I am a one person business about me I’ve been trading on the internet, since 1993 !
A lot has changed and companies do collect information for advertising and analytics.

Your data needs to be shared !
There are two third parties who are able to share information about your purchases. The payment gateways PayPal and Stripe for card payments. This is essential to complete payments and orders.
Additionally if your order is sent by courier, then your contact details will be shared with them for obvious reasons.
If you submit a comment, then the comment will be attributed to you as a user. Comments are moderated.

How long is your data retained
As above, if you haven’t registered, or made a purchase, then your personal data isn’t collected or retained by me or my site.

Where I send your data
Currently the web craigmitchell.me is hosted in the Ireland, and the third parties, PayPal and stripe are based in the US. Hosting companies do collect browsing data for marketing purposes and analytics, but not personal data.
WordPress and woocommerce and also based in the United States
How I protect your data
I use SSL technology to verify the authenticity of my site, look for the padlock !
Administration login is protected by 2FA and account login for all customers and other users is protected by Google Captcha which helps make this site more secure and therefore protect user data.
Because I am a one person business, it’s easy to guard against internal data breaches.
I made a decision very early on for my online businesses that I would never store any financial information, credit card or PayPal, and this ensures that only very secure companies such as stripe and PayPal store this information on my behalf.
get in touch and I will investigate asap !
