When you purchase something from our store, as part of the buying and selling process, we collect the personal information you give us such as your name, billing/shipping address(es), email address and phone number (if provided). We use those details only to bill you, invoice you and ship your purchased items to your chosen destination. We do not store your payment information in any form.

When you browse our store, we also automatically receive your computer’s internet protocol (IP) address to provide us with information that helps us learn about your location, browser and operating system. We use those details to automatically adapt our website and its interface to best fit your own viewing terminals (e.g. computer monitor, phone screen, etc.).

With your permission, which is removable at any time and at your sole discretion, we may also send you emails about our website, new products, promotions and new blog posts.


If you reside in certain territories, including the EU, you have a number of rights in relation to your personal information. While some of these rights apply generally, certain rights apply only in certain limited cases. 
We describe these rights below:

• Access. You may have the right to access and receive a copy of the personal information we hold about you by contacting us using the contact information below. 
• Change, restrict, delete. You may also have rights to change, restrict our use of, or delete your personal information. Absent exceptional circumstances (like where we are required to store data for legal reasons) we will generally delete your personal information upon request. 
• Object. You can object to our processing of some of your information based on our legitimate interests and receiving marketing messages from us after providing your express consent to receive them. In such cases, we will delete your personal information unless I have compelling and legitimate grounds to continue using that information or if it is needed for legal reasons. 
• Complain. If you reside in the EU and wish to raise a concern about our use of your information (and without prejudice to any other rights you may have), you have the right to do so with your local data protection authority.


When you provide us with personal information to complete a transaction, verify your credit card or place an order, we imply that you consent to our collecting it and using it for that specific reason only.

If we ask for your personal information for a secondary reason, like marketing, we will ask you directly for your expressed consent and provide you with an opportunity to say no. Furthermore, you will be able to remove said consent at any time and at your sole discretion by simply contacting us via this website, its company email addresses and any other means of communication listed in the Contact Us paragraph of this Privacy Policy.

If after you opt-in, you change your mind, you may withdraw your consent for us to:

• contact you
• for the continued collection, use or disclosure of your information (this does not apply to instances in which the Law requires us to disclose the information we have on you or your transactions)

by contacting us at or at other means of communication listed in the Contact Us paragraph of this Privacy Policy.

We may disclose your personal information if we are required by law to do so or if you violate our Terms of Service.

• Service providers. We engage certain trusted third parties to perform functions and provide services to our company. We will share your personal information with these third parties, but only to the extent necessary to perform these services.

• Business transfers. If we sell or merge our business, we may disclose your information as part of that transaction, only to the extent permitted by law.
