Privacy Policy
for
David Robertson Artist Blacksmith
www.artistblacksmith.com
and
The Hammer and Tongs

As of Jan. 1 , 2004 The Canadian government has required all businesses to develop a privacy of information policy. This document is in response to that policy, and outlines how I treat the information that you provide me.

Consent:
I generally assume that if you provide me with contact information (address, telephone, email, etc.) that this is giving me consent to use this information to contact you. I do not sell or trade contact information of individuals, but will refer businesses.

Financial Info:
Credit card information is not stored on the computer but is kept separate in a locked filling cabinet. Due to the recent increase in costs associated with Visa, credit card transactions will be processed on the day of shipping not 30 days later for wholesale customers. Pay Pal is now another option available.

Contact Info:
If you are an individual I generally do not pass on your contact information. If you are a business I will refer your business to people looking for a specific product or service, either in writing, email or conversation. It becomes the person's responsibility to look your business up for further contact.

Students:
Occaisionally while teaching a course I will photograph the students for the purpose of advertising. This may mean that your picture could be published on the web. In these pictures I may use first name identifiers. I will upon occaission use the information that you have provided me to send you course updates, or notification of up coming events, or specfic pieces of information. If you do not wish this form of contact it is your responsibility to inform me and I will remove you from my mailing list.

Links:
Many of the links on the website will lead to sponsor websites.  In part I am able to keep this website running from purchases from other websites that yeild a commision to me. This helps support my costs as I am in business.

Membership
If you sign up to be a member of my website I will send you emailed information about blacksmithing and related topics. Some of this information may be sales related and may contain links to my products or other people's products that I make a commision on referals.  These payments help defer the costs of providing ongoing information to you about blacksmithing and metal work in general. You may unsubscribe at any time by clicking the link at the bottom of the emails sent to you or by contacting me directly.

I, David Robertson am the Privacy Officer for the Hammer and Tongs and www.artistblacksmith.com. If you need,  you may contact me if you have questions about this policy.
