It is Bioholography’s policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our website.
WHAT DO WE DO WITH YOUR INFORMATION?
When you purchase something from our store, as part of the buying and selling process, we collect the personal information you give us such as your name, address and email address.
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.
Like most website operators, Bioholography collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. Bioholography’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Bioholography’s visitors use its website. From time to time, Bioholography may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information
Certain visitors to Bioholography’s website choose to interact with Bioholography in ways that require Bioholography to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Bioholography gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, for those who wish to receive Bioholography updates via email, we collect their emails. In each case, Bioholography collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfil the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with Bioholography. Bioholography does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.
Bioholography may collect statistics about the behaviour of visitors to its website. For instance, Bioholography may monitor the most popular pages on the site or use spam screened by the Akismet service to help identify spam. Bioholography may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, Bioholography does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.
Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information
Bioholography discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on Bioholography’s behalf or to provide services available at Bioholography’s website, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using Bioholography’s website, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. Bioholography will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, Bioholography discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when Bioholography believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Bioholography, third parties or the public at large.
If you are a subscriber on Bioholography’s website and have supplied your email address, Bioholography may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what’s going on with Bioholography and our services. We primarily use our various social media platforms to communicate this type of information, so we expect to keep this type of email to a minimum. If you send us a request (for example via a support email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users. Bioholography takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.

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.

If you choose a direct payment gateway to complete your purchase, then WooCommerce 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.
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 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.
As an example, if you are located in Canada and your transaction is processed by a payment gateway located in the United States, then your personal information used in completing that transaction may be subject to disclosure under United States legislation, including the Patriot Act.
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.
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.

You acknowledge that such transfers may occur, and that any acquirer of Bioholography may continue to use your personal information as set forth in this policy.
