PRIVACY POLICY

**PRIVACY POLICY**

**ARTICLE 1 – PERSONAL INFORMATION COLLECTED**
When you make a purchase from our store, as part of the buying and selling process, we collect personal information that you provide 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 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.

**ARTICLE 2 – CONSENT**
**How do you obtain my consent?**
When you provide us with personal information to complete a transaction, verify your credit card, place an order, arrange for delivery, or return a purchase, we imply that you consent to our collecting it and using it for that specific purpose only. If we ask for your personal information for a secondary reason, like marketing, we will either directly ask for your explicit consent or provide you with an opportunity to decline.

**How can I withdraw my consent?**
If you change your mind after giving your consent and no longer wish for us to contact you, collect your information, or disclose it, you can let us know by contacting us at info@laptory.com.

**ARTICLE 3 – DISCLOSURE**
We may disclose your personal information if required by law or if you violate our Terms and Conditions of Sale and Use.

**ARTICLE 4 – SHOPIFY**
Our store is hosted on Shopify Inc. They provide us with the online e-commerce platform that allows us to sell our services and products 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, Shopify stores your credit card data. This data 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 PCI-DSS standards, managed by the PCI Security Standards Council, which is a joint effort of brands like Visa, MasterCard, American Express, and Discover. The PCI-DSS requirements help ensure the secure handling of credit card information by our store and its service providers.
For more information, please read Shopify's Terms of Service [here](https://www.shopify.com/legal/terms) or Privacy Policy [here](https://www.shopify.com/legal/privacy).

**ARTICLE 5 – THIRD-PARTY SERVICES**
Generally, 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 regarding 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 how your personal information will be handled.
Note that some providers may be located or have facilities in a different jurisdiction than either you or us. So if you proceed with a transaction that involves the services of a third-party provider, then your information may become subject to the laws of the jurisdiction(s) in which that service provider or its facilities are located.
For example, if you're in Canada and your transaction is processed by a payment gateway in the United States, then your personal information used in completing that transaction may be subject to disclosure under U.S. legislation, including the Patriot Act.
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 and Conditions of Sale and Use.

**Links**
When you click on links on our store, they may direct you away from our site. We are not responsible for the privacy practices of other sites and encourage you to read their privacy statements.

**ARTICLE 6 – SECURITY**
To protect your personal data, we take reasonable precautions and follow industry best practices to ensure it is not inappropriately lost, misused, accessed, disclosed, altered, or destroyed.
If you provide us with your credit card information, the data is encrypted using Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology and stored with AES-256 encryption. While 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.
