Privacy Policy

Updated March 6, 2019

Any collected data is used to communicate with you, provide customer service, communicate with you, communicate about services, promotions or events, and analyze usage trends on our website. We may collect any information you provide to us directly. We may collect information automatically.


How we use the information we collect
We will use your information to respond to you, regarding the reason you contacted us. Unless you ask us not to, we may contact you via email in the future to tell you about specials, new products or services, or changes to this privacy policy.
We request information from you on our order form. To buy from us, you must provide contact information (like name and shipping address) and financial information (like credit card number, expiration date). This information is used for billing purposes and to fill your orders. If we have trouble processing an order, we'll use this information to contact you.



Cookies
We use "cookies" on this site. A cookie is a piece of data stored on a site visitor's hard drive to help us improve your access to our site and identify repeat visitors to our site. Cookies can also enable us to track and target the interests of our users to enhance the experience on our site. Usage of a cookie is in no way linked to any personally identifiable information on our site.



Google Analytics
We share aggregated demographic information with Google Analytics. This is not linked to any personal information that can identify any individual person. We use analytics partners (such as Google Analytics) to help analyze usage and traffic for our Services. You can opt-out of Google Analytics here: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout

Promotional Communication
You may opt out of receiving some or all categories of promotional communications from us by following the instructions in those communications or by updating your email options.


Third Parties
We use an outside shipping company to ship orders (such as Etsy and USPS), and a credit card processing company to bill users for goods and services. These companies do not retain, share, store or use personally identifiable information for any secondary purposes beyond filling your order. We may partner with third-party advertisers, ad networks, and analytics providers to deliver advertising and content targeted to your interests and to better understand your use of the Services. These third parties may collect information sent by your computer, browser, or mobile device in response to a request for content, such as unique identifiers, your IP address, or other information about your computer or device. You may be able to opt out of some of these services by visiting the Digital Advertising Alliance’s opt-out portal at: http://optout.aboutads.info/

We encourage our users to be aware when they leave our site and to read the privacy statements of any other site that collects personally identifiable information.

Security
We take measures to help protect information about you from loss, theft, misuse and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, and destruction. For example, we use HTTPS while information is being transmitted. We also enforce technical and administrative access controls to limit which of our employees have access to non-public personal information.
