Collection and Use of Personal Information
We do not request information from, nor do we send information to, persons known to be under 18 years of age.
The Bag Tag Studio collects personal information for purposes of processing orders and will include you in The Bag Tag Studio mailing list for updates on new product developments, special offers and notices. If you do not wish to receive these, please email email@example.com to advise us or click the 'Unsubscribe' link on any email received. Your personal information will not be put on the mailing list of any third parties. All personal information you provide to us will be treated as private and confidential and we will not sell, exchange or disclose this information to others, unless otherwise required to do so by law.
If you elect to pay online using your credit card, we require you to provide your credit card details. Your credit card details are not viewed by us at any time during the transaction, nor stored in our databases once payment has been finalised. They are securely captured and passed directly to the bank through our payment gateway provider protected by a 128-bit encryption SSL Certificate.
In some instances and if there is a suspected fraudulent transaction, we may be required to use personal information to verify payment details given to us. We may use names provided on an order to compare with information on credit cards. We use phone numbers and email addresses provided to us to communicate with customers about payments. We may also use customer addresses to check against credit card billing addresses.
We reserve the right to pass on any information relating to suspected fraudulent activity to relevant authorities.
