How long your data is retained
For users that register on the website, only the personal information they provide in their user profile is stored. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.
While you visit the site, the following is tracked:
- Products you’ve viewed: this is used to, for example, show you products you’ve recently viewed
- Location, IP address and browser type: used for purposes like estimating taxes and shipping
- Shipping address: you’ll be asked to enter this to, for instance, estimate shipping before you place an order, and send you the order!
When you purchase from the site, you’ll be asked to provide information including your name, billing address, shipping address, email address, phone number, credit card/payment details and optional account information like username and password. This information is used for purposes, such as, to:
- Send you information about your account and order
- Respond to your requests, including refunds and complaints
- Process payments and prevent fraud
- Set up your account for the store
- Comply with any legal obligations we have, such as calculating taxes
- Improve store offerings
- Send you marketing messages, if you choose to receive them
If you create an account, your name, address, email and phone number will be stored, which will be used to populate the checkout for future orders.
Information about you is generally stored for as long as the information is needed for the purposes for which it is collected and used, and it is no longer legally required to be kept. For example, store order information is stored for 3 years for tax and accounting purposes. This includes your name, email address and billing and shipping addresses.
Information is shared with third parties who help provide orders and store services to you. Payments are accepted through PayPal and Stripe. When processing payments, some of your data will be passed to PayPal or Stripe, including information required to process or support the payment, such as the purchase total and billing information.
What rights you have over your data
If you have an account on this site, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data held about you, including any data you have provided. You can also request that any data held about you is erased. This does not include any data required for administrative, legal, or security purposes.
