At The Bladery, we understand that you are concerned about your privacy.  We have put policies in place to ensure that your personal information is handled safely and responsibly.

We will not sell, share, or rent your information to others.  This privacy statement applies solely to information collected by this Web site.

Online Shopping

When shopping online we request information from you.  You must provide contact information (like name and shipping address) and financial information (like credit card number, expiration date) in order to purchase.  This information is used for billing purposes and to fill your orders.  If we have trouble processing an order, this contact information is used to get in touch with you.  You will not be contacted for anything else unless requested.

Cookies

A cookie is data stored on your hard drive containing information about the use of a site, such as which items are in your shopping cart.  Usage of a cookie is in no way linked to any personally identifiable information while on our site.  Once the you closes your browser, the cookie disappears.  If you choose not to use cookies, you may still use our site.  The only drawback to this is that you may be limited in some areas of our site.

External Links

This web site contains links to other sites. The Bladery is not responsible for the privacy practices of these other sites. We encourage you to be aware of this when you leave our site and to read the privacy statements of each and every web site that collects personally identifiable information.

Website Security

This website takes every precaution to protect your information. When you submit sensitive information via the website, your information is protected online. When our registration/order form asks you to enter sensitive information (such as credit card number and/or social security number), that information is encrypted and is protected with SSL. While on a secure page, such as our order form, the lock icon on Web browsers such as FireFox, Netscape Navigator and Microsoft Internet Explorer becomes locked, as opposed to un-locked, or open, when you are just surfing.

SSL

Short for Secure Sockets Layer, a protocol developed by Netscape for transmitting private documents via the Internet. SSL works by using a private key to encrypt data that’s transferred over the SSL connection. Both Netscape Navigator and Internet Explorer support SSL, and many Web sites use the protocol to obtain confidential user information, such as credit card numbers. By convention, URLs that require an SSL connection start with https: instead of http:
