Privacy Policy

Effective 11/01/08

This privacy notice discloses the privacy practices for GBOUTWELL.COM. This privacy notice applies solely to information collected by this web site. It will notify you of the following:

  1. What personally identifiable information is collected from you through the web site, how it is used and with whom it may be shared.
  2. What choices are available to you regarding the use of your data.
  3. The security procedures in place to protect the misuse of your information.
  4. How you can correct any inaccuracies in the information.

Information Collection, Use, and Sharing
We are the sole owners of the information collected on this site. We only have access to/collect information that you voluntarily give us via email or other direct contact from you. We will not sell or rent this information to anyone. We will use your information to respond to you, regarding the reason you contacted us. We will not share your information with any third party outside of our organization, other than as necessary to fulfill your request, e.g. to ship an order.

Information collected from you, such as e-mail addresses and phone numbers, is used by us for the sole purpose of communicating with you about orders you have placed or questions you have asked.

Our E-Mail List
If you sign up for our e-mail list, we will send you notices when we are appearing at shows in your area. We may also send you a newsletter 2-3 times per year. Our mailing lists are created solely for the purpose of communicating with our subscribers. We never sell lists to other companies, nor do we use our lists to send you unwanted e-mail.

It is for this reason we use a double opt-in subscription system; you must actually want to receive our e-mail before we'll send it to you.

Don’t worry, I won’t be driving you crazy like some online newsletters. You will only get this three times a year, because we are not a big time corporation and do not have a website staff. Since I need to get some painting done and I also do the website work, you can see why we won't be beating you to death with online newsletters every day! I still do the printed version for those who don’t have e-mail and yes, you will still get our printed catalog in the fall if you are on our mailing list.

We will never ever under any circumstances share your name, address, e-mail address or any other information about you to anyone or any company for any reason whatsoever! Your business and your trust are vital to us and we will never violate that trust!

Your Access to and Control Over Information
You may opt out of any future contacts from us at any time. You can do the following at any time by contacting us via the email address or phone number given on our website:

  • See what data we have about you, if any.
  • Change/correct any data we have about you.
  • Have us delete any data we have about you.
  • Express any concern you have about our use of your data.

We request information from you on our order form. To buy from us, you must provide contact information (like name and shipping address) and financial information (like credit card number, expiration date). This information is used for billing purposes and to fill your orders. If we have trouble processing an order, we’ll use this information to contact you.

We use “cookies” on this site if you use our shopping cart. A cookie is a piece of data stored on a site visitor’s hard drive to help us improve your access to our site. We do not use cookies to track and target the browsing habits of our users. Cookies do not collect or transmit to us personal information stored on your computer.

We take precautions to protect your information. When you submit sensitive information via the website, your information is protected both online and offline.

Wherever we collect sensitive information (such as credit card data), that information is encrypted and transmitted to us in a secure way. You can verify this by looking for a closed lock icon at the bottom of your web browser, or looking for “https” at the beginning of the address of the web page.

While we use encryption to protect sensitive information transmitted online, we also protect your information offline. Only employees who need the information to perform a specific job (for example, billing or customer service) are granted access to personally identifiable information. The computers/servers in which we store personally identifiable information are kept in a secure environment.

If you feel that we are not abiding by this privacy policy, you should contact us immediately via telephone at 254-675-6676 or via email.
