Information Collection, Use, and Sharing
TheMagicCrafter.com is the sole owner of the information collected on this site. I only have access to/collect information that you voluntarily give me via email or other direct contact from you. I will not sell or rent this information to anyone.
I will use your information to respond to you, regarding the reason you contacted me. I will not share your information with any third party outside of our organization, other than as necessary to fulfill your request, e.g. to ship an order.
Your Access to and Control Over Information
You may opt out of any future contacts from me and TheMagicCrafter.com at any time. You can do the following whenever you would like by contacting me via the email address that is given on my website (TheMagicCrafterBoutique@gmail.com):
• See what data that I have about you, if any.
• Change/correct any data I have about you.
• Have me delete any data that I have about you.
• Express any concern that you have about my use of your data.
I take precautions to protect your information. You can feel safe knowing that when you submit sensitive information via the website, your information is protected both online and offline.
Wherever TheMagicCrafter.com collects sensitive information (such as credit card data), that information is encrypted and transmitted to me in a secure way. You can verify this by looking for a closed lock icon at the bottom of your web browser, or looking for "https" at the beginning of the address of the web page. (Which is a trick that I just learned about... awesome!!!)
While I use encryption to protect sensitive information transmitted online, I also protect your information offline. Only employees (such as my "Mertenders/merwranglers") who need the information to perform a specific job (for example, billing or customer service, finding the location of your event) are granted access to personally identifiable information. The computers/servers in which I store personally identifiable information are kept in a secure environment.
I may request information from you on certain order forms throughout the website. To purchase services and certain products from me, 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 I have trouble processing an order, I will use this information to contact you so that we can get the situation taken care of.
I use something called "cookies" on this website (no, they do not come in chocolate chip!). A cookie is a piece of data stored on a website visitor's hard drive to help me and certain Third Party Websites/ Third Party Services, as applicable, to improve your access to TheMagicCrafter.com and identify repeat visitors to the website. (Cookies are very curious creatures!) For instance, when my website uses a cookie to identify you, you would not have to log in a password more than once, which saves you time while on the website. (Though... you don't have to worry about logging in, since I don't have a log-in option... but the example is nice!) Cookies can also allow me and Third Party Services/ Third Party Websites, when applicable, to track and target the interests of users of my website to enhance their experience while here. Usage of a cookie is in no way linked to any personally identifiable information on my website. (Basically, they just want to know what it is that you like!)
I use the Third Party Service, www.SquareSpace.com to host my website and TheMagicCrafter.com may contain links to other Third Party Services or Third Party Websites. I share aggregated demographic information with my partners and advertisers. This is not linked to any personal information that can identify any individual person.
If/when orders are placed through this website (though right now, you can only purchase physical goods through my Etsy Store) I use an outside shipping company to ship orders, 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.
I may also partner with another party to provide specific services (such as an email newsletter service). When/if you, the user, signs up for these services, TheMagicCrafter.com will share names, or other contact information that is necessary for the third party to provide these services. These parties are not allowed to use personally identifiable information except for the purpose of providing these services.
This website (TheMagicCrafter.com) contains links to other websites of which I do not have control over. Please do be aware that I am not responsible for any of the content or privacy practices of such other websites and that when you visit them, you are stepping out of the magical world of TheMagicCrafter.com, and off onto another website. I encourage you to be aware of this when you leave my website and to always be certain to read the Privacy Policies and Terms of Service of any other website that collects personally identifiable information. (Though, if you're reading this right now, I'm going to assume that you already do take the time to read the Privacy Policies of other websites... in which case, good for you!)
Have a Magical Day!!
