1. What do you do with my information?
When you purchase something from Empiredgift Store, as part of the buying and selling process, we collect the personal information you provide us such as your name, address and email address.
Also, you will be required to provide Empiredgift Store information regarding your credit card or another payment method. You represent yourself and justify to us that such information is correct and that you are authorized to use the payment instrument.
When you browse our store, we also automatically receive your computer’s internet protocol (IP) address 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.
2. How do you get my 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 actions of collecting and using these data 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.
Our Policy explains what information we collect on the Website, how we use or share this information, and how we maintain such information. By using this Website, you signify your acceptance of this Policy. If you do not agree to the terms of this Policy, in whole or part, you should not use this Website. Please note that this Policy only concerns the information collected on the Website and not any information received or obtained through other methods or sources.
3. How do I withdraw my consent?
If after you opt-in and then change your mind, you can withdraw your consent for us to contact you, for the continued collection, use or disclosure of your information, by contacting us at firstname.lastname@example.org
4. Will my information be disclosed?
We may disclose your personal information if we are required by law to do so or if you violate our Terms of Service.
5. What are your third-parties services?
In general, the third-party providers used by us will only collect, use and disclose your information to the necessary extent 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 privacy policies concerning 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 thoroughly so you can understand how these providers handle your personal information.
In particular, certain providers are located or have facilities 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 service provider, then your information may become subject to the laws of the jurisdiction(s) in which the 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 subjected to disclosure under United States legislation, including the Patriot Act.
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 these sites and encourage you to read their privacy statements.
6. How do you protect my personal information?
To protect your personal information, we take reasonable precautions and strictly follow industry 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 AES-256 encryption. Although no method of transmission over the Internet or electronic storage is 100% safe, we follow all PCI-DSS requirements and implement additional commonly accepted industry standards.
At Empiredgift Store, we never share our customer’s data with the third party in any way. We use the information that you provide for specific purposes such as responding to your requests, customizing your online shopping experience, improving our store and services, and communicating with you. We always try to personalize and continually enhance your Empiredgift shopping experience.
