Privacy Policy

INTRODUCTION

This Privacy Policy explains what information we collect from you and what we do with it. Please read it carefully before submitting personal information to us. Do not submit personal information to us unless you agree with the the way we collect and process personal data about you.

SHOPIFY

Our store is hosted on Shopify Inc. They provide us with the online e-commerce platform that allows us to sell our products and services to you.

Your data is stored through Shopify’s data storage, databases and the general Shopify application. They store your data on a secure server behind a firewall. The data that we collect from you may be transferred to, and stored at, a destination outside the European Economic Area ("EEA"). By submitting your personal data, you agree to this transfer, storing or processing. We will take all steps reasonably necessary to ensure that your data is treated securely and in accordance with this privacy policy.

Payment:
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.

Other payment gateways (eg PayPal) have their own privacy policy with which you should familiarise yourself.


INFORMATION WE MAY COLLECT ABOUT YOU

If you make a purchase our e-commerce platform (Shopify) will retain information you provide including (where supplied) your name, address, location, telephone number, email address. We do not retain credit card information.

If you contact us through this website, or directly via email, we retain the information you supply for the purposes of answering your queries and assisting you to use our software.

We do not collect, nor do we have access to any information about your tax return or any other data entered into our software. Any information entered into our software remains on your computer.
