Upon arrival onto our website, your internet protocol (IP) address is obtained through Shopify. This is obtained only to learn information about your browser & operating system, which helps give us a better understanding so that we can design and present our website content in a manner that properly displays our information to visitors. We never use your IP address for anything other than general data collection, and it is securely stored by Shopify.

Other means of data we may collect are your name, mailing address, phone number and email address. All fields listed here are shared with us only when you the customer explicitly give it to us by filling in our purchasing order form, and we only use this data to serve you as the customer to fulfill your orders, by mailing you your purchased goods or emailing you updates about your order's status. We NEVER send email marketing to you unless you clearly give us consent to (by signing up for our email newsletter) and we never use your address or phone number for marketing purposes. We NEVER share this information with anyone. The only way we will ever disclose this information is in the way of legal action, if we are required to do so by law. 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 after you opt-in, you change your mind, you may withdraw your consent for us to contact you, for the continued collection, use or disclosure of your information, at anytime, by contacting us at shopnomadichearts@gmail.com.

Our store is hosted on Shopify Inc. They provide us with the online e-commerce platform that allows us to sell our products 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 is necessary to complete your purchase transaction. After that is complete, your purchase transaction information is deleted. Your credit card number is not shared with us in full and we do not have access to it at any time.

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).

Occasionally we may use third party app on our website that is in no way affiliated with Shopify. 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. Each third-party provider we may use complies with the general protection data regulations (GDPR). However, certain third-party service providers, such as payment gateways and other payment transaction processors (for example, PayPal), 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. 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.

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