Your data is stored through Shopify’s data storage, databases and the general Shopify application. The information Shopify collects from you is governed by Shopify’s privacy policy and other policies. (See: and According to such policies, Shopify protects credit card information according to the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI-DSS), a set of security requirements managed by the PCI Security Standards Council, which is a joint effort of the payment brands, including Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Discover. PCI-DSS requirements help ensure the secure handling of credit card information by merchants and service providers. However, no method of transmission over the internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure. The description above is qualified in its entirety by the terms and conditions of Shopify’s privacy policies, and you should review the policies posted on Shopify’s site to be fully informed.


We do not sell or rent your personally identifiable information to third parties. We share your information only with our affiliates and service providers or as otherwise described herein in order to provide you with our products and services. In general, our agreements with third party providers used by us require that they only use and disclose your information to the extent necessary to allow them to perform the services they provide to us.

Once you leave our Site or are redirected to a third party website or application, you are no longer governed by this Privacy Policy or our Site’s Terms of Service. For example, as noted above, you may be redirected to the sites of certain third party service providers, such as Shopify and/or other payment gateways or payment transaction processors, in order to complete your product purchases. Such third party websites have their own privacy policies with respect to the information required for your purchase-related transactions and under no circumstances is GUARDRIDE responsible or liable for the third party’s compliance therewith.

The Site may also reference or provide links to other third party websites, such as advertisers. For these third parties, we recommend that you read their privacy policies so you can understand the manner in which your personal information will be handled by these providers.

In particular, remember that certain providers may be located in or have facilities that are located in a different jurisdiction than either you or us. So if you elect to proceed with a transaction that involves the services of a third-party service provider, then your information may become subject to the laws of the jurisdiction(s) in which that service provider or its facilities are located.

As an example, if you are located in Canada and your transaction is processed by a payment gateway located in the United States, then your personal information used in completing that transaction may be subject to disclosure under United States legislation, including the USA Patriot Act (P.L. 107-56).

We may share aggregated, non-personally identifiable information gathered by us with then-current or potential business partners and/or advertisers to provide them with information about our Site, our visitors and our customers.

We may also disclose your personal information (i) to protect the integrity or security of the Site or the interests, rights, or property of GUARDRIDE; or (ii) to enforce the Site’s Terms of Use.


To protect your personal information, we take reasonable precautions and follow common industry practices to guard against such information being lost, misused, accessed, disclosed, altered or destroyed.
