What Information Do We Collect and How Do We Use It?
Mil Boutique collects customer information in an effort to improve our customer's shopping experience and to communicate with our customers about our products, services, and promotions. This information will also enhance and improve the performance and accuracy of our operations and website. When purchasing products from our store we collect information such as your name, e-mail, postal address, and credit card numbers. In addition, we maintain a record of product interests, purchases, and whatever else might enable us to enhance and personalize our customer's shopping experience. We also monitor traffic patterns to improve our website design and products.
MilBoutique.com is hosted on Shopify Inc. which provides an online e-commerce platform that allows us to sell our products. Our customer's information is stored through Shopify’s data storage, databases, and the general Shopify application. All information is stored on a secure server behind a firewall. To protect our customer's 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. Credit card 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 Payment Card Industry Data Secure Standard (PCI-DSS) requirements and implement additional generally accepted industry standards.
If a direct payment gateway is chosen to complete a purchase, then Shopify stores the credit card information. It is encrypted through the PCI-DSS. The purchase transaction information is stored only as long as is necessary to complete a purchase transaction. After completed, the 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. The PCI-DSS requirements help ensure the secure handling of credit card information by our store and its service providers.
