Privacy Policy

SECTION 1 – WHAT DO WE DO WITH YOUR INFORMATION?

When you purchase something from our store, as part of the buying and selling process, we collect the personal information you give us such as your name, address, and email address.

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.

Email marketing (if applicable): With your permission, we may send you emails about our store, new products, and other updates.


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 our 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?

If after you opt-in, you change your mind, you may withdraw your consent for us to contact you, for the continued collection, use, or disclosure of your information, at any time, by contacting us using our contact page form.


SECTION 3 – DISCLOSURE

We may disclose your personal information if we are required by law to do so or if you violate our Terms of Service.


SECTION 4 – PAYMENT

If you choose a direct payment gateway to complete your purchase, 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.
For more insight, you may also want to read our Terms of Service.


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 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.

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 6 – SECURITY

To protect your personal 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). 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.


COOKIES: GENERAL

This Policy outlines how barley & birch uses cookies and other tracking technologies to run and deliver the service, and how you can choose which type of tracking to disable.

WHAT IS A COOKIE

A cookie is a small text file with an identifier sent by us to your computer or mobile device and stored in your browser. “Session-based” cookies last only while your browser is open and are then deleted. “Persistent” cookies last until you or your browser deletes them, or they expire. Cookies do not typically contain any personally identifiable information.

WHAT IS LOCAL STORAGE

Local storage is a component of the Web storage application programming interface. It is a method by which Web pages can store information inside your Web browser. Similar to cookies, this stored information exists even when you close a browser tab, surf away from the current website or close the main browser. But unlike cookies this data is not carried to the remote Web server unless sent explicitly by the web page. Local storage is often used to remember choices a user has made inside a Web application or to cache information to improve performance. Elements stored in browser Local storage is covered by this policy to the extent that the information stored in these elements is communicated back to the server.

MANAGING COOKIES AND LOCAL STORAGE

Most browsers allow you to refuse to accept cookies and to delete cookies. If you block cookies, you may not be able to use all the features on our website, or have a worse experience.

HOW WE USE COOKIES

Barley & birch uses cookies and local storage on our site (barleyandbirch.com and any subpages). Any browser visiting these sites will receive cookies from us. Barley & birch uses cookies and similar technologies in our Websites and Services that help us collect information needed to run and deliver the service.

Based on the requirements of the California Online Privacy Protection Act, MailerLite declares that it does not correspond to Do Not Track browser signals.

COOKIES THAT WE USE

We use cookies for the following purposes:

Authentication
We use local storage to identify you when you visit our website and to authenticate calls our web application makes to the
backend servers on your behalf. For example, if you’re signed in to barleyandbirch.com, this helps us show you the right information and
personalize your experience.

Analysis
We use cookies to help us analyze the usage patterns and performance of our website and services. We use services from Google
Analytics for this purpose.

Payment and Fraud Detection
We use cookies to enable easy payment processing and to detect fraud through our payment processor.

Integrations
We may use cookies in your browser to access and share content from third-party Integration Services that you choose to enable
in the Service. Some integrations will not work for users who have blocked third-party cookies in their browser, as it will then not
be possible for us to open the content from the integration service for them. (Cookies used for this purpose depending on which integration services you have enabled). We also use cookies to detect spam comments through Akismet, providing a more secure site experience for all.

We may make available integrations to other web-based services, allowing you to open those services inside barley & birch. In order to use third-party integrations in this category, it may be necessary for you to enable support for third-party cookies in your browser. The reason for this is that such integrations may depend on cookies to assert your identity and/or authenticate your access to any non-public assets opened through them (Amazon affiliate program, Woodpeckers Crafts affiliate program).
