WHAT INFORMATION DO WE COLLECT?

When you purchase something from MaterialsAndTools.com, we collect the personal information you give us such as your name, address and email address as part of the buying process. We also may receive information about your device, including its location and its unique identifier.

When you browse our store, we also automatically receive your computer’s internet protocol (IP) address in order to provide us with information that helps us learn about your browser and operating system.

COOKIES

Cookies are packets of data. When you visit our website, our server sends a cookie to your device. Your device stores it in a file located in your web browser. The purpose of a cookie is to track your activity on our website. For example, cookies keep track of the items which you place in your shopping cart. You can prevent your browser from accepting cookies. To find out how, use the Help feature on your browser. Because cookies enable you to take advantage of the features on our site, we recommend that you leave them turned on. If you block our site’s cookies, you will not be able to add items to your cart or proceed to checkout.

WHAT DO WE DO WITH YOUR INFORMATION
We use your information to improve our store, customize your future shopping and communicate with you.
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 express consent, or provide you with an opportunity to say no.

You may withdraw your consent for us to contact you, or for the continued collection, use or disclosure of your information, at any time, by contacting us at customerservice@materialsandtools.com

DISCLOSURE

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

PAYMENT

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

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.

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.

When you click on links on our store, they may direct you away from our site. We are not responsible for the privacy practices of other sites and encourage you to read their privacy statements.

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 (SSL) technology which stores it on a secure server behind a firewall. Although no method of transmission over the Internet or electronic storage is 100% secure, we follow all PCI-DSS requirements.

If you are using a shared computer, be sure to sign off when you are finished. Otherwise, a subsequent user of the same computer may get unauthorized access to your account, change your password or personal information, and/or make purchases without your consent.

CHANGES TO THIS PRIVACY POLICY

We reserve the right to modify this privacy policy at any time, so please review it frequently. Changes and clarifications will take effect immediately upon their posting on the website. If we make material changes to this policy, we will notify you here that it has been updated, so that you are aware of what information we collect, how we use it, and under what circumstances, if any, we use and/or disclose it.

If our store is acquired or merged with another company, your information may be transferred to the new owners so that they or we may continue to sell products to you.

QUESTIONS AND CONTACT INFORMATION

If you would like to: access, correct, amend or delete any personal information we have about you, register a complaint, or simply want more information contact our Privacy Compliance Officer at customerservice@materialsandtools.com
