What personal data we collect and why we collect it
To fulfil your order, you must provide us with certain information, such as your name, email address, postal address, phone number, payment information, and the details of the product that you’re ordering. We will only use your phone number if it is extremely important. Almost all of our notifications regarding your orders or inquiries are through email. You may also choose to provide us with additional personal information (for a custom order, for example), if you contact us directly.
When visitors leave comments on the site we collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.
If you upload images to the website, you should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included. Visitors to the website can download and extract any location data from images on the website.
If you leave a comment on our site you may opt-in to saving your name, email address and website in cookies. These are for your convenience so that you do not have to fill in your details again when you leave another comment. These cookies will last for one year.
If you have an account and you log in to this site, we will set a temporary cookie to determine if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie contains no personal data and is discarded when you close your browser.
When you log in, we will also set up several cookies to save your login information and your screen display choices. Login cookies last for two days, and screen options cookies last for a year. If you select “Remember Me”, your login will persist for two weeks. If you log out of your account, the login cookies will be removed.
If you edit or publish an article, an additional cookie will be saved in your browser. This cookie includes no personal data and simply indicates the post ID of the article you just edited. It expires after 1 day.
Embedded content from other websites
Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.
Who we share your data with
We engage certain trusted third parties to perform functions and provide services to our shop, such as delivery companies. We will share your personal information with these third parties, but only to the extent necessary to perform these services.
If we sell or merge our business, we may disclose your information as part of that transaction, only to the extent permitted by law. Compliance with laws. We may collect, use, retain, and share your information if we have a good faith belief that it is reasonably necessary to:
(a) respond to legal process or to government requests; (b) enforce our agreements, terms and policies; (c) prevent, investigate, and address fraud and other illegal activity, security, or technical issues; or (d) protect the rights, property, and safety of our customers, or others.
How long we retain your data
If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.
For users that register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. 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.
What rights you have over your data
If you have an account on this site, or have left comments, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.
Where we send your data
Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.

How we protect your data
Our website is protected with the SSL security protocol. This means that your personal data (address, name, email and phone number) can not be intercepted when you upload them into our system.
On the other hand, our online payment processor is PayPal. PayPal lets anyone with an email address securely send and receive online payments using their credit / debit card or bank account. It is the most popular way to electronically pay for goods or services.
When paying through PayPal, your credit card and billing information cannot be read as it travels to PayPal.
We never even receive your credit card information.
PayPal automatically encrypts your confidential information in transit from your computer to theirs using the Secure Sockets Layer protocol, SSL, with an encryption key length of 128-bits, the highest level commercially available.
Before you even register or log in to their site, their server checks that you are using an approved browser, one that uses SSL 3.0 or higher.
Once your information reaches them, it resides on a server that is heavily guarded both physically and electronically. Their servers sit behind an electronic firewall and are not directly connected to the internet, so your private information is available only to authorized computers. PayPal processes billions of dollars in payments each year.
My Mate World will never willfully sell, trade, rent, or otherwise transmit any personally identifiable information about you to any third party without first receiving your permission.
