Your privacy on the Internet is important to us at 12 Scents and we want to make your experience with us safe and transparent. Because we gather certain types of information about our users, we want you to fully understand the terms and conditions surrounding the collection and use of that information. This privacy and security statement discloses what information we gather, how we use it, and the security standards that are followed.
SECTION 1 - WHAT DO WE DO WITH YOUR INFORMATION?
When you provide 12 Scents with personal information solely to place an order, verify your credit card, or complete a transaction, we imply that you consent to our collecting that information and using it for that specific reason only.
When you browse our store, we automatically receive your computer’s internet protocol (IP) address in order to provide us with information that helps us learn about our website traffic so we can continue to improve our website and offerings.
If you have created an account, opted-in or subscribed to receive updates from 12 Scents, we may use your e-mail address as a means to contact you regarding new product offerings, promotions, updates to the 12scents.com site, and/or ways in which we can improve your future shopping experiences. If at any time you no longer want to receive any of these updates, you may opt out of our database by going to our unsubscribe page or you may change your subscription information by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We will only disclose your personal information if we are required by law to do so or if you violate our Terms of Service.
SECTION 2 – SECURITY
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.
Our store is hosted on Shopify Inc. They provide us with the online e-commerce platform that allows us to sell our products and services to you. Your data is stored through Shopify’s data storage, databases and the general Shopify application. They store your data on a secure server behind a firewall.
If you provide us with your credit card information, the information is encrypted using secure socket layer technology (SSL) and stored with an AES-256 encryption. Although no method of transmission over the Internet or electronic storage is 100% secure, we follow all PCI-DSS requirements and implement additional generally accepted industry standards.
If you choose a direct payment gateway to complete your purchase, then Shopify stores your credit card data. It is encrypted through the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI-DSS). Your purchase transaction data is stored only as long as is necessary to complete your purchase transaction. After that is complete, your purchase transaction information is deleted.
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 and Discover.
PCI-DSS requirements help ensure the secure handling of credit card information by our store and its service providers.

SECTION 3 - THIRD-PARTY SERVICES
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 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.
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 and encourage you to read their privacy statements.
If our store is acquired or merged with another company, your information may be transferred to the new owners so that we may continue to sell products to you.
