Your personal data would be protected by our site on the basis of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). COLDFIRE strives to work closely with European Data Protection Authorities (DPAs) in order to ensure that we appropriately handle information received from our users. We will respond diligently and appropriately to requests from DPAs about the Corporate Rules and COLDFIRE’s compliance with privacy laws and regulations.

SECTION 2 – CONSENT

How do you get my consent?

When you provide us with personal information to complete a transaction, verify your credit card, place an order, arrange for a delivery or return a purchase, we imply that you consent to us collecting it and using it for that specific reason only.

If we ask for your personal information for a secondary reason, like marketing, we will either ask you directly for your expressed consent, or provide you with an opportunity to say no.

How do I withdraw my consent?

SECTION 3 – DISCLOSURE

We may disclose your personal information if we are required by law (General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) to do so or if you violate our Terms of Service.

SECTION 4 – COLDFIRE online store

Our online store “COLDFIRE” is hosted on Shopify Inc. platform. They provide us with the online e-commerce platform that allows us technically 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.

Payments.

If you choose a direct payment gateway to complete your purchase, then Shopify stores your credit card data. We offer two payment methods for your orders – through the PayPal platform and using major credit cards via the payment gateway of ‘paymill’ (for more information please visit www.paymill.com). Your credit card data 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 5 – 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 in 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 your personal information will be handled by these providers.

In particular, remember that certain providers may be located in, or may 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.

As an example, if you are located in Canada and your transaction is processed by a payment gateway located in the United States, then your personal information used in completing that transaction may be subject to disclosure under United States legislation, including the Patriot Act.

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 Policy or our website’s Terms of Service.

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, we follow all PCI-DSS requirements and implement additional generally accepted industry standards.

SECTION 9 – ONSENTS, CUSTOMS DUTIES & EXPORT

If any licence or consent of any government or other authority is required for the acquisition, carriage or use of the Products by you, you shall obtain such licence or consent at your own expense and if necessary produce evidence to us on demand. Failure to do so shall not entitle you to withhold or delay payment of the price. Any additional expenses or charges incurred by us resulting from such failure shall be met by you.

Products licensed or sold to you under these Terms may be subject to export control laws and regulations in the Territory or other relevant jurisdiction where you take delivery or use them. You shall be responsible for complying with those laws and will not do anything to breach them.

Items entering the European Economic Area (EEA) from outside over a certain value may be subject to customs charges (e.g. where costs are in excess of your personal import allowance). You may be subject to customs charges, import duties and taxes, levied when the Product reaches your specified destination. Any such additional charges for customs clearance or import duties or taxes must be met by you, since we have no control over what these charges are. You should contact the local customs office in the relevant jurisdiction for further information on customs policies or duties.

When you are making a Purchase, you may be given an option to prepay or not prepay import tariffs and customs duties that may be levied by the destination country, and any disbursement fees, advancement fees or similar fees that may be imposed by the shipper, broker, the customs authority of the destination country or other party (collectively, "Import Costs"). We will make commercially reasonable efforts to estimate the amount of Import Costs (said estimate, the "Estimate"). However, the Estimate may be more or less than the final actual amount of Import Costs due and payable. We have no control over the Import Costs and cannot always predict with 100% accuracy what the final actual amounts may be. For greater certainty, you should contact your local customs office for further information on the import tariffs and customs duties that may be applicable to your Purchase.

If you choose to prepay the Import Costs, you agree and acknowledge that (a) the actual Import Costs may be more or less than the Estimate and (b) you will NOT be asked to pay more money OR receive any refund in the case that the actual Import Costs differ from the Estimate.

If you choose to prepay the Import Costs contained in the Estimate, you agree and acknowledge that the receiving party in the Product’s country of ultimate destination remains ultimately responsible for making entry and properly declaring the merchandise to the appropriate customs authorities, paying any applicable customs duties/fees/taxes/charges, and/or satisfying any additional import-related requirements. You should contact the local customs authorities in the relevant jurisdiction for further information on the applicable customs requirements and procedures, duties, fees, taxes, and/or other charges that may be assessed against the Product.

If you choose to not prepay the Import Costs, you agree and acknowledge that (i) the actual Import Costs may be more or less than the Estimate; (ii) you (and not digital river, the broker, the shipper, the supplier or any other party) must bear the responsibility of paying all actual Import Costs; (iii) in the case that any entity other than you must pay some or all of the actual Import Costs on your behalf to effect customs clearance, you will reimburse (upon request) that entity in full for the actual Import Costs paid on your behalf; and (iv) failure by you to pay Import Costs in a timely manner may not only cause delays beyond our original delivery estimates, but also may put you at risk of potential liability for tariffs and other fee.
