DOES MAKERS GARAGE USE COOKIES OR BEACONS?

Most websites, including our website, use “Cookies” – which are electronic files that websites place on a visitor’s computer to store information that makes each visit to the site more efficient.  We use both “session” and “persistent” cookies on our website.  A session cookie stores information about you only while you are visiting our site, then is deleted when you leave our site.  Persistent cookies store information about you, your preferences, and information about other websites you visit, and it remains on your computer or device after you leave our website.  To remove cookies, you may configure your browser to clear all cookies, or configure it to reject cookies whenever you visit a new website.   Please consult your browser’s user guide for specific instructions on removing cookies.

“Beacons” are small graphic files with a unique identifier that are used to track a web or mobile site user’s online movements.   Unlike cookies, beacons are embedded on websites or in email communications, not downloaded on your computer or device.   We use beacons to better manage and track content on our website and our marketing campaigns, and to better understand your interactions with our website and communications.

DOES MAKERS GARAGE COLLECT PAYMENT CARD INFORMATION THROUGH ITS WEBSITE? 

We partner with PAYPAL to process credit and debit card transactions completed through our website.  Your credit or debit card information is never shared with us, and at no point in any transaction do we have access to that information.  You should consult PAYPAL’s privacy Policy and terms of use to learn more about how it processes credit and debit card transactions for us by visiting https://www.paypal.com

 

CAN I CHOOSE TO STOP RECEIVING MARKETING MESSAGES FROM MAKERS GARAGE OR CHANGE MY PERSONAL INFORMATION?

If you opt-in, or when you purchase our products, we may send you newsletters and other messages, including marketing emails, and other communication about our products and services, and to alert you to relevant advertisements and other opportunities.  You can always choose to stop receiving newsletters or other communications from us by clicking the “unsubscribe” link at the bottom of any MAKERS GARAGE marketing message.

You can delete, change, or update your Personal Information at any time by contacting us at jason@makers-garage.com.  We may require you to provide certain information to verify that it is you making the request.  However, note we will not delete information that we are required to retain in order to comply with applicable laws and regulations, or that we are required to retain in order to complete transactions with you.

EUROPEAN USERS

This section applies to all Personal Information (referred to as “personal data” in this section) collected by us from visitors and customers in the European Economic Area (“EEA”), the United Kingdom, and Switzerland (“personal data”) that are using our website. The processing of personal data is governed by the General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”) in the EEA, and similar data privacy laws in the United Kingdom and Switzerland. These laws require us to provide certain information regarding our processing of your personal data.

  • Our Processing of personal data: MAKERS GARAGE is the data controller of personal data you provide to us, and the purposes of our processing of personal data are described in this Policy and outlined below.  We may also process personal data on other bases permitted by the GDPR and applicable laws. In general, we process personal data on the following legal grounds:
    • Providing our products and services to you or performing a contract we have with you: In certain circumstances, we need your personal data to comply with our contractual obligation to deliver products you order from us. For example, if you buy our products through our website, we need your name and contact details so that we can communicate with you and deliver the products to you. In this case, your personal data is necessary to provide you with the products that you order. If you do not provide your personal data we will not be able to provide you with the requested products and services.
    • When the processing is necessary for purposes of our legitimate business interest in conducting our business: For example, we have a legitimate interest in communicating information about our company and (subject to marketing authorizations) our commercial products, events, and company initiatives; and improving our website content and functionality. We take into account any risks to your fundamental rights and freedoms in assessing these purposes (including your right to privacy);
    • When the processing is necessary for us to comply with our legal obligations; and
    • When you give us the consent to process your personal data
  • Categories of personal data: All categories of personal data collected and processed by us are described in this Policy.
  • Recipients of personal data: We use various service providers to manage our website, help us fulfill product orders, and assist us as described in this Policy.  Our service providers change from time to time.  Note that we require our service providers to treat your personal data in a manner that is consistent with this Policy. If you would like specific information about our service providers who have received your information, please contact us at jason@makers-garage.com  and we will provide that information to you. Additionally, please see the “International Orders” section above to learn more about how your information will be shared with Reach, our preferred international reseller, when you make an international order on our website. For purposes of fulfilling your order and related activities, Reach is an independent data controller.
  • Transfers of personal data outside of the EEA: MAKERS GARAGE is based in the U.S. and that’s where we process personal data.  When you provide personal data to us, we transfer that personal data to the U.S. We treat the personal data of EEA users in accordance with this Policy.  We take appropriate steps to protect your privacy and implement reasonable security measures to protect your personal data in storage. We also enter into contracts with our data processors that require them to treat personal data in a manner that is consistent with this Policy.
  • Personal data retention: We retain personal data so long as it is necessary for the purpose for which it was collected, and delete personal data after it is no longer needed for these purposes.  This does not affect your right to request that we delete your personal data before the end of its retention period.  We may archive personal data (which means storing it in inactive files) for a certain period of time prior to its final deletion, as part of our ordinary business continuity procedures.
  • Your rights:
    • You have the right to access to your personal data, to have it corrected if the personal data we have is incorrect, to request that we restrict or delete your personal data, and to object to our processing of your personal data. Your rights may be subject to various limitations under applicable privacy laws.  If you wish to exercise any of these rights, or if you have any concerns about our processing of your personal data, please contact us at jason@makers-garage.com.
    • You have the right to file a complaint concerning our processing of your personal data with your national data protection authority.
    • You have the right to file a complaint with a competent data protection supervisory authority, in particular in the EU Member State where you reside, work or the place of the alleged infringement. You have the right to do so if you consider that the processing of Personal Data relating to you infringes applicable data protection laws.
