Here’s the lowdown, my friends: I collect and store your information in order to provide the products you have ordered from me. I need your email address to send you an order confirmation, your name to mail you your jewelry, and so on! If you subscribed to my newsletter, I will email on occasion to give you the heads up about sales, new collections when they drop, and my event schedule if you’d like to shop in person. To sum up, the only thing I do with your data is use it to facilitate your acquisition of cute accessories!
Want more details than that? Just click on the tabs below!
Where does your information go when you purchase something from Nine Birds?
Why, it goes to www.nine-birds.com, of course! Your name, email address, and address are stored on the website for the purpose of me sending your order to you! I save your order details indefinitely, in case you ever have a future inquiry about the pieces you purchased, the tracking information, etc. Pretty wild, I know! Would you like me to cease storing your information after your order has been fulfilled? Just shoot me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will delete it.
But also to Mailchimp! If you make a purchase, your name and email address are also stored with Mailchimp, which is my email newsletter service. To remove your data from their care, you can unsubscribe from the newsletter at any time by clicking the “unsubscribe” button at the bottom of the email you received.
The only thing more fun than making cute jewelry is making people look at your cute jewelry! So if you sign up for my newsletter, I am going to occasionally send you an email about new collections I’m dropping (so you can see how cute they are), upcoming sales (so you can get the cute stuff at a discount), and my schedule of pop-ups and events (so you can see the cute stuff IN PERSON!)
Mailchimp automatically tracks email statistics, so I will know if you open it, don’t open it, click on a link, or unsubscribe entirely. I’m not saying I will be literally heartbroken if I see you not open the newsletter but I’m not NOT saying that. Anyway the point is, this data is tracked automatically, and I don’t even really use it or look at it, but it’s just always happening anyway.
First of all, if you decide to post a product review, you are the actual best and I love you. That has nothing to do with online privacy, I just have a lot of positive feels re: people reviewing products.
When you review a product on the site, the info you see in the comments form (your name, email address, and the review itself) are stored on the site indefinitely. Your IP address is also collected to help with spam detection. It doesn’t really help, getting rid of spam is basically impossible, but I’m doing my best over here.
If you do not want me to store any of your information anymore, that’s totally cool! I get it. Sometimes I think about how much my own personal data has been circulated around the incomprehensible, immense superstructure that is the internet and I’m like… haha, oh, yikes. I need to keep your purchase history in order to do my taxes, but if you would like me to delete all of the other information I have stored regarding you, please email me at email@example.com and it shall be done. Please keep in mind that Paypal and Stripe store data separately from me, and you will need to take it up with them if you want them to throw your old payment details into the garbage.
