PRIVACY POLICY

SECTION 1 – WHAT DO WE DO WITH YOUR INFORMATION? 

When you purchase something from our store, as part of the purchase and sale process, we collect the personal information you provide to us, such as your name, address and email address. When you browse our store, we also automatically receive the address of the Internet Protocol (IP)  in order to provide us with information that helps us learn about your browser and operating system. Email marketing (if applicable): With your permission, we can send you emails about our store, new products and other updates.

SECTION 2 – CONSENT 

How do you have 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 collect your information and use it for this reason specifically. If we ask for your personal information for another reason, such as marketing, we will ask for your consent directly, or provide you with the opportunity to say no. How can I withdraw my consent? If you change your mind, you can withdraw your permission to be contacted, for the continued collection, use or disclosure of your information, at any time, by contacting us at fortezzaleather@gmail.com

SECTION 3 – DISCLOSURE 

We may disclose your personal information if we are required by law to do so or if you violate our Terms of Service. 

SECTION 4 – WordPress and Woocommerce 

Our shop is hosted by WordPress and Woocommerce. They provide us with the e-commerce online platform that allows us to sell our products and services. Your data is stored through WordPress data storage, databases and WordPress general applications. Your data is stored on a secure server behind a firewall. 

PAYMENT: If you choose a direct payment method to complete your purchase, WordPress stores your encrypted credit card data through the PCI DSS (PCI-DSS). Your purchase transaction data is stored only as long as it is necessary to complete your purchase transaction. After it is completed, your credit card information is deleted. All direct payment gateways adhere to the standards set by PCI-DSS as handled by the PCI Security Standards Council, which is a joint effort of brands such as Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Discover. PCI-DSS requirements help ensure the safe handling of credit card information from stores and their service providers. For a clearer view, you may also read want to read WordPress Terms of Service (https://en.wordpress.com/tos/) and Woocommerce (https://woocommerce.com/terms-conditions/) or Privacy Statement (https:///wordpress.org/about/privacy/) (https://woocommerce.com/privacy-policy/). 

SECTION 5 – THIRD-PARTY SERVICES 

In general, third-party services used by us may only collect, use and disclose your information to the extent necessary for them to perform the services they provide to us. However, some 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 their purchase-related transactions. For these third parties, it is recommended that you read their privacy policies so that you can understand how your personal information will be handled by them. In particular, you should note that some suppliers may be located in or have facilities that are in a different jurisdiction than you or us. So if you decide to proceed with a transaction involving the services of a third-party service provider, your information may be subject to the laws of the jurisdiction(s) where the third parties are located. For example, if you are in Canada and your transaction is done via a payment gateway in the United States, then personal information that is used in the conduct of the transaction may be disclosed under United States law, including the Patriot Act. Once you leave the website of our store or redirect to a third party website or app, you are no longer governed by this privacy policy or terms of service of our website.

If you provide us with your credit card information, the information is encrypted using Secure Connection Layer (SSL) technology and stored with AES-256 encryption.
