Our Privacy Policy

In a plain-English nutshell, here’s our take on privacy: We really hate it when people misuse our information, so we won’t do that to you. Our goals are to give you great user and shopping experiences, period. Rest assured that we won’t provide your information to others, you are safe with us. (Okay, we will to process your online store transactions, but we have to do that because we aren’t a bank. You get that.)

For your reading pleasure, here’s the full and legalesed version of our privacy policy from our attorneys:

What is “Personally Identifiable Information” (PII)?

As used in U.S. privacy law and information security, PII is information that can be used on its own or with other information to identify, contact, or locate a single person, or to identify an individual in context.

When and why do we collect your PII?

We collect personal information from you when you visit the site and when you enter information on our site, such as placing an online order. We may use that information to facilitate your user experience, to process requests made by you (such as to sign up for e-mails or to send us a message), and/or to process your transactions in our online store.

What PII do we collect from visitors to our website?

When ordering or registering on our site, you may be asked to enter your name, email address, mailing address, phone number, credit card information or other details to help you with your experience.

How do we protect your PII?

We do not use vulnerability scanning and/or scanning to PCI standards. Your personal information is contained behind secured networks and is only accessible by a limited number of persons who have special access rights to such systems, and are required to keep the information confidential. In addition, all sensitive/credit information you supply is encrypted via Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology.

We implement a variety of security measures when a user places an order enters, submits, or accesses their information
All transactions are processed through a gateway provider and are not stored or processed on our servers.

COPPA (Children Online Privacy Protection Act)

When it comes to the collection of personal information from children under 13, the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) puts parents in control. The Federal Trade Commission, the nation’s consumer protection agency, enforces the COPPA Rule, which spells out what operators of websites and online services must do to protect children’s privacy and safety online.

We do not specifically market to children under 13.

California Online Privacy Protection Act

CalOPPA is the first state law in the nation to require commercial websites and online services to post a privacy policy. The law’s reach stretches well beyond California to require a person or company in the United States (and conceivably the world) that operates websites collecting personally identifiable information from California consumers to post a conspicuous privacy policy on its website stating exactly the information being collected and those individuals with whom it is being shared, and to comply with this policy. – See more at: http://consumercal.org/california-online-privacy-protection-act-caloppa/#sthash.0FdRbT51.dpuf
According to CalOPPA we agree to the following:

  • Users can visit our site anonymously.
  • Once this privacy policy is created, we will add a link to it on our home page, or as a minimum on the first significant page after entering our website.
  • Our Privacy Policy link includes the word ‘Privacy’, and can be easily be found on the page specified above.

Fair Information Practices

The Fair Information Practices Principles form the backbone of privacy law in the United States and the concepts they include have played a significant role in the development of data protection laws around the globe. Understanding the Fair Information Practice Principles and how they should be implemented is critical to comply with the various privacy laws that protect personal information.

In order to be in line with Fair Information Practices we will take the following responsive action, should a data breach occur:

  • We will notify the users via email within 7 business days
  • We also agree to the individual redress principle, which requires that individuals have a right to pursue legally enforceable rights against data collectors and processors who fail to adhere to the law. This principle requires not only that individuals have enforceable rights against data users, but also that individuals have recourse to courts or a government agency to investigate and/or prosecute non-compliance by data processors.
