We will provide a link to this policy clearly visible next to any form where we ask for your personal data, and consider your submission of those forms as acknowledgment that you read this policy and agree to let us use your data in the way described in this policy.
Collecting personal data is required to create an account, place orders, and use certain aspects of our website.
PERSONAL INFORMATION WE COLLECT
When you create an account we will collect your name and email address. We will refer to this as “Personal Information.” You may opt to receive marketing emails regarding our products and services that we think will be of interest to you. We will provide you a way to unsubscribe from all marketing emails by including a link in the bottom of each email.
During checkout we will collect your street address, city, state, zip code, country, and phone number. We will refer to this as “Order Information.” We do this so we know where to ship your order, and if we need to contact you by email or phone regarding your order or account. We will not use your phone number for marketing purposes, only to contact you about your order, account, or to provide delivery notifications from our delivery software.
During checkout we will also require you to provide a credit card. We do not collect your card number or card security code. We only collect and store the last four digits of your card number, the card brand, the cardholder name, expiration date, and billing address. We do this so we can provide you with details on what cards you have provided and are using to pay for a particular order. See the section below titled “HOW DO WE PROCESS CREDIT CARD DATA?” to learn more about how your card data is processed.
When signing up for our newsletter will collect your email. We do this so we can send you our newsletter and other marketing emails we think you will find interesting.
HOW DO WE USE YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION?
We use the Order Information that we collect generally to fulfill any orders placed through our website (including processing your payment information, arranging for shipping, and providing you with invoices and/or order confirmations). Additionally, we use this Order Information to:
Communicate with you;
Screen our orders for potential risk or fraud; and
When in line with the preferences you have shared with us, provide you with information or advertising relating to our products or services.
HOW DO WE PROCESS CREDIT CARD DATA?
When you initially provide or update your payment information, we transmit it via an encrypted connection to our payment processor Stripe (stripe.com) or PayPal (paypal.com). Your credit card data or PayPal account information never touches our servers and your full card number and security code are never saved on our servers. When Stripe saves your card, they send us a unique ID for that card that we save in our database. When we charge your credit card we send a request to Stripe including the amount to charge and the ID of the card that should be charged. Stripe will then issue the charge on our behalf.
We do not store your payment information, other than card brand, last four digits of your card number, cardholder name, expiration date, and billing address.
We use Google Analytics and Cookies to improve our service, the user experience, and for analyzing how our website is used. Google analytics will collect your IP address to track your approximate location. Other information collected by Google Analytics is mostly anonymous traffic data including browser information, device information, and language. This information is used to provide an overview of how people are accessing and using our website. We might use your data to automate decisions such as presenting you with targeted messages based on the website that referred you to our website.

We may also use the information to track trends in purchasing habits and to build an advertising profile for you.
