Birdwell California!, LLC DBA Birdwell Beach Britches (“Birdwell Beach Britches,” “we,” or “us”) respects your privacy. This Privacy Statement describes the types of information we may collect from you when you visit www.birdwell.com and all BIRDWELL BEACH BRITCHES-owned websites and domains, or use our other products and services that include an authorized link to this Privacy Statement (collectively, the “Website and Services”), how we use the information we collect, with whom we share it, and the choices we offer you regarding our collection and use of such information. If we add any new features or tools to our Website and Services, they will also be subject to this policy.
Our online store is hosted on Shopify Inc. They provide us with the online e-commerce platform that allows us to sell our products 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.
If you choose a direct payment gateway to complete your purchase, then Shopify stores your credit card data. It is encrypted in accordance with 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.
As described in the Shopify’s Privacy Statement, Shopify uses a number of machine learning algorithms and forms of automated decision-making that may involve Personal Information (defined below) about you. For example, Shopify uses automated decision-making to help us avoid fraudulent transactions. Most of these algorithms are not fully automated and include some human intervention (for example, customer risk and fraud scores are provided to us, and we must intentionally decide how to act on them). However, Shopify uses a small subset of fully automated fraud screening blacklists, which, if Shopify believes a transaction was made using stolen or fraudulent payment information, may stop one of our customers from completing a transaction—but only for a period of between a few hours and a few days.
2. INFORMATION WE COLLECT
When we use the term “Personal Information” in this policy, it means any information related to an identifiable individual. We may collect Personal Information about you from various sources, such as:
- Directly from you when you access and use the Website and Services, such as when you register for an account, access certain features or content, or order or pay for products;
- Social networks through which you may access the Website and Services or otherwise interact with us; and
- Our related entities, affiliates, service providers, business partners, and other third parties.
The Personal Information we may collect about you may include, without limitation:
- Contact information, such as name, company name, shipping and billing address, email address, and phone number;
- Login information, such as username, password, and security questions and answers; and
- Payment and financial information, such as cardholder name, billing address, payment card number, expiration date, and authentication code.
Instead of creating a separate log-in on our Website and Services to use to purchase products, manage your information and preferences, etc., we may enable you to log into the Website and Services using a social media account. Please refer to the privacy settings of the applicable social media platform or application to determine how you may manage the interactivity between BIRDWELL BEACH BRITCHES and your social media account.
If you choose to log in with a social media account, you will be asked whether you agree that the social media provider may provide certain information to BIRDWELL BEACH BRITCHES, such as your friends or contacts lists, photographs, status and updates.
Social media networks operate independently from BIRDWELL BEACH BRITCHES, and we are not responsible for social media networks’ interfaces or privacy or security practices. All of this social media profile information is made available to BIRDWELL BEACH BRITCHES by the social media provider due to the way the social sign-on configuration works. However, we do not use any information except that which is necessary to allow us to authenticate you for secure shopping on our Website and Services. If you do not want your information to be shared with BIRDWELL BEACH BRITCHES by the social media provider, then you can simply sign in to your BIRDWELL BEACH BRITCHES account using account credentials created on the Website and Services, instead of your social media account credentials.
In addition, if you access and use the Website and Services on a mobile device and your mobile device’s settings allow it, we may collect information about your real-time location. Please see the “Your Choices” section below for information regarding how to limit the location information that we may collect when you access and use the Website and Services on a mobile device.
When you use the Website and Services, we may also collect certain information by automated means, such as cookies. A “cookie” is a text file that websites send to a visitor’s computer or other Internet-connected device to uniquely identify the visitor’s browser or to store information or settings in the browser. Certain features of the Website and Services may use local shared objects (or Flash cookies) to collect and store information about your preferences and how you interact with the Website and Services. We may also use third-party analytics tools (such as Google Analytics and Hotjar) that collect information about use of the Website and Services and user traffic. The information we may collect by automated means may include, without limitation:
- Information about the devices you use to access the Website and Services (such as the IP address and the type of the device, operating system, network connection, and web browser);
- Dates, times, and duration of use of the Website and Services (including whether you are a repeat or first time visitor); and
- Information on actions taken when using the Website and Services (such as page views and website navigation patterns).
The information we collect helps us to improve and personalize our Website and Services, including by enabling us to identify and authenticate users, and to help answer any questions you may have.
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.
From time to time, we provide a limited set of information to service providers who help us develop and aggregate information on our customers’ demographics, which is then used to display advertisements to other individuals likely to have similar interests. We and our service providers take steps to minimize the use of any Personal Information (if Personal Information is needed at all), including, where possible, transferring a hashed set of data that can only be used to correlate to other data that the service provider already has.
For our third-party providers, which we list here, we recommend that you read their privacy policies so you can understand the manner in which Personal Information will be handled by these providers. In particular, remember that certain providers may be located in or have facilities that are located 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.
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. When you click on links on our store, they may direct you away from our site. We are not responsible for the privacy practices of other sites and encourage you to read their privacy statements.
