Privacy Policies - security - our email list


The privacy of our customers is of the utmost importance to us.  We want our customers to feel comfortable and safe in ordering merchandise from us.  We want you to KNOW that we will respect and protect your privacy.  Although many of us are "out of the broom closet", there are still many who, for a wide variety of reasons, are not.  Rest assured, you will not be "outed" by us.  All of the personal ordering information you give us, including credit card information, remains confidential.  No one other than necessary office staff has access to that information.  And discarded paperwork containing any personal information is cross shredded and becomes mulch in our garden.  If we must contact you, we do so discreetly, and usually by email.  Your address and phone number are used for shipping and credit card verification.  Neither of these are ever added to any sort of bulk mail list.

We do not "harvest" names from those traveling through our website.  We do track movement through our website to best optimize our website for your convenience, but the information gathered is general in nature and does not contain any personal information.  Our shopping cart program DOES drop a "cookie" to keep track of the items in your shopping cart.  If you have disabled "cookies" on your computer, you will be unable to use the shopping cart.  See SHIPPING INFO for more details. 

All merchandise is shipped in neutral packaging, with a return address reading "The Blessed Bee".  If you make a purchase from us, your name is not "automatically" added to any mailing lists.  You must SPECIFICALLY REQUEST to be on our mailing list.  Our emailing list is just that...OURS.  We do not share it with anyone else and we do not sell it.  Your privacy is worth far more to us than that.

We do sent out occasional flyers, sales notices, community info, etc.  We rarely send out more than one email flyer per month.  If you would like to keep up to date with The Blessed Bee, this is a great way to do it!  You will receive advanced notice of sales and specials...some of which are only available to our Email List.  But you MUST REQUEST to be added to the list as it is STRICTLY an "opt in" list.  To be added to our email list, just email and let us know and we'll be sure you receive our next flyer.  Please be sure to type out your email address in the body of the email.  If at anytime you wish to be deleted, just email us and tell us to remove you from the list.  Asking us to remove your name from our list will NOT result in your email address ending up on spam lists. 

Our shopping cart employs the latest SSL (secure socket layer) technology so that your sensitive information, like credit card information, is safely transferredBy using the secure server (SSL), the information is encrypted before it is sent.  It would be practically impossible for anyone to decrypt it.  Please DO NOT EVER send credit card information to us through email, as email is NOT a secured transmission.  If you need to give us sensitive information outside of the shopping cart, always call our office on our tollfree number;  (800) 830-0693.
