3. WHAT WE DO WITH THE INFORMATION WE COLLECT?

We may use the personal information provided and transfer it to verified third party Sellers, who will need it for the processing and shipping of your order.
We will retain the information we collect from you for a period of 10 years. After the expiry of this period we undertake to delete any information we have collected from you.
Aggregate information and information that does not personally identify you may be used in many ways. For example, Spin Shed may combine information about your usage patterns on the Website with similar information obtained from other users to help enhance our site and Services (e.g., to learn which pages are visited the most or what features Users find the most attractive). This information does not include any personal data and does not allow anyone to identify you individually.
We may use personally identifiable information collected on the Website (and you agree that we have the right to use such information) to:
- communicate with you with regards to our Services and products offered on the Website or otherwise;
- assist us with Website administration and troubleshooting;
- process e-commerce transactions.
Certain third parties who provide technical support for the operation of our Website – our Web hosting service for example – may also have access to such information. We will use your information only as permitted by law. We may also disclose your information in response to a court order, at other times when we believe we are reasonably required to do so by the applicable law, in connection with the collection of amounts you may owe to us, and/or to law enforcement authorities, whenever we deem it appropriate or necessary.
In the event that we sell or buy any business or assets, or in the event that Spin Shed is acquired by a third party, we may disclose your personal data to the prospective seller or buyer. Please note we may not provide you with notice prior to disclosure in such cases.
All payment card transactions made through the Shopify interface are processed using a secure online payment gateway (Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology) that encrypts your card details in a secure hosting environment. We do not hold your payment card details on the Spin Shed Ltd. server.
