   each click

   at each click

● ensure that your data is processed securely


We call the information mentioned above “essential information” and we collect it through the use of cookies. Cookies are small text files that most websites uses.

Order Information You Expressly Provide

We will ask you to provide this information in our “checkout page” before letting you finalize your purchase with the payment.

This will remember your information and, when you decide to buy our products, you do not have to provide all of your information over again -- you just have to log-in. Before registering your account, we will ask you to expressly provide your consent to this privacy policy. Only if you give us your consent will we open your account.
