Wizardknits.com Privacy Policy 

Updated: May 24, 2018

Our privacy policy is very basic and simple.

We do not share, and have no reason to share your personal information with any other organization.

All information you provide to us, no matter how or why you provide it (such as the information provided when ordering our products, particularly when an product is customized) is kept completely confidential, and used only for the purpose that you intended - to create a custom fit for your garment.

Only those employees with relevant business duties may access personal information, and even then, only to verify which "House" you belong to so they can gather the appropriate colors.

They are banished to Hobbie's own 100 Acre Woods for any privacy violation.

As part of our Privacy Policy, we promise never to provide any information about customers to any third party, except of course in the unusual event should we be required to do so by law.

We do use cookies, but only to track how a user found Hobbie's House of Wizard Wear, more specifically which search term was used to find our products.

Our "Contact Us" form does record your ISP. It simply provides us with a "picture" of where our potential customers come from. However, we do not track individual usage, and we do not tie the cookie to any personal information that you provide to us. We do not collect or combine any information that you provide to us with any other demographic information from any other sources.

We're too busy knitting!

So what is Hobbie's privacy policy? Basically, since we opened our virtual doors for business in November 2001, as a visitor to our site, we have no way of knowing that you are you.

Your visit to Hobbie's House and https://www.wizardknits.com is, and will remain, entirely private and anonymous.

However, as a customer, it is understood that we will need to collect some information in order to complete the business transaction.

Thank you for your interest in our custom made knitwear and taking the time to review our Privacy Policy.
