1&1 Ionos, WordPress and Woocommerce
Our Site is hosted by 1&1 Ionos Inc. They provide us with the online e-commerce platform that allows us to sell our products and services to you. Your data is stored through WordPress and WooCommerce data storage, databases and the general WooCommerce application. They store your data on a secure server behind a firewall.
If you choose a direct payment gateway to complete your purchase, then Paypal or Stripe stores your credit card data. It is 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, 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 Site and its service providers.
