Our shop is hosted by Shopify Inc. They provide us with the online e-commerce platform that enables us to sell you our services and products.
Your data is stored in Shopify’s data storage system and databases and in the general Shopify application. Your data is kept on a secure server protected by a firewall.
If you make your purchase through a direct payment gateway, then Shopify will store your credit card information. This information is encrypted in accordance with the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI-DSS). Information relating to your purchase transaction is kept as long as necessary to finalize your order. Once your order is finalized, the information relating to the purchase transaction is deleted.
All direct payment gateways must comply with PCI-DSS, which is enforced by the PCI Security Standards Council, a group governed by companies such as Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Discover.
PCI-DSS requirements enable our shop and our service providers to securely process credit card data.

SERVICES PROVIDED BY THIRD PARTIES
In general, the third party suppliers we use will only collect, use and disclose your information to the extent necessary to perform the services they provide to us.
However, some third party service providers, such as payment gateways and other payment transaction processors, have their own privacy policies regarding the information we are required to provide to them for your purchase transactions.
With respect to these providers, we recommend that you read their privacy policies carefully so that you can understand how they will handle your personal information.
It is important to recall that some suppliers may be located or have facilities located in a jurisdiction different from yours or ours. Therefore, if you decide to complete a transaction that requires the services of a third party provider, your information may then be subject to the laws of the jurisdiction in which that provider is located or those of the jurisdiction in which its facilities are located.
For example, if you are located in Canada and your transaction is processed by a payment gateway located in the United States, your personal information that was used to complete the transaction could be disclosed under the laws of the United States, including the USA PATRIOT Act.
