Processing your information
For the most part, I do not process your information in-house, but give it to third party processors for processing. For example, when PayPal takes your payment information, they are a third party processor. They process your payment and remit the funds to us. So in many instances, it will be necessary for me to transmit your information to a third party processor, as I do not have the capability to perform these functions. More detail on third party processing is detailed below.
However, I may, from time to time, process your data internally. The legal basis for this processing is both your consent to the processing, and my need to conduct my legitimate business interests. My purposes in processing this information, if I do, is to administer, maintain, and improve my website and offerings, to enter into contracts with you, to fulfil the terms of those contracts, to keep records of my transactions and interactions, to be able to provide you with goods and services, to comply with my legal obligations, to obtain professional advice, and to protect the rights and interests of my company, my customers (including you), and any third parties.
