We respect your privacy!

Any and all the information collected on this site will be kept strictly confidential and will not be sold, reused, rented, disclosed, or loaned! Any information you provide will be held with the utmost care and will not be used in ways that you have not consented to.

Here are more details:

This privacy notice discloses the privacy practices for VivaOaxacaFolkArt.com. The owner of Viva Oaxaca is Philip Saviano, and the business is registered as A Sole Proprietorship in the City of Boston, MA USA. Great care has been taken to ensure the security and privacy of your transactions with us. Rest assured that your credit card information and other personal data will be treated with the highest standards of safety, security, and confidentiality.

Secure Shopping

For your security, orders submitted through our website are encrypted with SSL technology on both the client and server end. S-S-L is short for Secure Sockets Layer, a protocol developed by Netscape for transmitting private documents via the Internet. Your information sent via the Internet can be trusted to arrive privately and unaltered, to our server only. Wherever we collect sensitive information (such as credit card data), that information is encrypted and transmitted to us in a secure way. You can verify this by looking for a closed lock icon at the bottom of your web browser, or looking for "https" at the beginning of the address of all the web pages in our shopping cart.

Please note that E-mail is not encrypted, and is not considered a secure means of transmitting credit card numbers. If you're concerned about ordering online, you can always place your order by calling 617-983-5075, from 10:00 A.M. - 10:00 P.M. (Eastern Time) 7 days a week.

Information Collection, Use and Sharing

Viva Oaxaca Folk Art is committed to ensuring the privacy of its customers. We keep confidential any information you may enter during ordering.

We are the sole owners of the information collected on this site. We only have access to/collect information that you voluntarily give us via the website itself, via email or other direct contact from you. We will not sell or rent this information to anyone.

If you shop with us via VivaOaxacaFolkArt.com, we collect the following information about you: name, address, phone number, email address, billing information including credit card number and expiration date as well as the names, addresses and phone numbers of gift recipients (if any). We use your name, address, phone number, billing information/credit card information to process your order. The email address you provide is used for internal purposes, such as confirming and tracking your order or contacting you in case of a problem filling your order.

We will use your information to respond to you, regarding the reason you contacted us. We will not share your information with any third party outside of our organization, other than as necessary to fulfill your request, e.g. to ship an order.

Viva Oaxaca does not send unsolicited mail, unless it is a confirmation of a recent purchase or notice of shipping, or contact regarding a problem with your order.  The only general mailings we send out are to a list of customers who have specifically registered to join our email list. And we will never sell, rent, or lease addresses to 3rd parties.

The Magic of Cookies

We use "cookies" on this site. A cookie is a piece of data stored on a visitor's hard drive to help us improve your shopping experience on our site and to identify repeat visitors to our site. For example, if you place items in the shopping cart but do not immediately complete the purchase, the items will still be there waiting for you if you return to the cart later in the day. This is accomplished through the use of cookies. Cookies can also enable us to track and target the interests of our users. Shoppers who come to our website through clicking an ad on a Google search page are also tracked by cookies. This is to determine whether the user makes a purchase or not. The cookie that Google adds to a user's computer when he/she clicks on an ad expires in 30 days. This measure, and the fact that Google uses separate servers for conversion tracking and search results, protects the user's privacy.

Users who don't wish to participate in tracking activities can easily disable cookies by setting their Internet browser user preferences. Usage of a cookie is in no way linked to any personally identifiable information on our site.

Embedded Content From Other Websites

Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website. These websites, such as YouTube, may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracking your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.

Links to Third Party Sites

Our web site may contain links to other web sites operated and maintained by third parties, over which we have no control. Privacy policies on such linked sites may be different from our privacy policy. Accessing linked sites is at your own risk. You should always read the privacy policy of a linked site before disclosing any personal information on such sites.
