Privacy Policy

PRIVACY STATEMENT

SECTION 1 - WHAT DO WE DO WITH YOUR INFORMATION?

When you purchase something from my store, as part of the buying and selling process I collect the personal information you give me such as your name, address and email address. When you browse my store, I also automatically receive your computer’s internet protocol (IP) address which provides information about your browser and operating system for website performance.

Email marketing (if applicable): With your permission, I may send you emails about my store, new products and other updates.

I will never sell your information. 

SECTION 2 - CONSENT

How do you get my consent? 

When you provide me with personal information to complete a transaction, verify your credit card, place an order, arrange for a delivery or return a purchase, or communicate with me, it’s implied that you consent to collection of that information and using it for that specific reason only. 

If I ask for your personal information for a secondary reason, such as marketing, I will either ask you directly for your expressed consent, or provide you with an opportunity to say no.

When you browse this website, you consent to the use of cookies (see below) to store non-personalized information to improve your shopping experience.

How do I withdraw my consent? 

If after you opt-in you change your mind, you may withdraw your consent for me to contact you, for the continued collection, use or disclosure of your information, at anytime, by contacting me using this form or at Cynthia@HandmadeInConifer.com, or by mailing me at: Handmade In Conifer, 25587 Conifer Rd, Ste 105-125, Conifer, Colorado, 80433.

SECTION 3 - DISCLOSURE

I may disclose your personal information if required by law to do so, or if you violate the Terms of Service.

SECTION 4 - SHOPIFY

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.

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. I never see nor have access to your credit card information.

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. 

For more insight, you may also want to read Shopify’s Terms of Service (https://www.shopify.com/legal/terms) or Privacy Statement (https://www.shopify.com/legal/privacy).

SECTION 5 - THIRD-PARTY SERVICES

In general, the third-party providers used by me will only collect, use and disclose your information to the extent necessary to allow them to perform the services they provide. 

Certain third-party service providers, such as payment gateways, payment transaction processors, social media websites/applications (e.g., Facebook, Pinterest, Twitter, Instagram, etc.) have their own privacy policies in respect to the information required to provide to them for your purchase-related transactions. This site uses Facebook's pixel and Pinterest's tag to track what's related to their websites/applications.

For these providers, it’s recommend that you read their privacy policies so you can understand the manner in which your personal information will be handled by these providers. 

In particular, remember that certain providers may be located in, or have facilities that are located in, a different jurisdiction than either you or me. If you elect to proceed with a transaction that involves the services of a third-party service provider, then your information may become subject to the laws of the jurisdiction(s) in which that service provider or its facilities are located. 

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. 

Once you leave this store’s website or are redirected to a third-party website or application, you are no longer governed by this Privacy Policy or this website’s Terms of Service.

When you click on links in my store, they may direct you away from my site. I am not responsible for the privacy practices of other sites and encourage you to read their privacy statements.

SECTION 6 - SECURITY

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 provide this site with your credit card information, I never see it and do not store it locally. All credit card information is handled by secure third party payment platforms such as Shopify's e-commerce platform, PayPal, Amazon Pay, etc. The information is encrypted using secure socket layer technology (SSL) and AES-256 encryption. Although no method of transmission over the Internet or electronic storage is 100% secure, I and the payment services I use, follow all PCI-DSS requirements and implement additional generally accepted industry standards.
