Definitions (for clarification):
‘You’ or ‘Your’ refers to you as a participant in or as a user of the PeteKremer.com website.
‘I’, ‘My’, ‘We’, ‘Our’ or ‘Us’ means PeteKremer.com.
‘My site’ or ‘Our site’ means PeteKremer.com.
…pretty straightforward so far.
SECTION 1 – WHAT DO I DO WITH YOUR INFORMATION?
If (and when) you purchase something from my site, personal information you give us such as your name, address and email address is collected. This enables me to fulfill and support the products you purchase.
Email marketing: I only send emails out if it is required as part of the buying process, or if you have given me permission. With your permission, I may send emails about free content (i.e. article posts, YouTube videos, reports, etc.) or perhaps specials promotions.
SECTION 2 – CONSENT
When you provide your personal information to complete a purchase, 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 I ask for your personal information for a reason other than to complete a purchase (i.e. newsletter subscription and marketing messages), you will be asked directly for your expressed consent, and I will provide you with an opportunity to withdraw your consent.
You may withdraw your consent at any time by clicking on an “unsubscribe” link, which is offered at the bottom of every email I send.
You may also withdraw your consent anytime, by contacting me at firstname.lastname@example.org
SECTION 3 – DISCLOSURE
IMPORTANT!!! I do not (and will not) sell, rent or otherwise disclose your personal information to any third parties, including but not limited to advertisers, strategic partners or vendors. Again, we take I privacy very seriously.
I may disclose your personal information ONLY if I am required by law to do so or if you violate our Terms of Service. Also, if my site happens to be acquired or merged with another company, your information may be transferred to the new owners so that they may continue to sell and support our products and services.
SECTION 4 – DATA STORAGE
My shopping cart solution is currently hosted and managed by ZOHO and PayPal. They each provide different components of the online e-commerce platform that allows me to sell products and services to you.
Your data is stored through ZOHO’s and PayPal’s data storage, databases and their general applications. They store your data on a secure server behind a firewall.
If you choose a direct payment gateway to complete your purchase, then PayPal 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.
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 to ensure the secure handling of credit card information by our store and its service providers.
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 you can understand the manner in which these providers will handle your personal information.
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.
Links: When you click on links on my website, 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.
SECTION 6 – SECURITY
To protect your personal information, we take reasonable precautions and follow industry best practices to make sure it is not inappropriately lost, misused, accessed, disclosed, altered or destroyed.
If you provide us with your credit card information, the information is encrypted using secure socket layer technology (SSL) and stored with a AES-256 encryption. Although no method of transmission over the Internet or electronic storage is 100% secure, we follow all PCI-DSS requirements and implement additional generally accepted industry standards.
