Privacy Policy

Last updated: June 23rd, 2020 - Version 1.1

Purpose

Protecting your privacy is important to us at AxelHardy.com (“Axel Hardy”)

Axel Hardy provides services and develops software to help merchants sell better or more efficiently online through various platforms, such as Shopify. Axel Hardy has adopted this Privacy Policy (“Privacy Policy”) to guide you through the collection, use, retention, and disclosure of Personally Identifiable Information (“Personal Data”, as further described below) that you may provide while using Axel Hardy websites, apps, and services in connection with these platforms (collectively referred to as “Services”). A list of our apps is available on our website or on our Shopify portfolio. Axel Hardy encourages you to read this Privacy Policy in order to understand how we collect and process Personal Data in the course of providing the Services and your interaction with the Services.

By using the Services, you consent to the collection, use, retention, and disclosure of your Personal Data for processing as described in, and subject to the limitations set out in this Privacy Policy.

Note to Residents of the European Union and California: In order to comply with the requirements of the European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) for our European users, and California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA), this Privacy Policy outlines the legal basis on which we process your Personal Data and provides other information required by the GDPR & CCPA.

Personal Data

Personal Data is any information that would identify a person directly, or indirectly in combination with data from other sources. For example, a full name, home or work address, phone number, national identification number (SSN, SIN, etc.), email address, banking details, IP address, biometric data, usage data, or any information that may individually identify a person.

Axel Hardy may collect Personal Data including without limitation your name, shipping and billing addresses, phone number, email address, payment information, IP address, and device identifiers and/or geolocation information, in the course of its Services, and may use or disclose that Personal Data as described in this Privacy Policy.

Axel Hardy may also create de-identified or anonymized data from Personal Data by excluding data components (such as your name, email address, etc.) that makes the data able to personally identify you, through obfuscation, or through other means. In addition, Axel Hardy may collect and use aggregated, anonymous information to provide data about the Services to advertisers, potential business partners and other unaffiliated entities. As this information does not identify a person, and is therefore not Personal Data, Axel Hardy’s use of such aggregated, anonymized and/or de-identified data is not subject to this Privacy Policy.

Anonymous Information

When you interact with a Axel Hardy Service, similar to most other websites, apps, and online services, certain anonymous technical information about your visit is automatically logged and collected by Axel Hardy. This may include information about the type of browser you use, operating system, the date and time you access the Service, the links you accessed while using the Service, and the internet address of the website, if any, which linked directly to the Axel Hardy Service. This information is used for system administration purposes such as diagnosing problems with Axel Hardy’s Services, servers and websites, compiling aggregated and statistical information, and to improve the operation and content of Axel Hardy’s websites and Services. It is not personally identifiable, and is not considered Personal Data and subject to this Privacy Policy.

Personal Data Use

Axel Hardy may use collected Personal Data for such purposes as:

  • Helping to establish and verify the identity of users, and to keep user accounts secure,
  • Opening, maintaining, administering and servicing users’ accounts or memberships,
  • Providing Services and support to users,
  • Improving Axel Hardy’s websites, including tailoring its websites to users’ preferences,
  • Providing users with product or Service updates, promotional notices and offers, and other information about Axel Hardy and its affiliates,
  • Corresponding with you, and responding to your questions, inquiries, comments, and instructions,
  • Maintaining the security and integrity of Axel Hardy systems, and,
  • Complying with applicable laws.

Once collected, Axel Hardy will store and process your Personal Data in secure locations. Axel Hardy may transmit data outside of Canada for the purposes of processing and executing transactions related to the Services, or for the purpose of executing transactions on behalf of merchants that have installed and make use of Axel Hardy Apps in connection with their online stores. Where this transmission occurs, the security measures outlined in this Privacy Policy will continue to apply.

Personal Data will only be retained by Axel Hardy for the length of time required to fulfill the purpose or complete the transaction for which it was collected, or as may be required by law. Beyond that point, Personal Data in the possession or control of Axel Hardy will be anonymized or securely destroyed.

Security

Axel Hardy maintains reasonable physical, technical, and administrative security measures to minimize the risk of unauthorized loss, theft, copying, misuse, access, disclosure, alteration, or destruction of your Personal Data.

If transactions are offered as part of a Axel Hardy Service, transaction information is transmitted to and from Axel Hardy in encrypted form using industry-standard Secure Socket Layer (SSL) connections to help protect such information, including Personal Data transmitted in the course of these transactions, from interception.

Axel Hardy also restricts access to your Personal Information to only those persons who have a legitimate business need or legal requirement to view it in connection with the Services. You, as a Personal Data owner, may also authorize any persons you may choose to have access to your Personal Data.

Although Axel Hardy does utilize security measures appropriate to the level of risk, no method of data transfer or storage on the internet is 100% secure and security risks cannot be eliminated entirely. As such, Axel Hardy cannot guarantee perfect security, integrity, or confidentiality of Personal Data.

Axel Hardy maintains a security incident response protocol to be put in place in the event that the security of your Personal Data in the possession or control of Axel Hardy is compromised. In the event of a data breach or security incident involving the Services, Axel Hardy will apply this protocol to enable Axel Hardy to effectively and efficiently respond to, and contain, the breach or incident. Axel Hardy may also seek to notify you in such an event. If notification is appropriate or required, Axel Hardy may notify you by email, messaging to your device, or other reasonable means.

Disclosure of Personal Data

Axel Hardy does not provide Personal Data to unaffiliated third parties for their use in marketing directly to you. We may use unaffiliated companies, or trusted third party service providers, to help maintain and operate our Services for reasons related to our business operations and to better serve you, and those companies may receive your Personal Data for that purpose. For example, Bold may use third party payment processor services in connection with the Services and its websites, and the payment information that you provide to Axel Hardy may be disclosed to and used by these payment processors for the purposes of completing and executing transactions requested or initiated by you. When Axel Hardy shares Personal Data with third-party services that support our delivery of the Services, we require that they use your Personal Data only for the purposes we’ve authorized, and that they protect your Personal Data to at least the same standards used by Axel Hardy.

As part of agreements with merchants who have installed Axel Hardy Apps and the execution of transactions on behalf of merchants that make use of Axel Hardy Apps in connection with their online stores, we may disclose Personal Data which has been collected by us that is specific to that merchant’s store and your transactions in connection therewith.

Axel Hardy may also disclose Personal Data about you in connection with legal requirements, such as in response to an authorized subpoena, governmental request or investigation, or as otherwise permitted by applicable law (including, without limitation, to prevent fraud or abuse, or to protect Axel Hardy’s legal rights, property, or the safety of Axel Hardy, its employees, users or others).

Finally, as Axel Hardy’s business develops, it may sell or buy corporate assets, and in such transactions Personal Data may be one of the transferred business assets. If Axel Hardy, its internet businesses, or substantially all of its shares or assets, is acquired or an acquisition is contemplated, Personal Data may be one of the assets assessed or transferred in connection with that transaction.

A list of Data Processors engaged by Axel Hardy who may receive Personal Data is available here. New processors will be added to this list 30 days prior to being integrated into our Services. If you are subject to the GDPR and have objections to a Data Processor addition, please contact Axel Hardy via the Contact & Questions area at the bottom of this Privacy Policy. Objections to Data Processors may impact the Services which can be offered or provided to you by Axel Hardy.

If you believe your Personal Data has been disclosed other than as described in this Privacy Policy, please contact Axel Hardy via the Contact & Questions area at the bottom of this Privacy Policy.

Transfers of Your Personal Data to Other Countries

The Personal Data Axel Hardy processes, and associated Services and systems, may be housed on servers in various locations where Axel Hardy maintains servers or facilities, including Canada, the United States, and the EU. Please be aware that Personal Data we collect may be processed and stored in one or more of these locations. The data protection and privacy laws in these locations may offer a different level of protection than in your country/region, however, as noted earlier in this Privacy Policy, Axel Hardy takes steps, including through contracts, intended to ensure that the Personal Data it collects continues to be protected wherever it is located in a manner consistent with the standards of protection required under applicable law.

Where Personal Data is transferred from the European Economic Area to a country that has not received an adequacy decision by the European Commission, Axel Hardy relies on appropriate safeguards, such as for example the European Commission-approved Standard Contractual Clauses and EU-U.S. Privacy Shield Frameworks, to transfer the Personal Data.

By using our Services and submitting your Personal Data, you agree to the transfer, storage, and/or processing of your Personal Data in the locations contemplated above. Where and as required, we will seek your explicit consent as outlined in this Privacy Policy.
