We may disclose your personal information if we are required by law to do so or if you violate our Terms of Service.
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 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.
In particular, remember that certain providers may be located in or have facilities that are located in a different jurisdiction than either you or us. So if you elect to proceed with a transaction that involves the services of a third-party service provider, then your information may become subject to the laws of the jurisdiction(s) in which that service provider or its facilities are located.
As an example, if you are located in Canada and your transaction is processed by a payment gateway located in the United States, then your personal information used in completing that transaction may be subject to disclosure under United States legislation, including the Patriot Act.

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 enter a credit card number into a text box on our website, the information is sent over an encrypted connection using secure socket layer technology (SSL) . We work with 2 payment processors; Stripe and Paypal. These services have their own security in place.

When you save a credit card for automatic payments, we save a token provided by our payment processors instead of the actual payment information. That token allows for repeated transactions while keeping confidential the payment information.
We encrypt all connections when possible with 3rd parties using the HTTPS protocol, including connection with integrated ecommerce platforms.
