Privacy Policy

Your Consent

When you give us your personal information for a purchase, arrange a delivery, place an order, or verify your credit card, we will use it and collect it for that specific reason only.  If we would like to use your personal information for any other reason, we will ask you for your consent, and you will have the option to say no.  You can withdraw your consent for us to contact you, disclose your information, or continued use of your information at any time by emailing contact@thetownandco.com

 

Shopify Platform

Our store is powered by Shopify Inc, an online commerce platform that allows us to sell products and services.  Shopify will store your data though their storage data, databases, and general Shopify application.  They secure your data behind a firewall.

  

Payment Information

For a direct payment getaway, your information is stored and encrypted via 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, then it is deleted.  Direct payment gateways follow the standards set by PCI-DSS, and managed by the PCI Security Standards Council, which is a collaboration of brands like Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Discover.
PCI-DSS requirements assist in securing the handling of credit card information by our store/service providers.  Please read Shopify’s Terms of Service, (https://www.shopify.com/legal/terms), or Privacy Statement (https://www.shopify.com/legal/privacy) for more information about this platform.

We value the importance to protecting your information, and take precautions to make sure it is not inappropriately misused, accessed, lost, disclosed, altered, and/or destroyed.  When providing us with your credit card information, the information is encrypted using secure socket layer technology (SSL) and stored with a AES-256 encryption.

Third Party Providers

Third-party providers used by us will collect, use and disclose your information necessary to allow them to perform their services for us.  Certain third-party service providers, like payment gateways and other payment transaction processors, have their own privacy policies when it comes to the information we provide to them for purchase-related transactions. We recommend that you read the privacy policies of our third party affiliates so you can understand how your personal information will be handled by these providers.  Certain providers may be located in or have facilities in a different jurisdiction than either us or the client. If you choose to proceed with a transaction that involves the services of a third-party service provider, your information may become subject to the laws of the jurisdiction(s) in which that service provider or its facilities are located.  Once you leave The Town and Co.'s website, or are redirected to a third-party website or application, you are under their privacy policy, and not ours.
