EMAIL LIST INFO
By supplying your email address on the Paper Panache home page and clicking Add Me!, you are consenting to receiving occasional site update announcements and marketing email from paperpanache.com. I don’t send a lot of email; usually every 4-6 weeks.
To opt out: You may unsubscribe easily by clicking the unsubscribe link in any announcement email you may receive from Paper Panache. Or click the envelope below to send me an unsubscribe email, and I will be happy to carry out your wishes.
Most recent announcement was sent May 16, 2020.
If you are not receiving expected email from Paper Panache
I have had delivery issues in the past* due to an aging email list. In May 2018 I used an email verification company to clean my email list of invalid and problem email addresses, and nearly 500 “risky” or invalid email addresses were removed--including one of my own! No online business can afford bounces, and the platform I am using will now CLEAN YOU OFF THE LIST if an announcement to you habitually bounces or if you don't open these emails from me.
I hope you will try to stick with me through this. If you're here, you obviously care, so
1. Contact me and I will check to see if your email still exists on my list. If not,
2. Please resubscribe, possibly using a different email address than formerly.
3. Check any spam/bulk mail folders you may have and whitelist (approve) the paperpanache email address in your email app if you find my email in there. If you're using webmail, attempt to whitelist my email address with your email provider.
4. Add a second email address to the list.
5. Clean out your inbox! Boxes that have reached their mail limit cause legitimate businesses to bounce email.
6. When you’re ready to stop receiving my mail, please click envelope below to send unsubscribe email. Please don’t mark Paper Panache email as spam.
Please note: In the end, I cannot guarantee receipt of announcement emails. There are many choke points that include your personal habits and usage of email, the limitations and rules of my subscription list provider, and rules and activities of your email service provider. Please consider popping over once a month to see what is available as a backup strategy.
I comply with the CAN SPAM Act of 2003, which became effective Jan. 1, 2004. When sending commercial email messages, emailers are required to 1) provide truthful subject labeling, 2) include clear opt-out instructions, and 3) include the sender’s physical mailing address.
I value your privacy because I value my own.
* Domains I had problems with in 2013-2015 included comcast, hotmail, aol, san.rr.com, embarqmail.com; columbus.rr.com, rstarmail.com, bell.net, juno.com, live.com, and orange.fr. I forced a re-signup of the mail list and over time the situation did improve.
I will NOT share, sell, trade, or give away ANY information about my customers. If another customer ever asks to contact you because they've seen your name or project on the site, I will forward their email to you and you can take it from there.
I collect personally identifiable information, including your name, address, email, certain payment details, and purchase history as part of any purchase you may make at this site, or when you send a message through a contact form, or subscribe to my update announcements/ marketing emails. I may also collect comments, feedback, product reviews, and recommendations that you may offer through email and messages at purchase.
Credit card information is collected by Paypal using their secure server. I do not store nor do I personally access credit card numbers.
By signing up for the email list, you are consenting to receive occasional site update announcements and marketing email from paperpanache.com. I can remove your name from the email list at any time, at your request.
Paper Panache has enjoyed posting your projects for many years. Along the way it has been stated, explicitly and implicitly, that I will share your projects with this website's community (and the world), and it has become customary to post your photos, name, location, and email verbiage when you send me these things by mail or email. I will occasionally seek particular permission if I feel your contribution involves third parties or is outside the parameters of a project.
You may deny or delete the posting of your projects/name/location/words at any time, either when you first send me the project email, or any time before or after it has been posted in order to have it brought down.
Third party access to data
My direct payment gateway is Paypal, which has its own requirements to ensure the secure handling of credit card information by my store.
I may contact you to notify you regarding a purchase, to resolve a dispute, to collect fees or monies owed, to poll your opinions through surveys or questionnaires, to send updates about my company, or as otherwise necessary to meet any agreement I may have with you. For these purposes I may contact you via email, telephone, text messages, and postal mail.
If you would like to correct, amend or delete any project or personal information I have about you, you are invited to email me or send mail to Paper Panache, PO Box 2124, Winnetka, CA 91396-2124.
