The information collected may include your name, e-mail, address, phone number, billing information, records and copies of your correspondence such as e-mail messages together with your e-mail address and our responses, your contributions to public areas of the Website, and details of purchase transactions you carry out through the Website (collectively, “personal information”).
When you buy something on this website, we collect personal information from you to fulfill the order. We may collect information like your:
- Billing and shipping address

As a merchant Website hosted by Shopify, we share this information with Shopify, our online store hosting provider, so that they can provide website services to us.
We use information you provide to us to deliver the requested contents and products, to improve our overall performance, and to provide you with offers, promotions, new products and other information and updates.
Please keep in mind that whenever you voluntarily make your personal information available for viewing by third parties online – for example on message boards, web logs, through email, or in chat areas – that information can be seen, collected and used by others besides us. We cannot be responsible for any unauthorized third-party use of such information.
If you are located in the European Economic Area (EEA), this means we are regulated under the General Data Protection Regulation which applies across the European Union (including in the United Kingdom) and we are responsible as data controller of that personal information for the purposes of those laws.
Information We Collect Through Automatic Data Collection Technology. As you navigate through the Website, the Website uses automatic data collection technologies to collect certain information about your equipment, browsing actions, and patterns. Because this Website is hosted by Shopify, Shopify collects this when you visit this Website. This information will generally include information about your browser, network and device, web pages you visited prior to coming to this Website and your IP address. Shopify needs the data to run this Website, and to protect and improve its platform and services.
The information collected automatically is used for statistical data and will not include personal information. Shopify analyzes the data in a de-personalized form to improve our Website and the ability of our Website to provide its services. To the extent that you voluntarily provide personal information to us, our systems will associate the automatically collected information with your personal information.
As a merchant on Shopify, Shopify places cookies on our Website necessary for the functioning of our online store. A cookie is a very small text document, which often includes an anonymous unique identifier. When you visit a website, that website’s computer asks your computer for permission to store this file in a part of your hard drive specifically designated for cookies. Each website can send its own cookie to your browser if your browser’s preferences allow it, but (to protect your privacy) your browser only permits a website to access the cookies it has already sent to you, not the cookies sent to you by other websites.
If your browser sends a "Do Not Track" signal, as a merchant on Shopify, our Website will reject “Do Not Track” signals, and as such there will be no difference in how we collect or use data, even if you set your web browser to have such settings.
We do not control these third parties' tracking technologies or how they may be used. If you have any questions about an advertisement or other targeted content, you should contact the responsible provider directly.
If you choose to correspond with us through email, we may retain the content of your email messages together with your email address and our responses. We provide the same protections for these electronic communications that we employ in the maintenance of information received online, mail, and telephone. This also applies when you register for our Website, sign up through any of our forms using your email address or make a purchase on this Website. For further information see the email policies below.
We are committed to keeping your email address confidential. We do not sell, rent, or lease our subscription lists to third parties, and will not disclose your email address to any third parties except as allowed in the section titled Disclosure of Your Information.
We will maintain the information you send via email in accordance with applicable federal law.
In compliance with the CAN-SPAM Act, all emails sent from the Company will clearly state who the email is from and provide clear information on how to contact the sender. In addition, all email messages will also contain concise information on how to remove yourself from our mailing list so that you receive no further email communication from us.
How We Use the Information That You Provide to Us
We use information that we collect about you or that you provide to us, including any personal information, to send you emails when you sign up for our newsletter or request information from us, to respond to comments and questions and to provide support to users and customers of the Website, to provide you with information about our products and services, to provide you with information out products you have purchased, to notify you about changes to our Website, to provide you with information, products or services you request from us, to fulfill orders and deliver services and products and complete customer transactions, to process payments, to allow you to participate in interactive features on our Website, to oversee contests and promotions, to carry out our obligations and enforce our rights arising from any contracts entered into between you and us, including for billing and collection, in any other way we may describe when you provide the information, to provide us with an overview of how people are accessing and using this Website, to understand and analyze usage trends and preferences of our visitors and users so that we can improve our service and develop new products, services, features and functionalities and improve website performance and customer service.
From time-to-time, we may use the information you provide to us to make you offers to purchase products and services provided by third parties in exchange for a commission to be paid to us by such third parties. Should you opt to take part in such promotions, the third parties will receive your information.
Disclosure Of Your Information
As a general rule, we do not sell, rent, lease or otherwise transfer any information collected whether automatically or through your voluntary action.
We may disclose your personal information to our subsidiaries, affiliates, and service providers, including Shopify, for the purpose of providing our Services to you.
We may disclose your personal information to a third party, including a lawyer or collection agency, when necessary to enforce our Terms of Service or any other agreement between you and the Company.
We may provide your information to any successor in interest in the event of a merger, divestiture, restructuring, reorganization, dissolution, or other sale or transfer of some or all of the Company’s asserts and/or business.
We may disclose information when legally compelled to do so, in other words, when we, in good faith, believe that the law requires it or for the protection of our legal rights or when compelled by a court or other governmental entity to do so.
We are the ‘data controller” of any personal information collected through the Website and determine the purposes for which and the manner in which any personal information is used and processed. However, we pay for the services of third party ‘data processors’ who hold and/or process personal information of users of the Website on our behalf. As a Website hosted by Shopify, Shopify is a data processor. Additionally, we may have multiple data processors at any given time, including, but not limited to:
- our email marketing and email management software service provider
- our website hosting service provider (Shopify)
- our platform service provider (Shopify)
- various payment merchants
- Other social media sites
This data sharing them to deliver the goods you ordered directly to you, process your payments and provide you with better service. Note that, while the above entities act as data processors on our behalf, some or all of them may also act as data controllers in their own rights. For example, our payment merchants decide which information they need from our customers in order to process their payments correctly. The payment merchants or other data processing entities may also exercise control over the other purposes that a customer's data is used for, for example direct marketing of their products and services, which is not within our control. The payment merchants or other data processing entities also have legal requirements of their own to meet, such as regulations relating to the use and retention of payment card data or other personal data. And, finally, each data processor has its own terms and conditions and privacy policies that apply directly to our website users.
Use and Transfer of Your Information Out of the European Economic Area (EEA)
This Website is operated in the United States and third parties with whom we might share your personal information as explained above are also located in the United States and Canada, as Shopify is headquartered in Ottawa, Ontario. If you are located in the EEA or elsewhere outside of the United States and Canada, please be aware that any information you provide will be transferred to the United States and Canada. By using this Website, participating in any of its services and/or providing your information, you consent to this transfer.
These countries do not have the same data protection laws as the United Kingdom and EEA. While the European Commission has not given a formal decision that Canada or the United States provide an adequate level of data protection similar to those which apply in the United Kingdom and EEA, any transfer of your personal information will be subject to the derogation in Article 49 permitting non-repetitive transfers that concern only a limited number of data subjects, as permitted by Article 49 of the General Data Protection Regulation that is designed to help safeguard your privacy rights and give you remedies in the unlikely event of a misuse of your personal information.
How We Protect Your Information and Secure Information Transmissions
We employ commercially reasonable methods to ensure the security of the information you provide to us and the information we collect automatically. This includes using standard security protocols and working only with reputable third-party vendors. If you provide us with your credit card information, the information transmitted securely via a secure medium known as Secure Sockets Layer, or SSL.
Shopify also works hard to ensure the security and integrity of its platform. Shopify has independent auditors assess the security of Shopify data storage and systems that process financial information. However, we all know that no method of transmission over the Internet, and method of electronic storage, can be 100% secure. This means that neither we nor Shopify cannot guarantee the absolute security of your personal information. You can find more information about Shopify’s security measures at https://www.shopify.com/security.
Email is not recognized as a secure medium of communication. For this reason, we request that you do not send private information to us by email.
We abide by Facebook’s Data Use Restrictions.
- Any ad data collected, received or derived from our Facebook ad (“Facebook advertising data”) is only shared with someone acting on our behalf, such as our service provider. We are responsible for ensuring that our service providers protect any Facebook advertising data or any other information obtained from us, limit our use of all of that information, and keep it confidential and secure.
- We do not use Facebook advertising data for any purpose (including retargeting, commingling data across multiple advertisers’ campaigns, or allowing piggybacking or redirecting with tags), except on an aggregate and anonymous basis (unless authorized by Facebook) and only to assess the performance and effectiveness of our Facebook advertising campaigns.
- We do not use Facebook advertising data, including the targeting criteria for a Facebook ad, to build, append to, edit, influence, or augment user profiles, including profiles associated with any mobile device identifier or other unique identifier that identifies any particular user, browser, computer or device.
- We do not transfer any Facebook advertising data (including anonymous, aggregate, or derived data) to any ad network, ad exchange, data broker or other advertising or monetization related service.
