This Privacy Statement applies to information collected when you visit our website (www.vermontsownproducts.com) or access or use services that we make available from time to time through our website.
SECTION 1 - WHAT DO WE DO WITH YOUR INFORMATION?
Google Analytics - http://www.google.com/analytics
If you provide us with your email address and opt-in to receiving emails from us, we may send you emails about our store, new products and other updates.
SECTION 2 - CONSENT
How do you get my consent to collect this information?
By visiting our website, you are agreeing to the collection of your personal information and the terms of this Privacy Statement.
If you elect to use Facebook Connect or similar logins to automatically populate certain information on our website, you are authorizing us to collect, store, and use, in accordance with this Privacy Statement, any and all information that you agreed that Facebook or such other third parties could provide to us through their application programming interface. You control the information that we receive from Facebook or other similar social media sites, and such information may include, without limitation, your first and last name, Facebook username, Facebook profile picture, unique Facebook identifier and access token, and e-mail address.
How do I withdraw my consent?
You may opt out at any time from the use of your personal information for direct marketing purposes by emailing us at email@example.com.
You have the right to correct, amend or delete your personal information where it is inaccurate or has been processed in violation of this Privacy Statement. We may require payment of a non-excessive fee to defray our expenses in this regard. Please allow us a reasonable time to respond to your inquiries and requests.
SECTION 3 - DISCLOSURE
We may be required to disclose your personal information in response to lawful requests by public authorities, including for the purpose of meeting national security or law enforcement requirements. We may also disclose personal information to other third parties when compelled to do so by government authorities or required by law or regulation including, but not limited to, in response to court orders and subpoenas.
SECTION 4 - 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, other payment transaction processors, and a website manager, have their own privacy policies in respect to the information we are required to provide to them for your purchase-related transactions. We have no control over the privacy practices of these third-party service providers. As such, we are not responsible for the privacy policies of those third-party service providers. 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 in 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 in 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.
Once you leave our store’s website or are redirected to a third-party website or application, you are no longer governed by this Privacy Statement.
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 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.

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 secure socket layer technology (SSL) and stored with a 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.
