Third-party providers we chose to use disclose your information to the extent necessary to allow them to perform the services they provide to us. We choose partners that are GDPR compliant and have a clear privacy policy. An overview of our key suppliers and privacy/security policies can be found in the link below.

INFRASTRUCTURE – Google cloud Services, Google Workspace Business 

SOFTWARE – Hubspot, Gmail, Google Sheets.

PARTNERS – Our website is hosted by Google Cloud Services.

Q7: Are there other third party service providers that use my personal data?

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 in 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.

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. Our servers are secured in Google Cloud Platform. Gmail and G-Suite are used for communication, file transfer and storage, API’s are used from trusted sources over encrypted connections and personal data is protected on robust servers with firewalls.

Q10: Are online payments secure?

If you choose a direct payment gateway to complete your purchase, the online store transmits your credit card data. The store data 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.
