 D. Shopify

The Marieke Stoop | 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. Shopify does not and will never share, disclose, sell, rent, or otherwise provide Personal Information to other companies for the marketing of their own products or services. Shopify does not use the Personal Information to contact or market to your customers or directly compete with you. However, Shopify may contact or market to you if they obtain their information from another source, such as from yourself.

E. Payment

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.

For more insight, you may also want to read Shopify’s Terms of Service (https://www.shopify.com/legal/terms) or Privacy Statement (https://www.shopify.com/legal/privacy).

 F. Security

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, Shopify follows all PCI-DSS requirements and implement additional generally accepted industry standards.

Shopify follows industry standards on information security management to safeguard sensitive information, such as financial information, intellectual property, employee details and any other Personal Information entrusted to us. Their information security systems apply to people, processes and information technology systems on a risk management basis.

Shopify performs annual audits to ensure our handling of your credit card information aligns with industry guidelines. They are certified as a PCI DSS Level 1 compliant service provider, which is the highest level of compliance available, and their platform is audited annually by a third-party qualified security assessor.

(1) Unsupported Browser

To ensure your security and privacy, Marieke Stoop | Store requires that you use a web browser that supports at least 128-bit encryption when accessing our shopping cart. Most browsers are able to communicate with 128-bit encryption, which offers the highest level of encryption generally available today. Encryption provides the best protection when transmitting confidential data over the Internet.

Encryption is the process of converting information into a more secure format for transmission. The plain text is converted to scrambled code while being transmitted, and then decrypted back to plain text at the receiving end of the transmission.

You should update your browser and operating system with the latest security updates to help reduce your browser's vulnerability to online security threats. To update your browser, please download and install the latest version of either Internet Explorer, Firefox, Chrome, Opera or Safari.
