SECTION 1 – PERSONAL INFORMATION
We collect your name, address and email address as part of the buying and selling process. We automatically receive your computer’s internet protocol (IP) address when browsing out store which provides us with information that helps us learn about your browser and operating system.
With your permission, we may send you emails about our store, new products and other updates.
SECTION 2 – PROVIDING CONSENT
The personal information collected when completing a transaction is used for that purpose only.
We will only retain your information for secondary reasons, after asking you directly for your expressed consent, and give you an opportunity to say no.
If you change your mind after you opt-in, you may withdraw your consent for us to contact you, for the continued collection, use or disclosure of your information, at any time, by contacting us at email@example.com or using the unsubscribe link when applicable.
SECTION 3 – AGE OF CONSENT
By using this site, you represent that you are at least the age of majority in your state or province of residence, or that you are the age of majority in your state or province of residence and you have given us your consent to allow any of your minor dependents to use this site.
SECTION 4 – DISCLOSURE OF PERSONAL INFORMATION
We will disclose your personal information if we are required by law if you violate our Terms of Service.
SECTION 5 – SECURITY
To protect your personal information, we take reasonable precautions and follow all PCI-DSS requirements and industry best practices to ensure data is not inappropriately misused, accessed, disclosed, altered or destroyed.
We process payments via Square or PayPal. At no point in the transaction does Whispey have access to view or store your payment details. All transactions take place on the payment processor’s servers.
If you choose a direct payment gateway to complete your purchase, then your transaction will be handled by Square. Square 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.

If you choose PayPal to complete your purchase, then your transaction will be handled by PayPal either by providing your credit card information to PayPal or via your stored data in your existing PayPal account.

SECTION 7 – 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 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 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.
