Personal Data Collected
I collect your personal data when you submit one of my website’s contact forms, as well as when you make a purchase. Your personal information collected includes your name, email address, phone number, physical billing and shipping addresses, along with your preferences for completing custom mala orders. I use your info to contact you regarding your mala questions and orders, as well as send you your products.
Your information is collected through the following channels:

I collect information about you during the checkout process on my online store.
While you visit my site, I track:
- Products you’ve viewed
- Location, IP address and browser type
- Shipping address
When you purchase from me, I’ll ask you to provide information including your name, billing address, shipping address, email address, phone number, credit card/payment details and optional account information like username and password. I use this information for purposes, such as, to:
- Send you information about your account and order
- Respond to your requests, including refunds and complaints
- Process payments and prevent fraud
- Set up your account for my store
- Comply with any legal obligations I have, such as calculating taxes
- Improve my store offerings
- Send you marketing messages, if you choose to receive them
If you create an account, I will store your name, address, email and phone number, which will be used to populate the checkout for future orders.
I generally store information about you for as long as I need the information for the purposes for which we collect and use it, and I am not legally required to continue to keep it. For example, I will store order information for 7 years for tax and accounting purposes. This includes your name, email address, billing and shipping addresses, and purchase details.
I also store comments or reviews, if you choose to leave them.
When visitors leave comments on the site, I collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.
