- Process your order and manage your account.
- Email you with special offers on other products and services we think you might like, based on evaluating information on your recent visits to our website, products and services you have clicked and articles or blogposts you have read.

We will not share your data with any other companies so that they may offer you their products and services.
When KNIT SAFARI processes your order, it may send your data to, and also use the resulting information from, credit reference agencies to prevent fraudulent purchases.
We may disclose your personal information if we are required by law to do so or if you violate our Terms of Service.
How do we store your data?
Our store is hosted on Shopify Inc. They provide us with the online e-commerce platform that allows us to sell our products and services to you.
Your data is stored through Shopify’s data storage, databases and the general Shopify application. They store your data on a secure server behind a firewall. To protect your personal information, we take reasonable precautions and follow industry best practices to make sure it is not inappropriately lost, misused, accessed, disclosed, altered or destroyed.
If you choose a direct payment gateway 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.
If you provide us with your credit card information, the information is encrypted using secure socket layer technology (SSL) and stored with a AES-256 encryption. Although no method of transmission over the Internet or electronic storage is 100% secure, we follow all PCI-DSS requirements and implement additional generally accepted industry standards.

KNIT SAFARI will keep your personal identification and marketing preference data for a maximum of 3 years. Once this time period has expired, we will contact you by email to notify you that your data will be removed from the order history and marketing preference database.
KNIT SAFARI would like to send you information about products and services of ours that we think you might like.
