Security of Your Data on our System
This website and the online store is run on our own dedicated server and is maintained by ourselves. We do not use any e-commerce services on other platforms or process data with any other e-commerce service providers. This means, that no third party has direct access to the personal data you give us, or any data you generate on our system.
The webserver and all associated software used to process and store personal user data is constantly kept up to date and security patches are applied as soon as they become available. Additionally our server and e-commerce platform is secured by multiple state of the art firewalls and security systems.
To ensure any data you enter on our website is 100% secure, all the web pages on our website are secured with state of the art SSL encryption (https). No data between your browser and our server will ever be transmitted unencrypted! The encryption is attested via DST Root CA X3 SSL certificate issued by the “Let’s Encrypt” authority to LineGrip Corp. Ltd. State of the art SSL encryption is also applied whenever your data is transmitted to our service partners (payment gateways and shipping providers) for the purpose of processing your orders.
Our data breach procedures
In the event of a data breach, we will immediately inform any user whose data might have been affected about the point in time and the extent of the data breach. In suspicion of a criminal motivated intrusion of our system with potential private user data theft by third parties, we will also press charges with the relevant authorities, and inform the affected users about this measure. At the same time our system will be locked down against external access until the security vulnerability or exploit that led to the data breach has been identified and fixed.

Processing of personal data
What we share with others and why
Any personal data collected within the scope of our website is used only for handling and processing of your requests, comments and orders. By registering on our website, entering your personal data, and placing an order in our shop, you give us your consent to use your personal data for the execution of this order or for the publication of your comment/review. Your personal data will never be used in any way for the purpose of advertising and marketing, or for the creation of such electronic services.

- transmitting your shipping relevant data to parcel service provider for the process of shipping your order
- transmitting your billing relevant data to your selected payment provider (e.g. PayPal, Stripe) during the checkout process (see below for details)
or if we are obliged to reveal and pass the data by law or by a court order to governmental organizations.
Visitors to our website are able to register to use our services and make a purchase. When you register, you will provide personal information such as name, address, email, telephone number and other potentially billing relevant information, such as a VAT-Number when applicable. If you are making a purchase, we will request financial information related to your transaction. Any financial information we collect is used only to bill you for your purchase. This information may be forwarded to your credit card provider, or a credit card billing service, such as STRIPE, or another payment provider you selected, such as PayPal. We will not disclose personally identifiable information we collect from you to third parties without your permission except to the extent necessary, including: to fulfill your requests, to protect ourselves from liability, to comply with the terms and conditions of our internet host provider.
What data we collect and store about you and why
While you visit our site, we may track:
- Products you’ve viewed: we’ll use this to, for example, show you products you’ve recently viewed
- Location, IP address and browser type: we’ll use this for purposes like estimating taxes and shipping
- Shipping address: we’ll ask you to enter this so we can, for instance, estimate shipping before you place an order, and send you the order!
When you purchase from us, we’ll ask you to provide information including your name, billing address, shipping address, email address, phone number, credit card/payment details and optional account information like username and password. We’ll use this information for purposes, such as, to:

If you create an account, we will store your name, address, email and phone number, which will be used to populate the checkout for future orders.
We generally store information about you for as long as we need the information for the purposes for which we collect and use it, and/or for as long as we are legally required to store it. For example, we are legally obligated and will store order information for 10 years for export, tax, and accounting purposes. This includes your name, email address and billing and shipping addresses.
We will also store comments or reviews, if you choose to leave them. 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.
