When you buy something in our store as a part of the buying and selling process, we collect the personal information which you provide, such as your name, address and e-mail address. When you browse at our store, we automatically get your computer's Internet Protocol (IP) address to send us information that tells us more about your browser and operating system.
Email marketing (if applicable): With your permission, we can send you emails through our shop, new products, and other updates.


How do you get my consent?

If you provide us with personal information to process a transaction, verify your credit card, place an order, process a delivery, or return a purchase, you agree that we collect and use it only for that specific reason.

If we ask you for your personal information for a secondary reason, such as marketing, we will either ask you for your explicit consent or give you the opportunity to say no.

We may disclose your personal information if required by law or if you violate our Terms of Use.


Our payments are handled by secure payment providers. We never save your credit card information. It is encrypted by the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI-DSS). Your purchase transaction data is only stored until your purchase transaction is completed. After that, your purchase transaction information will be deleted.

All direct payment gateways comply with PCI-DSS standards, which are managed by the PCI Security Standards Council. This is a joint effort by brands such as Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Discover.

PCI DSS requirements help ensure the safe handling of credit card information by our business and service providers.


In general, the third-party vendors we use and will only collect or disclose your information to the extent necessary to perform the services they provide to us.

However, certain third-party providers, such as payment gateways and other payment processors, have their own privacy policies regarding the information we need to provide them for your purchase-related transactions.

We encourage these providers to read their privacy policy so that you understand how your personal information is handled by these providers.

In particular, note that certain providers may be in a different jurisdiction than you or we or have facilities. So, if you choose a transaction involving a third-party service, your information may be subject to the laws of the jurisdiction in which that service provider or its facilities reside.

For example, if you are located in Canada and your transaction is processed by a US-based payment gateway, your personal information used to complete this transaction may be subject to US disclosure, including the Patriot Act.
