What Are Cookies?

There are a variety of tracking technologies that are frequently used to monitor your website browsing activity and preferences, specifically and generally referred to as “cookies”, as follows:

  • Cookie. A cookie is a small text data file sent by a website and stored on the hard drive of your computer or mobile device by your web browser. The cookie contains a unique number that identifies your visiting browser when you visit our Site or when you interact with our Site-specific content. Cookie “messages” may be sent to your browser by us or by one of our service providers. Your computer or mobile device passes the cookie back to us each time you make a request from our Site.
  • Pixel Tags (aka Tracking Pixel, Web Beacon or Clear GIF). A pixel tag is a tiny, often transparent graphic image that is similar to a cookie and is utilized to monitor the behavior or track the movement of visitors to our Site. These electronic files are embedded images that may register or record information about how you browse our Site. When content containing an affixed pixel tag is accessed, it generates a notice to us.
  • Flash Cookie (aka Local Shared Object). A flash cookie is a persistent data file collected and stored on your computer instead of your web browser. We do not currently utilize content that is flash-dependent, however, in the future there may be certain features of our Site that use flash cookies to enable specific content. It is worth noting that flash cookies cannot be removed by simply exiting your browser. Flash cookies need to be removed by clearing your storage cache of flash-enabled cookies.
  • Log Files. Log files record actions that may occur on an operating system, tracking actions on our Site, and collecting data including your IP address, browser type, Internet service provider, referring/exit pages, and date/time stamps.

Third Party Content and Social Plug-ins

Often content or applications on websites may be served by third parties, content providers and application providers via the use of “plug-ins.” A plug-in adds a specific feature to an existing computer program, gathers information and sends the collected information back to the company to which it is linked. For example, when you select one of the icons for social media companies in order to share to your social media pages, it may trigger a transference of that data. However, our Site does not use plug-ins and instead those relevant features are just built into the Shopify platform. Socially sharing data to Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, YouTube and Instagram is done within Shopify. Please note that the social networks also have their respective data privacy declarations and opt-out links available on their sites for review.

California privacy laws requires that we notify its residents how we use their personal information, whether collected online or offline.

Notice of Information Collection for California Consumers Under §1798.83

California residents have privacy rights under California Civil Code section 1798.83 which regulates the sharing of personal information with third parties or corporate affiliates for their direct marketing purposes. This section, known as California’s the “Shine the Light” law, is part of California’s Consumer Records Act (Civil Code § 1798.83). The “Shine the Light” law empowers consumers to learn how businesses sell their personal information. It addresses the brokering of personal information by third parties to target consumers by spam, telemarketing, junk mail and similar methods. Moreover, it provides consumers with a process to contact businesses in order to learn about disclosures of personal information and how to opt-out of them. Under California’s "Shine the Light" law, California residents who provide personal information when obtaining products or services for personal, family, or household use are entitled to request and obtain certain information from us about the personal information we share, if any, with other businesses for their own direct marketing uses.  That said, it is not our policy to engage in this type of disclosure. We have not sold personal information at any time in the past nor have we sold it within the last 12 months. We may, however, disclose your personal information for the other purposes outlined in this Privacy Policy.

California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018

The California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018 (“CCPA”) grants California consumers specific privacy rights and control over their personal information, including the right to know, the right to delete, and the right to opt-in or out of the sale of personal information that we might collect. It provides additional protections for minors. Under the CCPA, “personal information” is any information that identifies, relates to, describes, is reasonably capable of being associated with, or could reasonably be linked, directly or indirectly, with a particular California resident or household.

The CCPA provides that you have the right to:

  • Request that we disclose certain information to you about our collection, use, disclosure, and sale of your personal information to third parties (if any) over the past 12 months.
  • Request access to a copy of the personal information that we have collected about you within the past 12 months and to have this delivered, free of charge, either (a) by mail or (b) electronically in a portable and readily useable format (if feasible) that allows the individual to transmit this information to another entity without hindrance.
  • Request that we delete any personal information that we collected from you and retained, subject to certain exceptions.
  • Opt out of the sale of your personal information. In general, when the Do Not Track (“DNT”) setting is activated on your web browser it sends a signal to alert sites to disable tracking your activity. However, we do not sell personal information for any of our consumers, whether they be California residents or otherwise, so we do not respond to DNT signals.
  • Exercise your rights under the CCPA free from discrimination. We will not deny you goods or services, charge you different prices or rates, provide you a different level of service, offer inferior goods, or penalize you in any way for making a request under CCPA.

The CCPA temporarily exempts personal information reflecting written or verbal business-to-business communications (“B2B personal information”) from many of its requirements. This Privacy Notice does not disclose our practices with respect to B2B personal information.

Submitting Requests Under the CCPA

Only you, or your legally authorized agent, may make a verifiable consumer request on your behalf for your personal information. You may authorize an agent so long as such person (or entity) is registered with the California Secretary of State. You may also make a verifiable consumer request on behalf of your minor child. You may not request that we delete data for someone other than yourself, your minor child or belonging to someone for whom you are not an authorized agent. Once we receive, confirm and verify your request, we will delete (and direct our service providers to delete) your personal information from our records, unless we are restricted from doing so by law. You may submit your request to exercise right of deletion, right to a copy, and / or the right to information to us in writing via the How to Contact Us section enumerated below.
