How long do we keep your information?
How do we keep your personal information secure?
We follow industry standards on information security management to safeguard sensitive information, such as financial information, customer details, and any other personal information entrusted to us.
Our credit card processor performs annual audits to ensure our handling of your credit card information aligns with industry guidelines. They are certified as a PCI DSS Level 1 compliant service provider, which is the highest level of compliance available, and their platform is audited annually by a third-party qualified security assessor.
No method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure. Therefore, we cannot guarantee the absolute security of your personal information.
How do we protect your personal information across borders?
Fangamer primarily stores personal information sent or collected via or by Fangamer in the United States, in the cloud, our servers, or the servers of our third parties and Service Providers. To facilitate global logistics, we may transfer and access such information from around the world. For example, your address may be required to be on a printed label of a package, and may be accessible by the applicable logistics provider who may be handling your package on its way to the destination country. Personal information may be accessible to law enforcement, customs enforcement, or other authorities pursuant to a lawful request. By providing information to Fangamer, you consent to the transfer and storage of personal information in these locations.
Anything else that should be known?
The Services are not targeted to children under the age of 13 or the age of majority in their territory. We do not knowingly collect or solicit personal data from children under 13 or the age of majority in their territory; if you are a child under 13 or the age of majority in your territory, please do not use the Services or send any personal data about yourself to us. If we learn we have collected personal data from a child under 13 or the age of majority in their territory, we will delete that information as quickly as possible. If you believe that a child under 13 or the age of majority in their territory may have provided us personal data, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org with subject “Personal Data Request” and identifying the specific data to delete.
Your California Privacy Rights: If you are a California resident, California Civil Code Section 1798.83 permits you to request information regarding the disclosure of your personal information to third parties for the third parties’ direct marketing purposes. Once a year you may email us at email@example.com with subject “Personal Data Request” to know if we have sent any of your information to third-parties for the purposes of direct marketing.
Do Not Track (“DNT”) is a privacy preference that users can set in certain web browsers. DNT is a way for users to inform websites and services that they do not want certain information about their webpage visits collected over time and across websites or online services. At this time, there is no general agreement on how companies like Fangamer should interpret DNT signals. Therefore, Fangamer does not recognize or respond to browser-initiated DNT signals, whether that signal is received on a computer or a mobile device.
