Privacy & Secure Shopping
Emiko Blue takes security of your personal information and privacy very seriously. When you purchase products from our store, as part of the buying and selling process, we collect the personal information you give us such as your name, address and email address. When you provide us with your personal information to complete a transaction, verify your credit card, place an order, arrange for a delivery or return a purchase, we imply that your consent to our collecting and using it for that specific reason only. If we ask for your personal information for a secondary reason, like marketing, we will either ask you directly for your expressed consent, or provide you with an opportunity to say no.
Our store is hosted on Shopify Inc. They provide us with the e-commerce platform that allows us to sell our products and services to you. Your data is stored on 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 Data Security Standard (PCI-DSS). Your purchase transaction data is stored only as long as it is necessary to complete your purchase transaction. After this 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 in joint effort with brands like Visa, MasterCard and American Express. PCI-DSS requirements help ensure secure handling of credit card information by our store and its secure providers.
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. If you provide us with your credit card information, the information is encrypted using a 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.
Please note: Email is not encrypted and is not considered a secure means of transmitting credit card numbers. We will never ask for sensitive information via email.
