ARTICLE 5 - SERVICES PROVIDED BY THIRD PARTIES


In general, the third-party providers we use will only collect, use and disclose your information to the extent necessary to be able to perform the services they provide to us.

However, some third-party service providers, such as payment gateways and other payment transaction processors, have their own privacy policies regarding the information we are required to provide to them for your purchase transactions.

With respect to these providers, we recommend that you carefully read their privacy policies so that you can understand how they will process your personal information.

It should not be forgotten that some suppliers may be located or have facilities in a jurisdiction other than yours or ours. So if you decide to pursue a transaction that requires the services of a third-party supplier, your information could then be governed by the laws of the jurisdiction in which that supplier is located or the jurisdiction in which its facilities are located.

For example, if you are located in Canada and your transaction is processed by a payment gateway located in the United States, the information belonging to you that was used to complete the transaction could be disclosed under United States law, including the Patriot Act.

Once you leave the site of our shop or are redirected to the website or the application of a third party, you are no longer governed by this Privacy Policy or by the Terms and Conditions of Sale and Use of our website.
