We implement a variety of security measures to maintain the safety of your personal information. 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 securely. Your data is transmitted via a secure socket layer (SSL) technology and stored encrypted using Shopify’s data storage, databases, and the general Shopify application. 

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 ensure the secure handling of credit card information by our store and its service providers.

Although no method of transmission over the Internet or electronic storage is 100% secure, we follow all PCI-DSS requirements and implement additional generally accepted industry standards


If you do not want us to share your personal information with unaffiliated or non-agent outside parties for direct marketing purposes, you may modify your e-mail subscriptions or opt out. To modify your e-mail subscriptions or opt-out of receiving BlackStrap e-mail (other than required service emails or communications required by law) please email us at and simply ask us to remove your company, name or account from our email list. Please note that due to email production schedules, you may receive any emails already in production.

You may also request that we provide you in a machine-readable format a copy of the specific pieces of personal information we have collected about you in the past 12 months. You may make a request to know up to two times in a 12-month period, subject to limitations described in the law. For a list of general categories of information that we have collected and shared in the past 12 months, see the tables “What Information Do We Collect And How Is It Collected” in our Privacy Policy.


You may request that we delete any personal information that we have collected from you. However, the law exempts certain information from deletion. For example, we may keep information necessary for security and fraud detection. We also may keep information needed to provide you goods or services. When we respond to your request to delete, we will explain what (if any) information we have kept and why.

Our Website is not intended for children under 13 years of age. We do not knowingly collect personal information from children under 13. If you are under 13, do not use or provide any information on this Website or make any purchases through the Website. If we learn we have collected or received personal information from a child under 13 without verification of parental consent, we will delete that information.

As described above, we may share information with third parties with whom we sponsor events if you consent to such disclosure.

California law permits residents of California to request certain details about how their information is shared with third parties for direct marketing purposes. Under the law, a business must either provide this information or permit California residents to opt in to, or opt out of, this type of sharing. We qualify for this alternative option by only sharing information when you have opted in to such sharing.


This section provides additional details about the personal information we collect about California consumers and the rights afforded to them under the California Consumer Privacy Act or “CCPA.”

Subject to certain limitations, the CCPA provides California consumers the right to request to know more details about the categories or specific pieces of personal information we collect, to delete their personal information, to opt out of any “sales” that may be occurring, and to not be discriminated against for exercising these rights.

In the last 12 months, we collected the following categories of personal information: identifiers (such as name and contact information), characteristics of protected classifications (such as age and gender), commercial information (such as products purchased), internet or other electronic network activity information (such as browsing behavior), geolocation data, audio, electronic, visual or similar information (such as profile pictures or customer support call information), and inferences we make (such as preferred activities). We collect this information for the business and commercial purposes described in the “How We Use Your Information” section above. We share this information with the categories of third parties described in the “Sharing Your Personal Information” section above.

California consumers may make a rights request by emailing us at We may require that you provide additional information in order to verify your request.


It is our policy to provide notifications, whether such notifications are required by law or are for marketing or other business related purposes, to you via email notice, written or hard copy notice, or through conspicuous posting of such notice on our Website, as we determine in our sole discretion. We reserve the right to determine the form and means of providing notifications to you.
