Credit card and payment information is not collected by Tinyme, nor retained by Tinyme, and is only managed through the payment processing authority. For your security, all payment transactions are processed automatically by a third party payment gateway and therefore Tinyme does not store nor is party to your personal credit card or bank details.

Some specific data may be shared as necessary for business operations with our carefully selected service providers that we engage to ensure we deliver the best possible product and service offering to our customers. Data shared to service providers includes data necessary for the hosting of website data servers, managing shipping and deliveries, enabling marketing communications, and website research and analysis.
