Your privacy is critically important to us.
What personal data we collect and why we collect it
Certain visitors to Engraving Nation’s websites choose to interact with Engraving Nation in ways that require Engraving Nation to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Engraving Nation gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up for a blog at https://engravingnation.com to provide a username and email address.
When visitors leave comments on the site we collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.
If you upload images to the website, we suggest uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) excluded. Visitors to the website may be able to download and extract any location data from uploaded images on the website.
All inquiries through Engraving Nation’s website forms (including custom orders) are kept confidential and only intended to be seen by the Engraving Nation team and/or participating partners. However, at our discretion we reserve the right to share or publish positive remarks or feedback received as reviews on our website or social media.
We do not claim liability in event of a site / email hacking or abuse of the system.
Posting Photos About Your Order
We understand that some customers may not want their order to be posted on the website or social media. Thus, we only post pictures when we have explicit permission to do so. In the event that a customer changes their mind about granting us permission to use photos of their order on marketing materials, they may request we remove it by contacting us.
Like most website operators, Engraving Nation collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. Engraving Nation’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Engraving Nation’s visitors use its website. From time to time, Engraving Nation may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
Engraving Nation also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on https://engravingnation.com blog posts. Engraving Nation only discloses logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below.
The security of your Personal Information is important to us, but remember that no method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage is 100% secure. While we strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect your Personal Information, we cannot guarantee its absolute security.
