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. We follow all PCI-DSS requirements and implement additional generally accepted industry standards. In addition, Shopify reviews its business practices periodically for compliance with policies and procedures governing the security and confidentiality of our information. Nevertheless, no data transmission over the Internet is 100% secure. Accordingly, while we strive to protect your personal information and privacy, we do not warrant or guaranty the security of any information you disclose or transmit to us while using the Site, and we shall not be liable for the theft or inadvertent disclosure of your personal information. We assume no liability for any disclosure of data due to errors in transmission, unauthorized third-party access or other acts of third parties, or acts or omissions beyond our reasonable control.

Your data is stored through Shopify’s data storage, databases and the general Shopify application. Shopify stores 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 the Site and its service providers.

CALIFORNIA PRIVACY RIGHTS
Web beacons (sometimes called “tracking pixels,” “transparent GIFs,” “clear GIFs,” “pixel figs,” or “Pixel tags”) are tiny, invisible images that are embedded on web pages and emails and are stored on your hard drive. They help us count the number of users who visit our websites or open our emails. Tracking pixels help us figure out if certain advertisements/marketing campaigns, product features, notifications, and products or services are effective and if they can be improved. You can modify your browser settings to control web beacons. Using web beacons enables us to measure the effectiveness of our ads for statistical and market research purposes. The data collected in this way is anonymous to us, and we do not see the personal data of individual users.
Our digital marketing and advertising campaigns are fluent and change over time. We are currently using various web beacons, including those from:
FACEBOOK CONVERSIONS API
We use Facebook’s Conversions API (sometimes called “server-side API”). Data is shared using your web browser and from Shopify’s servers, and is sent directly to Facebook’s servers. Data sent from server to server cannot be blocked by browser-based ad blockers. Your personal information will be used to match users on Facebook’s network. The information collected using this setting includes your name, location, email address, and phone number, as well as your browsing behavior on our online store. Glotanicals uses this information for its legitimate interests to measure customer actions, improve the accuracy of information sent for targeting, measurement, and optimization, and for more control over data sharing. You agree that Glotanicals can collect this data through the Facebook Conversions API platform for these purposes.
The legal basis for this use is Article 6, paragraph 1, sentence 1, letter f of the GDPR. You can object to the collection of your data by Facebook pixel, or to the use of your data for the purpose of displaying Facebook ads by contacting the following address: https://www.facebook.com/settings?tab=ads.
