At times THING THING may retain third parties to process and analyse data collected eg information collected on the THING THING web sites, including personal information, solely to help improve THING THING’s products and web sites. In addition, if a product or service is ordered from THING THING then personal information may be shared with THING THING’s suppliers and other third parties to allow delivery of such product or service. These suppliers and other third parties are not authorised by THING THING to use personal information in any other way.

Our store is hosted on Shopify Inc. They provide us with the online e-commerce platform that allows us to sell our products and services to you.
Your data is stored through Shopify’s data storage, databases and the general Shopify application. They store your data on a secure server behind a firewall.
If you choose a direct payment gateway to complete your purchase, then Shopify 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.
