SECTION 5 - SHOPIFY

Our store is hosted on Shopify Inc. (“Shopify”). Shopify provides us with the online e-commerce platform that allows us to sell our products and provide the Service to you. As such, your data is stored through Shopify’s data storage, databases and the general Shopify application, and thus is also subject to Shopify’s Terms of Service and Privacy Statement. Shopify stores your data on a secure server behind a firewall. 

If you choose a direct payment gateway to complete your purchase, then Shopify stores your credit card data. It is encrypted through the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI-DSS). Your purchase transaction data is stored only as long as is necessary to complete your purchase transaction. After that is complete, your purchase transaction information is deleted.  All direct payment gateways adhere to the standards set by PCI-DSS as managed by the PCI Security Standards Council, which is a joint effort of brands like Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Discover.  PCI-DSS requirements help ensure the secure handling of credit card information by our store and its service providers.

For more insight regarding Shopify and its’ use of your data and personal information, please consult Shopify’s Terms of Service (https://www.shopify.com/legal/terms) or Privacy Statement (https://www.shopify.com/legal/privacy).

 

SECTION 6 - THIRD-PARTY SERVICE PROVIDERS

We may transfer personal information to companies that help us provide the Service (“third-party service providers”.  As part of the Service, we may use and incorporate information you have provided or we have collected in the aggregate, and we may share this aggregate information with third-party service providers in line with the approved uses in Section 4.  One such third-party service provider used by Freddie and Co. is MailChimp.  Freddie and Co. may, for example, use MailChimp to communicate with you, to promote the Service and our products, or to send you informational or promotional content.  As such, your data is also subject to MailChimp’s Privacy Policy (www.mailchimp.com/legal/privacy).  We will tell you we are working with a third-party service provider whenever reasonably possible, and you may request at any time the name(s) of our third-party service providers.

In general, the third-party service providers used by us will only collect, use and disclose your information to the extent necessary to allow them to perform the services they provide to us.

However, certain third-party service providers, such as payment gateways and other payment transaction processors, have their own privacy policies in respect to the information we are required to provide to them for your purchase-related transactions.  For these providers, we recommend that you read their privacy policies so you can understand the manner in which your personal information will be handled by these providers.  In particular, remember that certain providers may be located in or have facilities that are located a different jurisdiction than either you or us. So if you elect to proceed with a transaction that involves the services of a third-party service provider, then your information may become subject to the laws of the jurisdiction(s) in which that service provider or its facilities are located.  As an example, if you are located in Canada and your transaction is processed by a payment gateway located in the United States, then your personal information used in completing that transaction may be subject to disclosure under United States legislation, including the Patriot Act.

Our website may include links to other websites whose privacy practices may be different from Freddie and Co.’s. When you click on links on our store, they may direct you away from our site.  If you submit personal information to any of those sites, your information is governed by their privacy policies.  We encourage you to read carefully the privacy policy of any website you visit.

Once you leave our store’s website or are redirected to a third-party website or application, you are no longer governed by this Privacy Statement or our website’s Terms of Service.

 

SECTION 7 - SECURITY 

No one is entirely protected from hackers.  If a security breach causes an unauthorized intrusion into our system that materially affects you, we will notify you as soon as reasonably possible and later report the action we took in response. 

If you provide credit card information through Shopify’s direct payment gateway, the information is encrypted using secure socket layer technology (SSL) and stored with a AES-256 encryption.  Although no method of transmission over the Internet or electronic storage is 100% secure, all PCI-DSS requirements are followed and generally accepted industry standards are implemented.
