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.
You should ensure that all Personal Data submitted to us is complete, accurate and true. Failure on your part to do so may result in our inability to provide you with the Products and Services you have requested.
SECTION 3 - HOW DO YOU GET MY CONSENT?
When you provide us with your personal information to complete a transaction, verify your credit card, place an order, arrange for delivery or return a purchase, we imply that you consent to our collecting it and using it for that specific reason only.
Email marketing: We offer you the chance to receive news and updates which, depending on your preferences, we will discuss with you by phone or send to you via email, SMS and/or direct mail. These include alerts for new products, features, editorials, improvements, special offers, contests, events of interest, and one-off marketing promotions. If we ask for your personal information for a secondary reason, like marketing, we will either ask you directly for your consent or provide you with an opportunity to opt-out of receiving these updates, if you wish.
Marketing communications you subscribe to will only be sent by our Group.
How do I withdraw my consent?
You have the right to ask us not to use your personal information for marketing. At all times, we will offer you the opportunity to unsubscribe from any service or update to which you have subscribed, should you change your mind. Whenever you receive direct marketing from us, we will tell you how to unsubscribe.

So'senz will generally be able to respond to such queries and/or requests within 30 days.
If you withdraw your consent to any or all use of your Personal Data, depending on the nature of your request, So'senz may not be able to continue to provide its products and/or services to you.
SECTION 4 – DISCLOSURE
In general, So'senz does not disclose information about you to third parties without your consent. However, there are exceptions:
If we receive requests for information from government departments, the police and other enforcement agencies, and there is a proper legal basis for providing your personal information, or if you violate our Terms of Service, we will provide it to the organisation asking for it.
SECTION 5 - 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.
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 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 6 - 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 with respect to the information we are required to provide to them for your purchase-related transactions.
For these providers, we recommend that you read their privacy policies so you can understand the manner in which these providers will handle your personal information.
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.
Your transaction is processed by a payment gateway located in the United States, and your personal information used in completing that transaction may be subject to disclosure under United States legislation, including the Patriot Act.
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.
SECTION 7 - SECURITY
To protect your personal data 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 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.
