SECTION 18 – CONTACT INFORMATION
Should you have questions about the Terms of Service, you may contact us via mail, message, or phone.
SECTION 1 – YOUR INFORMATION
When you purchase something from our store, as part of the buying and selling process, we collect the personal information you give us such as your name, address and email address.
When you browse our store, we also automatically receive your computer’s internet protocol (IP) address in order to provide us with information that helps us learn about your browser and operating system.
Email marketing (if applicable): With your permission, we may send you emails about our store, new products and other updates.
SECTION 2 – CONSENT
When you provide us with personal information to complete a transaction, verify your credit card, place an order, arrange for a delivery or return a purchase, we imply that you consent to our collecting it and using it for that specific reason only.
If you provide us with any photos, you consent to our collecting, using, and sharing these photos unless otherwise specified.
If we ask for your personal information for a secondary reason, like marketing, we will either ask you directly for your expressed consent, or provide you with an opportunity to say no.
SECTION 3 – DISCLOSURE
We may disclose your personal information if we are required by law to do so or if you violate our Terms of Service.
SECTION 4 – THIRD-PARTY SERVICES
In general, the third-party providers used by us will only collect, use and disclose your information to the extent necessary to allow them to perform the services they provide to us.
However, certain third-party service providers, such as payment gateways and other payment transaction processors, have their own privacy policies in respect to the information we are required to provide to them for your purchase-related transactions.
For these providers, we recommend that you read their privacy policies so you can understand the manner in which your personal information will be handled by these providers.
In particular, remember that certain providers may be located in or have facilities that are located in a different jurisdiction than either you or us. So if you elect to proceed with a transaction that involves the services of a third-party service provider, then your information may become subject to the laws of the jurisdiction(s) in which that service provider or its facilities are located.
As an example, if you are located in Canada and your transaction is processed by a payment gateway located in the United States, then your personal information used in completing that transaction may be subject to disclosure under United States legislation, including the Patriot Act.
When you click on links on our store, they may direct you away from our site. We are not responsible for the privacy practices of other sites and encourage you to read their privacy statements.
SECTION 5 – SECURITY
To protect your personal information, we take reasonable precautions and follow industry best practices to make sure it is not inappropriately lost, misused, accessed, disclosed, altered or destroyed.
If you provide us with your credit card information, the information is encrypted using secure socket layer technology (SSL) and encrypted. Although no method of transmission over the Internet or electronic storage is 100% secure, we follow all PCI-DSS requirements and implement additional generally accepted industry standards.
SECTION 6 – AGE OF CONSENT
By using this site, you represent that you are at least the age of majority in your state or province of residence, or that you are the age of majority in your state or province of residence and you have given us your consent to allow any of your minor dependents to use this site.
If our store is acquired or merged with another company, your information may be transferred to the new owners so that we may continue to sell products to you.
QUESTIONS AND CONTACT INFORMATION
If you would like to: access, correct, amend or delete any personal information we have about you, register a complaint, or simply want more information, you may do so on your account settings or you may contact us via mail, message, or phone.
We are a custom-cut fashion fabric business.
Every order is a custom order.
We are not a pick, pack and ship operation.
What does this mean for you?
- Your order will be prioritized by date and time of receipt. We honor that priority in all we do.
- Your credit card will not be charged until we are sure we can fill your fabric order, including all best match items. Once your credit card is charged, your fabric order is then custom cut to your specifications.
- Our goal is to fill your order within 3 business days, but certain factors may affect our ability to meet this goal.
How long does it take for my order to arrive?
- On average, orders arrive within 2 business days from shipment from our warehouse in Massachusetts. This may vary depending on your location. If you are located near the west coast or near the south coast, your order may arrive within 3 business days from shipment, while people who live in the New England Area may receive their order within 1 business day from shipment. Most orders placed in the morning will ship on the same day.
What slows down order fulfillment?
- A flood of orders within several days can prevent us from meeting our time tables. How You Can Help: If you absolutely must have your order by a specific date, please let us know when you place your order. We will do our best to expedite it. You can also choose a faster shipping option, but that alone will not let us know that you also want it expedited. This does not jeopardize fabric availability for orders that were placed earlier.
- Sometimes we have less fabric than you requested. We want you to have first dibs on the last cut, so we contact you with the information and wait for your decision.
- Sometimes order information including payment and/or delivery address is inaccurate. Please double-check your online entries before hitting the submit button. How You Can Help: When we contact you via phone or email, your quick response to our questions will move your order along faster.
Please note that we are a Monday-Friday warehouse. When calculating how long it will take to get your order, omit Sat/Sun as fulfillment days. We are always happy to let you know the status of your order via phone or email.
