Your personal data is contained behind secured networks and is only accessible by a limited number of persons who have special access rights to such systems, and are required to keep the information confidential. In addition, all sensitive/credit information you supply is encrypted via Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology.

All transactions are processed through a gateway provider and are not stored or processed on our server.

Do we use ‘cookies’?

Yes. Cookies are small files that a site or its service provider transfers to your computer’s hard drive through your Web browser (if you allow) that enables the site’s or service provider’s systems to recognize your browser and capture and remember certain information. For instance, we use cookies to help us remember and process the items in your shopping cart. They are also used to help us understand your preferences based on previous or current site activity, which enables us to provide you with improved services. We also use cookies to help us compile aggregate data about site traffic and site interaction so that we can offer better site experiences and tools in the future.

We use cookies to:
  • Help remember and process the items in the shopping cart.
  • Understand and save user’s preferences for future visits.
  • Keep track of advertisements.
  • Compile aggregate data about site traffic and site interactions in order to offer better site experiences and tools in the future. We may also use trusted third-party services that track this information on our behalf.

You can choose to have your computer warn you each time a cookie is being sent, or you can choose to turn off all cookies. You do this through your browser settings. Since each browser is a little different, look at your browser’s Help Menu to learn the correct way to modify your cookies.

We do not sell, trade, or otherwise transfer your personal data to outside parties except as set forth below.

If you make a purchase on the site, we will provide the contact information you have provided to the seller of the products you are purchasing so that they can ship the products to you.

We may share users’ information with our third party agents, contractors, or service providers who are hired to perform services on our behalf. Below is an illustrative list of functions for which we may use third-party service providers and the names of the providers we may use to perform these functions:

  • Analytics services (e.g., Google Inc.)
  • Hosting and content delivery network services (e.g., Liquid Web)
  • Payment provider services (e.g., Stripe)

When Chamfr engages a service provider/vendor to perform activities that may require access to personal data, it will take steps to ensure that the service provider acts in accordance with our existing policies and procedures.  At a minimum, Chamfr will enter into a written agreement with the third party requiring the third party (1) to comply with applicable federal, state laws, and international law, and (2) to maintain secure systems in the transmission of information to and from Chamfr.

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. These 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 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 data used in completing that transaction may be subject to disclosure under United States legislation, including the Patriot Act.

Once you leave our site or are redirected to a third-party website or application, you are no longer governed by this Privacy Policy or our site’s Beta Agreement.

We may disclose personal data about you as required or permitted by law and/or to comply with a judicial proceeding, court order, or legal process served on our site or services. To the extent permitted by applicable law, we also may disclose personal data about you in response to a request from law enforcement agencies, regulators or other public agencies (including schools or children services) or if we believe such disclosure may prevent a crime, facilitate an investigation related to public safety, protect the security or integrity of our site and services or enable us to take precautions against liability or to protect our rights.

We may disclose or otherwise transfer information about our users, including personal data, to an acquirer, successor, or assignee as part of any merger, acquisition, sale of assets, or similar transaction, or in the event of an insolvency, bankruptcy, or receivership in which information is transferred to one or more third parties as one of our business assets.
