By placing an order or arranging an exchange or return, you consent to our collecting this information and using it to process your order.

Our store is hosted by Shopify. They are an e-commerce platform through which we sell our products. They store your data safely on a secure server behind a firewall. When paying via credit card, Shopify stores your credit card data by encrypting it through the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI-DSS). This data is only stored long enough to process your transaction, and after that your information is deleted. If you are completing your transaction via direct payment, these gateways adhere to the standards set by PCI-DSS. This is managed by the PCI Security Standards Council and is a joint effort of brands like Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Discover. This helps ensure that all credit card information will be handled securely by our store and its service providers.
