Privacy and Data Collection Policy:
While MAP Merch Shop will do its due diligence to protect your data on our end, there is always an inherent risk when shopping online. That risk is somewhat greater for people in the MAP community as MAP websites are often the target of antis and vigilantes. You should expect the same behavior toward MMS.
When placing an order or contacting MMS, we collect certain information from you up to and including but not limited to: Name, Address, Payment Information, Email Address, IP Address, and Browser Information.
Name, Address, Email Address, and Payment Information are used for conducting transactions, and shipping of product(s). Payment Information is never visible to us. MMS uses Stripe as our payment processor, and all transactions are routed through their infrastructure. Name and address are visible to us for the purpose of identifying and processing orders. We may share your name and address with a third-party distributor in cases where we use third-party distributors to fulfill your order. While I have no control over the data held on the servers of distributors and the payment processor, your personal information is deleted from the MMS server upon order fulfillment.
IP Addresses and Browser Information are collected for anti-fraud, and anti-spam measures.
To fulfill some orders, MMS will be using third-party distributors. While these distributors produce quality products and have reliable logistics to get the products to you, we can’t always account for dishonest employees of these distributors who may recognize the logos used in this merch, and become lone-wolf vigilantes. You are encouraged to take precautions to mitigate these risks, such as using a P.O. Box, and/or shipping to an alternative pickup location. You’re also encouraged to NOT link your forum username, or other MAP pseudonyms to your purchase on MMS. We also offer analog ordering, to further protect your privacy and security.
By using this site, you acknowledge and give MMS the right to use your data for the above-stated purposes. MMS will do its due diligence to protect your data, but we make no warranty against the safety of your personal information. Your use of this site is voluntary, and at your own risk.
If you have questions or concerns, please contact us
