The Hat Lady believes that with the growth of E-Commerce and online activity, the information collected from web store customers should be kept confidential.  We will make reasonable efforts to ensure that information furnished by our customers about themselves will be safeguarded and not be made available to third parties.

Online privacy concerns focus on the protection of information which identifies the customer that an individual reasonably expects to be kept private. Information which identifies that customer is information which can be associated with a specific individual or entity, including, for example, a customer's name, address, or telephone number, E-mail address, and information about online activities that are directly linked to them.

It is often a necessity for companies, governments, or other organizations to collect customer identifiable information in order to conduct regular business and offer services to customers. For example, an E-Commerce store service may collect information which identifies the customer, such as name, address, telephone number, and a variety of other information in the course of billing and providing delivery of products ordered by a customer.

Many activities on the Internet follow very familiar methods as physical stores. Similarly, business web sites may ask visitors to supply information about themselves, particularly when information, services or merchandise are requested, but often simply to be able to better target the company's services to the customer's interests and requirements.

The Hat Lady Online Privacy Policy

The Hat Lady has put in place the following Online Privacy Policy to protect information which identifies the customer. This policy covers The Hat Lady and applies to all information which identifies the customer that The Hat Lady obtains when a customer uses The Hat Lady online purchasing.

Back

Collection and Use: The Hat Lady will collect and use information which identifies that customer for billing purposes, to provide and change service, to anticipate and resolve problems with your service, or to create and inform you of products and services that better meet your needs. This means that The Hat Lady may use your information which identifies that customer, in conjunction with information available from other sources, to market new services to you that we think will be of interest to you, but we will not disclose your customer identifiable information to third parties who want to market products to you.

Changes in Practices: The Hat Lady will make all reasonable efforts to keep this privacy policy current.

Back

Children On The Internet: The Hat Lady supports all legislation regarding the protection of children from supplying information about themselves that may be detrimental to their well-being.  Also, we shall make reasonable efforts to ensure that young teens and minors, who do not have permission to use their parent's / guardian's credit information, do not offer us that information. At this time, we can only inform young teens and minors that they need such permission to offer us that sort of information.  To that extent, we do require all potential customers to indicate that they are at least 18 years of age or older.  We encourage parents and guardians to obtain software, make use of logon passwords, and to safeguard their credit information, from their children and minors in their custody.

Accordingly, The Hat Lady does not target children or teenagers (younger than eighteen years of age) for collection of information online. The Hat Lady does not solicit or collect information which identifies that customer targeted at children and teenagers under eighteen and does not allow anyone else to do so on an The Hat Lady Web Site. In addition, the editorial content of The Hat Lady Web Site is designed so that children will not knowingly promote or link to any third party web site that collects customer identifiable information unless that web site publishes a privacy policy that is easily accessible.
