Essential Information We Collect

In operating our store, it is essential for us to capture some information about your device, such as your IP address and information related to your visit when you browse our store. For example, this might include time-stamp, the last page or product you visited, the indication that you logged in. We do that in order to:

  • remember who you are after you log in so that you do not need to authenticate at each click;
  • monitor if our website is running with the high performance we are dedicated to providing;
  • let you browse between products without having to start back from the home page at each click;
  • remember if you put something in your shopping cart before you decide to checkout; and
  • control that your data is processed securely.

We call the information mentioned above "essential information" and we collect it through the use of cookies. Cookies are small text files that most websites use. A website places cookies in the web browser and then reads the information collected through the cookies every time the user performs an action. We use cookies. Without enabling this mechanism and this kind of cookies (first-party cookies), we could not provide you with the smooth experience that you expect while you are navigating.

This website also uses Google Analytics to collect non-personally identifiable (anonymous) user data about site visitors. We use this data to understand how users interact with our website and improve it. If you wish to opt out of Google Analytics tracking, you may do so by installing a browser plugin located here.

Order information you expressly provide

If you purchase a product or service from our store, we will need more specific information about you. To fully process your order and complete the work you requested, we need your personal data such as your first and last name, your email address and your billing address. We also use your contact and order information to send you communication related to the processing of your order. We will ask you to provide this information in our "checkout page" before letting you finalize your purchase with the payment.

Accounts

If you choose to create an account, we will remember your information and, if you decide to purchase again in the future, you won't have to provide all of your information over again -- you just have to log-in. If at any point you'd like to delete your account, just connect with us at the contact details at the bottom of the page.

Partial Purchases

If you have started to buy one of our products, but have not completed the purchase, you may have provided partial information, such as your email. In that case, we might send you an email to remind you about your interest. If you are not comfortable in receiving further emails of this kind, we will give you a simple opportunity to opt-out. Your privacy means a lot to us and we will stop sending you these communications right away.

Contact Forms

If you submit a contact form on our website, we collect the data shown on the contact form (typically name, email address and project details). This information is transmitted to us via email and is used solely to contact you about your project. Information submitted through our contact forms is not stored in our website database or used for marketing purposes.

Personalization

We also use some specific information related to your visit, such as the timestamp of your visit, the page or the product you viewed, where you are coming from (if you came to our store because you clicked on an advertisement or you just opened our direct link). This is very similar to the "essential information," but we use it to provide you with a personalized experience. The information on your visit provides us with insights on your interests and allows us to send you relevant communications. We capture this information through cookies, called a "beacon," that we allow you to block.

How do we process your information?

We use an external provider to run our store, BigCommerce. BigCommerce is based in the US and is a participant in the EU-US Privacy Shield Framework and committed to providing best-in-class service and data protection. You can check its participation in the Privacy Shield here on the official site of The International Trade Administration (ITA), U.S. Department of Commerce.

Through BigCommerce, we also use other, highly specialized external providers to provide the most competitive services. Our store is PCI-DSS compliant (a very strict industry standard with requirements for the security of credit card information), and we use Paypal, an accredited company, to process your credit card information.

Who we share your data with

We do not share site or user data with any partners or third parties unless you contract to do business with Duck Soup E-Commerce and give us permission to create a BigCommerce store account on your behalf.

How can you control your personal data?

If you are one of our customers who is in the EU, and we are specifically selling our products to the Member State where you are located, you have specific rights that we are honored to enforce without undue delay: Access, Correct, Erasure, Port, Object. If you cannot exercise your choice on your account page or if you do not have an account with us, please reach out to us, at the contact details at the bottom of this page. We will be more than happy to help.

How long do we keep your data?

We keep your data for as long as you have an account with us. We also keep some data for security investigation. Most importantly, we have specific obligations for fraud detection and tax reasons. Therefore, we might need to retain certain data even if you ask to delete it.

If you submit a contact form, we retain that data for as long as is necessary to respond to your message. After that, contact form data is deleted within six months.

Do we have any legal obligations when handling your data?

If required, we may need to share your personal information to comply with applicable legal obligations. We also may need to keep records for tax reasons or fraud detection.

Who can you reach out to for privacy matters?

You can contact Danielle Mead at [email protected]

Do you need to lodge a complaint?

If you have any privacy complaint, you have the right to lodge a complaint with our supervisory authority.

Any update?

If we update our Privacy Policy to reflect a change or improvement of our services or a new legal obligation, we will publish the new version on our website, and we will make it clear on our home page so it will be visible as you enter our store.
