Information Security

To protect your personal information, we take a reasonable precaution and follow industry best practices to ensure, to the best of our ability, that it is not inappropriately lost, accessed, misused, altered, disclosed, or destroyed.

All sensitive/credit information you supply is transmitted via secure socket layer (SSL) technology and stored with AES-256 encryption, a link between a web server and browser. This link ensures that all data passed between the web and server and browsers remain private. SSL creates trust by developing a secure connection.

We analyze our data collection and storage practices, including physical security measures, in order to guard against possible data breaches. Unfortunately, no method of transmission over the Internet or electronic storage is 100% secure.


Retention Period of Personal Information

We store your personal data only as long as necessary to fulfill the purpose it is being processed for. After reaching mentioned purpose, we will destroy your personal data. To define the appropriate retention and preservation time for your personal information, we consider the amount, nature, and sensitivity of the managed data, the potential risk of disclosure of your personal information, and the purposes for which we process your personal data. In any case, we do not store your personal data for more than two years, and if it is possible, we will try to reduce the personal data that we manage through this period of time.


Right of Personal Information

You have the right to request and access, opt-out, remove or modify your personal information. If you would like to exercise any of these rights, please contact us at alison_siaotong@hotmail.com.


Hosting of Personal Information

Our company is hosted on the Shopify.ca platform. Shopify.ca provides us with the online platform that allows us to sell our products and services to you. Your data may be stored through Shopify.ca’s data storage, databases, and the general Shopify.ca applications. They store your data on secure servers behind a firewall. 

All direct payment gateways offered by Shopify.ca and used by our company 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.

Generally, the third-party providers used by Alison Siaotong Studio will only collect, use, and disclose your information to the extent necessary to enable them to perform the services that they provided to us. 

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