1. Collecting Personal Information
When you browse our store, we automatically receive device information when you access our site using cookies (such as your version of web browser, IP address, time zone, cookie information, what sites or products you view, search terms, and how you interact with the site). This provides us with information to help us learn about your browser and operating system in order to load our site accurately for you and to perform analytics on site usage for optimisation.
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 (including name, billing address, shipping address, payment information such as credit card numbers, email address and phone number), we infer that you consent to our collecting it and using it for that specific reason only. The purpose of collection is to provide products or services to you to fulfill our contract, to process your payment information, arrange for shipping, and provide you with invoices and/or order confirmations, 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.
When you contact our customer support, the information you provide (including name and email address) will be used to provide customer support and to improve the services we provide.

4. Using Personal Information
We use your Personal Information to provide our services to you, which includes: offering products for sale, processing payments, shipping and fulfillment of your order, and keeping you up to date on new products, services and offers.
Pursuant to the General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”), if you are a resident of the European Economic Area (“EEA”), we process your Personal Information under the following lawful bases:
- Your consent;
- The performance of the contract between you and the site;
- Compliance with our legal obligations;
- To perform a task carried out in the public interest;
- For our legitimate interests, which do not override your fundamental rights and freedoms.
When you place an order through the site, we will retain your Personal Information for our records unless and until you ask us to erase this information. For more information on your right of erasure, please see “Your rights” section below.
6. Automatic Decision-Making
If you are a resident of the EEA, you have the right to object to processing based solely on automated decision-making (which includes profiling), when that decision-making has a legal effect on you or otherwise significantly affects you.
We do not engage in fully automated decision-making that has legal or otherwise significant effect using customer data.
Our processor Shopify uses limited automated decision-making to prevent fraud that does not have a legal or otherwise significant effect on you.
Services that include elements of automated decision-making include:
- Temporary denylist of IP address associated with repeated failed transactions. This denylist persists for a small number of hours.
- Temporary denylist of credit cards associated with denylisted IP addresses. This denylist persists for a small number of days.
7. Your Rights

Your Personal Information will be initially processed in Ireland and then will be transferred outside of Europe for storage and further processing, including to Canada and the United States. For more information on how data transfers comply with the GDPR, see Shopify’s GDPR Whitepaper: https://help.shopify.com/en/manual/your-account/privacy/GDPR.
