COLLECTION OF INFORMATION Information You Provide to Us
We collect information you provide directly to us. For example, we may collect information when you use our websites, call us on the phone, create a User Account, sign up to receive our emails, participate in a sweepstakes, contest, promotion, survey, or hackathon, communicate with us via third party social media sites, request customer support, apply for a job or otherwise communicate with us.
The types of information we may collect include your name, email address, zip code, billing address, shipping address, phone number, payment card information, product preferences, demographic information and any other information you choose to provide.
In some cases, we may also collect information you provide about others, such as when you decide to purchase and ship Products to someone. We will use this information to fulfill your requests and may also use that information to send marketing communications to your contact, unless he or she has previously opted out of marketing communications from Avegant.

Information We Collect from Our Partners and Other Sources
We may also obtain information about you from other sources and combine that with information we collect about you.
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. Data obtained from you by Shopify is stored through Shopify’s data storage, databases, and the Shopify application, on a secure server behind a firewall. If you purchase a product through Shopify, Shopify stores your credit card data, 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. PCI-DSS requirements help ensure the secure handling of credit card information by our store and its service providers. For more information, please see Shopify’s Terms of Service and Privacy Statement.
We may also work with third parties to serve ads to you as part of a customized campaign on other websites or platforms.

LINKS TO THIRD-PARTY WEBSITES
Certain providers may be located in or have facilities that are located in a different jurisdiction than either you or us. So if you elect to proceed with a transaction that involves the services of a third-party service provider, then your information may become subject to the laws of the jurisdiction(s) in which that service provider or its facilities are located.
As an example, if you are located in Canada and your transaction is processed by a payment gateway located in the United States, then your personal information used in completing that transaction may be subject to disclosure under United States legislation, including the Patriot Act.
