Native Crafts Wholesale recognizes the importance of protecting the privacy of all information provided by users of our web site(hereinafter, the "Site"), recipients of our e-mail newsletters and all of our customers. Through this Internet Privacy Statement, we want to reassure users of the Site that we will not sell, share, or rent user information to others in a manner different than as set forth in this Internet Privacy Statement.
Native Crafts Wholesale collects information from the users of the Site at several different points on the Site. For example, we collect and/or request information when a user:
Places an Order
Registers on the www.nativecrafts.us Site
Requests notification of an order status
Submits an E-mail
In order to fulfill the requests of Site users in the above instances, the user may be requested to provide contact and/or credit card information. If we have trouble processing an order, a request, or completing a delivery, this contact information will be used by Native Crafts Wholesale to contact the user. All of our online ordering systems are encrypted using secure servers. Credit card information is encrypted via secure socket layers (SSL) and submitted directly to PayPal.com, our payment processor, onto their secured servers. We do not store your credit card or bank information on our servers. This means you must give your credit card number each time you order using our shopping cart, but it also means that no hackers can steal your credit card information from us.
Shopping Cart Accounts -- If you create an account on our shopping cart, it stores only your name, address, email and telephone information for quicker use when you log in. You are not required to make an account to place an order -- youll simply have to re-type your address, phone and email information each time you checkout, and you won't be able to track your order online. Creating a shopping cart account does make our ordering system easier to use--for example, if you are in the middle of making an order and your internet connection shuts down, the next time you log in your shopping cart will still contain everything you were about to order and the items on your wishlist.
All pages of our site that collect or store personally identifiable information are protected by a secure socket layer (SSL) connection.

Our Site contains links to external Internet sites as well as co-branded sites, which may be operated by an external party and they may have privacy practices that differ from those here at www.aaanativearts.com. A co-branded site is a Website, usually operated by a third-party, and displaying that third-party's name along with the Native Crafts Wholesale name and logo. Such co-branded sites offer Native Crafts Wholesale approved goods or services to our users. When you click on links that take you to such external or co-branded sites, you will be subject to their privacy policies, and we encourage you to become familiar with that party's privacy policies as these may differ from those utilized on our Site.

CHILDREN'S ON-LINE PRIVACY
Native Crafts Wholesale recognizes the particular importance of protecting the privacy of children. Consistent with the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA), we will not knowingly collect any personally identifiable information from children under the age of 13. When a user makes a purchase on http://www.aaanativearts.com or one of our associated websites, the user is representing to us that they are an adult. If Native Crafts Wholesale becomes aware that any child has accessed Native Crafts Wholesale’s non-publicly available web pages (known as the member's area or My Account), the account thru which the child has gained access will be terminated. If you believe that Native Crafts Wholesale has collected any information from or about anyone under 13, please let us know and we will delete the information pertaining to the child from our records.
We use reasonable precautions to protect our users' personal information and to store it securely. Sensitive information that is transmitted to us online (such as credit card number) is encrypted and is transmitted to us securely. In addition, access to all of our users' information, not just the sensitive information mentioned above, is restricted. Only employees who need the information to perform a specific job (for example, a billing clerk or a customer service representative) are granted access to personally identifiable information. Finally, the servers on which we store personally identifiable information are kept in a secure environment.
Our web site may contain links to other sites. Native Crafts Wholesale is not responsible for the privacy practices or content of such other sites. We encourage our users to be aware when they leave our site and to read the privacy statements of each web site to which we may link that may collect personally identifiable information.
SPECIAL OFFERS, ACCOUNT UPDATES AND OPTING OUT
In order to best serve our customers, we may send updates that contain important information about our sites and services. For example, we send new members a welcoming message, and verify password and username for our password-protected sites. We may also communicate with a user to provide requested services and for account-related issues via e-mail or regular mail. We offer our users the option to receive information about our company, related products, services and special deals. The users of the Site are always given the opportunity to 'opt-out' of having their online information used for purposes not directly related to the Site at the point at which we ask for the information or when they receive an online requested promotional communication. Users of the Site can always update the personally identifying information that they have provided to Native Crafts Wholesale simply by accessing and updating their account information on the site.
In general, you should know that prices and availability are subject to change without notice. Errors will be corrected where discovered. Native Crafts Wholesale reserves the right to revoke any stated offer and to correct any errors, inaccuracies or omissions, including after an order has been submitted, whether or not the order has been confirmed and your credit card charged. If your credit card has already been charged for the purchase and your order is canceled, Native Crafts Wholesale will issue a credit to your credit card account in the amount of the charge. Individual bank policies will dictate when this amount is credited to your account.
