Beadworks Privacy Policy

Who we are

Beadworks owns and operates the website www.beadworks.com. Our privacy policy regarding the collection, use, and disclosure of personal information we receive from customers is fairly simple. Beadworks only uses customer information to better the customer’s experience in our bead stores. This includes keeping customers up to date with our latest store news, bead shows and events, as well as our monthly bead sales. We also for feedback on our quest to always improve our site and store. We are the sole owners of the information given to us by our customers in person or via email to set up accounts with our store.

How we collect your information

Simply put, we ask you. When you make a purchase, we will ask you if you’re in our system and, if you’re not, whether you want to be. If you do, great! We’ll enter your name and email address, as well as anything else you may want us to have, into our system. Usually, we’re asking so we can email you a copy of your receipt instead of printing it because we try to be as green as possible, and reducing the amount of paper in your wallet or purse is a small step in that direction. You’ll also start receiving our monthly newsletter and special promos. We’ll never spam your inbox, and you’ll always have the option to unsubcribe from our mailing list whenever you please.

Beadworks also ships from our stores, so if you have ever asked us to ship something to you in the past, we’ll have your mailing address stored in our system. If you are a part of our Wholesale Program, we will ask for your mailing address so that we may send you invitations to our Gem Shows. One thing we will never store on file is your credit card information, even if you have willingly provided it to us for phone orders.

What we do with your information

We’ll send you monthly newsletters, special offers, and digital receipts. As we’ve mentioned above, we’ll never spam you and you’re always welcome to unsubscribe any time. 

We do not share your information with anyone, nor will we ever sell your information to third parties.

Your rights

If at any point you want to know what information we have, you can always email us at beads@beadworks.com. You can also contact us via phone or email to update your information, correct any mistakes, or if you have any questions about how we use your information that isn’t covered on this page.

You may, at any point in time, contact us to remove yourself from our mailing lists or completely remove your account from our store. We’ll be sad to see you go, but we understand you’re moving, you’re no longer interested in our newsletters, or you’re not interested in gemstones, beads, and jewelry-making anymore.

If, for any reason, you feel that we are not abiding by this privacy policy, please contact us immediately. You can reach us via email at beads@beadworks.com

We value our customers and their privacy. We take every precaution to protect the relationships we have built in our community. We’re always available to resolve any uncertainties you may have about our privacy policy.
