SECTION 1 - WHAT DO WE DO WITH YOUR INFORMATION? 

When you purchase something 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 browse our store, we also automatically receive your computer’s internet protocol (IP) address in order to provide 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 - CONSENT 

How do you get my consent?

When you provide us with personal information to complete a transaction, verify your credit card, place an order, arrange for a delivery or return a purchase, we imply that you consent to our collecting it 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, or otherwise opt out.

How do I withdraw my consent?

If after you opt-in, you change your mind, you may withdraw your consent for us to contact you, for the continued collection, use or disclosure of your information, at anytime, by contacting us at hi@waywardcollective.com.

SECTION 3 - DISCLOSURE

We may disclose your personal information if we are required by law to do so or if you violate our Terms of Service

SECTION 4 - SHOPIFY

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.

Some of your data is stored through Shopify’s data storage, databases and the general Shopify application. They store this data on a secure server behind a firewall. 

Payment:

We use Vantiv as our credit card processing platform for transactions you place with us on your credit card. 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.

SECTION 5 - 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 a list of providers, please reach out to us directly at info@waywardcollective.com and we will be more than happy to supply them for you. We recommend that you read their privacy policies directly 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.

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 or our website’s Terms of Service.

SECTION 6 - SECURITY

To protect your personal information, we take reasonable precautions and follow what we believe are commercially reasonable 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.

SECTION 7 - COOKIES

How we use Cookies, Web Beacons, and other similar technologies

When you visit one of our websites, such as waywardcollective.com or waywardjournal.com (these and any others we own or operate are referred to as a "Site") or interact with us at one of our stores or at an event (this and our Sites and our Apps are collectively referred as "Channels"), we may use different kind of technologies for multiple reasons, including to improve your shopping experience, for example by reducing the amount of information required at checkout or by otherwise personalizing your experience with us. Here are some examples:

Browsers: a "browser" is essentially an application (such as Chrome, Firefox or Safari) used to access and view websites by processing HTML, the code used to help you see text, links and other items.

Cookies: "Cookies" are basically a small text file that we or others put on your access device so it can be used to help us serve you better by improving our website design, services, or promotions. They also recognize you (or your device) and may be used to deliver services, or ads or otherwise collect some types of PI. There are several kinds of cookies, e.g., "session" cookies allow our Site to collect information about what you do during a browsing session but are temporary and set to be deleted at then end of a session; "functional or persistent" cookies tend to last more than a session and are set to expire in a set number of days; and "performance" cookies which are basically persistent cookies that collect data for managing performance and design issues. Some cookies operate with other technologies and there are more kinds of cookies. If you choose to refuse cookies or other technologies (if they can be refused), some access to or functionalities of a Channel might not work properly or may be slower or unavailable.

Tracking pixels or tags, web beacons, clear GIFs, API calls, SDKs, JavaScript and other technologies are items that can function similarly to cookies or that otherwise assist tracking for a variety of purposes (e.g., counting users who open an HTML-formatted email message, distinguishing visitors and counting pages they visit and authenticating them, etc.).

Identifiers, including unique identifiers such as an IP address (basically, this is a number that is automatically assigned to a device such as a computer by your Internet Service Provider); a Media Access Control (or "MAC") address which basically is a hardware ID number that is part of a network card such as a Wi-Fi or Ethernet card and that identifies each device on a network, or other identifiers (e.g., Android ID, Apple IDFA, or other identifiers that might otherwise relate to you or devices you use, or identifiers that are used by ads, advertisers, networks, platforms or other third parties).

The above is not necessarily a complete list and we will change and add Technologies and Channels from time to time. Technologies are complex and can differ per Channel. Also, certain kinds of Technologies are likely to be used in multiple Channels.

SECTION 8 - 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 9 - CHANGES TO THIS PRIVACY STATEMENT

We reserve the right to modify this privacy statement at any time, so please review it frequently. Changes and clarifications will take effect immediately upon their posting on the website. If we make material changes to this policy, we will notify you here that it has been updated, so that you are aware of what information we collect, how we use it, and under what circumstances, if any, we use and/or disclose it.

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 serve and otherwise use your personal information.
