Section 2 - Consent
How do you give us your consent?
When you provide us with personal information to complete a transaction, verify your credit card, place an order, arrange for a delivery, or return a purchase, we assume that you consent to us collecting your information. If we need your personal information for another reason, such as marketing, we will ask you directly, or provide you with the opportunity to opt out.

If you change your mind, you may withdraw your consent for us to contact you, and for the continued collection, use, or disclosure of your information. You can contact us at any time by email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Section 3 - Disclosure
We may disclose your personal information if we are required by law to do so or if you violate our Terms of Service.
Section 4 - WordPress and WooCommerce
Our store is hosted on WordPress and WooCommerce. They provide us with an online e-commerce platform that allows us to sell our products and services. Your data is stored through WordPress data storage, databases, and the general WordPress application. Your data is stored on a secure server behind a firewall.
If you choose a direct payment gateway to complete your purchase, WordPress stores your credit card data encrypted through the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS). Your purchase transaction data is stored only as long as necessary to complete your purchase transaction. After that, your credit card information is deleted.
All direct payment gateways adhere to the standards set by PCI-DSS, 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.
For a clearer view, you may also want to read WordPress’s Terms of Service (https://en.wordpress.com/tos/) and WooCommerce’s Terms and Conditions (https://woocommerce.com/terms-conditions/) or Privacy Statement (https://wordpress.org/about/privacy/) (https://woocommerce.com/privacy-policy/).
Section 5 - Third-Party Services
In general, the third-party providers we use will only collect, use, and disclose your information to the extent necessary to allow them to perform the services they provide to us. However, certain third-party service providers, such as payment gateways and other payment transaction processors, have their privacy policies concerning the information we are required to provide to them for your purchase-related transactions.
For these providers, we recommend that you read their privacy policies so you can understand how your personal information will be handled by them.
In particular, you should be aware that some providers may be located in or have facilities that are in a different jurisdiction than either you or us. So, 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 facilities are located.
When you click on links on our store, they may redirect you to other sites. We are 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, we take reasonable precautions and follow industry best practices to ensure it is not lost, misused, accessed, disclosed, altered, or destroyed. If you provide us with your credit card information, the information is encrypted using secure socket layer technology (SSL) and stored with AES-256 encryption. Although no method of transmission over the Internet or electronic storage is 100% secure, we follow all PCI-DSS requirements and implement additional generally accepted industry standards.
