Privacy Statement

 

 

Effective Date: November 30, 2015. Reviewed and Updated: July 26, 2019

This privacy notice discloses the privacy practices for Sutura Fabrics on our shop at Etsy.com (hereafter referred to as "Etsy") and on our website at http://www.suturafabrics.com (hereafter referred to as "Sutura Fabrics")

This privacy notice applies solely to information collected by these websites, except where stated otherwise. It will notify you of the following:

●    What information we collect;
●    With whom it is shared;
●    How it can be corrected;
●    How it is secured;
●    How policy changes will be communicated; and
●    How to address concerns over misuse of personal data.

Information Collection, Use, and Sharing 

 

We only have access to/collect information that you voluntarily give us via email or other direct contact from you and through transactions on Etsy or Sutura Fabrics. We will never sell 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 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 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. 

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 provided on our website:

  • 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

Registration 

 

In order to make purchases on Etsy or to sign up for classes from our Sutura Fabrics website, a user must first complete the registration form. During registration a user is required to give certain information (such as name and email address). This information is used to contact you about the classes, products and/or services on our sites in which you have expressed interest. 

Orders 

 

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.


Sutura Fabrics does not retain this information beyond what is necessary for legal purposes and it handled by your choice of Etsy account, PayPal or Wix processing. We do not directly process any transactions.

Sharing 

 

Wix, Etsy and PayPal may share aggregated demographic information with their respective partners and advertisers. This is not linked to any personal information that can identify any individual person. 

Sutura Fabrics will use an outside shipping company to ship orders, and may use a credit card processing company such as Square or PayPal to bill users for goods and services offline and online. To the best of our knowledge, these companies do not retain, share, store or use personally identifiable information for any secondary purposes beyond filling your order.

Wix, Etsy and PayPal may partner with other entities and parties to provide specific products/services. When the user signs up for these services, we 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.

Security 

 

Sutura Fabrics takes precautions to protect your information. When you submit sensitive information via the website, your information is protected both online and offline for the purposes stated above.

Wherever we collect sensitive information (such as credit card data), that information is encrypted and transmitted to us in a secure way. We do not receive the full number of your credit card unless you provide it to us directly (such as for a phone order). 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.

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 (e.g. billing or customer service) are granted access to personally identifiable information. 

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 their experience on our site. Usage of a cookie is in no way linked to any personally identifiable information on our site.


Links 


The Sutura Fabrics web site 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.

Surveys & Contests 

From time-to-time our site requests 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.

Notification of Changes

Whenever material changes are made to the privacy notice we will post a notice on our website and contact you via email if you have opted in to our mailing list.
