When we talk about “Personal Information” in this Privacy Policy, we are talking both about Device Information and Order Information.

Data security

This store is hosted on Shopify, Inc. They provide me with the online e-commerce platform that allows me to sell my 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.

To protect your Personal Information, I take reasonable precautions and follow industry best practices to make sure it is not inappropriately lost, misused, accessed, disclosed, altered or destroyed.

If you choose a direct payment gateway to complete your purchase (e.g., standard “Checkout” credit card payment), then Shopify stores your credit card data to process your order. It is encrypted through the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI-DSS). 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 the store and its service providers.

Handmade In Conifer’s Owner/Site-Administrator does not have access to your credit card number at any point.
