PRIVACY POLICY

 

When you purchase something from our store, as part of the buying and selling process, we collect the personal information you give us such as your name, address and email address. 

When you browse our store, we also automatically receive your computer's internet protocol (IP) address in order to provide us with information that helps us learn about your browser and operating system. 

Email marketing (if applicable): With your permission, we may send you emails about our store, new products and other updates. 

How do you get my consent? When you provide us with personal information to complete any transaction, verify your credit card, place an order, arrange  a delivery or return a purchase, we imply that you consent to our collecting it and using it for that sole purpose only. 

If we ask for your personal information for a secondary reason, like marketing opportunities, we will either ask you directly for your expressed consent, or provide you with an opportunity to refuse. 

 

How do I withdraw my consent? 

If after you opt-in, you change your mind, you may withdraw your consent for us to contact you, for the continued collection, use or disclosure of your information, at anytime, by contacting us via email at info@nichedecor.ca or or mailing us at:  Niche Decor Inc 242 Earl Stewart Drive, Aurora ON L4G 6V8

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

Our e-commerce 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: 

Choosing a direct payment gateway to complete your purchase, allows Shopify to then store 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 from the database. 

 

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 any of its service providers.

In general, the third-party providers used by us will only collect, use and disclose your information to the extent necessary to allow them to perform the services they provide to us. 

 

However, certain third-party service providers, such as payment gateways and other payment transaction processors, have their own privacy policies in place 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 going forward. 

 

Once you leave our store's website or are redirected to a third-party website or application, you are no longer governed by this Privacy Policy or our website's Terms of Service.

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 and/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. 

By using this site, you represent that you are at least the age of majority in your state or province of residence, or that you are the age of majority in your state or province of residence and you have given us your consent to allow any of your minor dependents to use this site.

If we make material changes to this policy, we will notify you here that it has been updated, so that you are aware of what information we collect, how we use it, and under what circumstances, if any, we use and/or disclose it. If our store is acquired or merged with another company, your information may be transferred to the new owners so that we may continue to sell products to you.
