SECTION 1 – WHAT DO WE DO WITH YOUR INFORMATION?
When you buy something from our store, as part of the buying and selling process, we collect the personal information you give us such as name, address, and email.
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.
Email marketing: With your permission, we may occasionally send you emails about the status of your order, our store, new products, and other updates.
SECTION 2 – CONSENT
How do you obtain my consent?
When you provide us with your personal information to complete a transaction, verify your credit card, create an order, arrange a shipment or make a return, we imply that you agree to the collection and use for that specific reason only.
If we ask for your personal information for a secondary reason, such as marketing, we will directly ask for your express consent, or we will give you the opportunity to refuse.

If after accepting you change your mind, you can withdraw your consent for us to contact you, for the collection, use, or disclosure of your information, at any time, by contacting us at the following email address privacy (at) bearingbay.com.
SECTION 3 – DISCLOSURE
We are committed to respecting your privacy and under no circumstances do we intend to disclose your personal information, unless we are required by law, government institutions, or if you violate our Terms of Service.
SECTION 4 – WEB
Payments: If you choose a secure direct payment gateway to complete your purchase, such as Stripe or PayPal, these platforms store your credit card data in encrypted form through the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI-DSS). Your purchase transaction data is stored temporarily only to the extent necessary to complete the purchase transaction. After the payment is completed, your purchase transaction information is deleted.
All direct payment gateways adhere to the standards set by PCI-DSS as outlined 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 from stores and their service providers.
SECTION 5 – THIRD-PARTY SERVICES
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, some 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 purchase-related transactions.
For these providers, we recommend that you read their privacy policies so that you can understand how your personal information will be handled.
In particular, remember that some providers may be located or have facilities that are in a different jurisdiction than you or us. So if you wish to proceed with a transaction that involves the services of a third-party provider, your information may be subject to the laws of the jurisdiction (jurisdictions) in which the service provider or its facilities are located.
By way of example, if you are in Canada and your transaction is processed by a payment gateway based in the United States, then your personal information used to complete the transaction may be subject to disclosure under United States law, including the Patriot Act.
