Security MeasuresWe appreciate your trust in providing us with your Personal Information, it is safe with us.
Our website is fully encrypted using industry-standard protocols such as SSL. The data you submit to us will be encrypted and can not be read by third parties. But remember that no method of transmission over the internet, or method of electronic storage is 100% secure, and while we do everything we can, we cannot guarantee its absolute security. Hackers gonna hack! Cybersecurity is a massive industry right now, on both sides, so always use your best judgement when placing orders online. We have additional security measures in place to ensure your privacy and security such as antivirus/malware scanning, limiting logins and blocking bots. We are always looking at new ways to increase our security.
Also, we do not use any third-party tracking cookies or integration with social media. No facebook comment forms, google / apple logins, etc. No embedded third-party files are called from our website frontend.
AnalyticsWe don’t use any analytics/stats software. This makes SEO difficult and it’s hard for us to know how well our site is performing but working hard and respecting your privacy is more important to us than statistics. Most of the internet uses some kind of Analytics and it’s super useful, but super sketchy as well so we opted to respect our customers and hope we do well in search engines.
Data SharingWe only keep minimal information. What is saved is only the information you provide us with to ensure you receive your order. We don’t disclose or sell your contact information to anyone. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username).
How we respond to governmental requests for data?If there is ever a request for data, we will instantly ensure it is deleted. We will never hand over our customer info to anyone, including the government. We would rather start a brand new website than compromise our values.
What rights do you have over your data?You own your data. If you have an account on our site and you want it erased, contact us and we will permanently erase it.
