Privacy and Security Policy

This Privacy Policy governs the manner in which Koka-Bora Creations ("Us", "We", or "Our") collects, uses, maintains, and discloses information collected from users (each, a "User") of the https://www.kokabora.com website ("Site"). This privacy policy applies to the Site and all products and services offered by Koka-Bora Creations.


Personal identification information

We may collect personal identification information from Users in a variety of ways, including, but not limited to, register on the site, place an order, subscribe to the newsletter, and in connection with other activities, services, features or resources We make available on Our Site. We will collect personal identification information from Users only if the Users voluntarily submit such information to us. Users can always refuse to supply personal identification information and browse the Site anonymously. However, that may prevent Users from engaging in certain Site related activities, services, features or resources.

To shop from the Site, Users may be asked for, as appropriate, name, email address, mailing and billing address. Users can shop two ways:
- Guest checkout: in this case the personal identification information is not saved on the Site. Users can shop using this method for all physical products that require shipping, but not any digital products.
- Registering an account: the personal information is saved in a password protected User account. Users can shop using this method for all physical and digital products.

We DO NOT collect and store government identification information - Social Insurance Number, Social Security number, etc. - or credit card information. Entering this information on Our Site is strongly discouraged and the User bears all accountability, responsibility, and risks of doing so.

In addition, all User information and all of Our products are accessed through www.kokabora.com. Our Site displays the web address at all times and if the web address DOES NOT contain kokabora.com in the beginning, then the Site is fraudulent.
