Rights Under the GDPR

If you are an EU citizen covered by the GDPR, you have the right to:

  • access your information

  • change or correct your information

  • erase your information

  • restrict our use of your personal information under certain circumstances

  • obtain your personal information in portable form

  • object to our use of your personal information under certain circumstances

  • not be subject to profiling that has legal effects on you

Our “lawful bases” for collecting personal information include operational bases, contract, consent, and legal requirements.

We do not always need your express consent to use your information. We can use your personal information as needed for our legitimate business interests, so long as those interests do not conflict with your fundamental privacy rights and freedoms. For example, we can use your information to improve our Site(s) including the operation and information security of our Site(s).

A contract creates a basis for using your information. By accepting our Terms of Service, a contract is formed between us and you so we may provide you our services. We can use your personal information as needed to provide our services under that contract.

When you directly give us personal information for a certain purpose or otherwise express your consent (such as by clicking the checkbox next to the consent) we can use that personal information for that purpose. This helps us facilitate your purchases, send you marketing emails, and verify that you are over 16 years of age. You can withdraw your consent at any time. Please contact us if you would like to revoke your prior consent.

We can also use your personal information to comply with legal obligations, protect other users, and as needed for the public good. This may include using your personal information to prevent or otherwise respond to potential fraud, security breaches, or other prohibited activities.

Storage of Information

If you do not have an account, we will store your personal information as long as needed in the interest of system security, fraud protection, or other legitimate interests.

If you have an account, we will store your personal information indefinitely.

Generally, if you delete your account, we will continue to store your personal information for a short time in case of any issues, and then we will delete it in accordance with our standard procedures and applicable law. However, for security purposes, we continue to store your technical data for up to eighteen (18) months after your account deletion.

Contacting You

As needed, we will contact you by email about your account or use of our services. As permitted by law, we may email you to advertise other products or services available from us, or to request that you complete a survey about your use of our services. You may opt out of these communications by clicking the “unsubscribe” link within an email or by contacting us.

We will not provide your personal information to others that want to market to you without your consent.

Tracking your activity

We use tracking technology (like “cookies”) to track some of what you do while using our Site(s). Cookies are files sent to your browser from a website or app and stored on your device. We assign a different cookie to each device that accesses our Site(s). That way, we can provide you with a personalized experience based on your behavior on our Site(s). A cookie can, among other things, identify you electronically and store your user preferences.

We do not offer targeted ads – e.g., ads that are based on your profile or user history.

You are always free to block, delete, or disable tracking technologies if your browser, application, or device so permits. However, if you do so, you may not be able to take advantage of certain site features. For more information on how you can block, delete, or disable these technologies, please review your browser or device settings.

You can also set your browser to refuse cookies by sending out a “Do Not Track” signal when you go to a website. California law requires us to disclose how we handle such a signal. However, since there is no standard for how websites should respond to “Do Not Track” signals, we do not support them and sending one will not change anything we do.

Sharing your personal information

Our “partners” are the organizations and people that we work with to better provide our services. As needed, we may send your information to our partners to help us communicate with you, provide customer support, or process your payments to us. Your information may be stored on our partners’ servers inside or outside of the U.S.

One of our partners, Shopify, provides the software platform for our online Store. Shopify may, for your convenience, collect information about your web session, such as the items in your cart, but Shopify does not provide that information to us. We will, however, be provided your contact and order information once you place an order through the online Store. You can see how Shopify handles your information by reviewing their privacy policy at https://www.shopify.com/legal/privacy.

You may provide some financial information as part of the payment process, such as credit card numbers, but we are not able to access more than the last four digits of those numbers.

You provide us with your email address upon registration. We provide your contact information to our e-mail vendor to send you messages in several contexts, including to send important site notices, as well as notification and mailing lists you opt into.

We may use third-party web analytics services, including Google Analytics, to collect and analyze the information discussed above, and to engage in auditing, research or reporting. The information (including your IP address) collected by various analytics technologies described above will be disclosed to or collected directly by these service providers, who use the information to evaluate your use of the Services, including by noting the third-party website from which you arrive, analyzing usage trends, assisting with fraud prevention, and providing certain features to you. You can find more about Google’s privacy policy here: https://www.google.com/intl/en/policies/privacy/. To opt out of Google Analytics, see https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout.

We may have to share your information with the police, the government, a court, or another person as required by law. Similarly, as allowed by applicable law, we may share your information with third parties as needed to:

  • prevent or take action if we suspect someone is:

    • breaking the law,

    • committing fraud,

    • threatening to harm someone, or

    • violating our Terms of Service;

  • protect the rights, property, or safety of ourselves, our users, or a child;

  • protect the safety and security of our Site(s); or

  • enable us to take reasonable precautions against liability.

If our business is sold, whether through merger, acquisition, bankruptcy, dissolution, reorganization, or other transaction or proceeding, your personal information may be shared with the acquiring company and their representatives. If so, we will post a notice on this page and the Terms of Service.

We will always ask for your permission before sharing your information with third parties for purposes other than those described in our privacy policy.

Review of your personal information

You may review your personal information maintained by us. We can provide you with exported files of your information. Please contact us.

As required by your applicable state, national, or international law, you may also have the right require us to change or delete your personal information, and/or refuse to permit us from further collecting or using your information.

You can update some types of information directly within your account settings. If you are unable to change your information within your account settings, please contact us directly and we will attempt to make the required changes. To protect your privacy and security, we may require you to take certain steps or provide additional information to verify your identity before we provide any information or make corrections. It is important to remember that if you delete or limit the use of your information, our services may not function properly.

You may delete your account. We may store your account information for at least 18 months after account deletion for security purposes.
