Our "Privacy" Policy

At the Toadlena Trading Post web site, we respect the privacy needs of our valued customers and members. This Privacy Policy outlines what specific information is gathered on this web site and how that information is used.

By participating in the Online Privacy Alliance, the Toadlena Trading Post web site supports the standards of TrustE—an independent third party assessment and validation program that ensures our Web site complies with strict standards for online privacy, security, business practices, transaction integrity and availability. If you have any specific questions about this Privacy Statement, please contact us via email at

Collection and Use of Information by Our Web Site

The Toadlena Trading Post web site explicitly asks when we need information that personally identifies you (“Personal Information”). Your personal information is used to create your personal access to products on the site, and to contact you in the course of using the products. Financial information that is collected is used to verify identity, and to bill either you or your company for products and services, as applicable. Demographic and profile data collected by the web site may be used to tailor the web site or any requested email communications, and to display information that is more relevant to you. The Toadlena Trading Post web site also compiles demographic and product use information, but in the aggregate only, and may make that aggregate information publicly available. Under no circumstances will the Toadlena Trading Post web site make any personal information about an individual user available to anyone.

Your email address is only used to send you information that you have requested. The Toadlena Trading Post web site allows you to elect to receive, or not receive, certain information from us or our partners. The Toadlena Trading Post web site adheres strictly to permission-based email policy. Except as mentioned above, we will not send you unsolicited email information, commercial offers or advertisements. The Toadlena Trading Post web site will not sell, rent, or loan our customer contact lists (including customer data) to any outside firms. All emails that you have agreed to receive will have an option to unsubscribe. Unsubscribe requests are fulfilled within minutes and no further communications will be sent to users who have stated that they do not wish to receive the specified information after they unsubscribe following the unsubscribe procedure. Any Toadlena Trading Post web site partners who offer you information via email from our Web site must adhere to this unsubscribe policy.

While IP addresses (address of a computer) are logged to track a user's session, the user's identity is anonymous. Tracking IP addresses gives the web site information about which parts of our site are used most often and what information is viewed. IP addresses are not linked to anything that can personally identify a visitor. Thus, session details are tracked, but the user is anonymous.

Information Use by Third Parties

It is the Toadlena Trading Post web site policy to never provide your personal information to third parties without your express permission or only in instances where such disclosure is necessary to process transactions or provide services that you have requested. We do not release personal information about you as an individual. There are two exceptions to this policy. One: If the Toadlena Trading Post web site is compelled to do so by an appropriately empowered governmental authority. Two: If the Toadlena Trading Post web site makes services available to you through its business partners. The Toadlena Trading Post web site will not share with them any more information than is necessary to perform the transaction you have requested. This web site only does business with partners who agree to respect our Privacy Policy.

Contact Lists, Campaign Content and Campaign Reports

The web site ensures that all contact lists, email content and reports remain private and confidential. The Toadlena Trading Post web site will not sell, rent, loan or invite external access to a customer's contact information.

Information Exchanges and Transactions

SSL technology has been implemented throughout our application system. Information exchanges and transactions, including authentication, passwords, contact lists (uploading and storing online) and billing related data between you and our application system are strictly protected using this technology. This ensures that your session is completely private and secure from both external systems and other customers using our system.

Credit Card Information

The Toadlena Trading Post web site allows you to purchase weavings and other items for sale. When credit card billing is chosen, information is transferred to the Toadlena Trading Post web site's Clearing House Partner using industry-leading, secure transmission technology including SSL and HTTPS (the transmission standard used for transactions by major financial institutions). The information is then encrypted using Data Encryption Standard 3 (Triple DES) and stored securely so that it is ready to handle your transactions. Financial transactions are verified through VeriSign®, the leading provider of Internet security solutions. VeriSign is accredited by all major Security, Privacy and Certification Authorities (CAs).

The Bottom Line
