The Patternbase takes the privacy of our customers and clients very seriously. We value our customers and respect your privacy. We collect information about you through our website in an effort to communicate with you about our products, services and promotions. Neither your name nor anything about you is sold or shared with any other non-affiliated company or agency.
TYPES OF INFORMATION COLLECTED
What we collect and how we use it: The phrases “personally identifiable information” or “personal information” mean any information by which you can be identified, such as your name, address, telephone number, etc. You can visit most of our web pages without telling us who you are or revealing any personal information about yourself. If we do collect such personally identifiable information, we typically use it for the purpose of enabling us to contact you directly, for contests and for promotions for example. The following are some examples of how such information might be collected and used:
EMAIL NEWSLETTER AND PROMOTION
Our email newsletter is used to communicate new product availability, upcoming events, sales, and promotions. If a user requests to receive our email newsletters, they need to provide a valid e-mail address.
When purchasing prints or products from The Patternbase, we may ask you to provide certain information about yourself, such as your name, shipping or billing address, telephone number, email address, credit card information, etc. We also maintain a record of your online product purchases. Whether or not to provide such information is completely your own choice. But if you choose not to provide the information we request, you may be unable to purchase products, or access certain services, offers and content on our web site as a guest.
How you can access, change, or delete your information and preferences: We want to communicate with you only if you want to hear from us. If you prefer not to receive information from us please let us know by sending your written request via email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please provide your full name, mailing address, email address, and phone number when making this request. Tell us specifically what information you do not want to receive. Please note that it may take up to two weeks for your request to become effective.

You are responsible for maintaining the secrecy of your password and account information. Remember to sign out of your account and close your browser window when you have completed your shopping to help ensure that others cannot access your personal information.
