SECTION 3 - CONSENT

How do you get my consent?

   When you provide us with personal information to complete a transaction, verify your credit card, place an order, arrange for a delivery or return a purchase, we imply that you consent to our collecting it & using it for that specific reason only.

   If we ask for your personal information for a secondary reason, like marketing, we will either ask you directly for your expressed consent, or provide you with an opportunity to say no.

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 any time, by contacting us at: info@shopnet.ie or mailing us at:

     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 & Discover.

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

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

 

 

SECTION 5 - THIRD-PARTY SERVICES

   In general, the third-party providers used by us will only collect, use & 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 & 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 Ireland & 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.

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

   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 & encourage you to read their privacy statements.

   Our store uses Google Analytics to help us learn about what type of person visits our site & what pages are being looked at. You can read more about how Google uses your Personal Information here:  https://www.google.com/intl/en/policies/privacy/

   Finally, we may also share your Personal Information to comply with applicable laws and regulations, to respond to a subpoena, search warrant or other lawful request for information we receive, or to otherwise protect our rights.

 

SECTION 6 - SECURITY

   To protect your personal information, we take reasonable precautions & 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) & stored with an AES-256 encryption. Although no method of transmission over the Internet or electronic storage is always guaranteed to be 100% secure, we follow all PCI-DSS requirements & implement additional generally accepted industry standards.
