Privacy Policy

1) What do we do with your data?

When you purchase something from our website, as part of the buying and selling process, we collect the personal data you give us such as your name, address, and email address. This data is held in a range of paper-based and electronic records.

When you browse our store, much of the data we collect—such as the domain from which you access the internet, the date and time you access this website, and the internet address of the website from which you linked directly to this website—is statistical only and not personally identifiable. We use data about the number of visitors and their use of this website in aggregate form to make this website more useful and attractive to you.

2) Legal basis for processing personal data under the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)

If you are from the European Economic Area (EEA), Rhonda.H.Y.Mason’s legal basis for collecting and using the personal data described in this Privacy Policy depends on the personal data we collect and the specific context in which we collect it.

Rhonda.H.Y.Mason may process your personal data because:

  • We need to perform a contract with you.

  • You have given us permission to do so.

  • The processing is in our legitimate interests and it is not overridden by your rights.

  • It is required for payment processing purposes.

  • We need to comply with the law.

3) Consent

When you provide us with personal data 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 data 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.

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 data, at anytime, by contacting us at hello@rhonda.mason.com.au.

6) Stripe

If you choose Stripe's direct payment gateway to complete your purchase, then Stripe stores your credit card data. 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 data 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 data by our store and its service providers.

7) Third-party services

In general, the third-party providers used by us will only collect, use, and disclose your data 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 data 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 data will be handled by these providers.

In particular, remember that certain providers may be located in or have facilities that are located 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 data may become subject to the laws of the jurisdiction(s) in which that service provider or its facilities are located.

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.
