When you make a transaction on Butterfly Kingdom, as part of our buying and selling process, we gather personal details such as your name, address, e-mail address or telephone number.

How do we obtain your consent?

When you choose to share your details with us to process a business transaction, verify your credit card, complete an order, make a delivery or return a payment, we will assume that you have given us your consent to the gathering of your personal information.

If we ask you to supply your personal details for any other purposes, such as marketing, we will ask you for explicit consent directly, or we will give you the choice to withdraw your consent.

Butterfly Kingdom is hosted on Shopify Inc. They provide us with the online business platform that enable us to sell Butterfly Mania's services and products to you.

Your data is stored in Shopify's storage system and databases. In the general Shopify application, your data is stored on a secure server protected by a firewall.

For payment, if you make your purchase through a direct payment gateway, Shopify will also store your credit card details. This information is enciphered in a manner consistent with the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI-DSS). Your purchase transactions are stored for as long as necessary to finalize your purchase. After your order is complete, the purchase process information is destroyed. Thus, we do not have direct access to the order information you used to place your order. This data travels through Shopify and the payment gateways.

In fact, all direct payment gateways are PCI-DSS compliant. The Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI-DSS) is set by the five major card payment networks (Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Discover Card and JCB). These standards allow us to ensure the secure handling of credit card data when you make online purchases on Butterfly Kingdom and by its service partners.




In general, the services we use from third party vendors will only capture, use and share your information to the limited extent necessary to provide the services they are performing for us, such as payment processing.

Some of the vendors, however, such as payment gateways and other payment processing companies, have their separate privacy policies concerning the types of information we are asked to provide to them in the course of your purchase transaction on Butterfly Kingdom.




To protect your personal data, we take every reasonable step and follow the highest industry practices to help ensure that it is not lost, misdirected, altered, accessed, or destroyed in an inappropriate manner.

In the instance that you supply us with your credit card information, it will be encrypted through the use of the SSL security protocol and stored with AES-256 encryption. This means that no single human being will have access to the full card number. While 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.




Below is a list of cookies that we use. We have listed them below so that you can choose whether or not to allow them.

_session_id, is a unique session identifier that allows Shopify to store information about your session (referrer, landing page, etc).

_shopify_visit, is a 30 minute time limit for storing cookies since your last visit. After that, no data is stored. This cookie file is used by Butterfly Mania's internal statistics tracking system to record the number of visits.

This cookie expires at midnight of the following day based on the visitor's location. This cookie file calculates the number of visits to a store per unique customer.

storefront_digest, is also a unique identifier. It is undefined if the store has a password. It is used to know if the current visitor has access or not.
