Secure Online Ordering
Stash Tea takes seriously the issue of security. Every time you send us your credit card number and your billing and shipping information, we use the industry-standard Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) technology to prevent the information from being intercepted. We also encrypt your credit card number when we store your order. Your credit card information is not saved to your account (see Payment below for more).
A cookie is a small amount of data sent to, or requested from, your computer. Cookies are used in order to keep track of your shopping cart. Without cookies, the online ordering system would not be able to associate your shopping cart with you, and you would not be able to carry more than one item in your cart at a time.
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.
Your data is stored through Shopify's data storage, databases, and the general Shopify application. They store your data on a secure server behind a firewall.
If you choose a direct payment gateway to complete your purchase, then Shopify 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 ensures the secure handling of credit card information by our store and its service providers.
