our privacy policy

In this day and age, the issue of privacy is more important than ever. That’s why Best Friends Studios is committed to protecting our users’ privacy as if it were our own and to ensuring the most secure purchasing environment possible.

We currently use SSL certificates from RapidSSL to secure our webserver.

Best Friends Studios collects information from users in two ways, via registration forms and through the use of cookies. We use your IP address to gather broad demographic information and to help identify you and your shopping cart.

Our site’s registration forms ask for personally identifiable information (i.e. name, billing address, shipping address, phone number, fax number, email address and taxpayer’s identification number, if applicable). The personally identifiable information we collect about our users is stored in limited access servers. We will maintain appropriate safeguards to ensure the security, integrity, and privacy of these servers and of our users’ personally identifiable information. Users may review and update the personally identifiable information they provide to us by contacting us at [email protected]

The personally identifiable information we collect is used in transaction processing and to provide users with personalization options, such as those that allow users to receive e-mail updates of product specials and new product categories. Once registered, users can choose to disable (or enable) any of the personalization options at any time by changing their account within the “My Account” section of the site. Users may also opt-out of receiving future mailings by sending an email to [email protected]

Best Friends Studios employs “cookies” to deliver content specific to your interests and to save your password should you so choose, so you don’t have to re-enter it each time you visit our site. Cookies are also used to track user behavior for a better understanding of our users’ preferences, in aggregate [clarify/describe whether personally identifiable information is used here or if it is anonymous]. This enables us to create new services and enhance current services per these preferences.

Information collected by Best Friends Studios is for internal use only. Under no circumstances will we disclose your email address or any other personal information you provide us with to any third party unless you provide us with explicit authorization to do so or where such disclosure becomes required by law or legal process.

Best Friends Studios contains links to other websites. These websites are not subject to our Privacy Pledge and may have their own individual privacy policies. We recommend that users review the privacy policy at each such website to determine how that website protects its users’ privacy.

Best Friends Studios may change this Privacy Pledge from time to time. We will post any changes here, so be sure to check back periodically.

If you have any questions about our Privacy Pledge or the practices of this site, please contact [email protected]

ATTENTION DOG LOVERS: For personal reasons, I am putting Best Friends Studios on hiatus this summer. Please check back with us in the fall. Thank you for your interest in our dog silhouette stationery! Best, Ellen Mrazek
