Privacy

Your privacy is important to us. Please take a moment to read our Privacy Policy below.

Information We Collect

  • Policy – It is our policy to collect only the personally identifiable information (PII) that we need to provide the services of this website with the quality you desire and deserve.

  • Website Visitors – When you access our website, we automatically collect access log information about your visit, including information such as the Internet Protocol (IP) addresses assigned (numbers assigned to your computer while online), bandwidth used, system and connection performance, browsers used, dates and times of access, and Internet resource requests.

  • Online Registrants – In visiting our website, if you register with us or participate in a contest, we may ask for certain PII. When we ask you for such information, we will tell you how it will be used and you may elect not to participate.

  • Orders—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.

  • Surveys and Contests—From time-to-time our site may request information via surveys or contests. Participation in these surveys or contests is completely voluntary and you may choose whether or not to participate and therefore disclose this information. Information requested may include contact information (such as name and shipping address), and demographic information (such as zip code, age level). Contact information will be used to notify the winners and award prizes. Survey information will be used for purposes of monitoring or improving the use and satisfaction of this site.

  • Links—This website contains links to other sites. Please be aware that we are not responsible for the content or privacy practices of such other sites. 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.

  • Cookies – We, or a vendor that places advertising on our websites, may use "cookies" to collect information about your visit to our website and to manage information concerning your preferences. A "cookie" is a small computer code added to a file on your computer as a record of its visit. It does not collect or provide your name or any other personal information about you. It can, however, be used to note information about your visit, such as your type of web browser, operating system and Internet Protocol ("IP") address, to better tailor the site for you. It can also be used to recognize you when you log in as a registered user or as a repeat visitor returning to our website. This allows us to tailor our site by remembering you and any options you select. We may share non-personal information obtained from the varying kinds of cookies with vendors, advertisers and others. You can control what cookies are accepted by your computer through the settings on your web browser or by deleting them from your files. Doing so, however, may limit the personalization available to you.

  • Third-Party Cookies and Web Beacons – These forms of computer code are sometimes placed by advertisers or others with connection to a webpage and may be read by the advertisement’s provider. They may use a form of code called a "web beacon" or "clear GIF." These are usually contained in a transparent image on a page or in an image on an email message and serve as a way to gather information about your visit, such as your Internet Protocol ("IP") Address and information or statistics about your visit. As with cookies, you can use your browser or app settings to control web beacons.

  • Advertisers and Other Websites – We do not control the privacy policies of advertisers or of websites you may link to from our websites (including affiliate sites) or by using our services and are not liable for their use of your information, PII or otherwise. You should review their websites for questions about their Internet security and privacy.

Use and Sharing

  • Use Policy – We consider any PII we receive about you to be confidential, and it is our policy to use it only in providing our websites and services – sales, billing, marketing and shop support.

  • Aggregate Information – We use aggregate information about our customers and website visitors for analytical purposes. Such aggregate information does not identify individual customers.

  • Retention Policy – We may retain personal customer information in its regular business records as long as someone is a customer or until no longer needed for business or legal purposes.

  • Sharing Policy – It is our overall policy not to disclose to others outside of Betsy Gibson Design LLC, vendors and business partners any PII about our customers without their prior consent. We do not sell or provide your personal information to parties unconnected with the services we provide without your permission.

  • Special Exceptions – We reserve the right to disclose PII in our possession if we have a good faith belief that it is necessary to: (1) comply with the law or legal process served on us; (2) protect and defend our rights or property or those of others; (3) respond to fraud, abuse or unauthorized use of our services; (4) enforce our Website Visitors’ Agreement and Terms of Use, our Acceptable Use Policy or related standards; or (5) act in an emergency to protect your safety or that of another. We may also share information if we sell or transfer all or a portion of our business operations, merge or combine with another organization.

  • Third Parties – We sometimes use affiliates, vendors or third party partners in association with this website and may provide PII about users for such purposes (shipping information, for example). In providing such information, we require that the outside party maintain at least the same level of confidentiality that we maintain for such information. In addition, any use by the vendor or third party may not exceed that needed to provide its service.

  • Internet Communications – Unless addressed to us, we do not read email messages, instant messages, online chats, or the content of other online communications. We may, however, retain and provide such communications if we are legally required to do so. Incoming and outgoing email messages are generally scanned electronically to identify and filter out likely spam and for viruses or related problems that could harm your equipment, the network or other users.

Internet Security

  • Personal Information – We use "Secure Socket Layer" encryption technology when collecting certain personal information through our website. You can identify the use of such protection by looking for "https" in the Internet URLor page address or a closed lock symbol if you are using Internet Explorer.

Affiliate Links

  • Please Note—Our pages may contain affiliate links, meaning that we receive commissions for purchases made through those links, at no cost to you.

Spam

The law permits companies to use email to send transactional or relationship messages, such as in confirming that a service has been completed or providing information regarding changes in order or delivery status. If you prefer, you may opt-out of marketing messages we may send by notifying us in response to any you may receive.

Children's Privacy

Our websites are not directed at, or intended for use by, children under the age of 13. We do not knowingly allow anyone under 18 to provide any personal information on our websites. Children should always get permission from a parent or guardian before sending personal information over the Internet. If you believe your child may have provided us with personal information, you can contact us directly, and we will delete the information. You can find more information about protecting children’s privacy by contacting the FTC or viewing its website at http://www.ftc.gov.

Changes in Policy

Developments in the Internet, the law, our offerings and websites may cause us to change this Online Privacy Policy from time to time. Any such changes will be prospective and will not affect information collected prior to the change in policy.
