What do we do with your information?

When you purchase something from our store, as part of the buying and selling process, we collect personal information you give us such as your name, address, and email address.

When you browse our store, we also 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.

Email marketing (if applicable): With your permission, we may send you emails about our store, new products, and other updates.

Consent

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

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 orders@meister-made.com.

Disclosure

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

WooCommerce & Etsy

Our store is hosted on our own website, using WooCommerce, an online e-commerce platform that allows us to sell our products and services to you. We also have a shop on Etsy, a handmade store front.

Your data is stored through our website and Etsy’s data storage, databases, and the general applications. We store data on a secure server behind a firewall.

Payment

For purchases on Meister-made.com we utilize Paypal as the payment gateway for you to complete your purchase and on MeisterMade.Etsy.Com we utilize Etsy payments. Purchases on both sites are 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 ensure the secure handling of credit card information by our store and its service providers.

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 processors, have their own privacy policies in respect to the information we are required to provide them or 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 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 provider, then your information may be subject to the laws of the jurisdiction(s) in which that service provider or its facilities are located. 

As an example, kf 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 registration, 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.
