Personal Information Collected and Its Use
In order to purchase from MasonJonesShops.com, a user must set up an account. When you set up an account with MasonJonesShops.com, the following personal information will be requested: first and last name, mailing address, shipping address, phone number, email address, credit card information, and a password selected by you (“personal information”). When purchasing as a guest the same personal information will be collected with the exception of a password. This same personal information may also be collected at the store.
The personal information we collect will only be used by Mason Jones and its affiliates, their agents or employees, for the purposes of fulfilling orders, tracking your purchasing history, providing a more efficient customer service and shopping experience, and for general marketing purposes. Your email and mailing address will be used to confirm your orders and to receive special offers from Mason Jones. Mason Jones will not sell any of your personal information.
Our website 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 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 website and its service providers.
When you place an order or otherwise provide personal information through MasonJonesShops.com, the information is passed through a secure server. The data submitted is encrypted using SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) before it is sent to us. Although no data transmission over the internet is guaranteed to be 100% secure, SSL encryption provides one of the highest levels of Internet security currently available.
