Collection of Personal Information - What do we do with it?

The information you provide for the purpose of completing your order is only used to fulfil your order. Personal information collected during our sales process includes your name, address and email address. Sharing of this information will be limited to partners or third parties who are integral to the order fulfilment process (courier companies, suppliers of custom made items).

Lighting Collective employs various services to monitor our website performance and visitor browsing characteristics. When browsing our store, we automatically receive your computer's internet protocol (IP) address. This information is aggregated and analysed to determine how the content provided (website, blog, newsletters, promotions) may better match visitors’ needs.

Anyone who participates in interactive activities (contests, membership programs, message boards, purchases, newsletter subscriptions, surveys etc.) may be asked to provide information. This information may be used to communicate promotional offers or related information about our company, our partners and relevant third parties. Furthermore that information may be used to design the marketing messages received by the recipients.

When you provide us with personal information to complete a transaction, verify your credit card, place an order, arrange for a delivery or return a purchase, we imply that you consent to our collecting it and using it for that specific reason only. As stated above, for secondary reasons, like marketing, we will either ask you directly for your expressed consent, or provide you with an opportunity to say no.

If you change your mind, you may withdraw your consent for us to contact you, for the continued collection, use or disclosure of your information, at any time by contacting our Privacy Compliance Officer at or mail us at:

Security & Payments

To protect your personal information, we take reasonable precautions and follow industry practices to best ensure it is not inappropriately lost, misused, accessed, disclosed, altered or destroyed.

Our website 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. This data is safely stored by Spotify on a secure server behind a firewall.

If you provide us with your credit card information, the information is encrypted using secure socket layer technology (SSL) and stored with a AES-256 encryption.  Although no method of transmission over the Internet or electronic storage is 100% secure, we follow all PCI-DSS requirements and implement additional generally accepted industry standards.

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.
