after two years of inactivity. We figure, after two years, you’ve probably moved on, and deleting your data makes room for new people. (Plus, we don’t really need it anymore.)
If you begin to place an order and choose to abandon the checkout process, cancel the order, or fail to complete the order, your order will be deleted after thirty days. I love you, but we don’t need to keep that information.
If you place an order and fully complete it, we delete the order information after four years. We keep it for so long to make sure you can access your purchase history, but also, so we can not have the tax man down our throats.
If you sign up for marketing emails and do not want to receive them any longer, you may opt-out by clicking on the unsubscribe link at the bottom of our emails. We do not delete the information collected from email subscribers unless requested. Otherwise, we’d have a lot of angry emails from people asking why they aren’t receiving that thing they signed up for.
What rights you have over your data?
You can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes. Just drop us a line to put in a request.
Where we store your data?
For the most part, we keep your data right where you leave it. However, we do send comments through an automated spam detection service called Akismet. Your user information, such as account data and order information, is stored in our web host’s secure database. And if you are an email subscriber, your information is stored in our email service’s secure database. Please see the Third Party Disclosure for more information.
HOW DO WE PROTECT YOUR INFO?
Our website is scanned on a regular basis for security holes and known vulnerabilities in order to make your visit to our site as safe as possible. Unlike a lot of other folks, I stay up-to-date on WordPress security and geek out about it quite a bit.
Your personal information is contained behind secured networks and is only accessible by a limited number of people who have special access rights to such systems, and are required to keep the information confidential. When you register for an account on our website, you are responsible for maintaining your account’s security by using a strong password.
We implement a variety of security measures when a user places an order, enters, submits, or accesses their information to maintain the safety of your personal information. All transactions are protected by SSL encryption technology, processed through a gateway provider, and are not stored or processed on our servers. I don’t want your sensitive data on my shoulders. We trust Paypal and Shopify to do the dirty work. See our Third Party Disclosure for more information.
If you are not in the United States, you should know that your personal information will be processed in the United States.
In the ridiculously low-chance but unfortunate event of a data breach, we will contact you and the relevant authorities within 72 hours.
