V. HOW DO YOU PROTECT MY PERSONAL INFORMATION?
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. We use technology and administrative procedures to prevent unauthorized access of your Private Information. Shopify Inc. provides us with the online e-commerce platform that allows us to sell our products to you. Your Personal Information is stored through Shopify’s data storage, databases and the general Shopify application. They store your Personal Information on a secure server behind a firewall.  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 industry 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 website and its service providers.  If you provide us with your credit card information, the information is encrypted using secure socket layer technology (SSL) and stored with a AES-256 encryption. However, the Internet and electronic communications can never be completely secure and thus Lotus Wonders cannot definitively protect your Personal Information from unauthorized disclosure or interception. If you suspect that someone is using your credit card without your consent, you should immediately notify your credit card company of the potentially fraudulent charges. Lotus Wonders is authorized to collect any payments made with any credit card information entered on the website. Please remember, if you make Personal Information publicly available, for example by posting it on a portion of the website or other website that can be viewed by the public, you waive any claim of privacy as to such Personal Information.
Your Personal Information will be stored and processed in Canada and is subject to the laws of the province of Ontario and the federal laws of Canada.
