  1. SCOPE

This Privacy Policy describes the treatment of information provided or collected from you by SALT.  SALT follows this Privacy Policy in accordance with applicable law in the places where we operate.  In some cases, we may provide additional data privacy notices specific to certain regions.  Those terms are to be read in conjunction with this policy.

This Privacy Policy describes the types of information we may collect from you or that you may provide when you visit our website, or otherwise submit an order, sign up for marketing communications, or contact us in any other form, and our practices for collecting, using, maintaining, protecting, and disclosing that information.  Please note that this Privacy Policy does not apply to information collected strictly in the context of business-to-business relationships or transactions.

Please keep in mind that when you provide information to us on a third-party site or platform, the information you provide may be separately collected by the third-party site or platform.  Only the information we directly collect is covered by this Privacy Policy, and the information the third-party site or platform collects is subject to the third-party site or platform’s privacy practices.  Privacy choices you have made on the third-party site or platform will not apply to our use of the information we have collected directly.


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.

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.

Third party payment processors

In general, the third-party providers used by us will only collect, use and disclose your information to the extent necessary to allow them to perform the services they provide to us.

However, certain third-party service providers, such as payment gateways and other payment transaction processors, have their own privacy policies in respect to the information we are required to provide to them for your purchase-related transactions.

For these providers, 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 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 Patriot Act.

Once you leave our store’s website or are redirected to a third-party website or application, you are no longer governed by this Privacy Policy or our website’s Terms of Service.
