Privacy Statement

Updated 8/14/2018

We are committed to protecting your privacy. Authorized employees within The Home Place of Kansas City, LLC (hereafter “the Company”) will use information voluntarily provided by individual customers only for the purposes of fulfilling orders. We may contact you via email with questions about your order, and we will use your address to ship your products to you. We will contact you via email with sales or promotions only if you opt in to our email newsletter on your own. We regularly review our systems and data to ensure the best possible service to our customers.

We will not sell, share, or rent your personal information to any third party or use your e-mail address for unsolicited mail. Any emails sent by the Company will be in connection with the provision of agreed services and products.  The Company takes reasonable measures to help protect information about you from loss, theft, misuse and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration and destruction.

To fulfill your order, you must provide the Company with certain information, such as your name, email address, postal address, payment information (which we store and process via Shopify Payments, powered by Stripe), and the details of the product that you’re ordering. You may also choose to provide additional personal information (e.g., for a custom order) if you contact the Company directly.

Information Sharing and Disclosure
Information about our customers is important to our business. We share your personal information for very limited reasons and in limited circumstances, as follows:

Service providers. We engage certain trusted third parties to perform functions and provide services to our shop, such as delivery companies, payment processors, and email marketing services. We will share your personal information with these third parties, but only to the extent necessary to perform these services or if you have given us consent to add you to our email list. Our Service Providers include MailchimpUSPSStripe, and PayPal. Please visit these service providers by clicking on their names to view their privacy policies.

Business transfers. If we sell or merge The Company, we may disclose your information as part of that transaction, only to the extent permitted by law.

Compliance with laws. We may collect, use, retain, and share your information if we have a good faith belief that it is reasonably necessary to: (a) respond to legal process or to government requests; (b) enforce agreements, terms and policies; (c) prevent, investigate, and address fraud and other illegal activity, security, or technical issues; or (d) protect the rights, property, and safety of my customers, or others.

Social Sharing Features
Our website offers social sharing features and other integrated tools (such as the Facebook "like" button and a Pinterest button), which let you share actions you take on our webpages and products with other media, and vice versa. Your use of such features enables the sharing of information with your friends or the public, depending on the settings you establish with the entity that provides the social sharing feature. For more information about the purpose and scope of data collection and processing in connection with social sharing features, please visit the privacy policies of the entities that provide these features. 

Advertising and Analytics Services Provided by Others
We may allow others to serve advertisements on our behalf across the Internet and to provide analytics services. These entities, such as Google Analytics, Facebook Pixels and Pinterest Tags, may use cookies, web beacons and other technologies to collect information about your use of our website and other websites, including your IP address web browser, pages viewed, time spent on pages, links clicked and conversion information. This information may be used by The Company and others to, among other things, analyze and track data, determine the popularity of certain content, deliver advertising and content targeted to your interests on our website and other websites, and better understand your online activity. For more information about interest-based ads, or to opt out of having your web browsing information used for behavioral advertising purposes by companies that participate in the Digital Advertising Alliance, please visit www.aboutads.info/choices.

Cookies
Most web browsers are set to accept cookies by default. If you prefer, you can usually choose to set your browser to remove or reject browser cookies. Please note that if you choose to remove or reject cookies, this could affect the availability or functionality of our website.  

We use cookies on thehomeplacekc.com for a number of purposes. They help us provide you with a good experience when you browse our website and also allow us to improve our site. By continuing to browse the site, you are agreeing to our use of cookies.  Since we are hosted by Shopify, you can get more information about the specific cookies our website uses at https://www.shopify.com/legal/cookies.

Data Retention
We will retain personal data we collect from you where we have justifiable business need to do so, and/or for as long as it is needed to fulfill the purposes outlined in this Privacy Policy, unless a longer retention period is required by law, such as for tax, legal, or accounting purposes.

You can request deletion of your personal data at any time, and we will consider your request in accordance with applicable laws.

We may store and process your information through third-party hosting services in the US and other jurisdictions. As a result, we may transfer your personal information to a jurisdiction with different data protection and government surveillance laws than your jurisdiction. If we are deemed to transfer information about you outside of the EU, we rely on Privacy Shield as the legal basis for the transfer. As with existing law, the GDPR requires that certain safeguards be put in place when transferring personal data outside the EU. Shopify has self-certified to the EU-US and Swiss-US Privacy Shield, which allows us to lawfully transfer EU and Swiss personal data to our US-based datacenters. You can read more about Shopify’s Privacy Shield certifications here: https://www.shopify.com/legal/privacy.

Our payment processor is Shopify Payments, which is powered by Stripe. Stripe’s services in Europe are provided by a Stripe affiliate—Stripe Payments Europe Limited (“Stripe Payments Europe”)—an entity located in Ireland. In providing Stripe Services, Stripe Payments Europe transfers personal data to Stripe, Inc. in the US. To ensure the adequate protection of personal data, Stripe has certified to the EU-U.S. and Swiss-U.S. Privacy Shield Framework. Stripe’s Privacy Shield Policy is available here: https://stripe.com/privacy-shield-policy.

In addition to Privacy Shield, Stripe continues to employ additional compliance measures to ensure an adequate level of protection of personal data transferred outside the European Economic Area.

Stripe’s aim is to ensure that it remains compliant with European data protection laws and also to assist users in doing so. If you have additional questions, please contact privacy@stripe.com.

Your Rights
If you reside in certain territories, including the EU, you have a number of rights in relation to your personal information. While some of these rights apply generally, certain rights apply only in certain limited cases. We describe these rights below:

Access.You may have the right to access and receive a copy of the personal information we hold about you by contacting us using the contact information below.

Change, restrict, delete.You may also have rights to change, restrict use of, or delete your personal information. Absent exceptional circumstances (for example, a requirement to store data for legal reasons), we will generally delete your personal information upon request.

Object. You can object to (i) our processing of some of your information based on legitimate interests and (ii) receiving marketing messages from us after providing your express consent to receive them. In such cases, we will delete your personal information unless we have compelling and legitimate grounds to continue using that information or if it is needed for legal reasons.

Complain. If you reside in the EU and wish to raise a concern about The Company’s use of your information (and without prejudice to any other rights you may have), you have the right to do so with your local data protection authority.

If you have any questions or concerns, you may contact The Company at thehomeplacekc@gmail.com or by mail at:
