Privacy Policy (Privacy Statement)

Section 1 Who am I, and what is done with your information?

Sea Dog Straps is run and hosted out of New York on an E-commerce platform at SeaDogsStraps.com. When you purchase something from my store, as part of the buying and selling process, I collect the personal information you give such as your name, billing address, shipping address, email address, phone number, credit card/payment details and account information like username and password. I’ll use this information for purposes, such as:

  • Send you information about your account and order
  • Respond to your requests, including refunds or exchanges
  • Process payments and prevent fraud
  • Set up your account for my store
  • Comply with any legal obligations
  • Improve my store offerings
  • Send you marketing messages, or a newsltter

I have access to the information you provide me. For example, as an Administrators I can access:

  • Order information like what was purchased, when it was purchased and where it should be sent
  • Customer information like your name, email address, and billing and shipping information.

I have this access to this information to help fulfill orders, process refunds and support you.

When you browse my store, I also automatically receive your computer’s internet protocol (IP) address in order to provide information that helps myself learn about your browser, operating system, and viewing habits.

Section 2 Payment, Disclosure, Hosting, and E-commerce

My store is hosted on DigitalOcean and running WooCommerce. This combination lets me run an online e-commerce platform that allows me to sell products to you. Your data is stored through DigitalOcean hosting, data storage, databases, and an E-commerce application. DigitalOcean stores your data on a secure server. You can find more information about DigitalOcean.

If you make a payment on my store it is processed by Stripe, here is their privacy policy. It outlines how these types of personal data they collect through their payments products and services (“Services”) and via their online presence, which include their main website at Stripe.com. Stripe has been audited by a PCI-certified auditor and is certified to PCI Service Provider Level 1. This is the most stringent level of certification available in the payments industry. To accomplish this, Stripe makes use of best-in-class security tools and practices to maintain a high level of security. You may also want to read about Stripes security.

If you opt into my newsletter mailing list by entering your email on a page or by making a purchase, I will periodically send you emails about my store, products, coupons, discounts news, and other updates. You will be able to unsubscribe from the emails at any time with a single click.

I may disclose your personal information if I am required by law to do so or if you violate this website’s Terms of Service.

Some product images or photographs on my websites include watches, customer watches, watches to display straps, or other items in pictures. Only what is listed in a product description of any product is what is included in the sale. My watches and customer watches are (obviously) not included.

Section 3 Third Party Services and External Links

In general, the third-party providers used will collect, use and disclose your information to the extent necessary to allow them to perform the services they provide to Sea Dog Straps. However, certain third-party service providers, such as payment gateways, email marketing services, and other 3rd party services have their own privacy policies in respect to the information I am required to provide to them for your purchase-related transactions.

For these providers, I 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 where the site is operated. 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. Once you leave my store’s website or are redirected to a third-party website or application, you are no longer governed by this Privacy Policy or this website’s Terms of Service.

When you click on links on this store, they may direct you away from this site. I am not responsible for the privacy practices of other sites and encourage you to read their privacy statements. Currently, this site uses EmailOctopus which uses Amazon SES for Email Marketing if you sign up for the newsletter or make a purchase, Zapier for Automation (privacy policy), and ShipStation to process shipments lean how this works in their privacy policy.

In addition to my store shares data including, but may not be limited to, analytics, marketing, payment gateways, shipping providers, and third-party services.

If you provide your credit card information, the information is encrypted using secure socket layer technology (SSL) and stored with a AES-256 encryption. No method of transmission over the Internet or electronic storage is 100% secure.
