Privacy Policy

Privacy Policy

We recognize that members of our community, public or not, face significant challenges in our social atmosphere. Accordingly, your privacy is very important to us, and we value the trust our clients place in us to keep their information secure. This Privacy Policy discloses the privacy practices for TwinCitiesLeather.com. This privacy notice applies solely to information collected by this website. It will notify you (the client) of the following:

  1. The personally identifiable information collected from you through the website, how it is used, and with whom it may be shared.
  2. The choices available to you regarding the use of your data.
  3. The security procedures in place to protect the misuse of your information.
  4. The process to correct any inaccuracies in the information.

Information Collection, Use, and Sharing

We are the sole owners of the information collected on this site. We only have access to collect information that you voluntarily give us via email or other direct contact from you.

We will not sell, share or rent this information to anyone. We will use your information to respond to you, regarding the reason you contacted us. We will not share/sell your information with any third party outside of our organization, other than as necessary to fulfill your request “e.g. to ship an order”.

Unless you ask us to, we will not contact you via email in the future to tell you about specials, new products or services, or changes to this privacy policy. Users of this site are not automatically signed up for any e-mail marketing or notification lists and those who choose to participate must affirmatively opt-in by signing up. Once added to this list, participants may opt-out at any time by using the "Unsubscribe" link located at the bottom of every e-mail.

Your Access to and Control Over Information

You may opt out of any future contacts from us at any time. You can do the following at any time by contacting us via the email address or phone number given at the bottom of every page of this site:

  • See what data we have about you, if any.
  • Change/correct any data we have about you.
  • Have us delete any data we have about you.
  • Express any concern you have about our use of your data.

Security

We take precautions to protect your information. When you submit sensitive information via the website, your information is protected both online and offline. Wherever we collect sensitive information (such as credit card data), that information is encrypted and transmitted to us 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. For maximum security, ALL pages on this site are encrypted for delivery. Your web browser should verify this "secured" status no matter what page of the site you are viewing.

While we use encryption to protect sensitive information transmitted online, we also protect your information offline. Only employees who need the information to perform a specific job (for example, billing or customer service) are granted access to personally identifiable information. The computers/servers in which we store personally identifiable information are kept in a secure environment.

Orders

We request information from you on our order form. To buy from us, you must provide contact information (name and shipping address) and financial information (credit card number, expiration date). This information is used for billing purposes and to fill your orders. Credit card numbers are stored in our database only in a truncated format (i.e. only the last 4-digits and expiration date). If we have trouble processing an order, we’ll use this information to contact you.

Please see our Processing/Shipping Policies for more information on steps we take to protect your privacy when shipping packages. We pledge to never send you direct marketing mail to your home address.

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. For instance, when we use a cookie to identify you, you would not have to log in a password more than once, thereby saving time while on 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.

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.
