4. Consent

Obtaining your consent
When you provide us with personal information to complete a transaction, verify your credit card, place an order, arrange for a delivery or return a purchase, 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 such as marketing, we will ask you directly for your express consent.

Withdrawing your consent
If, after opting-in, you later change your mind, you may at any time withdraw your consent for us to contact you. Please see clause 9.


5. Where your data is held

Our store is hosted on Shopify Inc. They provide us with the online e-commerce platform that allows us to sell our products and services to you. Your data is stored through Shopify’s data storage, databases and the general Shopify application. They store 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 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 such as 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 information, you may like to read Shopify’s Terms of Service ( and Privacy Statement (

Our marketing facility is hosted by Campaign Monitor Pty Ltd. They provide us with the platform that allows us to email you, provided that you have given us express consent to do so. All data used for this purpose resides in a tightly controlled, secure data centre. This means that information about your identity and preferences is strongly protected by Campaign Monitor against unauthorised access. They maintain safeguards to protect the security of their servers and your personal information.

For more information, you may like to read Campaign Monitor's Privacy Policy ( and Terms of Use (


6. Third party services

In general, the third-party 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 of the information we are required to provide to them for your purchase-related transactions. We recommend that you read the privacy policies of these providers so you can understand the manner in which they will handle your personal information.

Please note that certain providers may be located in, or have facilities located in, a different jurisdiction from either you or us. 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. For example, if you are located in the UK 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.

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 and Data Policy or our website’s Terms of Service.

When you click on links in our store, you may be directed away from our site. We are not responsible for the privacy practices of other sites and encourage you to read their privacy statements.


7. How we safeguard your data

To protect your personal information, we take reasonable precautions and follow industry best practices to make sure it is not inappropriately lost, misused, accessed, disclosed, altered or destroyed.

If you provide us with your credit card information, the information is encrypted using secure socket layer technology (SSL) and stored with an AES-256 encryption. Although no method of transmission over the Internet or electronic storage is 100% secure, we follow all PCI-DSS requirements and implement additional generally accepted industry standards.

We do not have the ability to access any saved passwords.

Except in the case of fraud resulting from our negligence, we do not, to the extent permitted at law, accept responsibility for or any liability resulting from any security breaches which may occur.
