I have created this privacy statement in order to demonstrate
my firm commitment to your privacy. I've designed my website
with my customers in mind and want to continue to provide the
kind of online experience that is meaningful and interesting
to those that visit my website. I have chosen not to incorporate ecommerce

share or resell your private information to anyone except as
noted below under "Information Collected".
In order to process your order and serve you better, I collect
personably identifiable information: your name, shipping and
billing information, e-mail address, phone number, credit card
number, expiration date and 3-digit CVV2 Security Code. This information is NOT
shared with anyone except the specific shipping information I
share with my manufacturer noted below.***
Giving me the 3-digit CVV2
Security Code from the back of your card is essential to your
protection. It tells
me that you are the cardholder, rather than someone who has collected
your credit card number and expiration date through illegal means.
If my customer cannot give me the CVV2 Security Code, I will
not process the order.
***My tuning forks are shipped directly
from my manufacturer, so I must share your name and address
with them so that they can ship your order. If they are shipping
outside the USA, I may be required to provide your phone number
to the shipping service such as US Postal Service. I am not
responsible for what my manufacturer, or the US Postal Service,
UPS, Fed Ex, foreign postal services, or any other mail service
does with your information.

I do NOT keep
any collected information on my computer system in QuickBooks
or Outlook EXCEPT your name and address; I store
your email and/or phone number as well if I am
given that information by you. No credit card information
is stored anywhere on my computer or external devices.
Your order is placed using a
credit/debit card machine in my office. I key in your credit/debit

address and the amount of your purchase. This information is
then batched out to my merchant account with Elavon at the end
of the day. No one has access to the credit card machine except
me. Paper receipts which have the last 4 digits of your card
# are kept safely in storage for 1 year and then shredded, which
is a requirement from Elavon. Any other documents with cutomer
personal information are also shredded.

have no employees or anyone else with access to this office.

When an order is processed,
I email you a RECEIPT detailing your order. Other times I will

I will call your phone number
only if there is a problem processing your credit card, questions
