Pat on the Back Customer Internet Privacy Statement

Protecting consumer privacy is important to Pat. We hope the following statement will help you understand how Pat on the Back collects, uses and safeguards the personal information you provide to us on our site

I. Information collected online
Pat only collects information consumers have voluntarily provided. This includes consumers' e-mail addresses. Cookies are used by the shopping cart software to remember what consumers have put in their baskets. That's it! These are used so that the consumer need not reenter all products into a basket should a consumer prefer to shop at a more convenient time.

II. How information Pat collects is used or shared
Pat collects information only to complete a transaction. Personal information (such as name, address, survey responses and e-mail addresses) collected is only used to further market Pat's products by Pat herself. Personal information (name and address only) are only rarely disclosed to a third party. Example: Postcards are sent by show promoters as a convenience to Pat at fairs that Pat personally attends. Pat prefers to keep her wonderful customers to herself!

III. Choices available to consumers regarding the marketing uses of the collected information
An easy mechanism is provided for consumers to opt out of having personal information Pat collects used for marketing. Simply send Pat an e-mail to confirm that Pat has received your opt out choice, to review the choices you have made, or to make changes to the choices indicated. Opt out will take at least 24 hours. Please put a subject in the subject line. E-mails without subjects are assumed to be spam, and automatically deleted.

IV. How Pat handles consumer inquiries about their information or her privacy policy
Contact Pat for her e-mail. For her own privacy, and due to SPAM and telemarketing, Pat's phone and fax numbers are not listed on this website, but are voluntarily given when you make a request. This is primarily to keep automated web search programs from sending spam to Pat. Pat respects your privacy for the same reasons. Add an item to your basket and Pat's e-mail and direct line will appear.

V. How Pat protects online information
Pat's site uses industry standards protocols that encrypts personal information being transferred over the Internet. We use a secured channel to encrypt personal information being transferred between you and us.
