How long we retain your data

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.

You can create an account with your contact details and shipping information. This can speed up the checkout process and allows for more granular order status updates. However creating an account for the purposes of making a purchase is not required.
We also make use of Coinbase for Cypto Payments. When processing these payments, some of your data will be passed onto Coinbase. Please see the Coinbase Merchant Privacy and Security Page for more details.
