Information Collection and How it is Used
Crafts&Arts will send you a welcome/confirmation email when you sign up for Crafts&Arts's services. Receipt of this email is required for using Crafts&Arts's services.
Crafts&Arts will send you service-related announcements on rare occasions when it is necessary to do so.
You may not opt-out of service-related communications, which are not promotional in nature. If you do not wish to receive them, you have the option to deactivate your account by emailing support@Crafts&Arts.com from the email address you signed up with.
Crafts&Arts may periodically email you with administrative messages. Crafts&Arts will not sell or rent your personal information to third parties for their marketing purposes without your explicit consent. Your information may be combined with information Crafts&Arts collects from other companies and used to improve and personalize services, content and advertising. If you don't wish to receive administrative messages or participate in these programs, simply opt-out by emailing support@Crafts&Arts.com.
Crafts&Arts offers subscriptions to Crafts&Arts email newsletters. To opt-in, Crafts&Arts will ask for your email address and the newsletter(s) you wish to receive. This email address will only be used for this feature. You may change your subscription or unsubscribe at anytime by following the instructions contained in the email.
"Tell a Friend" allows members to share information about a specific item listed on Crafts&Arts by sending a personalized email message. If you choose to use Crafts&Arts's "Tell a Friend" feature, Crafts&Arts will ask for the information needed to send the message, such as your friend's email address. Crafts&Arts will then automatically send your friend an email, inviting your friend to visit the site. Crafts&Arts does not store "Tell a Friend" information on our servers. Your friend may utilize the "unsubscribe" link in the email to opt-out of receiving future "Tell a Friend" emails from Crafts&Arts.
We utilize a contact-importer feature to help you identify people from your email address books who are current members of Crafts&Arts and invite any other contact to join Crafts&Arts. You may connect directly with your email service provider and import your contacts to Crafts&Arts. When you add contacts to your Crafts&Arts circle, they will automatically receive an email notification. When you invite contacts to join Crafts&Arts, you may preview the email invitation before Crafts&Arts generates and sends it. Recipients of invitations may opt out of receiving future invitations via a convenient link located in the invitation email. If you do not want your contacts to be able to find your Crafts&Arts username through your email address, you may opt out through your account privacy settings.
If you no longer wish to receive administrative messages, you may opt-out by emailing support@Crafts&Arts.com. Please note that if you do not wish to receive administrative messages from us, those notices will still govern your use of the Crafts&Arts website and service, and you are responsible for reviewing such notices for changes.
