How Long We Retain Your Data

We generally store information about you for as long as we need the information for the purposes for which we collect and use it, and we are not legally required to continue to keep it. For example, we will store order information for 7 years for tax and accounting purposes. This includes your name, email address and billing and shipping addresses.

If you leave a comment or review, the comment (or review) and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.

For users that create an account on our website, we also store the personal information they provide in their user account. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information. We retain inactive accounts for 5 years. This is so that you may return to our site and easily order from us in the future.

We retain pending orders for 60 days. We retain failed orders for 2 years. We retain canceled orders for 2 years. This is both for tax and accounting reasons and so that we may contact you to resolve any issues with your order.

 

Where We Send Your Data

In addition to the ways that we share data that we’ve mentioned above, we also send certain data to third parties in order to conduct our business. We only work with firms that share our high commitment to security and privacy.

 

Spam Prevention

Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.

 

Site Backups

We back up our entire web site, including its component databases, on Amazon web servers twice daily. Retired backups are deleted after 90 days.

 

Credit Card Information

We DO NOT collect credit card information or store it on our servers and we do not have access to it at any time during or after your transaction. Instead, your credit card information is collected directly by our credit card payment gateway, Authorize.net. Authorize.net is one of the world’s leading credit card processors. It uses the strongest possible encryption methods to protect your data at each step of the purchase process. For more information about how Authorize.net uses your data, please check out its Privacy Policy at https://www.authorize.net/about-us/privacy/.

We have hardened our website with a robust firewall which protects it and your information from hacking, malware installation and DDoS attacks.

SSL

We use Secure Sockets Layer (“SSL”) technology to protect the transmission over the Internet of your payment card data.

When accessing a secure site, the first characters of the site address change from “http” to “https.” If you are using a web browser or firewall that does not permit communications through secure sites, you will not be able to make purchases on our site.

Digital certificates secure communications between your browser and our secure servers.

SSL encrypts your order information to avoid the decoding of that information by anyone other than us.
