Who we share your data with

We do not share your data with anyone, any analytics data is collected by third-party tools such as Google Analytics, but it’s kept within that service, for our own use. We will never share our client’s browsing data with any third-party.

How long we retain your data

If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.

For users that register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.

Your contact and personal financial information

Additional information
Retro Mini Store will never share, sell, or give access to anyone outside our organization, any part of your personal or financial information, if any. We don’t store any financial information other than the last 4 numbers of your card, for your own safety. All payments are processed through a third-party credit card processing company that has their own security features, so we never have access to any of that information.

How we protect your data
Connections to the website are protected by SSL (Security Socket Layer) technology, meaning all the communications between your computer and/or portable device and the website is encrypted and protected when being transmitted. The information that remains stored on the website such as order details and shipping addresses is protected by a number of security measures in place on our website.

What automated decision making and/or profiling we do with user data
We use a combination of procedures to determine if a transaction might or might not be fraudulent. If the transaction fails in any of those pre-requisites, it is not approved. This process is manual, and does not involve the credit card number of the card. Even though the card processing is done externally, it requires us to approve it before it goes through, so you might see a delay in seeing the transaction on your statement and/or online banking sometimes, and that happens because the transaction was not revised and approved yet. In order to do so, we collect geographic information such as the IP Address from where you placed the order, your billing and shipping address, what’s being ordered and a couple other factors and compare all of them to determine if the transaction is legit or not. If it fails one of these checks, the transaction is then cancelled and the credit card processing company is alerted so they never charge the card that was provided. This is done for your safety, to avoid people using stolen financial information to make purchases on our website. Our system is so good that we have had ZERO chargebacks due to fraudulent transactions since we’ve opened the store.
