In those cases, your unique personally identifiable information (e-mail, name, address, telephone number) is not transferred to the third party. Root & Branch may share data with trusted partners to help perform statistical analysis, send you email or postal mail, provide customer support, or arrange for deliveries.

PayPal
Root & Branch uses PayPal to collect payment for products and services. They provide Root & Branch with the online e-commerce platform that allows us to sell our products and services to you.
Your data is stored through PayPal’s data storage, databases, and the general PayPal application. They store your data on a secure server behind a firewall.

Payment: If you choose a direct payment gateway to complete your purchase, then PayPal 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 Services
In general, the third-party providers used by Root & Branch will only collect, use, and disclose your information to the extent necessary to allow them to perform the services they provide to Root & Branch.

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

For these providers, Root & Branch recommends 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 Root & Branch. 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 Root & Branch's website or are redirected to a third-party website or application, you are no longer governed by this Privacy Policy or Root & Branch’s Terms of Service.

Use of Cookies
The Root & Branch website may use "cookies" to help you personalize your online experience. A cookie is a text file that is placed on your hard disk by a web page server. Cookies cannot be used to run programs or deliver viruses to your computer. Cookies are uniquely assigned to you and can only be read by a web server in the domain that issued that cookie to you.

One of the primary purposes of cookies is to provide a convenience feature to save you time. The purpose of a cookie is to tell the Web server that you have returned to a specific page. For example, if you personalize Root & Branch pages, or register with the Root & Branch site or services, a cookie helps Root & Branch to recall your specific information on subsequent visits. This simplifies the process of recording your personal information, such as billing addresses, shipping addresses, and so on. When you return to the same Root & Branch website, the information you previously provided can be retrieved, so you can easily use the Root & Branch features that you customized.

You have the ability to accept or decline cookies. Most Web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies if you prefer. If you choose to decline cookies, you may not be able to fully experience the interactive features of the Root & Branch services or websites you visit.

Security of your Personal Information
Root & Branch secures your personal information from unauthorized access, use or disclosure. When personal information (such as credit card number) is transmitted to other websites, it is protected through the use of encryption, such as the Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) protocol.
