You have certain rights with respect to your Personal Data as set forth below. Please note that, in some circumstances, we may not be able to fully comply with your requests, or we may request that you provide us with additional information related to your request, which may be Personal Data, for example, if we need to verify your identity or nature of your request. In such situations, however, we will still respond to inform you of our decision.
To make any of the following requests, contact us using the contact details referenced in the "Contact Us" section of this policy.
Access: you can request more information about the personal data we have about you. You can also request a copy of the Personal Data.

However, please note that if you exercise this right, you may need to provide express consent on a case-by-case basis for the use or disclosure of some of your Personal Information, if such use or disclosure is necessary to allow you to use some or all of our products.
The time we retain your personal data depends on the type of data and the purpose for which we process the data.
We may disclose your personal information if the law requires us to do so or if you violate our Terms of Service. In addition, if our site is acquired or merged with another company, your information can be transferred to the new owners so they can continue to sell and support our products and services.
IMPORTANT: we do not sell, rent or disclose your personal information to third parties, including, among others, advertisers, strategic partners or suppliers. Again, we take your privacy very seriously.
Our shopping cart solution is organized and managed by Shopify. They provide us with the online e-commerce platform that allows us to sell our products and services.
Your data is stored through Shopify data storage, databases and the general Shopify application. They store their data on a secure server behind a firewall.
If you choose a direct payment gateway to complete your purchase, then Shopify stores your credit card information. It is encrypted using the data security standard of the payment card industry (PCI-DSS). Your purchase transaction data is stored only the time necessary to complete your purchase transaction. After it is completed, the information of your purchase transaction will be deleted.
All direct payment gateways adhere to the standards established by PCI-DSS as administered by the PCI Security Standards Council, which is a joint effort of brands such as Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Discover.
The PCI-DSS requirements help ensure the safe handling of credit card information by our store and its service providers.
In general, third-party providers that we use will only collect, use and disclose your information to the extent necessary to enable them to perform the services they provide.
However, certain third-party service providers, such as payment gateways, messaging services, and other payment transaction processors, have their own privacy policies with respect to the information we must provide you for your transactions related to the purchase.
For these providers, we recommend that you read their privacy policies so you can understand how these providers will handle your personal information.
In particular, remember that certain providers may be located or have facilities located in jurisdictions other than you or us. Therefore, if you decide to proceed with a transaction that involves the services of an external service provider, then your information may be subject to the laws of the jurisdictions in which that service provider or its facilities are located.
For example, if you are in Canada and your transaction is processed by a payment gateway located in the United States, your personal information used to complete that transaction may be subject to disclosure under United States law, including the Patriot Act.
Links: when you click on links on our website, you can take them away from our site. We are not responsible for the privacy practices of other sites and encourage you to read their privacy statements.
To protect your personal information, we take reasonable precautions and follow industry best practices to ensure that you do not miss, misuse, access, reveal, alter or destroy inappropriately.
If you provide us with your credit card information, the information is encrypted using Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology and stored with AES-256 encryption. Although no method of transmission over the Internet or electronic storage is 100% secure, we comply with all PCI-DSS requirements and implement additional standards generally accepted in the industry.
