For PDF edition: Privacy-Policy.pdf
At Diecastmodels-Inheritance.com I respect your privacy and take protecting it seriously. This Privacy Promise covers my collection, use and disclosure of information I collect through this website and service. This site is owned and operated by Ruth Marlene Friesen under the business name, Bouquet of Enterprises Inc.
This shopping site is dedicated to my brother Tom E. Friesen. It was his dying wish, and he reminded me from time to time, that I was to sell his collections of diecast models and to see that his two daughters got the profits as their inheritance.
IF and When visitors leave comments on the site I collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.
All information I receive about Customers is held in strict confidence. However, when you are about to purchase something, you might be passed to a secure server with a third-party, such as PayPal or Stripe. They notify me by email when the sale is completed. Aside from writing to thank you, and/or further emails if you have subscribed to my newsletter, I do not use your name and email or purchase details for anything else. For sure, I do not sell or share your information with anyone! I only collect information like your name, email address, mailing address, phone number, and billing information so we can provide the product(s) you ordered, and the email marketing services described on the website. Since this is not a membership site, you don’t need to worry about closing your account. There is none to close.
If You are in a European Country I am well aware of your General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), in preparing this Privacy document, I see that all the rights and privileges that GDPR law would give you are provided here for you and for every other visitor that comes to my site. It just makes good sense, since I want to honour all my visitors and customers.
Although I can hardly see how this could become necessary, I reserve the right to disclose your personal information as required by law, such as to comply with a subpoena, bankruptcy proceedings or similar legal process, and when we believe that disclosure is necessary to protect our rights, protect your safety or the safety of others, fraud investigations and/or to comply with a judicial proceeding, court order, or legal process served on our website.
Also VERY unlikely, but, in the event we go through a business transition, such as a merger, acquisition by another company, or sale of all or a portion of its assets, your personal information might be among the assets transferred. Only if you are a frequent customer, and then you would be notified in advance via email of any such change in ownership or control of your personal information.
Upon request I will provide you with information about whether we hold any of your personal information, obtained through contact forms or orders. If your personal information changes, or if you no longer desire our service, you may correct, update, delete or deactivate it by contacting me here via my contact form: Let's Connect.
I will first confirm that you are who you say you are, and then, if that proves correct, do my best to carry out your wishes. I will retain your information for as long as needed to provide you services. I will retain and use your information as necessary to comply with my legal obligations, to resolve disputes, and enforce our agreements.
I follow generally accepted standards to protect the personal information submitted to us, both during transmission and once I receive it. No method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure, however. Therefore, we cannot guarantee its absolute security. If you have any questions about security on this website, you can contact me directly.
If you visit our site, we will set a temporary cookie to determine if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie contains no personal data and is discarded when you close your browser.
When you create a customer account, we will also set up several cookies to save your login information and your screen display choices. [Note: I don’t think this applies on a Static site as this is now. Login cookies last for two days, and screen options cookies last for a year. If you select "Remember Me", your login will persist for two weeks. If you log out of your account, the login cookies will be removed.]
Cookies are small pieces of text sent by our website to your web browser. A cookie file is stored in your web browser and allows our system, and some other service providers to recognize you and make your next visit easier and our service more useful to you. Affiliates, or analytics or services providers use technologies, such as cookies, beacons, tags, and scripts, to analyze trends, administer our website, tracking users' movements around the website, and to gather demographic information about our user base as a whole. My web STATS will recognize you as a returning visitor, but it does not tell us your name, address, or anything personal. Just that your computer has visited this site before. If you have cleared your cache of cookies since your last visit, it will not even know that much.
If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.
For users that register on this website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.
If you have an account on this site, or have left comments, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.
Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.
I rejoice when I see that my site has had returning visitors, but I could never track you down with that bit of information. It is totally harmless to you. I may sometimes put a tracking pixel with an ad, which will also recognize your return and perhaps serve up another ad of the type you saw last time, assuming that you like that topic. (That’s something that Google’s AdSense ads have done for many years; but I have yet to ever use a Tracking Pixel).
Again, unless you subscribe to my mailing list, or make a purchase, I have no way of discovering your email or name, etc. If you do subscribe I like to believe that you have chosen to trust me at least long enough to read some of my emails and get to know me better. I, Ruth, personally have very high Christian standards for my personal and business ethics. Therefore, from the very beginning of my life online, since 1999, I have bent backwards to be honest, fair, and to treat others with respect. All my email lists (tied to any of my websites) are double-optin, and do NOT start to mail to you until you have confirmed by clicking a link in the first confirmation email, that you truly did decide to subscribe. As soon as you wish to be done with my email list, you can click a link that is at the bottom of every email I send, which allows you to unsubscribe with a click. I will not hound you, or even try to ask why. I really do respect your privacy.
When I offer something for sale, you will need to click a link to a sales page but it will be on a secure server of a third-party that has all the encryption and whatever is necessary to complete the transaction with you to complete the sale. You are then switched back to me for followup. If you wish to reject cookies, you can still visit and read this website, but some features may be limited. To delete cookies you need to check with the helps for the settings of your particular browser. The exact instructions are a bit different for each one.
(You may notice when you get a brand new computer, you have no cookies, and so you have to hunt up the URL for favourite websites, and start over. So cookies do make your internet life easier).
IF I post any customer or client testimonial on my website, I always ask for permission first. If you have granted permission but change your mind, you just need to let me know and ask me to remove it. It is that easy.
