Why Do You Want To Know My Name, Address, And E-mail?
We only ask for your name, address, and/or e-mail address when you request a certain feature, product, or service from us. For example, we need to know where to ship your product, send our newsletter, or reach you for follow ups.

Do You Sell My Information To Anyone?

How Do You Make Sure Nobody Steals My Credit Card Information?
Natural Stone Interiors does not process your payments directly. We do not see, store, nor have access to your credit card information. Instead, we contract this service to Paypal at no cost to you.

Paypal is an eBay owned and operated Company which was founded in 1998. It enables any individual or business with an e-mail address to securely, easily, and quickly send and receive payments online. Paypal is encrypted with Secure Server Software (SSL) to ensure payments are processed securely. Find general information on Payal. Need to know more?

Do You Collect Information From Children?
Our site is not geared toward children. We do not knowingly collect information from children. If we learn that we have personal information on a child, we will delete that information from our system.

How Do You Collect Information About Me?
  • a. Information You Provide Us - Much of the personally identifiable information (your name, address, phone number, e-mail address, etc.) we receive comes directly from you. You may be asked to provide information when you request certain features, such as newsletters, free estimates, or when you make a purchase. You may also be asked to provide information when you participate in sweepstakes, contests, promotional offers, or other interactive areas of our site.

  • b. Technology - We collect information through technology to ensure our site is working properly, administer the site, analyze trends, track user's movement, and gather broad demographic information for aggregate use.

    For example, when you come to our site, we may collect your IP address. An IP address is often associated with the portal through which you enter the Internet, like your Internet service provider or your company. In itself, your IP address is not personally identifiable information.

  • c. Cookies - Like other web sites, our Web site uses cookies. A cookie is a small text file that a Web site can place on your computer's hard drive. For example, cookies can be used to collect information about your activities on the site or to make it possible for you to use an online shopping cart to keep track of items you wish to purchase. The cookie transmits this information back to the Web site's computer which, generally speaking, is the only computer that can read it.

    Many consumers do not know that cookies are being placed on their computers when they visit Web sites. If you want to know when this happens, or to prevent it from happening, you can set your browser to warn you when a Web site attempts to place a cookie on your computer. Each browser is a little different. Look at your browser's Help menu to learn the correct way to modify your cookies. If you turn cookies off, you may not have access to many features that make your Web experience smoother.
How Do You Use My Information?
  • a. Information You Provide Us - We use the information provided from you to communicate with you about your registration and customization preferences, our Terms of Service and Privacy Policy, supply products or services which you have requested, and other topics we think you might find of interest.

    For example, we may use your information to complete transactions requested by you. Sometimes we hire companies to help deliver products or services, like a shipping company that delivers a package or a company that helps fulfill prizes for a contest. In those instances, there is a need to share your information with these companies.

    If you purchase products or services from us, we'll note the type of services or products ordered or purchased, and the date of the order or purchase so we can follow up with you and /or the company that supplied or shipped the product.

  • b. Technology - We use this information to help us identify which areas of our site are of interest to you. We analyze the traffic patterns on our Web site, such as the frequency with which our guests visit various parts of our site. Aggregated information (information that does not personally identify you nor allow anyone to identify you individually) may be occasionally shared with our advertisers and business partners.

  • c. Cookies - We use cookies to allow you to use our services more easily. Cookies also help us keep track of statistical information which helps us improve our site.

    Cookies allow us to save passwords and preferences for you so that you won't have to re enter them the next time you visit. They also keep track of items in your online shopping cart so you don't have to re enter them while you continue to shop.

    In addition, as we continue to develop our business, we may sell, buy, merge, or partner with other companies or businesses. In such transactions, user information may be among the transferred assets. If we purchase a business, the personally identifiable information received with that business would be treated in accordance with this Privacy Policy, if it is practicable and permissible to do so.

    If we sell a business, we will include provisions in the selling contract requiring the purchaser to treat your personally identifiable information in the same manner required by this Privacy Policy including any amendments to this Privacy Policy.
How Do You Protect My Information?
We respect your privacy and do not make personal information available to third parties for promotional purposes. We do not sell, share, give, auction, or rent your e-mail address for promotional purposes.

You should note that E-mails which you send to us are not necessarily secure against interception. Do not include sensitive information in your email communications with us.

Affiliated sites, linked sites, and Natural-Stone-Interiors.com expects its partners, advertisers, and affiliates to respect the privacy of our users.

You should check the applicable privacy policy of those third parties when providing information on a page operated by a third party.
