The personal data we collect on our store at checkout is used only for the purposes of shipping out your product, and for internal accounting purposes.
If you sign up to our MailChimp mailing list your email will be used to send out weekly post summary emails, and information about new products.
When visitors leave comments on the site we collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.
Facebook, Twitter and other social media logins will be used by the discuz comments plugin and nothing else.
If you upload images to the website or forums, you should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included. Visitors to the website can download and extract any location data from images on the website.
How long we retain your data
If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.
For users that register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.
What rights you have over your data
If you have an account on this site, or have left comments, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.
If you want to delete your user data, write to [email protected].
We also use your data for advertising purposes.
We use third-party advertising companies who serve ads to help keep content free. For these partners, we put additional restrictions on how your data can be used to prevent it from misuse. For instance, we do not allow these partners to take your information for profiling and personalizing ads on other sites.
Your address details will be provided only to our professional shipping partners at sendfromchina.com or Amazon.com for order fulfillment. Payment processors such as PayPal may collect your data too.
We will not share your data with any other third parties unless we received authorization to do so.

This cookie does not store any user information; it's just used to limit the number of requests that have to be made to doubleclick.net.
Used to count the number of page impressions for ad display purposes.
The __cfduid cookie is used to identify individual clients behind a shared IP address and apply security settings on a per-client basis. For example, if the visitor is in a coffee shop where there are a bunch of infected machines, but the specific visitor's machine is trusted (e.g. because they've completed a challenge within your Challenge Passage period), the cookie allows us to identify that client and not challenge them again. It does not correspond to any user ID in your web application, and does not store any personally identifiable information.
