Welcome to BeadedNecklaces! Your privacy is important to us. To better protect your privacy and our brand, we provide this notice explaining our online information practices and the choices you can make about how your information is collected and used.
Forms on our site
We also collect personally identifying information like your email address, website URL, and Internet Protocol (IP) addresses when you submit a form. We don’t make this information available, and if we don’t need the data, we don’t collect it on the form. We use your personally identifying information like your email address to reach back to you and reply to your questions.
When you make purchases, we are required to gather personally-identifying information. How much and what type of information that we gather depends on the nature of the interaction. If you buy anything, we collect the personal and financial information required to process your purchase and pass it to our payment gateway – PayPal. In each case, we only collect what we need to deliver what you’re requesting. And we don’t disclose that information in ways other than how we articulate them here in this policy.
Purchasing from outside of the US?
For individuals in the European Economic Area (EEA), your data may be transferred outside of the EEA. Where your personal data is transferred outside the EEA, it will only be transferred to countries that have been identified as providing adequate protection for EEA data or to a third party where we have approved transfer mechanisms in place to protect your personal data – i.e., by entering into the European Commission’s Standard Contractual Clauses, or by ensuring the entity is Privacy Shield certified (for transfers to US-based third parties). Please contact us using the details set out in the “Contact me” section below for further information.
It’s your personal data, and you have certain rights relating to it. When it comes to marketing communications, you can ask me not to send you these at any time by following the unsubscribe instructions in the marketing communication or sending your request to the email below in the “Contact me” section.
Depending on your country, you may have a right or choice to:
- Access your personal data, update it, restrict or object to its processing, or request its deletion
- Receive the personal data you provided to transmit it to another company
- Withdraw any consent provided
- Where applicable, complain with your supervisory authority
The length of time we keep your personal data depends on what it is and whether we have an ongoing business need to retain it (for example, to provide you with a service you’ve requested or to comply with applicable legal, tax, or accounting requirements).
We’ll retain your personal data for as long as we have a relationship with you and for a period of time afterward where we have an ongoing business need to retain it according to our data retention policies and practices. Following that period, we’ll delete or anonymize it.
You can exercise these rights at any time by sending us an email. See the “Contact me” section below.
If you’re not happy with how we are processing your personal data, please let us know by sending an email. We will review and investigate your complaint and get back to you within a reasonable time frame.
Employees, contractors & your information
We only share your personal information to process certain purchases where we may be using an employee, contractor, or partner to help us fulfill your requests. Each of these folks has agreed not to disclose it to others. We don’t rent or sell your personally identifying information to anyone, including any partners we may be using (which are listed below).
Our partners and your data
- Google Analytics – Your browsing data, navigational paths, and time of visit are being captured but anonymized.
- Vimeo / YouTube – We may enable embedded videos. These sites may capture browser and IP data but are never passed additional personally identifying data (like your name/email) from us.
Protecting your data
We are doing everything we can and know of to reasonably protect against any unauthorized access or use of potentially personally-identifying and personally identifying information.
If you have questions or want to talk about any of this, feel free to reach Pam Elcik by email at pam@BeadedNecklaces.com.
