DISCLOSURE

We may disclose your personal information if we are required by law to do so or if you violate our Terms of Service. 

SHOPIFY

The Fat Leaf online store is hosted on Shopify Inc. They provide us with the online e-commerce platform that allows us to sell our products and services to you. 

Your data is stored through Shopify’s data storage, databases and the general Shopify application. They store your data on a secure server behind a firewall.

Payment:

If you choose a direct payment gateway to complete your purchase, then Shopify stores your credit card data. It is encrypted through 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. After that is complete, your purchase transaction information is deleted.

All direct payment gateways adhere to the standards set by PCI-DSS as managed by the PCI Security Standards Council, which is a joint effort of brands like Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Discover. 

PCI-DSS requirements help ensure the secure handling of credit card information by our store and its service providers.

For more insight, you may also want to read Shopify’s Terms of Service or Privacy Statement.

THIRD-PARTY SERVICES

Fat Leaf Ltd does not share your data or sell your data to other third party businesses or organisations.  The only time we give the third-party providers your data will be to enable them to perform services they provide for us.  For example it is necessary to provide delivery firms with your name, address and telephone number (when advised) to ensure that the product you have purchased can be delivered.

However, certain third-party service providers, such as payment gateways and other payment transaction processors, have their own privacy policies in respect to 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 so you can understand the manner in which your personal information will be handled by these providers.  

Once you leave Fat Leaf's online store website or are redirected to a third-party website, you are no longer covered by this Privacy Statement or the Fat Leaf  Terms of Service. 

When you click on links on the Fat Leaf online store, they may direct you away from our website. Fat Leaf are not responsible for the privacy practices of other sites and encourage you to read and review their privacy statements.

SECURITY

To protect your personal information, we take reasonable precautions and follow industry best 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 a AES-256 encryption.  Although no method of transmission over the Internet or electronic storage is 100% secure, we follow all PCI-DSS requirements and implement additional generally accepted industry standards.
