                We at Monica Rich Kosann do not have access to your credit card information. If you choose a direct payment gateway (through our site platform and e-commerce platform, Shopify) to complete your purchase, then Shopify stores your credit card data. It is encrypted through the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI-DSS). Your purchase transaction data is stored only as long as is necessary to complete your purchase transaction. After that is complete, your purchase transaction information is deleted.

                 

                All direct payment gateways adhere to the standards set by PCI-DSS as managed by the PCI Security Standards Council, which is a joint effort of brands like Visa, Mastercard, American Express and Discover.

                 

                PCI-DSS requirements help ensure the secure handling of credit card information by our store and its service providers.

                  Notice of Financial Incentive

                   

                  From time to time, MRK may provide financial incentives to consumers who elect to participate in these programs and, in connection with such programs, allow us to collect and retain certain personal information, such as Identifiers (e.g., your name, email address, or phone number) and Commercial Information (e.g., your purchase history).  These incentives may result in differences in the prices of our products offered to consumers (e.g., discounts and other promotions).  For example, the financial incentives we may provide include discounts based upon purchase activity, discounts in exchange for collection of your personal information, or other periodic discounts for promotional purposes.

                   

                  The material aspects of any financial incentive will be explained and described in its program terms or in the details of the incentive offer.

                   

                  Participation in any financial incentive program is entirely optional and participants may withdraw from the program at any time.
