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.

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, you may also want to read Shopify’s Terms of Service (https://www.shopify.com/legal/terms) or Privacy Statement (https://www.shopify.com/legal/privacy).

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 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.

Cookies are used on our site for Google Analytics and Google Analytics Advertising. Google Analytics is a web analytics tool that helps website owners understand how visitors engage with their website. Google Analytics customers can view a variety of reports about how visitors interact with their website so that they can improve it.

Google Analytics Advertising

Our store also uses Google Analytics Advertising which allows us to enable features not available in standard Google Analytics. Advertising features  may include:

  • Remarketing with Google Analytics
  • Google Display Network Impression Reporting
  • Google Analytics Demographics and Interest Reporting
  • Integrated services that require Google Analytics to collect data via    advertising cookies and identifiers

Personalized advertising (formerly known as interest-based advertising) is a powerful tool that improves advertising relevance for users and increases ROI for advertisers. Because it works by employing online user data to target users with more relevant advertising content, it can provide an improved experience for users and advertisers alike. Google policies define how advertisers are allowed to collect user data and use it for personalized advertising. Google takes user privacy very seriously, and expects advertisers to respect user privacy. These policies apply in addition to the standard AdWords policies for data collection and use. The Personalized advertising data collection and use policies apply to advertisers using targeting features, including:

  • remarketing
  • affinity audiences
  • custom affinity audiences
  • in-market audiences
  • similar audiences
  • demographic and location targeting
  • keyword contextual targeting

Google won't allow another advertiser to use our re-marketing lists or similar audiences lists without your/our consent. Additionally, we aren't allowed to do the following:

  • Run ads that collect or contain personally identifiable information (PII), unless using an ad format provided by Google and designed for that purpose — Examples: collecting email addresses, telephone numbers, or credit card numbers within the ad itself
  • Otherwise imply knowledge of personally identifiable or sensitive information within the ad
  • Use or associate PII with remarketing lists, cookies, data feeds, or other anonymous identifiers
  • Share PII with Google through remarketing tags or any product data feeds that might be associated with ads
  • Send Google precise location information without first obtaining users' consent
  • Use a remarketing list created via DoubleClick's remarketing feature (formerly known as Boomerang) or other remarketing list service for the purposes of AdWords remarketing campaigns, unless the websites and apps from which those lists were compiled meet the requirements of this policy.

Google Analytics Advertising Cookies

Google uses different types of cookies to run Google websites and ads-related products. Some or all of the cookies identified below may be stored in your browser. Google uses cookies to make advertising more engaging to users and more valuable to publishers and advertisers. Some common applications of cookies are to select advertising based on what’s relevant to a user; to improve reporting on campaign performance; and to avoid showing ads the user has already seen.

Cookies like NID and SID to help customize ads on Google properties, like Google Search. For example, cookies to remember your most recent searches, your previous interactions with an advertiser’s ads or search results, and your visits to an advertiser’s website. This helps us to show you customized ads on Google.

Google also uses conversion cookies, whose main purpose is to help advertisers determine how many times people who click on their ads end up purchasing their products. These cookies allow Google and the advertiser to determine that you clicked the ad and later visited the advertiser's site. Conversion cookies are not used by Google for personalized ad targeting and persist for a limited time only.

Google also uses cookies named ‘AID‘ and ‘TAID‘, which are used to link your activity across devices if you’ve previously signed in to your Google Account on another device. These cookies may be set on the domains google.com/ads, google.com/ads/measurement, or googleadservices.com. 

Google Analytics is Google’s analytics tool that helps website and app owners to understand how their visitors engage with their properties. It may use a set of cookies to collect information and report website usage statistics without personally identifying individual visitors to Google. The main cookie used by Google Analytics is the ‘__ga’ cookie.

In addition to reporting website usage statistics, Google Analytics can also be used, together with some of the advertising cookies described above, to help show more relevant ads on Google properties (like Google Search) and across the web.
