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, post service and other, 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 (e.g. here is the link to the privacy policy of the payment gateway that we use: https://stripe.com/ie/privacy).

In particular, remember that although we provide our service in Ireland only certain providers may be located in or have facilities that are located under 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.

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.

You can recognise an encrypted connection in your browser’s address line when it changes from “http://” to “https://” and by the lock icon in your browser line. If SSL encryption is activated, the data which you transfer to us cannot be read by third parties.

We do not store your credit card information on our servers. All of the payment data (credit card numbers, codes, expiration date, etc.) is processed by the third-party service and the responsibility of keeping and using this information are covered by the T&C of the Stripe.com.
