Here at Bauer Precision ("we", "us"), we take the privacy of our customers very seriously. As such, we've put together some information on the type of information we collect, and how we handle it after the fact.
One fact we'd like to point out - We Don't Sell Data. Not yours, not ours, not anyones. That isn't going to change.
Essential Information We Collect
In operating our store, it is essential to capture some information about your device, such as your IP address and information related to your visit when you browse our store. For example, this might include time-stamps, the last page or product you visited, an indication that you logged in.
We do that in order to:
- Remember who you are after you log in so that you do not need to authenticate at each click;
- Monitor if our website is performing as expected/required;
- Let you browse between products without having to start back from the home page at each click;
- Remember if you put something in your shopping cart before you decide to checkout; and
- Control that your data is processed securely.
If you buy something from our store, we will need more specific information about you. To fully process your order and ship the merchandise you selected, we need your personal data such as your first and last name, your email address and your shipping and billing address. We also use your contact and order information to send you communication related to the processing of your order. We will ask you to provide this information in our “checkout page” before letting you finalize your purchase with the payment.
connect with us at the contact details at the bottom of the page. [Customize with your contact details here.]
If you have started to buy one of our products, but have not completed the purchase, you may have provided partial information, such as your email. In that case, we might send you an email to remind you about your interest. If you are not comfortable in receiving further emails of this kind, we will give you a simple opportunity to opt-out. Your privacy means a lot to us and we will stop sending you these communications right away.
If you have completed a purchase, we will send you an email to ask you to review the product you bought. We want to be sure that whether you love your purchase or have a complaint, you can share your opinion with other customers.
We also use some specific information related to your visit, such as the timestamp of your visit, the page or the product you viewed, where you are coming from (if you came to our store because you clicked on an advertisement or you just opened our direct link). This is very similar to the “essential information,” but we use it to provide you with a personalized experience. The information on your visit provides us with insights on your interests and allows us to send you relevant communications. We capture this information through cookies, called a "beacon," that we allow you to block.
How do we process your information?
We use an external provider to run our store, BigCommerce. BigCommerce is based in the US and is a participant in the EU-US Privacy Shield Framework and committed to providing best-in-class service and data protection.
- Payment: Our store is PCI-DSS compliant (a very strict industry standard with requirements for the security of credit card information). Our processor is also PCI compliant. They will be provided only the information required to process the transaction.
- Bauer Precision does not materially possess your PCI data at any time. This is done directly in BigCommerce to our payment gateway.
- Shipping: We integrate with a number of shipping companies to fulfill your orders. These include USPS, FedEx, and UPS. They will have access to your name and address.
Partnering with highly specialized external companies allows us to focus on what we do best: selling great products.
How long do we keep your data?
We keep your account data for as long as you have an account with us. We also keep some data for security investigations as necessary. Most importantly, we have specific obligations for fraud detection and tax reasons. Therefore, we might need to retain certain data even if you ask to delete it.
Do we have any legal obligations when handling your data?
Bauer Precision must comply with any and all laws within the State of Texas and the broader United States. If you do not wish your data to be stored on a system in the US, do not use our site.
The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives has outlined documentation requirements with which Federal Firearms License holders must abide by. As an FFL, Bauer Precision complies with all of these requirements. This includes maintaining detailed records around firearms acquisitions, sales, and transfers, both in physical and digital mediums, as approved by the ATF. Bauer Precision cannot legally remove, or not collect, any information required per ATF regulations.
