~OrganicalBotanicals.com Complies Fully with all GDPR Standards~


DATA PROTECTION:

First, just to be clear, OrganicalBotanicals.com does NOT Process or Store ANY ‘Sensitive” Information such as Credit Cards, or any other Financial Data WHATSOEVER. This is why we ONLY accept Payment by sending you to a Trusted 3rd Party (i.e.: Paypal™) to Process Payment, where you are then Redirected back to our Website.

 

EVEN THOUGH WE ARE FULLY PCI COMPLIANT AND Protect All DATA Transmissions with 256-Bit SSL and HSTS Technology; for the Security and Safety of our *Customer’s Data, we only use Reputable, and Trusted 3rd Party Payment Processors for all Transactions. (i.e.: Paypal™)

This mainly has to do with the fact that OrganicalBotanicals.com does NOT Store, Log, or Process ANY“Sensitive Data” entered by the *User” during Checkout; This means we DO NOT Store it, nor can we Access it- IF WE TRIED!


HERE ARE the THREE MAIN TYPES OF “DATA”:

SENSITIVE: Data usually contains Financial, Payment, and/or Credit Card info

PERSONAL: Data usually includes info that can Identify a User such as Name, Phone #, Address, etc.

BROWSER: Data NEVER includes ANY info that can Personally Identify a User.


WHAT “DATA” do WE have ACCESS to??

SENSITIVE (NO access) We have ZERO Access to your ‘Sensitive’ Data

PERSONAL (for shipping purposes ONLY -NO Spam)

BROWSER (you can block via Browser “Privacy” settings)

  • Sensitive DataDefined: Payment Data, Credit/Debit Card Numbers, Transaction Data, Transaction History, Financial Information, and/or Funding Institution/Bank Account types-
    • THIS DATA IS ONLY STORED and PROCESSED BY the one of the Trusted Payment Processors– (i.e.: Paypal™)
      • Then, you are then Redirected back to our Website. We then, get Paid from Paypal after they deduct their Processing Fees (from US, not you)

  • “Personal” Data: Defined: Your Shipping Address, Name, Phone #, and email are Collected for the ONE-TIME Purpose of Shipping your Order to you. It is then DESTROYED upon Receipt of your Parcel (unless you elected to Store your Address for Future Orders- in which case, such Data is NEVER Published publicly. Nor is it ever Sold, Shared, Exchanged, or Given to ANY 3rd Parties- EVER!!
    • Additionally, employees of OrganicalBotanicals.com do NOT have Access to this Data. Only the Site Owner can View it, but still CANNOT see any Passwords you Created upon Account Creation. If you lose it, a new one is Randomly Generated, Automatically by our Content Management System (CMS), Wordpress, then sent to your email)

  • “Browser Data” Defined: Browser Data only includes Temporary Bits of Data such as “Cookies”, which are usually stored on the User’s Browser in a Temporary ‘Cache’. This may include Style sheets, Icons, Images (which help Pages Load Faster), or Breadcrumbs (which remember Items you have in your Cart from One Page to the Next).
    • There may be times we View this Data for Traffic Analytics, Split Testing, and Search Engine OptimizationREMEMBER: “Browser Data” is different than “Personal Data”, as it does NOT reveal ANYTHING “Personally Identifiable”
      • FOR EXAMPLE: All we see is: “a ‘Visitor’, from Seattle Wa, landed on the HOME Page from Pinterest.com/pin/….,and stayed for 0:45 seconds…”

We have ZERO Access to Sensitive Data and Passwords–NONE!
