INFORMATION WE SHARE WITH OTHERS AND YOUR PRIVACY RIGHTS

We contract with other companies to provide certain services, including credit card processing, shipping, email distribution, market research and promotions management. We provide these companies with only the information they need to perform their services and work closely with them to ensure that your privacy is respected and protected. These companies are prohibited by contract from using this information for their own marketing purposes or from sharing this information with anyone other than nativscandinavia.com.

COOKIES

A cookie is a small data file that is stored by your web browser on your computer. Cookies enable you to place an order on our web site. They also allow us to enhance and personalize your online shopping experience, so that the information you receive is more relevant to you.

For example, we use cookies to:

  • Remember what items are in your shopping bag;
  • Recognize you when you return to our web site;
  • Enable a faster checkout if you have created an account at nativscandinavia.com;
  • Study how our customers navigate through our web site and which products they request in site searches.

HOW WE USE EMAIL

When you provide us your e-mail address, we may send you e-mails necessary to process your order or respond to a request. For example, after you place an order at at nativscandinavia.com, you will receive an email confirmation.

It is our intent to send you promotional email (our e-mail newsletter) only if you have agreed to receive it. Instructions on how to unsubscribe are included in each edition of the newsletter.

SECURITY

It is our intent to protect against the loss, misuse or alteration of information that we have collected from you. We use a variety of current technologies and processes for protection of our customer data. We limit the information we provide to outside companies with whom we contract to only what they need to carry out their responsibilities.

When you make a purchase or create an account on our Web site, your transactional information is transmitted in a safe, encrypted format. Our website is powered by Squarespace, and our Commerce is provided by Stripe.

Stripe forces HTTPS for all services.

Stripe has been audited by a PCI-certified auditor, and is certified to PCI Service Provider Level 1. This is the most stringent level of certification available.

All card numbers are encrypted on disk with AES-256. Decryption keys are stored on separate machines. None of Stripe's internal servers and daemons are able to obtain plaintext card numbers; instead, they can just request that cards be sent to a service provider on a static whitelist. Stripe's infrastructure for storing, decrypting, and transmitting card numbers runs in separate hosting infrastructure, and doesn't share any credentials with Stripe's primary services (API, website, etc.).

 

PRIVACY OF CHILDREN ON OUR WEB SITE

Our Web site is not intended for use by children under the age of 13, and we do not knowingly collect personal information from children under the age of 13.

THANK YOU
