Do we use cookies?

Yes; we use cookies and they are small data files that websites place on your computer, laptop or mobile device.

We use cookies to help us remember and process the items in your shopping cart, understand and save your preferences for future visits, keep track of advertisements and compile aggregate data about site traffic and site interaction so that we can offer better site experiences and tools in the future. We may contract with third-party service providers to assist us in better understanding our site visitors.

What Cookies do we use?

Affiliate Cookies. When you click through to one of our retail partner websites, your browser redirects you to an affiliate network which may add a cookie on your computer. The cookie stores tracking information so any purchases made on their website, will result in the retailer reading this information and knowing where the lead was generated and at which point we can raise a donation for your school. We recommend that you enable cookies in your browsers to ensure that any purchases via partners are recorded.

By continuing to use our website you consent to third party affiliate networks and retail partners as featured on our website using cookies for the purpose of tracking and raising donations.

Strictly necessary Cookies. These are Cookies that are required for the operation of our website. They are necessary for the safety, security and integrity of the site. For example, they help support the structure of the pages that are displayed to you, help to improve navigation and allow you to return to pages you have previously visited. This type of Cookie only lasts for the duration of the time you are visiting the website. When you leave the website they are deleted automatically.

Performance Cookies or analytical Cookies. They allow us to recognise and count the number of visitors and to see how visitors move around our website when they are using it. This helps us to improve the way our website works, for example, by ensuring that users are finding what they are looking for easily. The data is aggregated and anonymised, which means we cannot identify you as an individual.

If you prefer, you can stop Cookies being used on your device by activating the setting on your browser that allows you to block the deployment of all or some Cookies. Please visit www.allaboutcookies.org to find out how. Please note, if you use your browser settings to block Cookies you may not be able to access all or parts of our site.

Information regarding our website platform.

Our site is hosted on Shopify Inc. They provide us with the online e-commerce platform that allows us to sell our products and provide our online services to you. Your data is stored through Shopify’s data storage, databases and the general Shopify application. They store your data on a secure server behind a firewall for security.

Payment using the Shopify Inc Platform:

If you choose a direct payment gateway to complete your purchase, then Shopify stores your credit card data. It 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 information 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 information by our store and its service providers.

Do we disclose any information to outside parties?

We do not sell, trade or otherwise transfer to outside parties your personal identifiable information. This does not include trusted third party suppliers who assist us in operating our website, conducting our business, or servicing you, so long as those parties agree to keep this information confidential and in some cases agree to sign a third party data processing contract if required. We may also release your information when we believe release is appropriate to comply with the law, enforce our site policies, or protect ours or other rights, property, or safety.

Sell it for school may retain customer personal data for periods of time for legal, audit and compliance purposes only.
