We only keep this submission information for correspondance & customer service purposes, but OBAC does not use the information for marketing purposes.
What we collect and store
When you purchase from us, we’ll ask you to provide information including your name, billing address, shipping address, email address, phone number, credit card/payment details and optional account information like username and password.
We’ll use this information for purposes, such as, to:
- Send you information about your account and order

- Set up your account for our store
- Comply with any legal obligations we have, such as calculating taxes
If you create an account, we will store your name, address, email and phone number, which will be used to populate the checkout for future orders.
We generally store information about you for as long as we need the information for the purposes for which we collect and use it, and we are not legally required to continue to keep it. For example, we will store order information for 7 years for tax and accounting purposes. This includes your name, email address and billing addresses.
We accept payments through Stripe. When processing payments, some of your data will be passed to Stripe, including information required to process or support the payment, such as the purchase total and billing information.
We use a membership system called Ultimate Member to allow OBAC members to access member-related information.
The membership process collects personal data from our members including name and email address, but may also include physical address, phone number and other biographical information if the user wishes.
How Long We Retain Your Member Information
Registered user information is retained in our website’s database indefinitely, until such time as a member leaves OBAC or requests it to be deleted.
Where we send your data
