Data We Collect

When you visit our website, we collect certain information that helps us understand our customers and offer better service. This information includes cookies, web beacons, and log files.

Additionally, we use Google Analytics, a service provided by Google and used by many if not most websites. Google Analytics collects certain information, like cookies, that helps us determine certain information about our website, such as the country in which a user is located. To find out how Google uses data when you use its partners’ sites or apps (like us), you can review their privacy policy here.

Google Analytics and other analytic services we might use collect certain data about your visit when you arrive at our website, including date, time, IP address, referrer, your browser version and operating system, and certain demographic information. While this information is collected when you arrive at our page, we do not store it ourselves.

More About Cookies

We’ve mentioned “cookies” a couple times above, and its important that you understand what they are. A “cookie” is a small piece of text sent to your browser by a website you visit. It helps the website to remember information about your visit, like language preferences and other settings. This can make it easier to use websites so you don’t have to constantly re-enter the same information, or try to remember which links you’ve explored in the past.

Remember, cookies are typically stored in your browser or on your device. This means they can generally be cleared out, and if you want to turn cookies off completely, there’s usually a way to do that in your browser or on your device. Check your browser’s or device’s settings for more information, but keep in mind turning off cookies entirely may make it less convenient to use the internet.

Personal Information

You will be required or asked to provide certain personal information to make purchases on our website. This includes your name, address, e-mail, phone number, and payment information. Like our website, most of this information will be processed and stored on Squarespace’s servers – except for payment information (see below).

Payment Information

When you make a purchase on our website, the payment is handled by either PayPal or Stripe. PayPal is a third party payment service – if you’re paying by PayPal, you’ve already agreed to their terms of service, but you can find those again here. Stripe is a third-party credit card processor, and you can find their privacy policy here. Whether you use PayPal or Stripe to make a purchase at Northern Fashion, please understand that we are not collecting or storing your payment information – rather, that service is handled by PayPal or Stripe as appropriate.

How Northern Fashion Uses Your Information

We use information collected about you and your visit through analytics programs to better understand how users are accessing and using our website and to make adjustments accordingly.

We use personal information you provide to process and manage your order, as well as to keep a record of your order. We may use your personal information for marketing communications, and you consent to these communications by making a purchase or by specifically opting in to marketing communications. You may opt out of future marketing communications at any time.

COPPA

This site is not intended for individuals under the age of 18. We do not intentionally collect, use, or disclose personal information from persons under the age of 18, and by using our website you confirm that you are at least 18 years of age.

Third-Party Disclosures

We do not sell your information to third parties. However, third parties may collect data based on your usage of the Northern Fashion website. Like most small businesses and many large businesses, we use a number of third-party tools to operate our website and make your experience more convenient. These tools include Stripe, PayPal, Google Analytics, and Squarespace. These services are independently owned and operated and we do not have control over how they collect or store your information. You should examine the privacy policies of the respective third parties for additional information.

We may also share your information with law enforcement agencies if we believe we are required to do so to comply with applicable laws and regulations, to respond to a subpoena, search warrant, or other lawful request for information we receive, or to otherwise protect our rights in ways that do not violate the law.
