This privacy policy sets out how Cristian Cole uses and protects any information that you entrust us with when using this website.

Cristian Cole is committed to ensuring that your privacy is protected. Should we ask you to provide certain information by which you can be identified when using this website, then you can be assured that it will only be used in accordance with this privacy statement.

From time to time and in accordance with new international data laws, Cristian Cole may change this policy by updating this page. You should check this page from time to time to ensure that you are satisfied and up-to-date with any changes.

Our privacy policy has been updated in accordance with the implementation of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and is in effect from May 25, 2018.

SECTION 1 - WHAT DO WE DO WITH YOUR INFORMATION?

When purchasing a product from Cristian Cole, as part of the buying and selling process, we collect the personal information which you have provided to us, such as your name, address, phone number, and email address.

When browsing our store, we automatically receive your computer’s internet protocol (IP) address in order to provide us with information that helps us learn about your browser and operating system.

With your permission, we may send you emails about our store, new products and other updates in the form of a subscription newsletter or order confirmation.

SECTION 2 - CONSENT

How do you get my consent?

When providing 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 us collecting and using your personal information for that specific reason only.

If we ask for any personal information for a secondary reason, such as marketing, we will either ask directly for your expressed consent or provide you with an opportunity to say 'no'.


How do I withdraw my consent?

If you change your mind after opting-in, you may withdraw your consent for us to contact you for the continued collection, use or disclosure of your information, at any time by contacting us at info@cristiancole.com

SECTION 3 - DISCLOSURE

We may disclose your personal information if we are required to do so by law or if you violate our Terms of Service.

SECTION 4 - SHOPIFY

Our store is hosted by Shopify Inc. They provide us with the online e-commerce platform which 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.

PAYMENT
If you complete a purchase through a direct payment gateway, 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. Once the process is completed, 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 including Visa, Mastercard, American Express and Discover.

PCI-DSS requirements help to ensure the secure handling of credit card information by our store and its service providers.

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

SECTION 5 - 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 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 that 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.

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 Policy or our website’s Terms of Service.
