Information Collection and Use
Tropical Scrapbooking is the sole owner of the information collected on this site. We will not sell, share, or rent this information to others in ways different from what is disclosed in this statement. Tropical Scrapbooking collects information from our users at several different points on our website.
We request information from the user on our order form. Here a user 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 customer’s orders. If we have trouble processing an order, this contact information is used to get in touch with the user.
In order to facilitate use of our website, a user may register. This enables the user to Logon and avoid having to enter their contact data each time they place an order. During registration a user is required to give their contact information (such as name and email address). This information is used as with Orders above. This information is used for billing purposes and to fill customer’s orders. If we have trouble processing an order, this contact information is used to get in touch with the user.
We use anonymous customer ID numbers to analyze trends, administer the site, track user’s movement, and gather broad demographic information for aggregate use. Anonymous customer ID numbers are not linked to personally identifiable information.
We do not share your personal information or aggregated demographic information.
We use outside shipping companies to ship orders, and credit card processing companies and other payment companies (such as PayPal) to bill users for goods and services. Credit card processing companies do not retain, share, store or use personally identifiable information for any secondary purposes. Please see PayPal's Privacy Statement for their policies regarding user information.
This web site contains links to other sites. Please be aware that we [TROPICAL SCRAPBOOKING] are not responsible for the 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 each and every web site that collects personally identifiable information. This privacy statement applies solely to information collected by this Web site.
This website takes every precaution to protect our users’ information. When users submit sensitive information via the website, your information is protected both online and off-line.
When our registration/order form asks users to enter sensitive information (such as credit card numbers and expiration dates), that information is encrypted and is protected with the best encryption software in the industry - SSL (Secury Socket Layers). While on a secure page, such as our order form, the lock icon on the bottom of Web browsers such as Netscape Navigator and Microsoft Internet Explorer becomes locked, as opposed to un-locked, or open, when you are just ‘surfing’.
While we use SSL encryption to protect sensitive information online, we also do everything in our power to protect user-information off-line. All of our users’ information, not just the sensitive information mentioned above, is restricted in our offices. Only employees who need the information to perform a specific job (for example, our billing clerk or a customer service representative) are granted access to personally identifiable information.
Newsletters, Special Offers, and Product Updates
Upon request, users can sign up to receive occasional information on products, services, special deals, and a newsletter. This service is only available to those who request it. To sign up for such newsletters and notices, we ask for contact information such as name and email address. Users may also remove themselves from this list by clicking on the unsubscribe at the bottom of every newsletter email.
Correction/Updating Personal Information
If a user’s personally identifiable information changes (such as your zip code), the user may logon and update their personal data provided to us. Additionally, user information can be deleted by clicking here to send an email requesting the deletion of their account.
