What personal data we collect and why we collect it
Information AOA Collects
To fulfill your order, you must provide AOA with certain information, such as your name, email address, postal address, payment information, and the details of the product that you’re ordering.
Why AOA Needs Your Information and How It Is Used
AOA relies on a number of legal bases to collect, use, and share your information, including:
• as needed to provide services, such as when AOA uses your information to fulfil your order, to settle disputes, or to provide customer support;
• when you have provided your affirmative consent, which you may revoke at any time, such as by signing up for the AOA mailing list;
• if necessary to comply with a legal obligation or court order or in connection with a legal claim, such as retaining information about your purchases if required by tax law; and
• as necessary for the purpose of AOA’s legitimate interests, if those legitimate interests are not overridden by your rights or interests, such as 1) providing and improving AOA services. AOA uses your information to provide the services you requested and in the legitimate interest to improve services.
Information Sharing and Disclosure
Information about customers is important to AOA’s business. AOA only shares your personal information for very limited reasons and in limited circumstances, as follows:
• Service providers. AOA engages certain trusted third parties to perform functions and provide business services, such as dropship Print Providers and delivery companies. AOA will share your personal information with these third parties, but only to the extent necessary to perform these services.
• Business transfers. If AOA were to be sold to a new owner or merged with another business, AOA may disclose your information as part of that transaction, only to the extent permitted by law.
• Compliance with laws. AOA may collect, use, retain, and share your information if AOA has a good faith belief that it is reasonably necessary to: (a) respond to legal process or to government requests; (b) enforce AOA 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 my customers, or others.

Transfers of Personal Information Outside the EU
AOA may store and process your information through third-party hosting services in the US and other jurisdictions. As a result, AOA may transfer your personal information to a jurisdiction with different data protection and government surveillance laws than your jurisdiction. If AOA has deemed to transfer information about you outside of the EU, AOA relies on Privacy Shield as the legal basis for the transfer, as Google Cloud is Privacy Shield certified.
If you reside in certain territories, including the EU, you have a number of rights in relation to your personal information. While some of these rights apply generally, certain rights apply only in certain limited cases as described below:
• Access. You may have the right to access and receive a copy of the personal information AOA holds about you by contacting the owner using the contact information below.
• Change, restrict, delete. You also have rights to change, restrict AOA’s use of, or delete your personal information. Absent exceptional circumstances (like where AOA is required to store data for legal reasons) AOA will generally delete your personal information upon request.
• Object. You can object to (i) AOA processing of some of your information based on AOA’s legitimate interests and (ii) receiving marketing messages from AOA after providing your express consent to receive them. In such cases, AOA will delete your personal information unless AOA has compelling and legitimate grounds to continue using that information or if it is needed for legal reasons.
• Complain. If you reside in the EU and wish to raise a concern about AOA’s use of your information (and without prejudice to any other rights you may have), you have the right to do so with your local data protection authority.
