Where We Share Your Information and Why
We have not and will not sell your information to a third party, ever. That would be a direct violation of our promise to keep your data safe and secure. We do, however, share some information with trusted partners who help maintain our privacy mission. They fall into a few categories:
Shipping & Delivery
We need to share information with our shipping partners so they can get your order to the right doorstep. We only work with highly respected delivery services like USPS, FedEx, DHL etc. and share as little personal information as possible.
We use third-party payment processing providers in order to take payments securely. This keeps your sensitive credit card and other payment information safe. We do not store your credit card information on our site.
Fraud Detection Agencies
We may work with credit card reference and fraud detection companies to ensure the safety of our customers and our business from fraud crimes. This allows us to cancel fraudulent orders before the victim is affected.
We work with select third parties to improve our website technology and experience. We share limited information only when it is absolutely essential.
We work with third party companies for marketing features such as product reviews and email notifications. Any personal information that they use is limited and secure.

This can include as long as you maintain a customer account with us or as long as needed to provide our customer support services - if you have a message history with us.

- We are required by law (an existing regulation or one enacted in the future) to retain your information for a longer period or delete it in a shorter period.
- You exercise your right to request that we delete all your information and we do not have existing legal obligations to hold on to it.
