Charleston Hemp Company collects personally identifiable information when you buy Charleston Hemp Company products. When you purchase from Charleston Hemp Company, we ask for your contact information (such as your name, street address and email address), as well as certain information pertaining to you, along with billing information such as your bank account number. In the course of processing a payment transaction, we typically receive from the merchant or a financial institution information related to the transaction. This normally includes information about the payment that a consumer has furnished the merchant or financial institution in placing the order. We do not acquire any information directly from consumers through the Charleston Hemp Company Web site. The personally identifiable information we acquire in processing payment transactions varies according to the nature of the transaction and the way in which merchants or financial institutions are using our payment services. It may include, for example, the amount of the transaction, the consumer’s name, credit card number and expiration date, billing address, and shipping address. Charleston Hemp Company uses the information collected to fulfill your requests for certain products and services, to process payment transactions, to facilitate billing, and otherwise deliver the payment processing services. We may also send merchants service announcements, newsletters, and periodic notices about specials and new products. Personally identifiable consumer information is used to process payment transactions and for no other purpose. Charleston Hemp Company does not offer services or sell products to children. Charleston Hemp Company does not request or knowingly collect personally identifiable contact information from anyone under the age of 13.
