Also we collect information for the purpose of:

SECTION 2 – CONSENT

When you provide us with personal information 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 information 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.

You may withdraw any consent you previously provided to us, or object at any time on legitimate grounds, to the processing of your personal information, at anytime, by contacting us at highwaistedbikinishop@gmail.com.

 

SECTION 3 – DISCLOSURE

We may disclose your personal information if we are required by law to do so or if you violate our Terms of Service.

Please note that we do not rent lists, or sell or otherwise disclose personal information we collect about you.

 

SECTION 4 – WordPress.com

Our store is hosted on WordPress.com. They provide us with the online e-commerce platform that allows us to sell our products and services to you.

Your data is stored through WordPress’s data storage, databases and the general WordPress application. They store your data on a secure server behind a firewall.

Payment:

If you choose a direct payment gateway to complete your purchase, then Wix 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.

 

SECTION 5 – THIRD-PARTY SERVICES

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

In particular, remember that certain providers may be located in or have facilities that are located in 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.

Links may be provided by us to other websites for your convenience and information and these websites may operate independently from us. Linked sites may have their own privacy notices or policies, which we strongly suggest you review if you visit any linked websites. To the extent any linked websites you visit are not owned or controlled by us, we are not responsible for the sites’ content, any use of the sites, or the privacy practices of the sites.

So 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.

 

SECTION 6 – SECURITY

To protect your personal information, we take reasonable precautions and follow industry best practices to make sure it is not inappropriately lost, misused, accessed, disclosed, altered or destroyed.

If you provide us with your credit card information, the information is encrypted using secure socket layer technology (SSL) and stored with a AES-256 encryption.  Although no method of transmission over the Internet or electronic storage is 100% secure, we follow all PCI-DSS requirements and implement additional generally accepted industry standards.

Return Policy

WE ARE SORRY…..

We understand that it can be a challenge to purchase apparel online and we want you to be completely satisfied with your order but since bikini are intimate wear please understand that we DO NOT offer exchanges or returns due to wrong fitting. Most our bikinis are reversible therefore we cant provide any protective stickers.

Please refer to the SIZE CHART before making a purchase. Also, you can contact us at highwaistedbikinishop@gmail.com if you need any help with deciding the correct size. 

Please note that despite using high quality materials all colors fade in time due to wearing, swimming, sunbathing…it’s important that you always rinse bikini after each use in lukewarm or cold water and hang flat without wrinkles to dry in shade! If you leave wet bikinis too long cramped without drying colors may leak!

Also beware that tanning oils may stain delicate materials, there will be no returns or exchanges in those cases. Usage of light and bright colors in jacuzzi or any kind of hot water bathing isn’t recommended.

Note that colors on your computer or phone screen may be slightly different to reality (even though we do our best to match the real product) and that all color shades can slightly differ in each production run.
